We recently moved out datacentre from Xerox to Azure solutions cutting the bill from $1.8m to little under $600,000 so these services are nothing to be scoffed at, the ability to spin up servers in seconds or have additional servers automatically spin up and down under load is a god send. We had to take a hit on licensing losing what we owned in perpetual licenses (some $300,000) in exchange and server costs but that will be recouped in the first six month's and office 365 is working out great for us as well
If you use windows media center
Buy the amulet voice remote for flawless speech control over tv, film and music. My blind parents have been using it for over 2 years and its the best speech implementation I've seen... Ever, check out my demo on YouTube search for "DIY speech enabled TV" you'll never go back to mashing buttons again or searching through lists for your films and tv series
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtRdwPuw1lk please check out this video of my voice controlled media centre made for my blind parents. it is used day in, day out flawlessly for over 2 years and makes their lives so much easier. Voice tech is so much quicker and easier when controlling media, you should all be using it!
My parents are both blind and voice control with media centre is a brilliant gift to them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtRdwPuw1lk such commands as copy DVD, play movie battleship, play artist Abba, record formation street next Wednesday on ITV, are all possible and faster than using any mouse or keyboard to find media. All set up for about £400
I'll have red and blue or maybe yellow.. I'm into WP7, all my music comes through zunepass, which share the same account on both the WP7 phones (using the same email address) and is used in my parent home cinema and in my own home. I'll wait till November for the phone and buy them unlocked using the additional Nokia stocks I picked up during the price crash at the launch..
then I'll just have to wait for a pink and blue surface to arrive :)
Ahhh El Reg
I see my replies are now being dismissed / censored / whatever. Very well El reg, I'm off, you're site and obviously now your moderators seem be a bunch of elitists passing judgments that sway to the minority rather than reporting to the majority, and of which the majority of who rarely know what the hell they are on about or what foundations today’s business is built on.
Just to clarify I enjoy reading and arguing the comments from other OS users and in some cases they raise valid points but I'm not staying around a place that censors my replies to validate my side of an argument,
