Software pick of the week

TWiT for Windows Phone by Dmitry Lyalin. Now remembers where you are in an audio or video podcast and resumes from there, can listen in on live shows, and has auto-updating live tile with two most recent podcast episodes.

Software pick of the week #2

Windows Phone 7 Connector 2.0 for Mac and Zune 4.8 - Get ready for Windows Phone 7.5 with these new sync tool versions.

Enterprise pick of the week

AppFabric (both the on prem and cloud versions -- will the two ever meet?)

Codename pick of the week

Windows 8 (remember -- it's *just* a codename -- or is it?)

Audible pick of the week

In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir by Dick Cheney, with Liz Cheney; narrated by Edward Herrmann. Insider account of the Bush White House from the former vice president, plus of course his entire political history. Fascinating because of the history he witnessed and of course affected.
