Curious as to when you were moved into the UI designer group - or when they were moved to your group. Your "My Team" links have changed drastically since, if I remember correctly, last week...
Yea, it's a little odd looking. The short answer is that they report to my manager. Thus my team. Harry Caldwell is my manager and he has two groups. His Partner team and the team of IT Pro Evangelist.
The upside is that I get exposed to a completely different business segment. Besides, I used to be a pretty good UI designer myself when I programming Windows applications. :-)
New Zune looks great, nice to be able to utilize a browser since it is already on wi-fi. Any Bluetooth though?? Challenge has been to listen to tunes in kitchen, deck, and living room with full control on wireless handheld device. Closest thing for a while was ipod touch remote app but it has to stream trough itunes on computer and then to airport express. It would be best to stream through Zune or ipod to airport express directly of course but...
Next best solution has been to hack up Bluetooth stereo headphones putting RCA jacks on wires to speakers. It's pretty easy and I can stream music on device or from Pandora to stereo. Works on ipod and Blackberry but not Zune if no Bluetooth. Maybe Zune could have a device working like Airtunes with direct stream?
Don't forget to terminate Bluetooth connection after done or whole house might hear when call comes in on Blackberry...
