Default Lots of Talking About (Your?) Kin

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.pcworld.com/article/200282/microsoft_kin_four_features_that_windows_phone_7_needs.html' target='_blank'>http://www.pcworld.com/article/2002...ne_7_needs.html</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"With its Kin line of phones killed, Microsoft has announced that the people who worked on those devices will join the Windows Phone 7 team, incorporating Kin concepts and technology into Microsoft's upcoming mobile OS. Despite up-and-down reviews, Kin did have some redeeming qualities. Even though feature creep is a dangerous thing, here are four things that should make the leap from Kin to Windows Phone 7."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//wpt/auto/1278118629.usr110171.png" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Well, it seems it takes the action of killing a product in order to stimulate some conversation about it. I've read more about the Microsoft Kin product in the last two days than the entire time during its planning and eventual release. Jared Newman of PC World has written an article that describes four of the features he'd like to see salvaged from the Kin product and moved over onto the Windows Phone 7 platform. One of those features he mentions is Kin Studio, and I have to say I agree wholeheartedly. Kin Studio is a very interesting application that really showcases the potential of cloud computing, with its syncing of photos and videos and other features. I hope we see this happen because I'd personally like to give this a try, and I would never have done so on the Kin.</p>
