Microsoft MIX08... Innotive Presenting
I arrived in Las Vegas this evening to attend Microsoft MIX08. I was suppose to be here a couple days ago, but I got sidetracked to Orange County for good reasons that I'll blog about later.
Anyway, my friends Jimmy and Peter are here since Innotive is presenting. Jimmy was part of a panel today:

You'll hear how design has created real competitive advantage for businesses across the spectrum from consumer to business brands. Hear from the design professionals who did the work, and the customers who hired them.

Come see how customizable user interfaces were created by extending XAML in a way that integrates various content formats into a single consistent UI.

I posted before about what they built using Microsoft's Silverlight, but here are some other general demos:
