We mentioned Neurons awhile back. It's a video streaming app dedicated to science and features TED Talks, Fora.TV, Science Dump and The RSA. Designed by Justin Angel, it's quite useful and nicely laid out.
It's free, available now and quite impressive. Unlike the TED app which I covered last week (see here), this will work over 3G, making it much more practical. It's open source, meaning anyone can improve upon it if they wish and integrates with the Music & Video hub nicely (i.e. previously watched material shows up).
The program is solid and has some nice pizazz to it. Highly recommended for those interested in all areas of science.

He has been here covering Microsoft since 2007 when this site was called WMExperts (and later Windows Phone Central). His interests include Windows, Microsoft Surface, laptops, next-gen computing, and for some reason, watches. Before all this tech stuff, he worked on a Ph.D. in linguistics and ran the projectors at movie theaters, which has done absolutely nothing for his career.
I don't think Microsoft "gets" cell phones. Take their ad campaign. Who ever said that smart phone owners want to spend less time on their phones? That's what the phone promises to allow....
Au contraire. The people who said it were the people polled by Microsoft in a survey done on adults, I believe on 2,000. The number one complaint was the behavior of other people on cell phones. That's why these ads have resonated so much with people.
