Microsoft Surface Has Twitter Client And Some Nice Healthcare Related Software

Posted Jul 18 2009 10:42pm

This has to be the ultimate for using Twitter, SurfaceTwitter using Windows Presentation Foundation.  Surface is very cool and not too long ago I had the opportunity to do some protein folding on Surface, which was very cool.  Not too long ago Microsoft stated they were working on an even larger Surface hardware/software application and table that will be dedicated for use with healthcare too, so stay tuned as more information on the healthcare side emerges with Surface.  BD 


The capabilities of SurfaceTwitter are:

  • Show the 25 most recent Tweets in a “ScatterView” control, making each Tweet a movable and resizable object on the Surface.
  • Automatically detect the presence of a TwitPic picture linked in a Tweet and display the picture’s thumbnail attached to the tweet it belongs to.
  • Mark Mentions (of the person currently logged in) by coloring the Tweet window blue.
  • Send Tweets using the Surface on-screen keyboard.
