I usually hear Paul Thurrott on Windows Weekly podcast but this week he was in New Zealand for TechEd. This local podcast with Paul, & Aussie Microsoft MVP Alan Burchillis, is worth a listen for Aussie/Kiwis interested in the new wave of products & services from Microsoft.
A special NZ Tech Podcast episode recorded following Microsoft’s Tech Ed 2012 event in Auckland, New Zealand. Featuring discussions with keynote speaker Paul Thurrott (USA) and Microsoft MVP Alan Burchill (Australia). A variety of Microsoft related topics were discussed including announcements and news around Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Phone 8 handsets from Nokia (Lumia 820, 920) and Samsung (Ativ S). Running time: 1:05:35
Thanks to Paul, and Bradley Borrows, this edition of Windows Weekly had a few hobbity mentions
Nokia announcements, HTC announcements, Windows Server 2012 launch, Bing it on, and more.

At one point Paul mentions funny Kiwi money. When I first went to the US in 2004 a nz$1 was worth about us$0.60. It’s currently about us$0.82, & climbing, and not because our economy has improved! At least you can see the difference between our notes!
Kathy Sierra asks “Does the US suck at design?” beginning with a comparison of US and Swiss currency. I read the start of the post thinking she’d probably like NZ currency only to find, further on, she does as citing the nz$5 bill which features Hillary and a penguin!
