    Hello,

    I am excited a out multitouch technology from the first time microsoft demoed Surface. Win7 include native multitouch support which is nice but there are not a lot of monitors that support it. You have written about such devices in the windows team blog -I could not find how to send you email there- . I intend to buy a new pc with multitouch but I live in the middle east but my brother sudy in USA. I have seen good choices from HP with HD but I will see if I can buy the monitor only and buy the rest from here. I read a little about the different touch technology, and I was wondering about the optical technology. How many touch points? And can I use a stylus for writing and drawing.
    I would to hear you advice, if it is not a bother.

    Hi, Brandon.

    I am the admin assistant for a non-profit and I have been trying to find some basic tips for using Windows Live calendar. I found your video on sharing the calendar – but it has been removed. Any chance you could send me a link to where I can find the steps to share the calendar with mobile devices?

    Many thanks,
    judy b.

    Hi Mr. LeBlanc,

    Frankly, it’s very difficult to find a Microsoft staff I can trust in China. Would you please send me an email? I would like to show you my prototype product to beat against Apple iPad. This comment is not a advertisement or any other about sales. I really want to find a way to get Microsoft official support if possible.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    @Tony Wang – unfortunately I’m not the right person that can look at your prototype.

    @non-profit – I am looking for that video and unable to find it. However, stay tuned. I know of some colleagues of mine who are working up some completely new content on Windows Live Calendar that might be of interest to you!

    @Mohammad – we just posted about a awesome multitouch monitor from Dell over on the Windows Experience Blog you should look into! See the post here: http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b/windowsexperience/archive/2010/08/13/dell-sx2210t-21-5-multi-touch-monitor.aspx

    Hello, Brandon LeBlanc. I apologize for troubling you, tell me. And where you can buy those stickers on the cover of the notebook. Which you have, such as Bing. It is possible to get them through normal mail. Thank you.

    Hello Brandon,

    i am a 29 years old musician-violinist from slovakia central europe.
    I read just now an article about given notebooks from microsoft.

    hm…In middle of this mail I realized that it was 4 years ago, but I decided to finish this mail anyway.

    And the point is:
    If you dont need this notebook, I would appreciate to become it as a gift.
    The thing is I dont have a computer by myself, only my family.
    Music is not payed well…
    I know this is completly nonsense… now.
    but anyway if microsoft will give you another one and you dont need it…:)
    though a mac would be for making music better

    I have liked reading your articles/blogs for several years … people like you are the reason Microsoft rocks. You should be proud to be a geek and don’t worry about the nerd part … social trouble comes with being a geek (g).

    I was surprised to find myself saying ‘yes, that’s me … oh, yeah, I like that, too …’ to about 90% of your geek vs. nerd list … been soldering motherboards since 1981 … back when it was weird to be a girl geek … (g)

    Glad I found your site …

    Hi Brandon,
    I heard about the great Windows contest today and it set me into motion to get a pitch video together in the nick of time. Due to compression and rendering it simply wasn’t possible to make the deadline as I received it 30 mins to close, but I did the video in the hopes that you can put it in the right hands for those making the decision for the final cut. I am a host for Jiggy.TV as well as a producer of real tv as opposed to reality tv and think that I could rock that PC contest! I would be forever indebted if you passed it on to the main decision makers in the hopes that they put it up on the voting page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFaRsHiL_oI

    Thank you so much for taking the time to help me!

    Hello,

    My name is Stefanie and I am a photo researcher for Bill Smith Group. We are currently working with Pearson Education on a Web 2.0 title and the author would like to use screenshots from your blog. Here are the links to the pages she’d like to use: http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b/bloggingwindows/ and http://windowsteamblog.com/windows/b/bloggingwindows/rss.aspx.

    Is there a way I could contact you to discuss getting your permission to use these screenshots? Thanks!

    Hi Brandon,

    I see you’ve been in touch with Stefanie (see comments below). I’m the author of the Web 2.0 book. I’ve been told that Pearson is still waiting for the okay to use these screenshots. I’m being pressured to either change or remove these images because we’ve not yet heard from you. I’m under a very tight deadline and would really like to use your blog (and the screenshots) for my examples. Can you please get in touch with either Stefanie (stefanie@billstudiogroup.com) or me (dcoyle@mc3.edu) at your earliest convenience? I’d be really grateful! Thanks so much :-)

    Cheers,
    Diane

    Hi Brandon I have signed up for MSFlight beta but did not get in (sad face here ) Is there anyway you could get me in this beta ? I was really looking forward to this and did not make it in .

    You speak lovingly of Microsoft Image Composer which has been discontinued. I’ve lost my FP2000 so can’t load it onto my Win7 machine. Nor will it copy from my old XP PC (unless you know a cunning way to do that…).
    Anyway, would it REALLY be such a hassle for MS to put MIC in the download centre?

  • Marilyn

    Hi Brandon, I moved into what I suppose is your old apartment in Bushwick and have some important-looking mail for you. Please email me at myannfu@gmail.com to get a hold of it. Cheers, Marilyn

      Hi Marilyn, I think you might have a different Brandon. I never lived in an apartment in Bushwick.

    Dear Mr. Leblanc,

    My name is Vineet Kosaraju and I am a reporter for the Harker High School. I am writing an article about the Windows 8 release for our national award-winning school newspaper, The Winged Post, and was wondering if I could ask you a few questions which I could include as part of my article. My email is “16vineetk@students.harker.org.” Could you please send me an email so that I can set up a time and/or ask you the questions? I tried sending the email to “Brandon.leblanc@microsoft.com” but it bounced back.

    Thanks,
    Vineet
