My first feedback for Windows 8 has nothing to do with the OS and everything to do with the remote viewing of the Build conference. I am currently on my way to Portland for the www.smbmvptour.com stops and prior to that I was in a hotel in Palm Springs. So I’m on a slow hotel connection or a 5 gig capped mifi or a slower aircard with an unlimited cap.
So if I watch it on the site I get a LOT of buffering buffering. If I want to download it for the plane right to watch the smallest file is a 2 gig TWO GIG download!
I mean come on 2 gigs? For a two hour keynote video? We’re not talking high def Lady Gaga video people. How about tuning down that to a more reasonably sized download.
Okay so it’s 1.95 gig to be exact but come on Steven… I tried downloading it last night and at midnight my hotel connection timed out and wanted the room credentials again. It timed out at 72% of a download.
There’s no way I can download it before I get on the plane to San Francisco/Portland.
How about a metro tablet sized download of the video to start with so I can watch it on a space limited/bandwidth challenged device?
