HTC Leo Emulator Skin for MSDevice Emulator

If you are familiar with Microsoft Device Emulator and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 tools, then you will find the work of XDA member FreeDee regarding renewing the default outdated image neat. Also, we have new features like WVGA Emulator window and support of FullHD (or higher). 32 and 64 bit Windows OS are supported.

[Emulator Skin] HTC HD2 Emulator Skin for Device Emulator / Visual Studio Designer

Hey,

this is my first contribution here on xda-developers and I hope you like it.

Overview
I’ve created a new skin for Microsoft Device Emulator and the designer view of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (2005). It is based on the HTC HD2 device and it looks so much more appealing than the outdated Pocket PC skin that the emulator / vs uses by default.
In addition to the improved looks, the skin offers more advantages:
The WVGA Emulator window now vertically fits on your desktop when using FullHD (1920×1080) resolution (or higher).
You have most of the buttons that modern devices use available: Send, Home, Start Menu, Back, End.
Modernized Windows Mobile application development/debugging experience.
(I know of the imminent release of the first Windows Phone devices, but I’m sure development for WM will continue for quite a while, especially on xda-developers. )

You can find more information in the application thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
