leave a comment »

Selecting the right MVVM framework for your project from the never ending list of available MVVM frameworks can be quite intimidating, plus there are some frameworks which support only Silverlight, Windows Phone 7 or WPF technology but not all. Jeremey Alles has hosted a simple Silverlight Control that list all MVVM frameworks with information such as popularity and unique features of such framework. This is quite handy if you want to decide the right framework of choice for your project.

We first heard Derwent Capital (a hedge fund) using twitter to gauge user sentiment to help drive it’s trading strategies, well now another big player is joining the league – Bloomberg will avail something similar soon..

The news and information group has struck a deal with WiseWindow, a syndicated data provider, to provide its real-time consumer sentiment measurement technology, Mobi, across Bloomberg’s network of 300,000 desktop terminals.WiseWindow claims the technology offers a three-week leading indicator of stock performance in key industry vehicles. It will initially provide Bloomberg with a consumer sentiment index around the airline industry as a whole, as well as vertical indices for customer service, pricing and scheduling within the industry itself.
