Microsoft on Monday announced details regarding Windows Phone 7 Series’ application store, software development kit and user interface.As leaked documents hinted in February, the Silverlight and XNA programming environments will play major roles for third-party software developers. Microsoft previewed the software toolkits at its MIX developer conference this morning.“I think we’ve been very clear since we first started talking about [Windows Phone 7 Series] that it represents a sea change for Microsoft,” said Charlie Kindel, manager of Microsoft’s Windows Phone App Platform and Developer Experience program, in a phone interview with Wired.com. “We’ve revamped just about every aspect of how we build phone software, ranging from how we think about customers to how we do the engineering for the product.”Windows Phone 7 Series is Microsoft’s reboot of its mobile platform previously named Windows Mobile. Though Windows Mobile established an early lead as the smartphone operating system of choice, the platform last year suffered significant losses in market share in the mobile OS space, while Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android platform continued to see healthy growth.
Late last week, China’s Industry and Information Technology Minister Li Yizhong was quoted in reports as warning Google not to allow unfiltered search results inside the country, a move that would be viewed as “unfriendly and irresponsible.”Li reportedly said there would be “consequences” for the company if it failed to comply. See full story on China’s warning to Google.Tuesday, a Dow Jones Newswires report cited China’s Commerce Ministry as repeating the warning to Google to obey the censorship laws.Google Inc. (GOOG 563.18, -16.36, -2.82%) had announced earlier this year that it might close its Chinese operations following what it said were cyber-attacks aimed in part at hacking Google email users criticizing human rights and Communist rule in the country.This also means that Google will unlikely be able to take part in joint ventures with others in China. In early February, Reuters reported that Google is a member of a consortium led by Disney, to buy a large stake in Bus Online, a large Chinese advertising company.

For all the clamor that surrounds David Beckham, there was little angst in England over the fact that a torn left Achilles’ tendon has knocked the Galaxy midfielder out of the World Cup.Beckham, 34, underwent surgery in Finland on Monday evening, after which the specialist who performed the procedure, Dr. Sakari Orava, revealed that the player had “totally torn” the tendon and would be sidelined for at least six months.”The operation lasted just under an hour,” Orava told the Associated Press. “It went very well. He will have to take it very easy during the next two to three weeks or a month, and then he will continue with a recuperation program slowly. The foot won’t take much strain for two to three months.”The World Cup begins on June 11 in South Africa.Meanwhile, Bruce Arena, the Galaxy’s coach and general manager, said in a statement, “David remains an important player for the Galaxy and we look forward to welcoming him back and assisting in his recovery.”
avid Beckham will miss the World Cup and most if not all the Los Angeles Galaxy season after tearing his left Achilles’ tendon Sunday while playing for AC Milan.
His international career for England is all but over. It remains to be seen how much he’ll have left for the Galaxy and Major League Soccer.
“He will miss the World Cup for sure,” a person familiar with the injury told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because an official announcement had not been made. The person said it was likely the 34-year-old midfielder will play again.
Beckham was injured without getting hit during AC Milan’s 1-0 Italian League win over visiting Chievo Verona.
With only a few minutes remaining and the score 0-0, Beckham was by himself with the ball at his feet, shifted his weight and reached a hand down to his left heel. Beckham then stood up and snapped his wrists like he was breaking a twig in half in a gesture to show the AC Milan bench he knew the tendon was broken.
Visibly in pain and in tears, Beckham went to the sideline for medical attention, leaving Milan a man short because all three substitutes had been used.
“He felt the muscle begin to come up, which is a typical symptom when you break an Achilles’ tendon,” Milan coach Leonardo told Sky. “This is a real blow.”
Sky reported that Beckham said, ‘It’s broken, it’s broken,” when he came off.
Club physician Jean Pierre Meersseman told Italy’s Sky TV that Beckham will fly to Finland, where he will be treated by specialist surgeon Dr. Sakari Orava.
