Just when you thought the .NET Framework couldn't get any smaller 

I've been programming using the .NET Compact Framework for a little while now, and enjoying how easy it makes development on portable devices such as PocketPCs.

Well it seems that Microsoft are taking this one step further with the introduction of the TinyCLR. In a nutshell, it is a cut down version of the .NET Framework which is embedded right in the processor of devices using Smart Personal Object Technology (or SPOT). So developers can write managed applications which essentially target an embedded microcontroller. This sounds like one interesting piece of technology, and one I'll be keeping a keen eye on.

And I'd love one of those MSN Direct watches. It's a shame the're currently only for the USA/Canada market
