Very often it can be useful to be able to turn your PC remotely, whether it's local network at home or office whether to use the Internet to do so. We know that it is basically easy to do the reverse operation off once we have control of your PC ... but how to turn it on?

When we decide to develop an application, such as for WP7, using the MVVM pattern but without adopting an available framework (see MVVMLight, Caliburn Micro, ...) we can expect to have to solve some problems for guarantee decoupling between the UI and presentation and business logic. One of these problems can be for example the need to display a MessageBox, a component of the IU, starting from a method of ViewModel corresponding to the page in which we stand. This problem can be solved by implementing a service that will be "injected" into the ViewModel and that task will be to display the MessageBox on request. Because we must ensure that there isn’t strict dependence between the ViewModel and the implementation of the service, we must think in terms of interfaces. We can define an interface for that service in order to give the possibility to implement it from time to time in a different way, in our case we realize that the implementation will make use of the MessageBox from which we take a starting p ...
After abandoning support for the development of smart devices with the. Net Compact Framework in Visual Studio 2010, Microsoft seems to be back on his feet.
