I heard this from somewhere before

November 4, 2011

Microsoft is at it again, the Windows 8 team to be exact, has found a great way to preserve battery life even if you have lots of ‘Live Tiles’ turned on:

Thus, for Windows 8 we architected a push-based service. This was a big decision because it meant we would need to build a platform at a global scale, eventually powering the tiles for hundreds of thousands of apps and over a billion people. But the value was clear: developers would get super-efficient real-time notifications to their customers for free, without having to build or maintain their own persistent connections to the client.

They’re calling it, ..wait for it.. Windows Push Notification Service! And they even made a shorten name for it, like they always do: WNS.

Perhaps it’s the late hour, I swear I heard that name somewhere before, but no matter how hard I try I can’t put my finger on it.
