I love the fact that Windows Azure Introductory Special offer has been extended till September 30 2011, other news are very good as well , IIS streaming , Azure AppFabric Caching service (next 30days) and CTP of Windows Azure Traffic Manager( will allow balance application performance across geographical areas ).
