Microsoft burries it's past failures (plus iphone and blackberry)...These people work at Microsoft. To celebrate the release to manufacturing of Windows Phone 7—which means it's now market-ready—they took the streets carryi!ng a dead giant iPhone and BlackBerry, followed by a parade.

Steve Ballmer is fucking insane. Although Windows Phone 7 sure looks awesome...
Yea, after I saw the demos, it definitely seems like they got something here that can blow Apple away. Now all they need is a great marketing campaign.

I'd prefer it, if this doesn't catch the eye of the public ( in adverts and stuff ).
Just because I think that fan boys and girls alike would all be like: "Apple/Microsoft is sooo much better than Microsoft/Apple"

I remember those days when Xbox 360 and PS 3 came out. Arguments over arguments over stupid things. Arguments really piss me off =/

Clearly you haven't seen an Icuylr thread. These things are already happening on any post anywhere on the internet involving the iPhone or Macs...

WP7 ftw! Even though I personally hate these overly sophisticated smartphones.

Welcome to 2010, where when so many features have already been had that innovation can only possibly mean getting rid of some important ones.

Apples fanboys unite?

The only way to stop arguing would be A) Bomb apple/MS B) Just accept people can use different things based on preferences.

I personally will stick with iOS :)

    So what's the whole reforged situation? Do we have to run the classic version bootleg now?
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    My boyfriend is super into Bethesda modding so I'm probably going to join him in that for a bit, then move on to making mobile/browser games.

    I mostly just want to look at my old projects because I know I posted uploads on here somewhere.

  • jonas jonas:
    xD
  • jonas jonas:
    I think you can still run the original game, just there's a chance your map won't work with the newer patches
  • jonas jonas:
    what development framework have you been looking at for mobile development?
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm currently creating (as a hobby) a space invaders like game for mobile using Xamarin, after starting a few larger projects that I also may not have finished :rolleyes::p
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome! you should look at the Atari VCS platform it does not have a huge user base but the one it has is super active at around 11k and they have no games in there store

    If I could use something Python compatible it would save me some learning
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    But Unity might be easiest
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    looking at old posts here makes me happy. Makes me be all like "wow I was pretty smart in 2009"
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    mostly failing at life through adulthood really demotivated me for a while
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    ....what I don't get is why the fuck they would force us to permanently convert to a version of the game everyone fucking hated : \
  • C Cherry.Grove:
    Raid Shadow Legends texture pack smh
  • jonas jonas:
    Most people fail at life throughout their adulthood. Sometimes we get to learn from it. Usually it just feels like crap.
