  • What Windows needs

    @magicalclick:Yeah,  I guess that's why Windows has been such a failure with only 90% market share.  Its marketing and not open source and better ideas like Cortana that will make it successful.

  • Need a Windows Phone app for this...

    We need a list of all the apps that are on android and iOS that are not on windows.  Then Microsoft should take this list and give money to the authors/companies/vendors to create these apps.    It is not about independent developers making apps, but more about bigger companies supporting windows phones as they roll out there android or iOS app. 

    Like WeMo is getting popular and of course only iOS and Android supported. 


    Microsoft has to find a way to stop being ignored or like EvilDictator mentions just make Android apps run on Window phone.

  • Need a Windows Phone app for this...

    @daSmirnov: Android apps running on the phone would help windows phone sales,  and as windows phone sales go up,  more developers get interested and develop native apps for it.    If nobody is buying the phone because a lot of apps for airlines, or hardware support are not there,  the phone dies and there wont be any developers anyway.    You have to think this through.    More windows phone sales is the only way to survive here.

  • Running the Oculus Rift DK2

    Yes, with current hardware it is going to be geeks only at first, but that will change and we will rapidly get to the stage where it won't be necessary to wear a headset (some kind of 'retina beaming' technology maybe?)

    And after that,  we bypass the eyeball and go directly to the nerves behind the eyeball with a embedded electrical probe emulating vision.   Eventually, we are put in pods and live in a virtual world.  Sounds great.  My advice, go and get a real life.

  • Need a Windows Phone app for this...

    I have to agree with windows phone problem of not having apps on popular hardware.  Its always Android and iOS apps but not windows phone app.   The only thing Microsoft can do is make a windows phone app almost identical to a windows application.   Windows is usually always supported.   This is what they are trying to do with unified apps where a lot of code is shared.   If they can get this right there might be some hope for the windows phone.

  • Running the Oculus Rift DK2

    I can see your excited by this technology but I have to disagree about this being the biggest thing this century.   VR has been around awhile and Oculus is making it a consumer item, but I am sorry putting myself into a VR world is only just a cool experience.   It is not like it is a cure for cancer.   Heck, I think Lasik is a better invention letting people get rid of their glasses and contacts.  

    Anyway,  can I play counterstrike using these yet?  When I can, maybe I put in my order.

  • Media Center Woes

    Yeah not free, but I bought it and it still works well.

  • I dont find the App store that bad what about the rest of the Niners Community

    What they will eventually do is make you pay to get your app on the top of the list.  So if you make a Zip app and want people to see you first, pay the most money.  Microsoft asks you how much you are willing to pay to get it to the top.  Not a lot different than Google searches.   Pay to be on top and people pick your app/website. 

    I personally only look for apps authored by large companies or have been vetted by a large amount of people.   Everything else just looks like useless crap or a wrapper around a website.  I agree with many others here,  I would rather have a few good quality apps than a large number of junk apps.  

  • I can't tell if serious

    The new Google Glasses for poor folk.

  • A C++ version of the Microsoft Enterprise Library

    It is probably because all he knows is C++.  How about assembly.  Should would all start writing Database access code in assembly.   I know I could shave off some time in loading a webpage using assembly.  It might take me a month to perfect it.   Its like cutting down trees to build your house instead of going to the lumber yard and buying pre-cut wood.
