  • 2,5 Biolion only for one game ?

    @TexasToast:
    I would be totally fine by that if I am this rich.

  • 2,5 Biolion only for one game ?

    It is causing gamers unrest actually. Because that much of money would be very useful to create first party studios for exclusive games. Thus, MS doesn't have to buy exclusive rights from 3rd party.

  • One Windows rumor is feeling not much a rumor anymore.

    With such crazy deal, one starts to wonder what's their true intention. MS stop calling Windows Phone. The old rumor of Windows with phone capability. A game that works better with tablet screen and unofficially described the purchase of developer is for Mobile push. I don't think we will see Windows with phone capabilities in Windows 9, but, it appears Windows 10 will be the single OS for desktop, tablet, and phone.

    Rumor of course.

  • Windows 9 Leaks

    Thanks, the video is very helpful. I like what I see so far. The app opens up in Normal or Maximized windowed mode with taskbar present all the time, just like regular Windows. Exactly what I wanted. I am glad they finally acknowledge the business users and existing use cases that are familiarized by every Windows users.

    And they still have full screen mode, which I think is good. Seems like they down play the full screen mode though. Like it has to use the "..." menu. I wish they can just include the full screen button somewhere in the title. Although I can't think of a better way either. Placing it next to the close button will be confusing with maximize.

    Anyway, I am guessing they don't have Metro Snap? I mean, it doesn't make much sense to have Areo Snap and Metro Snap, especially the apps are encouraged to be in Windowed mode. Although, Metro Snap is needed for tablet environment. Metro Snap is probably still there.

    For whatever it is worth, I think it is an OS that is more business friendly. And something my brother would get into. And something I can shove it to my dad once everyone saying it is good and force my dad to agree.

    From the look of it, this is what Windows 8 should have been. The next thing I really want to see, is how business can run their own internal app store server, to publish their own apps or deal with licensing with external apps. I think that is the logical step to make metro an attractive platform for business.

    Just for clarification. Not everyone wants Metro app gone. People like me want to run Metro app in both Windowed mode and Full Screen mode, aka pre-installed ModernMix.

  • Microsoft Lumia & [insert phone] for Windows

    Since there is a rumor about having the same OS on tablet and phone, I will wait and see. Not much opinion for now. I think Windows Phone is too long. Windows is somewhat confusing. But, I am going to wait and see what's going on. In the meanwhile, irritated that AT&T only has 830 for this year. Where is the special top phone for this year. I felt bad for waiting this long and ended up getting older 15xx or less awesome 830.

  • 5 million Gmail passwords leaked

    I wonder Google is incapable of detecting leak or the leak isn't their own fault.

  • Apple exemplifies everything that's wrong with Silicon Valley

    As much as I refused to use iPhone from day one and still going strong, I think iPhone and iPad is amazing tech that reshaped how business operates for the better.

    So, I disagree completely. Especially I do not see any mathematical statistical study that properly concludes suggested result to implicate lack of impact.

    Who said it was?


    I don't know. The article was talking about some % which I assume is stock change. The article doesn't make any sense to me, so, I honestly don't know what it was taking about.
