  • WinMob7 Rumours

    I don't think that's strictly true. MS was bashing away at Palm for years, without making much headway. The rot set in when the Palm user base became obsessed with the lack of multitasking in PalmOS. Coupled with some stunningly bad product releases and bad management, the company eventually fell from grace.

    MS won by default because there was nowhere else to go, and I think that's proven by the near collapse of Winmob in the consumer space at the hands of a device which, oddly enough, lacks multitasking.


    Yeah and Palm pretty much saved themselves with webOS.

  • Which toolbar looks better?

    Don't like either. Way too much black, and this comes from a person who uses a dark theme.

    1000 developers. That explains a lot actually.

    Ina Fried: Ask about how many developers Microsoft mobile division has.


    Steve Jobs: What 9000?!?!!!!!!

    Eric Schmidt: That can't be!!!!!!!!!!!!



    Sorry. Sad

  • curly bracket placement thread

    in C# I do



    if (blah)






    Which I guess is the "Java" syntax which seems to be commonly used in C#.


    Basically curly bracket on each line:


    in C I do


    if (blah) {

    } else {



    Which is the Linux/K&R syntax used in most POSIX software.


    Basically I just follow the convention I see in most C# code, and most C code. Although, Mono C# code has it's own distinct style which is based on K&R syntax. To some C# developers reading Mono code looks almost like an alien language. Smiley

  • OnLive

    Oh please, I didn't "spam" the thread. I searched to see if there was a discussion about OnLive previously, there was (in the same year, no less), so I posted here rather than starting another thread with exactly the same title, about exactly the same subject. Perhaps a bit less anality is called for... or were you just enjoying your "bah humbug" moment too much? I mean, Enron? Really?


    And yes, it's possible that OnLive might not be released; just about anything is possible. But it looks like they've solved the big technological hurdles, they have an impressive array of publishers behind them and they have people actually beta testing the service. I'm not going to say it's a slam dunk, but it's looking a lot more solid than "pie in the sky" where all you have is marketroids with PowerPoint talking about how awesome it's going to be.


    I watched most of that video you posted and I have to say this seems like a really cool technology. Crysis on smartphones. Scared


    That 80ms thing can be improved with more datacenters and better Internet connections. The UI of their app is really really nice too.


    I really look forward to this being a reality.

  • New project: Should it be WPF or WinForms?

    It seems that NAudio only contains WinForms visualizers. Would you (or anyone else) be interested in collaboratng on a collection of WPF visualizers built on WPF?

    Less is more. Console.WriteLine FTW!

    I always have a console interface as well. Smiley Actually in one hobby project I am doing (a MUD, written in C#), the GUI actually calls the console interface with the parameters specified.
