Where is this shortage or programmers problem coming from? Last I check there are lots and lots of them. If they are looking for good programmers, they wont solve it by offering one course...
could a really smart ant model the entire earth?
I'm always amused by posts like this. You're bitching at MS because they are not #1, yet if there were #1 you would be bitching at them too!
Someone is willing to pay me 16$ to install firefox, why would the firefox terms and conditions apply to me? I'm not selling their product.
All I see there is calling some method to do something complicated. It's not 2 lines of code of the actual meat is hidden somewhere.
Only Madagascar can shut down everything
To really understand metro, you have to watch the development videos at microsoft virtual academy website.
Somehow their UI designers came up with this ridicilous notion that your apps don't need any "distract" menus or system icons and it should only display content. Content is the king they say, none of those resizing bars or window icons or anything. This is the main reason why metro apps look like that.
It's like someone designed a car and said.. "you don't doors once you're in the car all you need is the road". To that I say "getting in and out a car shouldn't be an un-intuitive mess dumbass"
I thought Nokia sold its devices division to Microsoft. Also they already have their low end Asha platform

Since nobody wants to part with their bitcoin, he will be funding his campaign with fiat currency while reaping the benefits of being to the first to accept bitcoin. It's a win win
The summary is incorrect. Low end windows phone are far more competitive with Android on the low end spectrum that high end. If anything, they would be making competing high end Android phones (which again seems completely unlikely).
If you operate a vehicle in an unsafe way (including speeding) then it's your own damn fault. If you want Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson is a master of exaggeration. He called the 19'inch wheels on a mercedes AMG "the size of neptune".
I ended up using something similar. I just have a bunch of memorized passwords using a very simple 3 keyed format
like "AB#" "EF#" "I#K"
This way whenever I need a new password to add to my list I write anything that pops into my head on a note. for example..
J92bd3Yp4. "J92" "bd3" "Yp4". write it down, use it for a week until it's memorized and it's done. I have about 6 passwords in this format completely memorized and cycle them everywhere.
