I have only used Blend for XAML design, but it's leaps and bound better than the editor built in to visual studio. However, when using it I always question why VS couldn't also have these features. I think this is a good move for MS because: 1.) As a developer also creating the UI I would have to switch between application to do code and UI work. 2) Any shop that is would have a need for Blend probably already has Visual Studio.

The problem here is that the Xbox 360 and the Wii U are not within the same generation of consoles. The Wii U will likely end up being more like the Sega Dreamcast compared to the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube when Sony and Microsoft release their next consoles. That is technology wise, not saying that the Nintendo and the Wii U will suffer the same way that Sega and the Dreamcast did.

This kind of rationale is why its a bad idea to say this is just natural primeval human behavior at work on the Internet. Totally benign. There should be a standard for privacy that is fought for. Instead we get some dipshit academic child-woman logic seemingly advocating the continued evisceration of rights to privacy. And fu weasel bs mod moron.

Isn't the concept of privacy lost when you put that information online? To me it's the same as announcing something in a news paper and then hoping no one you knows sees it. If there is something about you that can be easily googled then it's not private and in this day and age you shouldn't consider it to be.


Android Fork Brings Froyo To 12 Smartphones 193

jj110888 writes "CyanogenMod has just been updated to version 6.0, bringing Android Open Source Project 2.2 (Froyo) to several devices. This fork includes enchantments to many of the built-in apps, Ad-hoc network connectivity, OpenVPN support, Bluetooth HID, Incognito browsing, extensive control over audio and UI elements, and more found in the extensive CHANGELOG. The CyanogenMod team uses an instance of Google's gerrit tool for code review and patch submission, helping make this former backport of Android 1.6 to T-Mobile's G1 into thriving development for the G1/MyTouch/MyTouch 1.2, Droid, Nexus One, HTC Aria, HTC Desire, HTC Evo 4G (minus 4G and HDMI output), Droid Incredible, and MyTouch Slide. HTC Hero (including Droid Eris) are coming soon for 6.0, with Samsung Galaxy S devices expected to be supported in 6.1."

I don't think anyone's fingers are slim enough to click on a link that's only a few pixels big since the screens are so small anyhow. These screens are small and made to be finger friendly, that type of accuracy is not needed I don't think. For larger screen that are meant to be used instead of mice then that's a different story.
