Windows Phone 7:Thoughts

Image
Ahh the windows phone 7 has been announced and it looks promising:

Runs on nvidia's tegra 2 platform, witch means a rich media experince--->Games will run much smoother and better then other mobile platforms (not including the PSP and NDS) Movies will be watched in ultra smooth HD with no problems.

has social networking intergration

has xbox live intergration as well as zune intergration



However I think that the interface does need a little work and it could be possibly the best USA launched mobile device.

I would actually like an interface on this phone to have the following criteria to make it worthwhile:


1) Crisp, clear graphics that can be read from a ways away->this is very important if the device will be used as a GPS mounted on the dashboard of a vehicle, the driver must be able to see it from the driver's seat very easily.

2)customizable look and feel->this is extremely important, becuase each user wants something different. This also makes the experienced op…

Report says Sillicon Valley economy is sputtering:PT2:case study

As for relocating, we need to kep the jobs in the US.

I support relocating to cheaper areas.

Disclaimer: I am in no way biased towards any company I feature on this site.


Case study: GPS companies: Garmin VS magellan navigation:

Garmin is the most successful GPS manufacturer out there. They have very good routing engines and have been enjoying HUGE successes in the GPS sector, They have expanded product lines and even have sponsoship with events. This company is growing and very stable and has increased thier marketshare in the GPS sector by 6% this year.

magellan navigation on the other hand has passed hands 4 times and thier marketshare has dropped by 5-10% this year in the GPS sector. They have also dropped one product line and slimmed down the other. They have also dropped support for explorist label products for driving directions and made such units topo only. This company has confusing product ranges and inconsistancies.

One company is located in Olathe KS

The other is locate…

Report says Sillicon Valley economy is sputtering

I think the main reason is that the area is getting more and more expensive. People don't want to move there because a 2BR condo is around 400-700k and the taxes are in the double digit k's. Also the expense in commuting is getting worse and worse.




I think that if hardware companies and software companies wish to stay afloat and do good, I suggest they relocate to a much cheaper area, or they are going to continue to get burned.



Another positive they can get from relocating is it will create jobs in a new area and boost another area up. However, the area that the companies do move to will need to plan the upsurge-economy very well so they do not suffer the same fate as the bay area.



Also since the bay area is so expensive and exclusive to rich people it is deterring many young and fresh minded people from moving there, thus the amount of fre…

new year new content!

Sorry I haven't posted much. I just got a new house and I've been sooo busy with it.

I am a little drained but ben feeling good. Some cool stuff is gonna happen soon and I am glad.

I cannot tell you as its a suprise. LOL.

what is currently irking me is the amount of immaturity on the internet. Including trolls on yes, a server forum. This makes me laugh becuase some people do not have a life at all. At least in my emotional downtimes I go and do things with my life instead of trolling a forum. But they don't deserve your attention. Just ignore them.

In other words I am working on the modelling for the new game and should have a couple new vids shortly up. :-) I've been getting faster with wings 3d.
