Unless something radical's changed in the few weeks since I unfriended Facebook, they should start by making an app for existing smartphones that doesn't suck balls. Just my 2p.
Re: Microsoft to devs: Don't ruin Win 8....
[guffaw] Coming from Microsoft is is hilarious.
That's true, though having Amazon as your main competitor would knock any company's valuation.
The generation gap is an interesting one. Most people I tend to text use proper English - punctuation even. But after my niece taught my mum to text, so it took many years of moaning before she finally stopped using Teenage Gibberish (aka txtSpkLOL or whatever it's called).
A happy side effect is that having to use Proper English she sends me fewer texts.
Re: But what's it for?
... and I don't understand how all those buns and kittens add up to $1.5bn before anyone asks
Re: But what's it for?
Pictures of cakes and kittens as far as I can tell.
Good weight and the hapless fools can console themselves with chips. Or a nice soup.

Of course you are correct. Mea cupla.
May I offer you a 227.2 nanoPool of Blighty's Finest?
I won't be happy til I'm ordering a nice 0.3317 of a Bulgarian Aribag of beer.

Surely no one would be so stupid to pay so much for this MySpace in the making.
"it's just not a route-planning app" - just another load of tat with the word "Olympics" on it, then.

"Draw it using pen and paper or Microsoft Paint?"

A whole Blackberry article without a single mention of RIM job? Much more of this and I'll be forced to cancel my subscription.
"Landing an SUV-sized vehicle next to the side of a mountain 85 million miles from home is always stimulating."
Lovely understatement, Mr Boffin, sir.
Re: Poor Game and Gamestation AGAIN
I imagine they won't be a factor by the time the next gen consoles appear :o\
The OP contrasted science and religion quite accurately IMO.
Re: Better reception?
Is that why I lost a shedload of channels when they switched off analogue round here?
I've little time to watch TV so it's not much of a problem though the lack of BBC4's a pain.
Re: Engraved handle on a kitchen knife...
That knife is one of the two things on that list I'd consider making space for and I've no illusions about being a "proper" chef (let alone Heston, whose food is pretentious beyond belief IMO).
The other's the pasta maker.
