I just thought of a neat project. Go out and gather up old board games, in the boxes. You will need a lot of games. It’s OK to have multiples. Next, stack them up to build a big chair with these boxes. You now have a throne of games.


Microsoft stuff:

Microsoft releases Windows Phone 8.1 developer preview

Microsoft releases Cortana-based MSDN Voice Search app for Windows Phone 8.1

Windows Phone App Studio 

Windows Phone 8.1 now available on Windows Phone Preview for Developers

Is Windows 8 development worth the trouble? (the answer, as always, is “it depends”)

Using Visual Studio to build Universal XAML Apps (Pick a language, any language…well, as long as it’s C#, C++ or JavaScript…)


Web development:

X-Tag – The Custom Elements Polylib (“X-Tag is a small JavaScript library, created and supported by Mozilla, that brings Web Components Custom Element capabilities to all modern browsers”)

Angular and Durandal Converge (Crunch!)

Write Better JavaScript with Promises (I only promise you’ll do as well as you can, and no better)

Alternatives to Prefixr (Postfixr?)


Other stuff:

Developers Need to Broaden Their Range (Just don’t blow your stack in the process)

Too big to trust? Google’s growing credibility gap Uncredible!)

Sloppy but secure: Open source TrueCrypt passes audit (That cryptkeeper is so darn funny…oh, wait…nevermind…)

Google may boost search rank of sites with encryption, report claims (Hmmm…those who control secrecy rise to the top?)

Bend It, Charge It, Dunk It: Graphene, the Material of Tomorrow (Don’t dismiss this too quickly. Be flexible.)
