    Bye-bye Evil Empire?

    • 12 Comments

    Kind of scattered today... I love this news . Sure, it's the “other guys,” but as a music lover I love to see a company find a way to take advantage of technology to distribute art, rather than running around trying to hang on to dated...

    One of the coolest new features in v2 is the ability to diagnose problems through the new logging infrastructure. With the new Windows Mobile 5.0 security model, loader problems can be hard to find and figure out. If you have an app that just won't start...
