As a result of a trade-in offer that promised to accept any working Android phone, I went rummaging around my Museum of Technology (a box in a cupboard). Underneath a Handspring Visor, a Diamond Rio 500, a Sony Clie, a Tapwave Zodiac, a Sony Ericsson T610, a Motorola Razr, and a Nokia N810 Internet Tablet I found my second “proper” smartphone. Uncharacteristically I’d passed on my first (a T-Mobile Pulse) rather than consigning it to the Museum; the second was an Orange San Francisco (a badged version of the ZTE Blade). The San Francisco is from 2010ish and has a 3.5″ screen, 512 MB of RAM, a 3 megapixel camera and runs Android 2.1, attributes that are (more or less) quadrupled in a current entry level handset, it’s pretty obvious to see the progress over the last ten years putting the two alongside each other. From another perspective, though, the basic functions have hardly changed. The San Francisco can still pick up e-mail, access the web, take … [Read more...] about The future’s so blurred I gotta wear reading glasses

ArenaNet's Mike Zadorojny has penned a new letter on the Guild Wars 2 site entitled "What's Next?" In it, Zadorojny reiterates the company's core philosophy that, according to the post, has not changed. The team believes that "the Living World of Guild Wars 2 is a great way" to accomplish each of the five pillars of the game. The staff that remains at the company after the layoffs earlier this year is being reorganized into "four fully staffed content teams with additional teams dedicated to supporting the core game like Skills and Balance, Rewards, WvW and sPvP". Each of these teams will have flexibility to make decisions that make the most sense to them for any given release. Moving forward, players can expect the Season 4 finale once the Super Adventure Festival is over. Episode 6 is nearly complete and an announcement of its release date should be coming soon. However, "it won't fall within the two-to-three month window....because of the adjustments we had to make in February, but … [Read more...] about Mike Zadorojny Pens ‘What’s Next for Guild Wars 2’ & Peeks Into the Future
Usually, when a gaming studio announces layoffs, it’s less about losing people and more about more PR-friendly terms like “reorganization” or “restructuring.” That’s typically all we hear about such things, as we’re left in the dark to wonder exactly how things have been reorganized and how having fewer people on board will better serve players. ArenaNet suffered layoffs in February, saying at the time that it was “part of a larger organizational restructuring within NCSoft in the West.” Guild Wars 2 Game Director Mike Zadorojny said that the changes would lead ArenaNet to “re-evaluate our schedules,” and — somewhat surprisingly — today he authored a follow-up post describing some of that restructuring and what it means for the future of the game. As Zadorojny laid it out, the GW2 team now consists of four content teams, with additional teams devoted to keeping track of overarching game elements, such as … [Read more...] about GW2 Game Director Details Reorganization, Dishes On Planned Future Features
Here we are again … the age old debate about the future of SEO that fascinates many newcomers and greenhorns in the field of Search Engine Optimization or Internet Marketing. It’s been half a decade, when I got in this profession, and I remember reading some “SEO is dead” articles and questioning my decision of opting it as a career. It took me quite some time to realize that these “SEO is doomed” type of articles were either an attempt at trolling the SEO professionals or a rant coming from a dejected webmaster whose website was hit by a Google penalty. Here’s why I think that the highly dynamic profession of Search Engine Optimization will be alive and kicking, even after a hundred tweaks and updates made by search engines. Why Future of SEO is more booming: Search Engine Optimization is becoming more and more complicated with each passing day.
