Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

this morning was the Worldwide Developer Conference 2008, where steve jobs made a highly anticipated speech regarding the next-gen iphones

there's all kinds of neat developments -- you can see a good blog updated in real time here

among 3g support, GPS, and demos for neat new apps and games available from the release of the SDK earlier this year, the most important point that everyone was waiting for was when and how much the iphones would be

they will be released july 11th

and

    by reducing the price and making it more accessible to the plebes, doesn't that inherently make it less hip?

    He just reached his goal of 20 million iPhones sold with that new price.

    I seldom use the word incredible to describe Apple schemes for marketing and products, but this might just have to be genius...

    iPhone, iPhone, blah blah blah. iTunes has been around for how long, and still can't stream Vorbis.

    People still complain about Starbucks being hip. "Hip" doesn't actually have anything to do with the product, it's just a word people use to criticize when they can't think of anything better -- like "smug".

    so I was asking about this in another thread but this one seems more apt

    can mac computers play games pretty well. I know you can run windows on them now so compatibility isn't really a problem. I don't play that many different games at once so space wouldn't really be an issue either. games are pretty much the only thing that is preventing me from getting some sort of mac computer.

    and please this is not a mac vs pc thing, I know what a pc is like and am now enquiring about macs

    do not ask for whom the snerd tolls

    Okay, I'm crossposting this.

    See, my think with iPhones is like this.

    I fuckin' use my phones. I don't need to have something extremely pretty jangling around in my pocket with my change. I could see myself buying an iPod Touch and keeping it in a case, but my phone? I dunno.

    The Chocolate I bought last year is all fuckin scratched to hell. Seems like it'd be a shame to do that to an iPhone.

    You can get the wow client for mac and you can emulate windows. I use Parallels, other people use Boot Camp, I've heard of others using VMWare.
