A few months ago Nokia ( via Robert Jeschonnek ) was kind enough to give a test device Nokia Lumia 800. The condition was to develop a Windows Phone 7 app for this device and make it public until a certain date.
So here I am: Romanian weather for Windows Phone 7 informs you about weather changes in Romania based on data provided by Wunderground and Google Weather Api.
This new version for Winodws Phone 7 is is based on the Android and Playbook app we released a few years ago and is just a proof of concept. The code will be in the next days made open source on Github.
WebClient webclient = new WebClient();
webclient.DownloadStringCompleted += new DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler(webclient_DownloadStringCompleted);
XElement XmlWeather = XElement.Parse(e.Result);
foreach (var item in XmlWeather.Descendants("forecast_conditions"))
WeatherBean xmlGoogleWeather = new WeatherBean();
xmlGoogleWeather.high = (string)item.Element("high").Attribute("data").Value + "\u00b0C";
xmlGoogleWeather.low = (string)item.Element("low").Attribute("data").Value + "\u00b0C";
xmlGoogleWeather.condition = (string)item.Element("condition").Attribute("data").Value;
//reformat the icon to use the local icon in png format
string imagePath = (string)item.Element("icon").Attribute("data").Value;
imagePath = imagePath.Replace("/ig/images/weather/", "images/");
imagePath = imagePath.Replace(".gif", ".png");
xmlGoogleWeather.icon = imagePath;
//reformat the day of the week
string dayWeek = (string)item.Element("day_of_week").Attribute("data").Value;
//add the element in the list
A few weeks ago Marius finished the porting of the Romanian weather to Adobe Actionscript, today the Playbook version online in the BlackBerry AppWorld.
Romanian Weather (Vremea in Romania) informs you about weather changes in Romania. It allows you to have on your Playbook the actual weather for 41 locations in Romania and the detailed weather forecast for the next 5 days. Romanian weather offers you also the possibility to check live images from Romanian webcams.

Mit dem ID Disk Protector lassen sich einzelne Laufwerke mit wenigen Klicks vor allzu neugierigen Blicken schützen. So haben Unbefugte keine Chance, an Ihre sensibilen Daten zu gelangen, und selbst wenn Ihr Notebook gestohlen werden sollte, hat der Dieb schlechte Aussichten.

An year ago we launched the Free Software Downloads website – DownBroad.com , a software repository with over 20.000 applications titles for Windows, Unix, Mac and PDA-s. The games section of the DownBroad is slowly developing but we observed the shift in playing the games online rather then install a 200Mb on the desktop.
The solution to this is the new brother GameBroad – home of 6000 arcade games. Packet with 12 categories: Action, Adventure, Ball, Board, Card, Casino, Classic, Puzzle, Racing, Shooting, Sports the games located on GameBroad are online playable flash games. The website will be weekly actualize with new games. Which is my favorite? For the moment: Racing games.
At the same time we have ported the English version of the GameBroad to a localized romanian version: Jocuri gratis – JocuPedia. The romanian version is still in migration phase, only part of the 6000 archive games are now ported on JocuPedia.

I was shocked today. I asked tribal Fusion for an account to start promoting some of the products. I was thinking at a test account with 300$. What was the answer, read bellow:
Tribal Fusion answer: “Thank you for your reply and everything looks good except the answer to the budgeting question. Unfortunately, $300 is not sufficient enough to test your product through our network.
The minimum of $10,000 for targeted buys and $15,000 for run of network buys are in place to allow the ad server to effectively optimize by gathering enough statistically relevant data to dynamically reallocate impressions to the best performing sites and avoid untargeted placements, thus providing the highest ROI. Anything less than $10k means that we cannot do an effective job of promoting your product.
