Birthday Cake For That Lucky One

It’s that time of the year again, when you are home alone for your birthday. Well, do not worry because your Windows Phone has prepared a cake for you to blow out the candles when the time comes, because that is just how much it loves you and how much you should love it. To make it work, you simply need to blow into your device’s microphone and the candles go out when you apply enough air.

Inspired by the Wuvuzela app (and possibly by the announcement of Portal 2 at E3), I’ve developed a simple little application that allows you to blow into your phone’s microphone to blow out candles on a cake.
It’s very simple, and I’m no artist, but hopefully this can inspire some other ideas for this kind of application. Also, if anyone wants to make me an animated cake, let me know
Tested and working on my HTC HD2, but should work on other devices as well.
Let me know what you think/if you have any problems.

If you want something for your next birthday, try this new cake.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
