Relive Old Times with NES Emulator for WP7

If you are into emulators and old games, or if you are simply nostalgic and have a soft spot for 8 bit graphics, XDA member Tuska has posted a new NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) for the new and coming Windows Phone 7 platform. The emulator is in its initial stages but according to the dev, it should work with most roms. According to some reports by several members, the emulator works but rather slowly, so more than likely there is still work to be done. Yet, it should be fun to play with if you want to see how the original Contra looked like :).

Now, keep in mind that you must own the original game in order to have a rom (game), which translates into please don’t ask for roms in this forum as this is against forum rules. Any and all feedback is appreciated in order to make this app better.

I was planning to wait till I get actual device to try it but I still haven’t got one so what the hell, here is the nintendo emulator for windows phone 7.
No point trying to send it to the marketplace since other fellow coder tried it with no success (and poor emulator, sharpnes)

You can find more information in the emulator thread.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
