Super Smooth NES-Emulator for Windows Phone 7
If you have a Windows phone 7 and played Nintendo when younger, this may be of your liking. XDA member fiinix presents this super smooth NES emulator, for those not familiar with the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) emulator, it is a rather neat invention that lets you play games from a particular gaming console without actually having to have the system itself.
This version is on it´s early stages, but according to the developer it promises to be faster than other versions. It has some limitations such as no sound, only one game (Super Mario Bros 3) and no save options.
Please leave feedback.

[NES / XNA] Super smooth NES-Emulator
After surfing at XDA i saw this thread about NES emulator found (here) and tried it out, but soon discovered it fps’ed slow, so i created another clone of from another engine “SharpNES”.
The SharpNES actualy runs faster without fps hack i did (2 CPU update, 1 CPU Draw) and gain enormous speed.
No sound (like the other one that i know of)
Only one game (Super Mario Bros 3)…
XNA is hard to make a GUI as advanced as Silverlight so no game-change or save
Well i hope you like it
__ Zip in attatch -> rename as “.xap” and deploy
*edit – added source (forgot)
Continue to the application thread.

Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
