WP7 with copy/paste in new dev update

wp7main1

One of the shortcomings of Windows Phone 7 is apparently drawing nearer – a recent update that’s been showing up on developer Windows phones includes copy and paste as a headline feature. Microsoft has always promised that it was coming but now we are getting closer to that semi-confirmed “early 2011” timeframe.

It seems to work as you’d expect it to, with a similar method to Android and iOS (how different can it be?) See a short video of it after the break.

O2 launches hunt for the world’s favourite Angry Bird

Angry_Birds_Poster_Image

O2 today launches the biggest bird search since Tweety and Sylvester to discover just which Angry Bird is closest to the country’s heart.

The vote, being run via text, Twitter, Facebook and the O2 Blog, will determine one of the biggest questions of our time: does the yellow bird’s turbo boost outweigh the blue bird’s ability to split, or are the pigs in the right after all?
Voters can choose between the red, yellow, green, blue, black and white birds as well as the pigs. To have their say, voters can use any of the following voting methods:

  • Twitter: to tweet their choice, voters should write a tweet with their vote and include the hashtag #angrybirdso2. Tweets without this hashtag will not be counted
  • Facebook: Facebookers can vote by visiting www.facebook.com/o2uk and hitting Like on the picture of their bird
  • O2 Blog: to vote on the O2 Blog, voters need to visit the O2 Blog and add a comment with their favourite bird
  • Text: To vote by text, send a message to 60600 with the word ANGRY followed by RED, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, BLACK, WHITE or PIG. Votes cast by text will cost the standard network rate and can only be sent in the UK.

There are also Twibbons available for voters to show their support – to download them, head to the O2 Blog.

The search, being run to coincide with O2 selling Red Bird, Yellow Bird and Green Pig Gear4 Angry Birds cases for iPhone 4 in store and at www.o2.co.uk/angrybirds, finishes at lunchtime on Friday 10 December. The results will then be announced in time for worldwide Angry Birds Day on Saturday 11 December with one lucky voter for red bird, yellow bird and pig each winning a case featuring the character they voted for.

BlackBerry PlayBook demoed in more detail

BlackBerry-PlayBook With nearly every gadget manufacturer wanting to out a tablet of their own, RIM and their PlayBook is one that seems to be grabbing the headlines, and rightly so. At a Rogers demo, David Neale showed off a demo of a PlayBook with a newer OS build, which was capable of showing the operating system’s multitasking system, though on only one of the two cores of its processor. The interface is very webOS-like with swiping gestures used to manage running apps. Another tasty treat was a full HD 1080p video clip playing very smoothly – it seems like one of the most promising tablets for the future!
