Sometimes you need to have a bit luck to achieve a success. We can speak about such luck in case of Sphero. A company that is known from production of small robot toys that you are able to control by mobile phone. But before September 8th 2015 probably only technology geeks knew this company. And it was also hard to say that this company achieved success – they managed to sold about 500 000 robots in 4 years. Such kind of luck for Sphero was new episode of Star Wars. In new episode a new robot BB-8 has been introduced. And [...]

Yesterday, Microsoft announced a new version of Windows Phone. Those of you, who expected revolutionary information, may feel slightly disappointed. Microsoft has confirmed only all information that has been already published on the Internet as rumours.

I think that everyone who develop and share its software do this to achieve profits in long term. For one person satisfaction can be a profit. Somebody else wants to earn some money. In the case of Windows Phone developer can earn money by selling its application or publish ads. Both ways are extremely simple to implement. The only one problem is to find great number of people who will use our application.
