…legacy Cloud to Device Messaging, and Microsoft's legacy Windows Phone Notification Service. Email is distributed via Sendgrid.

Everything in the current Glassboard architecture is housed in a single Visual Studio solution with about 36 C# projects in it. It's a lot of code to manage. Luckily it's also well tested, which makes it easier to manage.

…changed the game here, only proven it can play; Windows Phone 8.1 will make a lot of Windows Phone 8 users very happy but won't make anyone at Google or Apple sweat.

In his review for Engadget, Brad Molen says with 8.1, Windows Phone feels complete for the first time . "There are no more gaping holes in its features or functionality; I can now use Windows Phone without feeling like I'm giving up something I'd otherwise enjoy on an iPhone or Android

…Galaxy brand, and work closely with the carriers. It's far less muddled than any set of goals for Windows Phone that I saw during my time as a Windows Phone Champ at Microsoft. To paraphrase web design guru Jeffrey Zeldman:

"...provide value added solutions" is not a mission statement. "Destroy All Monsters." That is a fucking mission statement.

…launch and instead focused on how they could go from a Windows computer on every desk to a Windows Phone in every pocket.

Windows Phone is still a key piece of technology for them (and 8.1 looks great), but they realize that integrating their services into the other platforms as first-class citizens is best for business .

Whether this was a plan set in place by Ballmer before he left, or new under new CEO Satya Nadella's watch I don't know. As an outside just starting …

If you're feeling generous, we should technically include Windows 8 and Windows Phone in here too. All with different screen dimensions, development stacks, UI guidelines, and usage patterns. Oh and by the way, that's assuming no other players emerge as serious contenders in the computing device market. Ever.

At the point where you find yourself praying for a duopoly as one of the better possible outcomes, that's ... not a good sign.

…median revenues between $ 100 and $ 200 per app per month, and again, Windows Phone and Windows 8 trail behind with median revenues between $ 1 and $ 50 per app per month.

Additionally, 54 percent of iOS developers are reported to be making a viable income from their apps, while only 38 percent of Android developers have reached the same benchmark.

Mislav and I just released Zepto 1.1 , which brings updates across the board. Even if you don't need to new features, upgrading is worth it for "free" IE 10 support (which makes mobile sites work great on Windows Phone 8) as well as the huge performance speedups for common operations ( benchmarks ).

Notable changes

IE10+ support

Huge speed optimizations for simple CSS selectors (classname, ID) and DOM element creation

Provide $.Callbacks and $. Deferred in optional modules
