I have been working late, getting up early and working through weekends... But I have enjoyed the heck out of every minute of it and now I have an extra month and a half more to fill with more of the same Smiley Happy

I'm guessing that they are going to GA the Playbook on the 15th or 16th then.  They've always said that it would be in 1Q and that gives them 2 weeks under the line.  So much for them doing the big splash with the Black Eyed Peas on SuperBowl 2011 (Feb 6th).  Oh well, better stable than sending out something not quite ready for prime time.  The press won't give them any passes on even minor glitches - especially with the Apple iPad2 coming out within days of this thing.

Best regards,

Brent

Haha, I still haven't told mine of the change Smiley Happy  In fact, she just went to bed and I thought I would grab a few more hours of development.  First, however, I must pop over here to get caught up on the posts I have missed...  I really haven't had a chance to read up on the new SDK changes, though I saw the links in another post and will go check that out now.
