PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "BlackBerry offered few signs of a long-promised turnaround on Friday, with an unexpected quarterly operating loss, a dearth of details on sales of its make-or-break new line of devices and no return to profit expected in the current quarter. BlackBerry shares tumbled about 28 percent in both U.S. and Toronto trading." 'Unexpected'? Really?

I agree as a whole for Visual Studio. The downside of these fast paced yearly updates is just how much Visual Studio costs, and the startling realization that VS doesn't offer upgrade pricing.

I think the solution to this is simple and I'm surprised there's not much movement in this area: We need Visual Studio 365.

Give me a subscription based (and cloud enabled) Visual Studio IDE. That way I can keep up with the fast pace of innovation in a financially sensible manner, Microsoft gets recurring income, and it moves them closer to their Device&Services goal.

I did think the VS2013 stuff was mindblowing though, specifically for XAML devs.
