After releasing FlightPredictor for WP7 earlier this week, it's gotten some nice reviews!
All About Windows Phone reviewed it on Wednesday, and today I woke up to find a wpcentral review of it, including a video review where George Ponder had lots of nice things to say about it. Hooray!
If I had two wishes (and they had to be FlightPredictor-related), they would be:
- getting some good reviews on the Marketplace. Right now it doesn't have any ratings, and I'm always super anxious to get one good one. I think this is a big reason that FlightPredictor for Android is doing reasonably well - it now has 7 5-star ratings!
- getting chosen for the [Your App Here] advertising campaign with Nokia & Microsoft. Because the app is US-only, I think I have even longer odds of this than I would normally; but the Lumia 900 is supposed to be coming out next month and it sounds like Nokia will be promoting it extensively, so who knows?

- New Hampshire voted down an attempt to repeal same-sex marriage by a convincing margin of 211-116 - and it needed to pass by a 2/3 majority since the governor (a Democrat) had said he would veto it. More than 100 Republicans voted against the repeal!
Unfortunately, there are a bunch more states that are considering repeal - give to the Win More States fund to defend same-sex marriage!
- The Odd Link Between Commute Direction and Marital Satisfaction - bizarre, but I can kind of understand - anything can help you make a connection with someone!
- Ben Bernanke is going around to college campuses...and one of the things he talks about is why going back to the gold standard is a bad, bad idea.
