At eSoft Interactive, itâ??s more than just releasing games to the public. There are many different things we have to be concerned about. Recently we upgraded our computers to Intel-Based MacBooks, which we are very proud to own. Since BootCamp is available for free, this allows us to have Windows XP, working hand in hand with OSX on a solid and stable hardware. But thereâ??s a concern with technology that happens to be a big question to developers; and many technology enthusiasts. Whatâ??s happening on June 30th, 2008 is a big regard to many companies. Windows XP sales will be discontinued, the operating system will be phased out and Windows Vista will be on the forefront of many new computers. Free support will still be available until April of 2009, but extended support (which is not free) will be until 2014 only according to ZDNet. As developers, we have to stay up-to-date when it comes to software and hardware technology. We all know that new technology is not cheap and can be very expensive (coughâ?¦iPhone Generation 1â?¦) which is why our developments will be heavily affected by this and we will have to carefully assess how upgrading will impact our operations.

Here at eSoft, we love to see and read about the latest technology. The future is starting to become more interactive, and many people just want to look inside of it. We donâ??t know if we could be developing for multi-touch devices in the future (maybe Windows Mobile 7 will have this cool technology). We will have to wait and see what the future holds for us. What do you think what will happen to mobile devices in the future?
