I wanted to try out iOS development on XCode 4 but I don’t own a Mac. I am a hardcore PC user and there is a way to run Mac OS X Snow Leopard on PCs so I tried it out. Mac OS X 10.6.2 worked fine after following full detailed tutorials around the internet (RedmondPie and LifeHacker have really good ones) but I needed Mac OS X 10.6.6 because it has the App Store and support for XCode 4. There is a combo update available on the official Apple site (and in software update inside Snow Leopard) that allows to update Mac OS X 10.6.2 from Mac OS X 10.6.6 so I updated but the Mac never booted again.
After few hours of tryout, I was able to run Mac OSX 10.6.6 in VMWare on Windows 7 with fully working App Store and XCode 4. Here is the step by step tutorial to install Mac OS X 10.6.6 in VMWare on Windows 7.

In a recent Microsoft and Nokia’s joint press conference, it was announced that the future Nokia devices will be Windows Phone 7 devices and Symbian will be left out.
I was a huge fan of Nokia until Symbian started to suck and awesomeness of iOS and Android emerged. And then there is Windows Phone 7, a new player in market that has a great potential and I simply love it. Now with Windows Phone 7 as a primary operating system on Nokia devices, Nokia seems to be returning back to the awesomeness required for the modern mobile devices.
Starting November 26, there is this awesome deal of getting a free Windows Phone 7 device one the purchase of a Windows Phone 7 device. This offer is on HTC HD7 from T-Mobile and LG Quantum, HTC Surround & Samsung Focus from AT&T.
The catch is that you need to get the 2-year wireless service agreement on voice and minimum $15/mo data plan per phone.
