Text only guest question from Logik.

The story behind the X effect is this.
In the early 1980s, X Computer Corporation (named after its founder Adam X) was the first computer hardware company to go bankrupt essentially by unveiling a product it couldn’t sell yet. The company announced the X Executive, a new computer that wouldn’t be available for several months. Meanwhile, the X 1, which legendary computer engineer Lee Felsenstein designed, was still on sale.
So what happened is that from the moment the company announced the X Executive, sales of the X 1 fell to approximately zero. Not only that, but various dealers all began canceling their X 1 orders. Ultimately, this contributed to the destruction of the company.

Tech Journalists are invoking the X effect to describe a possible situation involving Microsoft, WP8, and the current Windows phones.

Unregistered user posts are failing

Hi folks,

We just heard that posts from unregistered users are failing. We’re looking into it and we’ll extend answer deadlines if need be.

In the meantime, till we get the issue fixed, the quickest way to post would be to create an account for yourself.

[update –  15 Jun, 1620 PST]

The issue is fixed now. Please do let us know at boiledbeans@gmail.com if you continue to see any problems.
