- I got bored of Mafia Wars because, all though my level goes up each time I play and I earn money and properties bla bla ., at any level I would be doing the same old stuff. May be its my character but I expect some new stuff .. I need variety !
- Website hangs very often :( and does not respond to my speed ;-)
- Some new features introduced have spoiled the usability badly !!
- There are other applications which look cooler comparatively !
Now, compared to above points, If I think of developerWorks, I just can't say I know dW completely. As Frances blogs in one his entry we have got n number of things to explore in dW. Downloads to free trials, articles to blogs, forums to activities and much more. I know I can't even think of finishing reading or using these resources in my life time. So it satisfies my "variety" need.
Did I miss out to list the new student portal above? Its a one stop shop for students, believe me! I was amazed to see the kind of stuff which are offered to the student community. I wish we had all these when we were students [Not that I am not a student now.. in the sense I will be learning something through out :)] !!
I remember my college days, we never had internet connection in our lab, nor any high end computers ! We had a common lab and systems with UNIX and we used to get satisfied with Pine to send and receive emails ! Ah those were the days ! and now I see most of them having access to internet (Not that I envy it .. at times I do .. Shhhh) and surfing through things.. of course some good and some bad ;-). But my point is one does have an option to get to such resources.. So better make good use of it
