top CyanogenMod 10.2 M1 Released
Verizon and others would love you to upgrade your device so often. Usually if you want latest and greatest, that would be only way.
For example, device I bought in late 2011, came with Android 2.3 and had only one upgrade - to 4.0. Yet I'm still on the contract, and there were 4 Android releases.
Thanks to mods and CM, I got very stable version of Android 4.3, and I intend to keep my device for a while. Thanks to Verizon and HTC, I got not much for my money.
This is one area where Apple excels, their device commonly have up to 3 yrs of updates.

top Visual Studio vs. Eclipse: a Programmer's Comparison
Eclipse's gcc code parser integration is better than IntelliSense. It actually understand OO code. VS struggles badly with understanding OO code. for example, if every class re-implements one virtual function, VS cannot figure out usage of one particular implementation; even if there are object declared with that class.
Thus VS is good for debugging, for everything else in C++... not much so.
