Magic Mirror on the Wall is our 2015 New Website the Fairest of Them All?

The year was 2012. It was the last time our website was redesigned. It was a time when it was believed that Adobe Flash would survive, it was the death of the fold and typography was really started to explode in the world of web design. It was a time when the most searched company stock was Facebook, the most searched song lyrics was Gangnam Style, Katniss Everdeen was the most popular Halloween costume, the Michael Phelps diet was trending, and the endangered species that Americans were concerned about most was the Braken Bat Cave meshweaver. Diablo 3 was one of the top trending video games, basketball player Jeremy Lin caught the attention of Americans and out of all searches in 2012 Whitney Houston was at the top. ‘How to love’ was the most searched…

Epic Marketing Rock Stars We Hear You

Every once in a while you have a blog topic bouncing around in your head, but you lack the inspiration to start it. Well I got it, on Sunday, when I was at the mall with my 2 kids enjoying a beautiful morning full of ice lattes, lemon bread and the Fall's latest fashions.My phone dings. It's Twitter. Someone mentioned me. On CodeWeavers corporate account. The Tweet asked who our target market was, and opined that if it was Apple then we should really work on our newsletter layout. With #servicetweet. Instantly, my blood pressures skyrockets. Did I royally screw up something? Did I put a Linux box on a Mac promotion? Quickly I pull up the 'newsletter,' which is actually an email promotion we're running. You know: to-may-to, to-mah-to. But after a quick…

Nothing.CrossOver Mac and CrossOver Linux will not be making an appearance at the Game Developers Conference this year. I repeat CrossOver Mac and CrossOver Linux will not be making an appearance at the Game Developers Conference this year. Then what on earth is CodeWeavers going…

The Top 3 Reasons We Let Kids of CodeWeavers Play Wizard101

A few of us at the CodeWeavers Ranch have been playing…er…testing… Wizard101 since 2011. Since the beginning of our"testing" of Wizard101, an exclusive group (those of us with kids) has happily introduced our children to the game. So when I was asked to write a blog post about our upcoming promotion with Wizard101, it was only natural forme to write about why us parents love Wizard101. 1.) Reading, Math, and Creativity - Oh My!Wizard101 is not a game that was designed specifically to teach math or reading skills, but a side effect of the game is its educational value. With over 50,000 lines of text in Wizard101, players are constantly exercising their reading skills to complete quests. While technically not a math game either, math and…
