Back in Time #29 – Mailworm Mydoom, Overwatch foundation and CoD release cycle


Dozens of news items appear on Tweakers every day, but when we write we rarely know how the products, techniques and developments we discuss will end. In this section we read old messages and see what happened next.

For this 29th edition of Back in Time we look back at articles from February 2004, 2009 and 2014. This is how the mailworm Mydoom and the demise of Napster, we look at the impressive careers of Blizzard's Jeff Kaplan and Satya Nadella at Microsoft, and we reflect on the new release strategy of Call of Duty that was initiated in 2014.
