Former Windows Mobile employee starts Apple-only dating site

Awhile back, we made a big deal about Microsoft employee Mel Sampat--after all, that cool Star Trek-esque calendar in Windows Phone 7 was his thing, he also did the MS coding train-race and was most recently tied to the updated Twiikin-for-WP7. He seemed hip, geeky cool and well, he was a face besides Loke Uei's that we could identify.

And now he broke our heart. Leaving Microsoft is one thing, but building a dating site dedicated only for Apple users and fans?  Gag us with our HD2's.

Yes, turns out Mel is quite the Apple fan even owning an iPad. (Wait, yours truly owns an iPad too, but that's different). Anyways, we'll begrudgingly wish Mel the best of luck with his dating site and hope he still has plans to bring some of his unquestionable talent back to the Windows Phone 7 side (we need all the help we can get).

  • Well isn't that a creative way of saying "I can't get laid". I certainly wasn't this creative.
  • this isn't all he's doing... He's starting a company that is going to develop apps with a heavy focus on WP7. This site is just one of the projects his company is working on.
  • Ok... I thought there are quite enough dating sites already but there's probably still room for a weird one like this. Looks like he's picking up a good member base, might be worth trying out!
