Since Ed Zander led Sun into the valley of the shadow of death back, what? over five years ago now, it has never recovered. And there's a good chance the same thing may happen to Motorola. With a year left to run on his contract, Zander quit yesterday and clearly not a moment too soon ...
VS 2008 can also be used to build AJAX-based web apps. It can be used to target multiple versions of software like existing .NET 2.0 and ASP.NET 2.0 programs and continue to deploy them on .NET 2.0 machines. .NET Framework 3.5 supports Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), Windows Wor...

According to Microsoft's Mac Mojo blog this week, Office 2008 when released will allow PowerPoint presentations to be converted into photos, which in turn can then be transferred to an iPod through Apple's iTunes software. Microsoft plans to ship the Mac version of its new Office produ...
My money is on targeting iPhones and WM devices until Android actually shows up live and in the wild on more than 500,000 devices. Also, don't be fooled about the Android developer challenge. That's not $10million in prize money, that's a $10 million bribe in order to obtain the critic...
iPhone Developer Summit (www.iphonedevsummit.com) announced today Kevin Hoffman as the Tech Chair of the Conference. The letter from the Tech Chair at the conference Website contained the following message: What's the impact of the iPhone going to be on the delivery of rich conten...
There's a couple of things that I like about his sample, and a couple of things that worry me. First, I like the idea that there's an Ajax controller. I hope in the final bits it's simply called Controller and they don't make you distinguish between an Ajax controller and a regular con...
Scott Bourne announced the top ten accessories that will make every iPhone owner happy this Holiday. With 1.4 million iPhones out there in the wild, chances are you know someone who owns an iPhone. If that someone is on your holiday gift list, look at this compilation of great gift id...

Keynote Competitive Research announced Europe's first performance index for the mobile Web. The Keynote Europe Mobile Index is a weekly performance ranking of 10 popular European mobile sites compiled from more than 26,000 measurements taken on multiple carriers from different geograph...
Looks like Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz should have waited for his boys to give Google's Android spec the once over before endorsing the thing last week expecting Java to get a 'massive endorsement' out of it. Oh, Java gets a 'massive endorsement' all right; it's just not standard off-th...
Google, as promised, put the Android SDK out in early access - along with a $10 million pot for the best apps written for its open Android mobile platform by third-party developers. It said the platform would be open and it's going about proving it. It also needs the buzz - and a kill...
After Google's Android announcement, at least four big guys should be irritated: Sun Microsystems, Apple, Adobe and Microsoft.Google approaches telephony from the open source side - Linux-based platform, uses Java but does not care about sticking to Java ME - they are planning to use f...
VMware has announced VMware Fusion 1.1, a new update to its VMware Fusion desktop virtualization software for Intel-based Macs. VMware Fusion allows Mac users to run Mac OS X, Windows and other PC-based applications on the same Mac. VMware Fusion 1.1 is a free update that is immediatel...
That leaves Java developers in a bad position. Java developers love the clean Unix-based Mac OS X environment for development. But we have been suffering with an unstable developer-only dont-run-this-in-production release of Java 6 for the past year. Mac OS X is now the getto for Java ...
I want to counter a lot of the press and blog comments stating that the release of the SDK is a reversal or some kind of about face. If anybody had done their homework, they would know that Steve Jobs himself stated that he wanted to create an environment that supported native 3rd part...
Sun's Terrence Barr, technical evangelist for the Java mobile and embedded community, believes Apple's plans to release an SDK for iPhone in early 2008 may result in the open-source phoneME version of Java ME winding up on iPhone.

So I went to go re-watch Scott Guthrie's video illustrating the new upcoming MVC (Model-View-Controller) framework for ASP.NET when I noticed that the content is in Silverlight. That's fine, MS is trying so hard to push Silverlight as the answer to the world's problems that it's probab...
This session will explore how to leverage the speed and stability of OS X and the workhorse productivity of Windows in an enterprise production environment, and how to bring both to your team via virtualization. Topics of discussion include: 1) Level of integration between Windows and ...
MIR3 has announced the availability of an enterprise notification and command interface for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch (dubbed 'iTouch' by the media) mobile communications platform. These full-featured Web-based management applications from MIR3 run under Apple's mobile Safari bro...
My own personal install of Leopard seems to be having periodic trouble completing a shutdown on the 17' MBP. Annoying? Yes. Worthy of posting something inflammatory such as 'wrong with Leopard's spots'? Doubtful. So, in looking at eWeek's Microsoft Watch's latest article, I leave you w...
So it seems as though a few minutes after I wrote this blog entry, Google put forth the announcement about Android, a project named after the company they purchased a while back. Google is essentially spearheading an open source project that is an open SDK for mobile devices that runs ...
'Our new search capabilities for the iPhone are relevant enhancements that give consumers the full power of mobility and immediate access to REALTOR.com in a manner that fits naturally into their everyday lifestyle,' said DeTuno, senior vice president, product management for REALTOR.co...

Do I care just because I am a Google fanboy? Not exactly, although that does amp up my excitement. With an open platform for development for mobiles, plus Google's conquest of Jaiku for its mobile/presence capabilities - I am a big fan of Jyri Engestrom, the founder of Jaiku, a smart a...
The AppSnapp 'jailbreak' application, released web-wide on Sunday, seems to have struck a chord with iPhone and iPod Touch owners. Claiming 'No hacking required,' the AppSnapp team developed a one-click method, which they cheekily claim also fixes Apple's TIFF bug, 'making your device ...
Google is supposed to be inching closer to unveiling its fabled 'Gphone,' according to the Wall Street Journal Tuesday. The paper says that in the next couple of weeks Google should trot out 'advanced software and services that would allow handset markers to bring Google-powered phone ...
Now that Leopard is out and everyone is, I suspect, feverishly reformatting their laptops and desktops to install the retail copy of Leopard, developers can finally start sharing their Leopard code samples. Rather than me sitting around making up stupid reasons why such-and-such code s...
Let's consider the pages of a traditional corporate Website. They include an 'about me' page, a contact page, a careers section, and probably a page with news and press releases. The words look good on paper, and, more than likely, a committee gave the final sign-off on the site's cont...
Readers of TIME's November 5 edition, which will be on on US newsstands tomorrow November 2, will find that the iPhone is TIME Magazine's Invention of the Year 2007. Among the reasons cited are 'It's touchy-feely' and 'It will make other phones better.' The award also recognizes that t...
Leopard introduces a bunch of amazingly powerful new controls, but one of my favorite new controls is the NSCollectionView. This control works a lot like the FlowLayoutPanel if you're familiar with Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). It essentially is a layout container responsible ...
The first Rich FAQ we are presenting is the long overdue Mobile Ajax FAQ and was created by Ajit Jaokar, Rocco Georgi and Bryan Rieger. We welcome comments and feedback. AJAX is a browser technology that involves the use of existing Web standards and technologies (XML/XHTML, DOM, CSS, ...
I've actually seen a few reports of people having trouble with the upgrade - their computer hangs at the bootup screen for hours on end. Since I didn't 'upgrade' (like a good boy, I reformatted and started over) I didn't experience the hour-long hangs, however, I did experience some de...
There's a really interesting (free) article by Amol Sharma in the Wall Street Journal about Google's expected cellphone software, and whether Google will be able to do the necessary deals with the mobile carriers. In addition to providing core Google apps (search, maps, YouTube, etc.),...
Gee whillikers. After hours on Monday Apple, the PC company people love to love, started behaving like Google. While its Q4 conference call was in progress its stock price went up almost $13 to over $187, a personal best, a position it then failed to hold. Even if it pulled in its Dece...
