SDK Shoot Out, Android Vs. IPhone

ghoti Re:Biased much? (413 comments)

This is a bullshit comparison that doesn't go deeper than "NDA bad, Linux good." What about the actual API? The tools available for profiling code and debugging? GUI designer? Simulator? I like Eclipse and Java, but Xcode and the tools in the iPhone SDK are pretty damn awesome, I doubt that Android is anywhere near that.

eBay To Disallow Checks and Money Orders In US

ghoti Re:If you don't like thier policy, go somewhere el (412 comments)

I don't mind using PayPal, but I really hate the fact that the site is swamped with commercial vendors rather than people selling stuff they don't need any more. eBay needs to be split into a marketplace where you can go to buy new things (like Amazon), and the good old auctioning of used personal stuff. Until they do that, they won't see me again.

What is the highest number of years a former president lived after leaving office? Who served the longest? Whose term was the shortest? This interactive visualization lets you answer these and other questions."

VisualizationGuy (60903) writes "Social websites are all the rage right now, and are not just hyped by the media (MySpace and YouTube in particular), but there are also large amounts of money involved. But does the social model make sense for data analysis and visualization? And will users play and interact with data the way they do with other media? Two websites were launched recently to find out: Swivel and Many Eyes. This review looks at the two sites in terms of their founders, approach, social aspects, technology, capabilities, broad appeal, and ethics."
