If he went to the voting place wearing a tie, chances are that he's voting for himself. :-)

Game Development On Android

Objective-C is not all that bad...

I'm a Java Web developer, without any real experience on desktop programming. But recently I was given the chance to do a small iPhone app for one of our clients, so I had to learn Objective-C from scratch to do it.

Objective-C might seem a little weird at first, but when you got used to the sintax the concepts used on the frameworks are not all that different from the Java counterparts. Appkit for example is much more pleasant to work with than Swing, for example.

It took around a week to learn the Objective-C basics, and another week to build a fairly complete prototype of the application.

So while might be a barrier for Java developers, it's not that high.

I have one word for you:


See now how important Safari is? Oh, and WebKit is used on Nokia phones too, and it's becoming a major player on the embedded browser market.

Hands-On With Windows 7's New Features

vhogemann Re:New features are irrelivant... (662 comments)


Windows 2000 actually is faster on Pentium class computers than Windows 98... but after that, Microsoft started to add more and more bloat.

On a side note,

Each interation of OSX seems to add performance instead of taking it. Also true for some Linux distros... Why Windows realeases can't behave the same way?

vhogemann writes "PCPro.co.uk is reporting the following:

Asus chairman Jonney Shih sprang a surprise during Intel's Computex keynote today with the announcement of a $189 laptop...

...The notebook uses a custom-written Linux operating system, much like the OLPC, though unlike the OLPC, Asus has chosen a more conventional interface. The desktop looked fairly similar to Windows and we saw Firefox running on one 3ePC.

The article also said that this laptop uses solid state storage, and boots under 15 seconds, has 512MB of RAM, but the CPU remains as a mystery."

vhogemann writes "It seems that the number of Linux PDA devices just keeps growing, the German based phone maker Road just announced an Qtopia based Linux Cellphone/PDA. The original article gives more details: Opening the clamshell device reveals a QWERTY keyboard and a 640 x 240 display — closed, the unit presents a 102 x 65 monochrome phone screen. The HandyPC contains the usual array of PIM and messaging apps, along with a viewer to read Microsoft Office files. It will ship with PC synchronisation tools, media player software and a web browser. It can even be used as a voice recorder."
