Code Compiled: A Short History of Programming - Part 3 By Omed Habib Look at how far we’ve come. Just seven decades ago, the word “computer” referred to someone in an office with a pile of charts and a slide rule. Then ENIAC, the first electronic computer, appeared. It was followed quickly by the Commodore 64 personal computer and later, the iPhone. Today, the Sunway TaihuLight crunches data by combining 10,649,600 cores and performing 93 quadrillion floating point operations every second. Where will we be in another seven decades? In part one of this series, we covered how the evolution of hardware shaped the development of programming languages. We then followed up in part two with the impact of the software created by those languages. In this final blog in the series, we’ll look at how programming has taken the leap beyond computers into devices, with an emphasis... (more)

Apple iPhone 7: Are You Kidding Me? | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #Mobile

Apple iPhone 7: Are You F#$king Kidding Me? Let me get right to the point. The new iPhone 7 is a fantastic, awesome, incredible, spectacular iteration of the iPhone 6. Great processor (a quad-core, 64-bit A10 Fusion), outstanding rear-facing camera (12 MP), a new wireless chip (W1) to facilitate Bluetooth connectivity, iOS 10, a pressure-sensitive home button, and taptic feedback. Oh, yeah, there’s one more thing … There’s no headphone jack. Calm down, fanpeople – I’m going to make my case. It would have been fine to replace the 3.5 mm jack with an additional lightning port. If the iPhone 7 had two lightning ports, you would be able to do all of the following: Listen to Music While Charging Your iPhone Talk with Wired Headphones While Charging Your iPhone Use a Payment Dongle While Charging Your iPhone Do Anything Other than Charge Your iPhone While Charging Your i...

Digital Technologies Must Disappear in 2017

Almost a year ago, I wrote these words, "Technology has reached the tipping point for me, it moved from a help to a hindrance."  The plethora of adrenaline and endorphin inducing mobile apps, 24x7 news, notifications, alerts and updates, drip fed my brain and hindered my "deep work and deep thoughts."  In Cal Newport's new book titled, "Deep Work" he posits that most knowledge workers need concentration and substantial time, dedicated and uninterrupted, to produce their best work. He argues that a lot of technologies and open office layouts today inhibit creativity, "deep work" and "deep thoughts," and are the very things that are most highly valued, and one of the key differentiators between humans and robots. Newport argues that we must understand and optimize the conditions that enable our brains to work best.  To sum up his argument, constant drip feeding techno... (more)

The March Goes on for the iPad 2 in 2011

I have been using Apple's iPad since it was launched and am totally hooked on using it whilst out on the road in a personal & business basis. So yesterday we had the announcement of Apple's iPad2 and I was glued, like most of the internet, to the live feeds etc. Firstly, I have to say what a delight it was to see Steve Jobs come back for the day to announce the updated device. Secondly the update is not massive, it is not a game changer like the introduction of the iPad in 2011, but it is still respectful enough for iPad converts to upgrade and for the iPad2 to continue its march ahead in 2011 (excuse the pun March... as we are looking towards release on March 11 in the US and March 25 in other countries). What this revision does is to push it further ahead, maintaining its lead in the Tablet Market, which is definitely here to stay.... Along with defining the stand... (more)

8 Tips for Going Paperless In Your Small Business

8 Tips for Going Paperless In Your Small Business Ray Coleman is a small business owner who writes about money management, green living, and sustainability.   One of the great benefits of the modern age is the ability of small businesses to conduct a majority of their operations in the digital realm. Eliminating the need for bulky file cabinets, storage facilities, photocopiers, printers, and scanners can reduce overhead dramatically. Replacing costly courier services with emails, and swapping out newsletters and solicitations for social media and web-based marketing programs means serious cost savings, as well. Essentially, all of this comes down to replacing paper with pixels. By taking your business green, you're not only helping the environment, you're freeing up a ton of working capital for your venture – and often creating a better and preferred experience f... (more)

SYS-CON's iPhone Developer Summit Day One ROCKS

Today was the first day of SYS-CON's iPhone Developer Summit, in the Roosevelt Hote in NYC... and I'm pleased to report that the first day ROCKED! We had an average of 65+ attendees in the 5 sessions today, concentrating & listening to our technical presenters. Some attendees were already iPhone Developers, some newbie's and some just here to understand what the excitement is all about for developing for this cool device. So basically a real cross section, which makes for a exciting conference! I'm sure they wre not disappointed, as the first presenter to kick off the conference was Julio Barros giving an cool overview of Getting Started Programming with Objective-C and the iPhone, followed by Senthil Krishnapillai of Sybase, who presented a very nice overview on Sybase's view of Breaking the Mold - iPhone for the Mobile Enterprise. Straight after lunch followed Jaso... (more)

How To Earn Money Selling Your Photos on Internet

Stock Photography on Ulitzer Got a digital camera? Now you can earn money selling your pictures on the Internet! If you have a good eye and if you are a creative person, you can generate very nice monthly income by selling your pictures on stock photography web sites. In a month or two you will start collecting monthly PayPal transfers for few hundreds bucks from any agency you decided to work with. You probably can not live from a few hundreds bucks a month, but come on – at least it pays you back for all that nice and expensive photographic gear you have purchased last year, and pays back quit fast. I truly love online stock photography phenomenon, since it is the first in the world and probably the only business model which allows amateur photographers like you and me to earn some money from they lovely hobby. In fact, if you are a talented photographer and you ... (more)

I Have Got The Ultimate Mobile Device... Now Just For One Small Step Further

In my last article, which set and solved the problems for an On-the-Road Information Worker (Insurance Assessor). I told what Enterprise Mobility could achieve with cool software and hardware. Now taking the story one step along would rock.... leaving a printed document! Even now, a few years after I saw and bought the Brother MW-140BT it still looks a cool. With the Bluetooth Mobile Printer (MW-140BT) alongside the Apple iPhone, they look like a partnership made in heaven... but that is where the vision currently stops. As far as I know the iPhone Bluetooth stack is not as fully featured as it could be. On switching on my iPhone's Bluetooth in the office, I was able to see a few Macbook's & PC's but that was it... bummer :-( A cry for help... I have got the Ultimate Mobile Device... I can build cutting-edge Mobile Applications... Now just for one small step furthe... (more)

Sybase and Orange Business Services

On Tuesday I reported that at CeBit in Hannover, Germany... SAP & Sybase announced the first set of applications to Millions of Mobile Workers. This will extend the reach of SAP Business Suite Applications (including SAP CRM), to iPhone, Windows Mobile and other Mobile Device Users. Then on the next day came another great announcement that Orange Business Services will leverage Sybase’s enterprise device management platform (Afaria) to help companies tackle the challenge resulting from the increasing number of... mobile workers devices applications and ever-growing heterogeneity of corporate mobile environments. I have always said that, both Management & Security are inter-dependant and if not in place, your valuable enterprise mobile asset is vulnerable as soon at it is goes 'on-the-road'. I use the wording valuable, not really due to the cost of the actual device, ... (more)

Build Once, Deliver Anywhere, No Objective C Required

Last week I presented at the iPhone Developer Summit iPhone Developer Summit an alternative option of app development for the iPhone or any mobile device. The basic premise is to use the Tools or Development platforms you already know to modify or build applications that can optimized for viewing on the iPhone yet actually run on XenApp servers within the datacenter. The concept was very well received by non-developer IT Pro's and developers that are experts in other platforms, now trying to get their head around Objective C and other iPhone specific considerations. For the existing iPhone Developers the concept was foriegn and they remained skeptical. Thats OK, there is lots of room for more native iPhone apps and reason's to go mobile. As soon as users get the taste of leaving their laptop home there will allways be all those other app's or docs they will want acc... (more)
