So I have been standing at the end of a fork for a year peering down a corner looking at this way and that way trying to figure out where I fit in. I was so enthusiastic and excited about Silverlight when it came out. It was this amazing awesome technology that had this really cool animation and webcam/multimedia piece. I thought if I put my money on Silverlight it’s going somewhere, then HTML 5 came out and the wind shifted. I realized times were changing. I have been working with web technologies ...
I haven’t touched an Apple Machine since high school really. I never really wanted to buy one until recently. I have two Apple devices and I wanted to know how to build a mobile application. I have a strong development background in C++ and PHP as my foundation in college, so I thought why not come up with a way to integrate SharePoint 2010 and iOS. I sat on my hands for about 2 months debating what I wanted to get specwise and landed on a MB Air with 8 gb of RAM a core i7 proc and 512gb SSD. I finally ...
I love Google Analytics! It helps me so much during my day-to-day maintenance of Geekswithblogs.net and our other sites. I can see so much data about our visitors and come up with new ways of delivering more content to our readers so they can really get the most out of our community. Browsers and Browser Versions is a big indicator for me to help decide what we can support and what we need to be testing with. The clear browsers of choice right now are Chrome, IE, and Firefox taking up 94.1%. The ...
First let me say that this is a “what I like” post and not a comparison of platforms. The Windows Phone is the first smart phone that I have owned (no, I’m not 100 or 15 years old). Now that I have done the full disclosure I did want to talk about the features of the Windows Phone that I really enjoy. I have had the Samsung Focus since shortly after it came out. I have found it extremely capable and enjoy the performance of the device. It is light, durable and bright. My wife has the LG Quantum that ...
As you know from previous posts, I'm currently using Sprint's version of the HTC Mogul called the PPC6800 running Windows Mobile 6.0. Up to now, the broadband speed has been pretty decent. About 1/2 DSL speeds or better. The other day HTC announced the upgrade to EVDO Rev A -- the true DSL speed network. I reflashed my firmware pretty smoothly and the upgrade went well. Did I get double speed downloads? Well, it seems snappier, quicker connects, overall a little faster but not 2X. I just now did ...
I just took a 60 mile trip and was checking My Location on the Google Maps for Mobile. To my surprise, it was pretty accurate during the whole trip. The map would place me on the highway or within a 50 yards of the highway along the route. Another interesting detail, I didn't have to request the location all the time, the position would adjust as the car was moving - very much like the it does on the GPS. That brought an interesting thought - Now Google has not only the locations where their devices ...
Today, Google made a new Google Maps for Mobile available on their site. The new beta version includes a My Location functionality that places your location on the map based on the information received from the cell phone towers. I've installed the app on my Blackberry Curve. The My Location function is great, even though it is not as good as a GPS. While in my office, Google Maps placed my location within around 100m of my real location. That was great. The neat trick is that positioning works even ...
Gmail has added IMAP access. It does not show up in all the accounts, but it will be rolled out to all accounts in the next few days. https://mail.google.com/sup... You can configure IMAP on your iPhone too. https://mail.google.com/sup... Anyway there is also a URL for mobile phones which is almost like the web interface. http://m.gmail.com Technorati Tags: Gmail , iPhone , IMAP , Mobile , Google ...
