BBX Python: Self-contained Demo App  View Printable Version 
Thursday, December 08 2011 @ 09:44 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsEarlier today I wrote about how it turns out that the Tablet OS (2.0.0 beta or later) actually recognizes Python as a direct "entry point" for apps, as it does for apps built using AIR or the Native SDK (WebWorks apps use the AIR entry point at this time).

With the original crude launcher, we'd developed a small set of experiments and demonstration scripts, which you had to copy over the network to "documents/scripts", with the bbxrun.py file sitting above to let you select which one to run.

One of the more recent ones is Mielophone. Itís a minimalistic search application which streams music you request.

Barnes & Noble Exposes Microsoft's "Trivial" Patents and Strategy Against Android  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, November 16 2011 @ 06:39 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsBarnes & Noble has done the world a tremendous favor, by pulling aside the curtain and revealing Microsoft's patent campaign tactics against Android in lurid detail.

It reveals the assertion of "trivial" and "invalid" patents against Barnes & Noble and some shocking details about an "oppressive" license agreement that would have controlled hardware and software design features that Microsoft presented, thus limiting to what degree Barnes & Noble could offer upgrades and improved features to its customers if it had signed it, features it says none of Microsoft's patents cover. Microsoft worked so hard to keep it all secret, and I think you'll see why. It's ugly behind that curtain.

VideoJS - The Open Source HTML 5 Video Player  View Printable Version 
Monday, October 24 2011 @ 06:49 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsIf you are like me then you were very excited about HTML 5's video tag. Simplistic, great functionality, and now it is even supported by all of the latest browsers. Video is just a source away, and easier than ever to portray high quality videos right on your website. HTML 5, like anything else, doesn't have everything we want.

The demise of the Windows platform  View Printable Version 
Thursday, October 13 2011 @ 06:42 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsI bought a Windows game last week. What I got was a scenic tour through the demise of the Windows platform. I knew that Windows as gaming platform was troublesome, but it never was as clear that it's actually moving towards irrelevance. If you ever have seriously played games on Windows you know this cocktail of driver updates, googling error messages, entering illegiible cryptic codes from stickers hidden in game boxes, waiting for online activation, going through update popups of various origins, and what not. It took me something like two hours before I was even able to start the game. I love games, and I have played quite some games on Windows, but I might be done with this now.

Time-zone databse down  View Printable Version 
Thursday, October 06 2011 @ 05:13 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsToday, the time-zone database was closed down.

It is perhaps easy to read that line, think it doesn't affect you, and then move on. But thats just not the case.

The time-zone database (sometimes referred to as the Olson database) is the computing world's principle source of time-zone data. It is embedded in every Unix and Java for starters, and will be used by many websites and probably by your iPhone. You may know it via the IDs, such as "Europe/London" or "America/New_York".

The ultimate quest of bringing Visio support to LibreOffice  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, September 14 2011 @ 04:37 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

General NewsLegacy file formats are evil. They tend to have no written specifications, and when you start reverse-engineering them, you often discover layers of questionable solutions built on top of even more questionable solutions that are carried around for backwards compatibility sake.

So why go through pains of supporting them at all? Simply put, because it's the legacy which isn't always in the past really, because businesses don't like upgrades. Designers keep local cliparts in all kinds of arcane file formats, big publishing houses keep using DOC instead of DOCX, and system integration companies still toss around VSD files.
