Flickr has released a new version of its mobile site that affords several new features, most notably the ability to stream video clips up to 90-seconds in length. Video streaming will be initially available for only the iPhone and iPod Touch, with support for other handsets that use Webkit, Firefox Mobile, or Opera Mini to come. Previously, users could upload videos to Flickr from mobile devices but this is the first time they can actually watch them on their phones. Mobile playback for Flickr is based on Yahoo’s Video Platform, which can serve content to various device types, screen sizes and codecs. In addition to video playback support, the new mobile site supports the favoriting of photos and videos, as well as the changing of photo permissions. Flickr doesn’t have a native application for iPhone or Android, so this mobile site is intended to be a universal a... (more)

Programming iOS 5: Fundamentals of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch Development Book Review

A little background so you know what type of experience I have. I have been a Microsoft .NET architect and developer since the first beta release. Before that C, C++, ColdFusion, ASP, JavaScript and of course HTML. Being a .NET developer has many advantages, but the one major disadvantage we suffer has driven me to Java and Objective-C over the past year. That one disadvantage? Microsoft themselves. They come off as completely lost and have wreaked havoc on .NET developer community the past few years. I have read several books on programming with Objective-C, but this is by far the most comprehensive and well put together. One book I would recommend to anyone coming from the .NET world is Migrating to iPhone and iPad for .NET Developers. After advising the reader to brush up on their C by reading certain parts of C Programming Language, and then spending a chapter sho... (more)

Geek Engineer Sells Revolutionary Physical Exercise Manual, for $4,860 a Copy

Columbus, OH, July 17, 2012 --(PR.com)-- During eight months of chemotherapy for advanced cancer in 1992, structural engineer Craig Wise, noticed that only after doing cardio type exercise, he felt well for the remainder of the day. By the year 2000, his knees could no longer take the stout cardio workouts he had become addicted to doing. So in his basement he began studying how to strengthen the human body just as he would a new building design, which involves tracing the involved forces, to see where and how they interact, dissipate and escape. This eventually showed him how to design hundreds of unconventional exercise methods and devices, all designed to direct most, to all of their motion resistance energy in only the directions that oppose muscle contractions. In other words, powerful, even healthy bones are no longer needed to restore, build and keep most muscl... (more)

CES 2013: A Wrap-Up and Final Thoughts

The big story of the 2013 International CES (the Consumer Electronics Show) was what was missing. A quick walk through amazon.com’s 1,000 retail show rooms (you may know them as Best Buy) tells the story. The electronics giant’s days – at least in its current form – are quickly coming to an end. Best Buy will have to reimagine itself in light of its real problem – several aisles of products are disappearing because… there’s an app for that. Point-and-shoot cameras, video cameras, music players, GPS systems, voice recorders, calculators, digital picture frames, and a hundred other products have all been rolled into smartphones and tablets. The number of manufacturers who are not showing these devices speaks volumes about where the industry is going. Goldilocks Screens A screen is a screen is a screen.
