Amazon Introduces AWS Cloudformation

February 25, 2011 |

Amazon web services LLC has announced AWS Cloudformation, a simple way for developers and businesses to create collections of related AWS resources and provision them in orderly and predictable way. Users can use AWS CloudFormation’s sample templates or create their own templates to describe the AWS resources required to run their application.

AWS CloudFormation takes care of ‘how’ the resources are provisioned. All you have to worry about is ‘what’ resources are required. Also with this the need to manually recreate an application’s stack for each deployment by developers will be comfortably avoided. According to the company, developers and businesses just have to focus on their applications with AWS at hand.

Customers can create CloudFormation templates and deploy the associated resource stacks via the AWS Management Console, CloudFormation command line tools or APIs. It can also be used across multiple AWS Availability Zones to configure a wide range of AWS resources including Amazon EC2 … Read More

About the Second MAC Display And Air Display For Your iPad

December 25, 2010 |

Your iPad is a great tool to use as a second display when your using your first on your MAC. The MAC II (which was introduced in 1987) has been capable of using multiple screens since the beginning. The Air Display Application was not as fun for me to hear about. It has a connection to WiFi so there was a little doubt in my mind about the application. It actually ran wonderfully when I went to first give it a try on my personal computer. I then decided to put the MAC version on my computer, so I started downloading it right away. Right away, after I re-started the iPad and watched the system convert it to a second display via my Macbook Pro. I was instantly hooked. I was actually able to pull pieces of my Photo shop application as well as pull the Safari web browser buttons on to the application as … Read More

My iPhone Favorites Are Now My Current Favorites

December 13, 2010 |

Double tapping the Home button has been replaced with having to double tap the Home button to activate multi-tasking which are new features of the iOS 4. Previously, before this change was made and when the iOS3 was out you could use the double clicking the Home button to be customized to what you wanted attached to it. I used the Phone Favorites for mine. I know other people that used ones like iPod, Search or even the Camera page. But now with iOS 4 as your new addition, you won’t really have any say in the matter. It will bring up the Muti-tasking page whether you like it or not.  So your probably asking yourself since it IS a phone….. how can you access your Phone Favorites since you can’t do it from the Home button. First, you would launch the Phone application and then you would have to click on Favorites.  Even though … Read More

Review For the Ringtone Designer Pro

December 8, 2010 |

It’s pretty obvious to most that if you want to put a ringtone on your iPhone, all you have to do is access iTunes to do it. So what if you want to do it right then and there with only your iPhone handy? That is where the Ringtone Designer Pro comes in. The hard part is getting your homemade music actually put on the iPhone itself. Apple has put a bit of a block on what it will allow the application to do so it is at no fault of the developers that there is a problem in this area. It’s a case of not letting anyone put their own music on the iPhone is a straightforward way. It has to look like you basically got the ringtone from a different source. You have to swing it back and forth between computers an upload it through iTunes in order for it to work properly … Read More

A Way To Track Your Website Stats On The Run

November 27, 2010 |

As a developer and website designer one of the most important things to me is tracking clients as well as my own websites. The tracker I most use is Google Analytics and the best fit that ties into it is Analytics App. This app is available for both the iPad and iPhone devices. A larger interface on the iPad (because of its larger screen) is the only difference between adding the app to the devices. The interface is well done but could use a little more modern style. I would describe it as being a mix of an iPhone app and a lesser app. It can be purchased at the App Store for both the iPad and the iPhone and isn’t made to be universal.

The Stats Is What It’s All About!

I require that any type of app I use ties in with all the features of the Google Analytics. The Analytic apps … Read More

Windows Phone 7: First Impressions

October 18, 2010 |

Ease of use is the strength of the new Windows Mobile OS. With a screen filled with six square icons, you can go to the next block of six icons with a simple swipe. The initial screen has a black background with green and orange icons used to make a call, and an application area that integrates well with the Xbox, Zune media player, and Office.

The obvious weakness of touchscreen smartphones is, as usual, short battery life. Microsoft claims that it can run for two days with normal use. Although, it is not clarified yet, what is considered as “normal use”?

If with Android, you need to have a Gmail account to activate the phone, in Windows Phone 7 you can do the same with Hotmail. Compared with Symbian, Android or iPhone, the application management is very different. The integration is complete, but you won’t have the feeling of being … Read More

Top 10 Adobe Air Applications

February 24, 2010 |

AIR (which stands for Adobe Integrated Runtime) has been getting a lot of attention since it was announced and has currently over 30 million users and thousands of developers working with it.

It is basically a mix of a browser with Adobe’s Flash and Flex technologies, which allows users to have a much tighter and advanced connection of their online stuff (servers, video and social services, etc) with their personal computer. For example, you could create an AIR application that would allow you to download, upload and browse videos on a mix of popular video services, all from one beautiful control panel.

Or, as an example, let’s take Piwik, a self-hosted alternative to Google Analytics, the best and pretty much the only such tool on the market – it has a good dashboard with all the information you would need, but the representation is not as beautiful as Google’s. There are no maps, nice … Read More
