If ever there is to be a comparison ala the David vs Goliath then this is to be that. Even as Steve Jobs came out of his retirement to unveil yet another jewel to his oeuvre, the iPad for critics and cult followers alike failed to create the same kind of magic and hoopla that was created by the devices that preceded it.
iPad, like all of its predecessors was a design marvel but lacked few of the key features the Apple cult followers were seriously expecting it to come equipped with, now for one the amount of competition for iPad like devices. Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook and Sony’s eReader each have their own amount of market penetration and have each in their own way justified themselves to be the best. The iPad does so many functions that one is pretty bemused of what he has to call it.
And then …
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 …
Historically, adopting the earliest version of any major Microsoft operating system release has been, well, a poor decision. Occasionally, as with Windows NT, we had to wait for a few iterations – until NT4 SP3 – before we can get a fully working OS. And, with the previous Windows Vista fiasco in mind, nobody could blame you for still using Windows XP. But, more than 6 months after the release of Windows 7, it’s become quite clear that there is no reason to postpone until the release of Windows 7 SP1.
A typical reason for holding off on a migration until SP1 is the concern that the new OS will break slowly. That’s not the case with Windows 7.
Many users have been beating the heck out Windows 7 on a variety of configurations and to coin a common phrase, “It just works.” People have tried most mainstream business applications such as Microsoft Office, …
A group of mathematicians have achieved 3-D renderings of the famous 2D fractals of Mandelbrot set. Fractal is defined to be a type of shape that yields detail to the minutest level irrespective of the zoom scale.
From a Mathematical point of view, Mandelbrot set is defined to be set of complex values for which the complex quadratic polynomial zn+1 = zn2 + c remains bounded.
If you are a Math Geek this should surely garner your attention, the 3D simulations of the erstwhile 2D Mandelbrot set are as stunning as the rendering of the artist depiction of the constellations and galaxies. The images are of the finest grain and are termed as Mandelbulbs by the simulators.
