Saturday, December 29, 2012

Yes, there is no Waze (yet), but there are many good alternatives: 1. Nokia Map has added Israeli map, check it out. They also added 3D buildings in Tel-Aviv.

Running Angry Birds on the BUILD Samsung Tablet with Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Saturday, April 21, 2012

If you try to install and run Angry Birds on your BUILD machine, you’ll soon find that you can’t run it because there is no support for OpenGL. AT the first it looks like no support in the beta of Windows 8, but the problem is actually happens also on old Windows version, and the real cause is lack of OpenGL support is in the Display Adapter driver.  I decided that no matter what, I am going to run Angry Birds on my machine. After several hours I can say that I’ve made it. But not without getting deep...

When something become a main stream it is no longer a niche

Saturday, July 2, 2011

Microsoft has shut down its Windows Phone MVP program; they will reopen it as more consumer-focused group. I don't know all the reasons for that, and I would appreciate if they could rearrange the group without retire all mobile MVPs, but I think that there is something else that this news tells us. Windows Phone is not a niche, it is part of something bigger, and the client/consumer device story is changing. We consume information through our PC, Phone, Slate device, TV, Xbox. All of them are part of our everyday user interface, and in many cases for the...

Nostalgic Or Reality: The Comeback of Commodore

Saturday, April 9, 2011

My first personal computer was Commodore VIC-20, or as a geek I should say my first love. With 5KB of RAM (3.5KB for the user) I had to learn Assembly to do a serious game programming. These were the happy 80’s, the 8-bit computer era. From VIC-20 I moved to the Commodore 64 and then to the Commodore 128 (My first dual CPU machine ). In My final electronic project at high-school I built an electrical circuit based on Analog to Digital converter chip. I developed a Sound Sampling application (using Assembly language) that was able to...

iPad, gPad, mPad, App Store – Does the future so bad for power users and developers?

Monday, April 12, 2010

When we look at the mobile phone market, can we project from it about the future of software? Is Windows 8 going to be a closed system? Will we as developers need to upload all our applications to an App-Store or Marketplaces? Will we have Multitasking? Let's look at the iPad, a big iPhone or better a big iPod? Let's say that it will sell more than Windows PC based Tablets. What does it say to Microsoft? Microsoft has pushed the tablet idea since the release of Windows XP tablet edition. Of course the idea about hand-writing recognitions goes...
