Today, while I was circling around my favourite “morning coffee” RSS feeds, I stumbled upon some of the PDC sessions on Silverlight that were held in the past few days, and I was just stunned by the very interesting session Microsoft Silverlight 2 for Mobile: Developing for Mobile Devices. I was just so fascinated by the session that I literally started laughing and everybody in the office just gazed at me in misunderstanding.
In the session you can see how Visual Studio can be run on Windows Mobile device. Yes it is pretty hard to write code and interact with the environment from the little screen of the mobile device, but still it is very very interesting !
This is not the first session from PDC, that I have watched. In the next days I will post more links and articles about the ones I have seen and what is interesting about them. Also I plan to post some articles about a few problems I stumbled upon my development in the last few month, so stay tuned !
Today the first phone with the Android operation system by Google, have been released. This is the HTC G1, formerly known as HTC Dream. The phone is very cool and the Android OS gives you complete integration with all Google services. Here is a presentation of what Android is capable of:
Is this the next step of Google in becoming the world’s Big Brother ?
Currently Google has all your information – contacts, calendar, e-mail, the iGoogle homepage where you put what you like. When you search Google knows what you are interested in and what you might need in order to show you intelligent advertisements. Of course Google says that all this information is strictly confidential and nobody can use it for personal gain, but is that completely true ? As we all know there is no such thing as a confidential information in the Internet world we live in. There is always a way to get it ! I rest my case…
Don’t get me wrong ! I LOVE Google and probably some time in the near future I WILL buy and Android phone. I use Google a lot, as everybody else. I have my e-mail there, contacts, calendar, iGoogle homepage and many, many more. I am just saying, be careful !
