From time to time, exactly every 2 years customers have to choose between quit or extending the mobile contract. The business terms of t-mobile been fine and when extending the next choose will be between invoice credit or a new phone. Mostly my decision had been the new phone, but which one ?
The technical data was discussed alot and I’ll not repeat it here. I hadn’t experience with the Microsoft Windows 8 OS until now and no time to test. Still Android and iOS on the list. The new Nexus and the Sony Xperia Z wasn’t available at the time of ordering and the other competitors are to heavy in their dimensions for a mobile phone. Decision between Android, iOS and Windows 8 was a neck-and-neck race and the key point had been the invested money in Apps. Binding the hardware and the software in the way Apple does makes it some kind of difficult to change the operation system.
iPhone 5 slims in weight and is still good-looking, overall a good decision.

“Smartphones are equipped with dizzying array of wireless communication capabilities. Some of these features just go totally unnoticed. One such wireless communication protocol is called ANT+. A friend of mine wanted to make a working prototype of an idea he had using ANT+ technology. While there are other mcu’s (read atmega/arduino) already had some libraries and code written for communicating against ANT+, it wasn’t enough for me.
Most of the existing code only worked as a slave, where it just tried to receive data sent by Garmin Heart Strap.
This slave implementation was only on either arduino or PC (python and C)
What I was more interested in was to leverage the ANT+ radio to not just receive data, but also send data. I wanted the mcu to interact with the world and use ANT+ to transmit data to my cellphone, for example.”
“This is the beginners guide for the IOIO for Android board and is intended for users that have never written an Android app. The goal of this tutorial is to show how to write a simple app that communicates with the IOIO board.”
“During a recent earnings call, Adobe CEO Shantanu Naraye revealed to investors that a beta version of Flash Player 10 for mobiles will be released in October of this year.
The new Flash player will support Android, Nokia Symbian, Palm Web OS, and Windows Mobile powered devices, and is expected to be unveiled at the Adobe MAX conference for developers that is scheduled to take place in October.”
“To see how well this idea worked I decided to build a small robot and a few applications to control it last weekend. The result of this is the Forknife Android G1 based robot, the RoboComm android application, and the RoboServ java server which I am happy to say work well. An overview of how the entire system works may be seen below.
In case others are interested in this, stuff, I have made my code for the robot, server, and android application available under the GPLv2 license. Please don’t get too upset with me if the code isn’t very polished.. I threw this together pretty quickly. At least I commented it! Be thankful ”
