One of the really neat features of coding for a portable platform like a phone is that you can use its motion sensors to control the UI. How useful this is in a particular app varies from "neat gimmick" to "UI perfection" -- admittedly the example here is more on the "gimmick" end of the spectrum, but it'll get you started with using the Android motion sensors. We'll carry on using the code from the previous three tutorials, but this time, we're going to add a detector which enables you to start the timer by shaking the phone.
I received this e-mail from the AP this morning -- Dear Users: Please be advised AP has been effected by the automated system patch released by Apple this morning, blocking java based applications on mac computers.

Open Developer Break catches up with miscellaneous news from the open development world. This week: a new Node.js version, Red Hat's Developer Toolset, a new CyanogenMod bug tracker and a collection of Apache releases
Microsoft and BlackBerry face a a paradox. They can't really attract developers in large numbers away from iOS and Android without a critical mass of phones -- and phone buyers tend to stay away from phones without a vibrant app store. It's a stalemate that's going to be tough to break.

At the 2013 CES convention, CNET's editorial staff loved the Dish Hopper DVR and nominated it "Best in Show." That journalistic decision was quickly tossed out, however, by the legal department at CBS, CNET's corporate parent. CBS is involved in litigation against Dish over the Hopper.
New tools help web devs find problem spotsAs every web developer knows, one of the biggest headaches of building modern, standards-compliant web pages is getting them to look and work right in Internet Explorer. Well, coders, apparently Microsoft feels your pain, because it has released a new set of free tools to help you do just that.…
I installed it both on my Windows box and on my laptop running Bodhi. The Windows install was typical, using a Windows Installer. The Linux install was about as easy a Linux install as I’ve ever seen. In Linux, the browser is one file. Save it to the hard drive and either open it through a terminal or set up a link to launch it from the menu.
Many of my previous articles have looked at software packagesthat do scientific calculations and generate scientific results. But,columns of numbers are nearly impossible to make sense of—at least, byregular human beings. So what can you do? The answer is visualization.
Ubuntu is an open source Linux distribution based on Debian Linux which has, in turn, been surpassed in popularity by its own fork: Linux MInt (according to DistroWatch). LInux Mint is just one of many Ubuntu-based alternative distributions that the diverse Linux community has put together to offer up new features, customized user interfaces, built-in applications, and/or tweaks to the OS to enable the pursuit of scientific knowledge.
Prolog is generally regarded as a difficult language to get to grips with. The focus of this article is to select some of the finest Prolog books which help programmers master this language, and develop an in-depth understanding of recursion, constraint logic programming, and searching problem trees. All of the books are available to download for free.
On Thursday morning, Linus Torvalds merged two changes into the main Linux development tree which mean that the samsung-laptop kernel driver will no longer be activated when Linux is booted via UEFI (1, 2). This should resolve the problem of some Samsung laptops being irreparably damaged when Linux is booted using UEFI. The does not, however, mean that the danger is past, as there appear to be other ways in which the sensitive firmware can be disrupted.
