Really old story, but still...
Let me tell you a story about a QNX-based computer that ran 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 15 years. The computer was running just fine until… well, I’ll get to that part in a minute.

The story begins in the mid 1990s, when a paper manufacturing company installed the computer to monitor pressures, temperatures, and a variety of other parameters at a rate of 5000 times per second. A few years later, the company installed a second QNX computer and configured it as a hot standby for the first. That way, if the first computer ever went down, the second one could immediately take over.

For more than a decade, this safeguard proved unnecessary. But recently, the second computer reported that it could no longer communicate with its partner. Assuming that a software error had occurred, the company called in an IT consultant to fix the problem.

Assuming that a software error had occurred,
the company called in an IT consultant.
But what they really needed was a detective.

While Google is shutting down Nexus One and some of its services like Knol, the smartphone vendors think what features can be added to the Ice Cream Sandwich updates for the devices and (is it worth to make those updates at all?), XDA-Developers adapted ICS to the first Google Phone - HTC Dream. It came out ok for such an old device.



Here are the device’s features for those who have forgotten. Apparently, the developers keep on doing a quite workable integration of this first alpha.

After a year of development the final gold version of jQuery Mobile 1.0 based on jQuery 1.6.4 has been released (support for jQuery 1.7 will come with a version of jQuery Mobile 1.1). The framework is designed to develop sites with the touch interface using usual HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Tools like PhoneGap allow easily transforming the site HTML5 into a mobile application and distributing it through the app stores.

Node.js was created by Ryan Dahl in 2009 is a relatively new technology, which has gained the recent popularity among web developers. However, until now some people do not know what Node.js is all about. It is a server-based JavaScript environment that uses the asynchronous event-trigger model. What does this mean? It is simple: it is the environment, which is intended for writing scalable, high-performance applications. It is almost like Ruby's Event Machine or Python's Twisted, but much deeper - JavaScript implements a cycle of events at the level of language itself, and does not as a separate library.

imageA small group of like-minded developers has introduced alpha version software that lets run Android applications on Windows.

The developer’s mission from the company BlueStacks is well expressed in a fun demo video, which can be viewed on the front page of the company: bluestacks.com/home.php. We strongly recommend watching the high quality demo.

It is unlikely that someone would complain on this trip: a team of Google employees recently has traveled across the Swiss Alps to photograph the Albula-Bernina line that is considered one of the most scenic rail routes in the world, and it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The route is known for its mountain sceneries that starts from a Swiss commune Thusis and goes through St. Moritz to the Italian border in Tirano. The panoramas have made with the support of Rhaetian Railway that will appear on the "Google Maps” soon.

Often, there are tasks that require to map a tree structure of interaction of any entity. For example: navigation through the file system, menu of the site or the content of the textbook.

imageThe easiest option to map a tree structure in HTML is listings. But we are interested in trees that have dynamic properties. Here we cannot be without javascript. Since the solution is needed fast, then use of jQuery lets us create dynamic trees that saving our time on coding. In order to save for us a lot more time we use a search engine and look for a suitable solution. In general, it is not just limited to creating a tree on the site in this case, but there are situations when a tree is suitable, but it still misses something and there is no choice, but to modify the existing tree.

Cinemagraph was created during New York Fashion Week last month.

The rising stars Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg are the duo that stands behind the wildly popular Tumblr blog From Me To You.

(Some people might say that these stars have risen considering their recent campaign with Ralph Lauren and Juicy Couture, a photo-article in the New York Times and the appearance in Lucky Magazine, but we are confident that this is only the beginning.)
