Just initially use the *ores string in the ore dictionary and then when you get a gold just change it.

Great example of reusing content in a way that benefits both parties. When we restrict content usage completely, we lose out on great content like this.

Who needs rainbow tables when you can compute the hashes faster than you can load them off disk.

On my run this morning, saw a peacock roaming the neighborhood. Weird.

Great post by Patrick Rhone at Minimal Mac about HP and the "tablet market" in general ...

To HP et al: "Stop trying to make iPads. Make markets."

Disruptive. You should know by now that I normally do not get into much “news” around here. Especially when it's not specifically Mac news. There are a ton of great Mac news sites out there and I ...

It's dying trying to access data in an array that isn't there.

Why I call it a fluke is that it's trying to call slot -1 in the array. Arrays don't have negative number slots!

Incredible work this company is doing.
 
Part II of the very cool Oblong "gesture-based computing" session

Continuation of the mind-blowing demo.

This is part II (Part I at http://youtu.be/fcMhZ9J0qN8 showed off the technology, in Part II you see where Oblong is taking the technology and productizing it). John Underkoffler, chief scientist, Oblong Industries, was the tech advice behind the film "Minority Report" and then he built his own company to make that science fiction real. Here he shows me his latest work which is, indeed, mind blowing. This is part I, in Part II, you'll see a new conference room that Oblong has built using these technologies.

Why do programmers think asking if Oct 31 and Dec 25 are the same day is funny?

So, how long will Android remain open while competitors continue to fork their own proprietary versions ... so far Amazon and Baidu.

I agree that Google wants Android to spread far and wide. But there might be scenarios that it spreads beyond Google's control. The Nook Color is a good example, except that it is a passive system.

But let's look at the forthcoming Amazon tablet. No doubt, it will not be so passive. Does Amazon using Android like this cost Google any additional money? How many potential $500 Android tablet buyers will instead choose the ~$250 Amazon tablet? Amazon just might find that sweet spot for a more inexpensive tablet that the Touchpad was unfortunate enough to find. I would argue that this situation indeed costs Google money by shutting down several of it's revenue opportunities by stripping sales from a duly licensed Android manufacturer and moving them to a forked version, stripped of everything Google.

As for the Amazon store currently being a joke ... do you think it would stay stagnant in the face of 2 - 5 million new Amazon tablet owners? Probably not. I imagine Amazon even working some deals to lock in a few exclusive titles as well.

I'm sure Android is picking up some new manufacturers. But I also see some of it's biggest manufacturers starting to hedge their bets, either continuing development on their own proprietary OS, or starting to experiment with Windows 8, some in a big way.

And one more potentially interesting curveball, is the Oracle vs. Google lawsuit. One potential outcome being talked about is a $10 - $15 retroactive license for each Android device being paid to Oracle. That could be potentially billions of dollars for a device who's goal is to spread far and wide. In that case, forks of the OS get even more expensive unless Google starts closing some doors.

Day two of Android development training.

I could not complete part of an exercise because the Dell Streak 7 I am using does not have a hardware Search button, like most all Android phones. The instructor put up some code to let us tap into the built-in Search UI on tablets. I could not get it to work. He came over and finally realized his code only works in Honeycomb (3.0) and later. My Dell Streak is running Froyo (2.2). Perfect example of the Android fragmentation problem.

And before I forget, what college freshman designed Android's screen rotation system?!? So the user just rotated their screen, let's blow away all your current UI views and let you recreate them all in the new orientation. Oh, the user was in the middle of editing something, I hope you saved it, because it's gone now. What kind of system is that? Oh and by the way, for all your trouble, you still don't get an animated rotation.

And there was much typing of XML …
