Obsession with the Sea

Once a favorite haunt of pirates, and the setting for Treasure Island, the riches in this area of the West Indies now lie in abundant coral reefs and unpopulated islands accessible only by boat. The crisp, crackling underwater sound I heard was unfamiliar to me. I tried to pinpoint it while caught up in the mesmerizing world of slowly waving purple sea fans, magenta-colored coral, and schools of fish ranging from electric blue to vibrant yellow. When I was able to tear myself away long enough to return to the tender of the 85ft Hatteras, Obsession, I removed my snorkel and asked Captain Gene Costa about the source of the noise. He told me it was the sound of the vividly colored, multistriped parrotfish chewing on the coral. In fact, he said, their teeth are designed for just that purpose. I resumed my drifting, facedown in the 86-degree turquoise sea, this time focuse... (more)

Stanford University iPhone Training Reaches 1M Downloads

ColdFusion Prevents Nudity

Have you ever come up with something clever and thought "Wow that should be on a T-shirt or something"? In the summer before my senior year of high school, my friend Graham Stevenson and I had that thought many times. So many in fact that we decided we should start a T-shirt company to address the growing demand for trendy yet original clothing. When we first started talking about the idea most people asked us "How are you going to start a business with no money, no investors, and no time?" The answer usually made my peers giggle, "It's easy, I'll use ColdFusion." Of course they didn't know I was talking about the handy server-side scripting tool that would allow me to do everything from marketing my website to order processing and inventory tracking. Background I had been using ColdFusion only a bit since I was introduced to it at a summer internship a few summers ... (more)

Extending the Product Catalog

As more and more companies focus on providing higher levels of personalization in the products and services they offer, it's only natural that their online channels offer this same level of personalization. WebLogic Portal includes product catalog components capable of flexibly managing hierarchies of products and services. By default, products in the catalog are defined using standard Dublin Core attributes. This default configuration is sufficient to support most types of products sold over the Internet - books, hardware, camaras, etc. However, certain types of products require that customers select from among desired options before the products can be purchased. We can group these "configurable" products into three main categories based on their configuration needs: Light product configurations: Products that have a small number of simple, mandatory configurable...

Adobe AIR Needs to Become a Real Desktop Platform

On Sunday morning, I got my two conference badges – one for Press and the other one as a Speaker.  Each of those gives an access to special receptions or meetings with Adobe big shots, and I don’t want to miss any of those. While waiting for the doors to the AIR Lab room to open, I overheard how one of the attendees have whispered to the other, “T-Shirts are over there!”. Now I can fulfill my main mission at MAX – bring MAX T-Shirt home for kids.  Being an honest person, I explained the t-shirt girl that I have two badges and asked if I can get two t-shirts.  She scanned both of my IDs – everything’s kosher. But then, the girl realized that making such decisions requires approval, and asked the senior t-shirt distributor for an advice. The older lady said, “No, one person – one t-shirt”. So much for being honest… My bad,  I violated the KISS principle – keep it simple... (more)

Welcome to Your New Language One can assume that if you're reading a journal devoted to Java you've taken the first steps into this relatively new and emerging language that has filled up many columns in every major trade magazine since its release only a couple of years ago.

Like a Wet T-Shirt, Niagara's Form Vaguely Seen

Sun was at Hot Chips this week talking about its upcoming Niagara “throughput” processor, a little four-thread/eight-core number that’s reportedly hit silicon and should turn up in boxes in 2006. As glamorous as all this threads and cores business sounds, Niagara is still a relatively low-end chip that chip watcher Nathan Brookwood describes as “edgy” and meant for boxes that are “network facing, not data facing.” It’s not a number cruncher, but more of a web server platform. He said it was “very different and if it works, it’ll be a real boost in price/performance.” The promise of Niagara along with Sun’s upcoming number-crunching chip Rock, with even more threads and cores, may keep some of Sun’s customers from jumping ship. Sun has said Niagara is spec’d for throughput 15 times an UltraSparc IIi, which could be compared to a Pentium or low-end Xeon. Niagara was ... (more)
