Apple News:Amazon’s $50 Fire tablet reviewed: Suprisingly, it doesn’t suck | Ars Technica

Amazon’s $50 Fire tablet reviewed: Suprisingly, it doesn’t suck | Ars Technica But Amazon's new Fire tablet is, remarkably, even cheaper than the competition, and sacrifices little despite its low price. At £50 ($50) it's one of the cheapest tablets you can buy from a big-brand manufacturer, and it's perfectly capable and pleasant to use. Oh sure, it's not exactly what you'd call a looker, the low resolution display is merely adequate, and you won't be able to run all of your favourite Android apps without a little work thanks to Fire OS, Amazon's forked version of Android that lacks the Play Store.
As long as I can watch BOSCH on it, I'll be happy. Even better: deliver it to me with one of the Amazon warehouse robots.

Apple News:Windows Phone has a new app problem | The Verge

Windows Phone has a new app problem | The Verge While the app gap has always been a problem, Windows Phone is now five years old and it's still facing new challenges. Over the past year developers haven't flocked to Microsoft's platform to improve its app situation
I'm not sure there is much journalism here. As a 20 year Mac developer, I find Microsoft's WinObjC project to be a very exciting development.

Can you imagine corporate developers rewriting their custom, in-house applications every year to deal with the latest fashion trend on iOS? Oh, I remember, you never worked in corporate development. The answer is: once. They'd do it once. And then by the 3rd upgrade crisis they're going to look for a more stable platform. Tada! Microsoft to the rescue. Neither Apple nor Android nor Microsoft is all things to all people. Although Apple may have the press in their pocket. Good for them!

I like my $80 Windows 8 phone (unlocked, no contract) just as much as my iPod 5G. And get this: the Microsoft browser actually works with the website that I use 8 hours a day.

Apple News:Here's everything announced at Twitter's Flight developer conference | VentureBeat | Dev | by Ken Yeung

Here's everything announced at Twitter's Flight developer conference | VentureBeat | Dev | by Ken Yeung SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter has just wrapped up its keynote event at its second annual Flight developer conference. There was quite a lot of ground covered, starting with a quick note from new chief executive Jack Dorsey, who reached out to developers as he set the tone for Twitter’s new direction
I think the error was limiting the API usage. This is a product that only has value with high usage.

Apple News:Watch Steve Jobs’ right-hand woman talk early days of Apple | Cult of Mac

Watch Steve Jobs’ right-hand woman talk early days of Apple | Cult of Mac Kate Winslet has been earning rave reviews for her performance as Joanna Hoffman in the new Steve Jobs movie. Hoffman was one of the original members of the Macintosh (employee #5 to be exact), and was notorious at Apple as one of the few employees who boss Steve Jobs around.
Bossing the boss.

Apple News:Turning a crappy old Windows PC into a full-fledged Chromebook with CloudReady | Ars Technica

Turning a crappy old Windows PC into a full-fledged Chromebook with CloudReady | Ars Technica Which is why I was intrigued when a pitch for Neverware’s CloudReady showed up in my inbox. CloudReady is a fork, of sorts, of Chromium OS, the open source code that Chrome OS is based on, and it promises to turn old PC hardware into nearly fully functional Chromebooks, complete with the features of Chrome OS’ management console.
Would love to hear from anyone that creates a Parallels disk image version of this which works with older Parallels.
