Unity Mobile to Desktop
Screenshots of upcoming Unity mobile and desktop applications. Also a video of the Ubuntu Music app running as a mobile app and transitioning into a desktop app.
Bash Command Line History Today
Your typical nixCraft piece with good information on bash topics, this one on the bash command line history and how it can be retrieved, searched, and executed with a few keystrokes. Note to self: Must keep CTRL-R on the brain to search backwards through the history buffer for previously used command strings.
Wicket 7 Milestone 5
My favorite Web Framework, Apache Wicket, has a new release, the Milestone 5 of Wicket 7.0.0. Great to see the progress continue in this excellent Java Web Platform.
University of California San Francisco Hospital is deploying robots to perform menial tasks that staff typically performs, like delivering supplies and drugs. The robots come equipped with biometrically and PIN-locked drawers for secure equipment and sample transport, are self-charging (with up to 10 hours of activity between charges), and can carry up to 1,000 pounds.
How to Tie Your Shoes
Six techniques on lacing running shoes to help with issues like a wide forefoot, narrow foot, high arch, heel slipping and toenail problems.
The Java Equals Comparison
One of the interesting differences from .NET/C# for me when I moved to Java was ‘==’ for comparing two strings. In Java we’re identifying two strings as the same object and not simply by value as in .NET/C#, which is why we’ll usually want to use the Java equals() method to compare the object’s value instead of ‘==.’ Good examples and an explanation of interning, or when Java stores a single copy of distinct string values and how that affects string comparisons.
Simultaneous Tag Editing Enabled
A description and video of the new Simultaneous Tag Editing Feature of IntelliJ IDEA 14.1. That IDE gets more and more awesome.
Feedly at the Command Line
This is probably the coolest thing I’ve seen in the last few days, a Linux console version of Feedly. I use Feedly all the time and will probably continue using the web and Android versions rather than a console window, but dang it’s cool!
