iPhone Summit at Cloud Expo
One of the biggest problems developers have when building apps for the iPhone
is memory violations.
A lot of developers, especially those who come from a Java or .NET
background, have trouble adjusting to an environment where they need to
manually keep track of reference counts and they need to be explicitly aware
of their own memory management.
I've known quite a few developers who tried their hand at programming for the
iPhone and they threw up their hands and quit when they started trying to
track down memory problems.
I'm certainly not condoning that kind of behavior, I'm just recognizing that
the lack of built-in garbage collection represents both a learning curve and
a frustration obstacle for new iPhone developers, whether they've been doing
other programming for 2 or 20 years.
Thankfully, there's something you can do about it. O... (more)
This is the second in a series of five initial articles, in which I'm going
to put my thoughts and findings on the subject of Enteprise Mobility. For
this article I've decided to tackle the way that Business is viewing
Mobility. This has definately changed over the last few years and has been
caused by various factors.
Economic factors (as mentioned in my first article) Diversity of devices
(coming onto the market and into their companies)
Sophistication of devices & device operating systems (opening up innovative
designs for mobile applications)
Ubiquitous high speed networks (allowing always available connectivity)
Mobility is now looked on as a Strategic Platform rather than an item on an
accountants spreadsheet. This Strategic platform should deliver precious
corporate back-end data, which over 70% still resides on 'legacy' systems, to
a wide variety of devices be... (more)
iPhone Apps on Ulitzer
iPhone Apps on Ulitzer - The Apple iTablet or iSlate is due to be shown off
to the world January 27th, and unleashed on us sometime in March.
The blogosphere has been buzzing about the topic. Joe Wilcox of BetaNews.com
said “The world doesn’t need an Apple Tablet, or any other” (full post
MG of TechCrunch followed up with “The World Doesn’t Need Someone Telling
Us What We Don’t Need In Tech” (full post here). I think both writers
make some good points, but I wanted to give my thoughts, and ask the readers
of CTOvision theirs.
The Apple Tablet is rumored to cost $1000. So the first word that comes to my
mind is “overpriced.” When you can purchase a decent netbook for under
$300, a solid ultra-portable 12-14″ (laptop) for $500, and a good business
laptop for under $700…why would you ever pay $1000 for a simple tablet?
Quite frankly, I... (more)
iPad on Ulitzer
Cloud Computing Expo - The debut of the iPad promises significant
opportunities well beyond just Apple.
The iPad promises to energize the emerging tablet PC segment, creating a
potential semiconductor opportunity of over US$4.1 billion in 2014 reports
Other component vendors will capitalize on the new opportunity for batteries
and displays, as well.

Lately there has been a lot of rumor on the web about the iPhone 5, or
whatever it will be called... 4GS? Also today we have the announcement of the
iPad 2. One thing that most iSpeculators and Technical iBloggers seem to
agree on, with regard to the iPhone 5, along with more internal memory for
running of programs and a faster processor, is the use of NFC (Near Field
Communication). Yes still speculation until the time the next iPhone will be
announced, which will probably be in June at Apple's WWDC (World Wide
Developer Conference), but worth talking about in advance. I am also
wondering if we will see NFC in the iPad 2 or will Apple wait until a later
As a quick example of NFC think, think of something many thousands of London
Commuters use use daily, the London Undergrounds successful use of the Oyster
Card and beyond that Barclaycard's Contactless Payment ... (more)

Todd Schick, Director of Technology and Business Development at ComponentOne,
will deliver the presentation " Creating Native-Looking Applications for the
iPhone with ASP.NET" at SYS-CON's iPhone Developer Summit 2009 East
(co-located with AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo) in New York City this

For ASP.NET developers, creating Web applications which exploit and conform
to the advanced interface design of the iPhone requires familiarity with new
standards and technologies. This session baselines the challenges and the
exciting potential of iPhone Web programming. It then demonstrates how the
new "ComponentOne Studio for iPhone" enables developers to get up to speed
quickly to create ASP.NET Web applications which closely emulate the UI
design of native iPhone applications.

Following on from my earlier blog "Securing and Delivering Business Data on
the iPhone" , today Sybase shipped a new version of iAnywhere Mobile Office
for Windows Mobile, Symbian and iPhone users in the enterprise.
The new release offers enhanced administrative, network security, deployment
features and allows the extension of enterprise-class email and PIM data from
Lotus Domino and Microsoft Exchange mobile devices. In turn this will allow
the reduction of the total cost of ownership when extending email and
In particular this is major news for the iPhone's ability to be adopted by
businesses, as iAnywhere Mobile Office provides a unique approach for
security with an enterprise application sandbox model for email, calendar and
tasks along with on-device and over-the-air encryption as well as application
password protection. It also allows use... (more)
This is a major milestone for an outstanding iconic Platform; from a company
that always gives 100%... Apple... if they go into a market... they go into
Since the iPhone was ‘born', we have seen many OS updates and two variants
of the iPhone hardware... as well as a lot of consumer excitement, which is
eventually coming to the Enterprise Mobility world.
What can't be forgotten is that without the iPhone developers of this world,
this would not have been possible. There are 35,000 applications on the App
Store and each and every iPhone developer, that has either a free or
chargeable application, should take a part of this celebration. We now look
forward to the GA release of the iPhone 3.0 OS and the possibility of new
Well done everyone.
According to BusinessWeek, Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam (pictured) has
been speaking with Apple executives, and the iPhone rumor mills are saying
that perhaps Verizon is considering becoming involved with Apple to help
launch a smaller iPhone-like device currently under development.
Whether or not the AT&T iPhone will one day be joined by others, one thing is
clear and that is that the iPhone is now being adopted by enterprises. In
fact, many believe that the iPhone will end up the year as having been be the
most adopted enterprise device in 2009.
From a starting-point of just over 500 when it was first launched, Apple's
App Store has about 25,000 applications available and downloads recently
surpassed 1 billion. And its adoption by the enterprise is one of the themes
of the upcoming iPhone Developer Summit being held in New York City (June 22,
2009), at The R... (more)
