France represents 1% of the population of the planet and it circulates more than 1,000 models of mobile phones with screens, keyboards and different designs. Ditto for user interfaces driven by Windows Mobile, Symbian or Blackberry but also proprietary software operators.
Any new application on the mobile Internet must be compatible with as many of these phones. It’s impossible mission … One solution is to download a Java application on a mobile phone but it works less than once in ten. This explains incredible complexity we only use 10% and 20% of the capabilities of our phones …
Spurred on by Google and Apple, interfaces should be standardized around sytems finished better and easier to use. This recalls the beginnings of the PC-compatible “20 years ago where a certain Bill Gates and Steve Jobs have a su catalyzed the few interfaces we have today.
Even in the Ile de France, dense area par excellence, the shadows (where the networks are not easily accessible or inaccessible) are numerous. It is often muted. To have good communication, the only solution is the fixed telephone and data connections for PC Internet connection.
Personally, I wish that my favorite operator is dedicated to providing a better network coverage on my laptop, I will increase my intake of all traffic. At a time when the boundaries between content production, content delivery, communication, editor software, the Internet is blurring operator, is the core business of mobile operators?
How Could a 9 Years Old Kid Develops iPhone Apps?
The application is very reminiscent of an old toy, called “Magic Trace” (remembered only by those over 25 years) because it allows iPhone users to draw with your fingers directly on the handset screen. To clear the picture, just shake your phone. Lim said he developed the program for their younger sisters, who love to draw.
He still says six familiar with programming languages (I particularly badly learned two … hehehe). He started using computer at 2 years old and already collects about 20 programming projects.
The boy’s father, Lim Thye Chean, a vice president of technology for a local company, also makes programs for the iPhone. “Every night we check the statistics submitted to us by email through iTunes, to see who has more downloads,” said the father.
The boy, who likes to read programming books, is already working on other software for the iPhone, a game called “Invader Wars.”
