    trouble fitting it all in his schedule Which is disappointing removing two or three topics would have been better especially since there was a lot of overlap between some of them User Interface Design for instance explained all the different controls available and this was repeated again in the UIKit presentation What would have been better was explaining the concepts behind it in the first session and then actually implementing a sample application using the UIKit Model View Controller was also explained three times why not explain it once and show code the second time Knowing the theory behind it is good but actually showing us why some things are in place would have been better Did all this make it a useless event Certainly not if there is one in the future I hope I will be able to attend again and because this was the first time Apple organized something like this they probably still have to learn what content fits and what not And ow yeah catering was excellent Author BennyM Posted on 10 11 2008 Categories Software Development Tags apple iPhone techtalk Leave a comment on iPhone Tech Talk Amsterdam The iPhone has landed Last week through a series of events an iPhone ended up on my desk I was not planning on getting one since I really liked my HTC s710 But if I hated the new phone I could allways sell it on ebay and make a profit The phone has a very nice design everything just looks good The box it comes in the housing the screen it just breathes quality Now I m not going to write an in detail review about it but the most important improvement if I compare it to my previous phone is the web surfing No longer is the layout of any site screwed up you can zoom in and out on any site Turn the phone on its side and you get a panoramic view it s just amazing boom This is significantly better than on the htc but webmasters should still think about the footprint of their site on smartphones I read the news on the mobile version of tweakers and while I could use their normal version I still prefer the lighter one It loads faster has less graphical content just because the iPhone can display a full web page in all its glory doesn t mean you can forget people are using other devices to visit your site The Youtube integration is a cool feature as well I was able to get youtube content on my htc with vTap but no way near the sound and video quality I now have Sending mail nothing special here Except ofcourse the touchscreen enables the nice scrolling feature which you have in all iPhone applications There is integration with for instance google mail and you get imap integration if supported by the mail provider But I just stick to the regular pop3 Music playback the iPhone

    feature as well I was able to get youtube content on my htc with vTap but no way near the sound and video quality I now have Sending mail nothing special here Except ofcourse the touchscreen enables the nice scrolling feature which you have in all iPhone applications There is integration with for instance google mail and you get imap integration if supported by the mail provider But I just stick to the regular pop3 Music playback the iPhone is an iPod so you get all of the features they have and more Most notably is the coverflow which is a visual representation of your music albums So instead of moving through the folders on the disk you get more of a real life experience of going through your cd collection There is plenty more I could talk about but you ll be able to find all of it on the internet a good place to start is the Apple site So what s my advice on this new toy Great device it has a nice user interface is more stable than my Windows Mobile device doesn t hang as much as the htc but it isn t perfect There are improvements that should be taken care of for instance the keyboard doesn t follow the rotation of your iPhone in all applications Also I don t think the device is for everyone while I enjoy having my mails with me all the time and have the capability to go online everywhere anytime I m not Mr everyday consumer Most people will settle for a simple cell phone and MP3 player which you can both get for 1 4th of the price But hey don t listen to me you won t regret having the device and the Apple marketing

    comment on Vista OS X The iPhone has landed Last week through a series of events an iPhone ended up on my desk I was not planning on getting one since I really liked my HTC s710 But if I hated the new phone I could allways sell it on ebay and make a profit The phone has a very nice design everything just looks good The box it comes in the housing the screen it just breathes quality Now I m not going to write an in detail review about it but the most important improvement if I compare it to my previous phone is the web surfing No longer is the layout of any site screwed up you can zoom in and out on any site Turn the phone on its side and you get a panoramic view it s just amazing boom This is significantly better than on the htc but webmasters should still think about the footprint of their site on smartphones I read the news on the mobile version of tweakers and while I could use their normal version I still prefer the lighter one It loads faster has less graphical content just because the iPhone can display a full web page in all its glory doesn t mean you can forget people are using other devices to visit your site The Youtube integration is a cool feature as well I was able to get youtube content on my htc with vTap but no way near the sound and video quality I now have Sending mail nothing special here Except ofcourse the touchscreen enables the nice scrolling feature which you have in all iPhone applications There is integration with for instance google mail and you get imap integration if supported by the mail provider But I just stick to the regular pop3 Music playback the iPhone is an iPod so you get all of the features they have and more Most notably is the coverflow which is a visual representation of your music albums So instead of moving through the folders on the disk you get more of a real life experience of going through your cd collection There is plenty more I could talk about but you ll be able to find all of it on the internet a good place to start is the Apple site So what s my advice on this new toy Great device it has a nice user interface is more stable than my Windows Mobile device doesn t hang as much as the htc but it isn t perfect There are improvements that should be taken care of for instance the keyboard doesn t follow the rotation of your iPhone in all applications Also I don t think the device is for everyone while I enjoy having my mails with me all the time and have the capability to go online everywhere anytime I m not Mr everyday consumer Most people will settle for a simple cell phone

    Server since this one is based on a proprietary Apple protocol it works great in iTunes Your collection is recognized as a shared iTunes library so you can choose what you want to hear in the same way you do when the mp3 s would be stored locally The downside of this is that I can t run this in my media center and that I need iTunes on my other windows machines Also if I d want to play music on a stereo I d need to keep a PC running since the server can t stream directly to AirTunes The third one I tried was TwonkyMedia installation was no problem but I couldn t connect with any player and the posts on their forum didn t seem that promissing customers who don t get support is no good advertisement The server however is based on the UPnP protocol which is kind of the standard in the industry WMP 11 can connect to such a server as can the Playstation 3 and a lot of other players Searching for UPnP servers led me to TVersity which blew me away I can connect with my iPhone my Vista Media Center WMP any browser It s much more than just an audio server I suggest you look at their website and try it out The only downside iTunes doesn t support UPnP So far my search for a media server I haven t decided which way to go Author BennyM Posted on 17 12 2008 Categories Computer Music Tags firefly mediaserver mp3 squeezecenter tversity Leave a comment on In search of a mediaserver Once Upon a Time in the West No Clint Eastwood this time but Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson are more than adequate Once again set to the tunes
