  • Blog Post: Windows Phone 7 – XNA

    Hi… jetzt kann man ja immer daher schwadronieren, wie einfach etwas ist und es bleibt eine Hochglanzwerbeaussage, solange man es nicht selbst ausprobiert hat. Also habe ich mich mal an Windows Phone 7 und XNA herangewagt. Meine Idee war es, ein sehr erfolgreiches Demo aus einer Webcast-Serie von vor...
  • Blog Post: Teenager schafft Ruby Performance Boost… cool und peinlich

    Hi… ich habe das hier gefunden http://yokolet.blogspot.com/2009/11/japanese-teenage-boy-improved-ruby-19.html und es ist ja total cool was japanische Teenager schon so alles hinbekommen. Gratulation und Respekt. Eigentlich aber wieder eher ernüchternd… Der Kollege fand einige Macros, die in wesentlichen...
  • Blog Post: Überprüfung auf Korrektheit: Wie eine Problemstellung aus der theoretischen Informatik die Welt verändern kann

    Hi… ich habe vor Jahren in einem Projekt mitgearbeitet bei dem es um eine Überprüfung der Funktion von Software ging. In meinem Falle ging es um die Genehmigung Kernkraftwerke steuern zu dürfen. Klingt erstmal dramatisch, ist aber technisch nicht so kompliziert wie zum Beispiel ein Flugzeug. Wenn die...
  • Blog Post: Cloud Computing-Der Spiegel, FTD und why IT doesn’t matter

    Hi… (this time in German) In der FTD von Freitag konnte man unter „Heiter bis wolkig“ (S.30) ein Zitat von Richard Stallmann lesen „Cloud Computing ist Dummheit. Es ist eine Marketing-Hype-Kampagne“. Ich verkneife mir hier mal zu wiederholen was die Mehrheit der IT Branche von Stallmann und seinen Statements...
  • Blog Post: Untold Tales of Windows

    Hi… recently I had a discussion with students around computer science. Suddenly I became aware: There are some untold tales of Windows. Maybe I should start to do something about it;-) The Tale of the OS Builder Let us assume for a moment we are designers of an operating system. Our operating system...
  • Blog Post: Cloud Computing versus Hosts

    Hi… I found an article – actually I have seen lots of those in the past few weeks – which compares hosts to what cloud computing is about today. Mostly the conclusion is “see, we already had that all and we should never have left host computing in the first place”. Well, this is true and wrong at the...
  • Blog Post: When Microsoft started…

    Hi…   this is a cool video series about the history of Microsoft… http://channel9.msdn.com/shows/History/The-History-of-Microsoft-1975/ Now I learned why BASIC starts to print out OK instead of READY when it actually is Ready. Because it saves 3 bytes ;-) Respect, Tina Wood, you are doing a great...
  • Blog Post: Windows 7 – Loved Features #1: Mathematics

    Hi… ok, I studied Physics and as you can imagine all of my homeworks were full of formulas and stuff. I did it with LaTeX… Now here is Windows 7 and it comes with a killer feature: Math Entry Pad By using my TabletPC I have written this formula above. Then pressed Enter and voila… …it came to live in...

  • Blog Post: The Dynamic of Dynamic Languages

    Hi... I did a talk on Dynamic Languages yesterday during the German launch event in Frankfurt. The room was crowded which shows me that there is a huge interest in this topic... (that one was easy ;-) I got a lot of feedback (thanks) and wanted to react on some of it. First I showed a few demos which...
  • Blog Post: What a platform for next web has to deliver...

    Hi... I am currently in Neuss at an HP event. HP is a sponsor of our MTC and the event is all about the HP EVA program. That means: Storage, more storage, terra bytes, peta bytes...lots. I was talking to one of the HP guys who is involved in the development of the product line. He was talking about the...
  • Blog Post: Everybody can be Part of the Media Selling Industry

    Hi... this paper might contain some explosives: ftp://ftp.research.microsoft.com/pub/tr/TR-2007-167.pdf The basic idea is "The platform aims to enable selling digital content by any- one, anywhere, and anytime"... ??? The system works by having two trusted devices (players) which can exchange media content...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft Live Labs - Volta

    Hi... ok, I must admit it took me quite a while to get it. After reading the documentation I found THE sentences to define it in a few words right on the landing page: The Volta technology preview is a developer toolset that enables you to build multi-tier web applications by applying familiar techniques...
  • Blog Post: Bell's Law...

    Hi... I found a nice paper by MSR here ftp://ftp.research.microsoft.com/pub/tr/TR-2007-146.pdf . It is about Bell's law of the life cycle of computer classes. Gordon Bell tries to find some kind of rules behind the development hardware has done over the past 50 years. One statement really caught my attention...
  • Blog Post: Sorry, no Schadenfreude allowed!!

    Hi... in my last posting I was bit harsh to Apple because of the security of its iPhone. OK, now I learned that they even block out 3rd party software. If you try to mess around with it, it will simply block itself for ever. Anyway, this is not on me to comment... think about the guy using a three year...
  • Blog Post: Transistors switching light...

    Hi... researchers made a "transistor" able to use a single photon (input) to amplify a stream of light (output). This sounds like nothing special first but it could open the door for faster and less power consuming computers. http://spectrum.ieee.org/aug07/5497 CU 0xff
  • Blog Post: Know your AJAX with AJAX View

    Hi... since I just been luring around a bit and searched through MS Research papers... there is an interesting project called AJAX View. The idea is to observe and measure the behaviour of AJAX applications in the wild. To do so a proxy is installed between web server output and what is actually delivered...
  • Blog Post: AJAX - Divide and conquer

    Hi... I found a nice paper by MSR ( ftp://ftp.research.microsoft.com/pub/tr/TR-2007-101.pdf ) talking about code splitting. Todays AJAX applications tend to get thicker than most of us might expect. Sizes of more than one megabyte is getting normal and all the sudden network bandwidth is back on stage...
  • Blog Post: WMI in Action...

    Hi... Sometimes I do wonder why we are not using our own stuff. Want an example? Here we go: When we started to show what was called Longhorn that time (what is now called Windows Vista) customers tend to ask about hardware requirements. Well, we had some typical answers for that and as long as you know...
  • Blog Post: Search Engines

    Hi... I just found an article on problems regarding relevancy in search results and how it is resolved (see http://www.channelpartner.de/news/245588/index.html in German). As widely known relevancy of pages are measured by counting the number of references to that page and - flattened by a little multiplier...

  • Blog Post: Welcome to the new world of development...

    Hi... when I started developing software it was all about saving memory and processor cycles. Ladies and Gentlemen, this changed dramatically... I am in the process of learning Ruby. Since I do this in little steps (10 minutes here, 15 minutes there) I do my little adavances. And it has shown me a lot...
