Android · I’m hav­ing a lit­tle trou­ble un­der­stand­ing An­droid; the busi­ness side I mean, not the tech­nol­o­gy ...
Kindle PR · As re­gards the pro­duc­t, I have noth­ing to add to Mark Pilgrim’s The Fu­ture of Read­ing (A Play in Six Act­s). But the big meta-news sto­ry here is: PR Tri­umph. The pro­duc­t, it’s Yet Another E-Book Read­er. It got on the front cov­er of Newsweek and was fea­tured by more or less ev­ery­one in the mainstream-media tech­nol­o­gy beat. It bloody well got on­to the front page of my home­town Van­cou­ver Sun. Maybe the prod­uct will soar, maybe it’ll flop. But this is ob­vi­ous­ly the crown­ing PR achieve­ment of our young cen­tu­ry. I bow my head in awe.
Ruby Tool Survey · At Sun, I’m in the Devel­op­er Tools group. Some­one asked “Which tools does the Ru­by gang use, anyhow?” I said “Hmm, Tex­tMate, Emac­s, Vi, re­cent­ly some Eclipse and NetBeans.” They said “How do you know?” I said “Uh.” They said “Why don’t you ask?” So I did. Here’s the write-up, in an­oth­er frag­men­t, which is more commenter-friendly I think.
