Sweet!

So, this is like your prototype?  (reminds me, I have a question for you making a new phone widget, but I'll throw it in another thread.)

Yep.  I've been writing apps for cellphones for a few years, but they've been puny, personal types of apps.  When Google released their mobile platform, I wanted to tackle something bigger.

Augmented Reality/Space is going to be a huge shift, and it's only a matter of time (next-gen phones/gps devices and WiMax or whatever emerges from the 700 MHz spectrum)


Here's a couple of good articles:

Real and virtual worlds - Better together
http://www.economist.com/...ory.cfm?story_id=10251972
Quote
    The next step is to call up information about your surroundings using mobile devices—something that is starting to become possible. Beyond that, “augmented reality” technology blends virtual objects seamlessly into views of the real world, making it possible to compare real buildings with their virtual blueprints, or tag real-world locations with virtual messages.

    All these approaches treat the internet as an overlay or an adjunct to the physical world, not a separate space. Rather than seeing the real and virtual realms as distinct and conflicting, in short, it makes sense to see them as complementary and connected. The resulting fusion is not what the Utopians or the critics foresaw, but it suits the rest of us just fine.



Intel predicts the personal net
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7176177.stm
Quote
     Speaking at the Consumer Electronics Show, Paul Otellini predicted mobile devices could soon “augment reality” by pulling data from the net in real time.

    He said the industry was on the verge of creating a “new level of capability and usefulness to the internet”.

    “It’s an internet that is proactive, predictive and context-aware.”

    Explaining that devices would be location-aware, and would access the internet over Wimax wireless connections, he said: “Instead of going to the internet, the internet comes to us.

    “We need a ubiquitous, wireless broadband infrastructure. Eventually we will blanket the globe in wireless broadband connectivity.”



Otellini!

Dystopia writes much cooler software than Uisce.   Sad

*goshdarn* B2B anyway.

Otellini!

I read that same article in the paper today. I also saw a report from CES, and apparently Yahoo! announced a mobile development platform to compete with Android. Supposedly, their platform will allow developers to target billions of mobile users right out of the gate whereas Android will initially be installed on just 1 million units.

I'm sort of in wait-and-see mode with Yahoo's mobile move.  I've seen some really cool skunkworks stuff from them, but the stuff that actually sees the light hasn't been that great.  My friends who work there say it's chaotic internally there right now with terrible direction and focus.  I got more of a "me too" vibe from their mobile announcement rather than sensing any real sort of innovation.

Still, I expect to do a 'Go 3.0'-based app down the road as a way to evaluate it, same as I'll do with the iPhone SDK in February.  I'm kind of a ronin, I don't really care which platform I'm working on.

I took a quick look through the API demos, and there doesn't appear to be any facility for making calls to web services. Is there some equivalent to the XMLHttpRequest object in JavaScript? It seems like most Android apps would need to request data from outside sources rather than using a local data store.

I'll check it out. I'm surprised that there isn't a class native to the Android SDK though.
