We also discussed about Adobe’s decision to stop developing Flash on the iPhone and concentrate on other mobile platforms like Android, Symbian and WebOS. The unreleased iPhone was leaked recently and how Apple’s decision to use MicroSIM might affect us. Last but not least, the recruits in Tekong are getting netbook for their training. Talk about 3G army.

High-Level Analysis of iPhone OS 4.0 Multitasking Posted on: April 9, 2010 at 12:49 pm Posted in: Blog,Thoughts

iPhone OS 4.0

Apple recently announced iPhone OS 4.0 enabling “multitasking” of a sorts. I want to dig slightly deeper into understanding what they actually mean by this “multitasking”, without talking too much about the nitty gritty details.

There are 7 kinds of “services” they expose for multitasking:

  • Background Audio
  • Voice over IP
  • Background Location
  • Push Notifications
  • Local Notifications
  • Task Completion
  • Fast App Switching

Among all 7 “services” exposed, 6 of them are somewhat already available in the system itself, one way or another, with hidden APIs not exposed for public developer usage. Let’s take a look at each of them, and how they might “save battery” without “slowing down the system”.

65Bits #163: Web 2.0 Technology is not OneMap Posted on: April 8, 2010 at 2:53 pm Posted in: 65Bits,Podcasts

It’s post April Fool but the Tech65 crew are still in a joking mood. This week, we discuss about Fusion Garage which managed to get an impressive 90 pre-order for JooJoo. Microsoft decided to drop the word “Series” for Window Phone 7 after tons of complaints. SLA launched OneMap service which we will check it out again 1 year later.

Sorry for the ultra late post. Our hamster is sick.
