A developer’s perspective on some of the differences between the two mobile OSes. I admit I’ve never looked at Android programming (Java gives me hives), but the description of “intents”—sort of a pre-baked event notification system that any application can hook listeners into—is really intriguing.
Also, Android has a declarative UI system: basically, you’re defining a UI layout in relative terms similar to the way you might a web page. Current versions of Nokia’s Qt do this with “QML,” which I used on my last project there. This trades pixel-level precision layouts for layouts that aren’t so sensitive to differing device resolutions.
Here are the annual prices of a variety of services, all of which allow users to access the service from the web and across multiple devices with a single unified subscription. See if you can pick out which one is the outlier:
The locksmith called 911. Police arrived and the locksmith met them outside to give his side of the story. I came to the outside door and the officer told me to pay the man. I said “But - ” and the officer interrupted me. “Pay the man now or you’re under arrest.”
“you dont have to like it, but you have to respect it. everyone is so stuck inside of that first album box, that it blinds them when they release new music. for instance, i fucking hate Recovery. Eminem is my favorite rapper. but i respect the project because of where he is in his life. and seriously, i dont want to hear a slim shady LP 10 years later. Progression is a really important part in a carrer. anyone who has success has moved foward. for instance, 50 talks about the same shit. wait, let me rephrase that, 50 wants to make shit like get rih or die trying again, forcing some shit, where mentally thats not where he’s at, and his fans are like WTF? thats why mussiclly no one fucks with him like that anymore. if you want that college drop out shit, go listen to that. kanye isnt there anymore. people say he;s changed. no fucking shit. im 19 right now, i can gurantee i will not be talking about the same shit at 27 that i was talkign about at 19. its called Growing. xswag”—tyler, the creator, on kanye west’s latest album.
ridiculous. the notion that cleaner code and ease of programming should take precedence over total freedom to specify ones own gender is some stupid shit. the product isn’t the code, the product is the product.
