iPhone Endowed Life Begins

img_2569

I’ve finally pitched my brilliantly ancient Blackberry (deserves an award for surviving this long). I decided the only way for me to go was to get an iPhone. It’s now been nearly a week and I must say this platform is a must have for any computery geeky types out there. It makes me antiquated Pocket PC cower in submissive fear and continues to impress and delight me a every turn.

When iPhone was first released I shyed away on account of two factors. First I thought the price was completely unreasonable, that’s long since been fixed. Secondly, I felt it to be too cruel for Apple to provide such an awesome platform, but lock it up with no public development tools. That too, has now long since been addressed quite masterfully.

I’ve been watching a through set of introductory development videos for iPhone this morning and they’ve been quite informative. Apple has clearly got their head’s in the right space to provide an outstanding mobile device that offers a carefully designed balance of functionality, stability, entertainment and room for customization.

So at this point, if you don’t have an iPhone or at least an ipod Touch and you like playing around with embedded systems of any kind, I HIGHLY recommend you take a very careful look at this platform. Apple’s massively well presented documentation can help get you far long in developing your own tools as well, so check them out. Also, check out all the apps floating around in the iTunes store.

Dawning.ca Server Relocated

Howdy friends, after some down time, I’ve moved the dawning.ca server on to a new web server I’ve configured. I had moved it over to a Linode VM for awhile, but in trying to cut down my personal costs, I’ve since migrated it back home. Anyway, I quite enjoyed using Linode for awhile and if you’re interested in having a decent remotely hosted Virtual Machine, I’d highly recommend them.
