Mobile Advertising Takes Us Back in the ’90s

Posted by & filed under , , .

I have to get this off my chest as it’s been bugging me for a while and just been reminded this morning of this issue so had to pick up the keyboard and blog (moan?) about it. I’m not the biggest mobile user — arguably! — however, like most people out there I find myself […]

Of Twitter and Mobile

Posted by & filed under , , .

I use Twitter a lot (see for yourself here if you don’t believe me 🙂 ) — and as such it annoys me terribly when I see companies using it the wrong way. And by “wrong way” I’m not talking about the contents of their tweets — it’s a free world and everyone has the […]

evernote

Product Idea: Evernote and Calendar

Posted by & filed under , , .

This is something that I have discovered recently and it’s sort of bugging me — though I accept that this might be mainly to the (wrong) way I use certain applications. However, I still think this would be a cool thing to have. Hence this post 🙂 I know by now, by the way, that […]

J2ME: Scale an Image to Fit the Screen Size

Posted by & filed under , .

It’s more and more common with the new generation of mobiles nowadays to have a megapixel camera built in the mobile itself. And with that comes the fact that if you ever want to allow your user to select one of the images s/he has captured with this camera (see above) you are dealing with […]

J2ME: Read an Image from the Device Filesystem

Posted by & filed under , .

As you’ve seen with previous posts, I’m trying to make sure that all the stuff that used to be on my old website and people are still looking for is being brought back to light; and one of the search terms that I see redirecting people to my website is “j2me read file” — for […]

J2ME Convertor Application

Posted by & filed under , .

Yet another resurrected (old) J2ME application from my old website. I couldn’t actually find the original page for this, just the zip file with all the sources for this and the compiled version.So you might have to figure this one by yourself I’m afraid! If (and that is a big “if” at the moment unfortunately!) […]

J2ME StopWatch Application

Posted by & filed under , .

This is another resurrect from my old website — again, it seems people are visiting my site looking for this (old) J2ME application. Please be aware that I haven’t updated this application in ages — it was known to run last time I checked, but that was a while back. I suspect as such it’s […]

Bandwidth – reloaded

Posted by & filed under , .

I’ve posted before about bandwidth in my posts and I knew from the beginning that it’s one of those issues that you can never exhaust. As it happens recently I came across another interesting thing which is probably worth sharing: cross browser delivery. In brief, it means delivering to each browser the content it can […]

Developing for mobile platforms

Posted by & filed under .

It’s been a while since I last looked at developing apps for mobile platforms. Some of you who looked through the technical section of my website are probably familiar by now with the convertor app (which even to my surprise proved very popular!), and probably noticed that haven’t done anything about it in ages. Well […]

QR/Barcode for mobiles

Posted by & filed under , .

Here’s a cool little web utility for designing your own barcode image for mobiles: http://qrcode.es/?page_id=90&language=en Simply type in the text and the scan the generated image using your mobile barcode scanner. And to test it, here’s one that I have put together using it — scan it and you’ll get something cool 😉

J2ME and GPRS Connections

Posted by & filed under , , .

I liked from the beginning the idea of mobile and embedded programming so I spent a lot of time on mobile and embedded programming (see the mobile section on my website). More specifically, I spent a lot of time doing J2ME stuff. Recently, as a lot of you might know, there is a new API […]
