Follow the $: Verizon iPhone != LTE

холови гарнитуриThe perennial Verizon iphone rumors keep ticking by, with speculation about contract dates, terms, projections, and the usual interview of some guy in line at the apple store who says “I’d switch today”. A recent thread seems to be in a lot of these stories: “Verizon iPhone will use LTE (4G)”. While I have ...

Maven, Tools.jar, and Macs

On the Mac, was using some maven build scripts (well, ANT wrapped in Maven) recently that had references to tools.jar. This is problematical on the mac, since Apple repackages tools.jar (some bits go in Classes.jar) and ironic since some of the classes are already available, so it’s an unecessary error.

New Macbook Pro

Got a new Macbook Pro (gotta add the pro at the end) at work, and have literally spent the whole day adding in all the stuff I “need” to make it my own development box. It’s amazing how much stuff you end up with that you quickly come to rely on. My short list seems ...

hPod to outsell iPod?

HP’s version of Apple Computer Inc.’s (AAPL.O: Quote, Profile, Research) wildly popular iPod digital music player has unofficially been dubbed the hPod, analysts said. The two companies earlier this year struck an agreement for HP to resell the iPod under the HP name, which will boost both companies’ exposure to consumer electronics markets. ‘The expectation ...
