Cross-platform Apps with PhoneGap and JQuery

cross-platform-appsOne of the biggest challenges of developing a mobile applications is to port the apps to assorted platforms.

This can advance to all-encompassing development costs, and the charge for assorted skillsets internally in adjustment to advance the application.

This has led to the development of a amount of technologies that accommodate a cross-platform solution.

Arguably, the popular of these technologies is PhoneGap. The solution allows developers to actualize applications with a familiar tool set: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

When PhoneGap is combined with a mobile web development framework, it's possible to develop cross-platform mobile applications quickly. One of the most popular frameworks is jQuery Mobile due to its simplicity and native look and feel.

Why dinosaurs grew so large?

imageWhen actually declared extinct 65 million years ago due to a meteor strike that hit the earth, the dinosaurs left a mystery related to giant size. Now, researchers found one of the reasons behind the massive growth of the extinct animals.


As reported by the Daily Mail (12/6), researchers have discovered a fact in which the majority of ancient dinosaur blood have 'warm'.

'Warm' Circulatory system allows dinosaurs to grow larger without having to consume large amounts of food in a short time.


The study included 21 samples from various types of dinosaurs, such as predatory dinosaurs, long neck, until the bird dinosaurs. Not to forget other animals such as mammals, birds, fish, lizards, snakes, and crocodiles are also included for comparison.


Researchers then evaluated the metabolic processes of each species using a formula consisting of body weight, bone density, growing up to speed by the discovery of available fossils.


From the results of the researched data can be inferred if the dinosaurs are basically not included in the group of warm-blooded animals like humans and mammals, or cold-blooded animals like lizards and fish. Dinosaurs are considered to be in between the two, in other words, these giants have warm blood.


This theory is in line with the assumption of biologists from the University of New Mexico, John Grady, who said that if the dinosaurs did not have to warm-blooded or cold, but can be 'in the middle'. This also explains the existence of other species: giant white shark, turtle shell back, and tuna are known not warm-blooded or cold-blooded animals.

Google Nexus S and the iPhone will be Taken to Space by Atlantis

Nexus S vs iPhoneThe most recent Space Shuttle voyage will take Android alongside the two iPhones as soon as Atlantis launches on Friday, NASA said the day before. Two Google Nexus S phones will be taken to the International Space Station to inflate the features of SPHERES (Synchronized Position Hold, Engage, Reorient, Experimental Satellites), drones used to test spacecraft techniques and satellite maintenance.

The phones will produce the floating pods freedom to be controlled from the ground, cameras for a first-person view, and additional performance than they would cover on their own.

An upgrade will transform the devices into efficient servant robots for the crew, the Intelligent Robotics Group's DW Wheeler told CNET. Among the possibilities are scanning materials or looking for clear flaws. The goal is to ultimately keep ISS crew members paying attention on their missions and not on basic tasks.

The phones' installation is estimated to take place in September or October.

Carrying both of the two major American smartphone platforms can be symbolic for Atlantis. For many, Apple and Google at the same time represent the new forefront of US technology while the Space Shuttle is bowing out over 30 years after it too was the cutting edge. The iPhones and Nexus S phones are both being used to conduct experiments that wouldn't have been achievable on Earth or before modern smartphones.

Atlantis is scheduled to launch at 11:26AM Eastern and, appropriately, will have live streaming coverage optimized both for Android and iPhone viewers.
