RIAs at the Enterprise Level

Posted by | June 18, 2009 .

The penetration of RIAs into the consumer world is beyond doubt. We have numbers supporting that time and again. To that extent, RIAs are here to stay. However, I sometimes wonder the scenario when it comes to enterprise apps. Let us exclude AJAX for the sake of discussion because most GUIs these days are being […]

Did the Google I/O 2009 Spoil the Microsoft Bing Day?

Posted by | May 29, 2009 .

Google I/O is a developer gathering focused on pushing the boundaries of web applications using Google and open web technologies. This year’s two-day conference appears to have completely overshadowed the Microsoft Bing Day. There must have been two binge parties in both the camps last night for entirely different reasons.

Posted by | March 23, 2009 .

Has anyone even tried downloading the final release of Internet Explorer 8? If yes, for how long and what do you think? I tried using IE8 RC1 when it was released. The latest is a very superior version with many new features, but I somehow can’t remember to use IE nor can I force myself […]

Back from vacation everybody? My work has piled up so much that I am dreaming about a magic charm during the winks I am able to manage. Not all took a vacation apparently. Some hardworking people leaked Windows 7 Demo and phished Twitter while we were away. Good for Microsoft and Twitter, don’t you think? […]

Adobe AIR 1.5 on Air

Posted by | November 20, 2008 .

Adobe released AIR 1.5 a couple of days ago during the MAX conference. This is in line with people’s expectations as being one of the interesting revelations. But I almost missed it until Adobe pushed an update notification to my laptop recently. Dan Orlando must be relieved. Almost a month ago, he accidentally let out some […]

Java + MXML + AJAX = ZK, Sun Should have Done This

Posted by | November 11, 2008 .

If you haven’t done this, it’s time now go check out ZK, a open source AJAX RIA development environment/tool/framework, which is Java driven and claims to be Direct RIA solution. Flex developers, be aware. The smart people behind ZK seem to me have done everything right. Here are the reasons I come to think of: […]

A New Hope For Google Visualization API

Posted by | November 6, 2008 .

When the Google AJAX Search team first introduced the Google Visualization API early this year in a hope to reshape the future of online data visualization, it was met with a lukewarm response. Not because it wasn’t good, but because data could only be used from Google Spreadsheets. Not any more. Google announced a couple […]

Posted by | October 30, 2008 .

Everybody knows that there is a lot more Flash than AJAX on the web. But how much exactly is that “more”? MAMA aka Metadata Analysis and Mining Application, is a structural web-page search engine that trawls the web for various details. Key findings of MAMA’s crawlings have recently been posted on the Dev Opera community […]
