A study of the iPhone UI and rebuilding it in AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime)
using Adobe Flex 3. AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) is a cross-operating
system runtime that allows developers to use their existing web development
skills to build and deploy Rich Internet Applications to the desktop. With
the WebControl component in AIR which is powered by WebKit it will allow you
to build and test iPhone Applications. Also, I will be showing a component
that will give the ability to make and receive calls, record/send and receive
voicemail, as well as add and manage contacts.

of Product Management John Robb (pictured) answered some of our questions...

By now there isn't a software developer on earth who isn't aware of the
collection of programming technologies known as AJAX. But you can't bank
awareness. Which is why developers from all over the world are converging
today from 07:00AM in New York City's Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times
Square to live and breathe AJAX at the inaugural "Real-World AJAX" Seminar.
The top-line speakers are: Jesse James Garrett, David Heinemeier Hansson,
Scott Dietzen, Ross Dargahi, Bill Scott, Christophe Coenraets, Rob Gonda,
Dave Crane, Jouk Pleiter, Kevin Hakman, Sahil Malik, and Dion Hinchcliffe.
SYS-CON's "Real-World AJAX" seminar series aims to answer several questions:
how in concrete terms can developers take advantage in their own projects of
this newly popular way of delivering online content to users without
reloading an entire page? How soon can developers be monetizing AJAX... (more)
In this article, which focuses on the impact of Ajax on mobile application
development only (i.e. he does not discuss Ajax in general), SOA Web Services
Edge speaker Ajit Jaokar contends that - since his e-mail, calendar and other
applications are on the web, and he can store all my documents on the web,
all he needs is a browser. "One client to rule them all! Thus, today I would
use a ‘browser-only PC’," he adds.
Earlier this year, I published an article called AJAX for Mobile Devices Will
Be the Hallmark of "Mobile Web 2.0" in 2006.
It created quite a stir .. and I am thankful for all the feedback.
Specifically, I would like to thank C Enrique Oritiz , Thomas Landspurg ,
Paul Golding and Jan Standal (Opera) for their feedback.
Special thanks go to Paul Golding for brainstorming some of the ideas in this
article with me.
I did not intend to write a follo... (more)

View on SYS.CON.TV: Real-World AJAX San Jose "AJAX Power Panel"
Not since the formation of NATO in 1945 have four letters been combined to
such globe-spanning effect, nor has any 4-letter acronym since then been the
subject of such hyperbole. (Quod erat demonstrandum.)
I refer of course to "AJAX."
What is it about AJAX that sets it apart from other programming acronyms and
approaches? SYS-CON Media's AjaxWorld Magazine asked a number of its most
active and industry-engaged contributors to offer their thoughts. Here are
BILL SCOTT, an Interaction Designer and AJAX Evangelist at Yahoo! has no
doubt what makes AJAX so special. "Since the 80s, the desktop application
world has had a rich a set of user interaction idioms and ways to get at

Red Hat Wednesday pushed out Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL 5), the first
major update of its operating system in a couple of years, a rev on which
much hangs considering the threatening noises coming from the direction of
Oracle, Sun, Microsoft-Novell and Ubuntu.
That being so we're supposed to understand RHEL 5 as being more grandiose
than just simply a next release, Red Hat said. More "next generation" and
it's segmented the operating system and packaged up some new services to
expand its reach and tickle its revenue base. Its goal is ubiquity.
At the introduction, Red Hat head of engineering Paul Cormier suggested
Microsoft spent a half a billion dollars rolling out Vista only for it to
fall flat in the marketplace.
The main addition to the widgetry is the integration of Xen, the open source
virtualization technology that already appears in Novell's SUSE distrib... (more)
