I am disappointed... I could not go on with my tests envolving phoneME Advanced on iPhone due to iPhone SDK just runs on Mac OS X. Boring week, I bought an iPhone for that and someone thought everybody should have a Mac OS X to use it...

LWUIT is the way!

Posted by brunogh on May 18, 2008 at 5:49 PM PDT

Forget about what I have said previously, LWUIT (Lightweight UI Toolkit) is the way!

LWUIT was launched at JavaOne 2008 and there are already some nice tutorials and demos about it. I met some of the guys in the Pavillion and I was impressed with the lib, very cool!

J1 is awesome!

There is no word to describe what is JavaOne. If I take a try, I would say that is definitely awesome! It rocks! It is the best geek tourism ever!!!

The sessions are great, the speakers are great, the Pavillion is great, the communities, companies, people, all the information, flyers, talks, contests, chats, demos, videos, places, souvenirs, stuff, food, parties, pubs, dinners...

As it was announced before, Marge 0.5 is out. In this post, I am going to demonstrate an interesting new feature called AutoConnect. AutoConnect is indeed to automatically connect Bluetooth devices.

Anybody could explain me what is going on with Brazilian DTV?

Posted by brunogh on March 8, 2008 at 8:22 PM PST

Recently, I read Sun Microsystems And SBTVD Forum To Develop Open-Source Java Solution For Brazil's Digital TV System. Ok, looks like a nice news, but is there any reader that could explain me what is really going on?

I will try summarise my point of view, because I am not an expert on it.
