I also installed the WordPress app on my iPhone. The layout is slightly better. But, I prefer the larger HTC Titan screen. I wish the iPhone keyboard showed the current typing case like the Android and Windows phones do.

Automatically remove an old / expired iOS distribution enterprise provisioning profile

Posted on May 31, 2013 by

As we build out apps in our enterprise app market, we find that old provisioning profiles linger out on user’s iOS devices. It is a small problem because users get the pop up notification that a provisioning profile is about to expire. Then they either click remind me, or show me. With show me, it jumps the user to settings and then provisioning. It is a nuisance, because users do not understand the significance and could potentially wipe out a good one.

There must be a way an app can replace its own. $20 is riding on the answer!

Next Google Chrome (version 28) will use Blink

Posted on May 23, 2013 by

I did not know this until today as I was updating the Google Chrome browsers to version 27 on the stage web servers.

 The next version of Chrome (28) will use Blink, a fork of WebKit that was announced early in May.

 This is a report from Google I/O

 I am wondering how much this might affect cross platform applications.

Palomino Pencil Tests

Palomino Pencil Tests

I just received the shipment of the new California Republic Palomino Blackwing Pearl pencils. I had to try them out and compare to others I have. I have been pleased with the soft black writing of the Palomino premium pencils. I was a pen person, until I read the article in the Boston Globe about the new Blackwing, and also what the Eberhard Faber Blackwing 602 was about.

I have purchased a wide variety of wood-cased pencils since September 2011 and used them. I have been working on my drawing skills. Also, I have brought them to work to make note-taking more fun.

 

Useful free .NET dll decompiler

I just used this to look at a deployed project .NET DLL to verify a code change had been made. Very useful on a straight DLL not in a project. It can be unzipped into a directory and run from there.
