Alex, thanks for the iPad App. Is there any similar App for Android based Smartphones and tablets. I think most of the non US members are using Android/windows based devices and if you are able to come up any similar apps for such devices are helpful.
DesignerMan, I do actually understand and support your point. However you do undercut your "different strokes for different folks" with the muttered "over-rated iPad" comment, no? DN already has a very nice standard website - I'm surprised you're not accessing that now.
Veering back briefly on topic, congratulations, DN, the new app looks great!
Now come-on..be nice.Different strokes for different folks. At the risk of going off topic the PlayBook has got an undeserved bad rap. It's got the fastest browser in the tablet world and most of the initial issues upon launch are behind it with the latest OS update.The original iPad had a number of major issues you may recall.
My point was that HTML5 type sites/apps work cross-platform for EVERYONE, whether users of Apple, Windows, Android, BlackBerry or anything else. They are like having your cake and eating it too!
As opposed to focussing on and wedding DesignNews to a particular (overrated) platform, an HTML5 tablet optimsed site that could be deployed similar to an app on multiple platforms seemlessly would be preferred. That way BlackBerry PlayBook and Android users would be brought into the fold and you would be future protected.
Looks like the big advantage is the ability to see a feature article as it's shown here (as a spread), as opposed to the way feature articles now appear on our website. For those who like to read the longer feature articles, this should be a big step up.
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
