Microsoft rät indirekt vom Office-2019-Kauf ab | heise online
Microsoft essaye de vous décourager d’acheter Office 2019 - afin de vous vendre Office 365 . La raison est évidente : Pour Office 2019 vous ne payez qu’une seule fois alors que pour Office 365 vous payez tous les ans. Les arguments ressemblent ceux des vendeurs d’automobiles et n’ont d’intérêt que pour les utilisateurs les plus dépendants et les moins flexibles.
On se demande pourquoi quelqu’un voudrit encores utiliser un MS-Office payant en dehors des grandes entreprises qui obligent leurs employés à apprendre l’utilisation du monstre. Après tout il y a

A journey from #android development to #ios development in 2018 — Kotlin and Swift
A journey from android development to iOS development in 2018 — The Bright ThingsBack in 2014 I started my career as android application developer, I worked on many projects including core android apps which required deep knowledge of android SDKs and also NDK. Other than that I also worked on IOT projects which included connecting with external and on-device sensors.I enjoy being challenged and engaging with projects that require me to work outside my comfort and knowledge set, therefore I started looking into iOS development later in 2017. Knowing the mobile eco-system, it wasn’t much difficult for me to getting along and thanks to the sister languages, kotlin and swift, there was almost zero effort to work on swift.TL;DRFrom Android to iOS development — highlighting the better thingsRoot (...)

Streaming service for premium #Mobile games coming to Android phones and set-top boxes in the East
Consider #grpc for Mobile APIs
Evaluating gRPC Request-Response, Authentication, and StreaminggRPC is an open source remote procedure call (RPC) framework that runs across many different client and server platforms. It commonly uses protocol buffers (protobufs) to efficiently serialize structured data for communication, and it is used extensively in distributed and microservice-based systems.According to grpc.io, gRPC and Protobuf provide an easy way to precisely define a service and auto generate reliable client libraries for iOS, Android, and the servers providing the back end. The clients can take advantage of advanced streaming and connection features which help save bandwidth, do more over fewer TCP connections and save CPU usage and battery life.Sounds promising, we’ll run through a few beginning scenarios to (...)

Exclusive: Google Caught Hosting Hezbollah’s Violent Android Games
Holy Defence looks like your typical shoot ’em up. The Android game sees the protagonist running around a carbon copy of the Sayyeda Zeinab mosque in Damascus, defending it from invaders with automatic weapons. More than 10,000 people have downloaded the game from the Google Play store, and it’s received plenty of praise from reviewers.
Little is disclosed about the game on Google’s site. But Forbes can reveal the developer behind Holy Defence and one other Google-hosted title, in which child characters deflect bombs onto Israeli soldiers, has a hidden motive: to disseminate Hezbollah propaganda.
Deemed by the U.S. government a terrorist organization, Hezbollah has, ironically, in recent years used American online platforms to spread its message. Holy Defence for Android represents its first foray into the mobile space and the first known case in which a game developed by any listed terror group has been spotted on Google’s marketplace for apps.
Not only do the smartphone games represent a new weapon in Hezbollah’s information wars against its myriad enemies, they also bring into focus a case where one of the world’s biggest private companies has to decide: Is Hezbollah a terror group or a political body as it claims?
“Just as they’ve become in business, in war, games are serious," says Pete Singer, senior fellow at think tank New America and author of LikeWar: The Weaponization Of Social Media. And, he says, Google now finds itself as the arbiter of what is and what isn’t acceptable.
Open source describes software where the source code is available for anyone to view, use, change, and then share. Making source code publicly available allows others to build on and learn from it, enabling broad collaboration from people around the world.
It’s in your phone, your car, your TV, and your wifi-connected light bulbs. Open source components enable engineers to build on the work of a global community of developers to deliver better products faster and at lower cost. Linux, the Apache web server, Android, Firefox, and WordPress are examples of open source projects you may have heard of.

Finding Area by Integrating Google Maps SDK in #android

It uses Google Maps to load the location and then with some customization, the user is able to mark the (...)
