Samsung Galaxy S II
Keith Strickland    

As an early christmas present my wife got me a new Samsung Galaxy S II from T-Mobile. This is by far the best gadget I've ever owned. My initial impression is WOW! It's very fast, much faster than my old myTouch or the LG that replaced the myTouch when it started over-heating.

The T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S II is a little different than the stock Galaxy S II. It sports a 1.5 GHZ Dual Core Processor (as opposed to a 1.2 GHZ Dual Core), a huge 4.5" Super AMOLED screen (as opposed to a 4.3" screen) with Gorilla Glass and a very slim, light case (it's lighter than my LG which is smaller) and a 1850mah battery (as opposed to 1650mah). The battery life so far is ok, not great it was useful for about 8 hours, which I guess is about the norm for android phones, at least the ones I've owned. It also sports an 8 MP camera on the back with an led flash and a 2 MP front facing camera.

The UI is great, it's using the Samsung TouchWiz 4.0 launcher. It's a very smooth UI and totally customizable. It comes with the Swype keyboard and a samsung keyboard which is very close to the Android Ice Cream Sandwich keyboard. It's running Android 2.3.5 but will hopefully be updated to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). 

So hopefully I'll get a lot of use out of this phone and it'll last the whole two years that we re-signed the contract for. We've been very happy with T-Mobile and have no plans of switching carriers as you can't find better customer service from a cell phone company. But if you're in the market for a new phone, take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S2, you won't be disappointed.

XMage, your XPrentice will surely miss you

I am truly saddened and devastated by the news I received today of the death of Tim Tripcony. I would like to express my heartfelt condolences and sympathy to Tim's family and friends. I would also like to explain how Tim helped change both my personal and professional life. The loss of Tim has already left me feeling a rather large empty space where he once stood. Before I was hired at GBS I learned a lot from Tim's blog and the few chat sessions I had with him. I had never met him [read] Keywords: xpages development

My first impressions of using Titanium Appcelerator
Sun, Dec 8th 2013 11:48a   Keith Strickland
A couple of weeks ago I started messing with Titanium Appcelerator. Coming from Domino Designer and Eclipse the IDE will look very familiar. It's eclipse and it's based off of Aptana Studio. I guess the biggest issue to being productive is the learning curve for the API. But honestly when is that not the case? So starting to delve into this, Titanium apps are purely client side javascript based. You write the CSJS that builds the UI, Business Logic, Layout, everything. While this may [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes notes client application dojo eclipse iphone javascript mobile oop openntf wiki

2 Days with Domino 9.0.1 Mobile Controls - And I'm not happy
Wed, Oct 30th 2013 1:42p   Keith Strickland
OK, so today is the 2nd day I've spent with the Mobile controls from Domino 9.0.1. I must say the lack of a 9.0.1 Beta is quite obvious. So some of the "improvements" IBM made to the mobile controls are the addition of onBeforeTransitionIn/Out onAfterTransitionIn/Out. While these events are sorely needed, the implementation IBM chose to use doesn't work is kind-of odd. So, a brief rundown of the transition events pre 9.0.1. I posted a while back about how to implement these methods i [read] Keywords: domino ibm application community dojo mobile network server
