FYI: How to get a replacement copy of Erica Sadun’s iOS Developer’s Cookbook

Here’s an example of a book publisher “doing the right thing” for their customers. Erica Sadun’s book, The iOS5 Developer’s Cookbook, has production process related defects. So, Pearson has corrected these errors in both the print and ebook versions and is making replacement copies available. Here’s the official announcement.

The iOS5 Developer’s Cookbook – RECALL

It has come to Pearson’s attention that problems occurred during the production process of The iOS5 Developer’s Cookbook. The scope of the error was widespread and all print and eBook versions of the first printing were affected. Pearson has corrected these errors and the title has been updated. To find out if the copy you have includes errors and how to obtain a replacement copy please visit informit.com/ios5update

MobileViews Blog Back Up & Running

Had a problem with my web hosting service saying this site was using too much memory and processor resources. They cut off access to the site. I upgraded to a virtual private server service and all seems well now.

Recommendations Request for MobileAppsToday Mobile App of the Week

I launched a new weekly feature over on my day-job-blog: MobileAppsToday.com called App of the Week. The recognition cuts across all the major mobile smartphone platforms. You can find the announcement and the first App of the Week, Ilium Software’s eWallet, at…

MobileAppsToday App of the Week Category

I think I can do a pretty good job IDing apps for Windows Mobile, iPhone, and Google Android. But, since I’m not a Blackberry or Symbian Series 60 (Nokia, etc.) user, I could use some help ID-ing apps that people should know about in those areas. If you have a recommendation or a write-up on your own site, please let me know. If you look at my site, you know I provide full attribution when I find something interesting on other sites/blogs. So, I’d be happy to link to your review or commentary on app.

Of course, I would be grateful to pointers to good apps for Windows Mobile, iPhone, and Google Android too. The somewhat lesser known apps would be good. I’d like to try to give awareness of interesting products to end-users and a way for developers to make a living. Freeware or for-fee products are all fine for recommendations.

Thanks!…todd

New Job; New Direction for this Blog


Post to my blog here have been light lately because I have a new job that is really a lot of fun :-)

I’m the new (and first) Editor for JupiterMedia/MediaBistro’s…

MobileAppsToday.com

site that focuses on, you guessed it, applications for mobile devices. This blog is NOT going away though. I’m just going to change its focus and direction a bit. I’m going to talk a lot (all day long) about mobile apps at MobileAppsToday. So, head over there for that type of information. This blog will be where I talk about how I personally use my mobile gadgets to do my work. I don’t have a 9-to-5 schedule or physical office anymore. So, I’m working whenever I have a data connection. I just bought and received the new Acer Aspire One netbook. So, I’ll be talking about that here.

Stay tuned to both this blog and my new full-time job blog at MobileAppsToday.com! From now on, I’m talking mobile all-day all-week long.

Tech Twitter-ing/Tweeting at toddogasawara


As a boutique blogger (i.e., low traffic site :-), my blogs tend to be more like a personal note taking service. Basically, I write about stuff that interests me or annoys me (tech related stuff, of course). If other people find it interesting too, great. Otherwise, blogging is way to quickly note things down that interest me. I’ve been twitter-ing with friends for over a year now. But, I figure most people have no interest in what I ate for lunch (even friends :-) or what book I read or movie I watched. So, I created a new Twitter account purely for personal quick tech related note taking (140 characters or less per tweet). You can find it at…

http://twitter.com/toddogasawara

I promise not to be a Twitter fire hose that clutters up your Twitter stream :-) You can see what I’ve posted in the past day since creating this new public Twitter account. See you on Twitter!

MobileViews Weekly Podcast #1

I testing the idea of a weekly podcast summarizing and commenting on my blog entries here. You can find the RSS feed for the podcast at…

MobileViews Podcast RSS Feed

The podcast itself with a built-in web audio player can be found at…

MobileViews Podcast 1 20071221

I recorded the audio using Vito Technology’s SoundExplorer on an HTC Advantage Pocket PC Phone Edition. I recorded it outdoors using the Advantage’s built-in microphone. Based on this initial experiment, I’ll record indoors on windy days :-) . I’ll probably experiment with recording techniques and topic presentation formats. So, please let me know if you have any, ahem, constructive suggestions.
