Steve Jobs

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do

Here is a tribute to one of the most talented men who truly revolutionised the world by teaching people how to 'think different'.

As an outstanding entrepreneurial idol, he had constantly inspired me since my very early childhood.

He showed the world what real simplification in technology could do and profoundly demonstrated how art and technology can innovatively complement each other.

May he rest in peace

Java 7 is finally out!!

Last week I had an invitation into Java 7 release. Missed it since I was living at the other side of the Atlantic.

Obviously, it's always a pity to miss such an event, however Java's still holding up as the most crucial part of my tech life.

Almost a year from last year's JavaOne conference in San Francisco where I met crowds of professional Java developers discussing the next version of Java and how wonderful it would get.

It's absolutely amazing how Java's been evolving over the years and indeed quite thrilling to see it's still the top priority for folks in Oracle as it'd been for Sun guys.

As you could guess (or already know), performance wise, Java 7 is more responsive and amazingly fast.

Garbage Collector seems to be much more improved, especially in terms of concurrency.

Finally there is a major alteration in JDK which has always been my primary point of concern (modularity, abstraction and consistency)

Can't wait to get all coding again!!

Final Flight of the Shuttle Atlantis STS-135

Space shuttle Atlantis is set to liftoff today on the final flight of the shuttle program. It's a 12-day mission to the International Space Station. It will carry a crew of four and the Raffaello multipurpose logistics module containing supplies and spare parts for the space station. The STS-135 astronauts are: Commander Chris Ferguson, Pilot Doug Hurley, and Mission Specialists Sandy Magnus and Rex Weilham.

Atlantis will launch in 5 hours and 15 minutes.

Full Speed Ahead

Finally the effectivity/feasibility of my (belated!!) proposed stack protocol architecture based on top of Zigbee/IEEE 802.15.4 standards have proved conclusive.
Now all the theoretical stuff will enter into implementation stage.
Given 18 sensor nodes and plenty of testing, measurement, debugging and emulating tools, all my efforts will be focused on developing a unique middleware based on evolutionary concepts which will consequently revolutionise any modular-based embedded system.
Since the very beginning of my research, I've always believed in forming some sort of seamless compatibility between hardware and software.

The aforementioned compatibilty has finally come into effect utilising a generic concept which will allow interactivity amongst various platforms.
