Windows, HP, Android, Samsung Galaxy are Garbage; Apple is the Savior

I have been a devote Windows user, I can say that from the very beginning, let me state the Windows OS that I remember being using: MS-DOS. Ho yes! not bad. Do you remember the version 7 and 8?. A light fast OS. Personally I was enjoying. I remember I was using 3 or 4 diskettes. You could use any crappy refurbish computer that you were able to run it. Windows 3.11. OK kind of windows system, but ahead of Macintosh.

Bluehost, Subversion y TortoiseSVN

Subversion es un control de versiones de código abierto ampliamente difundido. Casi toda la información es susceptible de ser controladas con versiones, no haré ahora una disertación sobre este concepto.... Subversion no solo gestiona eficientemente las version, sino que permite de una rápida y segura compartir información entre personar ubicadas en diferentes países. He decidido instalar Subversion en mi servidor comercial bluehost, lo tengo desaprovechado: disco duro ilimitado, y un ancho de banda monumental y sólo hospedo unas pocas páginas web.

No More Local Contacts Sync…. Keep your Contacts on the Cloud

I’m so excited, that I have decided to write a post. I was so frustrated with my contacts in my Android Phone, they don’t stop to duplicate every time I was sync using Samsung Kies and Microsoft Outlook 2010.I’m not sure who was the guilty in the duplication; I guess it was related to Samsung Kies but I’m not sure, it could be Microsoft Outlook as well, I don’t have clear evidences.

Smart Bag – Android Application and Firmware Development

For our prototype we decided to use a bag made of a special fabric made of ultra-thin optical fibers. Apparel fitted with sensor detecting, recording analyzing physiological data from the wearer, environment and smart phones and on the other hand actuating based on those data, opens opportunities for many professional and leisure applications.

¨Teléfono inteligente¨ chupabatería

¿Teléfonos inteligentes? Bueno esto está por demostrar, de entrada consumen más energía que un coche eléctrico. Personalmente, me parece inaceptable el hecho que los tengas que recargar cada día o cada dos días, para mí el producto no está bien equilibrado, la funcionalidad básica de llamar, queda en entredicho debido a la excesiva frecuencia de recarga, es como si te compras un coche electico y te dicen que lo tienes que recargar cada 50 km, a eso si, no genera ruido, silencioso, espacioso, etc., pero la funcionalidad básica no la cumple, que es que te puede transportar una distancia razonable….

C y Unix de Luto

Sin duda hoy tengo que hacer un post, desgraciadamente porque Dennis Ritchie, persona fundamentar en la gestación y desarrollo del sistema operativo Unix y el lenguaje de programación C, ha muerto a los 70 años. En fin, muchas gracias Dennis por tu contribución a la historia de la humanidad, no he utilizado ningún otro lenguaje como el C de manera tan apasionada y con tanto fervor. Bueno últimamente tengo que decir que los tíos de Microsoft han hecho un trabajo magistral con C#.

La Era Post-PC?

Son numerosas las noticias que llevo oyendo respecto a que estamos en la era post-PC, desde que Steve Jobs lo profetizó. Mmmmh... bueno entre algunas de mis cualidades me dedico al diseño completos de sistemas electrónicos basados en micro controladores, en mi caso últimamente estoy diseñando sistemas basados en implementaciones de núcleos ARM por parte de NXP. Estos procesadores se llaman SoC, System on Chip, que quiere decir que tienen un montón periféricos integrados.

Generic Embedded Platform

Dear all,

This is Raul Bartome, founder, owner and engineering manager at Cisium Incorporated. We are specialized in the development of electronic products.

The next explanation is from the goal to create a generic embedded framework with the next key points

  • Taking advantage of the open source community
  • To be online of the trend market
  • Fast time to market
  • Low cost engineering development
  • Low cost finish product
  • Easy portability of the framework to specific products

Hardware

Obviously the heat of the system is the MCU/CPU. My approach was to find out a balance between the cheapest, most powerful, and higher trend MCU in the market. Without any doubt the winner is the AMR, many manufacturers have adopted these cores: TI, Samsung, nVidia, Intel, Atmel, NXP, Freescale, a never ending list. For a system designer like Cisium this provides a big advantage, this allows to switch between manufacturers with similar cores with a great reutilization of the knowhow.

The ARM architecture for our scope of embedded development is better positioned than MIPS, PPC, x86, AVR32, PIC32, etc. Just as reference, a NXP 1114 based on the ARM Cortex M0 can be purchase for 1 USD! (more…)
