About Me

  • Hello you. I'm a 38-year old MSc student, studying Advanced Computer Science at Sussex University. I'm especially interested in Internet and mobile software, sensors and pervasive computing, user interfaces, and the process of developing great software.

    Before that I spent 11 years running Future Platforms, a software company I co-founded which makes lovely things for mobile phones, and which I sold in 2011.

    I read a lot, write here, and practice Aikido and airsoft. I live in Brighton, a seaside town on the south coast of the UK, with two cats and a clown.

Great mini post Tom, I couldn't agree more. What a lot of people don't really get either (I think) is that making an app for an iPown is only necessary when you need access to the iPowns device functions;GPS/Camera etc. Very few web players need that, and yet there are I don't know how many iPown specific *sites* there are out there. What's wrong with good XHTML that renders properly in the iPown Safari? Is there a good reason to make iPown specific sites? I may very well just be being dense so please do let me know what you think.
