+ - 8th: a new cross-platform development tool 2

Submitted by eighthdev
eighthdev (4003001) writes "If you have tried to write the same application for multiple platforms, you know that it can be a difficult proposition. Different languages, APIs and capabilities are just the start.

Our solution, which we call "8th", is aimed at small to medium-sized companies as well as individual developers, who want to target any combination of Windows, OS X or Linux — for the desktop, Android or iOS — for mobile.

If you want to save time and money on your development, give 8th a try! http://8th-dev.com/"

By the end of the month everyone who practices personal responsibility and respect continue contributing to the normal human gene pool. It it's a hit expand it to 2-3 months a year.

+ - Barnes & Noble fails to update Nook app in advance of Android 5.0

tulare (244053) writes "If you read your eBooks on a Nexus device, plan on doing without reading anything purchased via the Nook bookstore for a while. According to comments made by NOOK on their Facebook page, they will be releasing a fixed version in a week or two.

This begs a couple of questions:
Why did BN miss this?
If BN decides the app business is too much trouble and walks away, what happens to the DRM-protected libraries of their customers?

This has happened before."
