But what if there is no sound at all?
Welcome to the quiet world of Formula E, a global racing series for electric cars, which debuts this month in Beijing.
China has been building structures, hunting and mass poaching endangered species and destroying coral reefs within the maritime exclusive economic zones of The Philippines and Vietnam (200 nautical miles or 370km from the coastline of those countries) while at the same time, forming naval blockades and harassing fishermen from Vietnam and the Philippines in their own waters. Recently a Chinese fishing vessel was caught with the poaching and mass slaughter of over 500 endangered and protected sea turtles within Philippine waters. Pics of the slaughter.
Another must read is the NY Times article A Game of Shark And Minnow about the ragtag crew of Philippine marines stationed on a grounded derelict ship in the area as an outpost. That NY Times article has a very good diagram on the 200NM exclusive economic zones and China's ridiculous "nine-dash line" tongue-shaped delineation which claims the entirety of the area hundreds of miles away from their nearest legal territory, Hainan Island. The basis of China's 9-dash line claims? Fabricated bullshit. Pre-19th century maps show this. Even China's own historical maps contradict their absurd claims. Bullying, intimidation, violation, invasion and annexation of territories of smaller, weaker states. It's that simple. See also: Tibet.
yeah, run the reiserFS instead of HFS+
Ya dude! That's a real killerFS !
To start, they should create a [write-once run-anywhere environment] for Windows. There's more than enough libraries that should make it possible.
It's called Java
Surprise surprise! It's called the Flash Platform! -> Flash/Flex/AIR
OP Author is yet another guy who didn't do his homework and properly research the tech he was talking about. With the Adobe AIR pathway instead of targeting the in-browser Flash Player, you can a good workflow going. Very cost effective to do minor tweaks from single code/asset base as opposed to having separate devs or doing separate ports to Android, iOS, Desktop, etc with their native languages if you lack time/developers/resources.
Check it out: Multi-Screen application running on Android, iOS and the Playbook all powered by Adobe Flex & AIR
For those with any doubts about the Flash Platform/AIR solution for iOS, Machinarium which was built entirely with Flash CS Pro took the #1 spot in paid apps and knocked Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies from the top spot during its release: Top iPad Game Apps: Machinarium Topples Angry Birds Seasons
So yes, it is a good production & deployment solution.
As for open source, the Adobe Flex SDK is open and free so no probs on that front. It's more or less the same thing as the JDK. Runtime/player might not be open source, but the toolchain can be: build your flex/AS3 app using any text editor/IDE you want, then compile via command line with mxmlc instead of javac
3. Flash/Flex is not touch-friendly and generally make for a poor mobile experience.
You know, Callahan's is a peaceable bar, but if you ask that dog what his favorite formatter is, and he says "roff! roff!", well, I'll just have to...
