I found RSS is not very presentable format. That is very hard to read. A few days ago, I found a good android app, Feedly. It fixed this problem. It used a magazine style interface to present the RSS. That is very good.
It has some build-ins RSS feeds which is in wide range of topics, such as IT and Business. Also, you can link it with your Google Reader. That is so cool!
In addition, not just the feed is presentable. The interface to view individual item is cool too!
You can use it to share the item too within a click!

Yesterday, I connected my A500 to my computer. I can do some debug works in this tablet. That is not Plug and Play. You have to download the USB driver in acer. Please select tablet-> Iconia TAB-> A500. After you installed the driver, then the tablet is set to enable for debug and plug-in the tablet via USB. That will works fine!
I got a lot of spam from the Joomla contact form, I need a captcha plug-in. Actually, there are a lot of anti-spam plug-in in Joomla. But they are fairly complex, some of them even have a custom-build contact form. That is too much.
After I spent some time to research on the internet, I found a plug-in calls Joo ReCaptcha. That is very simple. After I installed that, the contact form will have ReCaptcha image under the input fields. That is great!
I went to the training event for Windows Azure Platform as a part of Bizspark camp. That is a great event. Thank you, Microsoft. They organized this event for the start-up like us.
The sessions are very useful and informative too! The speaker, Steve Nagy, did a great job. We got a lot of information about Azure today!
I am interested to use Azure SQL and Compute. They are Platform as a Service. Basically, I just need to deploy the website via Visual Studio to Azure Compute and run SQL in Azure SQL. They will handle all load balancing and OS Patching. That is good for the start up companies like us. We have not a dedicated server team to do those things I can scale in or out the Azure Compute instances when the load of website changes.
The most interesting thing is Azure SQL. For Azure Compute, they charge the number of instances you used and the size of each instance. But they only charge the storage of database in Azure SQL. They will do replication and load balancing behind the scene. They won't charge CPU Usage. I don't need to scale up the server when the load is increasing. Azure SQL should give more CPU and memory resources to the SQL server I use. They can handle the load without charge. That is good for web application will query the database a lot and run some expensive queries.
Our Company, AdvanGeneration, has started some Android application development projects. We started to build a tool for developer as our first Android App.
This tool calls AdvGen Geo Information. It can retrieve the spatial information from GPS or Wifi.
The information returned is helpful for the developers who are building some location-based application. You can use this information to compare with the result from your application.
