A(rghhh!)ndroid

OK. I’ve finally purchased a recent desktop set-up and could take a serious look at the Android development platform. With a surprise, I discovered that Google made a interesting shift toward IntelliJ. Is this kind of a fish slapping dance? It doesn’t really matter who is who here, but Eclipse Foundation does not feel particularly well I’m afraid.

 

Anyway, this is not about an IDE war.

Let put it straight – what a horribly bloated environment is this! With simplicity on the user side, comes complexity on the developer desk. Isn’t it? Java and tons of XMLs. I never liked that couple.

But still, this is an interesting platform, to make money of course. And could be worth to invest few hundreds hours in it.

Is there an Android demo scene? A rhetorical question :)

 

 

A reason to buy an Android tablet?

I don’t have a tablet. Neither an Android clone, nor iPad. My wife does. An iPad. Useful to watch some videos in the kitchen sometimes.

Out of a blue…

I found a reason to backup an Android tablet purchase in near future. Not really sure how it feels to “touch” the Amiga Workbench, but I bet someone will review that soon – Amiga Forever Essentials for Android

I believe there are lot of, more or less legal, emulators for Android already. With Cloanto however, it gets a great foundation.
