I was trying to make some modifications to android emulator and was unable to find good set of instructions for the compiling the same.
Here are mine.
# Get the source code.
git clone https://android.googlesource.com/platform/external/qemu
# Install required dependencies.
sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib libesd0-dev libx11-dev \
libxext-dev libasound2-dev libpulse-dev \
# Install ia32 libraries (missing from default ubuntu 13.10).
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386 libpangox-1.0-0:i386 \
libpangoxft-1.0-0:i386 libidn11:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386
# Configure and build the emulator binary.
./android-configure.sh --no-gles --cc=/usr/bin/gcc
# The emulator binaries are in objs directory.
In Feb 2014, WSJ is reporting that Nokia is working on Android phone.
In Sept 2010,
Anssi Vanjoki, outgoing head of Nokia’s smartphone division, likens mobile phone makers that adopt Google’s software to Finnish boys who “pee in their pants” for warmth in the winter. Temporary relief is followed by an even worse predicament. [source]
As someone who has advocated Android for Nokia in the past, I think its just too late now to do that.
As the title suggests, I was looking for a way to send HTML mails in python using Amazon SES but did not find anything (or maybe my search skills are bad).
So, once I found the solution, I thought I might share it with everyone.
The basic idea is that contents of the mail (raw-message) must be a JSON dictionary with “Data” as main key whose value is a key value pair containing entries with keys like “From”, “To” etc.
Sample code can be seen below.
The book is written by Bill Walsh – San Francisco’s 49ers Football team coach who transformed the worst performing team of its era to the best performing team. The book talks about changes he brought in as well as his philosophy of leadership which is generic enough to apply outside of American Football. He is also known as the creator of West Coast Offense.
He brought in a Standards of Performance sets the expectations from everyone who was part of 49ers.
Process vs Result
- Aim for a Standard of Performance (which is absolute) vs winning (which is relative to others).
- “Process” of improvement leads to “result” of victory and not vice-versa.
- Focus on process which produces results and not on results.
- Promotions/wins/sales quotas are results, they do not provide information about performance. And its important to dig into performance to find truth hidden behind these results.
One of the biggest challenges to Intel’s x86 hegemony in consumer market has been the emergence of smart phones where ARM based processors have 90% market share. The PC market where Intel has a strong hold is declining at (estimated) 10% annual rate.
While a lot of coverage has been to given to Intel’s decline in consumer market, I believe Intel has tough road ahead in server market too. One major advantage Intel has is the amount of (legacy) code which has been written for x86 (the same thing which keeps Cobol on life support), this advantage is diminishing rapidly due to following trends.
The book is narration of author’s life as a prisoner in nazi concentration camp.
I have used Cover and Aviate but could not stay with either and am back to Nova (which offer static screen of apps).
A short summary of bitcoin
Electronic money is all about ledger (transactions) which tells who sent money to whom, in standard financial system, central/federal/reserve bank (different nations have different names for these) and by extension, financial institutions are “trusted” to maintain that ledger. Any work which requires a “trusted” party can in principle, be done using cryptography without requiring a “trusted” party and bitcoin is manifestation of that applied to ledger. For more thorough treatment have a look at original paper or this blog post.
