links for 2010-10-19: Twitter stats; Windows Phone 7; AWS Management Console adds SNS support

  • Replies and Retweets on Twitter - Some interesting stats, love the data.  Are you surprised the retweets/replies are that high or do you think it was higher?
  • Windows Phone 7 - Seems like an uphill climb in the phone market but tablet market could be a place to grow share.
  • AWS Management Console Now Supports Amazon SNS - I didn't mind using the command line tools, in fact they are preferred in many cases, but adding support to the Management Console GUI is a nice addition.

links for 2010-10-04: Forking of Java; Stewardship of Java

  • Is it time to fork Java? - Clearly disappointed by JavaOne (JavaHalf?), Greg proposes "Lava".
  • Time to fork Java? - Sacha's response.  Provides some good history on the issues and highlights Oracle's flip-flopping positions.  "when ORCL’s lawyers have the same opinion two-weeks in a row, the only conclusion you can draw is that they changed their mind an even number of times."
  • Java: The Unipolar Moment - James points out many instances where single vendor stewardship is not the norm and why that can't be the case for Java.
