  • Mobile Market Roundup

    According to The Korean Herald (who got their info from IDG), the top handset makers are:

    1. Nokia (40.9 million units, 34.6% global market share)
    2. Motorola (13.4% global market share)
    3. Samsung (12 million units, 10.1% global market share)
    4. Siemens (6.8% global market share)
    5. Sony Ericsson (5.7% global market share)
  • Quick Roundup

    Here are a few things that I’ve found today:

    • CompUSA has a bunch of coupons and stuff that you can print and have fun with.
    • ModelingFramework looks interesting: “The Modeling framework intends to fill the gap between the python object world and relational databases. It relies on a model, based on Entity-Relationship Modelling, that describes how the two worlds map to each other. From your design of such a model, the database’s schema and corresponding python classes are automatically generated. Thus, once you have designed how your classes should be stored in the RDBMS, you can focus on the real challenges – the logic of your business objects – while remaining in the object-oriented world of those objects and never having to worry about the SQL and RDBMS persistence layer below.”
    • Beware of the Miami worm.
  • Offline: Packing

    Today is shaping up as a mostly offline day.  I’m getting ready for a few days in Orlando later this week.
