Interview with Ted Ladd, formerly lead evangelist, Platform Group, Palm, Inc. WBT: Can you tell us a little about the two recent Palm releases - the m100 and the Palm VIIx? TL: Let me answer, if I may, from a platform perspective. (When I say Palm I am including the Palm device business and the Palm licensees team - like Sony, Nokia, Motorola.) Handheld devices right now are separating into two different segments. The first segment is for your grandmother. These are low-cost devices with basic functionality, tried-and-true technologies aimed at people who need handheld computers but don't necessarily even have a laptop or desktop computer.

From what I've seen of the reviews and some of the early number... (more)

Is Wireless Ready for Prime Time? Maybe...

Before moving into a new apartment a few months ago, I did what any self-respecting technology-obsessed person would do - ensure that all the necessary staples of my existence would be turned on and tested before I arrived. The week before I planned to move in, I scheduled installations of cable, RoadRunner (cable modem), telephone service, and gas (even I need heat and a stove), and arranged for my power to be turned on as well.

Partners on the service side include AT&T Wireless, Verizon, and Cingular, while on the manufacturing side ... (more)

Let Your CF Voice Be Heard

Another month in the world of CF has passed, and as always, it's certainly not been a dull one. This month's editorial will be devoted to a handful of important CFDJ housekeeping items before you turn the page to get into the technical meat. The 3rd Annual CFDJ Readers' Choice Awards are now in full swing with hundreds of votes in so far and more coming in even as I write. I'm also proud to note that we've received lots of positive feedback from around the industry for the new fraud protection and voting systems that we've added to this year's awards program. The most notable addi... (more)

They're Baaaack...

Last year's Readers' Choice Awards greatly exceeded our expectations. Over 13,000 votes were cast, many more than we imagined. What it proved to us here at CFDJ, and what it demonstrated to the industry as a whole, was the maturity of the ColdFusion industry. It also showed your devotion, as developers, to the products and companies that help you the most. The products you use daily and that cut down on the time, energy, and money it takes to develop the world's leading Web applications were rewarded with awards - picked by you and presented by us. Those that didn't strike your ... (more)
