Titanium 3.0 + Sublime Text Integration
Recently I have been diving into the wonderful world of App development for iOS with Titanium 3.0 Alloy. One of the initial things I had to setup was Titanium Studio IDE which is basically Eclipse IDE. I don’t know about you but personally I hate Eclipse. Always has looked ugly and ran like crap, probably because its built with Java. Anyhow on a day to day basis I use Sublime Text to write...

My life in Techstars
This year by far has been a crazy one for me, I recalled saying back in March after my big Geek Tour 2011 that I only hoped to set foot in NYC again this year. Little did I know that I would end up living there for almost four months! Earlier this year I started working for a start-up called zferral which provides online referral marketing software to businesses of all sizes. Standard SaaS style...
I just realized that I haven’t posted on this blog in ages… I really wish I could start blogging more again or if anything just sharing random things from my interesting life. =)
iPhone Location Tracking Issue
Ever wondered if that nifty smart phone in your pocket is tracking where you go? Maybe you haven’t? Well in reality if your GPS/location is enabled and by default it is then you might have guessed right that your phone is indeed tracking and logging your locations. Going as far as time-stamping every update as well. Further more not only is it storing your data, but storing it in a simple...
A Hilarious Moment
I thought this was funny, maybe you will to: So today I was at Ikea with my mom, quick lil trip to look at and price some things and have some lunch. Ikea food rocks! So anyhow… once we ate and got done walking around the top floor we then went to head down to the first floor. Upon walking down the stairs I notice a guy and girl heading up the stairs. The guy was wearing the standard Apple...
Too many questions...
As I said in my last post (please read it.) and promised to blog more so here we go! Not that much has changed since the last posting, still a lot of questions and uncertainties up in the air right now. Still 1000 ways I can go with different things. Gotta start locking down and figuring out things. Most things I’m just taking day-by-day right now. Especially with my emotions, we...

One being my plans for the next few months, years, etc. Figuring out what I want to do, who I want to be...

Code Refactoring Really Does Matter
Okay Okay! I get it now! Code Refactoring is a plus, I’ve recently taken a nice gander in doing so. I find that taking that extra bit of time to go back and refactor code even to the slightest bit helps in many ways. Ex: Speed Optimization, Load Optimization, Readability, and Reducing overly-complex code. Give it some thought next time you write code, shoot this could with a different...

Tumblr vs Website
I’ve found lately that I’ve been posting a bit more to my Tumblr vs my normal website, go figure! So anyhow I feel that is because this is more of a random, simple blog to post to vs my website, plus here I can be a bit more random with my postings. Thoughts? Cheers!

Apple Keynote Thoughts
I’m overall quite impressed with the iPad so far, though it is missing a few key features and it’s name is less than perfect, iSlate would have been a lot better IMHO. Still its not bad for a $499 starting price-point, however I don’t agree with the $130+ additional cost for a WIFI+3G version. Missing Key Features: Lacks a Webcam, would be nice to have one on each side, one...
My Apple thoughts for the coming months
I suspect that Apple at WWDC in june will release 4.0 and the new iPhones with non-sim carrier support (aka verizon) as in June the agreement between Apple and AT&T will be up (however it may not be now that the iPad is coming out with AT&T 3G support.) Also anyone with an original iPhone will NOT be able to run 4.0 when it does come out due to hardware limitations, similar to how the...
