Hash: SHA1

Free/Open-source Statistical Software

| If you are looking for a computer program that can help you get the results 
| of standard statistical procedures and statistical significance tests without 
| the need for low-level numerical programming, then a statistical package is 
| what you need.   


Ten Android Challenge winners featured

,----[ Quote ]
| "10 Apps That Met Google's Android Dev Challenge" takes a sneak peak at ten 
| winners from the developers' contest. Last week, the Open Handset Alliance 
| (OHA) announced 46 winners out of 1,788 submissions for the first round of 
| the Android Developer Challenge. The contest awards the best and most 
| innovative of applications built for the Google-backed Java- and Linux-based 
| mobile phone application suite due to launch this Fall. Each winner earns 
| $25,000, with the chance to compete for awards of $275,000 and $100,000 in 
| later rounds.

Autoconf: The Unsung Hero of Source Code Compatibility

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the unsung heroes of the open-source revolution is a little program 
| called "Autoconf," written and distributed by the Free Software Foundation as 
| part of its GNU project. Autoconf was designed to solve a problem that 
| existed for many years on Unix systems, namely that they were largely 
| compatible at the source level, but not at the binary level. This meant that 
| while the source code could remain the same, or mostly the same, no matter 
| what version of Unix you were running, you needed to compile the program on 
| your particular computer in order for it to work.       



R: A (Statistically) Significant Language

,----[ Quote ]
| When people talk about big, successful open-source projects, they often think 
| about software that can be used in large organizations. So we hear a great 
| deal about the Linux operating system, the MySQL database, and even Ruby on 
| Rails as a framework for developing Web applications.   


MIT students demonstrate their Android applications

,----[ Quote ]
| This just in; kids that go to MIT are really F-ing smart. I just saw seven
| Android applications that have been developed over the short span of four
| months — with very little (if any) money — as part of a class
| called “Building Mobile Applications with Android”. It was a lot like most
| college presentations, except that HTC, Google, Verizon, Sprint, and the
| press don’t usually show up.
| Hit the jump for a peek at the applications.


Android : A sneak peek at the future of online gaming...

,----[ Quote ]
| The progress from old MUDS to modern MMORPG was only in terms of technology.
| There was not much of a change in the game play or the basic idea. All that
| is going to change in a few months. City Slickers, one of the Top 50
| submissions of the Google Android Developer Challenge 2008 is going bring a
| breath of fresh air into the world of multi player online gaming.


T-Mobile and Google cozy up with Android

,----[ Quote ]
| As for other carriers in the United States, Sprint joined the Open Handset
| Alliance from the outset and is a founding member. Verizon's CEO has been
| quoted as saying, "We're planning on using Android." Meanwhile, AT&T's CEO
| is "encouraged by the idea that an Android phone could host AT&T branded
| apps." That said, Verizon and AT&T have yet to make anything official,
| although nothing is stopping them from releasing Android-powered handsets in
| the future.
