What features would an ideal transaction oriented big data database require?

The IT industry has decades of experience with traditional database engines that were designed to support transactional applications. Now the industry is exploring non-traditional database engines, such as hadoop, for web scale management of huge amounts of rapidly changing data. Hugely scalable transactional systems need something new. What do those requirements look like?

HTC held a big event in London today to announce the new HTC Hero Google Android device running with their new HTC Sense user interface. The Hero is a sleek looking Google Android device that appears similar to the HTC Magic with a slimmer form factor that still incorporates that distinctive "chin". The HTC Sense UI integrates methods of communication to improve the end user experience and is a UI that will be incorporated across HTC devices in the future. HTC and Adobe also announced that Flash Player 10 will be integrated in the Hero.

Gravity gives you the best Twitter experience on a mobile phone

Surprisingly, there has not yet been a dedicated (non-Java) Twitter client for the S60 platform even though S60 leads the world in market share. There was a very tightly controlled private beta of Gravity going on for a month or so, but I didn't get a chance to try it myself. This morning Gravity went public and I immediately downloaded and installed it on my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic device. After about an hour of usage I can say this application gives me the BEST Twitter experience on a mobile device. I have tried several iPhone and Windows Mobile applications, but find the speed, animations, functionality, multiple client support, and more to be so much better on the 5800.

Is your Java up to date?

For a long time, the experience of patching Sun's Java software has been less than pleasant. The updates were huge and time consuming, the patching instructions were a mess and, even worse, Sun never removed older, vulnerable versions from the patched machine.

New Bolt web browser for Java enabled phones now in beta

Years ago I tried using the ThunderHawk web browser on my Pocket PC to get a better browsing experience. ThunderHawk was developed by Bitstream and is a server-side browser like the new Skyfire browser that is under development. I just read over on CrackBerry.com that Bitstream is working on a new browser called Bolt for Java-enabled handsets. The Bolt browser is in beta right now and CrackBerry.com has 1,000 invites so get on over and sign up for the beta to test on your device.

Finding where a photo has been shot

It's not the first time that Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) researchers play with Flickr image collections. Last year, they've used Flickr to edit our photos. Now, they're trying to estimate the geographic location of a single photo by comparing it to a database of 6 million pictures accurately geolocated by Flickr users. According to the researchers, their method allowed them to correctly guess the location of an unknown photo 30 times better than with pure luck (how did they measure this?). Even if their system seems to work well, it is not perfect yet. For example, the 'architecturally unique Sydney Opera House seemed to the computer to be similar to a hotel in Mississippi as well as a bridge in London.' But read more...

Ingres brings OpenROAD tool for rapid DB apps development to GPL

We've seen lots of tools move toward sunsetting via the open source route, but OpenRoad may have lasting appeal. Developers say it's twice as fast as Java tools for database centric apps. Those apps can be n-tier, or client-server. And MySQL nor Postgres have anything quite like it, so that may drive wider community involvement in the Empire community.

Everyone loves the Eee

I spent the day at a conference sponsored by our SIS developer. The food was excellent, which is always a solid barometer for conference success and I learned that I've forgotten too much java (X2's Aspen SIS largely uses java to interact with the relational database that sits on its back end) and really need to get back into programming this summer.
