Random Thoughts of a Computer Science Professor at BYU - Hawaii
I am teaching a new class this semester called advanced web application development. The main topic is Ruby on Rails. A lot of students who have either graduated or couldn't take the course for some other reason wanted to me to make videos for them. I won't have time for videos, but I will post all the material I use here.
Kynetx App Store
Kynetx just launched an App Store to be able to find and manage all of your Kynetx apps. Instead of installing a bunch of different browser extension, you can now just install one. It will keep track of all of your Kynetx apps for you.
Initial Thoughts on my iPad
I know that many reviews have been written about the iPad, so I will keep this short. I just wanted to record my thoughts after owning the iPad for about a week.s
My Facebook News Feed
Take control over your Facebook news feed. Facebook uses a secret formula to decide who makes it into your news feed. Unfortunately, this formula prefers very active Facebook users over less active ones. (Look at the link for some other tips and trick to get you on more of your friends' news feeds.) Anyway, this always bugged me a little bit, so I decided to fix it for the next Kynetx developer contest.
AmaCraigBay now with Google Products
I have updated AmaCraigBay to include Google Products. If you already installed the browser plugin or bookmarklet, you don't need to do anything to get the update. It should just start showing up. Google products will include a lot more options to compare from, including stores like Walmart, Target, and KMart.
