Qt Software just announced the QtMobility project. This is great news. Especially the "...ONE application which can be deployed across MANY platforms (Nokia and non-Nokia platforms)." This is yet another confirmation that Nokia did not acquire Trolltech to turn Qt into an S60 API - cross platform (or, as QtS says deploy everywhere!) is still important.



I just ran into the Wolfram|Alpha site (found it via NyTeknik). The site is amazing. Try, for instance, to search for a substance: caffeine. The result not only includes a nice picture of the molecule, but also quite a few facts about the substance.

Looking a molecules is fun, but the man behind W|A was also responsible for Mathematica. So, go ahead, enter a formula: sin(x)^2. The result includes period, a plot, derivate, integral, but also the steps taken to reach the results. I can imagine one or two maths students using this.

Well, sorry for bugging you with this - but I was absolutely stunned when I ran into the site. It has earned itself one of my bookmarks!

Update! This makes it less attractive: Groklaw - Terms of Use: A Real Difference Between Wolfram|Alpha and Google.


Tutorial: Layouts

I've just updated the Learn Qt tutorial with an entry on Layout Basics. I think that this is the last chapter before I can start putting together a "real" example application.
