At Audobox HQ, we just had a discussion about browser autocomplete.
Ted pointed out that it would be interesting to see what each other’s “autocomplete alphabet” looked like. To find yours, type each letter and see what your browser suggests.
Without further ado, here’s mine:
I wonder… Does having a domain that starts with a less-common letter make using your service feel faster?
Check out George’s autocomplete alphabet and share yours over on Hacker News!
While much has been written about Android’s fragmentation in screen sizes, OS versions, and hardware vendors, I haven’t seen much discussion of a major problem that we’ve encountered in building Audobox.
That problem is Android development fragmentation.
There are at least three different ways to compile your Android app, and at least three major IDEs in use by developers. The tools for developing Android apps have become nearly as fragmented as the Android device ecosystem.
This fragmentation is damaging to collaboration between developers and to the development of open source Android projects.
Development on iOS is broken.
Paying for a developer account to run your own code on your own hardware. Waiting weeks for your app to clear the review process. Having to make sure that everything is perfect before you ship, because fixes will take days to reach your users. Does any of this sound familiar?
