"Companies have invested a significant amount of money in SOA – and continue to do so," says Jeff Haynie, Co-Founder & CEO of Appcelerator, in this exclusive Q&A with SYS-CON's AJAX & RIA Journal in the run-up to Appcelerator's session on October 20 at AJAX World RIA Conference & Expo in San Jose, California (October 20-22, 2008). "One of the keys to unlocking the full return on investment in SOA is the ability to build service-oriented UIs (SOUIs) – clients designed to consume services, regardless of language or platform," Haynie continues. "We believe Appcelerator's approach truly zeros in on the need for a clean separation of the application from services in an agile development model," he adds. Read the interiew in full below...

Ajit Jaokar's Mobile Web 2.0 Blog: "The Dawn of the Widget Widget Web"

The World Wide Web, as we know it, is exploding. From its fragments emerges a new "container-based" Web based on Widgets. For the lack of a better term, I shall call it a "Widget Widget Web." I have long advocated the power of Widgets to transform the Web as we know it. Hence, I am starting a new set of blogs on the future potential and evolution of Widgets. Recently, Om Malik also wrote a great article Suddenly everything's coming up widgets. The goal of the Widget Widget web series of blogs is to discuss the evolution of the Web using the Widgets philosophy. Modularization of software and applications is not new. The idea is simply "moving up the software stack." I remember the time when Object Oriented Software was a such a big buzzword (and as a slight diversion, I also remember someone telling me then that - their software was "Object Oriented" - whatever they ...

Introducing AskBing The PowerShell Bing Twitter Proxy

Last week I posted a PowerShell function library for Microsoft’s newly introduced search engine at Bing.com.  The function library was appropriately named PoshBing. There was a log of interest in the script so I quickly moved it off my blog and onto a CodePlex project under PoshBing. Working on the command line is fun and all, but since I spend a good portion of my time accessing my twitter account, I figured it would be a bit of fun to integrate it with my previously released PoshTweet PowerShell twitter library. So, after an hour or so of coding it up and creating the @askbing twitter account, I’ve got it up and running. Using it is as simple as posting a message mentioning the @askbing account.  The Usage is as follows: @askbing [sourcetype [options]] question_or_search_terms If you omit the sourcetype it will default to “web”.  The following sourcetypes and opt...

Issues Facing Businesses in An Accountant’s Perspective

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) After the Enron debacle, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) assumed a leadership role in the rush toward an international set of accounting standards (IFRS). The long and proud independent standard setting process in the United States of America is being phased out in favor of an international standard setting process with an international governing body, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). So what’s the big deal? Confusing Standards? So will we have a single, simple, principles-based global set of accounting standards? Not so fast, my friend! Initially, public companies will be required to convert to IFRS while private US companies could choose to adopt IFRS for small- and mid-sized entities or could, along with not-for-profit organizations, continue to report under g...

CloudEXPO Stories
The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
