Google Maps on the Good Old Palm OS

You know, despite all the modern Smartphones, and my new Treo 750v, I still always have a hankering for my Palm Treo 650

You know, despite all the modern Smartphones, and my new Treo 750v, I still always have a hankering to go back to my Palm Treo 650.  The ease of use is still  just fantastic compared to just about anything I've ever used...the apps are great, really functional.  Yes, it has its problems, its not WiFi, the camera is..well its dodgy as we know..it has no real JVM support although I appreciate you can get a JVM on it, but it takes so much effort and space, the end result is still not worth it...and then there are the applications that won't run that you come to rely on, such as Google Maps.  Wait, did I say Google Maps..now just hang on there, there *is*  a Google Maps client for the Palm..and it really rocks !

The applications is everything you expect, very responsive, and the UI with the translucent buttons is even kinda sexy - great job !  I think a retro smartphone may just be the new chic thing to have ? No ?  Well, currently I'm back on the Treo 650 again!

Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to impr...
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully ...

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
