    As (bad) luck would have it, the solid state drive with my Linux partition died the week of Thanksgiving. I have backups of the data, so I haven’t lost anything other than time. I used that partition for testing and building the Android platform sources and that’s about it. It’s aggravating to lose the SSD, but not devastating. All my important files are stored elsewhere. After the hard drive died, I needed to get the latest code for Android 4.2.1 that came out in late November. Instead of going through the hassles of installing a

  • Another resource leak

    on Mar 1, 11 • by Alen Zukich • with 1 Comment

    It happened again.  For what seems like the 100th time, someone reports to me that they are seeing a number of false positive reports on the resource leak checker.  For those not familiar with a resource leak, take a look at a previous post.  Although resource leaks apply across most languages, the place where this question keeps coming  up seems to always be in Java or C# code.  My last query came from Java code, so we will use that as an example.  Here was a report where the FileInputSteam is not closed on exit

    In my last post, I talked about some of the reasons why I started developing Android apps. The new Android 2.3 Gingerbread is even better than Froyo. I’m talking about a whole new Nerdy and the Droid factory. With Gingerbread released and rolled out on the new flagship phone, the Google Nexus S, the developers’ wait is over. Some of the new features and functionalities baked within Gingerbread are: 1.    More power under the hood My Nexus One lasts me about a day running Froyo. Android is now way smarter in managing its electrons with

  • Why Android is such a developer magnet!

    on Dec 21, 10 • by Vahid Jozi • with No Comments


    The open-source, Linux-based and hardware-independent Android mobile OS, with the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread release is giving mobile developers a whole new ball court to play in. Android is the fastest growing mobile OS among its competitors and with its share in the Smartphone user market growing, Android is attracting more and more enthusiastic developers. Being a Java developer I jumped right into Android development about a year ago. There is a whole list of reasons why I chose to develop Android apps over other platforms and here are some of them: 1.    Low development

  • Android apps buggy?

    on Dec 22, 09 • by Alen Zukich • with 6 Comments

    We are starting to see a large amount of Android phones such as the Droid and Xperia X10 (see a review here) and the (soon-to-be-released) first Google phone, Nexus One. With this, expect the number of apps to increase significantly. So with the increased number of apps, do these developers have the right tools to find and fix bugs? Take a look at the leader of phone applications-iPhone. There have been several posts (here and here) that recommend using the Clang static analyzer. Apple has taken it one step further, apparently rejecting iPhone apps that
