The EU officially opposed Oracle’s acquisition of Sun earlier this week, and it looks like a fight is going to break out. Will there be anything left of Sun before the dust settles?

This one had me laughing out loud. If you are a programmer of any kind (which you most likely are if you are reading my blog) then you should have Jeff Atwood in your RSS Reader, not just for his wit, but also for his insight.

An Event that happened this week marked the end of an era for me: I lost the lid to my stainless steel thermal coffee tumbler (rendering it useless for on-the-go coffee) that I got at what some say could be the last JavaOne ever.

The guys over at TUAW were at it again today with automating network shares. Check it out: Question: In a windows network (client/server or peer to peer) a user can map a network drive to any node on the network. That mapped drive can then be fond under the user’s “my computer icon” or “my network places” without the user having to re-establish connection.

TUAW had a article last night on how to update the api documentation in Xcode. Now you’ll find your documentation sets in the Xcode Preferences window (Xcode > Preferences… or Command-, and then choose the Documentation tab). Also, if checked, Xcode will automatically update your documentation when you launch it.

It is upon us, Windows 7 is here. Being a Mac guy, I try to avoid having to use Windows, but it is inevitable. I have two Windows computers at home and I use Windows VMs on my Mac at work. Having been a major hater of Vista (I switched back to XP after trying it), I was curious to give Windows 7 a spin and see if it would be better than XP.

I am still in the dark ages of the internet and use an RSS reader to get my news instead of Twitter. On my Mac, I use and love NetNewsWire. Recently NetNewWire switched from syncing with NewsGator to syncing with Google Reader, it didn’t bother me as I rarely use the web interface. I was, however, excited about the improvements that were coming to NetNewsWire for iPhone.

One thing I have been wondering how to do for a while on my Mac is have network shares connect automatically at login. Turns out is easy (as one would expect on Mac OS X). The solution appeared in today’s edition of Ask TUAW. They say:

Here’s a quick tip. I have to do a maven command line build of one of our EARs on my current project. We can’t deploy with eclipse due to an unfortunate deficiency in maven not actually supporting skinny war files inside an ear. I don’t like staring at the build, but I also don’t like have to remember to check back every 30 seconds to see if it has finished yet, so here’s a little to get my mac to tell me when it is done.

One of the things that I love about JBoss is that they have some really cool technology. It is my impression that the power of their technology often gets lost in the shuffle as they try to position themselves to compete against Weblogic, Websphere, Glassfish, etc. One recent example is HornetQ, formally know as JBoss Messaging 2.0. They have a blog post about the shear speed they are getting from the message persistence on HornetQ, and it is pretty awesome. Stuff like this is what makes JBoss products a pleasure to work with as a Software Engineer.

I’ve seen quite a few posts about not being able to use Apple’s Bluetooth wireless Mighty Mouse with Windows. I just got mine working nicely with the Thinkpad T60 (running Vista Business 32-bit) I’m using while my MacBook Pro is in the shop. The trick was to using the passkey 0000 when prompted by the Windows Bluetooth utility. Wireless mouse goodness to keep away the trackpad blues. The only problem I am having is that after I restart the machine, I can’t get the mouse to reconnect without removing it and then re-adding it.

Copy and Paste is coming! Let the masses of iPhone users rejoice. If you haven’t been labeled an Apple fan boy as I have, then you might not know that Apple gave us a look at the next version of the operating system that runs on the iPhone and iPod Touch on Tuesday. Among the new features that I am excited about are copy and paste between applications, support for CalDAV calendars (I’ve been a bit disappointed with Google ActiveSync implementation, especially since I would rather be using that with the CityTech Exchange server), landscape keyboard mode for all the built-in applications and device wide search. There was also a ton more that I won’t detail here. Head over to arstechnica.com for their coverage of the full list of new features for both developers and users or watch the video of the event and see why this is truly a major version increment for iPhone OS.

I just discovered today that you can double tap the home button on your iPhone (or iPod Touch in my case) in order to access a little popup menu that let’s you start and stop your music and adjust the volume using the software volume control. If the phone isn’t locked, you can elect to go straight to the Music app as well.
