Nintendo shareholders want Mario on their iOS and Android devices. What Nintendo shareholders dream at night Since even before the original Nintendo Entertainment System landed in living rooms, one of the Big N’s core business practices has been profiting from their hardware. It would stand to reason, then, that the concept of developing Mario or Zelda games for the iPhone would be ludicrous. Despite the logic, Nintendo investors are growing angry over the company’s continued shunning of mobile gaming platforms. According to Naoku Fujimura and Yoshinori Eki of Bloomberg Tokyo, Nintendo shareholders want Nintendo to abandon their hardware exclusivity with their core franchises, and either begin acquiring mobile game companies under their umbrella, or develop new content for devices like the iPhone.

Masamitsu Ohki, a fund manager for the Tokyo-based Stats Investment Management Co., reminds us that Nintendo’s stock price is at a six-year low. The above image is a valid supporting argument for Nintendo shareholders.


Le Mime d'Hasso. Si vous vouliez jouer à Mimo Mime avec votre ordinateur, c'était rapé : ce dernier était jusque là incapable de comprendre vos gestes.

Le Mime d'Hasso

Mais la Kinect mène à tout. Dans un article récent du New Scientist, on apprend en effet que Christian Holz, de l'Institut Hasso Plattner à Postdam, en Allemagne vient de co-développer un système original avec Andy Wilson de Microsoft Research à Redmond, appelé Data Miming. Il peut reconnaître des objets à partir de gestes sans que l'utilisateur d'avoir à mémoriser un vocabulaire de mouvements spécifiques.

Les chercheurs, partant du constat que chaque humain peut comprendre sans effort les objets qui sont décrits lorsque les mouvements de la main sont utilisés, a voulu faire en sorte que les ordinateurs puissent être de la partie eux-aussi.

Elle pourrait notamment faciliter les achats via téléphone portable. Qu'est ce que la technologie NFC ? Technologie de communication de proximité (quelques centimètres) lancée par Sony et Philips, le NFC (pour Near Field Communication ou communications en champ proche), permet d'échanger des données entre un lecteur et n'importe quel terminal mobile ou entre les terminaux eux-mêmes et ce, à un débit maximum de 424 Kbits/s.

Key Enabling Technologies to spur Europe's technological leadership

A key expert group set up by the Commission today set out guidelines on giving European industry a competitive edge in deploying the industrial technologies of the future (Key Enabling Technologies). The main conclusions call on decision-makers to adopt radical policy objectives to retain critical capability and capacity in Europe through a single and comprehensive approach to KETs.

In particular, the group recommends that the vital importance of KETs should be reflected in the structure and funding balance in the upcoming framework for research and innovation and in the priorities of the EU's future regional policy. Technological research and product demonstration projects should be given a high priority. The Commission will report back on the policy recommendations in a communication at the beginning of 2012.

Mesh networking

A mesh network can be designed using a flooding technique or a routing technique. When using a routing technique, the message is propagated along a path, by hopping from node to node until the destination is reached. To ensure all its paths' availability, a routing network must allow for continuous connections and reconfiguration around broken or blocked paths, using self-healing algorithms. A mesh network whose nodes are all connected to each other is a fully connected network. Mesh networks can be seen as one type of ad hoc network. The self-healing capability enables a routing based network to operate when one node breaks down or a connection goes bad. Advantages[edit] Disadvantages[edit] The more extensive the network, in terms of scope or of physical area, the greater the investment necessary to build it will be, due, among other considerations, to the amount of cabling and the number of hardware ports it will require.

Domain-driven design. Domain-driven design (DDD) is an approach to software development for complex needs by connecting the implementation to an evolving model.[1] The premise of domain-driven design is the following: Concepts[edit] Concepts of the model include: Context The setting in which a word or statement appears that determines its meaning; Domain Model A system of abstractions that describes selected aspects of a domain and can be used to solve problems related to that domain; Ubiquitous Language A language structured around the domain model and used by all team members to connect all the activities of the team with the software.
