The iPad: a Near-Miracle for My Son With Autism My son Leo's life was transformed when a five-dollar raffle ticket turned into a brand-new iPad. I'm not exaggerating. Before the iPad, Leo's autism made him dependent on others for entertainment, play, learning, and communication. Irony: We hadn't even considered getting Leo an iPad. After Leo spent five minutes with his iPad, I realized that any assumptions I had about it being merely a bigger or a more breakable iPod touch were idiotic. Leo mastered the iPad interface within a day. He's attempting drawings like we've never seen before on his iPad, via MagnaDoodle-y apps like DrawFree. But it's the early learning apps that really let Leo shine, like the spelling program FirstWords. IWriteWords is another intuitively designed favorite, and includes writing as well as spelling -- both challenging areas for Leo. Those two spelling apps may be autism-friendly, but they're not autism-focused. Leo may have communications difficulties, but he is a visual boy and a visual schedule pro.

Lecteurs en colère | La vérité sur les ePubs commerciaux | Page 3 Bonjour cher lecteur, Voici le tome 2 (pour respecter la logique éditoriale du livre) de mon article sur Les Enfers Virtuels de Iain Banks aux Éditions Robert Laffont. Après mes commentaires sur le prix, le DRM, les deux tomes, je m’attaque maintenant, bien entendu, au code. Si tu te souviens bien, le dernier ePub de Robert Laffont analysé par mes soins était Drood de Dan Simmons. Même si celui-ci était loin de la perfection, il y avait une base respectant la logique HTML. Avec les corrections suggérées, celui-ci deviendrait convenable à mes yeux. J’attends toujours la nouvelle version promise par la responsable numérique de Robert Laffont. Bref, j’ai analysé un code. Comme à chaque fois, je commencerai par le rendu, ce que toi simple lecteur (en apprentissage de code grâce à tes saines lectures) remarquerait facilement. Et dès la couverture, ça coince : Une énorme marge à droite (période électorale oblige?) En ouvrant la CSS, j’ai eu un regain d’espoir, une entrée manuelle ! Mais bien pire.

Spectrum: Red-Hot Robots It’s been a whirlwind 5 months for Douglas Hines, the self-professed computer geek who—after wading in obscurity for two decades in the computer-systems trenches—created a media frenzy with Roxxxy, the world’s first sex robot. News outlets like Fox News, BBC, and CNN clamored for a shot of Roxxxy after her January unveiling at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, while the Web site for his company, True Companion, logged 4.4 million hits. Roxxxy will be featured in the upcoming Discovery Health network documentary Sex Robot! And Hines has been fielding investor requests while simultaneously taking steps to expand and refine his product line with advanced facial animatronics, like blinking eyelids. It’s also been a bit scary—he’s had to dodge nutcases and even death threats. “Look, I’m middle-aged, balding, and heavy,” says Hines, a 27-year IEEE member. Hines devised the skin by encasing a woman—a fine-art model—in silicone and cutting the material away after it solidified.

Qu'est-ce que le XML ? - Structurez vos données avec XML Première définition Citation Le XML ou eXtensible Markup Language est un langage informatique de balisage générique. Cette définition est à mes yeux quelque peu barbare et technique, c'est pourquoi, je vous propose d'en décortiquer les mots-clefs. Un langage informatique Vous n'êtes pas sans savoir qu'en informatique, il existe plusieurs centaines de langages destinés à des utilisations très diverses. En vulgarisant un peu (beaucoup !) Les langages de programmation.Les langages de requête.Les langages de description. Les langages de programmation permettent de créer des programmes, des applications mobiles, des sites Internet, des systèmes d'exploitation, etc. Les langages de requêtes permettent quant à eux d'interroger des structures qui contiennent des données. Enfin, les langages de description permettent de décrire et structurer un ensemble de données selon un jeu de règles et des contraintes définies.

News Corp. Buys Part of Skiff E-Reader From Sprint and Hearst Joint Venture | Peter Kafka | MediaMemo | AllThingsD In January, Hearst and Sprint showed off something called a Skiff e-reader, which was designed with newspapers and magazines in mind and was supposed to go on sale this year. Hope you weren’t planning on buying one. News Corp. announced today that it has purchased Skiff from Hearst–but only the publisher’s e-reader software platform. The device itself remains the property of Hearst, which doesn’t want it, either; I’m told the publisher is trying to find a buyer. It’s theoretically possible that Sprint (S) will continue forward with a reading device that didn’t seem very appealing in January and that no one seems to want now. So what to make of News Corp.’s purchase? First: Not a surprise. Meanwhile, since the “Hulu for Magazines” joint venture (now officially named “Next Issue Media”) didn’t end up using the Skiff platform, what does News Corp. intend to do with it? Easy enough to assume that News Corp. will incorporate it into its planned digital news subscription service.

Getting to Know Mail.XML Mailing Systems Technology As mailers learn more about the USPS Intelligent Mail program that begins in May, they see two things repeated over and over in relation to the electronic documentation (eDoc) requirements for the Full-Service option: Mail.dat and Mail.XML. However, very few understand what the differences are between the two. Both specifications are developed by the International Digital Enterprise Alliance (IDEAlliance) — an industry association specializing in technology, supply chain, and best practices for the mailing, printing and publishing industries — and freely available as a service to the mailing industry. The specifications are used to share information among organizations in the mailing supply chain and the Postal Service and their structure and purpose are significantly different. In the last issue, we discussed the Mail.dat specification and answered some basic questions about what it is, some of its benefits, etc. What is XML? What is Mail.XML? Does the USPS currently support Mail.XML?

E3 2010: Hands on with Disney’s DigiComics for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch Sections: Comics-and-Graphic-Novels, Conventions, E3, Features, Gaming News, Gear, Handhelds, iPhone & iPod Touch & iPad, Previews You might think there were only console and PC games at E3 2010. Oh, how wrong you are. There were plenty of iPod Touches and iPads (secured to displays, of course) showing games and even a few apps on the exhibition floor. In the same booth as the Disney’s Epic Mickey was a small area with a half dozen iPads running a Disney DigiComics app. With it you can download Disney comics, viewing them a panel or half panel at a time, depending on the size and orientation of each panel. While Disney comics have had a shaky existence and been bopping between publishing companies, this app may help to bring it back into some people’s reading list. Even so, here are photos of a few panels as displayed on the iPad: Site [Disney DigiComics]

Ouvert à tous Les 3D XML possède une documentation publique avec un grand nombre de schémas pour s'adapter à un grand nombre d'applications.

How to Silence Vuvuzela Horns in World Cup Broadcasts @SimonSaysBleed: I dunno. Ask all the other people buying them like crazy in other countries now. Why is anyone surprised that loud football fans are loud? @SimonSaysBleed: From what I understand, they're usually used by about 10% of the people in a stadium, and far less often than people are using them now. Somewhat like air horns at a hockey game. So don't feel embarrassed for South Africa, feel embarrassed for the tourists. @SimonSaysBleed: why would you be embarrassed for SA? @SimonSaysBleed: I think the sound created by gimmicky noise makers is exciting and helps to motivate the players. Sincerely, ThunderSticks and cow bells /Anaheimed&Tampa Bayed //Rome'd
