The Backend as a Service Ecosystem Map Update & New Trends: Migration Toward the Middle Tuesday morning, before taxiing down the runway (the first time), my United Airlines flight ran a short video promoting a glorious future where dynamic mobile applications would let passengers book and change travel plans on the run. Two hours later, this vision blurred when the 757 returned to the gate in Boston, canceled the flight, and regurgitated several hundred people into the terminal. A single desk attendant stood nervously behind the desk, as the line snaked through the hall.

StackMob Ratchets Up The Competition: Makes API Calls Free, Launches A Marketplace For Third-Party Mobile Services StackMob, an end-to-end development platform for mobile applications, is today announcing the launch of the StackMob Marketplace for third-party services, as well as changes to its pricing structure for API calls.

Making 8bit Music: An Introduction To Free Chiptune Music Trackers A few months ago I wrote an article highlighting some of the best resources on the web for finding 8bit music, all manner of MOD files and the software required for playback. Today I’m going to be venturing a little deeper and digging out the tools you’ll be needing in order to create some chiptune yourself.
