iPhone OS 4.0, some Customer Development and Android-based RobotsApril 8, 2010
Yes I have to link to the iPhone OS 4.0 announcement today. The new OS will support multitasking of some sort, which means my main reason for predicting the failure of the iPad is now unfounded. There’s bound to be a lot of discussion around the new OS, which I will inevitably read and post about. Some other interesting stuff popped up today:
- Steve Blank explains the difference between a business plan and a business model. (Hint: he thinks the former is a waste of time.)
- Some guys have developed a robot called Truckbot that runs on Android. They have more videos and interesting info over at cellbots.com.
Chrome OS build update: I’m in day three now. I made the mistake of not compiling with a “local user” account enabled, so I have to go back a few steps. It’s been interesting though so far, and the guys in #chromium-os on IRC have been very helpful.
