Partfoundry confirmed to be making GPS module for iPhone

December 17, 2007

From IntoMobile: “Partfoundry confirmed to be making GPS module for iPhoneWith the TomTom GPS iPhone module’s future in serious doubt, it seemed like the beautifully huge multi-touch screen in the iPhone would never see its full glory as a GPS receiver. Lo and behold, partfoundry has taken up the task of bringing a legit iPhone GPS plug-in module to market. “

Gosh it looks ugly. Pre-order price is $89.


Lisp lives

December 13, 2007

In the 1990’s, I was the lead developer for a fairly large Lisp project, a simulation environment for animal behavior and habitat usage. I had a great time on that project, and I still miss working in Lisp (although Cocoa is almost as fun and almost as productive).

I was very happy to see this new survey of active Common Lisp implementations by Daniel Weinreb. It’s nice to see that good old Franz is still around, and I may yet get that old animal simulation code running under Mac OS X with Clozure’s OpenMCL.
