Has UI and UX Innovation Plateaued?
As speech control starts to replace touch interfaces in some apps, it`s worth pondering whether new UIs will make for a better UX -- or just more confusion.
Cracking the Carrier and Vendor Market
Want to get your app in the hands of a lot of people really fast? Convince an operator or vendor to preload it onto their device. One developer explains what it takes.

Power Your Apps With GPU Programming
Harness more processing power for your apps by tapping into the GPU. A computer`s CPU traditionally carries the application workload, but developers can now tap a programming approach that engages the graphics processing unit (GPU) as well. The concept, referred to as General Purpose GPU, or GPGPU, essentially makes the GPU available for computing chores other than graphics. The ability to offload tasks from overtaxed CPUs can boost application performance. In addition, writing programs to leverage more resources make for improved energy management -- tasks can be targeted toward the parts of a system that consume less power.
Q&A with Creative Supervisor of Replacement Animation & Engineering Brian McLean
Part 4 of a four part interview series with ParaNorman's creators
With ParaNorman, we have made the first stop-motion movie that uses a 3D Color Printer. The technique is similar, but what the 3D Color Printer affords you to do is to build color into the model. ParaNorman is not only a wonderful story but it is the most advanced stop motion film of all time. I think the audience members will ultimately get so involved in the story that the will forget that they are actually watching a hand crafted stop motion movie. Only after the movie is over do they have time to think "whoa how in the world did they do that?"
Q&A with Animation Supervisor Brad Schiff
Part 3 of a four part interview series with ParaNorman's creators
I have many proud moments from this film. Most of them revolve around the success of the animation team. While it seems like it's all fun and games, what we do is incredibly difficult and taxing...mentally and physically. It takes great skill, concentration and confidence to animate at this level. Witnessing the animators on this film shoot the greatest shots of their careers on ParaNorman has proven to be most rewarding to me.
What to Watch: July 20, 2012
From, this is the Financial News Network, your source for the latest business news. Here's a few things to watch for in the financial world today July 20.General Electric (NYSE:GE) will be one to watch this morning after announcing better-than-expected second quarter earnings. The company posted an EPS of $0.38, just above analyst expectations of $0.37 a share. Revenue for the quarter rose 2.5% to $36.5 billion, just below analyst expectations of $36.8 billion. The largest U.S. conglomerate didn't change is full-year profit forecast of double-digit growth. The rise in profit they said was due to strong sales of railroad locomotives and electric turbines.Second quarter earnings and outlook for Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) came out yesterday, making this stock one to keep an eye on today. The internet company posted an EPS of $10.12, above analyst estimates of $10.04. Revenue for the quarter rose 12% to $8.36 billion, just $50 million shy of what analysts were expecting. The interesting thing to note is Google's advertising report. The internet giant's cost per click, that's the amount the advertiser pays Google per click, fell 16%, more than what was expected. And even though the company got a 42% rise in paid clicks, this could indicate some changes in online advertising.Finally, big news on the DirecTV (NYSE:DTV) and Viacom (NYSE:VIA.B)dispute. The two companies have resolved on a solution, now preventing 17 channels from being cut off for DirecTV customers. The dispute started because Viacom increased the fees associated with the distribution of their content. DirecTV said the request would be a 30% increase equal to over $1 billion over 5 years. After DirecTV stopped carrying the channels, Viacom shutdown internet streaming of many of its shows, making DirecTV customers even more frustrated. However, a deal was finally stuck, much to DirecTV's dismay. Terms of the deal were not disclosed but make sure you watch both these stocks in today's session.Those were a few things to watch out for here on the Financial News Network.
