 Thu, 18 Sep 2014 21:14:00 GMT Larry Ellison steps down as Oracle's CEO
Larry Ellison has agreed to step down as the chief executive officer at Oracle, ending one of the most entertaining and profitable runs for a leader in business history. Oracle announced Ellison's departure via a press release delivered on Thursday afternoon after the close of U.S. financial markets. The company said that Ellison will remain chairman of Oracle's board and take on the role of chief technology officer. Mark Hurd and Safra Catz, both presidents at Oracle, will each inherit the CEO title. Catz will remain as chief financial officer as well. The "master"mind behind the onerous and despicable Java/Android/API patent troll lawsuit versus Google, in which Oracle is trying to actively, willingly, and knowingly cause great harm to developers all over the world. Coincidentally, he is a close, personal friend of Steve Jobs. Good riddance.
 Thu, 18 Sep 2014 20:17:15 GMT Google will publish addresses of Android devs in Play Store
Google is set to institute a new policy in the Play Store, and it has some developers up in arms. A message in the developer console (seen below) has appeared asking developers to add a physical address to their account profile. For those offering paid apps and in-app purchases, this is mandatory as of September 30th. Failing to do so could result in Mountain View pulling the apps. The notice points out that this address will be visible on the app details page for all users of the Play Store. Publishing the addresses of every Android developer with paid applications or in-application purchases, online, for all to see? Is there anyone who thinks this is anything other than a terrible, terrible idea?
 Wed, 17 Sep 2014 21:12:14 GMT iOS 8, thoroughly reviewed
In-depth iOS 8 review at Ars. With this release, Apple is trying to make additions that developers and power users want without upsetting people who come to iOS specifically because of its consistency and simplicity. It's telling that just about every major iOS 8 feature can be disabled or ignored, and that big transformative features like third-party extensions are hidden from view by default. A surface-level glance at iOS 8 suggests an operating system that isn't all that different from iOS 7. Look just a little deeper, though, and you'll see just how different it is. As someone who finds Android the least crappy mobile operating system (by a very, very narrow margin), I see little in iOS 8 (or the new iPhones, for that matter) to convince me otherwise. The additions are very welcome for iOS users, but it's nothing we haven't seen before; nothing that makes me go - yes, this gives iOS the edge it needs (for me). Not that it matters - iOS, the iPhone, and Apple are doing just fine without massive hordes of Android users making the jump. If feels like to me the new iPhones and iOS 8 are here to consolidate their existing market - not to expand it at the cost of the competition. News   [more] [xml]
