Subversive vs. Subclipse

By Doug SchaeferOne of the most common Google searches I see in my Feedjit log is from people looking for help in the whole Subversive versus Subclipse debate.

CDT 6.0 M5 is Available, BTW

By Doug SchaeferI've been "nose to the grindstone" since the holiday break getting our Wind River Installer out the door, twice. But the good news is that the CDT contributors have been very busy working on CDT 6.0 while I wasn't looking very hard. I have been waiting for the C/C++ IDE Package for M5 to be built. In the…

Eclipse in the Clouds?

By Doug SchaeferI'm not going to say much with this one. I'll just refer you to the comments people are adding to Boris's blog entry on his work with Mozilla to get an experimental IDE running in a browser with an Eclipse-based server back-end.

Oddly, only a few announcements…

Will the Software Stack Make the Market for Mobile Internet Devices?

By Jason WhitmireI love the mobile industry because everyone, even my cat, has somehow turned into an industry sage, predicting that just about anything can and will happen in mobile as the dark clouds collect on the economic horizon.  Are there any bright spots (to use an overused analogy this week) left in mobile after we hear of precipitous drops…

An ARM on Family Day

By Doug SchaeferIt's "Family Day" here in Ontario, Canada, and while my one son is over at his buddy's house and my other son is watching game trailers and my wife is out for lunch with the girls, I'm sitting here enjoying the day off. I'm sure we'll do something family-ish later today...Anyway, I just read about TI's new family…

Many of the models there already have multiple processors. For example an ARM processor for applications, a DSP for baseband and a voice and video accelerator for the multi-media…

E6500 Suspend Problem Solved

By Doug GaffI've had a breakthrough on my suspend issues. It seems that the Dell Connection Manager Service was causing the suspend problem. As a reminder, I have the 5530 HSPA AT&T card.
