Código abierto del navegador Isis de HP lleva 40,000 descargas





Hace tiempo HP dijo que su sistema operativo webOS está en proceso para ser código abierto (Open webOS)en busca de que terceros le den vida y forma a un ecosistema digital fallido.

Open webOS se supone que estará disponible en septiembre de este año. Aún así HP ya está liberando cosas para que la gente vaya trabajando en sus proyectos. Uno de los más recientes fue el código fuente de Isis, el navegador  de webOS, el cual desde su salida se ha descargado 40,000 veces.

En caso de que estés interesado en Isis, debes descargarlo de la página del proyecto, puedes seguir el blog de HP webOS para noticias, actualizaciones, mientras que apoyo técnico e información se encuentra en el github de Isis.

Matias Duarte, the head of user experience at Android, aims to change the way developers design for the platform.

LAS VEGAS — Matias Duarte is a man who loves a challenge.

It’s part of why he took his current job at Google, leading the Android operating system team as head of user experience. In a nutshell, he is the man tasked with making sure Android looks, feels, and performs as smoothly as possible. And it is not an easy job.

“Designing an open mobile operating system — and doing it really well — that’s never happened before in human history,” Duarte tells me, leaning forward in his chair and sipping from a cup of tea as we spoke in the garish hallway of a hotel on the Vegas strip earlier this week. He is visibly excited, seemingly up to the task when I note how big the challenge is. “I’ve done the closed thing before,” he says, referring to his days at Palm working on the webOS operating system. “And I’d like to think I did it well.” Seguir leyendo “Exclusive: Google Launches Style Guide for Android Developers”

Stacks: Next-gen multi-tasking

For example, webOS 2.0 automatically stacks cards for you when it makes sense, and you can also drag and drop cards to manage stacks yourself.
