Would be nice if the dates in the selection range were highlighted, and unselectable dates (eg. later than the end date in left calendar, earlier than start date in right calendar.) were grayed out.

I'm surprised these companies didn't give up and start selling in other countries, like Canada or the UK, to begin with.

Hey! What's the fun in that? :P

I agree with most of this issues, but it sounds like his editor doesn't have auto import and jump to definition like Eclipse.

eg complaint about nested packages. (not that I agree that this is a necessary class): instead of MuffinMail.MuffinHash.MuffinHash, type MuffinHash and have your editor add: from MuffinMail.MuffinHash import MuffinHash.

Tools to reduce the burden of tautology are workarounds. You can rely on tools to make the worst design/language less painful, but it's not an argument against avoiding tautology.

Wow, genius. Good point, it doesn't need to be wireless to look good.

That's why I find it's much better to find and follow someone with similar tastes to you that posts a lot on chowhound or other forums.

Never really got Yelp. Taste in food is too subjective to bother with aggregate data.

He takes the time to link to "patent medicine" and "swamp root" but not to a single TED talk illustrating his point? Lame.

I got about halfway through the thing before I gave up trying to find such an example and decided to read through the comments for insight.

Haven't looked into it, but supposedly with BB6+ you can make apps with HTML5/JS. I switched back from iPhone for the bold 9900. It's come a long way.

If you're not familiar, it's definitely worth checking out WebWorks (https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/html5/). Even though it is advertised to work on BB5+ it's only really worth considering at 6+.

Also, definitely worth a look is bbUI.js (https://github.com/blackberry/bbUI.js/). It's still very much beta, but RIM are doing a lot of the UI hardwork for you; without it you end up with a white screen and have craft the UI yourself. It's a bit like jQTouch for BlackBerry.

Hi edlea, how flexible/complete is it in terms of API compared to native Java? (RIMlets) And how's the performance of the resulting app? (e.g. is it sluggish like PhoneGap's?)

Wait, so your saying your devs aren't allowed to listen to music through their headphones? Inconceivable.

"Don't make me think" is a pretty good book on this topic.
