I was recently contacted by the marketing team from Packt Publishing and asked if I could write a review for one of their new ebooks, so here it is!
This book gives a brief yet comprehensive overview of some of the processes you can follow to improve your applications chance of working on the varying versions of android that are currently in existence.
Having developed apps that work perfectly fine on my Galaxy S2 2.3.3, only to find they don’t work on a hardware identical S2 with 4.0, I certainly feel the pain of OS fragmentation!
I’ve just finished reading the third instalment in Steven King’ masterpiece fantasy series, and I must conclude each instalment in the series just gets better and better.
If you don’t want to know about the plot, then don’t read this part. The book picks up a few weeks after the previous, with the trio making their way from the beach inland.
They soon discover that there are multiple doors in Roland’s’ land, all interconnected via a “beam”, when they encounter a new door they realise they must travel along this path, and where the paths all meet, lies the dark tower.
I’ve got a habit of deciding which books to purchase by how good the covers are, or by entrusting what is written on the back of the book, this time I followed this tradition.
I’ve been a fan of traditional zombie stories for some time now, and by traditional I mean “proper” zombies, slow dumb ones, not these fast running zombies of recent films.

After much searching, I was finally able to locate the Andromeda Galaxy last weekend, also know as M31. You can quite clearly see a band running from the top to the bottom, this is the band of the Milky Way, our own galaxy
I’ve done the red route a couple of times this year, its a really nice ride, and contrary to the Forestry Commissions comment of it being “taxing and difficult”, its actually quite tame.
The route itself is about 6 miles, or 11 miles if you decide to take the extra loop. I did the full 11 miles in just under 2 hours, but that was a pretty casual ride with several stops for water.
