The finale of StartUps Silicon Valley aired last night. Interesting little show, but much too much drama, especially surrounding one particular person on the show, that will remain unnamed here.
Here’s an article that talks about the show’s premiere. I’m pretty sure this show will be on rotation on Bravo if you want to see it, even though this season has ended.
If they do another season, I’d like to see a new set of folks in the show that they follow around. This season was too much “get into a situation where one person blows everything up”.
The article “How to Become an App Store Millionaire: Make a Hit App, and Don’t Make Anything Else” – like Steve Martin’s advice of how to become a millionaire and not pay taxes “First, get a million dollars”. Both are easier said than done.

Well, the big announcement is tomorrow, and everyone expects it’ll be the the iPad 3. From the rumors, it might even be called the iPad HD.
So a couple of questions…
How are developers going to deal with the confusion of all the apps for the iPad that have the tag HD?
How are iPad graphics going to look on a much higher resolution screen?
How much memory is it going to have and how much more graphics processing power is it going to require?

I went to nine JavaOne conferences. When Sun was running it, they held it in Moscone in San Francisco. Oracle has taken over, and they’re going to be in … The Hilton San Francisco at Union Square.
I don’t know what it was about having it at Moscone. Just don’t think it’ll be the same.
