LBK Post 064 Corona Lua iPhone SDK

iPhone And Android Programming 
With Corona SDK

Wingman: "The Cold Hard Facts:"

The following is Not Wingman 
"Finally, I checked out Corona SDK. It seems promising, and the language one writes in, Lua, seems very easy to learn. It’s related to Actionscript, so those who program in Flash and AIR can use it with little help. Also, the language seems easy enough to learn that just about anyone can pick it up. The one drawback is the need for at yearly subscription of almost $400 to submit your apps, on top of the Apple Developer fee of $99. But the good thing is that you can create an app with one set of code, and publish it for the iPhone, iPad, 
and any Android platform."

LBK Post 062 Verizon adds 872,000 Smart-Phone Subscribers


Verizon Communications Inc. on Tuesday said it attracted more than half a million

Smart-phone subscribers in the latest quarter, showing strength even before it starts selling the iPhone in February.



Verizon iPhone to Get $30 Unlimited Data Plan

It appears that the Verizon iPhone is going to have another advantage over AT&T’s version of the device when it launches next month: an unlimited data plan.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the company will offer customers a $30 per month plan with no data restrictions. AT&T — which dumped its unlimited data option for new customers last year — currently offers 2GB of data for $25 per month (though some customers had unlimited 
plans grandfathered in).

A Brief Glimpse of Nokia's Popularity Outside the Western World

It's easy to forget just how different the customs of other nations are. While Americans carry dogs around in handbags, Koreans eat them. In England, we gurn; and in Spain, they throw tomatoes. We're a world of completely disparate customs -- yet somehow we can't fathom that Nokia and the Symbian OS could be ahead of Apple and Google in the smartphone market.
