John Nunemaker releases his super-simple way to implement permissions in a Rails app. I love how this does away with a complicated role system and just deals with whether or not a user can do specific action. Simplicity at its finest.
Quick and easy way to test a Sinatra app with RSpec.
Daniel Dilger goes through exactly why Flash just won’t work on a touchscreen device. I mentioned this a little while back–it’s totally unreasonable to think that applications and games developed for a mouse and keyboard can be easily ported to a completely new interface.
I got a sneak peek of Flash running on a Motorola handset here at the show. It crashed.
I really hope I’ll be able to disable Flash once it comes to the Droid. Performance is going to be terrible.
