Long before GPS and Google Earth, humans traveled vast distances using environmental clues and simple instruments. What is lost when technology substitutes for our innate capacity to find our way? Illustrated with 200 drawings, this narrative-part treatise, part travelogue, and part navigational history-brings our own world into sharper view.
The Xamarin tool suite, Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS, is a bridge from .NET into the world of native mobile development. These tools give C sharp developers a direct line into native Android and iOS development, allowing them to build business apps for the Google Play and iTunes app stores. This book helps a developer navigate Android and iOS architecture using .NET. Mobile development makes frequent use of traditional patterns such as MVC, MVVM, Delegates, and Singleton. Pattern-savvy readers will find familiar .NET foundations here with logical bridges into mobile platform-specific implementations. Newcomers to design patterns will find a mobile pattern guidebook. The iOS UI must still be written in Xcode. The Android UI rests on Activities. How are all of these built on a variation of the familiar MVC pattern? The reader will learn about mobile data binding and decoupling of UI and back-end logic for cross-platform code reuse. Application lifecycles on native platforms are unique as mobile and tablet apps spawn, live, pause, and die. The reader will learn how code must respond to changes in state and manage data transfer between views. Web services are the mainstay of mobile data and this is a primer for cross-platform client/service construction. It also explores background data-loading techniques and offline access using local data structures: blueprints for the mobile data layer. This comprehensive recipe and reference book addresses one of the most important and vexing problems in the software industry today: How do we effectively design and develop cross-platform native mobile applications?

When Sex and the City premiered, many were hesitant to identify as the Miranda of their social circle - after all, sarcasm, workaholism, and dubious fashion choices are rarely considered aspirational. However, in the two-plus decades since her television debut, our culture has finally caught up with this forward-thinking icon and all she represents. The truth is, Miranda Hobbes is the feminist hero that we deserve - we were all just too busy obsessing over Carrie´s corset tops to notice it at first. WE SHOULD ALL BE MIRANDAS is a celebration of a certain redheaded lawyer and the legions of fans who relate to her pragmatic, no-bullshit approach to work, love, and sex. Written by two self-proclaimed Mirandas, this humorous manifesto distils Ms. Hobbes´ core principles into a strategic guide for navigating life´s inevitable ups and downs. In it, you´ll learn to: Overcome your internalised Mirandaphobia Cope with humiliating sexual encounters Make Google Docs your bitch Dump that Skipper that you´ve been dating Embrace your bad hair days ...and so much more! With sharp, sardonic humor and nods to the series´ most iconic moments, We Should All Be Mirandas is the perfect gift for fashionistas, pop culture mavens, and every woman who has dared to eat cake out of the garbage.
´´The nonfiction novel of our moment” (Jonathan Lethem): a wide-ranging, rule-bending collection reclaiming the power of attention in an age of constant distraction´´Joshua Cohen may be America’s greatest living writer.” (The Washington Post)Named one of the Best Books of the Year by WiredOne of Granta’s Best of Young American Novelists, Joshua Cohen arrives with his first collection of nonfiction, the culmination of two decades of writing and thought about life in the digital age. In essays, memoir, criticism, diary entries, and letters - many appearing here for the first time - Cohen covers the full depth and breadth of modern life: politics, literature, art, music, travel, the media, and psychology, and subjects as diverse as Google, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, fictional animals, Gustav Mahler, Aretha Franklin, John Zorn, landscape photography, fake Caravaggios, Wikipedia, Gertrude Stein, Edward Snowden, Jonathan Franzen, Olympic women’s fencing, Atlantic City casinos, the closing of the Ringling Bros. circus, and Azerbaijan.Throughout ATTENTION, Cohen directs his sharp gaze at home and abroad, calling upon his extraordinary erudition and unrivaled ability to draw connections between seemingly unlike things to reveal to us how to live without fear in a world overflowing with information. In each piece, he projects a quality of thought that is uniquely his, and a voice as witty, profound, and distinct as any in American letters. At this crucial juncture in history, ATTENTION is a guide for the perplexed - a handbook for anyone hoping to bring the wisdom of the past into the culture of the future.Praise for ATTENTION´´Dazzling in its scope . . .

Meet the visionaries, billionaires, professors, and programmers who are using groundbreaking technology to push the limits of the human body - our senses, our intelligence, and our lifespans Once relegated to the fringes of society, transhumanism (the use of technology to enhance human intellectual and physical capability) is now poised to enter our cultural mainstream. It has found adherents in Silicon Valley billionaires Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis. Google has entered the picture, establishing a biotech subsidiary aimed at solving the problem of aging. In To Be a Machine, journalist Mark O´Connell takes a headlong dive into this burgeoning movement. He travels to the laboratories, conferences, and basements of today´s foremost transhumanists, where he´s presented with the staggering possibilities and moral quandaries of new technologies like mind uploading, artificial superintelligence, cryonics, and device implants. A contributor to Slate, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Magazine, O´Connell serves as a sharp and lively guide to the outer limits of technology in the 21st century. In investigating what it means to be a machine, he offers a surprising, singular meditation on what it means to be human. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Garnon.

Very evil...very funny. A lethal joyride into today´s new breed of technogeeks, Douglas Coupland´s novel updates Microserfs for the age of Google. Ethan Jarlewski and five coworkers are bureaucratically marooned in jPod. jPod is a no-escape architectural limbo on the fringes of a massive Vancouver game design company.The six jPodders wage daily battle against the demands of a boneheaded marketing staff, who daily torture employees with idiotic changes to already idiotic games. Meanwhile, Ethan’s personal life is shaped (or twisted) by phenomena as disparate as Hollywood, marijuana grow-ops, people-smuggling, ballroom dancing, and the rise of China. jPod´s universe is amoral and shameless - and dizzyingly fast-paced. The characters are products of their era even as they´re creating it. Everybody in Ethan´s life inhabits a moral gray zone. Nobody is exempt, not even his seemingly straitlaced parents or Coupland himself. Full of word games, visual jokes, and sideways jabs, this audiobook throws a sharp, pointed lawn dart into the heart of contemporary life. jPod is Douglas Coupland at the top of his game. 1.
