Cello - Higher level programming in C

tagged in: development, C

The high level stucture of Cello projects is inspired by Haskell, while the syntax and semantics are inspired by Python and Obj-C. Cello isn’t about Object Orientation in C, but I hope that with Cello I’ve turned C into something of a dynamic and powerful functional language which it may have once been.
Although the syntax is pleasant, Cello isn’t a library for beginners. It is for C power users, as manual memory management doesn’t play nicely with many higher-order concepts. Most of all Cello is just a fun experiment to see what C would look like when Hacked to it’s limits.

A nice experiment taking C to a whole other level.

tagged in: tech, iOS, hardware

After the Leap Motion ‘s here’s another device that promises a whole other level of possibilities, this time to iOS applications.

Sensus is a smartphone case that introduces touch technology to the back and right side of a protective case.

I’m patiently waiting for the end of May to see if I can get my hands in one of those. Imagine all the things you can do with it…

How I ended up with Mac

tagged in: linux, mac, switch

To me, the fragmentation of Linux as a platform, the multiple incompatible distros, and the incompatibilities across versions of the same distro were my Three Mile Island/Chernobyl.

Without noticing, I stopped turning on the screen for my Linux machine during 2012. By the time I moved to a new apartment in October of 2012, I did not even bother plugging the machine back and to this date, I have yet to turn it on.

I believe this pretty much sums it up.
