‘Out on the Net': Curated Technology and Design News by Architosh
Every week we highlight the stories—here below—that we think our readers will find interesting and extend our brand new News page further. Some stories are “on focus” with Architosh, and some stories are just interesting technology and design news. We hope you enjoy the curated listings.
Recently Microsoft released a new Visual Studio Code editor for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows, marking a big departure from the company’s past of only making its very good developer tools for Windows. Part of the reason the company is doing this is because developers writing modern apps for the cloud and mobile are using simple code editors purpose built for this type of work, rather than bigger IDE (integrated development environments). There is also progress happening around open sourcing the .NET Core (which will take that platform cross-platform).
Last week Apple CEO Tim Cook was in China, cutting deals and making friends in the largest boom economy in the largest populated country in the world. The Next Web says Apple is crushing Samsung. Cool! We don’t like copycats here at Architosh. And perhaps nobody should ignore the fact that today’s TV situation is crap, and will continue to be so if cable providers continue to serve us their over-controlling options. Apple may disrupt the TV world in less than four weeks, says Fortune magazine.
Also updated on Architosh today are some outbound Reviews we like…you can find them on our new Reviews page. As stated there, Architosh will be working on a lot more reviews, including those for iPad, throughout 2015.
