Java vs. JavaScript: What’s the Difference?

Java vs. JavaScript: What’s the Difference?

Everyone assumes that because JavaScript has “Java” in its name they are somehow related. While most programmers groan at this coupling and many even feel that the name confusion is part of a marketing gimmick, the history of the two programming languages did intersect for a brief moment in time during the early days of Netscape. The evolution of the two languages took such wildly different paths from that point forward that the common joke is that Java is to JavaScript as ham is to a hamster. But if you’re reading this article, you’re probably interested in a more useful explanation, so let me compare the two.

How to Make a Good First Time Impression for Your Apps

App store optimization refers to the process of making your app more visible to people. But what will make the new users download your app? Is it just bringing the app in front of the users?

23andMe is finally allowed to tell you if you have the genes for Parkinson’s

23andMe is finally allowed to tell you if you have the genes for Parkinson’s

The Food and Drug Administration finally gave 23andMe a long sought-after green light today to sell to consumers genetic tests and their accompanying health risk reports for up to 10 diseases, including late-onset Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. In November 2013, the FDA put a moratorium on 23andMe’s ability to provide any health information associated with its personal genome testing. Then a sliver of hope opened up in October 2015, when the FDA allowed the company to provide health and carrier status for those who might pass on a rare genetic disease. Shortly before that, and as sort of a trial run before opening up the floodgates, 23andMe was able to test for a genetic carrier disease called Bloom Syndrome, a rare recessive gene disorder characterized by shorter height and a predisposition to develop cancer. --Collected from-- techcrunch

Foxconn fourth-quarter net profit estimated T$68.77 billion, up 30 percent from year ago

Taiwan's Foxconn, the world's largest contract electronics maker and a key Apple Inc supplier, on Friday reported 30 percent growth in fourth quarter net profit from a year ago, defying expectations for a decline. The profit was likely to have been boosted by solid bookings for Apple's bigger-sized iPhone 7 models, which Foxconn, formally known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co assembles, analysts said. Net profit in the final three months of 2016 ended four quarters of year-on-year declines to reach T$68.77 billion ($2.26 billion), up from T$52.93 billion in the fourth quarter of 2015, according to a Reuters calculation based on Foxconn's full year 2016 results.

Microsoft is killing Access Services for SharePoint Online in April 2018

Microsoft announced earlier this week that it will discontinue Access Services for SharePoint Online in 2018. Leading up to that, people will no longer be able to launch new Access apps in SharePoint Online, beginning in June. “We no longer recommend Access Services for new apps. This feature will be retired from Office 365,” the Access and SharePoint teams wrote in a March 27 blog post. Microsoft is now encouraging people to start using its codeless app building tool PowerApps instead.
