Do you continuously carry your phone in that hand -- or, do you sometimes put that phone in your pocket, purse, satchel, backpack, on the table, on the desk ... ?Two points:The watch has to be within >4-8 inches of the phone for NFC to initiate a connectionIf the phone is off, the NFC in the watch will use additional power to wake up the phoneAs I explained in an earlier post, BLE is a much better solution (faster, greater distance, less power).
First, apologies for my selective quoting and clipping -- I tried to preserve the original context ...I have some questions about current enterprise apps for mobile -- whether smart phones, tablets or mobile computers.@Relic and @Marvin -- you both seem to have current or recent experience in this area ... but anyone else with enterprise IT experience, feel free to enlighten -- I really do want to understand this.Question 1:From the posts quoted above, it appears that ...
From Ken Burns' Civil War series: A week before the battle of Bull Run, Sullivan Ballou, a major in the 2nd Rhode Island Volunteers, wrote home to his wife, Sarah, in Smithfield. My very dear Sarah: The indications are very strong that we shall move in a few days - perhaps tomorrow. Lest I should not be able to write you again, I feel impelled to write lines that may fall under your eye when I shall be no more. Sarah, my love for you is deathless, it seems to bind me...

Here's a real-life example of a sophisticated client-server app that I recently beta tested. They were doing things today, that we'd never do back in 1997 with a 4800 baud modem.The app is a business app that is roughly analogous to a multiplayer game -- where each player has a location, some assets, and status. Whenever a player changes anything, his complete status is sent to the server where a db is updated and the updated status of all players is pushed to each...
Thanks for that -- simple honesty ...I've added it to the remembrances I've jotted down over time -- it gives me great comfort to review them when things are going wrong.Native American PrayerI give you this one thought to keep -I am with you still - I do not sleep.I am a thousand winds that blow,I am the diamond glints on snow,I am the sunlight on ripened grain,I am the gentle autumn rain.When you awaken in the morning’s hush,I am the swift, uplifting rushof quiet birds...
I suspect they will -- and for Android, too!
Yes, but the HTML 5 solution uses a lot of bandwidth -- sending down the wire:verbose CSSverbose Javascriptverbose XML or JSON (usually as web services)verbose HTMLimageslinkscookiesmultiple connectionsParaphrasing US Senator, rtd Fritx Hollings:"Day's a whole lotta' bandwidth consuming' goin' on out dare"Now, off to have some raclettes
I suspect your enterprise experience is a lot more current than mine -- when I left IBM in 1980 there was no web.I retired in 1989, and didn't touch a computer again until 1997 ... To get myself current, I taught myself JavaScript -- and implemented a web site with a shopping cart entirely in JavaScript.Later Perl, then ColdFusion which was built atop Java.I haven't done any for pay development since my wife Lucy died, suddenly, unexpectedly in 2001.So, I'm a dilettante...
Since some others are doing it, here's my OT post for this thread:
