All developers don't need to buy in ...But, say, Apple developers ... or Apple/IBM developers targeting Apple mobile devices ... or IT developers targeting Apple Mobile Devices ... If you look at it, most web server-side application programs are written in Java, PHP, Perl, ColdFusion.JavaScript (or equivalent scripting language), etc. ...These programs are mingled with and generate markup (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XML, JSON) that is sent to the client.The client...

Last week my youngest grandson's iPad 2 acted up -- and I can't turn of FindMyPhone to reset it ...The older grandson wants a Mac laptop in addition to his iMac and iPad 2 ...Then I saw an add for a new Logitech iDevice KB ... I bought 3 of them, Ordered an...
