Kendo UI Delivers Packaged App Shipping in Chrome OS


Waltham, MA (PRWEB) December 03, 2012

Telerik, an end-to-end provider of software application, lifecycle and content management solutions, today announced that the latest version of Googles Chrome OS will ship with a Camera App built by Telerik. The app leverages the capabilities of Googles Packaged Apps Platform and Kendo UI, a complete front-end framework for HTML and JavaScript developers. In addition to Kendo UI becoming the first 3rd party library to power a new Chrome packaged app, Telerik has published a developer guidance showcasing how to create packaged apps for Chrome and Chrome OS using Kendo UI, along with a quick start framework designed to help developers jumpstart the process. The Kendo UI team will highlight elements of the guidance and quick start framework during the webinar Building Chrome Packaged Apps with Kendo UI on December 5 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

The Chrome packaged app platform enables developers to create powerful, standalone apps using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS. It pushes the boundaries of web standards to empower developers to build apps never before possible in the confines of a browser. Combined with Kendo UI, rich apps that rival native alternatives can quickly be created and run anywhere Chrome and Chrome OS are found.

The Camera app, shipping immediately with Chrome OS, is a full featured photo booth style application that comes with 24 real-time effects including the familiar pinch, bulge and mirror, as well as custom effects and basic face tracking. The app integrates fully with Chrome OS to give users a fast, fun way to take self-shots with their webcam.

The Camera app on Chrome OS is a great example of what can be achieved with Chrome packaged apps,” said Josh Woodward, Product Manager on the Google Chrome team. “It showcases the power of packaged apps to create fast and fun apps for everyone, and it also demonstrates to developers the ability to leverage familiar frameworks, like Kendo UI, to quickly build and publish apps for Chrome and Chrome OS.”

Kendo UI is used throughout the Camera App to deliver polished user experiences and robust application architecture. As a framework, Kendo UI is optimized for performance, ensuring the Camera app remains fast and smooth everywhere it is run. By building on Kendo UI, the app demonstrates Chrome packaged apps support for existing popular JavaScript libraries, and Kendo UIs ability to be used in complex, modern apps, pushing the boundaries of what was previously thought possible with HTML and JavaScript.

The release of the Camera App on Chrome OS was quite an achievement, said Todd Anglin, Vice President, HTML5 Web and Mobile Tools at Telerik. Packaged apps open a new chapter in what can be achieved with HTML and JavaScript. Weve worked closely with Google to build an app using Kendo UI that strictly adheres to the platform guidelines. As the first vendor with a completed shipping app, we are paving the way for the developer community to build apps for Chrome and Chrome OS with Kendo UI, while sharing best practices and a framework for additional ease-of-use.

Telerik and Google will co-host a webinar on December 5 at 2:00pm ET titled, Building Chrome Packaged Apps with Kendo UI. Attendees will learn everything necessary to get started building Chrome packaged apps with Kendo UI. Ten lucky attendees will also receive brand new Samsung Chromebooks.

      Roe Mobile Developments Audio Recorder Product, Smart Recorder, Now Available for Windows 8


      Rockville, MD (PRWEB) December 10, 2012

      Roe Mobile Developments Smart Recorder product is now available in the Windows 8 app store. It is the first full-featured audio recorder app available in the Windows store.

      Smart Recorder allows users to record meetings, class lectures, music rehearsals or even reminders and shopping lists. Smart Recorder utilizes tags to mark important points, and even includes an auto pause feature that automatically suspends the recording during periods of no sound.

      We are pleased to bring this great product to Windows 8, says Ken Roe, CEO of Roe Mobile Development. We look forward to many exciting updates. The iOS Smart Recorder has been quite successful. It has been installed on over 700,000 devices, has over 50,000 active users and generates 1,000 downloads a day.

      Roe Mobile Developments new audio recorder app features a ground up redesign of the user interface to take advantage of many of the unique features of Windows 8.

      The share, search, and settings charms are supported. One can easily email or upload recordings to Sky Drive. The search charm allows one to quickly search through a large number of recordings based on keywords in either the title or one of the labels. The settings charm features a help tab that contains comprehensive documentation on all of Smart Recorder’s features.

      The screen layout has been carefully designed to follow the new Windows 8 look and feel. A main hub page shows a listing of all the sessions created by a user. These recordings can be sorted by name, size, or date created. They can also be divided into different categories. The session screen features a Windows 8 style grid view showing all recording start and stop times, labels, and pictures, as well as a waveform view under the grid showing audio levels throughout the recording. During play back, the time marker can be moved in the waveform window to select a particular point in the recorded time.

      On screen pop-ups help first time users quickly learn how to use the basic functions of Smart Recorder. The audio recorder can play back recordings at different speeds, including two times the original recording speed, helping users skim over portions of the recording. The inclusion of pitch correction makes it easier to listen to the speech.

      Smart Recorder was also recently featured in Devhammer’s Den at http://www.devhammer.net.

        New Book Exposes Corrupt Temporal, Secular Behavior of Churches, Pastors


        Gainesville, Fla. (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

        In his new book Exposing Greed and the Religious Systems…in the Churches (published by WestBow Press), writer Terry Walters exposes the real cost of pastoral corruption.

        Was something not quite right in that recent church service or on Christian TV? Did they ask for too much money or appear to be too religious? Walters asks. This book dares to shake the very foundations of the prosperity gospel movement by both delineating Gods true way to blessings and exposing the actual methods that false ministers of excess and impress use to gain money and power in the churches.

        Exposing Greed and the Religious Systems…in the Churches offers answers to the question of why many have felt uneasy in church but didnt know precisely why. It will appeal to, as Walters says, church folk searching for the truth and any reader who has been turned off by organized religion.

        As economic conditions worsen in our society, Walters says, it is almost certain that many ministers will resort to methods even more egregious to God than those covered in this book in order to maintain their extravagant and luxurious lifestyles, and the religious systems which maintain them.

          Marcia Whites New Book Teaches Values of Acceptance and Camaraderie


          Alstead, N.H. (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

          The new illustrated childrens book The Adventures of Ragpatch: Love Lost and Found (published by Inspiring Voices) offers young readers an engaging and compelling tale of friendship and finding their place in the world that proves, as author Marcia White says, there is a place in the world for everyone.

          A scarecrow named Ragpatch is hanging in the field when Mrs. Jacobs takes him down from his perch and begins to walk toward the barn. She becomes distracted and puts him on a bench. Farmer Jacobs sees him lying on the bench, puts him into the back of his truck and takes him to the dump. This is just the start of Ragpatchs journey!

          An excerpt from The Adventures of Ragpatch:

          This was a sad day indeed for Ragpatch. Mrs. Jacob carefully laid Ragpatch on the bench in front of the barn, and she went inside to find Farmer Jacob.

          A short time later, Mr. Jacob picked up Ragpatch and threw him on top of the pile of rubbish in the back of his truck. He yelled to Mrs. Jacob and said, I will be back from the dump in an hour, then we can go pick some corn.

          The dump! He is taking me to the dump! This cant be happening, cried Ragpatch. This is the thanks I get for standing guard over the field for six yearsa trip to the dump!

          Soon Ragpatch meets a one-legged seagull named Mort and a black lamb named Baart. All three are different and lonely; they dont quite fit in. As they try to find their places in their world, they realize that they can depend on each other.

          About the Author

          Marcia White has always had a desire to write which developed from her love of reading. She has learned a great deal about love from being raised in a Christian family, being married, raising three children and enjoying visits with the grandchildren. All this comes together with imagination and dream to write a book. She and her husband, Howard, reside in Alstead, N.H., where they take time to enjoy the world around them.

            Tip Sheet for Surviving Spouse Owning California Real Property as Joint Tenant by Mark W. Bidwell


            Irvine, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

            In California husbands and wives usually own property together as joint tenants. When one spouse dies, ownership under California law passes automatically to the survivor. Mark W. Bidwell, attorney at law, provides tips on the consequences of survivor ownership in joint tenancy.

            If the surviving spouse needs to sell, refinance, gift or trust fund the real estate, the deceased spouse must first be taken off title as an owner of the real property. The deceased spouse is taken off title by an Affidavit filed with the County Recorder.

            The Affidavit is a declaration, under oath, by the surviving spouse. The surviving spouse declares the other spouse has died and attaches a certified copy of the death certificate. The affidavit is filed in the county where the real property is located. It is now of public record the surviving spouse has the authority to take sole control of the real property and may sell, borrow or change title on the property.

            An online service to prepare and record Affidavits for the surviving spouse is at http://www.DeedAndRecord.com.

            The problem remains of what happens to the real property when the surviving spouse dies. If nothing more is done the property passes to heirs through probate. Probate is the process of transferring real property from a person who had died to his or her heirs under the supervision of the Superior Court of California. Probate is costly, usually takes about one year and is open to the public.

            The best way for the surviving spouse to avoid probate is to create a living trust. Title in the real property is transferred into the trust. The surviving spouse maintains control and may sell, borrow, or gift the property. Nothing really changes while the surviving spouse is living.

            Upon the death of the surviving spouse another Affidavit is filed with the county by the successor trustee. This Affidavit is a declaration, under oath, by the successor trustee the surviving spouse has died and a certified copy of the death certificate is attached to the Affidavit.

            The successor trustee also states in the affidavit he or she has authority to act on behalf of the trust and to take control of the real property. The successor trustee can only do what is permitted by the terms of the trust. Trusts most often call for distribution to children of the deceased spouse either by sale or transfer in ownership by quit claim deed.

            A properly prepared affidavit must have a legal description so the county recorders office can add the affidavit to the public chain of title. The legal description is not the street address. The legal description has at a minimum the tract, map, block and lot number of the real estate property. County recorders will not accept affidavits without a legal description.

            Deed and Record is an online service to prepare affidavits for real property in California. This online service records affidavits it has prepared with the appropriate county recorder. Deed and Record markets through websites, primarily, DeedAndRecord.com. The owner of the websites is Mark W. Bidwell, Attorney at Law and CPA Inactive (http://www.BidwellLaw.com). Office is located at 18831 Von Karman Avenue, Suite 270, Irvine, California 92612. Phone number is 949-474-0961. Email is Mark@DeedandRecord.com.

              Sticky Fingers Songs Confused with Missing Rolling Stones Songs


              New York, New York (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

              On December 6, 2012, Rolling Stones tribute band Sticky Fingers have revealed that the eleven songs that have been circulating the Internet since July 2012 are actually songs from their original CD release titled, Like a Rolling Stone. Rough, demo-versions of the songs have been circulating the Internet for the past six months, making many Rolling Stones fans believe that the tracks were songs missing from a Stones recording session that took place in France circa 1970.

              It doesn’t take much to excite fans of classic rock when buzz about lost or stolen recording begin to circulate, but this was different. Eleven songs were being passed around the globe that sounded to many to be in fact previously unreleased songs recorded by the Rolling Stones. The origin of the eleven songs could not be traced, bringing even more intrigue to the already frenzied situation.

              As it turns out, the songs were the rough, demo versions of songs recorded by Glen Carroll and band, Sticky Fingers. Sticky Fingers has long been considered the world’s best Rolling Stones tribute band, Now, having toured for over 35 years, Sticky Fingers both looks and sounds like the Rolling Stones. It only makes sense that a record released by them would fool even the most skeptical Rolling Stones fans.

              The band is lead by lead vocalist, Glen Carroll. Originally hired to be the drummer, Glen took the vocal reigns in 1990, and has since taken control of the band and toured the globe. Plans to release a CD finally took hold in 2011, when Glen started assembling the talent. Glen Carroll looks so much like Mick Jagger, that he gets stopped in traffic and at restaurants for autographs and photo opportunities. He and band Sticky Fingers have performed in 15 countries, appeared on over 20 television shows, and most recently were the featured topic in Steven Kurutz’s book titled, Like a Rolling Stone: The Strange Life of a Tribute Band.

              In early 2012, Glen and some of the nation’s top rock & roll session players began recording the first Sticky Fingers band original album titled, Like a Rolling Stone. Staying true to the music was the goal, and because of that, Glen Carroll hired musicians who both tour and record with the Rolling Stones. I wanted the record to be mine, but also a tribute to the Rolling Stones and people like Muddy Waters who basically created modern rock & roll. To do this, I hired both Bobby Keys and Bernard Fowler, both have toured and recorded with the Stones, according to Glen.

              Before the Like a Rolling Stone CD was released, many of the rough demo tracks were being passed around between the musicians in order to hone and correct their parts. Apparently, someone got hold of the tracks and spun quite a story. Even YouTube videos were made by Rolling Stones fans claiming they had found the recordings. Even the rough demo tracks sound like the Rolling Stones. In addition to the musicians used to create the CD, the producer chosen for the project coincidentally worked with the Rolling Stones in the early seventies in France. All the parts were there to make the story believable. I hired Andy Johns to produce because he’s worked with so many legends like the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart and many others. If anyone can make a record that sounds like the Rolling Stones, it’s Andy Johns, said Glen.

              The CD Like a Rolling Stone can be bought on CDBaby.com and iTunes.
