The 1st Edition Application Cook-off judging panel process is finally complete! It was not an easy process as debate ensued from the start. First, our esteemed engineer Angel Roman, Queen of QA Heather Z, and myself nominated ourselves onto the judging panel. We joined orignial judges Peter, Ken, and Dorsey (the receptionist upstairs) and immediately took to different sides of the fence.

Early in the evening, Heather lobbied the judges hard to garner votes for her SimpleServlet Application. In her app, a spelling error was corrected and a darn cute dog picture was displayed. However, as a judge and full time Bug employee, her entry was disqualified.

A real battle began to brew between the home security submission and GPS logger.

We loved Koolatrons GPSLogger_1.1. The App. borrows from an earlier Finspring application and calculates movement from the GPS so the map is updated, with great zoom and tiling. The functionality, usefulness, and general sweetness was admired. Three judges claimed Kool a hands-down winner.

However, the other three judges held strong in their love for the ground up, clean and security applications. The soup to nuts, clean execution carried big points with the other half of the panel. Because finsprings’ BUGer was submitted 3 days prior to jman’s BugSecurity, fins submission rose to the top of the judges list. Unanimous votes for Jman as an Honory Mention.

After hours debating, the judges could not persuade anyone to the other side. Swearing and shouting, and even a COD team death match, could not settle the score. At 3:00 a.m., a split decision was announced. 1st Application Cook-Off Winner is a split.

Winners Club
co 1st Place: Finsprings – Security System
co 1st Place: Koolatron’s – GPS Logger
Honorary Mention: Jman’s BugSecurityCam

Congratulations! And thanks for all the hard work. We appreciate it. The world of soon to be Bug users appreciates it. We’ll work on shipping the prizes asap, but bragging can start immediately.

Good work.

Fin, I think you know what this means.

I would like to thank the judges for their considered deliberations.

Also, I just received a very nice unique t-shirt from the buglabs folks for posting the first community app. If you can stand to look at my ugly mug I posted pictures at:
http://davidfindlay.org/weblog/files/buglabs_shirt.php

So being a geek does pay after all ;-)

I'm finally making it out of release crunch mode on a project at work and have an idea for a bug app I want to get onto: a location aware to-do list where you'd have multiple to-do lists like "grocery", "cake", "work" etc. You'd put in the location of your supermarket/bakery/office (either as coords by hand or actually go there and press a button to save the coords). Then any time you were near one of your saved places the bug could show you your to-do list for that place. I read about something similar in an article in Linux Journal with the OpenMoko guy, so I'm not claiming it as an original idea or anything, but it seems like it could be a fun and useful app for the bug.

Hopefully I'll get onto that very soon. Any plans for a community app target to follow on from the security one?

Cheers,

Fins – the To Do App is a great idea. I need that. I could see it quickly evolving (with more Bug tools/community) to the point where you could put in items you need or the type of store (nails/hardware, color copies/FedEx, milk/grocery) and it would notify you when you are near any place where you could likely buy your item. I’ve needed an L bracket for a week and didn’t know there was a hardware store a block from my route home. (I would like notification to be by a somewhat gentle electric shock module). It could plan your route home for you.

I saw the photo of the shirt! It looks good – but the warning is appreciated.

Yeah it could end up being pretty handy if we can come up with a good way of entering data on the bug. I posted the first go at the app, but without that data entry its use is pretty limited. We also need to figure out how LCD access is going to be mediated amongst apps and we need an api for the piezo buzzer so it can shock you, or at least annoy you at 60Hz.

Was waiting til Monday to do this, but hey, it's the weekend, why not? :)

We're going to be sending two BUGbundles out, one for you, one for Koolatron. So you get the BUGbase and all four shipping modules, and we'll send you the "von Hippel" module when it's ready!

Sorry for the long, long wait - we had planned to do this some time ago, but the snag we hit early on in manufacturing basically nixed our whole approach. But, we're back up and running now...

Isn’t it funny how we www.coachfactorystoreec.com/ Coach Factory Store always want what we can’t have? The girl with the round and pert backside wishes that her rear were 5 times smaller. Meanwhile, the girl with the non existent posterior wishes to achieve a larger butt. Well, if the grass is greener on the other side, just water yours! If you’ve got a small behind, you can create the illusion of a larger one with butt enhancing jeans. Here’s how to do it. Look for light weight denim – This material is very stiff and heavy. If you try to stuff a flat butt into denim jeans, it will only create a flatter looking behind. A little stretch goes a long way – Your butt enhancing jeans should additionally contain some stretch. A mixture of 98 percent cotton and 2 percent lycra is best. This combination of lycra and cotton, especially when it’s in a nice tight-weave fabric that’s fitted through the hip and thigh area will help lift your buttocks. Too much lycra and your jeans may start to ripple like a pair of leggings. If there’s not enough cotton content, there won’t be enough structure to hold you up. It’s all in the pockets – The most effective trick for creating the illusion of a bigger butt is to choose jeans with flap pockets. The added bulk of the flap will enhance and add dimension to your tiny tush. True Religion is notoriously famous for their flap pocket designs. You can also try Hudson, Rock & Republic, Frankie B and Paige for addition flap pocket styles. Pocket placement – If you’re not a fan of flap pockets, or if you’ve already bought too many of them, you can also try denim with regular pockets. Be sure to aim for a pair with smaller pockets that sit higher and this will help make your rear look lifted. Cut is also important – Look for jeans with a slight tapering at www.coachfactoryonliness.com/ Coach Factory Online the knee, such as a straight leg or skinny style. This cut will make your bum look a bit larger in comparison to the rest of your body. Great styles to try are True Religion Billy, Julie or Stella, Siwy Harmah or Rose, and Hudson Emily or Paige. How low can you go – Actually, you don’t want to go too low when it comes to the jean rise. The goal is to project more, not less. A pair of low rise denim will only reduce the size of your rear. Instead, opt for a pair with a medium rise. Color me right – Since dark colors minimize, dark denim and indigo will create a slimming effect. You do not want this kind of effect on your barely there behind! Try to find light colored or medium blue denim. Grey is very flattering and will also work. Like a great bra, butt enhancing jeans can also lift and www.coachfactoryoutletusa.com/ Coach Factory Outlet separate what little you have. So it wasn’t in your genes to have a nice, round bottom. Big deal. Be happy with what you’ve got and just improvise!
