A few days ago I told SIRI to remind me to order some irrigation supplies for the garden this summer and got this:
My youngest son frequently likes to clean the dirt from between his toes. During a recent cleaning session he asked me (out of the blue and with a straight face): “Daddy, if all you had to eat was the dirt from between your toes, would you eat it?”
He likes to take pictures on the iPod Touch, and he sometimes gets himself; I think he probably does this by accidentally engaging the rear-facing camera. Anyway, here’s one he took recently. (Maybe he was thinking about eating the dirt from between his toes.)
Yesterday I attended the Embarcadero XE2 conference in Arlington, Virginia. I’m still trying to determine if it would be worthwhile to upgrade from Delphi 2006. I really like the LiveBindings implementation and FireMonkey, but I didn’t hear a single reference to MVC. I also asked if they have the capability to define the object model and then migrate it into a database schema automatically as you can do with Django/Python, and the answer was No. If they would implement this easy database creation functionality that is available via Django, as well as Better GUI Separation and Abstraction , i.e. MVC, then the upgrade decision would be easy.
