Jeremy McAnally wrote a little ebook and that ebook earned him $40000 a year. Unbelievable, yeah it is. But there always existed a category of audience who will always pay for great content. Finding the audience and zeroing in on the content they want is the real trick. Writing books are a hard business since it takes a lot of planning and actual typing out the words. So now Jeremy wants to share his experiences and expertise in writing ebooks through his new little (100 pages)book titled Authoring Ebook . If you are thinking of writing such a book and also earn a handsome amount, then this book is for you.

It costs $29 and is available in various formats like pdf, ePub and mobi.

Now buy the book Authoring ebooks and start selling your technical masterpiece. Who knows I may want to buy your copy.


LG P-500 comes with Froyo (Android 2.2) installed out of the box. But Flash Player 10.1 or AIR cannot be installed on it as its CPU architecture is based on ARMv6 and not on ARMv7.
So to run Adobe Flash and Adobe AIR in android devices two things are required i.e. Android 2.2 and ARMv7 based CPU.
So beware of this phone. Do not buy this Phone if you want to run Flash in it even if the on the box it says Adobe Flash Player 10.1 is pre-installed.

While trying to installing Ruby 1.9.2 using rvm, it was giving make error. So I checked the makeerror.log. It pointed to some readline error.
After searching through the web for a solution I hit upon the following link

Finally the solution is to install readline properly as given in rvm documentation
Also do not forget to update rvm itself and reload subsequently.
Hope this helps.

The relaxation on the restriction on acceptance of apps made with third part tools ( read Flash CS5) has made using Flash CS5 suddenly lucrative. This means more sales of Flash CS5 for Aobe, more sales of developer license for Apple and hordes of translated Flash app for app store reviewers to review. I think Lee can continue to produce more tutorials on Iphone app development.

But more importanly we also need strongrer guideline on iPhone App development from Adobe.Like it or not Adobe has to work more hard to showcase best practices, development skills, even coding samples if they want Flash CS5 apps to succeed like no other. The reason is it is damn easy to build apps and games in Flash with few lines of code than to sit and worry about how each object created is going to be garbage collected.

One way to achieve this is to extend the Link Button class to display underline on mouse over event.

// code begins


 import mx.controls.LinkButton;

 public class ULinkButton extends LinkButton
  public function ULinkButton()
   this.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OVER, showUnderline)
   this.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_OUT, clearUnderline);
  private function showUnderline(evt:MouseEvent):void
     this.setStyle(“textDecoration”, “underline”);
   private function clearUnderline(evt:MouseEvent):void
     this.setStyle(“textDecoration”, “none”);

// code ends

The above class extends the the link button component and makes it to listen for mouse over and mouse out events and then sets the textDecoration property to either display underline or not.
