The Intel Compute Stick provides a full desktop experience in an ultra-portable HDMI dongle form factor. It’s like Google Chromecast, but an entire PC instead of just a web browser. I tested both the $150 Windows 8 version and the new $110 Ubuntu version.
The Intel Compute Stick (L) alongside an apple product (R).
TAP TAP TAP. IS THIS THING ON?
The HDMI end goes into a display, the power goes into an outlet, (more...)
In my former post I explained how to do a REST request to a Mobile Cloud Service API using an Unauthorized access. To do so you need to add an HTTP Header property using a Base64 encoded key. But how to do that for authorized access. Using Postman you should be able to add HTTP Basic authentication, provide the access details and update the request. In SoapUI, it's more or less the same trick: just (more...)
Here’s the first of many OpenWorld-related posts, this one cross-posted from our colleagues and friends at VoX, the Voice of Experience for Oracle Cloud Applications. Enjoy.
Are you all set for Oracle OpenWorld 2015 (@oracleopenworld)? Even if you think you’re already booked for the event, you’ll want to squeeze in a chance to experience the future of the Oracle Applications User Experience (OAUX) — and maybe even make a few UX buddies along the (more...)

I'm at the OPN Summercamps 2015 in Lisbon on the Mobile Cloud Services workshop, doning the FixIt Fast tutorial. Now, one of the steps is to test the API imported from a RAML document and confgured it. Then in step 3 you're going to test it using the build in test console of MCS. But since I have SoapUI installed I found it neat to be able to test it from there. Since then you (more...)
By accident I encountered the following behaviour of SoapUI. I wanted to register a username/password combination in SoapUI. Normally in SoapUI property values are shown as plain text. Here I miss-typed the property for password on purpose:
But see what happens if I correctly type the word "Password":
Apparently if the property contains the word "Password", prefixed with something indicative, it will consider the property as a password field. Cool!
Weblogic wraps objects returned by the database-driver to provide functionality related to debugging, connection utilization tracking and transparent transaction support. However for some native database objects like BLOBS, CLOBS, ARRAYS etc. this wrapping can affect the performance significantly. When this wrapping is disabled, the application (in our case the (more...)
If you work in enterprise user experience (UX) it will come as no surprise that the humble pen and paper remains in widespread use for everyday business.
Sales reps, for example, are forever quickly scribbling down opportunity info. HR pros use them widely. Accountants? Check. At most meetings you will find both pen and paper and digital technology on the table.
