Storage device writes information atom-by-atom

The quest for storage devices that pack more information into a smaller space has reached a new limit, with memory that writes information atom-by-atom.
Dutch scientists developed rewritable memory that stores information in the positions of individual chlorine atoms on a copper surface.
The information storage density is two to three orders of magnitude beyond current hard disk or flash technology.
Details of the advance appear in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.
The 1 kilobyte memory is the work of a team led by Sander Otte at the Technical University of Delft (TU Delft). With each bit of data represented by the position of a single chlorine atom, the team was able to reach a density of 500 Terabits per square inch. "In theory, this storage density would allow all books ever created by humans to be written on a single post stamp," said Dr Otte.
Or, by another measure, the entire contents of the US Library of Congress could be stored in a 0.1mm-wide cube.
The researchers used a …

Stretching a image in iOS using colorWithPatternImage

We can do some image resizing to achieve this. Use this helper method to resize image and then use it in colorWithPatternImage method call.
This is the resizing helper method.
-(UIImage *)imageResize :(UIImage*)img andResizeTo:(CGSize)newSize {     CGFloat scale = [[UIScreen mainScreen]scale];
    //UIGraphicsBeginImageContext(newSize);     UIGraphicsBeginImageContextWithOptions(newSize, NO, scale);     [img drawInRect:CGRectMake(0,0,newSize.width,newSize.height)];     UIImage* newImage = UIGraphicsGetImageFromCurrentImageContext();     UIGraphicsEndImageContext();     return newImage; }
And this is how to call it inside your colorWithPatternImage method.
[separatorLineView setFrame:CGRectMake(10, 0, 180, 3)]; separatorLineView.backgroundColor = [UIColor colorWithPatternImage:[self imageResize :[UIImage imageNamed:@"divider.png"] andResizeTo:separatorLineView.frame.size]];

First Steps: Exploring .NET Core and ASP.NET Core

.NET Core and ASP.NET Core 1.0 are finally here, and in this post I'll show how to get started with these new tools using the command line tooling. This is not meant to be your typical getting started tutorial that jumps right into Visual Studio and creates a Web project from there. Rather, the purpose of this post is to demonstrate some of the core underpinnings of how .NET Core and ASP.NET Core projects are bootstrapped and using the command line tooling is actually the best way to demonstrate this.
I'll start at the beginning with 'HelloWorld' then add additional pieces and ASP.NET and demonstrate how to deploy and then run the application both on Windows and a Mac.

How to Create an Xcode Source Editor Extension

Xcode is the main IDE (Integrated Development Environment) used by thousands and thousands of developers every day. It is an awesome tool, but sometimes you want to customize some of its features and behaviors to better fit your workflow.
Until Xcode 7, it was possible to inject code into Xcode at runtime to create plugins. Plugins could be submitted and distributed through a great app called Alcatraz. This is no longer possible in Xcode 8.
Xcode 8 validates each library and bundle to prevent malicious code from running without your permission. When Xcode starts, previously installed plugins with Alcatraz are not loaded anymore. Not everything is lost though, Apple also announced at WWDC the possibility to develop Xcode source editor extensions so that everyone can extend existing source editing features. Let's take a look about what we can achieve with such extensions.

Magical Error Handling in Swift

Error handling in Swift has come a long way since the patterns in Swift 1 that were inspired by Objective-C. Major improvements in Swift 2 make the experience of handling unexpected states and conditions in your application more straightforward. Just like other common programming languages, preferred error handling techniques in Swift can vary, depending upon the type of error encountered, and the overall architecture of your app. This tutorial will take you through a magical example involving wizards, witches, bats and toads to illustrate how best to deal with common failure scenarios. You'll also look at how to upgrade error handling from projects written in earlier versions of Swift and, finally, gaze into your crystal ball at the possible future of error handling in Swift!

Rapid, Interactive Prototyping With Xcode Playgrounds

Since their introduction in Xcode 6 alongside Swift, to their current iteration in Xcode 7.3.1, playgrounds have come a long way. With new features and better stability, they are evolving into a viable tool for rapid prototyping or quickly hacking together a proof of concept.
As a developer, sometimes you have a flash of inspiration in the form of an interesting idea for an app and you want to quickly code up a prototype that represents the bare essence of your idea. Or you just want to verify your understanding of how some piece of UIKit code will behave. If you are like me, you would rather avoid the hassle and mental overhead of creating an Xcode project and having to deal with a myriad of factors, such as device types and resolutions, and build settings. These decisions can be deferred until after you have made up your mind that the core idea is worth pursuing.
In this tutorial, we create a card-based memory game all within the confines of a playground. It is a common, well-known ga…

An Introduction to Android Firmware

Android phones and tablets are generally a lot more open than their counterparts running operating systems such as iOS, Tizen, or Windows 10 Mobile. If you don't like the firmware the device manufacturer has installed on your Android device, you are free to replace it with your own custom firmware. CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, and the Pure Nexus Project are examples of custom firmware that enjoy a lot of popularity among Android users.
Custom firmware is also the only way you can install newer versions of Android on devices that are no longer supported by their manufacturers. Unless you own a device that belongs to the Nexus or Android One series, I'm sure you knew that already.
In this article, I help you understand what Android firmware really is and how an Android device uses it. I also introduce you to the tools you can use to replace a device's firmware.
