When we talk about vandalism, as long as it doesn’t involve actual Vandals sacking cities, many people would agree that some acts of vandalism are more funny than they are criminal. And what about “culture jamming” and public activism? While acts of civil disobedience might include aspects with are technically a crime, should they be judged in the same light?

We’re just a few days away from another installment of the annual International Consumer Electronics Show, where thousands of companies from all over the world come to show off their wares for the new year.

One of the device types everyone is expecting to see a lot of this year is the Ultrabook, or the ultra thin and light notebook class that Intel classified just about nine months ago.

If you’re a web developer who would like some assistance with your more complex development tasks then a good first step might be to install Firebug, an amazingly powerful Firefox extension which enables you to inspect and modify HTML in real time, debug JavaScript, analyse site performance and a whole lot more.

There are plenty of other Firefox extensions which you might find useful, though. Obviously you could research and install these individually, but a quicker option might be to download a copy of OWASP’s Mantra, a customized portable version of Firefox which includes more than 50 well-chosen web development tools.

It is important to keep your computer in good shape if you are going to get years of use from it and there are various techniques that can be used to ensure that you are getting the best possible performance from your hardware. While it is fairly easy to use the various tools that are built into Windows to keep your hard drive optimized, when it comes to the registry it is something of a different story.

Whoa, Galaxy Nexus is coming to Sprint

That’s the gist of an advertisement running at CNET right now. It’s the “first 4G LTE phone from Sprint”, according to the banner advert, on the carrier’s, ah, coming-sometime-really-soon LTE network. I dunno if the ad spills a pending CES 2012 announcement or what. But leaks don’t get much funnier than this.

Publication Type: 
Report/White paper

Publication Date:

Publisher/Journal: 
Advanced Development for Africa

Publication language: 
English

Abstract: 

Despite the strong promise demonstrated by mHealth tools and applications, the current landscape of mHealth development in developing country contexts is characterized by a proliferation of unsustainable pilot projects that often expire once initial funding is exhausted. For example, in Uganda alone there were 23 mHealth initiatives in 2008 and 2009 that did not scale up after the pilot phase. In India, there were over 30 mHealth initiatives in 2009 that did not go beyond the pilot phase.
