Harvard has started teaching open source to its aspiring MBA candidates. In the latest issue of Harvard Business Review, Harvard presents business managers with a tough decision: To open source a successful (but increasingly vulnerable) product or guard its intellectual property zealously? As the case study’s open source proponent suggests, “Open source is like a rising tide. You either float with it or drown.”

Flapi is YDreams own in-house mascot, presumably used in a variety of augmented reality testing scenarios. In the video posted in Youtube, Flapi is controlled with a Logitech gamepad and comes eerily close to slapping hands with a human. YDreams is a Portuguese technology company specialist in information technology, telecommunications, image processing, geographic information systems and environmental engineering.

BluePad Logo

BluePad v0.5 has just been released.

This new version features a complete redesign of the main menu to support more variate phone screens.
Also, the Title Screen of death that makes you press 5 every time you use BluePad is now gone forever !!!

Currently the new version is only available on SVN but we plan on releasing it to SourceForge ASAP.

Here’s how to get the new jar:

$ svn co https://bluepad.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/bluepad/trunk/bluepad_mobile

This will create a bluepad_mobile folder in your current directory containing BluePad and BluePad_alternative folders.
The jar is inside the bin folder of both of the BluePad mobile versions.

Use the regular BluePad version unless you have a Nokia S60 or another phone that doesn’t like the normal version.

Soon we will made some improvements in the server part to.

Thanks to all who have tested BluePad, report bugs and have made suggestions :D .
