Android Essentials is a no–frills, no–nonsense, code–centric run through the guts of application development on Google’s Mobile OS. This book uses the development of a sample application to work through topics, focusing on giving developers the essential tools and examples required to make viable commercial applications work. Covering the entirety of the Android catalog in less than 150 pages is simply impossible. Instead, this book focuses on just four main topics: the application life cycle and OS integration, user interface, location–based services, and networking....
The term magnetic bearing refers to devices that provide stable suspension of a rotor. Because
of the contact-less motion of the rotor, magnetic bearings offer many advantages for various
applications. Commercial applications include compressors, centrifuges, high-speed turbines,
energy-storage flywheels, high-precision machine tools, etc.
Magnetic bearings are a typical mechatronic product. Thus, a great deal of knowledge is
necessary for its design, construction and operation.

Android Wireless Application Development has earned a reputation as the most useful real-world guide to building robust, commercial-grade Android apps. Now, authors Lauren Darcey and Shane Conder have systematically revised and updated this guide for the latest Android SDK and tools updates. To accommodate their extensive new coverage, they’ve split the book into two leaner, cleaner volumes. This Volume II focuses on advanced techniques for the entire app development cycle, including design, coding, testing, debugging, and distribution...
"Under the right conditions and applications, evaporative air-conditioning (EAC) technologies can provide excellent cooling and ventilation with minimal energy consumption." Evaporative air-conditioning technologies are being used increasingly in residential and commercial applications worldwide. EAC technologies, which rely on water as a coolant rather than on chemical refrigerants, are economical to produce and use and have important environmental benefits.
This is believed to be the first book that takes a view of nanotechnology from a
telecommunications and networking perspective. Nanotechnology refers to the manipulation
of materials at the atomic or molecular level. Nanotechnology is getting a lot
of attention of late not only in academic settings and in laboratories around the
world, but also in government and venture capitalists’ initiatives. There now is a
major drive to commercialize the technology by all sorts of firms, ranging from startups
to Fortune 100 companies.
Agile Oracle Application Express shows how skilled, motivated, and self-organizing developers can realize extraordinary commercial benefits from Oracle Application Express. The secret is to couple Application Express with an agile software development approach. This book leads the way.
Oracle Application Express is well-suited to agile processes, with its support for rapid prototyping and team development. Application Express supports a gamut of enabling
If we are to realize the everyday benefits promised by pervasive computing and context-
aware applications, we must first develop the foundation systems that will make those
applications easy to develop, to deploy, and to maintain. We must develop systems that
provide the necessary contextual information with accuracy, robustness, and scalability. We
must also address the technical challenges of engineering these systems for use by humans
and mobile devices in indoor environments.
Leading text extracts created to support some online Boolean retrieval goals are evaluated for their acceptability as news document summaries. Results are presented and discussed from the perspective of commercial summarization technology needs.
Over the course of a few short years, electronic business has advanced from a buzzword to a thriving new channel for the delivery of goods and services and the mediation of financial transactions, shaping the destiny of numerous contemporary enterprises and significantly affecting entire economies worldwide.
538 Making Key Strategic Decisions
computers that functioned using the UNIX operating system. While, in the 1970s, Bell Labs actually developed UNIX as an operating system for scientific applications, it later became an accepted standard for commercial applications. Platform independent, the operating system and its associated applications could run on a variety of manufacturers’ computers, creating both opportunities for users and competition within the computer industry. Users were no longer inexorably tied to one manufacturer. UNIX became the standard as companies moved into the 1990s.
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), also referred to as
programmable controllers, are in the computer family. They are
used in commercial and industrial applications. A PLC monitors
inputs, makes decisions based on its program, and controls
outputs to automate a process or machine.

The purpose of this book is to provide the advances in plant in vitro culture as related to perennial fruit crops and medicinal plants. Basic principles and new techniques, now available, are presented in detail. The book will be of use to researchers, teachers in biotechnology and for individuals interested to the commercial application of plant in vitro culture.
It is my privilege to contribute the foreword for this unique volume entitled: “Plant
Tissue Culture Engineering,” edited by S. Dutta Gupta and Y. Ibaraki. While there have
been a number of volumes published regarding the basic methods and applications of
plant tissue and cell culture technologies, and even considerable attention provided to
bioreactor design, relatively little attention has been afforded to the engineering
principles that have emerged as critical contributions to the commercial applications of
