In this article I cover how you can fix the Base SDK Missing problem you might have had using the iOS SDK 5.2. The video above is easiest to see in full screen mode.
I downloaded Apple’s iOS SDK 5.2 and installed it on my Mac. After that process was over , I decided to load an existing project of mine into XCode. Ok, good. Then I tried to do a build. Kaboom! It did not work! No worries I thought, I will just go to the drop-down and pick the latest SDK 5.2. But the option was not there! The thought came to me that I might have to create a new project and import all my files from my existing project just to get it to work. Not a very nice thought to say the least! Read more
If you have ever been to Chomer.com before, and now have come back, you will notice that things look a lot different. I’m not done with this spiff-up by any means, but it is well along the way. I think that visually it is a big improvement. Also I am using a Like button for Facebook on posts, and a Retweet button for Twitter. So I’m beginning to get some of the social aspects covered too. Why the social aspects? Its a good way for people to spread the word about content on this site if they find it useful. Read more
As I began refining some sample code for making Universal Apps for the iPhone and iPad, I sought a way to make my code as concise as possible. I needed to determine if the app was running on an iPad or iPhone/iPod Touch and use it to my advantage. This basic information is contained in the UIDevice class.
I started working on a video tutorial on how to make a universal app which will run on both the iPhone/iPod Touch and the iPad. I began by describing all the different iPhone OS Templates and then focused in on the template to use to create what Apple calls Universal Apps.
Going through this exercise took more time than I really wanted to spend so I decided to split that part out. The contents of this tutorial on iPhone OS Template may seem a little obvious… but sometimes the obvious seems to land right under our noses without us noticing.
That happened to me when I started looking into the process of creating universal apps. I missed out on the fact that I could use the windows based application template to do just that. So then what other options did I have as a developer regarding these templates? I did a little digging.
This tutorial is not earth shattering, but I think it is good preparation for getting into the subject of writing universal apps.

I took the day off in order that I could buy my very own iPad with 3G built in. I’d been showing some restraint. I had come close to just saying the heck with it I’ll get the Wifi only version. But I toughed it out.
So I took the day off of work so that I could be there bright and early. I dropped my wife off Read more
Today, was the day that Apple fans have been waiting for. The day the iPad finally went on sale. I went to Bally’s to workout and then decided to head over to the nearest Apple store. My intentions were not to buy an iPad but merely see what was up, and try one out for Read more
Robert Scoble has some interesting thoughts about curating data on the web in a post (see link below). I think that there are some very useful thoughts in this post. Stuff that developers out to look over and see what they can glean (including me)!
