July 30, 2013 | Craig Isakson: Web, Hybrid, Native Part I—Web
One of the most often asked questions when consulting for mobile development is what is the difference between web, hybrid, and native applications. Often times the business needs to know the specifics and how they affect the bottom line and user experience. This is the first part of a three part blog series that aims to answer these questions.
July 30, 2013 | Lon Keller: With Big Video Comes Big Storage
For those of us in the video production industry, proper archiving of media is one of our biggest challenges. When HD video came into the picture, most cameras still recorded to digital tape. Archiving the raw footage didn’t change. We simply labeled the tape and put it on the shelf knowing the data would be safe for many years. As cameras moved to tapeless recording, storing the raw footage became more challenging. Initially, many in the industry turned to portable hard drives, as it was the only storage solution that provided the capacity needed. The practice then was to fill up the drive, make a duplicate as a backup, label the drives, and put them on the shelf just as we did with video tape. However, (and for reasons I can’t explain) time was not kind to those drives. Without warning, they would fail to spin up and the footage they contained would be lost (which is why we would create a backup drive.)
June 30, 2013 | Craig Isakson: Space, the final frontier
Being an employee at Sundog entitles us to a number of different benefits. One of our benefits is having our birthday off.

June 30, 2013 | Lon Keller: Patent Troll Threatens Podcasters
Personal Audio, LLC, a company who setup headquarters in an unoccupied office suite in Texas, has filed lawsuits against technology companies like Apple, large media companies such as CBS and NBC and individual podcasters including Adam Carolla’s ACE Broadcasting, HowStuffWorks.com, and Togi Entertainment, claiming all parties have infringed on Personal Audio LLC’s U.S. Patent 8,112,504. In a nutshell, Personal Audio, LLC claims they invented podcasting, they own it, and everybody needs to pay them money.
The patent was filed on March 4, 2009, but podcasting had already began roughly 5 years earlier. Adam Curry, considered to be one of the early podcasting pioneers, started his “Daily Source Code” podcast in August, 2004. Even Sundog’s own podcast posted its first episode in November of 2007.
June 30, 2013 | Craig Isakson: Coding in the Cloud
I have always had the belief that eventually we will be able to do most anything through a browser. This is one of the reasons I have been excited about Chrome OS from it’s beginning. Chrome, in it’s current state, can do a lot. I would say that 95% of what I do on a computer is done and done well in a browser. So what is that other 5%? For me it is almost explicitly coding.
