I have ported the AWS for iOS Framework to Mac OS X and pushed the code to bitbucket. There's not a lot to say about it. I had to hack up the browser id line. I am planning on fixing that. There were some issues with the structure of the source code directories and import statements that needed to be ironed out. Also, there were some mismatches in variable types that changed size between iOS and OS X so I fixed those up as well I have tested the S3 APIs to a small extent and am working on more unit tests but I think this establishes that the underlying communication mechanism is working fine under OS X.

I installed a new 320GB hard drive into my MacBook Pro last night. Time Machine makes this stuff really easy now. I left it restoring last night around 1am and came back to it around 8am and was able to simply reboot into my restored disk with 170GB free space and 7200RPM speed. Nice.

The author of this article seems to think so. There is also this article that seems to be reporting the same thing. Rumors are flying around what Apple, who always keeps its announcements well under wraps, will be announcing at the keynote for its World Wide Developer Conference next week. I am looking forward to hearing what Jobs and Crew have in store for us next week. There is also talk of them making an announcement about “Snow Leopard”.

I have started fooling around with the iPhone SDK. I am planning to release a product soon but the plans are quite preliminary so mums the word on exactly what is coming. However, I ran into a little problem right off the bat.

Setting Environment Variables for Mac OS X Programs

For the most part, Mac OS X programs do not use environment variables or the PATH. They behave in a very different way from other Unix environments on this score. However, as Java developer I use several tools that require that other command line programs be available on the system PATH. In Windows and Unix there are well known places to put this kind of information but in Mac OS X the location for these changes is obscure.
