Position: West Indies trail by 41 runs with nine second innings wickets intact. Toss: West Indies. Umpires: R Kettleborough, B Oxenford; TV – R Illingworth. BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC): West Indies were facing a daunting penultimate day of the second Test against Pakistan today, after Azhar Ali struck his 13th Test hundred to put the visitors on top in the decisive contest at Kensington Oval. Facing a deficit of 81 runs after Pakistan piled up 393 in their first innings, the Caribbean side finished yesterday’s third day on 40 for one – still requiring a further 41 runs to make the Pakistanis bat again. They suffered a blow in the 14 overs they were left to navigate at the end when left-hander Kieran Powell was brilliantly caught off the inside edge by wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed, off the enterprising seamer Mohammad Abbas in the second over of the innings. But novice left-hander Shimron Hetmyer, searching for his first score of note after failing in each of his three Test innings to date, stroked a breezy, unbeaten 22 off 34 balls to hold off the Pakistan attack. Showing little signs of nerves, the 20-year-old pulled Abbas to the ropes at midwicket for his first scoring shot and then straight drove seamer Mohammad Amir and cover-drove leg-spinner Shadab Khan, to account for three of his four boundaries. He was partnered by opener Kraigg Brathwaite, who was unbeaten eight from 46 deliveries. Earlier, Azhar scored 105 to help Pakistan consolidate their overnight position of 172 for three, as West Indies struggled in the morning session and were forced to go wicketless. Fast bowler Shannon Gabriel topped the hosts’ bowling with four for 81, while captain and seamer Jason Holder (3-42), and leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo (3-116) finished with three wickets apiece. Azhar and Misbah blunted the West Indies attack in the morning session, gathering just 54 runs in 26 overs to push the visitors up to 226 for three at lunch. Resuming the day on 81, the right-handed Azhar added a mere 13 runs to be unbeaten on 94 at the break but reached triple figures in the fifth over following the resumption when he cut Bishoo to the backward point boundary. All told, he struck nine fours in a knock that spanned 278 deliveries and a shade over 71/2 hours. He had put on 98 for the fourth wicket with Misbah when he finally perished in the seventh over after lunch, nicking a Bishoo leg-break behind at 259 for four. Misbah, who started the day on seven, was unbeaten on 40 at lunch and raised his 38th Test half-century in the fourth over after the break when he cut off-spinner Roston Chase behind square for a single. The 42-year-old celebrated by clearing the ropes at long on with Chase as he dominated a 57-run, fifth wicket stand with Asad Shafiq (15), to further strengthen Pakistan. Misbah, who was left stranded on 99 in the first innings of the Sabina Park first Test, cruised to the verge of an 11th Test hundred but then got himself in a tangle trying to leave alone one from Holder that bounced, and managed to edge to Shai Hope at second slip. He faced 201 balls in just over 41/4 hours and struck nine fours and two sixes. West Indies then honed in for the kill with Gabriel removing Sarfraz Ahmed for nine to a catch by Powell at slip and Holder trapping Shafiq lbw with the last ball before tea, to leave Pakistan on 329 for seven. However, the Windies hopes of bringing a swift end to the innings were dashed when Shadab (16) put on 25 for the eighth wicket with Amir and another 30 for the ninth wicket with Yasir, as runs flowed at the end.

How to Design a Web App for Google TV

first_imgGoogle has released a preliminary developer’s guide to aid those interested in porting their Web or mobile applications to Google TV, the newly announced platform built on top of Google Chrome technology. With Google TV, “television is no longer confined to showing just video” explains Salahuddin Choudhary, Google TV product manager, in a blog post. “It can be a photo slideshow viewer, a gaming console, a music player and much more.”But how does one build a working application for Google TV? Although deeper, technical details are still forthcoming (sign up here for updates), developers interested in this new platform can now follow the guidelines put forth by Google here on the Google TV developer site. These are essentially style suggestions for building TV-enabled Web apps, something that developers should consider if building apps for any TV platform, not just Google’s. They are, as follows:Make it Simple: Identify the vital parts of your app before starting work, stick with one visible mode of navigation or one information hierarchy, make the primary action reachable in one click, avoid the temptation to use abstract icons, limit vertical scrolling, and preselect the user’s next action when you can.Get Navigation Right: Google TV users will often navigate with a directional pad, so the navigation model involves up, down, left, right and enter buttons and action. Make your app navigable with one hand. Design for TV screens, not Computer Screens: TVs have wider screens, so you should make UI elements slightly larger. Also, avoid highly saturated and very bright colors, and design for 1280×720 and 1920×1080 resolutions, including at least a 10% margin. Use pure white (#FFFFFF) sparingly. Pick the Right Fonts: Avoid lightweight fonts or those with very narrow or broad strokes. Use simply constructed sans serif fonts and apply anti aliasing to increase readability. Google TV currently supports only the Droid Sans and Droid Serif font families. If you want to use font embedding techniques to create a more customized appearance, you can, but this relies on Flash, which will be slower. Make Onscreen Text Readable: Don’t Use Disruptive Sounds: By default, volume should be low. Make it simple to mute the app. Don’t make interactions dependent on audio cues.Use Flash Wisely: Google TV can play 720p and 1080p Flash videos. Use h.264 encoding, not h.263 or vp6. Avoid Flash banner or sidebar ads that include video. Only use one instance of the media player at a time. Be conscious of system memory. Be Conscious of Performance: Perceived performance is more important than actual performance for TV apps. Make sure the app never executes so much code that the runtime can’t frequently update the screen and gather user input. You may need to divide a task into parts to accomplish this. Use Bitmaps: Use bitmaps to optimize rendering. Watch Out for Tweening: Minimize the use of motion tweens to help content run faster. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting sarah perez Tags:#Google#How To#web Limit each paragraph to no more than 90 words. Break text into small chunks that can be read at a glance. Keep line length at about five to seven words per line. Never go shorter than three or longer than 12. Remember that light text on a dark background is slightly easier to read on TV (compared to dark text on a light background). Target body text to be around 21pt on 720p and 28pt on 1080p. Don’t use any text smaller than 18pt on 720p and 24pt on 1080p. Add more leading (larger line spacing) for onscreen text than print text.

Microsoft Tries To Spur Windows Phone Development With New App Studio

first_imgMicrosoft wants you to build an app for Windows Phone. Like, really wants you to build an app for Windows Phone.Microsoft announced today a program called Windows Phone App Studio beta, a free Web-based tool for first time or hobbyist developers to try out app designs and download them to their Windows Phone devices to test them out. If they like what they have made, they can publish them to the Windows Phone Marketplace for their friends and family.The Windows Phone App Studio is basically an online app wizard with a variety of customizable templates that allow for applying text, Web content, imagery and design concepts to an app. The App Studio will take care of all the coding and backend services hosted in the cloud. The new tool could be useful to professional developers that have been resistant to building for Windows Phone (which are most professional mobile developers) by letting them see what their app might look like on the platform. Microsoft let’s developers use App Studio beta for prototyping before downloading the source code so they can continue working on that app in Microsoft’s integrated developer environment Visual Studio.Microsoft is allowing any developer to unlock and register one Windows Phone to download their test apps (up to two apps) on. Registered Windows Phone developers can unlock up to three phones for 10 apps. To spur developers to try App Studio or just sign up for a developer account Microsoft announced that registration to its mobile developer center is on special: $19 until August 26. That is well below Apple’s $99 yearly fee and Google’s $25 fee for Android developers.  What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfacescenter_img Tags:#app development#Microsoft#Windows Phone The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology dan rowinskilast_img read more

Road rage: security for victim’s kin
