Extreme Temperatures

It seems that Seville holds the record for extreme maximum temperature in Europe. I found out accidentally reading the wikipedia. As sometimes the wikipedia is regarded as not being trustworthy (as anyone can change it), I wanted to look for an official website and found one at the National Climatic Data Center (from the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration ) in which it is confirmed. But, as some might think that the 19th century is too far away, have a look at this graph from 2003 in Seville .

Background briefing on FON

Some days ago I posted that I was writing a report for one of my courses at the University of Sussex. I chose to research on FON. The aim of this paper is to show a factual description of how this company is using technology in its business model, nothing more, nothing less :-) Enjoy Introduction FON is a recently created start-up company in Spain, founded by Martin Varsavsky, an Argentine entrepreneur, founder of many companies in the last 20 years, five of which have become very successful.

About FON

As part of my studies in my e-business course at the University of Sussex, I have been asked to write a report of a company that is somehow involved with e-business (e-commerce, use of technology to become more profitable or efficient, etc.). So, I have decided that I am going to do some research on FON, a company created by Martin Varsavsky who is famous for founding Jazztel and Ya.com, one of the biggest phone companies and ISP in Spain.

On XML and Java

As part of an assignment for a course at Sussex University I have to create a Servlet to run a small application, one to deal with a wedding list. It involves quite a few technologies, including XML, javascript, CSS and JAVA.So far I am not specially happy with the course as I haven’t enjoyed it as much as I thought initially. I think it is because there are so many technologies considered in such a short period of time, but I think that Java itself made me feel very uncomfortable from the very beginning (As an example, I found the Java DOM API to be quite awkward to use).

So, they finally are moving to intel. Amazing… I guess now there are millions of mac users completely upset
