1/10/2011   Post a comment
I love books - the escape into other worlds, delving into minute details on a myriad of subjects and even the smell of ink and binding glue… I can't help be impressed by the British Library's news of a Smartphone app that allows access to world literary treasures via mobile devices and iPad.

Debug is the largest time and resource drain in the verification process today.
