New MeTA Studio binary release

This is essentially a stop gap release that fixes a number of bugs, but also adds a major new feature: MeTA Studio Archive format (.mar). The .mar format allows you to package an application that uses the MeTA Studio platform. This version also includes inbuilt support for Jython, though this is not yet integrated into the UI.

Head to to get the latest binary package. The current version number is 2.0.19022011 and is also the first binary release in 2011.

Android finally has official blogger client

So Google has finally released a blogger client for Android. I have been waiting for this for quite some time and was pleasantly surprised to see that in market.

The other pleasant stuff was that Google Goggles is now available for my phone which is pretty cool. Now the only stuff missing is proper offline Google docs support.

Now hopefully I get some time to develop on Android :-)

Is Bing really recycling Google?

Well thats what Google wants you to believe and Microsoft doesn't. I am not a search engine expert, but I just don't believe what others have to say. So I randomly generated a "synthetic search" query: "abduljkastifu" and put it in Google and Bing with the following results.

Which obviously are different. After this, I pretty much stopped reading ( The said "recycling" only happens if you seem to be using some settings of IE8 / Bing toolbar (does someone actually use a toolbar?).

But the media putting it simply as Bing copying Google results is what I can classify as being bad Journalism.
