An Exclusive Club and Reassuringly Expensive

Te Waka o Delphi – In the comments to a previous post there cropped up the complaint that people asking for a realistic Starter Edition are just looking for a cheaper edition of Delphi for themselves.

The Wiert Corner – It has been in the queue for a really long time. In fact, all started when chatting with Anders Ohlsson during the inception of the MVP program. But then the paper work (you know, the thing with written signatures, fax machines, etc) got buried under some projects that lasted both a lot longer than ...

Are Embarcadero Really Interested in New Users ?

Te Waka o Delphi – In replying to a comment on his blog post about the pricing of the mobile add-on pack (XE4 – no news on XE5 as yet that I am aware of), Larry Hengen appears to be one of those people still under the belief that there are any “new buyer” type customers for Delphi. Are there ...

Artificial intelligence: The pieces are coming together.

TURBU Tech – I have a friend who’s blind.  She considers herself very fortunate to live in a time when modern technology means that that’s not the utterly debilitating curse it’s historically been.  She’s a self-described “accessible technology geek,” and occasionally she ...

Delphi Packaging and Pricing a Mystery

TPersistent.com – If you already upgraded to XE4, but didn’t buy the mobile pack, it appears that EMBT penalizes you if you then want to upgrade to the mobile pack.  According to this pricing page, the mobile pack AddOn is $499 if you already own XE4 or not.  Seems to me it should be $449 to reflect the upgrade ...
