Long time between posts

It's been a while since I have updated this site, and to those who visit regularly it's about time I said something! So, at the moment I am adding improvements to the NASA World Wind multi-touch plugin, and at this stage there still seems to be a rotating issue. As you pull your fingers apart the globe zooms in and the software detects that the fingers are moving away from each other at speed. The problem is that the rotate function is very similar. It is very hard to drag 2 fingers away from each other without rotating them slightly around a central point, hence rotate and zoom seem to be tied. It is something that I will need to debug for some time to get right (otherwise I will remove the rotate function!)

Also I am currently toying with the idea of Multi-touch Texas Hold'em and a Touch event based BlackJack. The BlackJack doesn't need to be Multi-touch, I just think it would be nice in my AppLoader menu as one of the games ;-)

As more information becomes available I will let you know.
