first_imgQPR’s bid to sign defender Michael Dawson from Tottenham has stalled.Rangers have so far been unable to agree personal terms with the England international, who has been told he can leave White Hart Lane.Hughes is keen to sign Dawson.Mark Hughes has not given up hope of persuading Dawson to move to west London but has admitted that talks have not gone well.“At the moment it’s not where I hoped it would be,” said the R’s boss.“It may change closer to the transfer window closing – perhaps we’ll revisit it – but at the moment it’s not progressing.”But Hughes confirmed that progress has been made in attempts to offload Joey Barton to Marseille.Rangers are keen for Barton to join the French club on loan and believe they may be able to agree a deal.Hughes explained: “I said before that there had been some communication in terms of e-mails exchanged and interest expressed.“Since then I think things have moved forward. I’m not sure where things stand at the moment, but it is something that could happen.”Click here for the Norwich v QPR quizSee also:QPR plan late attempt to sign Spurs manQPR accept defeat in bid to sign defender from TottenhamQPR may make another move for DawsonFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Why Facebook Just Bought Parse, A Toolkit Loved By Mobile-App Developers

first_imgTags:#acquisition#app developers#Facebook taylor hatmaker Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts Facebook has just acquired Parse, a popular suite of tools for mobile and Web app developers. The acquisition will serve Facebook’s mobile mission well, encouraging developers to build apps tied into the social network while easing the barriers to entry.Already, Parse has attracted interest from familiar names like Sesame Workshop, which makes a Cookie Monster app, and Carnival Cruises, which used Parse’s cross-platform tools to build its Ship Mate app.The acquisition suggests that Facebook wants brands like these to go beyond building Facebook pages and running ads to creating mobile experiences which generate activity on Facebook users’ profiles and news feeds. With this buy, rumored to be worth around $85 million, Facebook dives headlong into the nascent game of providing the technical underpinnings for apps, also known as the back end. Parse’s peers in this emerging mini-industry are companies like Stackmob, Kinvey, and Cocoafish, the latter of which Appcelerator acquired last year.Parse has an enthusiastic community of developers—and for good reason. The developer platform subtracts some of the nastier requirements of building apps, like server maintenance—ick! Instead, it lets app builders concentrate their energy around what matters – namely, developing an awesome user interface, or front end. We spoke with former Hipmunk mobile developer and user-experience guru Danilo Campos about what the acquisition means for developers loyal to Parse. “I hope the incentives are aligned such that Facebook wins when developers win,” Campos said. “It’s easy to get antsy when a [big company] buys up a gem. But I think Parse’s leadership is damn smart and if anything can navigate these waters for the best outcome, it’s them.”Facebook refused to comment on the deal’s terms beyond saying that “this is an acquisition – not a talent deal.” Facebook has bought some design- and mobile-oriented companies primarily to hire their talent while abandoning their products. That’s not the case here: Parse and Facebook says current products will be supported.According to Facebook’s blog:Today, we’re making it even easier to build mobile apps with Facebook Platform by by announcing that we have entered into an agreement to acquire Parse, a cloud-based platform that provides scalable cross-platform services and tools for developers. By making Parse a part of Facebook Platform, we want to enable developers to rapidly build apps that span mobile platforms and devices.It remains to be seen if Parse, under Facebook’s wing, will maintain or extend support for competing social platforms like Twitter. Still, Facebook didn’t seem keen on messing with the Parse’s existing well-loved products and services.last_img read more
