iPhone - Project Malaks

Last week I finally got round to purchasing a macbook air, so now I have the chance to jump in and do some iphone programming.

After spending about a week orienting myself to the new environment, OS X and xcode, I started working on creating a 3d game engine. So far it's early stages, implementing simple engine code to handle 3D third person camera and object movement. ( I'll try to post a video soon )

The plan is to have something presentable by the end of the year, I'll try to keep you posted with how the engine delopment goes regulary inbetween code thrashing sessions.

Mortgage Calculator

Just came back from holiday and remembered that the "Super Sexy" Mortgage Calculator Contest was coming to a close. So I quickly knocked up an entry.

Check it out at

There's lot's of features I'd still like to implement, but for 15 hours work over 3 days, I'm content with the outcome. Positive things about this calculator is that it doesn't use flash (so the charts work on mobiles), and does all the calculations asynchronously client side, so there's no wasted server interactions.
