I've been doing research about APNs lately which led me to investigate some PHP APNSs (Apple Push Notification Server). I found a promising PHP APNS with Easy APNS. Side note- They undoubtedly have SEO down pat for APNSs because they come up first every time.

Also, there's great documentation on Apple's website if you would like to find out more about Apple Push Notifications and how they work.

Google trends is a great site to check out if your curious about trending topics. Whether you are curious about technology, fashion, stocks, celebrities, etc. It's all there. In fact, it's probably more fun if you just go not knowing what it's about and just getting to learn the system - that's what I did.

Also, if you enjoy Google Trends, you'll want to check out Google Zeigeist too. It's a collection of the top terms for the last year.

I found out about the valueForKeyPath for NSArray today and apparently you can do a similar thing with NSDictionary. Find out more about Key-Value Collection Operators from Apple's website.

I want to give a shout out to some great Q&A forums I've used over the years. I'm giving these in chronological order:

kirupa.com -- This a forum I used for help with actionscript. I used it for AS2 as well as AS3. It's a home to Senocular who is one of the best developers I've ever recieved answers from.

stackoverflow.com -- my favorite Q&A site over the last year or so. This website is home to a plethora of developers with vast knowledge of a great number of expertises. I've learned about Java, IOS, actionscript, javascript, and more all at this same website. It comes highly recommended.

One of the guys I work with stumbled upon a quick and easy way to use logic to check if a value is not a valid number (non dependant on type). The logic is as follows:

"123" == +"123" // true
"asdf" == +"asdf" // false

Now you can check to see if your variables are numbers even when they come through as strings (eg. from a form)
