Full text of article...

Time flies when you're having fun.... If that's true, I must be having a ball because I can't believe I've been publishing this magazine for over nine years!

As you'll note by the issue number, we're now in our tenth year. There have been a lot of changes over the years. REALbasic is now Real Studio and it bears little resemblance to the software development environment that was around when we started (see Figure 1).

Computers have changed, too: we now all have mobile phones in our pockets that are probably more powerful than the computer I had in 2002 when I started this magazine (see the iPhone 4S review on page 20).

The future's brighter than ever, though not without challenges (you can see what Bob Keeney thinks in the interview I did with him). I hope you'll continue with us as we ride this ride!

In This Issue

If you've heard of Real Studio's report writing features but have yet to explore them, JC Cruz will walk you through everything in his in-depth article.

On a lighter note, I explain how my obsession with comics inspired me to create my own daily comic reader for iPad using Real Studio.

In other articles, I explain how to use Real Studio plugins, Paul writes about using large objects in databases and web services, and Bob covers the importance of client communication. Enjoy!
