Sony’s Networked Application Platform — SNAP to you and me, seems an interesting move for Sony adopting as it does the open source version of what is essentially powering Apple and it’s devices. I have not used and Sony development tools before but i don’t seem to recall them using FOSS or even of making a good fist of things when they wrote consumer facing software. The MiniDisk interfaces were absolutely dire to use and in performance.
Not sure what you get when you register as the form has failed on me each time i try and use it, bit Sony like i’m afraid, still we live in hope.
