When Rama Dunayevich from Autodesk PR saw the magazine, she thought of Madonna's "Material Girl" video. I told her that never occurred to me. She replied with "Mentally thinking of George Harrison over Madonna is a badge of honor!" I'll take it.

Not yet. In the IMAGINE DESIGN CREATE scheme, IMHO simulation software comes under the DESIGN portion. Project Miller seems to be more in the CREATE portion, so I am not sure of that technology would be added to simulation software. What would you think if it was added to Autodesk Fusion 360 or Autodesk Inventor?

I am checking, but you need to realize that every Android phone is different. This is in contrast to when we develop applications for the iPad. There are some variations liek amount of memory, but basically the Application Program Interface (API) is the same. So we can code once, test on a few devices, adn we are good to go. Each Android phone requires separate coding and testing which is more expensive for us. It's like the old days when each vendor had its own flavor of Unix (e.g. IRIX, HP-UX, AIX, Solaris) but there was just one version of the Mac OS.
