Sun, 02 May 2010 10:29:00 EDTAn eggplant is an eggplant, right? Tastes the same everywhere. Is very popular everywhere. But in the U.S. it sells for about $1 a pound, but only about 50 cents a pound in Turkey, and 25 cents a pound in the Philippines. And this is with a very weak dollar. It led me to think about Purchasing Power Parity, or PPP, which is the main thing that anyone who travels a lot thinks about. We all know that many things are cheaper in other countries, particularly developing countries. We also know that it is to these developing countries--whether Turkey and the Philippines, but especially to Mexico, China, India, and now Brazil and Russia--that a lot of jobs are going.

The UI Designer has been out for nearly a week. Have you tried it? If so, please drop me a line at brad.wery@PowerToTheBuilder.com. I would like to hear what you think of it.
I'm trying something new with the UI in this application. I've gone away from using a menu and developed a semi-ribbon type interface. I'm curious to know what you think of this. If it's something the community would be interested in maybe I can develop it more. I think it would take a bit of work to get it to look and act like the Microsoft Ribbon control but it could be doable.
If you have any other idea's for controls that would make your application bette please let me know. I will look into how much effort it would take to build it. Also, if you have any enhancement idea's for the current controls, I would like to hear about it
