Confusion surrounds Sony SNAP.

What’s going on with Sony and Objective-C? A Sony SNAP webpage was visible last night, which was touted as a new Objective-C based development platform on Linux, using CDT and ObjectiveEClipse. The webpage has been taken down, but at the time of writing is still visible thanks to Google’s cache. What’s interesting, is that ObjectivEClipse is no longer under active development, a fact which Doug Schaefer tweeted in response to the SNAP project.

Although details about SNAP are still hazy, Alex Blewitt decided to look on the bright side: “I’m thrilled that there is increasing interest in Objective-C generally, and specifically on the Eclipse platform.”
