comment What is REST (in simple English)
Thanks for the link to "Learn REST: A Tutorial"! That's the first tutorial I've read that leaves me with the feeling I've learned something concrete. Everything else I've read (including the Wikipedia article) describe REST in only the most abstract ways, surrounded by technical jargon.

comment Is a simple iPhone app more appealing to users than a mobile website?
Indeed, but since the question never clarified this point, I felt it was at least worth mentioning.

comment Is there an opposite for the term “Backporting”?
From what I can tell, Backporting often can involve adapting the code to make sense in that version. For example, variable names could differ from version-to-version. The same can easily hold true in the either direction. Also, in my experience, patching has usually referred to the act of applying a patch to a binary.
