comment What native spatially-enabled SDK options are there to deploy GIS data on iOS and Android mobile devices?
Well, I needed something to visualize my TileCache, so look at my answer below.

comment Which data format typically displays fastest in ArcMap?
@DanPatterson You can read/write file geodatabases (Simple Features) in projects that use gdal/ogr. Nowadays that includes most open source GIS projects. Granted, that if you are not on Windows, it still requires you to compile the filegdb driver yourself.

comment Creating a spatial PostGIS table as a result of a PostGIS query
yeah, so your approach and result are OK. Just like in GeoDatabases, the rows in the geometry column are made of serialized geometries. If you want to see the contents, just use ST_AsText on the geometry column, just like you would do with any other postgis table.

comment Reading data from file geodatabase using OleDbConnection?
out of curiosity, you have initialized ArcObjects somewhere, right? help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/arcobjects_net/conceptualhelp/…

comment Making custom, dynamically generated vector symbols in ArcGIS Desktop?
I know you can if you serve MXDs. I do not know if MSD services have this limitation... @KirkKuykendall are you afraid they do have the limation if not, besides performance, is an MXD service not an option?

comment Arcobjects in Python: assign interface to objects with feature (shape) geometry
COM and Python doesn't look very pretty, but this is the route that will get you what you want. +1 for getting this far so fast!

comment Arcobjects in Python: assign interface to objects with feature (shape) geometry
Everything is correct, except you do not want to call IFeature::Store using an UpdateCursor (it defeats the purpose of using an UpdateCursor). You want to call UpdateFeature instead. help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/arcobjects_net/componenthelp/…

comment Python module to delete SHP features (without Desktop GIS installed)
Ironically, IMHO this would be the most efficient solution as long as the schema does not change much...

@Julia yeah, that is what the second link I added in the comments talks about. Once they are filled, you can stop.

comment What is future of Silverlight with ArcGIS Platform?
I remember a statistic related to this. ArcObjects is the biggest COM library ever. It has orders of magnitude more COM objects than Office. Not that I promote it - but it is an indicator that there will be support for .NET/Silverlight/COM in the future.

comment Toward a protocol for encoding vector data as image
@MerseyViking Without having to repeat my answer again, let me put this in perspective in terms of CPU cycles (since your assumption is about premature optimization). Accessing L1 Cache = 1 CPU cycle, L2= 14 cycles, RAM~250 cycles, Disk=41,000,000 , Network (depends on bandwith, so lets be kind)= 240,000,000. I/O, whether disk-based or network-based(our case) is orders of magnitude slower. How is shifting load from the last portion of the spectrum into the first one "premature" by any scale?
