  • iPad App Store half broken across the pond.

    UK iPad hopefuls and those who've already ordered and had a device shipped to your door have one slight issue to look forward to -- no mobile App Store. For the time being, iPad users who go to fire up the App Store app on the device will be greeted with a dialog box telling the horrendous tale of no support for their country. The issue is apparently because the App Store on the iPad requires a US-based email address and credit card number. VPN's can fake the first part fairly easy. The ...
  • XDA-Dev Forums releases Android app for those geeky to the core…

    If you're not in the smartphone tinkering scene, you probably haven't the slightest clue what/who/where XDA is. To keep it short: it's a massive collection of nerdy, intellectual knowledge all centered around (mainly) one common brand of smartphone -- HTC. There's been a few exceptions here and there along the way, but over the years, the forums have remained mostly true to their origins. Some hate it. Others admire them for it. Whatever side of the fence you're on, taking a simple stro...
  • Get Fennec for Android now! [Beta] [Update]

    Love to live on the edge? Want only the best in mobile browsing? Generally speaking, Mobile Safari on the iPhone is bar none, the best mobile browser. Opera Mini and Chrome on Android are both close seconds with everything else falling in somewhere distantly behind. Fennec however is extremely promising though only currently available in "official" form for the Nokia N900. WinMo has it's little dev port as well but that is pretty much dead. Android -- we know it's coming but "late 2010/ear...
  • Opera Mini submitted to App Store for approval. Death march to soon follow?

    iPhone/iPod Touch users who spend a pretty good minute on the web, today is a day to remember, for it is the day in which Opera submitted their iPhone version of Opera Mini to the App Store. The reason for the whole show is simply because, there's a fair chance that the ever so intelligent and common sense filled (/sarcasm) App Store approvers will reject the app. The reasoning if Apple does in fact do so isn't anything new. They'll simply label it as "duplicating functionality" of an app alr...
  • Fennec development for Windows Mobile/Phone canceled!

    WinMo and Windows Phone users hoping for a little mobile Firefox love thanks to the exceptionally good looking (and performing) "Fennec" will be utterly depressed to the point of no return this morning to learn that the mobile Firefox team has canceled any and all work on the mobile Microsoft build. They chalk it up to Microsoft's new development rules going into Windows Phone 7, namely the restriction on apps running in native code, instead requiring managed code through the likes of Silverlig...
  • RIM promises great things for BBM this week. Get’s all pushy with 3rd party apps.

    Not one, but two morsels of information for BlackBerry users today are ready for your consumption. First up, BlackBerry Messenger. According to RIM, within the next few days, "exciting new things" are coming to the Canadian based platform's "in-house" IM client. For BBM junkies, this is reason to celebrate as BBM isn't exactly the most often updated BlackBerry app, routinely going months upon months between updates. Good stuff. On a wider scale, RIM has also announced that push services a...
  • SpeakLike for Wordpress: Reliable, human-based translations allow you to yak it up no matter where you live.

    Go to the local county fair and walk around listening to the various languages and dialects you hear. Depending on where you live, the scope of spoken languages can actually be pretty expansive. Then think that no matter how many languages you think you are hearing in your little corner of the globe, it is but a tiny, minuscule drop in the bucket. Now take second to think about the millions of conversations that go on over the internet each and every day, on a much larger scale than your typi...
  • Destination unknown: Simplify discontinuing music streaming apps, changing direction.
    by Mike
    Posted March 15th, 2010 at 9:25 am
    Here's quite a shoker: Popular WiFi and 3G streaming app, Simplify, will be no more in its current form. Per a post on the Simplify company blog, Simplify as we have come to know it will be discontinued and the company as a whole changing direction. What direction are they going exactly? For that, we'll have to play the "wait and see" game with Simplify stopping short of describing any immediate goals on the linked post above. Support for their current apps will continue on for "at least 3 m...
  • iKat brings AR to the next level.
    by Mike
    Posted March 10th, 2010 at 10:58 am
    Last year, AR (augmented reality) was a huge splash in the tech world. The ability to lay over multiple layers of information on top of a real world video feed opened up countless doors for all kinds of services and applications. In the case of iKat (developed with Zentium’s D-Track software), the software overlays a cat on top of the video feed. It may seem pretty basic, but the number crunching required to actually pull it off and have it look decent is pretty involved. This use of AR is...
  • RIAA/labels wanted iTunes LP’s, not Apple.
    by Mike

    Last year when Apple was all jubilant about iTunes LP's, a lot of tech people were left scratching their heads wondering wtf was going on. Over the last few years, Apple has been promoting, marketing, and pushing an entire generation towards all you can eat, cheap music via a-la-carte methods. Albums and "special edition" LP's are a complete 180 from their general philosophy. That confusion was for good reason though. New information via GigaOhm (link currently down) has several industry...
