MobileViews Podcast 19: Pangea CEO Brian Greenstone Sets the iPhone Dev Switch Story Straight

Pangea Software has developed software for the Mac for over 20 years. CEO Brian Greenstone recently got a lot of attention from a report that he stopped developing for the Mac to focus on the iPhone. However, it turns out that this report is not correct. He stopped Mac game development about 2 or 3 years ago but has continued to developed photography related Mac apps. His interest in developing games for the iPhone is real, however. You can hear him discuss his background in this 28 minute 25 second long podcast.

Dell Hinting at Entering Smartphone or MID Market

I may be one of the few people who actually liked Dell’s Pocket PC devices way back when. I have both an Axim X5 (which was clunky and ugly but solid as a rock – and looked like one too) as well as the sleek, super-fast, and very functional Axim X50. I still think the X50 is one of the best Windows Mobile devices ever produced. So, I hope this items in ComputerWorld is more than a teaser…

Michael Dell hints at smartphones, mobile Internet devices

I hope Dell actually produces some kind of mobile device other than its Inspiron Mini netbooks. And, I hope they are as good as the old Axim X50 was (and still is for that matter – I use mine regularly even today).

Irony: Google Reader Recommends My Defunct Blog to Me :-(

googreadrec_irony_090323

My full-time job until last week Friday (Mar. 20) was to serve as the Editor for MobileAppsToday.com and MobileDevicesToday.com. Both blogs were shut down last week and are currently redirecting to the still live MobileContentToday.com (which I contribute to as a freelance writer). So, I found it extremely ironic when Google Reader suggested I subscribe to MobileDevicesToday.

Windows Mobile 6.5 Honeycomb Interface Loses Its Outlines.


Get Microsoft Silverlight

Note: This video requires Microsoft Silverlight to be installed on your PC or Mac

According to ars technica…

Feedback causes changes to Windows Mobile 6.5 honeycomb UI

But, hmm, it looks like the only change is that the outlines around the icons in the Windows Mobile 6.5 honeycomb menu has been removed. That’s a start, I guess. But, I think the whole honeycomb design should go. A simple easy to navigate straight row-column matrix would be much better and allow more icons per screen.

MobileViews Mini-Podcast 5: MobileAppsToday Podcast Name Change

Anyone who has taken a look around lately knows that we are in tough economic times. And, unfortunately, I’m not anymore immune to it than any other ordinary person. The owner (WebMediaTrends) of the blogs I’ve been editing told last week Wednesday (Mar. 18, 2009) that business conditions led them to decide to shut both the MobileAppsToday.com and MobileDevicesToday.com blogs for which I served as the Editor. So, my co-Editor Bryan Barletta and I were both let go as of this past Friday (Mar. 20). I will, however, continue to write items for the surviving mobile industry focused blog MobileContentToday.com as a freelance writer. However, I will be writing on a much reduced schedule. You can read my announcement on that blog at…

MobileApps & MobileDevices Folded Into MobileContentToday

The good news is that the MobileAppsToday/MobileDevicesToday Podcasts were always my own personal side project. So, I own the feed and its contents. As you can see here, I plan to continue to produce mobile technology focused podcasts going forward. If you have topics or guests to suggest, please let me know. And, if you are interested in sponsoring the podcast or a podcast segment, please contact me for further discussions.
