Spider Jack for Windows Phone: What’s wrong with this game?

Spider Jack for Windows Phone is a $2.99 game under the Xbox Live imprint in the Windows Phone Marketplace.

U.S. Defense Department standardized on an ancient version of Android

Muktware.com believes that the U.S. DoD’s choice to standardize on Android is a setback for iOS. But, it is really a setback for Android too.

Android Approved By Pentagon For DoD Usage, Major Setback For iPhone

Heres why. The DoD chose to standardize on some unidentified Dell device running Android OS 2.2 (Froyo). Froyo was released on May 20, 2010 and superseded by Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread) on Dec. 6, 2010. New smartphones based on Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) are currently emerging from the pipeline. So, the DoD standardized on a version of Android several generations old.

Merry Christmas to me from Apple: 6th-gen 8GB iPod nano sent to replace 1st-gen 4GB iPod nano

I received a Christmas (or perhaps, more accurately, Festivus) gift of sorts from Apple this afternoon.. My recalled first generation 4GB iPod nano was replaced by a silver colored sixth generation 8GB iPod nano (the one with a touch screen).

Am I a satisfied customer? Yep!

Happy Festivus Day!

Remember FloTV? AT&T Just bought its (Qualcomm’s) spectrum

A bit over a year ago, I asked:

Qualcomm Shuttering FLO TV By Year’s End. What Will Happen to the Former UHF Channel 55 Spectrum?

Flo TV streamed TV shows to feature phones with special Qualcomm hardware that processed signals in the spectrum that used to be UHF channel 55. Flo TV was created by Qualcomm to use the spectrum it bought from the FCC. I never quite understood how the service could scale even after speaking with its head of programming back in August 2009.
