Livestand from Yahoo! set to take on The Daily

Yahoo! has announced that it will be launching an iPad application that could rival the recently launched The Daily.  Coming in the first half of 2011, Livestand will be available for the iPad and will deliver news personalized to your interests, location and even time of day.

Livestand will take the form of a highly visual magazine. Yahoo! will use the app to entice advertisers, by offering ads within the digital pages. The ads served will include media rich interactive content that can even be based on location. We assume the ad revenue will enable Yahoo! To deliver the content as a free app without subscription, this has not been confirmed.

NBA Jam for iPhone slam dunks its way into the App Store!

NBA Jam by EA Sports has made its way into the App Store and onto iPhone and iPod touch! If you are wondering whether this the same game that you -- and everyone else -- loved to play on SNES, the answer is yes! EA Sports has brought back the action-packed in-your-face NBA thriller!

The game is just as fun as it way years ago and includes all of the current NBA teams, and they are filled with some current stars as well as stars from yesteryears. You have to beat challenges to unlock certain older players but it is fun enough to make it worth your while. Also available are in-app purchases that will allow you to gain access to even more items in the game. So far after a short time with the game it seems as if it is spot on with the SNES version and the controls are easy to use and the action is non-stop. So what are you waiting for? Check out the video and screenshots after the break, then go get your dunk on and then come tell us your thoughts on the iPhone version in the comments below!

[ $4.99 - iTunes Link ]

Games coming to Apple TV in iOS 4.3?

According to one of TUAW’s tipsters, there is every possibility that the Apple TV is heading towards online gaming with the iOS 4.3 update. When we say online gaming, we don’t mean the poor offerings of Game Center, this could go much further.

References found in the latest beta of iOS 4.3, refer to “ATVThunder” and indicate online games and merchandising will soon be available via iTunes and then to your Apple TV. Think Apple’s version of Xbox Live! The possibilities are endless and could include scheduling online games with friends, viewing leaderboards and much more.

Last.fm will soon require subscription to stream to iPhone

Beginning February 15, Last.fm will require a subscription to stream music to your iPhone and it will be ad-free. Here's what Last.fm's VP of production, blog Matthew Hawn had to say:

On the Last.fm website an ad-supported, free-to-listeners model is what supports our online radio services in the US, UK and Germany. In other markets and on emerging mobile and home entertainment devices, it is not practical for us to deliver an ad supported radio experience, but instead, we will migrate to what we believe is the highest quality, lowest cost ad-free music service in the world.
