Ballmer on Bing as iPhone Default, Google and Apple Still "Stable"

Given the rumors surrounding Apple and Google lately, and the iPhone and Microsoft Bing, it's no wonder Mobile World Congress 2010 has raised both topics again, earning a smile from Steve Ballmer, and yet another "stable" comment from Google.

First up, Reuters has comments from Vic Gundotra, Google mobile engineering lead:

"Apple is a very close and valuable partner and we're very excited about the relationship we have with them today. We have no reason to believe that's going to change." [...] "We don't want to comment on those rumours. We think that relationship is stable."

Windows Phone Series 7 -- Is it Competition for the iPhone?

Windows Phone Series 7 -- Is it Competition for the iPhone?

Microsoft today announced their long anticipated -- possibly long delayed or oft re-started -- Windows Phone Series 7 and showed off a brand new user "experience" including deep social network integration and full on Zune services. (Every Windows Phone is a Zune, but they're not Zune phones -- clear?).

So, after my recent Round Robin Windows Phone review concerns, how did they do? My quick take, after the break!

Apple Banning iPhone Hackers (NOT Jailbreakers) from iTunes App Store?

It would appear that Apple has taken a more agressive approach to certain iPhone hackers by banning their Apple IDs from the iTunes App Store.

iPhone developer/hacker, Sherif Hashim, first received a message on his iPhone after attempting to log into iTunes saying:

“This Apple ID has been disabled for security reasons.”

iPhone 3GS Beats Nexus One on 3D Frame-rate Test

iPhone 3GS Beats Nexus One on 3D Frame-rate Test

Even though it's almost 6 months newer, Google's Android Nexus One isn't producing the same frame-rate as Apple's iPhone 3GS according to a Distinctive Developments test. In fact, it's lagging behind. The reason? iPhone 3GS is using Neon floating-point optimization and the Nexus One isn't.

Add this to the capacitive screen performance, multitouch keyboard, and It's interesting to see what Apple got right months or years ago, that others haven't finished or polished even today.

They may seem small or minor, but when taken as a whole those details create the user experience iPhone owners enjoy.

Video after the break!

UPDATED: Adobe Blocks HTML5 Canvas Competition via "Secret Hold"?

UPDATED: Adobe Blocks HTML5 Canvas Competition via "Secret Hold"?

UPDATE: Adobe commenters below point us to OSNews, which states:

The concerns in question have to do with charter and scope, and are not exclusive to Adobe. The problem seems to be that all these documents - Microdata, RDFa, Canvas 2D API, HTML5 document - are all lumped together, and some are confused about whether or not an objection to a single one can block all of them. The answer is clear: no, it cannot. In other words, Masinter's objection does not block HTML5.

They further claim that since the objection was discussed in a publicly accessible archive, it wasn't secret either. A tempest in a teapot, perhaps, but the debate concerning Flash and HTML5 shows no signs of breaking soon...
