Slingplayer Mobile for iPhone Goes 3G in App Store!

Slingplayer Mobile [$29.99 - iTunes link] for iPhone has just hit version 1.2 and the single-line update says it all -- 3G streaming enabled.

And it seems to be in App Stores outside the US and beyond AT&T. (If it's not in your App Store, let us know.)

It was a long time and a lot of controversy coming, but it's here, so go get it and let us know how it's working for you!

[Thanks to Scott for the head's up!]

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...

Crazy Earphones from Japan. Would You Wear Them?

Crazy Earphones from Japan. Would You Wear Them?

Japan's Solid Alliance decided that the bar for "crazy earphones" just hadn't been raised high enough and so they've released these adorable/idiotic plastic embellishments which make you look like you have various implements coming out of your ears. For those who may not have already seen the first set of earphones they consisted of: sushi, paws, banana and a large bolt. These 4 new earbuds consist of: an apple with an arrow through it, a knife which looks like it is stabbed through your head, a mushroom, and a little ear.

They'll cost you ¥2000, or about $20 and have a 3.5mm adaptor so they will fit in your iPhone or iPod touch.

So, am I the only one who likes these earphones ? Would you ever buy Crazy Earphones for yourself... or a friend ?

Closed vs. Open, Control vs. Chaos -- What's Best for Apple, the iPhone and iPad?

Closed vs. Open, Control vs. Chaos -- What's Best for Apple, the iPhone and iPad?

Yesterday at Macworld two events helped clarify something I've been discussing with Dieter for a while now -- Apple, the iPhone and iPad, and closed vs. open systems, control vs. chaos. These two events were a presentation by John Gruber of Daring Fireball concerning the 10 biggest problems faced by Apple, and a brief conversation with Leo Laporte of TWiT about Google Buzz.

Quick App: NBC Olympics Mobile for iPhone and iPod touch

Quick App: NBC Olympics Mobile for iPhone and iPod touch

The 2010 Winter Olympics officially began yesterday and if you want to keep up with your country to see how well they are performing, the NBC Olympics Mobile app [iTunes Link - Free] for iPhone and iPod touch is a great companion piece that offers a ton of great features.

  • News, results and medal counts are all updated live.
  • Video on-demand: Those of you in the U.S. can watch NBC Olympics video clips and highlights. Sorry Canada!
  • Favorites: Save athletes, sports and nations as favorites
  • Push Notifications: Have results for your favorite sports pushed directly to your iPhone.
  • TV Coverage Schedule: View NBC's TV and online coverage schedule and set program reminders.
  • Athlete Bios and Sports Information: You can read up on all of the sports rules and get the full details about nations and teams.
  • Social networking: Share Olympic Games content with your friends directly on your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts.

Why Canadian users would be omitted from viewing video is beyond us, especially since they are hosting all of the events. Surely some sort of deal could have been made for those of you in Canada? Now if you throw that major fail aside, you have a great app to give you your daily dose of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Screenshots after the break!
