iPhone SDK Event Showcases Games

Wait…You mean it’s a phone, an internet portal, an iPod AND a gaming device? Apple is certainly following through with this one-gadget-to-rule-them-all motif. In fact, the game demos pretty much stole the show at the iPhone SDK Roadmap event.

Using the three-axis iPhone accelerometer, multi-touch, and pretty much everything else that the iPhone is capable of doing—portable gaming is officially on notice.

Apple Officially Unveils iPhone SDK, Enterprise Roadmap, Game Support, and Lots of Other Stuff

Months ago Apple made a promise to developers, committing to one day release an SDK and open the iPhone for platform development. Today it made good on its promise, and reaffirmed that old adage "good things come to those who wait".

Apple to RIM: You Been Served!

Apple to RIM: You Been Served!

During the iPhone SDK Roadmap event today, Apple strolled up to RIM, slipped out a glove, dropped a brick into it, and slapped out one "boom" of a challenge.

Blackberry is an email monster, no doubt about it. Intoxicating "push" delivery and back-end IT administration have made it the darling of the enterprise world. But it isn't without problems: due to the centralized server-model RIM utilizes (where all mail is collected by RIM prior to being pushed out to end-users), there's a single point of failure for all Blackberry users everywhere (as seen in two recent, service-wide outages) -- and a single point of exploit as well (where an attack on RIM's server could compromise the privacy and security of the entire user base).

iPhone Apps to be Exclusively Developed on Mac? Sorry Windows

iPhone Apps to be Exclusively Developed on Mac? Sorry Windows

For those of you looking for forward to building apps for iPhone, don't plan on writing that code on Windows. According to story posted on iPodNN, Apple will be making its upcoming iPhone SDK available for Mac only, with Leopard as required OS. That?s not surprising given that iPhone runs on an embedded flavor of OSX, and it?s not as though Mac software can be written in Microsoft Visual Studio. Apparently Apple will be releasing an enhanced version of Xcode, with built-in tools for iPhone application development.

So there you have it. Buy a Mac mini, fire up Xcode, and start compiling.

Apple Will Open the Kimono to Developers Outside of iTunes Walled Garden

Apple Will Open the Kimono to Developers Outside of iTunes Walled Garden

Today is the big day for soon-to-be iPhone developers, anxiously awaiting for an SDK to drop from the mothership. Before that happens, I'd like to clear up some comflicting reports that are spreading through the ether. As you might have guessed, Apple's distribution portal for native iPhone applications will be iTunes, just as it now for iPod media and games. However, according to my sources that will only apply to commercial (as in BUY NOW) software.

Free and or open source applications won't by tied to the great orifice that is iTunes. Those applications will have a method for loading on iPhone, provided they adhere to Apple's development guidelines and are signed with a special digital signature, ala Symbian, for security purposes.

Hey, Steve. China's On the Phone, It's for You

Hey, Steve. China's On the Phone, It's for You

China's largest wireless carrier wants to bring iPhone to its customers. According to sources within China Mobile, the company is deeply interested in negotiating a deal with Apple, though no formal talks have yet taken place. I guess the Chinese have given up on trying to clone the iPhone after recent failed attempts.

China represents one of the worlds largest and fastest growing wireless markets. One that could prove very lucrative for Apple, and fill its coffers with lots of Yuan.

Steve Jobs to iPhone Users: "No Flash for You!"

So much for native Flash support in iPhone. In an interview yesterday, Steve Jobs told reporters that Adobe's mobile Flash player "isn't good enough" for iPhone, shunning its possible inclusion in the product. He went on to make an oddly elusive and interesting comment, saying "There's this missing product in the middle,", hinting that Apple may have said "missing" product in development. What could it be? It won't be Silverlight, that much is certain.
