Boom Town: Apple Buying AdMob Competitor Quatro Wireless

Boom Town: Apple Buying AdMob Competitor Quatro Wireless

Boom Town claims several sources have confirmed that Apple is getting into the in-app advertising business by buying AdMob competitor Quattro Wireless for $275 million.

Since Apple currently dominates the mobile app space, bolstering their cut of profits with a cut of in-app advertising is likely good business for them. It's all about the eyeballs, and if those eyeballs are locked on iPhones and iPod touches, why let Google gobble it all up?

Hollywood Finally Set to Allow "Buy Once, Watch Anywhere'?

Hollywood Finally Set to Allow "Buy Once, Watch Anywhere'?

The New York Times is reporting that one of the holy grails of digital media, the ability to buy a piece of content like a movie once and watch it on all your devices, from iPhone to iPod to Apple TV to Xbox 360 to PS3 to PC might actually be coming our way via the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE). Currently 5 major studios including Warners, NBC Universal, Sony, Paramount, and Fox (but not Disney) are working on DECE with Microsoft, Cisco, Comcast, Intel and Best Buy, and are set to add Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, Netflix, Tesco, Cox Communications, Liberty Global and others (but not Apple) to the list.

Under the proposed system, proof of digital purchases would be stored online in a so-called rights locker, and consumers would be permitted to play the movies they bought or rented on any DECE-compatible device.

iPhone 4.0 Want List: MobileFinder App

iPhone 4.0 Want List: MobileFinder App

When we made our "Dear Santa Jobs: All We Want for iPhone 4.0 is..." holiday post, one of the items we didn't include but which came up frequently in the comments is a Mobile Finder app. And it's definitely something we want in iPhone 4.0 as well.

Now we're sure most of our readers want a full blown Mac OS X Finder or Windows Explorer type file browser -- and full, free file system access to go along with it. But let's keep things real. Given past history, we very much doubt Apple would provide that, at least not any time soon. The iPhone isn't a Mac in a phone for power users, it's an iPhone that hopes to redesign how mainstream users engage mobile technology (and it's sales success to date show that's a pretty compelling approach). Power users are the ones who Jailbreak to get that kind of system access anyway. But could there be a middle ground? We think so, and we think Apple has already shown how it could work...

Final Fantasy Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi "Working on a Project for iPhone"

It's nothing more than a quartet of lines in a 2010 Happy New Year Note, but it signals that yet another high profile game designer -- in this case Final Fantasy's Hironobu Sakaguchi -- has iPhone on his mind:

Oh, by the way, We are also working on a project for iPhone.
This should be released soon as well.
We will put our efforts together and do our best!
I'm sure you'll Love it.

Will it be Final Fantasy for iPhone? A version of his "long-awaited new blockbuster"? Something new entirely? Let us know if you have any ideas, but our excitement over another year of iPhone gaming is already going into overdrive.

TiPb at CES 2010!

TiPb at CES 2010!

That's right TiPb 'verse, for the first time ever I'm hitting CES with the rest of the Smartphone Experts crew -- because for the first time ever, Apple's not at Macworld, Macworld isn't in January, and iPhone stuff will be at CES!

If you're going to be there as well, if you're an App Store developer, an accessory maker, a fellow blogger, an Apple engineer with a secret HD iPhone or tablet-esque device to leak, or -- and especially -- a fellow TiPb member, ping me and let me know. I'm looking to fit in as much as is inhumanly possible.

All major iPhone and related stories will of course go up right here, and as you know there are a ton of ways to follow TiPb's feed.

Best of Smartphone Experts, 3 Jan 2010

Last week was a good one as usual for SPE, but next week we'll be blowing the walls out for CES: expect plenty of CES coverage from all of our sites. This year we'll have our biggest team ever at the show and are pumped up. All that CES coverage means we'll be taking the week off from the Smartphone Round Robin (excepting another group podcast on The Cell Phone Junkie, stay tuned!).
