Rejected! (Or Not?) - Apple Sends Developers Mixed Signals

Ah, Apple gone and done it now! SXSW debuted this year's hottest social trend: Mass Twitter-steria, and now the 140 character mob has its torches and pitchforks ready to storm Cupertino. Or not.

Let's back up a step. Following the Apple SDK announcement, pretty much everyone and their neck-bearded uncle rushed to developer.apple.com and started their download engines. 100,000 of them in the first few days alone. That's a lot of love. And even more expectation.

Is the iPhone Ready to Take on Gaming?

Is the iPhone Ready to Take on Gaming?

Not only did the iPhone serve RIM at the SDK event. But after Apple showcased the demos of Touch Fighter, Spore, and Super Monkey Ball on the iPhone, Nintendo and Sony better watch out as well. Game controls utilized the accelerometer and multi-touch while the graphics were displayed on that crystal clear screen--make no mistake--Apple is ready to revolutionize gaming.

With the early glimpses into the gaming capabilities of the iPhone, we've learned that:

  1. The possibilities are endless
  2. It looks really fun
  3. Apple has a potential gaming jackpot in their hands

If we have learned anything from the current console "war" between the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and the Nintendo Wii—consumers are more interested in buying the "fun" games as opposed to those that are graphically superior. At its bare minimum, gaming on the iPhone can be likened to a ridiculously advanced wii-mote. At its maximum potential? Quite possibly the best mobile gaming experience ever.

Earlier today Chad asked about what your favorite gaming experiences on the iPhone might be. But how will Apple deal with the business side of it? How can the iPhone conquer gaming? Find out after the jump.

iPhone Set to Star at WWDC '08

iPhone Set to Star at WWDC '08

Apple has sent out double Golden Gate-gilded (twin-bridged?) announcements for its 2008 WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) set to rock San Fran from June 9th through the 13th.

"A landmark event. In more ways than one."

Indeed. Sporting the current apples of Steve Jobs' eyes, the MacBook Air and, of course, the 800 pound gorilla in the developer room, the iPhone (and it's brand-spanking new SDK), we're definitely in for "Everything Mac. Everything iPhone."

CEOh-Snap! RIM Boss Plays iPhone Jeopardy

This. Is. iPhone JEOPARDY!

Welcome everyone to the smartphone space where competing CEO's answer in nothing resembling the form of a question. Lucky for us, however, they're quick on the buzzer and their bold, bodacious pontifications, more often than not, come right back to bite them on their assets.

"Why We're Not Worried about the iPhone" for 100

Previously on iPhone Jeopardy, smartphone innovator and Folio-smasher, Ed Colligan of Palm/Treo fame jumped on the iPhone launch:

3G Rumorpalooza: Intel Inside?

The Inquirer is rumormongering that the fabled iPhone 3G (in this case, iPhone version 3, rocking 3G HSDPA data speeds) will, like big brother Mac before it, be undergoing a brain transplant. And Intel once again has the technology.

Crutching itself on a CeBIT slide showing Intel's MID (mobile internet device) roadmap, they point to a very conspicuous iPhone image in the bottom right corner. Wassup indeed?

Flash on iPhone: Video Dream or Privacy Nightmare?

Flash on iPhone: Video Dream or Privacy Nightmare?

The internet in your pocket. That’s what Steve Jobs and Apple advertising have promised us since Macworld 2007. Not the watered-down WAP internet, the server-pre-rendered kinda-sorta-internet, or the stunted mobile internet. Just... the internet.

In large part, they’ve succeeded. By promoting open, standards-based support for HTML (hyper-text markup language) structure, CSS (cascading style sheet) design, Javascript actions, and the hybrid interactive richness of AJaX (Asynchronous Javascript and XML) that enable WebApps, Apple has brought us the closest thing yet to a desktop-class browsing experience on our mobiles.

About the only thing missing, many would argue, is Flash.

Adobe’s ubiquitous interactive, multi-media technology powers everything from online office apps to easily embedded video clips to in-our-face banner adds. It also powers it’s own “cookie” (online state-saving and tracking) system. Didn’t know that? Advertisers do. They already exploit Flash cookies on the desktop. And as much as we want our videos clips on the iPhone, they want their cookies more. After all, the iPhone is the “next generation mobile” devices -- the one that know everything about us, including who we are and where we are, with all of our private contacts and secure contents just there for the tracking, aggregating, and selling.
