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!

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.

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?

19

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 ?
