Politics and Practicality the Reason for no Flash Player on iPhone... and iTablet?

Politics and Practicality the Reason for no Flash Player on iPhone... and iTablet?

Daring Fireball has an interesting post up regarding the continued lack of a Flash Player for the iPhone, and the reasons why Flash support for the iTablet/iSlate/iPad is unlikely:

I’ll leave the last word to Apple COO Tim Cook, who a year ago said, “We believe in the simple, not the complex. We believe that we need to own and control the primary technologies behind the products we make, and participate only in markets where we can make a significant contribution.”

Flash is owned and controlled by Adobe.

iPhone AMOLED Screens to Bring Back Apple II-style Green on Black?

Marco Arment has a fun post up today about designing for AMOLED (active matrix light emitting diode) screens, currently used for Google's Nexus One, and something many hope Apple adopts for the 4th generation iPhone and -- even though cost and supply prohibitive -- the upcoming iTablet/iSlate/iPad as well.

Updated: Flurry Analytics Show iTablet Running... iPhone 3.2?!

UPDATE: 9to5mac followed up with Flurry and heard back from Peter Farago , VP of Marketing. Farago confirmed that they'd seen iPhone devices running OS 4.0 but those left the Cupertino campus whereas the tablet device did not (for secrecy reasons?). Also, the types of apps being tested (news, books, games) matched what they believed a tablet device would run. Read the complete statement via the link a

Crazy Rumor-de-Jour: AT&T iPhone Exclusivity to End this Wednesday, Verizon iPhone, iTablet "One More Thing"?

No one outside the contract signers at Apple and AT&T know for sure when US iPhone exclusivity ends, but HotHardware is stirring up a storm with the rumor that it ends this Wednesday, at Apple's "Come see our latest creation" event:

According to an inside source close to the going-ons involved in all of this, a new tablet of some sort may not be the only thing on deck for next Wednesday though. We have been led to believe by an inside source that AT&T will lose their iPhone exclusivity on the same day

TC: Steve Jobs says iTablet "Will be the Most Important Thing I've Ever Done"

TC: Steve Jobs says iTablet "Will be the Most Important Thing I've Ever Done"

Not much hear besides the title -- Steve Jobs says the iTablet/iSlate/iPad "will be the most important thing I've ever done" -- which TechCrunch says they haven't heard first hand but have heard second and third hand from multiple sources. Wait... what?

Okay, let's have fun and assume it's true. This from the man who brought or helped bring the Apple II, Macintosh, iPod, iTunes, Apple Retail, Pixar, and the iPhone to market? If he's really that excited about the tablet, then it will be tough to set expectations any hi

Palm Pre, Palm Pix, webOS Review from an iPhone Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

Palm Pre, Palm Pix, webOS Review from an iPhone Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

My first smartphone was a Palm Treo 600 and so my last 2009 Smartphone Round Robin "away" review focusing on Palm's new webOS platform as embodied by the Palm Pre and Palm Pix does not lack for symmetry. Between the two, last year I reviewed the Palm Treo Pro which I quipped was more HTC than Palm, ran Windows Mobile and not a Palm-made OS, and had a keyboard that was hard to consider "pro" level. 3 years of round robin, three totally different platforms from Palm, and only this review for me to try and make my own sense out of it.

Luckily I had the mobile accomplisher himself, our editor-in-chief Dieter Bohn to show me Palm's new platform and their new devices, and the truly exceptional community over at PreCentral.net Forums to help understand where it's at and where it's going.

(And just a reminder, every day you post on that PreCentral.net thread, or any of the official Round Robin threads, is another day you're entered to win one of six (6!) new smartphones!)

Now let's get this on...

Google CEO - Relationship with Apple "Stable, Stable"

Google CEO - Relationship with Apple "Stable, Stable"

AppleInsider reports that during Google's quarterly earnings call, CEO Eric Schmidt was asked about Google's relationship with Apple, and responded:

"I, as a former board member, have a special spot for Apple in my heart, but I will tell you Apple is a very well run company. They have a lot of very good stuff coming. We have a couple of very good partnerships with them, and we also compete with them in a couple of areas. My guess is that is a pretty stable situation for awhile."

Review: NDrive USA Navigation for iPhone

Review: NDrive USA Navigation for iPhone

(Ndrive Navigation for iPhone Forum Review by cjvitek. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!)

NDrive USA [$32.99 - iTunes link] is a new GPS app which features turn by turn direction, entering the already crowded marketplace. NDrive prides itself on a simple interface, and when looking at the map, that is readily apparent. The map itself has little of the clutter that some of the other apps have – no different colors for different land types, no buildings popping in, no markers for POIs, etc. Just you, the map, and the route. Some people may prefer this approach, others may not. I will point out that in some locations, you do have 3D buildings appear – certainly not in Edinburg TX, however.
