Apple: HTTP Live Stream Technology Now Required for Streaming Video

HTTP live stream technology is now required for streaming video according to Apple's new iPhone developer RSS feed.

An innovative feature of iPhone OS 3.0 is support for HTTP Live Streaming technology. One of the great benefits this technology delivers is the ability to dynamically adjust to varying network bandwidth conditions. It lets you store multiple video clips of different quality on the server, and then deliver the one that matches what the requesting customer is capable of viewing given the network they have access to. Use of it is now required for all applications which deliver streaming video. You must include a low quality stream of no more than 64 Kbps for your app to resort to when network conditions demand it, along with the higher quality streams you want to deliver to your customers when the network can support it.

Amateur Surgeon Christmas Edition -- Bloody Good Fun for the Holidays

Amateur Surgeon Christmas Edition -- Bloody Good Fun for the Holidays

Amateur Surgeon Christmas Edition [Free - iTunes link] by Adult Swim is for anyone who enjoyed the regular version, the kid's game Operation, or whose tastes for Xmas humor turn decidedly towards the dark.

You are Dr. Alan Probe, an Amateur Surgeon who has had a horrible midair collision with Santa's sleigh. Now it is up to you to try to heal the injured faery-folk and save Xmas. This will be a difficult feat, as you have few skills and your tools would, frankly, scare an inquisitor from the middle ages. (What, the thought of toy grabber-arms and and etch-o-sketches as surgical gear doesn't terrify you?).

If you have a steady hand and don't mind a splash of gore in your cartoony fun, give this game a shot. The power of Christmas compels you! ….flatline

Verizon Prepared to Handle iPhone in 2010 -- If Exclusivity Ends with AT&T

Verizon Prepared to Handle iPhone in 2010 -- If Exclusivity Ends with AT&T

If Apple ends US iPhone exclusivity with AT&T in 2010, could Verizon handle the handset that currently crushes service in data-dense cities like San Francisco and New York? BusinessWeek scored the quote from Verizon Wireless Chief Technology Officer Anthony Melone:

"We have put things in place already. We are prepared to support that traffic."

"It comes down to backing that process with money. We've been more consistent than any carrier in the last 10 years investing year over year."

"We will handle it if we ever get it."

Nokia S60 N97 mini and Maemo N900 Review -- Smartphone Round Robin

Nokia S60 N97 mini and Maemo N900 Review -- Smartphone Round Robin

How does the iPhone compare to sibling site NokiaExperts.com's two platforms, trusty Symbian S60 OS as seen in the N97 mini and the next generation Maemo OS of the N900? That's the question I'm looking to answer in TiPb's first week of the 3rd annual Smartphone Round Robin

I’ll confess from the start that I wasn't terribly familiar with Nokia’s platforms coming into this review. They dominate the rest of the world, of course, but for a variety of reasons they haven’t made much of a dent here in North America yet. Lucky for me, the SPE network has reached across the pond to Seattle (hey, there must be ponds between Montreal and Seattle!) to bring Matthew Miller to the table this year. His tremendous knowledge and enthusiasm -- along with the incredible help I received from the NokiaExperts community -- are the only reason this review was able to happen. So to him and to them; thanks.

(Speaking of the NokiaExperts community, remember you can still jump on that thread and each day you reply, you're entered to win your choice of Nokia smartphones, including the two reviewed below!)

Now let's get it on... after the break!
