Gameloft: 13% of Revenue from iPhone, Nobody Making Money on Android

Gameloft -- and other developers according to Gameloft -- are cutting back on development for Google's Android platform due to the "weakness" of the Android Market. According to Reuters, Gameloft finance director Alexandre de Rochefort said:

We have significantly cut our investment in Android platform, just like ... many others. [The Android Market] is not as neatly done as on the iPhone. Google has not been very good to entice customers to actually buy products. On Android nobody is making significant revenue."

On Google ChromeOS, VoIP-only gPhones, and How the iPhone Benefits

When Google first mentioned ChromeOS, we figured it was their reaction to launching Android, then seeing Palm come out with webOS, and smacking their heads -- they could have done that with V8! (What, too nerdy?)

Three20 Framework and More on App Store Screening for Private APIs

A little while ago we posted about Apple's new use of a static analysis tool to find private API calls and reject the apps that make them. Rather than Storm8 or Unity this time, however, it's former Facebook developer Joe Hewitt's pioneering Three20 framework that's getting caught.

Steve Jobs Tells iPodRip to Change the Name -- Not a Big Deal

Steve Jobs Tells iPodRip to Change the Name -- Not a Big Deal

Steve Jobs sent a curt reply to The Little App Factory, telling them it was not a big deal for them to change their Apple trademark-infringing, iPodRip product name.

Rewind: iPodRip was software designed to pull media off an iPod (no, not for piracy, but to recover files in the event you lost them on the host machine). Apple's lawyers complained. The Little App Factory's John Devor wrote a plea for help. Jobs responded in typical fashion.

Long story shorter: iPodRip has been renamed iRip.

Sony Online Service to Take on iTunes

Sony is planning to launch their answer to iTunes, offering music, movies, books, mobile apps, and more... sometime in the future. No, they haven't announced a date yet, but given their portfolio of PS3, PSP, Sony Reader, and how more and more is being integrated into their Bravia televisions, while the MP3 player market is dwindling, convergent devices are on the rise. (Of course, they'll need to fix their smartphone offerings and get them integrated into their own platform as well --hello PSPhone, can you get to that already?)

Opera Mobile 10 Beta for Windows Mobile vs. iPhone 3G Safari -- Browser Battle

Our good friend Phil over at sibling site WMExperts got his geeky hands on Opera Mobile 10 beta for Windows Mobile and did what any self-respecting editor would do -- took it one on one with the great one -- Safari. Well, technically Safari running on last year's slower hardware, the iPhone 3G (as opposed to the much faster iPhone 3GS), but it's not a final build of. The results?

Opera Mobile 10 beta isn't quite as good as Safari on iPhone 3G, but it's getting there. Again, not iPhone 3GS, but not a final build of
