LinkedIn and Twitter updates for BlackBerry 10 focus on search

Zynga releases Running With Friends, from Eat Sleep Play

Zynga has released a new game in the 'With Friends' series (which started back when the company acquired Words with Friends, a very popular Scrabble-like iOS game). Running With Friends is, as you can see above, not a fitness app, though that does sound fun. Instead, it's an endless running game, based on the Running of the Bulls, where you compete with friends to earn points and distance. The game has you running, jumping, and dodging obstacles, all while trying to earn as many points as possible. As you might expect, the title is freemium, so it's free to download, and there are in-app purchases available if you'd like extra currency. Most of the games in the "With Friends" series have been super casual so fa

Apple wins "iBooks" trademark case

Have you ever heard of Black Tower Press? Back in 2011, the small New York publisher of sci-fi and fantasy books filed a trademark suit claiming that it had the rights to use the term "iBooks". Yesterday a New York court ruled in Apple's favor, stating that the publisher's mark -- ibooks -- and Apple's electronic bookstore trademark would not be confused by consumers. Black Tower obtained the "ibooks" mark in 2006 when it purchased another publishing company that had used the term for an imprint selling sci-fi and horror novels. However, Black Tower never obtained a registered trademark for "ibooks", nor did the predecessor company. Apple did obtain registered trademarks. In 1999, it obtained a license from a

Paracable Offering Colorful Paracord-Wrapped Lightning-to-USB Cables [iOS Blog]

Daily iPhone App: Zello lets you chat walkie-talkie style with friends, co-workers

After years of living in an area with no cell service, but a very active radio tower, I grew accustomed to talking with my husband using a ham radio instead of text messaging. Now that cell coverage has improved, we no longer use our ham radios and have switched to the iPhone. To recapture that walkie-talkie style of communication, we recently started using the Zello+ Walkie Talkie app. Zello+ is an instant, radio-style communication app that uses your mobile broadband connection to exchange short audio messages. The app lets you talk one-on-one to a single person or in a channel with a group of people. It requires a Zello account that is available for free. After you setup your account in the Zello app, you can add Zello contacts and start talking. The app has a lar

Sony schreibt nach fünf Jahren wieder schwarze Zahlen

Endlich kehrt Sony nach fünf Jahren in die Gewinnzone zurück. Wie der japanische Elektronikgigant heute bekanntgab, belief sich im Geschäftsjahr 2012 / 2013 (es endet am 31. März) der Gewinn auf 43 Milliarden Yen, das entspricht etwa 331 Millionen Euro. Vor einem Jahr hatte Sony noch einen Nettoverlust von 457 Milliarden Yen melden müssen. Zum Erfolg trug neben dem Verkauf von Immobilien auch der in jüngster Zeit schwächere Yen-Kurs bei. Um dauerhaft für schwarze Zahlen zu sorgen, muss Konzernchef Kazuo Hirai das Kerngeschäft wettbewerbsfähiger machen. Die TV-Sparte ist seit Jahren nicht profitabel, und der Verkauf von Digitalkameras und Spielkonsolen wird nach Einschätzung von Sony in diesem Geschäftsjahr zurückgehen. Das

Regenfälle lassen Apples Glaswürfel-Store in New York fluten

Nach heftigen Regenfällen in New York drang gestern Wasser in den bekannten «Glas-Würfel» Apple-Store an der Fitfh Avenue. Das Wasser drang kurz nach 8 Uhr in den «24/7»-Apple-Store ein. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt sollen sich gemäss der «New York Post» rund 15 Personen im Geschäft aufgehalten haben. Bis um 10 Uhr konnte der grösste Teil des Wassers abgepumpt werden. Der Apple Store war während des gesamten Wassereinbruchs offen. Zwischenzeitlich musste allerdings der West-Flügel geschlossen werden. Sicherheitshalber deckten die Mitarbeiter die iPads mit Plastik-Planen ab, damit diese keinen Schaden nehmen. Schlussendlich soll es an den ausgestellten Gerätschaften keinen Schaden gegeben haben. Dem Bericht eines Handwerkers zufolge könnte der Wassereinbruch mit den Umbauarbeiten am Dach des Apple Stores zusammenhängen, welche im Jahr 2011 fertiggestellt worden sind. Es scheint sich um ei

'The Loop' Launches New Magazine for iOS [iOS Blog]

Jim Dalrymple, the veteran Apple journalist behind The Loop, is launching a new magazine for iOS devices today. Rather than simply being an iOS version of the existing site, the magazine version of The Loop is a separate publication hosting longer form writing from a variety of contributors and perspectives. As Dalrymple notes in his welcome message:For many years people have been asking me why I didn't release an app for the iPhone and iPad. The answer was simple: I couldn't find anything that added value to what I did on The Loop. I wanted something more than a side-scrolling news app that basically imitated what I'd already linked to or written on the Web site.

Die nun für rechtswidrig erklärten Bedingungen belasten gemäss den Richtern den Verbraucher in einer unangemessenen Weise, was nicht im Einklang mit der Datenschutzgesetzgebung stehe. Beispielsweise wurde die «globale Einwilligung», mit welcher der Nutzer Apple gestattet, die eigenen Daten zu nutzen, für rechtswidrig erklärt. Der Nutzer kann solche Vollmachten nicht pauschal ausstellen, ohne zu wissen, für welchen Zweck die Informationen verwertet werden.

The idea on this one seems great, and apparently the company picked up some money from a pitch on the Shark Tank TV show. The lock has both standard key-based and wireless mechanisms, so instead of using your key, you can simply put your smartphone or a branded fob up to the lock, and it'll open up for you. You can also send a key to someone else's smartphone, so if they need to get in your house for some reason, you can send them a temporary key that only works for a given amount of time. That's great, and because the lock is still a standard mechanical lock, it'll

Daily iPhone App: Wizard Ops Tactics offers well-made tactical battles

Developers Phyken Media have now returned to the world of Wizard Ops, though not the genre, with a new title called Wizard Ops Tactics. As you may have reckoned from the title, Wizard Ops Tactics is a turn-based strategy game, where you move various wizards and combatants around a 3D board, casting spells across various terrains to beat the other side. Just like the original Wizard Ops, the graphics on this one can get a little goofy, but also like the original game, the depth of game

Sony has decided to waive its usual $99 fee for PlayStation Mobile developers, meaning that anyone can join the developer network and publish games on its platforms for free. That's a big move, and while it might not mean a boost in PlayStation Mobile publishing (there are other hiccups, such as the difficulty of game creation and the limited size of the market), it does show just how open Sony is to independent software developers.
