PS3News.com Goes Mobile with Forum Runner and Tapatalk

850°
168w ago - As we continue implementing ideas from the 2011 Suggestions, today we have added mobile support to our Forums through both [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] applications.

Forum Runner is an Android / iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad App that allows you to browse this forum using a native client.

This means faster access for those users since it only downloads the actual forum information rather than all the extraneous images that slow down the mobile connection.

Forum Runner is free for Forum viewing and $1.99 for the full featured app that allows posting among the extras.

Video: Android Mobile Operating System Running on iPhone 2G!

222w ago - Planetbeing is back on the iPhone scene and brought us Android fully working on the iPhone 2G.

I don't know about you guys, but for me these are some nice news.

Here is his blog post, to quote: "I've been working on this quietly in the background. Sorry about the initial video quality, but YouTube promises that the quality will get better as the video gets processed more. The back part of the version I uploaded to Vimeo was cut off.

I think that says it all, really. Donations via paypal to planetbeing at gmail.com. If you'd like to help, come join #iphonelinux on irc.osx86.hu.

Thanks to CPICH for reversing support, harmn1, posixninja, jean, marcan and saurik for patches, and last but not least, TheSeven for his work on the FTL.

Pre-built images and sources at http://www.mediafire.com/?xqjzn12igfn. Read the README. For generic openiboot instructions, there's plenty now that you can search for.

It should be pretty simple to port forward to the iPhone 3G. The 3GS will take more work. Hopefully with all this groundwork laid out, we can make Android a real alternative or supplement for iPhone users. Maybe we can finally get Flash. "

258w ago - According to Arstechnica (linked above), a new [Register or Login to view links] suggests that Microsoft is looking to create a gaming platform that goes beyond just the Xbox 360 to the Web, console and mobile devices.

The job posting from August 10, 2009 states Microsoft is looking for a LIVE Community Director in the Entertainment & Devices Division.

This suggests that Microsoft is looking to bring the Xbox Live, Windows Mobile, and other similar properties closer together. More specifically, there's talk of a "casual and social gaming platform" that would be available via more than just one device.

To quote: The LIVE Engagement Team is looking for a LIVE Community Director to manage its LIVE community strategy and execution across a range of properties, from Xbox LIVE to Windows Mobile.

This senior position will play a vital role in the community space as the LIVE Engagement team builds and program's Microsoft's next-generation, LIVE-enabled casual and social gaming platform across the Web, the console, mobile and beyond.

268w ago - Since GT PSP was announced yesterday, we haven't really gotten a good look at what this big, little game actually plays like.

Sure, the first [Register or Login to view links] are impressive - but to see it running at a full 60fps is a completely different story...

Although the driving skills (as usual) leave something to be desired, you've not seen Trial Mountain look this good since Gran Turismo 4.

Top-secret Windows Mobile 6.5 Prototype Stolen in Barcelona

200°
283w ago - Here's the risk you take holding the cellphone industry's annual gathering in Barcelona, a city famous for its world class pickpockets.

Only hours after Microsoft announced the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5 – the software giant's answer to Apple's iPhone and Google's Android – a prototype phone loaded with a top-secret copy of the new software was lifted from an executive's pocket, the [Register or Login to view links] reported Thursday.

Microsoft was "in a panic," according to this report, fearing industrial espionage.

The phone had reportedly been loaned to the CEO of Telstra, the Australian telecommunications giant, to test before launch. He, in turn, handed it to an unnamed executive, who was apparently pickpocketed that evening. According to the Telegraph:

"A spokesman for the Australian company confirmed the theft had happened. 'One of our product executives was given the phone to test the system. He had it with him at an organised evening event and it was stolen from him - we don't know by whom.'"

Microsoft declined to comment on the report.

Barcelona's professional pickpockets often travel...
