The Daily Slash: October 20th 2010

The Daily Slash: October 20th 2010

Welcome to one giant jungle cat of a Daily Slash, so wild and crazy I keep calling it the daily Slasher in my head. Two giant bits of news hit at once: the Back to the Mac event and the release of Windows Phone 7 handsets (hint: we've got three of em to look at!) Plus a whole torrent of other wonderful and fabulous bits of news that'd otherwise be big but was sort of CRUSHED by those two big guns. Shall we? Let's begin!

Where are the Google Nexus One accessories?

As our Nexus One unboxing video demonstrated, when it comes to in-box entertainment Google are definitely expecting the smartphone itself to do the talking; included accessories are limited to an Android-branded slip case, an AC adapter and a USB cable.  In the run up to the Nexus One's debut, however, we saw leaks of various add-ons including a Bluetooth car dock and a Bluetooth desk dock; Google, though, made no mention of any Nexus One accessories, third-party or otherwise, at their launch event on Tuesday.

Google “doing exactly what Microsoft did” says angry GPS app dev

Google “doing exactly what Microsoft did” says angry GPS app dev

With Google Maps Navigation causing ripples not only among Android users but in the share prices of Garmin, TomTom and other mapping providers, it seems some location-based services providers are coming out fighting.  LaptopMag have been talking to Networks in Motion's (NIM) Steve Andler, VP of marketing at the company responsible for Verizon's VZ Navigator and the Gokivo iPhone app, and he's pulling no punches about his opinion of Google.  Andler describes the idea of Android as being open as "a bunch of hooey", and even goes so far as to suggest that "Google is doing exactly what Microsoft did, which is, they integrate stuff into the core, leaving no room for anyone to innovate."

Of course, it's not surprising that Andler - and NIM - are frustrated, given the particular corner of software development they chose to carve out.  Andler's core argument about PND software is that it requires more than a few voice prompts on top of a map.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 43 2009

Weeks are flying by and it's time for another week in review.

We also found out that Microsoft is set to issue a new update for the Xbox 360 that will break unauthorized storage devices. That means that some gamers will be unable to access the saved game data after applying the new update.

Apple iPod touch 3G Review

Apple iPod touch 3G Review

Apple surprised many people at their recent iPod launch event by focusing on the iPod nano rather than their flagship touchscreen PMP, the iPod touch.  Still, they saved a little magic for the third-generation model, including a lower starting price and some games-focused speed boosts higher up in the range.  Does the iPod touch 3G stay ahead of the pack, or did Apple miss a trick by not tweaking further?  Check out our review after the cut.
