Opera Mac App Store 17+ rating too low jibes browser VP

Opera has become the first non-native web browser to arrive in the Mac App Store, and as per Apple's normal policies has been slapped with a 17+ age rating. That's not upsetting VP of desktop products Jan Standal, however, who sees the classification - deemed necessary by Apple since all the filthy internet is viewable through a browser - as the perfect opportunity for a joke. "I'm very concerned," Standal says, "seventeen is very young, and I am not sure if, at that age, people are ready to use such an application."

Apple TV to Support Gaming?

Apple TV to Support Gaming?

Strings inside Apple's iOS 4.3 beta firmware that'll be used on Apple TV have been shown to display clues leading to one possibility: the ability to play games on Apple TV without having to jailbreak first. An anonymous tipster speaking with Engadget has revealed the following references: "ATVGames" and "ATVThunder," both of them inside iOS 4.3 beta 3, as well as "com.apple.appletv.play.live.thunder" and ".play.archive.thunder." What's all that junk mean? It might be nothing of too much interest, but what these tipsters may have found are clues to a controller, a set of game leaderboards, a way to schedule games, and a storefront.

Apple iPad vs HP TouchPad tablet Matchup

Apple iPad vs HP TouchPad tablet Matchup

Today we were treated to a presentation by HP that might completely turn webOS around, out of the dark spaces of everyone's doubt centers and into a very plausible option place for many soon-to-be seekers of tablets in this new market. The tablet in question is the HP TouchPad, running webOS 3.0 and looking like not a half bad idea for a workstation on the go. We decided to match it up against a couple contenders, first the Motorola XOOM Android tablet, now the Apple iPad. How does the TouchPad measure up? You be the judge.

iPad Radiology App for Mobile Diagnosis Approved by FDA

iPad Radiology App for Mobile Diagnosis Approved by FDA

Incase you are from outer space and do not know, FDA stands for US Food and Drug Administration, and they've just approved an app that'll work on both iPad and iPhone (and we assume iPod Touch too, since that's generally what happens,) that last surfaced when it won the Apple Design Award for "Best iPhone Healthcare & Fitness Application" in 2008. This app, the FDA notes, "is not intended to replace full workstations and is indicated for use only when there is no access to a workstation."

Apple App Store Hits 10 Billion Downloads

Apple App Store Hits 10 Billion Downloads

As of today, 10 billion apps, thats ten BILLION individual apps have been downloaded from the Apple App Store. The person who fired off the ten billionth download will be receiving a $10,000 USD iTunes Gift Card that can be redeemed for anything in the iTunes store or the App Store including apps, music, audiobooks, television shows, and movies. Supposing the 10 billionth person was a person buying up every app in the world in order to be the magic number last, can you imagine them even having anything left to buy, much less $10,000 worth of digital downloads?

iPhone and iPad RPG Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden Announced by Gameloft

iPhone and iPad RPG Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden Announced by Gameloft

Behold one epic looking game. This sort of game is what makes it worth having an iPad, if you ask me. This game is what IntoMobile is calling a Legend of Zelda clone, and I'm inclined to agree. I'm NOT inclined to protest though, as such a game as that might not be out for ages and ages. Now is the age of Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden. A young fellow by the name of Ayden is chosen by the god Uryah to save the kingdom of Lasgalen from no less than the Apocalypse. How will you do such a monumental task? You'll ride your horse and break some ice with a big glove, of course!
