Activision Launches Call Of Duty Elite App – Finally – Updated

Activision Blizzard took to its Facebook account today to announce its release of the much awaited Call of Duty Elite app. Unfortunately they have only cause more anger than relief, as they are only release the App for iOS on Tuesday 1/10/12. They have not mentioned the release of the app for any other devices or operating systems at this point in time.

Activision Blizzard has been getting a lot of heat for the handling of Call of Duty Elite since it’s launch and one of the selling points was the mobile app, which 3 months after launch still isn’t available. We’ll be reaching out to Activision to see if they can provide an update on additional devices / OS support but for now, folks with iPhones rejoice, everyone else, we’re used to being second class citizens.

— Update 2:00

Venture Beat that the Android version will launch a week later –

Adobe Killing Flash for Mobile Devices? Does That Mean Apple Wins?

Adobe Killing Flash for Mobile Devices? Does That Mean Apple Wins?

After last nights reports that Microsoft was killing off Silverlight after version 5, I have to say that this mornings news from Adobe was not expected. Reports are coming out that Adobe will no longer be developing or supporting Flash for Mobile devices, the focus moving forward will be on enabling developers to package their apps with Adobe AIR for submission through App stores. This is a huge blow for Flash developers and a piece of a larger shift in the web environment towards HTML 5 and away from plug-in driven functionality.

Here is the direct quote from a memo leaked to ZDINet:

“Our future work with Flash on mobile devices will be focused on enabling Flash developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR for all the major app stores. We will no longer adapt Flash Player for mobile devices to new browser, OS version or device configurations. Some of our source code licensees may opt to continue working on and releasing their own implementations. We will continue to support the current Android and PlayBook configurations with critical bug fixes and security updates.”

Big things are changing in the world of development, and Apple may have been right all along to not support Flash on their iOS environment.

What are your thoughts?

HP: Producing another round of TouchPads to meet demand!

HP: Producing another round of TouchPads to meet demand!

HP: Producing another round of TouchPads to meet demand!

 

In welcome news for all of us who didn’t get a chance to get our hands on one of the remaining $99 HP TouchPads, according to HP’s blog, they’re producing one more round of TouchPads to meet demand! Shocking news in what continues to be a whirlwind of HP related stories, first the discontinuation of the webOS line of products and services, then the decision to sell off their PC business, and now the decision to push out an additional run of TouchPads.

Of course a $99 price tag for a fully capable tablet was a great deal so you can see why they sold out so quickly around the country. Every location we called was sold out within a day and said that everyone else was sold out as well. With a rush like that it makes sense for HP to liquidate any remaining TouchPads they have parts for, they might as well get as much out of them as they can and if that $99 price point is helping them at least cover the loss then I don’t see why they wouldn’t do it.

Notes from HP Blog:

Q: When is HP getting more HP TouchPads? One week, two weeks, a month?
A limited supply are coming and it will be a few weeks before they are available. As we know more about how, when, and where TouchPads will be available, we will communicate that here and through email to those who requested notification. We can tell you that HP’s Small and Medium Business team has sold out of HP TouchPads and will not have more inventory.

Q: Can you comment on whether HP had to manufacture more to meet the recent demand?
HP will be manufacturing a limited quantity of TouchPads with webOS during our fourth fiscal quarter 2011, which ends October 31.

Q: Will HP continue to make more TouchPads with webOS to meet the demand?
HP is discontinuing the development of webOS devices and is winding down device operations within our fourth fiscal quarter 2011.
