ngmoco dropship for iPhone – review (now it is free!)

dropship is a game for iPhone and iPod touch, that is made by ngmoco – a company specialized in making iPhone games – and now this game is free! So, you might be thinking that a company that has received15 million dollars from vulture capitalists (as opposed to indie developers, who have only a little bit of free time and cheap Mac mini off eBay) would be able to do some good games, right? Right? No. This game sucks. Probably ngmoco released it now for free, just to attract gamers to their other, better, newer, games…

Here is how this game looks like:

Palm is watching you.


Palm has responded to claims that its new flagship phone the Palm Pre abuses owner’s privacy rights.

The company’s statement issued after an owner discovered that location, list of third party applications, application usage as well as crashes were being sent back to Palm.

In the response issued by Palm it stated that it took the users privacy "seriously" and gave users ways to turn said features on and off.

Joey Hess software developer and Pre owner found his handset was sending this information back to Palm over a secure connection.

In its privacy policy, Palm does state that it uses geographical data to help with location-based services. It also added: "Our privacy policy is like many policies in the industry and includes very detailed language about potential scenarios in which we might use a customer’s information, all toward a goal of offering a great user experience." This has left both owners and developers wondering why so much data is needed and why they weren’t told what it had gathered.

Toshiba TG01 review at PhoneArena


PhoneArena have reviewed the new Tosihba TG01, a phone we had remarked upon in a podcast some weeks ago for looking a little laggy when it came to the Today Screen overlay. Thankfully that seems to have just been an early Rom. This looks, a couple of downfalls but one of the best Toshiba phones in a while

Toshiba has been MIA for some time now, but seems quite intent on making it back to the cell phone market by trying to shake the reigning concept of what high-end cell phone hardware means. Does the brute force of the Toshiba TG01, and its 1GHz Snapdragon chipset get along with Windows Mobile, probably the best business oriented operating system as of now? Is the result a marvel of modern technology? Can the gigantic 4.1-inch screen win over customers and pip competition at the post? Read on to find out.
