Google Announces Developer Conference on Modular Phones

Posted in Google by Darrin Olson on February 27th, 2014

Project Ara Modular Phones Google announced on Wednesday that it will host a series of three developer conferences, focusing on the alpha release of the Project Ara Module Developers Kit (MDK). Project Ara is an initiative to move the idea of modular smartphones into a reality.

Instead of purchasing a whole, new pre-configured smartphone every time your device (or part of your device) is outdated you would have the option of purchasing just a single component of the device, and mix and matching it as you would like.

The first of the series of conferences will be based on a slower prototype implementation of the Ara on-device network, and will be held on April 15-16 in Mountain View, CA. There is a $100 ($25 for students) attendance fee with developers having a priority at the show, or you can watch a live stream …

PSN back online for developers

Posted in PS3 by Reuben Drake on May 13th, 2011

Looks like PSN has begun to come back online, but access is currently restricted to developers, and it’s still very sporadic. It has been confirmed with several developers that access is now available.

We hope that this means it will be only days until the rest of us are online, but the only date we have heard is the end of this month when Sony says things should be working again. Now it looks like it could be as soon as next week if this information is correct.

WP7 developers complain of missing payments, broken reporting tools

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on November 29th, 2010

While most of us really like the new Windows Phone 7 UI and even its software developer kit, some developers aren’t liking the way Marketplace is working for them so far. According to Nicholas Yu and Justin James, it’s currently impossible for them to know how many apps they have sold (and how much Microsoft owes them). They don’t even know when payments will be coming their way. Apparently Justin James was told by Microsoft that no developer payout would happen until 2011.

We aren’t sure what the deal is yet as Windows Phone 6.x developers did not seem to have these problems. We hope that Microsoft will solve this quickly.

Sony says developers are already working on PlayStation 4 games

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on August 17th, 2010

We don’t have many details, but according to a recent edition of Game Informer Australia, Sony has stated that developers are already getting games ready for the as yet unannounced PlayStation 4. Sony’s PlayStation 3 has been with us for several years now, so it’s entirely possible.

Speculation is that the next-generation console will arrive by 2012. It makes sense as developers need time to develop games way ahead of launch and they need to get familiar with the hardware. I guess we will see.

Here’s some good news for Android owners. Netflix is on the lookout for an Android developer to help them build a streaming client for Android devices. You dont have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that an official Netflix app should be on its way.

A Netflix app that will allow subscribers to watch their movies directly on their mobile Android device. There’s no official time frame yet, so who knows when it will happen, but they are working on it.

Microsoft unveils blue-tinted Xbox 360, for developers onlyWell hello hotness. What’s not to love about the new Xbox 360 dev kit unveiled at this week’s Game Developers Conference and due out in the summer? It’s ultra-sexy with its sleek black-and-blue tint finish and stylish etchings. It also features 1GB of RAM, twice what is found in the retail model.

Sadly, no matter how much drool pools up on your desktop, this hardware is only for those who make the games. But maybe they will take pity on us and offer one up to the masses soon.

Nintendo planning its own Dsi App Store?

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on March 20th, 2009

Nintendo planning its own Dsi App Store?Nintendo may be planning an app download service of its own, and has been encouraging developers to come up with app-like content for the DSi. We can’t really say it’s a surprise since everyone else seems to be either already doing it or planning on doing it.

The Japanese version of the DSi already connects to the DS Shop and DSi Ware, Nintendo’s gaming store. But according to a developer, the company is hoping to get some non-gaming stuff on the device. You know, the kind of stuff that that fits and enriches your lifestyle.
