    PinStack Week in Review: News/Applications Updates and the NEW PSCast!

    Advertisement





    I don't know about ya'll, but amongst everything going on in the world today, I feel extremely hopeful and optimistic and more than excited about the changes ahead. I feel like I literally sat in front of the TV on Tuesday from 9am to 11pm (inauguration, parade, news, balls ). Then I went on the net to read even more. I hope each of you are as excited as me! I think we are in for the ride of our lives. Good Times

    Spin3's Casino Games Come to BlackBerry Smartphones
    Serving a market that’s seen positive quarterly returns despite the weak economy, a London-based mobile gaming provider today announced that it’s launched a series of casino games specifically for use on Research In Motion Limited’s smartphones, including the touch screen BlackBerry Storm. Officials at Spin3 say their mobile casino games, such as the one shown below right, provided through the company’s so-called “GameWire” platform, are perfect for devices that have become the phone of choice for business users. According to Matti Zinder, head of Spin3, says, the company is giving a user that relies on their BlackBerry device 24 hours a day the opportunity to play casino games on the move, and in a way that fits around their busy lifestyles.


    iPhone apps round-up: A head start on Valentine’s Day
    The books are barely closed on one holiday, it seems, before stores have already set up decorations and displays for the next holiday on the calendar. The App Store appears to be following the lead of its brick-and-mortar brethren, with Valentine’s Day apps finding a prominent place within the store. Leading the charge is Valentine Radio from BluMedialab.com. The free download for any iPhone or iPod touch running the iPhone 2.2 software update boasts a selection of romantic streaming Internet radio stations from around the world. The app features a selection of stations across multiple music genres that you can listen to via Wi-Fi and 3G networks.

    New Collaboration App for iPhone Now Available
    Named one of the top applications for the iPhone when it was demonstrated at Macworld two weeks ago, FUZE Lite is now available for free download from the Apple App Store. Similar iPhone applications such as WebEx already exist on the market; however with FUZE Lite users can collaborate on high-definition videos and images using their iPhone, helping to raise the bar for collaboration standards.
    FUZE Lite provides iPhone users with a conference call bridge number for life, as well as the ability to manage conference calls directly from their phones, which provides visual indication of conference call attendees and the ability to mute callers. Integrated IM and presence enables users to connect with public IM networks such as AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, Google Talk, Cisco’s Jabber and Reuters in a secure, SSL-encrypted environment.

    Already on BlackBerry and iPhone Truphone Anywhere Launches on Android G1
    Truphone announced the immediate free availability of its Truphone Anywhere application for Android-enabled mobile handsets, including the recently released G1 phone. The application is available now as a download on the Android Marketplace in the UK and the US. To coincide with T-Mobile’s announcement earlier this week of the availability of the G1 mobile phone in March 2009, a German version of Truphone Anywhere for Android is available and will be the first native language multi-communications application in the Android Market in Germany and Austria when it launches at CeBIT 2009.

    New App: TalkLater - Call reminder utility
    TalkLater is a tool that allows you to set callback reminders for anyone within your address book or call log on your phone. TalkLater will remind you who to call at the specific time you set. With TalkLater you are alerted with a pop-up, phone vibration, and any ringtone (DRM-Free) that you select. TalkLater can remind you to make a call in as little as a minute later or three years from now. TalkLater can help you remember to make important phone calls (birthday calls, calls to clients, and callbacks to friends).

    Here's to 09

    I know what you mean. I haven't watched that much TV in one day since 9/11. I'm excited as well. I'm nervous but I'm excited. Change is good and it seems like Obama's not slowing down. The rest of us better kick it in high gear. I'm ready!

    Thank you for another great WIR cherri. I will be looking forward to next weeks even more than usually because events of the week will keep me away from home (pinstack) more than normal. I'm counting on you to keep me updated like you always do.

    I watched the whole inauguration as well. There's just this aura that Obama gives off that makes me feel that hes going to do everything he can to help us. Its nice.

    I know exactly what you mean, because with "mr nan-tucket" it all felt like bs and for some reason with Obama it's completely different. (in a good way)

    I consider the election of Obama to be one of the darkest day in recent history. Don't fool yourself into thinking that Dr. King's dream has come true. Dr. King said he dreams of the day when a man will be "judged by the content of his character instead of the color of his skin". Well my friends character was a huge issue in the election if you recall and none of the issues were resolved. There is no doubt about the fact if Obama wasn't black he would not have been elected. So again I say, Dr. King's dream has not been realized.

    Dude you SO drank the coolade.
    I can't believe you believe the drivel coming out of Obama's mouth.
    btw I'm so glad you liked his speech, you'll have to thank the speech writer!

    Never in the history of the U.S. have we had a president with such a lack of experience, lack of a plan, lack of character. He is nothing but a smooth talker (with a tele-prompter) and you swallowed it hook line and sinker.
    He can't even get his fellow democrats in congress to agree with his so called "stimulus plan". LOL

    Just because someone promises you ice cream, doesn't mean you'll get it.
