This week has proven to be another slow week, as the summer comes to an end. Rumors are still surfacing on specs for the Storm 2 and we continue to eat them up. Word out on the wire is that iPhone users will finally see the MMS feature added this month, on September 25th. Hopefully there is no delay now that it has been announced. I personally would like to see AT&T increase certain aspects of their network so that it supports all smartphones, not just the iPhone. Coverage for me in Nor Cal hasn't been that great since the launch of the newest iPhone.

Major League Baseball for a Dollar a Game
If you’re out of town and on the move and still want to watch your favorite baseball team, Major League Baseball is about to make you a very interesting offer: The ability to watch a game streamed live to your iPhone, for 99 cents a pop. Bob Bowman, CEO of Major League Baseball Advanced Media–pro baseball’s standalone digital media company–tells me iPhone and iPod touch users will soon be able to buy individual games. The feature will be added to the company’s existing MLB.com app and will roll out as soon as Apple (AAPL) finishes approving the update, which Bowman expects to happen within the next few days.
As far as I know, that will make baseball the first pro sports league to sell mobile access to live games on an on-demand, a la carte basis.
Vonage Goes Where GV Can't the App Store
Talk about strange - while Google Voice can’t get so much as their foot in the App Store’s door, Vonage has just done a pirouette and waltzed right through. According to a recent release
from the Jersey-based VOIP giant, their new Vonage mobile application has been approved for inclusion into Apple’s App Store as soon as it comes out of beta. Details at this point are still lacking: we have no idea when it will actually release, nor do we know how much it’ll cost for all you Vonage-faithful out there. The press release doesn’t even go into what kind of services the app will provide, but we can certainly hazard a few guesses. Given Vonage’s position in the VOIP industry, it seems likely that we may soon have a Google Voice-esque app that allows users to make and receive calls that tie into an existing Vonage phone number, but right now your guess is as good as ours. For all we know, we could be looking at something as lackluster as an extension of Vonage’s existing Visual Voicemail service, but hopefully the app won’t stop short of what it should be.

Then it is up to the player to input back those colors in the correct order. You match them correctly, and you'll advance to the next round with increased difficulty. You get it wrong and it's game over for you.
