  1. Skyfire CEO Says AT&T Is Starting to Understand that Customers Demand Quality

    Some guy once said that in the future (meaning now) everyone will get fifteen minutes of fame. I'm still waiting on mine – for some reason, Maury isn't returning any of my phone calls. But Skyfire, a company best known for kinda-sorta bringing Flash video to iOS devices, got its time in the spotlight for being the best way to display Flash videos on iOS devices.

  2. Brainworth Takes to Kickstarter to Fund Video Game-Based Higher Education

    Many software developers and engineers get an early introduction to computers through gaming. One Australian startup, Brainworth, is taking this idea to its natural conclusion by developing a video game environment to deliver online education. The company, whose mantra is "make education playable," is starting with teaching video game development and university-level computer science skills, but the long term subject matter options are endless.

  3. Yeah, It Does Matter That Tim Cook Just Apologized For Apple's Maps

    I know what you're going to say. The "Would this have happened under Steve Jobs?" meme has jumped the shark. It is irrelevant, because Steve Jobs was Steve Jobs and Tim Cook is Tim Cook. Every CEO is different. Jobs even told his protege not to try to run Apple like he did, and instead to run it like Cook would. And yes, we have already seen that Cook is a very different CEO, and it hasn't harmed Apple's bottom line a bit. Quite the contrary.

  7. We Have No Evidence Amazon Is Launching a Square Competitor, But I Hope So

    There are more rumors swirling the blogs today that Amazon is launching a real-world payment app to compete with Square. Truth be told, the reports are pretty thin on new details and sourcing -- it's not even credited to someone close to the company. In March 2011, Bloomberg cited similar rumors sourced to those with "knowledge of the product," and little has confirmed those reports either.
