• The Google Phone is dead

    Google stopped selling its Nexus One smartphone today, ending an era and leaving its Froyo OS in limbo.

    Google last week warned that it was getting its last shipment of Nexus One phones in and true to its word, the store has now stopped selling the Nexus One smartphone today.

    The stoppage presents a particularly interesting problem for Google.  They no longer sell a device that runs Android 2.2 (Froyo).  All of the carrier MORE

  • Liveblog: Verizon unveils the Droid X

    After weeks of speculation, teasers and leaks, the day many Android aficionados have been antsy about has arrived: the unveiling of Verizon's Droid X and Droid 2.

    Thanks to a recent "pre-review," we have a pretty good idea of what to expect in terms of features, at least as far the Motorola (MOT) Droid x, including a new 45 nm 1GHz TI OMAP processor that's almost double the raw speed of MORE

  • Adobe updates Flash and Photoshop for Android

    Two big updates from Adobe are now ready for Android devices.

    Last night, Adobe Blogger John Nack posted that Flash 10.1 Beta 3 is now available in the Android Market or from here if you are running Android 2.2 Froyo (which is likely only Nexus One users, a few other hackers out there, and maybe some Droid 2/x beta testers?).

    Additionally, a new release of the Photoshop.com Mobile app just hit MORE

  • Probing the Apple antitrust probes

    Apple is likely to duck these bullets, say two analysts, but every case increases its risk

    Absent a "smoking gun," neither the Federal Trade Commission nor the Department of Justice is likely to take Apple (AAPL) to court for antitrust violations, according to a note to clients issued Friday by Stifel Nicolas's Rebecca Arbogast and George Askew.

    Apple has credible justifications, they write, for both complaints that have been lodged against it: MORE

  • Adobe tries to upstage Steve Jobs

    Using an independent advertising platform to get Flash in the iPhone and iPad's back door

    Here's an odd twist.

    In a press statement scheduled for release two hours before Steve Jobs' WWDC keynote, Adobe (ADBE) has announced that it is teaming up with an independent mobile advertising network to bring advertisements written in Flash to a variety of mobile devices, including Apple's (AAPL) iPhone and iPad and Google's (GOOG) Android phones.

    According to MORE

  • Tech's 10 greatest blind spots

    From Apple to Yahoo, Silicon Alley Insider spots the Achilles' heels

    Here's an interesting exercise. Rather than look at what America's leading tech companies do best, why not focus on what they do worst? That's what SAI's Jay Yarow has done in a gallery posted Wednesday. The headlines:

    Google (GOOG) doesn't get social
    Apple (AAPL) doesn't get the cloud
    Twitter's weakness is good product
    Facebook underestimates the importance of privacy
    Microsoft (MSFT) doesn't get the Web

  • Steve Jobs live (sort of) at D8

    Notes from from an Apple watcher stuck on the wrong coast

    Apple's (AAPL) CEO was scheduled to give the 6 p.m. PDT keynote at All Things Digital Tuesday night, but the show is running late and rumor has it that he's been pre-empted, at least temporarily, by Rupert Murdoch. Makes sense. Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher may think this is their show, but Murdoch -- as CEO of the News Corp. MORE

  • Steve Jobs: "Freedom from porn"

    "Traditional PC folks feel their world is slipping away," says Apple's CEO. "It is."

    Kudos to Valleywag's Ryan Tate for posting in full his bizarre late-night alcohol-induced e-mail debate with Steve Jobs, given -- as he is the first to admit -- how bad some of the things he wrote make him look. (He drops names he shouldn't, he can't seem to spell Cocoa correctly, and he'll have hell to MORE

  • Why Adobe shouldn't give a $&*# about Apple

    Despite Apple's public denouncement of Flash, its creator is about to have a banner year

    By JP Mangalindan, reporter

    Steve Jobs may have written his paean to the public, explaining why he feels it's time to leave Adobe's Flash to the dustbin of history, but the relegation seems premature. In fact, the record shows that consumers have been overlooking the lack of Flash support on Apple's mobile device for years. MORE

  • 26% of Web video is now iPad-ready

    Up from 10% four months ago, according to a new survey

    How's Steve Jobs' campaign against Adobe (ADBE) Flash progressing? The bar chart at right offers one measure.

    It comes from Mefeedia, a media search website that indexes video from a wide variety of sources -- from CBS and ABC to YouTube and Hulu, some 30,000 sources in all.

    From time to time Mefeedia analyzes its index to look for trends. One of MORE
