Why you havent seen nothing yet when it comes to iOS games

Graeme Devine:

When I first got an iPad, I was sold on it being the ultimate piece of science fiction technology for gaming. I think it is the most interesting new technology product I’-ve worked on in years and I really wanted to make games for it.

I don’-t think a lot of people are really thinking yet what games mean on these touch platforms, the joystick is gone, there is no proxy in between you and the screen anymore. When I first saw the photos being rotated and pinch / zoomed on the iPhone, I knew things had changed forever, and people are trying to insert something back in there when clearly the best applications are the ones where the screen is a window onto a world that you can touch. I am not a fan of virtual d-pads, pointers, or other crutches, we have an opportunity on these devices to let players hold, move, touch, and feel the game in front of them and I intend to focus on that.

People who invest in stocks should pile in on AAPL.

Prediction markets are already on the iPad via Safari (Apples web browser). Native apps to come? – [VIDEO]

I have just installed the PuSHPress plugin, and this post is a test to see whether it works. If yes, this post should be indexed quickly by Google Reader (and other feed readers).

Filed in “-Real-Time Web“-.

UPDATE: I am so impressed, I could lay an egg. A brand-new post appears in Google Reader within seconds. I can’-t believe it.

UPDATE 2: Any small editing is immediately fetched by Google Reader (provided it is done on the last 10 posts). Amazing.

The Apple Tablet looks like a bigger iPhone that sports an awesome UI packed in a beautiful 10.1-inch screen.
