Report: EA planning premium, pre-launch DLC for retail games at $10 - $15 [Update: EA explains] (Joystiq)

Mar 22nd 2010 3:49PM "We want people to buy a not-quite-finished product at $10-15, then give us feedback which we will put in the full game, charging a further $30+ for the finished product."

"Basically, we're getting people to pay to be beta testers lololol."

Dear EU: Please quit whining about browsers already (Download Squad)

May 31st 2009 10:57AM Linux distros and Apple already show you alternative browsers, in Linux it's via the package manager and Apple link to them on their downloads page. Also, non-WebKit browsers are allowed into the App Store IIRC.

However, regardless of all that, the EU are still nutjobs with this idea. Didn't this start off as Microsoft getting told off for integrating IE too deeply into the system so that it couldn't be removed? I was in support of that, and Microsoft fixed it for Windows 7. Case closed. What's this new idea for?

Rumor: Audiosurf soon surfing onto iPhone (Joystiq)

Mar 22nd 2009 5:44AM They both run the same OS, so when you build your app, it is able to run on all iPhones/iPod touches. The only time an app would be iPhone-only is if it used the camera, or something only the phone has.

Mar 11th 2009 4:08AM a) I should've known you guys would go straight to pinging and whatnot, I'm on a home network, which means my iPod has the ext. IP as my Debian webserver.

b) In a way, this proves how much safer iPhone users are, because even if there was some exploit through IP addresses, it'd be pointless as the iPhone would be protected at home by the router, and constantly be given a random IP when on 3G/EDGE.

BTW, did you notice there's nothing you can do with my UDID? I like how you ignored it.

Money is in the mouth.

Mar 9th 2009 2:18PM Sure is paranoid around here.

UDID only identifies your device, not you, and is therefore useless at tracking down the actual person.

Example: I'm part of the ShoveBox for iPhone beta program thing. If you rip apart the provision file that you need to give to iTunes, it has a list of other UDIDs for all the iPhones & iPods allowed to load the program. After I have these IDs, however, there's nothing I can do with them.

I don't think Apple have personal details linked to UDIDs, seeing as iPhones get passed on and sold.
