Friday Night Movie Night: WiTricity: Wireless Charging

PowerThis video isn’t specific to the iPhone but I thought I’d share it just to show the possibilities of the future. It’s originally from BBC. It talks about wireless charging devices, and I’m not talking close contact like the Palm Pre, this is actually wireless.

Friday Night Movie Night: Pizza Hut App

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

YouTubeOk, so it’s actually not Friday night, it’s Saturday morning. Maybe we could call this Saturday morning cartoons! Well, we’re on vacation right now and didn’t get to Friday Night Movie Night last night. Now that we have a nice 3G connection we can post some videos. This was one of the top viewed iPhone videos on YouTube in the last week. It’s an app for ordering pizza from Pizza Hut. Looks pretty nice!

Friday Night Movie Night: Call of Juarez – Shotgun application

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

Shotgun FreeThis video is so well done I just had to post it. The app is pretty simple, it make your iPhone sound like a shotgun. I’m guessing they spent more on the commercial than the app…

Friday Night Movie Night: AT&T Navigator

Available In: App Store       Price: $9.99 per month  

YouTubeSince I’m not going to spend the $9.99 a month to have this feature, here’s a video I found on YouTube. I’m holding out for TomTom’s app and hoping that there’s no monthly subscription.

Friday Night Movie Night: Bye Bye Aquatica

YouTubeI remember this game! Except it was called flOw. Apparently, a company called Ketara, rewrote the game from the ground up, called it Aquatica and put it in the App Store, without the permission of the original developer. They have since removed the app from the App Store and left this apology on their website:

Aquatica was an iPhone remake/fan version of the famous flOw game originally created by Jenova Chen of the ThatGameCompany fame. We deeply apologize for not properly crediting Jenova initially, and have already written him with a personal apology, as well. We also apologize to anyone we have upset and offended – please be assurred that we had no slightest intention of doing so. Our mistakes were caused by naivety, not malice, and we never meant to be disrepectful to anyone.

Because the game seemed to be upsetting so many, we have decided to remove it completely. We will also make sure nothing like this ever happens in the future – we understand our mistake, and will be working very hard to correct it and make amends.
