iReplay Apples Own Netflix Rival

Apple has launch many things to complete its own ecosystem where Google lead the way now having a very huge domain for all its service, recently with Google + as its main center and also as its social network application to improve its service.

Apple not falling behind is going to release another competitive service that rival Netflix and Hulu, calling it iReplay is a service that provide movie available for rent in iTunes but not like Netflix with one subscription price but one movie per price. Yes it's a huge difference but things could get better once it's launch and changes happen here and there.

And according to AppAdvice:
In a nutshell, iTunes Replay is an extension to what Apple is already doing with iCloud and free re-downloads of previously purchased content. As Apple secures the remaining rights, TV Shows as well as Movies in iTunes will be given little arrow indicating whether they’re “iTunes Replay eligible”, that is, available to be downloaded subsequent times. Note that some content will unfortunately only be available to download five times and we don’t know how streaming will count towards that limit.

Kyocera Echo Update Just Confrim, NFC?

Last week the Kyocera Echo gets Gingerbread and today Sprint and Kyocera confirm the update and also made some announcement, a WiFi call and NFC reader support.

The WiFi calling is really nice but the NFC support not so much. The porblem is that the Echo hardware doesn't really support NFC, it does have the chip but not the antenna in order for the NFC to properly working. Could the Echo have an improve hardware or just an accessory for the NFC or a new brother with proper NFC?

Amazon Stop receiving Application From Germany

Amazon stop accepting app from German developers due to the case ongoing between Amazon and Apple in the lawsuit of the term appstore that Apple claim to be theirs only and not anyone else. Below is what German developers get from Amazon

Subject: Important Notice for Germany Based Developers

Dear Amazon Appstore Developer,

Thank you for your participation in the Amazon Appstore for Android. We wanted to notify you of a recent change to your Developer Portal account; for the time being, we are not accepting new app submissions from developers located in Germany. We have been forced to impose this restriction due to a legal action filed by Apple in Germany seeking to prevent us from using the term “appstore.” We believe Apple’s claim is without merit and are actively contesting it.

When you log into your Developer Portal account, you will notice that the options to add new apps have been removed. We hope to begin accepting new apps from German developers again soon and will notify you as soon as we are able to do so.

We appreciate your patience and your continued interest in the Amazon Appstore for Android.

Thank you,

Amazon Appstore Account Team
 


If this happen to all European country, then most online store is force to change the appstore to something else.
