Windows 8 reaches 100,000 apps milestone in just over seven months

Windowsstorebestbuy_large

While Microsoft didn’t quite hit 100,000 in time for its Build developers conference last week, the software giant is announcing its latest milestone for Windows 8 today. The Windows Store has just passed the 100,000 mark, roughly seven months after Windows 8 went on sale in October. CEO Steve Ballmer had anticipated a total of 100,000 apps in time for July at Build, and that figure has been achieved just in time.

The 100,000 mark is rapid in comparison to Microsoft’s own Windows Phone Store, which took over 18 months to reach the same 100,000 figure. In comparison, the App Store reached the 100,000 iPad-specific app milestone in around 14 months, and Android hit 100,000 after around 18 months. Numbers aren’t everything and it’s hard to…

New PRISM slides: more than 100,000 ‘active surveillance targets,’ explicit mention of real-time monitoring

Prism-slide-7_large

The Washington Post has revealed four new slides from its trove of top secret PRISM information, appearing to confirm earlier reporting about the US government surveillance program.

Notably, the new slides appear to confirm whistleblower Edward Snowden’s claims that PRISM allows the NSA and FBI to perform real-time surveillance of email and instant messaging, though it’s still not clear which specific internet service providers allow such surveillance. (As originally reported, PRISM providers include Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, YouTube, Skype, AOL, and Apple.) In notes accompanying the new slides, the Post claims that “depending on the provider, the NSA may receive live notifications when a target logs on or sends an…

Microsoft reportedly paying developers $100,000 or more to build apps

Templerunwp81_640_large

Microsoft has slowly been catching up on filling the Windows Phone store with big-name apps, and according to Bloomberg Businessweek, that may be thanks to some financial encouragement. Microsoft is reportedly paying some companies $ 100,000 or more to build apps for its mobile OS. Though no specific apps are named, Microsoft has landed a number of favorites in just the last few months, including Pandora, Temple Run, and Jetpack Joyride. Of course, Temple Run‘s arrival came five months after Temple Run 2 hit iOS.

Presumably, Microsoft’s payment offer would be focused toward specific, high-profile developers only. The company is still running a separate program that offers each and every developer $ 100 per app submitted to the Windows…

3D-printed firearm plans downloaded 100,000 times, State Department steps in

3Dprinted firearm plans downloaded 100,000 times, State Department steps in

That didn’t take long — just days after its first test fire, the Liberator, a 3D-printed pistol designed by Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson, has caught the attention of the federal government. It’s hardly a surprise: the arm’s blueprints were downloaded more than 100,000 times since going live on DefCAD this week. It’s not the amount of downloads that’s causing trouble, though, it’s who is downloading them. In a letter from the US State Department, Wilson was told that it’s a violation of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations to “export any defense article or technical data for which a license or written approval is required without first obtaining the required authorization from the DDTC (Directorate of Defense Trade Controls).”

The letter goes on to explain that these downloads legally count as exports under the law, telling Wilson to remove the plans from public access immediately. “That might be an impossible standard,” Wilson told Forbes. “But we’ll do our part to remove it from our servers.” As it turns out, most of the gun’s downloads were served via Mega, making full removal near impossible. Still, Wilson seems optimistic about the situation, explaining to Forbes that conversation will help mold the discussion on 3D printed weaponry. “Is this a workable regulatory regime? Can there be defense trade control in the era of the internet and 3D printing?” We’re looking forward to discovering the answer ourselves.

Netflix Cloud Prize offers over $100,000 in rewards to cloud computing gurus

Netflix Cloud Prize offers over $  100,000 in rewards to cloud computing gurus

Netflix has a vested interest in fostering cloud computing — after all, that’s increasingly the company’s core business. Accordingly, it’s not going to just sit around and wait for a breakthrough. The subscription service is kicking off its Netflix Cloud Prize competition in the hopes that developers can move technology a little faster. Programmers who build upon Netflix’s open-source code before September 15th can win from a pool of $ 100,000 spread equally among 10 categories, ranging from performance improvements to what has to be our automatic favorite: “best new monkey.” Each winner also gets $ 5,000 in Amazon Web Services credit, flights to Las Vegas and a spot at Amazon’s user conference this November. The challenge won’t completely make up for the end to Netflix’s public API, but it does show that at least some tinkerers are welcome in the streaming video giant’s world.

Wii U sales collapse with ‘well under’ 100,000 sold in January

Nintendo Wii U hero (1024px)

Nintendo has already cut its projections for the Wii U after sales failed to fulfill assumptions, and we’re now seeing the degree of the console’s inadequate efficiency in the US. The NPD group has released its report for January video game sales and, while it isn’t really offering particular hardware phone numbers, a Gamasutra source states that the Wii U sold “well under” 100,000 units. Nintendo previously revealed that it sold 460,000 systems in December, suggesting that need has dropped off significantly among customers who had not currently decided to get the console at launch.

Tweetro says it’s ‘completely crippled’ by Twitter’s strict 100,000 user token limit

Tweetro stats

Tweetro has fallen victim to Twitter’s strict new API policies that were announced earlier this year. According to an email we received from Tweetro developers, the app saw a huge spike in downloads after the release of Windows 8, and rapidly reached its 100,000 user token limit. Users now receive a “cannot connect to service” error when trying to authenticate the application, and Tweetro developers say the app is “completely crippled” as a result.

Twitter originally said that developers would have until January or March of 2013 to comply with the platform’s API changes, so Tweetro developers are questioning why their app has been cut off so early — especially when Twitter has yet to release its own official app for Windows 8. Tweetro…
