Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and others scramble for new top-level domains like .app, .xbox, and .book
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has revealed the names of the 1,930 applications for new generic top-level domain names (gTLDS). Under the new program companies will be able to register their equivalent to a .com or .org address. New applications include .android, .app, .love, .ico, .homes, .ibm, .chase, .schmidt, .movie, .android, and .meme.
.app is one of the most contested top-level domains, with 13 applicants including Google and Amazon. Microsoft has applied for a total of 11 domain names, including .Xbox, .Hotmail, and .Windows. Apple appears to have only applied for one, just .Apple, and Google has applied for over 100 domain names including: .Android, .Dog, and .Blog.

Rumors continue to heat up that Apple will enter the television market next year, stepping up its Apple TV “hobby” into a greater revenue-generating vocation. The company would clearly like to repeat the kind of rousing success it has seen in smartphones. There, it entered a market at least as crowded and competitive as that for televisions whereas most of its Windows rivals have barely been able to eke out a few models with nominal share..
Indeed, the challenge is not as much about competition as commoditization. At first glance, this would be a curious time for Apple to enter the TV space. The HD and flat-panel transitions on which premium manufacturer brands and retailers once feasted has long passed. “Flat-panel TV” and “HDTV” are now just “TV.” And prices for smaller sets are settling into a range familiar to those who remember what they cost back in the heyday of CRTs.
What’s different, though, is that the state of the smart TV market looks strikingly like the smartphone market did before Apple’s entrance. The market essentially has “feature TVs” that present a few popular canned services (YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, etc.) and “smart TVs” that are a fractured mixture of homegrown offerings (from companies such as Panasonic, Samsung, LG and Toshiba) and an experience-challenged licensed OS (Android from Sony and Vizio).
The company has clung to the idea of TV as a passive experience.

That Apple had the original App Store isn’t under dispute, but should the company have the right to exclude others from using the same term to describe their program repositories? Microsoft says no, and has this week filed a motion with the US Patent and Trademark Office asking for it to dismiss Apple’s trademark claim for “App Store.” Arguing that the mark’s constituent words are generic both individually and as a pair, Microsoft brings out the big guns by quoting Steve Jobs himself — the Apple CEO’s exposition on the topic of Android fragmentation included specific mention of multiple “app stores” for the Google OS. Microsoft has now lodged its complaint with the proper authorities and it’ll be interesting to see which side of the great divide the decision falls on.

gdgt – new in gadgets
…on my iPhone. I have the player connected via Ethernet cable to my network and my iPhone is connected via WiFi to my network. I am unable to get the device to register with the software though. In the instructions it appears that both devices only need to be on the network and that they do not communicate directly.
Anyone else have experience with this?

Shazam, an amazing app that lets you identify any song by just holding your phone up to it, has turned off the tap for its free users.
It has introduced a premium version of its app called Shazam Encore for $5 on the Android Market. The paid version of the app went live Tuesday evening.
That means Android users who now download the free version will get a seven-day premium trial, and if they don’t upgrade at the end of that they willÂ be limited to identifying and tagging just five songs a month.
Shazam hit prime time when it launched its app on the Apple App store in 2008. Since then it has gained 15 million users on the iPhone aone and has 75 million users overall.
In November 2009, Shazam introduced the paid version of its app for iPhone users. The premium version offers unlimited tagging of music and recommendations that suggest other music similar to the track thatâ€™s been tagged.
Users who downloaded and used the free app before the introduction of the paid version will continue to get all the features they had, including unlimited access. It’s a smart move on Shazam’s part to keep its existing users happy, while trying to make money off its product.

I am sure that many of you are familiar with the mischievous and delightful Olivia, the pig who is just a bit different. She’s been in books, on television and now she is making her appearance in an iPhone app.
I was introduced to Olivia through her first couple of books, Olivia and Olivia Saves the Circus, as well as the board book Olivia’s Opposites. The art was gorgeous, the lack of color variety obviously intentional, and the story awesome. Here was a pig who refused to be like everyone else, and was proud of that fact. She had her own way about things, which I hoped would also encourage children to be proud of, and cultivate, their own individuality.
Now you can also find Olivia in her own iPhone/iPod Touch app called, oddly enough, Olivia. The game is all about painting, but it isn’t the same as other painting apps I have seen. You don’t just pick a color and fill in an area. Olivia teaches you how to mix colors to make new ones, including mixing in white and black to make at least two levels of tints and shades. As you’re mixing colors, Olivia explains what you’re doing and what color you get out of the mixing. Because there is more than one level of mixing, almost the entire color palette is open to you. There is even a cup of water to clean your brush when you’re ready to change colors. If you aren’t ready to mix colors, however, you can always just play with the primary colors, plus black and white.
The best way to start the game is to go through the helpful tutorial. I do highly recommend this. It explains how to use the interface to mix the colors. It wasn’t intuitive at first. It also explains how to paint small areas that are hard to tap. All of the instructions throughout the game are spoken, which makes it great for non-readers. There is also cute Olivia music playing in the background.
When you’re ready to really dig in to the app, you can peruse Olivia’s six different rooms full of stickers to paint. Each room has five stickers. Some are of Olivia, some are of other things such as a treasure map. When you’re ready to repaint the stickers in a room, you can reset that room and start over.
Olivia is currently available in the iTunes store for $2.99. It is intended for kids age 4 and up, but it can even be fun for grownups to play around with.
Wired: Sophisticated color mixing, fun Olivia interface, appeals to a decently wide age range.
Tired: Once you’ve painted everything several times, you may wish for more options.
Note: I received a copy of Olivia for review.
