News 'Blogs'

I find news sites like Engadget, Gizmodo and Wired all majorly biased. These recent news reports regarding Android making a company like Rovio a ton of money, OpenFeint putting 100mil into helping devs port games from iOS to Android or even creating new games are great news. You wouldn't know that this is great news based on the reports coming out of the fanboy trio of news blogs. They consistently call Android games a 'bottomless well' as if there are no good choices out there. There are tons of choices in Android games and apps right now and it's only going to get better.

The future on mobile platforms for developers should be about MULTI PLATFORM, not exclusives per device. Also, when you have a third party like OpenFeint that works again on MULTI PLATFORM, you have an opportunity to bring multiple types of users into the equation. Something like Apple's Game Center goes hand in hand with how this company does business. There is another web based company that acts in a similar fashion; facebook. These are blackhole areas of the web, hardware and software. People choosing to support these closed, walled garden approaches to consumers are doing nothing but hurting ALL consumers. I have spoken with my wallet for a long time, until a company like Apple can cater or at least recognize other people are out there that don't want their products, I won't ever be supporting them. Fuck You
