New Snapdragon-Powered Sharp Smartphone- LEAKED!

It looks like Sharp is working on another Android smartphone, with the model number SH8188U representing it. No clue on how large the screen is on this slate, and it will be running Android 2.2 Froyo, telling us that we don’t deserve Gingerbread? But what about the holidays?

In either case, it will have WiFi, HDMI output, and HD video recording via the 5MP camera. The device will be fueled by a roaring 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

ICANN Approves Unlimited Top Level Domains

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has recently voted overwhelmingly to approve unlimited TLD (top level domains). Whereas people used to only have a select number of domain options (.biz, .org, .com, or .net)–users will now be able to choose any domain they want.

Although many were originally concerned that this new change would confuse users, that worry has apparently been set aside. At the present time, I cannot envision too many people adoption a facebook.facebook approach, but I could see various creative ways to market a website.

Apple Changes In-App Subscription Pricing

Apple has recently changed its guidelines on the pricing of In-App subscriptions through the App Store, but haven’t publicly commented on the recent change. The new changes include that there are no longer any requirements that a subscription be at the same price or less than it is offered outside an app, meaning that the app store can charge $10 for an app that costs $2 somewhere else.

Furthermore, there is no guideline about price, at all. App Store subscriptions were first introduced this past February, and the introduction of the service had opened the door to a wide range of in-app subscription services such as magazines and newspapers.

Foursquare, Reddit, Quora, Hootsuite, And Moby Experience Simultaneous Meltdown

Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud has been experiencing issues today. Elastic Compute Cloud, or EC2 is Amazon’s affordable cloud-based Web hosting service and has helped grow many popular startups in social media. Unfortunately, Amazon has been working through kinks this morning with technical issues in the EC2.

Popular services like Foursquare, Reddit, Quora, Hootsuite, and Moby experienced the rumble. Amazon, one of the world’s leading cloud services providers allows affordable pricing that enables smaller companies to grow into their bigger potentials. The downside to all this of course is that many sites are hosted to the same service, and a outage like the one experienced today can easily wipe out the social experience for many.
