When the going gets tough, the tough gets going and so does Yahoo.

Yahoo is under desperate measures at the moment. The company is taking another step to regain balance and that is by means of customization. The once Internet titan is hoping that this revamp on their platform might save the sinking ship.

Yahoo is about to announce a publishing platform for apps that will give access for users to receive personalized content on their mobile phones. Unnamed sources from this project, allegedly named “Deadeye,” said that the new platform provides content-based upon specific preferences, search items and social media. One thing is sure, focus of this service is more on an app for iOS and Android powered devices.

New York Times reports that an announcement will be made later this month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. However, Yahoo is neither confirming nor denying this rumor.

“We will not be announcing a Toshiba TV or Blu-ray player or demonstrating the products at C.E.S. We have an understanding with Google about the future product roadmap and will bring the right product out at the right timeframe.” ---Jeff Barney, vice president of Toshiba’s digital products division.

People will not get the chance to have the first look on the new Google TV next month on CES 2011. Unfortunately, Google asked for a few more time before from its partners–Toshiba, LG Electronics and Sharp. The Consumer Electronics Show will take place this January in Las Vegas. According to New York Times, Google needs to tweak the software a little bit to make it perfect for launch.

As of the moment, only Sony and Logitech are the ones who are actually selling the Internet TVs. Samsung and Vizio are supposed to reveal their Google TV devices at CES 2011 opted to go with simultaneous launches with Toshiba, Sharp and LG’s sets.

“We will not be announcing a Toshiba TV or Blu-ray player or demonstrating the products at C.E.S.,” said Jeff Barney, the vice president of Toshiba’s digital products division. “We have an understanding with Google about the future product roadmap and will bring the right product out at the right timeframe.”

Credible Sources Speculate about Verizon iPhone

Written on October 11, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

We've talked in a previous article that Verizon is most probably carrying iPhone by next year. We reported about chipsets and all. And now New York Times printed some more juicy news.

A source that claims to be in direct contact with Apple has something to reveal. According to the source, Apple is into adapting iPhone 4 to work with Verizon’s wireless network. It also says Verizon customers can access iPhone early next year. The New York Times also cited the source making it more credible. About two months ago, we’ve written an article about the chip sets for the Verizon iPhone that should arrive December. Even Bloomberg reported a January launch.

Some analysts had a prediction about the rumored five-year exclusivity deal between Apple and AT&T, and Verizon’s 4G technology will hold Verizon iPhone until 2012.

Let’s see if these sources are true to their words.
