Part 1: Using BlackBerry PlayBooks As Video Intercoms At The BlackBerryCool Office

11 Comments

At our offices in downtown Ottawa, we have a problem where our door requires a biometric thumbprint scan in order to get in so we have to rely on people knocking to receive guests and deliveries. This doesn’t work so well when everyone in the office has headphones on and we can’t hear anyone knocking. The great thing is that we all have BlackBerry PlayBooks at our desk and the video chat system can act as a visual notification so you can not only know when someone is at the door, but you can see who is there too.

Traffic Wonder Puzzle Game Now Available for the BlackBerry PlayBook

Comments

Traffic Wonder is a great puzzle game that is available for iOS, Android and the PlayBook. The game has some very eye-pleasing artwork and the game is a fun and addictive concept. The point of the game is for players to try and map out the routes that will get their cars to the appropriate color-coded garages without a) running out of fuel and b) hitting any other cars. It’s sort of like the Flight Control game we’ve played on BlackBerry in the past.

Some Thoughts on The Netflix App for PlayBook

22 Comments

There’s been a lot of buzz about the Netflix app for PlayBook from users and media alike. As soon as Netflix tweeted they won’t be supporting PlayBook, the media jumped on it thinking that the reason was because the PlayBook was somehow inferior. We’ve talked to people at RIM and sources close to the situation, and we can certainly say that the reason to not go with the PlayBook has absolutely nothing to do with the tablet’s hardware or software. Sure, volume sales might have something to do with it, but not really when you consider Netflix has a Vita and 3DS app. It more likely has to do with politics and behind-the-scenes discussions. Some thoughts below from us and a link to our buddy Doug at Untether.

Paw Print Games are a very successful game company that brought KAMI RETRO to the PlayBook. The company is here at GDC talking about how to port a game to the PlayBook, and apparently their first port was a huge success. The company said that given the development time and sales of the game, the development time was more than paid for. The company is so happy with PlayBook that they’ve committed to the next title, Wacky Wave, to launch on PlayBook.
