Sony Ericsson wants mobile software developers to have the best of both worlds.
Next week at JavaOne, the company plans to demonstrate its Project Capuchin, which will allow software developers to create applications for mobile phones that can use pieces of both Java ME and Adobe Systems' Flash Lite to create their applications. The company plans to release a set of APIs (application programming interfaces) and a software development kit in the second half of this year to bring the two different mobile development styles together.
For example, Java developers could decide to use the richer user interface technology found … Read more
Yesterday Grooveshark launched the newest iteration of its music service, Grooveshark Lite. It's a big step forward for the company, ditching the need to download anything and creating a cleaner, tighter version of its player that runs right in your browser.
The core of the service is still retained in the Lite version. You can track what's popular, get recommendations, and listen to your saved library of tracks. The big change is the interface. Built in Adobe Flex, it's snappy, beautiful, and incredibly intuitive. It definitely takes a hint from the iPod with simple hierarchical menus that … Read more
Adobe has admitted it can't bring Flash to the iPhone just because it thinks that would be a neat idea.
Comments made Tuesday by Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen were widely interpreted Wednesday morning as confirmation that Adobe and Apple have figured out a way to make Flash available on the iPhone. Unfortunately, that's not exactly what Narayen said, and the company has now also clarified that it can't simply use the iPhone software development kit to bring Flash to the iPhone unless Apple approves.
We at Crave enjoy writing about gadgets in new colors simply because it drives our U.K. counterparts batty when we spell it without the "u." Colors, colors, colors--take that, mates.
Anyway, the latest excuse is a new rainbow offered for the DS Lite by the pigment masters at Colorware, according to Boy Genius Report, for those who aren't satisfied by the Nintendo's standard options. The customization shop (not shoppe) will provide the same extensive palette it offers for so many other products, colors that you can mix and match to free your inner Jackson Pollock. … Read more
This post was updated at 10:15 a.m. PDT to correct the spelling on Anup Murarka's name.
Even though it has plans to release a competing technology, Microsoft has agreed to license Adobe's Flash Lite technology for its Windows Mobile operating system and browser.
The two companies early on Monday announced that Microsoft has signed a license to use Flash Lite and Reader LE in future Windows Mobile handsets as plug-ins for Internet Explorer Mobile. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, such as what the companies plan to do when Microsoft releases Silverlight for Mobile, a … Read more

Though I don't commute, and thus don't see the need for toting a portable console along to entertain myself on the journey, I must confess that it's tempting to own one, given the endlessly fascinating accessories the Japanese are coughing up for the DS Lite. Since March 6, the handheld has been getting its own official movie download service called DSvision.
A collaboration of Nintendo, print firm DNP, and digital media distributor am3 (the makers of GBA Movie Player), the service requires a kit that costs 3,890 yen (about $37) to kickstart the downloading experience, which … Read more
If cobalt blue represents one end of the fashion spectrum for the DS Lite, then this snakeskin version is definitely at the other.
Another victim of the designer trend run amok, this Diamond Python by Japanese artist Mayumi Hasegawa is designed to fit the poor handheld gamer, according to Newlanches, hopefully not too snugly as to squeeze the life out of it. Then again, that might be preferable than having to wear something as hideous as this.
If you're really a glutton for punishment--or simply have horrible taste--you can get skins that cover both the top and bottom for … Read more
