Bizness Apps have entered the crowd of DIY iPhone development platforms - saying they can do it from start to finish for just $39 a month.

You may remember yesterday I posted about the Nexus S, well today there are some more details and some pictures of Android 2.3 running for you to check out.

The Windows Phone 7 device hacks are slowly trickling out regardless of the security measures. A hack released last week allows for direct file transfer to your device via USB, and now a hack has been outed that lets even non developers bypass the Marketplace and "sideload" any app you desire onto a WP7 device.
The new tool is called Chevron WP7, which is compatible with Windows XP SP2 and up, and unlocks your phone so that you can install apps without going through the Windows Marketplace. For now, Microsoft only allows this function for those with developer access and wouldn't dream of rolling it out to the general public due to Microsoft not being able to look over or approve sketchy apps. Check out the step by step process at the Source Link.
Engadget is right - years ago the mobile industry was dominated when it came down to units moved, profits made but now it's future success is defined by the number of apps, games and developers attached to each competing platform.
Nokia last week announced 400, 000 new developers over the last year. Microsoft may only have 15, 000 - but it's quality over quantity, right?
Ah Angry Birds. It now has it's own day. Some sources of TechCrunch have been flung into their offices and said that there's going to be something big happening, specifically in London's Trafalgar Square. Which has supposedly become a big venue to launch big games - especially console games.

Memory is already at insanely low prices, but lower prices is not a bad thing, right?

Ah Google Chrome - your extensions are like a big hug to your users. Well, even amongst the pillow fight between Google and Facebook (with Facebook removing the feature of importing your Google contacts from Gmail into Facebook), a new Extension is out that allows you to export your Facebook contacts through Chrome.
It will export your contacts into both Gmail and CSV files. The extension is not officially affiliated with Google or Facebook, obviously after a bit of airtime between sites (like this post) it might disappear. So quick, go export your friends to Gmail!
