Sprint launches New Ventures arm, adapts ID and Zone apps for foreign markets

Like any money-hungry corporation, Sprint's branching out to pursue greener (as in the color of dolla dolla bills) pastures. The Hesse-led co's just announced the creation of its New Ventures unit, an overseas- and wholesale-focused entity which is set to expand upon Android's rapidly growing user base to generate some lucrative B2B handshakes with manufacturers and foreign operators. First up on the organization's plate is the white labeled extension of the company's branded apps, now nestled under the carrier agnostic Mobile ID and Mobile Zone monikers. Those software packs will function much like they do here in the US, offering subs a pre-selected assortment of skins containing applications, ringtones and wallpapers, in addition to a centralized hub for account management. No word yet on what international partners have signed up for the licensed service, but with Mobile World Congress only a few days away, we're sure those necessary details will be forthcoming.

Ticket to Ride Pocket adds tracks to 1910 Expansion

Ticket to Ride Pocket keeps chugging along, adding the first paid expansion with Ticket to Ride Pocket: 1910. The $1 extension is based off the expansion for the board game (which is way more expensive), featuring three new modes and 35 new destinations.

The three new modes include: 1910 Classic, where there's no bonus for longest route, but for completing the most tickets. 1910 Mega has players receiving five routes -- instead of three -- and there are 69 destination tickets total, instead of 35. Finally, 1910 Cities only includes major city tickets, which means players need to grab the best routes as quickly as possible and can't focus on their "section of the country" like in the normal game.

The 1910 expansion comes shortly after the core $2 Ticket to Ride Pocket app, which was already a great port of the board game experience, received asynchronous play and had reached 350,000 sales earlier this month.

Proton and Yes team up to offer Malaysia’s first 4G-connected car, promise more to come

The first one may only amount to a MiFi housed in the dash (although that does come standard), but automaker Proton and Malaysian carrier Yes seem to have some fairly grand designs on 4G-connected cars. In addition to providing a WiFi hotpot for passengers, they eventually hope to use the 4G connectivity for a range of automotive-related applications, including vehicle diagnostics, security, and other location-based services. Notably for potential buyers, Yes's 4G coverage of Malyasia is fairly widespread, encompassing over 65 percent of the country's populated areas and the full 960 kilometer stretch of the country's North-South Expressway, as well as a "large portion" of its East-Coast Expressway. While details on those promised services or any future cars remain a bit light, that first one (the P3-21A sedan) will apparently soon be available.

Rating: Blacklight dev making Frogger Hyper Arcade Edition

Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition is in development for multiple platforms, a rating from the Australian classification board reveals, but that's not the news here. Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition is being developed by Zombie Studios, the team behind the heavily homicidal, shoot-em-up, bullet-frenzied Blacklight franchise. Original creator Konami is set to publish the new title, and it received the lowest rating of "General" from the Australian ratings board.

Unfortunately the rating immediately dismisses all of our dreams of a first-person, shotgun-wielding Frogger who doesn't try to avoid the cars in the road -- he just exterminates them. Whatever comes of this strange union, it's sure to display a side we haven't seen from someone.

FCC thinks ISPs should do a better job preventing fraud, theft

Internet fraud and theft are major problems, there seems to be little doubt about that -- according to FCC chairman Julius Genachowski, some 8.4 million credit card numbers are stolen every year. The question, then, is who should be addressing the issue. Genachowski this week called for "smart, practical, voluntary solutions," asking internet service providers to put more effort into helping prevent data theft, hacks and other issues, or risk having "consumers lose trust in the internet," thereby "suppress[ing] broadband adoption and online commerce and communication." The chairman asked ISPs to help avoid hijacking through more efficient traffic routes and to instate DNSSEC to help weed out fraudulent sites.

Alan Wake extending launch deal on Steam for another week

While Remedy has locked down a retail partner for the boxed release of Alan Wake in Europe, a North American deal still hasn't been worked out. Because of this, Remedy has decided to extend the availability of the Alan Wake collector's edition on Steam for another week.

The collector's edition includes everything in the standard edition -- both DLC episodes, The Signal and The Writer, the original soundtrack, some posters and stickers and a manual -- plus optional commentary and background information that can be turned on during the game.


We recently spoke with Remedy's Oskari Hakkinen about Alan Wake's PC debut and the possibility of XBLA follow-up Alan Wake's American Nightmare on the platform. We may be biased, but we think it's a pretty good read.
