Modern Warfare 2’s not-so-long awaited map pack, The Stimulus Package, is being teased with a gameplay trailer.
The DLC will be available for download over Xbox Live from next week, while PS3 and PC users will have to wait 30 days. Ouch, Microsoft. That really stings.
Bandwidth blog’s series of office photos posts takes you inside the hottest internet startups locally and abroad. This week we visit Zoopy.com, an online and mobile social media community. Zoopy made headlines last year when they were acquired by cellular giant Vodacom. Since the acquisition Zoopy has gone from strength to strength – launching a redesign, announcing various media partnerships and producing high quality webisodes shows (some in HD) labeled as Zoopy TV.
Their offices are decorated in true startup style, funky walls, iMacs everywhere and chill areas for employees to relax in – we take you inside:
Props goes out to Zoopy’s CEO, Jason Elk, for sending us the photos.
Admob has launched a number of great tools designed to enable publishers to more efficiently manage their publisher account. The mobile advertising network made headlines last year when Google announced they where acquiring Admob.
The New Publisher Dashboard allows publishers to view key statistics for their mobile websites and apps from one streamlined location. Users can customize the AdMob interface to see data that is most important to them such as revenue for the day, real-time pending earnings or performance statistics by geography. Improved navigation also makes it easy for a publisher to quickly review key performance metrics for each site or app in their account
Enhanced Reporting UI gives users the ability to customize, view and save reports from the same interface. Publishers can easily save time by saving reports they run on a regular basis. Reports can be saved for either a fixed date range, June 1-30 for instance, or for a dynamic time period such as the previous 7 days. Users can also create reports for different groupings of their sites or apps, for example viewing performance for all Android apps together.
Reporting API (Beta) enables both publishers and advertisers to build their own internal tools and dashboards that incorporate AdMob data. All statistics available through the AdMob interface can be accessed through the Reporting API allowing users to easily evaluate and compare their performance to that of other networks. The Reporting API can be found in the Tools section of their AdMob account.
Server Side Controls enable developers using the new iPhone, Android and Flash Lite SDKs to dynamically control ads within their applications from their AdMob account. For example, users can easily edit the text and background color of their ads along with the refresh rate of their applications without the need to submit the changes to their respective app stores. This not only saves time, but also allows developers to test different aspects of their apps and optimize the content based on their findings.
You probably couldn’t guess what CyberDodo, star of his own series of video games, is up to in his latest adventure. Hands up if you thought it was “defending children against sexual exploitation”? Anybody?
Of course, the rights of children are a serious, serious topic but at CyberDodo.com, they’re also the stuff that video games are made of. The website, which counts Interpol and the United Nations Commission on the Rights of the Child as its partners, aims to spread awareness of several threats to children in the world, including starvation and sexual slavery.
So, how are these games? (more…)
