Ummm can we say ka-ching! The fact that mobile-games (ie Zynga Poker), online games (ie League of Legends) are all being given away for free, where is the upside…..yes SPEND MONEY in those Virtual Stores to buy Virtual things! I was guilty of it. I suck at poker, I bet all my money and wanted to keep playing. Well, maybe its because I’m addicted to gambling. Nevertheless, these are exciting times for interactive/mobile developers in general. I’m sure we are just scratching the surface.No comments

If you want to make some money off the promising future of mobile/tablet apps, look no further. Consider the Zynga IPO that hits before Thanksgiving.
Coming from a trader that dabbled in stocks, I believe this is an IPO that will indicate the vast money-making potential in the mobile/tablet market. From one of the most popular Facebook games, Mafia Wars and now Farmville, Words WIth Friends, and Zynga Poker! You can’t go wrong.

There have always been 3D movies, now there is 3D TV, event some 3D video games…but is YouTube ready for 3D?
In an article posted by Newsfactor, it is apparent that YouTube is falling for the 3D revolution as well.
