Valentina ADK, reviews
In brief: MacNN has posted reviews of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 and several iPod accessories from Grandmax, while Paradigma Software and Mirye Software Publishing are giving away licenses of Valentina 2.5.8 ADK Standard Edition to software developers. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 has finally come to the Mac, with the help of Transgaming's Cider software, but the game feels unpolished.
Review: Grandmax Music Band-it iPod cases and earphones
We have also posted a review of several Grandmax products, including a backpack, an armband, and retractable headphones. The Backpack has two pockets, one for the retractable headphones, and one for the iPod. Instead of an open top in which to insert the iPod, the armband has a closed top and a horizontal slit in the back. The convenience of the retractable headphones makes it easy to take them off and on without aggravation.
Celebrate 10 years of Valentina
From February 14th to the 18th, the Valentina 2.5.8 ADK Standard Edition is available for free to developers, and is fully upgradable for the future. Paradigma and Mirye are offering developer kits for Apple Cocoa Framework, Adobe Director, REALbasic, .NET Framework, and C++, among others. Users are required to fill out a form to download the kit of their choice.
