I think it is funny that I just recieved the escapist news letter, on my iPhone, read the article on my iPhone and am now commenting on my iPhone. Congrats escapists you captivated my eye balls for a good 20 min or so.

Even in the 2002-2003 timeframe, the body-count for "mobile entertainment" companies was fairly high, and the tech at that time was utter sh*t with a side of chips. But Trip can be very single-minded when he wants to be, and in this case it appears to have paid off.

As Jon Stewart might say...... [odd hand gesture....] Kudos.

Sounds like Popcap might just have some competition.
