First look at Anthelion
PDAmill has broken their silence with information about their newest project. The makers of Snails have now decided to tackle 3D space combat on a PocketPC. Dubbed Anthelion, the new game is still currently in alpha stage, so information is scanty, but PDAmill is planning on an August 1st release date, price to be determined. Having never seen the game in action, useful commentary is limited, but the initial screenshots appear impressive, boasting highly detailed 3D graphics.

Pumatech acquires Loudfire
Pumatech, maker of Intellisync, announced an agreement to acquire all the assets of Loudfire, a Tulsa based company that made the software program LoudPC. LoudPC allows anyone with a web browser or web-enabled phone to access their email and PIM data located in Microsoft Outlook products. Coupled with Pumatech’s Outlook sync experience, this could result in some very interesting developments down the road. In the mean time, Pumatech will immediately begin selling LoudPC via it’s online store.
From the waaaay-to-much-time-on-their-hands department… "PalmApple is an open source Apple IIe emulator for PalmOS PDAs." The site goes into great detail about what works, how it works, and what will eventually work, but it entirely glosses over the question of ‘why anyone would want to emulate an Apple IIe on a Palm anyway’?
The saddest part is that only on an OS 5 machine does the speed come even close to a native IIe’s 1 MHz processor.
