German IT-News Golem.de reports that german federal data protection officer Peter Schaar and his Berlin collegue Alexander Dix recommend not to use Spotify services as it does not comply to german data protection law (“Telemediengesetz”).
The german Telemediengesetz requires anonymous or pseudonymous registration of internet services. By forcing customers to use Facebook this law is broken by Spotify.
Selected developers who recently downloaded the Palm Mojo SDK now received mail that Palm has some open positions for their Early Access Program.
Developers need to apply with their app. If being accepted they will be provided an assigned Palm account manager for technical and review questions.
As early birds devs will get the developer registration almost for free – only a $5 fee will be required for PayPal verification.
Palm seems to be in the final preparations with their Developer Program and App Catalog. They explicitly write they want developers to help with “final scalability testing”.
Palm will officially open the doors for the Developer Program in december. So if you’re a developer the Early Access Program seems to be the last chance to get into the developer program early and rebated.
