Old Fashioned Game...on New Fangled Device

Boot Camp feature for Monday, March 16, 2009

An old fashioned game on a new fangled device. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. What has really set Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch apart from the crowd....is the App Store and the vast amount of software available in it. Some of it is very good...some of it... not so much. If you're a fan of the board game Scrabble... Hasbro and Electronic Arts ...are bringing an update to the game onto the iPhone and iPod touch. Bill Carroll is a producer with Hasbro Digital Media...


"Scrabble for the iPhone has your normal way to play, the regular way to play, plus we've also provided a Scrabble slam and a speed version as well."


Can you be playing with multiple iPhones or whatever on the same network?


"You can play with someone else who has an iPhone here in the building, so it is WiFi.


The new Scrabble app arrives this spring for about five dollars...along with Monopoly and Yahtzee...and later in the year, Trivial Pursuit. We're on the Web at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
