Verizon Has a COW at Tropicana Field PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 23 October 2008 14:57

To ensure high quality wireless service for the thousands of fans and media at the World Series, Verizon Wireless technicians have deployed a high-tech Cell on Wheels (COW) at Tropicana Field and baseball officials as the Tampa Bay Rays play in their first championship series versus the Philadelphia Phillies.

According to Verizon, the COW features a 75-foot telescoping antenna and 11 dedicated voice and high-speed data channels, each of which can handle hundreds of phone calls and data transmissions simultaneously. The unit will strengthen the already robust Verizon Wireless network in the stadium area and throughout Tampa Bay during the expected spike in wireless calls; text, picture and video messages; Internet connections; and other wireless traffic as the home team chases its first championship crown.

"We field the best network and team of technicians every day for our customers across the state," said Frank Wise, Florida region network director for Verizon Wireless. "Deploying this COW is like bringing in your closer to lock up the big game."

During the recent series in Tampa Bay, Verizon Wireless boosted call capacity for the high-tech wireless transmission site that resides inside "The Trop." Other cell sites that surround the ballpark also were enhanced to ensure strong service.

  • Boxscore – A running boxscore from the selected game also includes clickable player names that deliver individual player cards.
  • Summary – A live full play-by-play summary of the selected game also includes a separate review of every scoring play.

At Bat for iPhoneOn Monday evening, released a free update to “At Bat”, the cool widget for Apple’s iPhone (see our review of "At Bat").

Released when Apple rolled out their 2.0 upgrade for iPhone in early July to coincide with the 3G line launch, as we reported, "At Bat" is cool; it’s inexpensive ($4.99), and it’s a must have for the hardcore baseball fan sporting an iPhone.

What does the free upgrade bring? Customized preferences.

Selecting out of the “General” settings, users can now select their favorite team, how often they wish scores to update (1 minute, 30 seconds, or 15 seconds), as well as setting the video playback scaling (Fill Screen, or Fit to Screen).

With the settings, your favorite team’s game gets bumped to the top of the list, and a star is placed next to it. Simple, but nice if you’re flipping through looking for your team all the time. The refresh rate is your typical page refresh you might find on many html driven pages that show player position, and the Fill Screen acts like filling a theater aspect display with a standard broadcast image – fill the screen; remove the bars at the right and left.

The whole package arrived within Apple’s App Store widget. Much like when a missed call comes in, a number is placed showing how many updates are available, depending on the number of apps installed on your iPhone.

As the cliché goes, free is a very good price. And while you have to make the $4.99 investment for “At Bat”, getting free upgrades and functionality adds more value to an already cool add-on for iPhone. Widget Review? My iPhone PDF Print E-mail

iPhone widget

UPDATE: It seems Apple has resolved the issue as we have now been able to sync up with iTunes. Look for a review of the At Bat application shortly.

I really wanted to report on the new At Bat widget for the iPhone today.

No, really, I did.

A slight problem happened on the way to the story, however… today my iPhone is a brick.

Early this morning, Apple released Version 2.0 of the iPhone software. The release has Exchange Server capabilities, as well as a widget to access the new App Store, where waiting for me, and certainly others, is the new At Bat application which allows one to get game updates (see Widget for iPhone? It’s on the Way).

So, this AM, the new update notification arrived through iTunes, we downloaded it, and started the Sync process.

That’s where the trouble hit.

As part of the sync process, the iPhone must connect with the iTunes Store. With the massive influx of those that already own iPhones, on top of those looking to activate the new 3G iPhone release, the Apple servers have been overwhelmed, thus causing timeout messages when the iPhones are attempting to connect to the iTunes Store through iTunes (the odd thing is, you can access the iTunes Store through the interface, but the iPhones can’t).

With the sync process not fully complete, my iPhone is now an expensive brick. Nothing is accessable. I get nothing but a splash image of the iPhone connected to iTunes. My phone is in software pergatory. Support? The Apple Support Disccusion forums have had to deal with the side-effect. They read, "We'll Be Back Soon".

So, as I mentioned, we would have loved to report on how the new widget works with the iPhone. But, I imagine it’s all hands on deck at Apple. No one would want to within a 100 miles of Steve Jobs today.

Wednesday, 11 June 2008 10:28 widget for iPhoneApple Computer, Inc. and MLB Advanced Media will be releasing an widget for iPhone to coincide with the release of the new iPhone 3G slated to hit stores on July 11.

The app called MLB At Bat was introduced on Monday at Apple’s  WWDC keynote on Monday in San Francisco. As reported by

Jeremy Schoenherr and Rob Spychala, technical architects for Mobile, played a role in that demonstration on the stage by unveiling the app. Images were carried on wire stories all over the Internet, showing how the national pastime once again will reach into another massive space in the population.

"It's a good example of the popularity of baseball," Adam Ritter, MLBAM's vice president of wireless, said from the event. "MLB At Bat will constantly update all the data of each game. You not only get to see all the data, but a couple of minutes after that, you get to see the play that put your team ahead or that great defensive play.

"It's going to be very exciting as a fan. You're going to get video and highlights in an application and see your favorite Major League players. You start with the quality of the content, and then consider the device itself, the screen resolution, the fact that it's twice as fast and will connect on wi-fi -- it just looks beautiful."

With the new iPhone being introduced to 70 countries worldwide, MLB sees the application development as a way to reach a larger global market.

"What's also significant about the announcement is that this app will be available to baseball fans with iPhones regardless of where they are geographically," Ritter said. "This will be a worldphone, and that means baseball will be available to more fans around the world. Baseball fans with iPhones will be able to enjoy this app whether they are in the U.S., Canada, Latin America or Japan.

"Right now, every time we sell something, we have to have one-off relationships with carriers for their distribution. From what was announced [Monday], that distribution point is the application store. That affords fans the capability to get this application and distribution that we're not used to seeing with mobile devices."

The Business of Sports Network is awaiting word to see if the new software will be made available to all current iPhone users via the 2.0 software upgrade coming shortly or remain exclusive to the iPhone 3G release. 

UPDATE: MLBAM informs us that the new At Bat application will be available in the new iPhone App Store when it launches, so it will be available for all iPhone devices, not just the new iPhone 3Gs.

"With Tickets@Phone, fans can purchase tickets and go directly to the admission gate."

The A's and will provide information about Tickets@Phone behind Section 120 during the A's game against Cleveland on Friday, May 11.
