MySI Mobile was developed using the Action Engine Mobile Application Platform, which provides mobile users with many features to help stay on top of the latest sports news and developments.

“Our leading-edge customers, like Sports Illustrated, The Wall Street and, have embraced mobile advertising as a way to widely deliver high-value content to the phone without forcing consumers to pay yet another subscription fee,” said Scott G. Silk, president and CEO of Action Engine. “As more companies build mobile applications that make their content easy to use and free to download, the wireless phone will become the premier location for driving brand awareness and loyalty with consumers.”

The MySI Mobile application is available today with support for 29 phones running the Microsoft Windows Mobile platform. Windows Mobile is the exclusive launch advertiser for the new service. To download the MySI Mobile application consumers can text “MYSI” to 58585 and receive a text message with a link to download the service. Alternatively, consumers can type on their phone’s mobile browser and follow the download instructions provided.

    The reason why this company exists is because Ruby is a bloated, obsolete framework that was designed for rapid prototyping, not production websites. You should invest your time into learning Haskell, Scala and Clojure. Functional programming rules.

      Ruby is used for production websites more often than the languages you mention… if you really want to make a production website you’ll learn Java, C#, Python, and PHP.

    Technology is the enabler of business not the purpose!

    It doesn’t matter if the application is written in ROR, Java, Smalltalk, chicken wire and bubble gum.

    As long as the application met the business objective, works and the client is happy.

    I have been a fan of Ruby since we started releasing work in 2005. For the past four years I have seen a lot of promise, a lot of hope and of course hype.

    With the Merb integration and adoption by more and more it will be obvious that ROR has a concrete place in the Web.

    My new launch is in Radiant CMS a Ruby CMS, why- for us-it made sense.

    Quit trolling, I hate geeks that talk about technology like oh NO use the most obscure shit in the world -see look at me I got the T Shirt that Proves I was their first.
