Marvel running free first issue promotion

Yesterday at SXSW, Marvel Comics announced a new promotion that offers more than 700 first issues from the company's history at no charge. The free comics can be downloaded from within the Marvel and Comixology iOS apps, as well as from the web based Marvel Digital Comics Shop. The promotion covers a mix of recent comics such as Uncanny Avengers, Civil War, and Avengers VS. X-Men, alongside classic issues like Amazing Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, and Captain America. Marvel encourages customers to download as many of the free issues as they can before the promotion ends at 11pm EST on March 12.

Philips launches Hue developer tools

Philips has launched a new software developer program for its Hue light bulbs that allows anyone to create mobile apps for controlling the web-enabled LED home lighting system. Originally launched in October with a dedicated iOS app, the Hue system allows users to set lighting schedules, as well as change the color output of the bulb. The Hue developer program consists of a range of Open APIs and an iOS SDK, as well as various guides that can help developers start programming with Hue. In addition, Philips has also set up a developer forum where customers can connect with each other and find answers to various support questions.
