The next major release of Poker Copilot will be Poker Copilot 4. It is currently under development, and is going by the codename “PCP Dallas”. It is due for release mid-2013.
Buy Poker Copilot now and you’ll get a free upgrade to Poker Copilot 4, even if the price goes up. Anyone who purchased Poker Copilot 3 from September 3rd, 2012 onwards will also receive a free upgrade. If you bought Poker Copilot 1, 2, or 3 before September 3rd, 2012, there will be a small upgrade fee.
At this stage all you’ll notice is PCP Dallas is exactly like Poker Copilot 3, except a little worse. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks working on some major internal work to conform with upcoming OS X changes. Apple has recommend that programs like Poker Copilot now include their own copy of Java, which while solving some support and maintenance issues, as well as ensuring that Poker Copilot will continue working, have blown out the size of the download from 20 MB to 80MB. I do hope to reduce that significantly before final release.
I’m in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a week. I’m staying here to break up the trip a little on the way from Spain, where I live, to Australia, where my family live.
Today I went to one of those multi-story electronics-only shopping malls you find in many South-East Asian cities. I bought myself a bluetooth keyboard for my iPad. It made it much easier to use my iPad to answer my daily swag of Poker Copilot support emails, while sitting in a noisy faux-Irish pub near my hotel.
I’m writing this blog post from my iPad, using the same bluetooth keyboard, in the same faux-Irish pub as a test run. WIth the right app (BlogPresss) it is working well.
For Business 2.0 in 2003, Paul Keegan investigates “The Card Sharks from Silicon Valley,” a new breed of “poker nerds” who were taking the game by storm. “The pros call these guys ‘fish,’ and the schools of them swarming around the Bicycle Casino are the reason poker pros love the sudden glamorization of their game. Fish get excited by watching tournaments on TV, teach themselves poker using simulation software, then start betting online with real money.”
