October's "sports issue" of Pivot lands in November, pretends that nothing happened 48
For all of October we sat and wondered, "When, oh when, will the October sports issue of HP Pivot be released?" Surprisingly, the answer to that query is "November." That's right folks, the Sports Issue of Pivot has been released to the confused and ambivalent masses and unsurprisngly it covers a good number of TouchPad apps that can be tangentally related to sports. After running out of sports apps in the first 30 pages, Pivot turns its attention to general TouchPad apps, including Glimpse, FlightPredictor HD, BeamOut HD, and Pennant (back to sports!). But what we really like is their profile of prolific webOS homebrew developer and now TouchPad App Catalog success story Jason Robitaille (pg 39). There's no mention of the month delay, even in the opening hail, which is a little disappointing. Sometimes you need to own up and address the issues, but it seems that this issue by-and-large is exactly how it was at the beginning of October (we're told it was ready as early as the third of the month).
Update: The @webOSPivot Twitter account notes that the international version for October will be out in "the next few days."
