Beyond that free offer, Amazon’s beta site provides a catalog of over 600 games, all available for free on a trial basis and at $9.99 or less for purchase.
Amazon acquired Reflexive in late October for an unspecified sum. In addition to its own Web portal, Reflexive has been known for selling Windows, Mac, and online games from outside developers on hundreds of GameCenterSolution Affiliate Web sites. Reflexive has developed its own games, too, including Xbox Live Arcade title Wik & The Fable Of Souls, and the Ricochet series.
Title screen from Jewel Quest II”At Reflexive we have always prided ourselves on maintaining good relationships with everyone in the industry, and are excited that Amazon shares that philosophy. We intend to provide the best distribution platform anywhere, and to continue working openly with all the participants of the casual games space. Together it is our priority to continue this inclusive attitude going forward,” wrote Reflexive CEO Lars Brubaker, in a blog post in October.
“What this means for all you developers is that it’s time to get excited about your future with Reflexive,” he said. “It means we’ll be able to expand our distribution network to include Amazon’s amazing distribution channel. With Amazon we will bring a huge new group of customers into play.”
With Amazon opening its beta site yesterday, Reflexive’s Web site remained open for business today. A search of Reflexive’s arcade by Betanews showed that the Reflexive site still offers dozens of games for free download, including the three Amazon currently offers.
However, Reflexive’s “top ten” game entries on the PC side are each priced at either $9.99 or $19.99, with the exception of Totem Tribe — a game that Reflexive is offering for free on a trial basis but at $9.99 for purchase.
Reflexive’s GameCenterSolution site for developers remained online today, too, continuing to offer developers 40% of the net receipts for sales of their games on the Reflexive Arcade and GameCenterSolution partner sites.

here is the tiny interesting article i’ve found this morning:
When you are into online business, a website is essential for online presence. One major marketing issue in the design of website is the color of the website. The color should be chosen in such a way to match the general mood of your visitors and the theme of your website. So, it becomes essentials to know the psychology of colors and use them in your website.< ?xml:namespace prefix ="" o />
When choosing colors for your site it is important to employ contrasting or sympathetic and complementary color schemes. It is important to identify your market and ensure the psychological message you are trying to get across with the rest of your site design, words and images is complemented and enhanced by the appropriate color scheme.

The S500 in mysterious green
Sony Ericsson released three new cell phones that aim to capture on the still hot thin handset craze. Two of the new handsets should make it to North American shores while one model features two dazzling colors rarely seen in the mobile world.
The S500 in spring yellow
The Sony Ericsson S500 features a 2-megapixel camera with a 4x zoom, a media player (though not Walkman-branded), a speakerphone, a memory card slot and stereo Bluetooth. The S500 features a slider design that is 0.55 inches thick and is available in the very unique hues of mysterious green and spring yellow. We’re not sure what’s mysterious about the green but it is quite lovely from what we can tell. Also look for color themes and illuminations that change to reflect the passing seasons and the change from night to day. The quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) phone should be out in North America by the third quarter of this year.
The T650 in midnight blue
Somewhat related to the S500 is the Sony Ericsson T650. Sporting a more common candy bar design the T650 is 0.55 inches thick as well but comes in midnight blue and a shade called growing green. I guess the latter isn’t mysterious as the green on the S500. Features include a 3.2 megapixel camera with a 3x zoom, a media player, a memory card slot and stereo Bluetooth. It’s also a 3G phone but it supports only the 2100 UMTS network that’s not used in the United States. The triband (GSM 900/1800/1900) handset also should see the light of day by the third of this year.
Finally, the Sony Ericsson T250 is low-end camera phone that offers a VGA camera, a speakerphone, text and multimedia messaging, an FM radio and basic organizer applications. The simple candy bar form factor is 0.51 inches thick and sports a metal skin that comes in black or silver. Two dualband versions will be available (GSM 900/1900 and GSM 850/1900) and it should debut in Europe and North American the second half of this year.
