Very possibly the coolest thing you can do with your iPhone

Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of cool flatulence apps out there (yes, that was sarcasm….), but none of them could ever be as cool as this: It’s not released yet, but the date on their website shows 2010 as the release date, so hopefully sometime this year. ¬†They also have pictures of […]

Actually. ¬†Even if the phone WAS technically better than […]

A cool iPhone 3G S design

This is a well done design idea for the iPhone 3G that was released well before the announcement that the externals of the iPhone were not going to have any design refresh.¬† I really Apple would have done something different to make the iPhone 3G S stand out, but maybe they’re holding off an external […]
