Probably not. But Planet Mat seems to think that an external keyboard is something the iPhone desperately needs. As much as we personally disagree with this, we do think that the design they came up with isn’t half bad. It can double as a case, too. (more…)
I really don’t know how functional this is but it seems that this iPhone case reminds me alot of my zip case that I have for my external hard drive. Nonetheless, it’s sure to catch someone’s eyes.
The Porela iphone case also has a section to hold cards so you can kick out your wallet and condense your cards into here. It measures in at 5″ x 3.5″ and is presented in a black leather finish. (more…)
The Freitag iPhone Sleeves are made of recycled tarp based goods, something that Freitag’s known for. They come in a bunch of different colors and are pretty durable. They’ve handled the heavy highways of Europe for transit, so you’re 3G should be just fine.

Let’s forget that the economy is about to collapse and people are running short on disposable income. Amazon doesn’t seem to care as they’ve just released an iPhone app that will help us to buy more useless crap.
When you upload a photo, Amazon’s Mechanical Turk workers try to match the photo up to products on sale on Amazon.com. You will get results back in 5 minutes to 24 hours, and you’re susceptible to human error. It should be interesting trying to buy one HDTV and getting the link for another. Good luck, people.

The new firmware update for your precious iPhone has hit iTunes. The 246 MB package gives you Street View, over-the-air podcast downloading, and some much-needed bug fixes. Also, public transit, walking directions, and the ability to share your location via email are all making their way to the iPhone leaving us content for the moment.
There are lots of other upgrades so head to iTunes and download the new firmware and let us know how it goes.
Orb 2.0 just popped up in the App Store. What does Orb 2.0 do? It’s a media-streaming app that lets you watch live TV from a tuner connected to a Windows PC, as well as stream music, videos, and photos from their libraries. Plus, Orb lets you monitor a webcam, so you can spy on your roommate to make sure he stays on the other side of the line.
No date yet for Mac and Linux, but be patient.
Buy It: $9.99 via App Store
Damn, so close. Scandinavian wireless carrier TeliaSonera is planning a homegrown application that will grant multimedia messaging functionality to the handset. Let’s hope the application makes it through Apple’s approval. After that, it’s only a matter of time before it lands in the App Store in the US.
Google’s iPhone Search app is live, so head to iTunes and grab it from the App Store. The guys over at Gizmodo have already tested it out and given some screen shots.
“Gizmodo” was understood, surprisingly, as was “bear market” and “bare ass”. That’s right, it was smart enough to tell the difference between the words bear and bare, depending on the context. Also super cool?
Grab the app HERE.
For people on the go, a notebook (obviously) is the best way to go. For people on the go, a 17″ display that gives you a numberpad is not the way to go. I travel with an 11″ display and when I’m punching numbers, I’m left without a numberpad for ease of use.
For Mac users, this dilemma is gone with the help of a new iPhone app called numberkey. Perfect for heavy duty spreadsheet users, this nifty new application for the iPhone and iPod Touch lets you use your mobile device as an ad-hoc numeric keypad for your Mac. Just install Balmuda’s Numberkey connect software onto your Mac, then grab the mobile app from the App Store for $1.99. The two pieces of software communicate via Wi-Fi, adding a familiar 18-key numeric keyboard to your Mac without wires. Not bad, right?
