  • Video of TomTom's iPhone accessory and app

    We saw photos of the TomTom accessory for the iPhone yesterday but now we have video of it. This is basically a little dock with a USB cable and a GPS booster. Not a huge deal but this could feasibly mean the end of standalone GPS devices, which is kind of important. What think you? Read More

    Official: The iPhone 3G S

    Here it is, kiddies: the latest iPhone. Just one year after Apple announced the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 3G S has been announced.

    A guy who knows a guy at Apple says he saw a guy who drove a guy to work who knows the kids of a guy who works with the guy who works next to the office of the guy who brings fresh ground coffee to the girl who puts water into the coffee-maker for the guy who brings the coffee and single, perfect bearclaw to Steve Jobs' sub-assistant's assistant who works next to Steve Jobs' real assistant's… Read More

The benchmarks are now in, and it seems that it is indeed a better deal as it outperforms the $299 more expensive model almost across the board. Read More

    When is a Steve-note not a Steve-note?

    When it's a Schiller-note!
