Apple TV gets Wiimote! [Jailbreak]

Developer Tom Cool has successfully brought Wiimote functionality to the Apple TV by activating a custom BT stack that uses Apple TV's built in Bluetooth. So far the demo only shows a virtual representation on screen which perfectly mirrors the movement of the Wiimote, however it shouldn't be too long before full Wiimote or even iPhone/iPod touch controlled gaming is brought to the Apple TV.

Are you excited for some Apple TV jailbreak gaming? Leave us a comment and check out the video below!

If your iPad app is rejected from the iTunes App Store there's a slim chance that, just like developer Ram Arumugam, you might get a call from Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Arumugam emailed Steve Jobs after his app was rejected but instead of getting the typical "[something curt] - Sent from my iPad" email back, he got a phone call. The Seattle Times reports:

The two talked about Arumugam's app, called "Economy for iPad," and why it was rejected by Apple

YouTube Link

MarkdownMail for iPhone and iPad allows you to write articles in the Markdown format. You'll then be able to export the markdown in an email or send beautifully formatted HTML emails from the app itself. For those who aren't familiar with what markdown is, let's cover that first.

Washington Post app for iPad

The Washington Post has launched an iPad app and while newspapers (and magazines) are still struggling to find their way towards the digital future, by the looks of the video below, their marketing departments are becoming savvy and fast.

Yes it would be nice to have an iNewstand for periodicals. Yes it would be great if Apple and publishing outlets to come to an agreement on subscription plans and customer data. Yes it would be tremendous if it all just worked and I could wake up every morning and have my newspapers and magazines already downloaded and waiting for me, Kindle-style but iPad-quality. But for now it's at least interesting to watch the various companies experiment with apps.

If you've checked out Washington Post for iPad, let us know what you think.

Iconfactory teases Astronut for iPhone [video]

Astronut is a new iPhone game coming this holiday season from the Iconfactory, makers of Twitterrific, Ramp Champ, and other well-known iOS titles. Chock full of cosmic-scale, arcade-style action, Astronut promises 24 levels across 6 sectors, and full support for Apple's Game Center. And as with most things they put pixel and code to, it looks frakking awesome.

Iconfactory's Gedeon Maheux told TiPb:

"I firmly believe Astronut is our finest entertainment title to date. We’ve crafted the game play to be fun and addicting, while creating the beautiful graphics users love to see on the stunning retina display on iPhone and iPod touch. We can't wait to get it into player's hands."
