Would you want a gold-colored iPhone 5S? [Poll]

Would you want a gold-colored iPhone 5s?

There's a rumor being floated that Apple will introduce a third color option for their next-generation flagship, what's being conveniently called iPhone 5s, and alongside the current Storm Trooper white/silver and Vader black/slate models we're going to get a - wait for it - Threepio gold model. I'll just pause so you can get the Austin Powers and Flava Flav jokes, and "Steve would never...!" gasps out of your system. Done? No? Now? Okay. So what do you think of that idea?

Is gold an important way to appeal to the Kardashians and the Gagas of the world, or to the Chinese (please make a Hung Bao red!), or to... um... I got nothing. Or is it a sign that someone in the rumor world. if not Cupertino, has gone down the crass path and around the tacky bend?

Vote in the poll up top and then let me know why you voted the way you did in the comments below!

Editorial for iPad gets thoroughly reviewed, found to be awesome

Editorial for iPad by OMZ-Software bills itself as powerful markdown editing and workflow automation, and they're absolutely not joking around when they say that. It's a got a full-on Python interpreter built-in, which means if you can script it, you can pretty much do it. How do I know that? Because Federico Viticci has put it through its paces. If you're familiar with Ticci, Editorial for iPad is pretty much the app he was born and bred to review, and this 10k review is pretty much his Pietà. Seriously, I have no idea how much espresso had to die for this review to live. From MacStories.net:

HTC gets - and wastes - Iron Man for an ad

I love HTC. I had a Dream/G1. I had a Nexus One. I'm dumping my Nexus 4 for an HTC One. I'd love them to be a dominant player in the future of Android, because I think they currently make the best product and would drive the best competition for Apple. However, they're struggling, badly, against Samsung right now, and this ad might, in part, exemplify why.

The difference between iOS and Android developers and why it's not just a numbers game

When the iPhone was introduced in 2007, and later when the iPhone SDK (now iOS SDK) was introduced in 2008, Apple explained how it was all based on a similar foundation to OS X, and even named the new frameworks Cocoa Touch, reflecting the Objective-C Cocoa frameworks of the Mac. There were and are differences, to be sure, but that core similarity not only made the iPhone, and later the iPad, instantly familiar to existing Mac developers, it made it interesting.

Anatomy of an iOS 7 icon redesign

iOS 7 is coming this fall - perhaps as soon as mid-September - and in terms of design language and user experience, it'll hit like something shot out of a mass driver. Not only will customers have to transition to a newly objectified, gamified, and dynamic interface, developers and designers will have create matching, perhaps transcending apps to go along with it. How much work will that be? Well, the incredibly talented and generous team over at the Iconfactory have shared their journey in updating xScope mirror for iOS 7:
