HP could be pilot for new "Jobs' Business Nightmare" show on FOX

After reading the news Precentral.net broke about Palm once again being split into separate software (likely to wither) and hardware (likely to die) units, it made me wish we could get a new show on FOX this fall called "Jobs' Business Nightmare". Just like the Gordon Ramsay cooking show, Steve Jobs could tackle another bumbling, downward spiraling tech company each week, shake them up, reorganize their product matrixes, and turn them back towards the path to success. Just like he did with Apple. HP could be the pilot.

Angry Birds Bra now available

Etsy seller, SceeneShoes, is now selling Angry Birds bras!

This bra features the red bird and green pig from everyone's favorite game, Angry Birds! Hand painted using acrylic paint with a textile medium. It is permanent and washable, and it will come with care instructions.

The bra is available in sizes 34A- 38DD.

I'll admit, I'm tempted to pick one of these up! This bra cracks me up and it would bring me lots of giggles knowing that I'm sporting some Angry Birds under my shirt. I'd be interested in an Angry Birds bikini as well!

iPhone 5 made entirely from fruit and vegetables [Tuesday fun video]

The crazy guys from Topfruit have put together a very clever time lapse video showing what they think the iPhone 5 will look like. Strangely enough, these fruit obsessed people decided to make an iPhone 5 solely from fruit and vegetables. They also point out that no fruit was harmed during the making of the video. All the fruit was used for compost at the end!

Take a look at the video after the break and let us know what you think!

Friday Fun: The unofficial One more thing (WWDC 2011 Song)

The phrase “One more thing” is such a well known term delivered at the end of Apple keynotes by CEO Steve Jobs. It’s usually just before announcing an amazing new product right at the very end. In honor of this, Cory Smith of Cardinal Media Technologies has put together a rap song entitled......One more thing (WWDC 2011 Song). Some of the lyrics are below:-

Phil Schiller told us we wouldn’t want to miss this would have been gold if there’d been more specifics so I look to Gruber discern his predictions to see if the rumors will turn into fiction damn this consumer addiction to all these gadgets and the magic within them all the designs by Jonny Ive so I guess I better check who’s blogging live can’t wait to download the developer preview

You can listen to the full song right after the break. It’s good fun and all adds nicely to the build up to WWDC 2011.

Trapped in an iPhone [Tuesday fun video]

The video blow shows Ronen Verbit having a silly time playing with a little red ball. It doesn't sound very interesting, until you see how he uses three iPhone 4 screens to tell the story.

Ronen, along with a few friends, were able to shoot three separate videos and combine them into one creative and fun story displayed across the three screens depicting him being 'stuck' inside the iPhone 4. It's rather deviceful (no pun intended!) and they did a great job putting this together -- check out the full video after the jump!

Poll: What do you want iPhone 5 to look like?

What do you want iPhone 5 to look like?online surveys

What will the next generation iPhone 5 look like when it's finally released -- likely this fall? Will it be like the iPhone 3GS was, the same casing with faster processors, cameras, etc.? Or will it be an all new design inspired by the MacBook Air or iPod touch? (I've gone out on a limb and said my wish is a return of the metal back). Maybe a bigger screen like some of those Android Phones, or a smaller screen like the nano? Or could Apple push the pace of innovation again and finally give us a translucent device, like we've seen in Avatar or Iron Man?

If you could sit down with Steve Jobs and Jony Ive, and they asked you what you want iPhone 5 to look like, what would you tell them? Vote in the poll above and then let us know the details in the comments below.

(And watch the video after the break for a funny take on iPhone 5...)
