Washington: You, Storm, are no iPhone!

We're not sure if picking on the BlackBerry Storm is even sporting anymore, and you know, we probably wouldn't even bother if RIM hadn't styled it the "Apple Killer" even while bleating that they "couldn't type on glass". Well, according to BlackBerryCool.com, it turns out some other people couldn't type on the Storm's specific type of glass either: the US Government:

StarPlayr for iPhone Officially Waves Bye

Is this really a surprise to anyone who was following the whole Sirius StarPlayr for the iPhone debacle? No wonder Nicemac said their iPhone StarPlayr app was "not rejected" but rather "not approved". It looks like they ran into some sirius issues with Sirius XM and not Apple. Which I might point out, is what many of our readers predicted.

WWDC 2009 Scheduled for May... or June?

In 2008, Apple's WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) heralded our first look at the iPhone 3G, iPhone OS 2.0, Mobile Me, and the App Store. In 2007 it was... WebApps. Okay, scaling, we get it. But that means 2009 should be gangbusters, right? iPhone hardware rev 2,1? iPhone OS 3.0? And... only Jobs knows for sure, but we're sure it will warrant at least a couple Booms! (Where by "sure" we mean "hope").

App Store Devs: Renew Your Contracts... When Apple's Good and Ready to Let Ya!

Almost a year ago, Apple held their iPhone SDK Roadmap Event and unleashed the App Store concept on the world. Developers signed up for iTunes Connect contracts, and now their first year is almost up and they need to renew.

Shortcovers a Kindle/E-Book Competitor for Canadians?

Our best frenemy forever, CrackBerry.com's Kevin sent us word that Canadians currently excluded from all the Amazon Kindle E-Book app goodness may just have an alternative.

CEOh-Snap Daily Double! Palm's McNamee Hurts iPhone but Hearts Mac

No sooner did we report the outlandish statement from Palm backer Elevation Partners head-geek Roger McNamee that come June, every iPhone 2G owner would ditch the platform and AT&T to become Pre-verts on Sprint, than our sibling site PreCentral.net went and updated.

Seems McNamee thinks iPhone Mobile Safari ain't all that, compared to the Pre (even though the Pre uses Apple's open-source WebKit foundation -- which we know comes from KHTML/Konquerer...):
