Games coming to Apple TV in iOS 4.3?

According to one of TUAW’s tipsters, there is every possibility that the Apple TV is heading towards online gaming with the iOS 4.3 update. When we say online gaming, we don’t mean the poor offerings of Game Center, this could go much further.

References found in the latest beta of iOS 4.3, refer to “ATVThunder” and indicate online games and merchandising will soon be available via iTunes and then to your Apple TV. Think Apple’s version of Xbox Live! The possibilities are endless and could include scheduling online games with friends, viewing leaderboards and much more.

Standing the line for the Verizon iPhone!

AT&T offering unlimited mobile to mobile to any number

AT&T mobile to mobile calling will be free to any mobile number starting Thursday, February 10th. What's the catch you may ask? You must have some type of unlimited messaging plan on your account. For individuals, the cost is $20 for unlimited messaging and for family plans, it's $30. You'll also need to be on a "qualifying" Nation or FamilyTalk plan.

Any of you plan on adding messaging just to get this feature? Or more importantly, is it swaying any potential Verizon switchers into staying with AT&T? I have a sneaky feeling this is the first of many deals both carriers will roll out to attract potential iPhone customers. Ah, gotta love competition!

Apple preparing iPad 3 for September?

Could Apple be preparing to surprise consumers -- and the growing competition -- with a Retina Display packing iPad 3 at this September's traditional iPod event? Daring Fireball's John Gruber is guessing they might while TechCrunch is saying they're hearing it's on the table. DF:

How could Apple release a third-generation iPad just six months or so after the second one? Maybe it won’t be an actual next generation model. Maybe it’s more like an iPad 2.5, or iPad 2 Pro — a new higher-end model that sits atop the iPad product family, not a replacement for the iPad 2 models (which, of course, haven’t even been released yet).

HP (not Palm!) announces Veer, Pre3, webOS 3.0 TouchPad

HP held their Something Beyond event today where they announced the new, tiny Veer, the beefed up Pre 3, and their iPad competitors, the TouchPad. (And I'll note with sadness it was HP, and no longer Palm that announced them.)

The Veer replaces the Pixi as the mainstream fashion phone, only now it packs the Pre slider form factor shrunk down to credit-card size (don't call it MiniPre!). I'll miss the iconic front-facing QWERTY that made the Treo famous but for slider fans there's a lot -- read: a little -- to like here. Check out's Veer hands on for more.

The Pre 3 is the Pre on Hulk serum. Bigger screen and far more powerful internals. If HP can nail the build-quality they could realize every dream original Pre-users have had. I'd have liked a slab form factor here, but I have an iPhone so HP is at least sticking to Palm's guns on hardware keyboards. Check out's Pre3 hands on for more.

The TouchPad is HP's answer to the iPad, with identical display size but quadruple the RAM, a front-facing camera, and webOS 3.0 which really shines on the big screen. The UI doesn't scale automagically (it was unrealistic to think it would) but HP has moved some controls to the top, made notifications into a hybrid drop down, and cards and stacks just look gorgeous on a tablet. Check out's HP TouchPad hands on for more.
