Apple Wolfing Down Flash RAM Chips in Advanced of Next Gen iPhone?

Apple is perhaps the most gluttonous consumer of flash RAM chips on the planet, what with most iPod's flash memory based and still selling in the multiple tens of millions and -- oh yeah -- the iPhone and iPod touch. 14 million iPhone 3Gs were sold last year alone and this year?

New iPod touch Commercial... Again Focuses on Gaming

Apple really, really thinks the iPod touch is the funnest ever, and just so they're sure we know it as well, they've released a second 2nd gen iPod touch gaming music video TV commercial.

TUAW's commenters pointed out Apple has even gone to the trouble of setting up a special App Store gaming page just for the games shown in the Franz Ferdinand covered commercial.

Should Apple Add Genius Recommendations to the App Store?

We mentioned this thought in passing alongside Dieter's report on the Nokia App Ovi Store, which he says has far, far better discoverability than the iTunes App Store:

It looks to be much better than your standard “top 50″ list

Apple iPhone Email Highlight Apps

We get it: Apps are the new Internet. If the recent TV commercials weren't hint enough, if redesigning the Apple Stores to put them front-and-center wasn't crystal clear, Apple has sent out an email reminding us that the iPhone Apps, they are good!

Over 15,000 (20,000 but most counts), Apple focuses on ZAGAT TO GO, Flick Bowling, Allrecipes.com, Weightbot, and iHandy Level.
