Newer Apple bumpers now fit 3rd party accessories better

Good news -- the new Verizon iPhone friendly Apple bumpers now fit 3rd-pa One of my biggest gripes with Apple's bumpers is that the charge port only fit Apple chargers. If you use any third party sync cables, chargers, or battery packs they would never fit. I have a Griffin Power Jolt battery pack, a Griffin car charger, and several retractable chargers lurking around the house. It always made me angry when I'd have to take off the bumper to use any of these.

New Apple subscription service making software-as-service unfeasible on iPhone, iPad?

Readability, the service that takes the cruft out of online articles and gives you pure, gloriously legible text, has been rejected from the iPhone and iPad App Store due to Apple's new subscription service and its policies. If you're not familiar with Readbility, think Instapaper or the Reader button in the latest version of Safari (which ironically uses Readability's technology!) However, this has far wider ramifications as it suggests all iOS software-as-a-service (SaaS) front ends might like

Apple to adopt 10Gbps LightPeak soon?

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/styles/400w400h/public/images/stories/2011/01/ipad_speed.png" alt="Apple to adopt 10Gbps LightPeak soon?" title=Apple to adopt 10Gbps LightPeak soon?" width="297" height="400" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-53052" />

Intel's new ultra-high speed, 10Gbps LightPeak connector might just be adopted by Apple soon, and under their own branded name, according to CNET's sources. That's more than 4x faster than USB 2.0's 480Mbps, which is currently supported by iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Summer Glau and iPhone 4 in Esquire

Summer Glau did a swimsuit photo shoot for Esquire and in the companion video, busts out an iPhone 4 to take some front-facing pics and to answer a call. We don't post a lot of celebrity iPhone sightings here on TiPb because, frankly, there are far too many to post (and we don't have CrackBerry's eagle eye for them anyway) but when that celebrity is also from Firefly and Terminator... well, that too much geekdom to pass up.

Check out the (Flash! Blame Esquire! Get Skyfire!) video after the break!

[Esquire, thanks browncoat!]

Updated: Twitter suspends UberMedia clients for privacy, monetization, and trademark violations

Twitter recently suspended all Twitter clients supported by Ubermedia. Among the clients suspended are Twidroid and UberTwitter, which are both insanely popular on Android OS and Blackberry OS. They also operate and support the popular TweetDeck client which is available on iOS and several other platforms. They've also acquired Echofon, another popular Twitter client for iOS.

According to Twitter, they've been working with UberMedia since April of 2010 when they were operating under the name TweetUp, which also apparently violated some copyright issues. Currently Twitter is claiming that Ubermedia has changed the content of tweets in order to generate revenue for themselves. They've also pulled the clients due to privacy issues concerning direct messages over 140 characters.

When asked about the suspension, Twitter spokeswoman Carolyn Penner had this to say:

We ask all developers in Twitter ecosystem to abide by a simple set of rules that are in the interests of our users, as well as the health and vitality of the platform as a whole.

We often take actions to enforce these rules; in fact, on an average day we turn off more than one hundred services that violate our API rules of the road. This keeps the ecosystem fair for everyone.

Some of the allegations being held against UberMedia are pretty serious. For the full letter Ubermedia received, hit the break!
