Cast of Disney's "Lemonade Mouth" flash mob Los Angeles Apple Store [video]

Over the Easter weekend, some of the cast of Disney's Lemonade Mouth decided to turn up at the Apple Store in The Grove, Los Angeles and flash mob it. Flash mobbing is a newish craze that involves a group of people turning up at a location and performing an unusual act or performance without permission.

The routine, lead by Chris Brochu and Hayley Kiyoko, two of the film's stars, organised the flash mob with 15 other friends and decided to capture the whole performance on video. They performed the song Determinate from the Disney Channel production Lemonade Mouth.

The video is after the break, take a look and enjoy the looks on the customers faces and Apple Store staff gently escorting them out of the building!

TweetDeck for iPhone, take 2

TweetDeck hasn't launched an all new version of their popular Twitter client for iPhone -- they've launched a whole new app. It supports a ton of features:

  • All major Twitter features are supported: Sending updates, retweeting (native and old-style), favourites, mentions, direct messages and searching
  • Posting to multiple Twitter accounts is a breeze
  • Facebook status updates, notifications, wall posts, Likes and comments are all at your fingertips
  • Configurable, combined Home, Me and Inbox columns are standard, bringing all your feeds and notifications together
  • Fully flexible custom columns allow the combination of any number of different feeds, from all services and all accounts. You decide what you want to see, just pinch a column and start configuring.
  • Innovative navigation of Twitter profiles helps you discover new feeds that can all be added as columns at the touch of a button
  • See the conversation in context with tweets above and below in detail view.
  • Easily send long posts thanks to full Deck.ly support
  • Clean & clear compose window features image uploading, geo-tagging and username autocomplete for @mentions. Press and hold a link to auto-shorten using j.mp
  • Login with your TweetDeck account to speed through the setup process, or just provide a Twitter or Facebook account and get started.
  • Jump to the top of a column with a quick tap of the iPhone status bar.

With features, however, comes complexity -- starting at login and going from there. No doubt a lot of users will love the power but many more will probably shake their head and go backLike we said up top, it's not a new version so it won't show up as an update -- you have to hit the link below and install the new app. If you do, let me know what you think -- the Twitter client of your dreams or... of your nightmares?

Sony announce two tablets to take on the iPad [the competition]

Sony has just unveiled two tablets to take on the iPad 2. The two models will be known as the Sony S1 and Sony S2; both will run Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The S1 is aimed squarely at the iPad form factor and comes with a 9.4-inch screen. It will feature a Tegra 2 processor and will have 3G/4G cellular data and WiFi. An IR (infra-red) port is included as standard, to control Sony’s line of Bravia televisions. Sony’s Playstation Network will also be accessible.

The S2 is the interesting model as the form factor is totally different to anything we have seen before. It has two folding 5.5-inch screens that can work together or independently.

Not many more details are available at this stage as Sony say specifications are subject to change. The two models are slated for a release in the fall of this year.

Take a look at the short promo video after the break, then pop back here and let us know what your think of Sony’s tablets in the comments!
