TC: Steve Jobs says iTablet "Will be the Most Important Thing I've Ever Done"

Not much hear besides the title -- Steve Jobs says the iTablet/iSlate/iPad "will be the most important thing I've ever done" -- which TechCrunch says they haven't heard first hand but have heard second and third hand from multiple sources. Wait... what?

Okay, let's have fun and assume it's true. This from the man who brought or helped bring the Apple II, Macintosh, iPod, iTunes, Apple Retail, Pixar, and the iPhone to market? If he's really that excited about the tablet, then it will be tough to set expectations any hi

Google CEO - Relationship with Apple "Stable, Stable"

AppleInsider reports that during Google's quarterly earnings call, CEO Eric Schmidt was asked about Google's relationship with Apple, and responded:

"I, as a former board member, have a special spot for Apple in my heart, but I will tell you Apple is a very well run company. They have a lot of very good stuff coming. We have a couple of very good partnerships with them, and we also compete with them in a couple of areas. My guess is that is a pretty stable situation for awhile."

Haiti Earthquake Survivor Uses iPhone App as Survival Tool

Apple's iPhone, along with the help of a medical application, has saved at least one life in the tragic Haiti earthquake. American film maker, Dan Woolley, found himself trapped in rubble when the Haitian earthquake struck, injuring his head and leg. With no other place to turn he used his trusty iPhone along with help from a unknown first-aid medical application. The app helped him diagnose his broken foot, make a tourniquet for his leg, and described the best way to bandage his head to stop the bleeding. He even set the alarm clock to go off every 20 minutes to make sure he stayed awake and alert.

65 hours later he was rescued.

Star Wars Opening Recreated in HTML, CSS!

Speaking of Daring Fireball links and HTML5, Guillermo Esteves has re-created the opening crawl from the original Star Wars using only web-based technologies. It currently runs exclusively on the bleeding-edge WebKit nightly builds, Safari for OS X Snow Leopard... and on the built-in iPhone Safari (though it doesn't look as polished).

That's right. No Chrome anything, including Android 2.1. No Palm webOS browser. That it works on the iPhone's and iPod touch's MobileSafari... is kind of crazy considering it hasn't been updated since iPhone 3.1.2 back on Oct. 8. Just goes to show how seriously Apple is pushing the web on the iPhone.

So, yeah, words moving away into perspective in your browser, but this is without QuickTime or Flash or anything to strain your bandwidth or burn your battery. Very nice.

YouTube video of the WebKit nightly build version after the break!
