Apple Co-Founder Woz Did Not Ditch iPhone for Google's Nexus One

Yesterday NBC Bay Area reported (and Android Central gloated!) that Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, had replaced his iPhone for the big bark and less bite Google/HTC Nexus One. TiPb never believed Woz would ever relinquish his beloved iPhone and, sure enough, NBC Bay Area has now updated their story:

ScreenGuardz Privacy for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

NLU Products, makers of BodyGuardz, were gracious enough to take some time out at CES 2010 and show TiPb their four-way ScreenGuardz Privacy film for iPhone. Four-way means it won't just shield your iPhone from prying eyes in portrait mode, but horizontal as well. Buh-bye over-the-shoulder airplane movie snooper!

Apple Exploring Contacts on the Home Screen - Apple Patent Watch

The Apple patents keep on rolling out and today the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office accepted Apple’s filing for a patent that would allow for contact icons to be placed on the home screen, along with the ability to invoke apps, retrieve and display contacts information, or dynamically display related information all tied to an individual contact.

<

blockquote>"The icon can also be used to invoke one or more applications that are personalized to the contact. The icon can be modified to display information related to the contact. In one aspect, an icon associated with an entity can be temporarily displayed on the mobile device based on the proximity of the mobile device to the entity."

This is pure speculation on our part but it's possible you will see this patent come to life in the upcoming iPhone OS 4.0. Hopefully when January 27th comes we all will see what is in store for the future of the iPhone OS.

Now please excuse me while I go add a few more contacts on the home screen of my Moto Droid, since it's been doing that for a while. ;)

One more screen shot after the break!

Powermat Inductive Charging for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

Inductive charging is the future, and one of the companies trying to bring it to the iPhone is Powermat. I say trying only because, unlike our friends over at CrackBerry.com, we won't be able to just swap in an inductive battery and go about our business. To truly bring inductive to the iPhone, Apple will have to build it in the way Palm does with the Pre and Pixi.

But Apple is Apple, so companies like Powermat are working around them with cases. The iMore Store has the 2009 Powermat models in stock, but coming later in 2010, they're getting sleeker and adding a second, slightly longer case that includes an extended battery.

Powermat, and others, believe one day inductive charging will just be built into our counters, desks, cars, etc. Hopefully Apple includes it in the 4th generation iPhone. I know I want it.

Geodelic Location-based Discovery for iPhone

Geodelic [Free - iTunes link] is a location-based discovery app for the iPhone that knows where you are and uses that information to recommend points-of-interest such as restaurants, stores, and shows.

I had the pleasure of watching their show-stealing presentation at CES 2010's Mobile Apps Showdown last week, and based on the amount of energy and creativity they put into that alone, I'm really eager to try this out and see how it develops.
