We mentioned Bluetooth 3.0 before, and now it looks like the spec is getting a tad more specified. WMExperts has the story covered but suffice it to say it's stronger, better, faster, longer. (Or at least it borrows 802.11 WiFi power when it needs to be).

Friday Fun Video: Palm Pre Fans Dreaming in 1960s Technicolor

Springtime, when videos turn their attention towards impending gadgets that are other than the iPhone. Samsung Instinct, BlackBerry Storm, Nokia... what was it again? This time it's the Palm Pre, with interactions lifted from the iPhone and a faux-Scottish accent taken from Scrooge McDuck, and it's dreaming of taking out the iPhone with a little 1960's Adam West Batman ZAP! POW! action, chum.

Only problem? The iPhone is the 2000's Christian Bale style goram Batman.

Best of luck with that little fight, then...

Steve Jobs Returning "End of June" Makes WWDC 2009 Jobsnote Unlikely?

As covered in the Apple Q2 2009 conference call, Apple Chief Financial Officer, Peter Oppenheimer, repeated the company line that they "looked forward to [Steve Jobs'] return at the end of June".

Apple Wants You to Give Mom an iPod touch!

Not content with having only sold 37 million iPhone OS-based devices (which includes the iPod touch), Apple has set about stalking and capturing a whole new class of prey: our moms.

Only one problem, Apple. Our moms may jailbreak!

(Joking, we still have to help them start "the internet" with that little compass or curled fox icon... Sigh...)
