Patent Watch: Always-on iPhone Status Indicators

In similar fashion to the patent for a today screen, Apple Insider is reporting Apple's new filing shows a way of displaying icon-like status indicators on the iPhone's display even though the phone is locked with the backlight not turned on. Apple seems to be paying attention lately to alerts/notifications and that is great news!

Apple Releases iTunes 8.0.2

Harbinger of things to come? Or just coincidence? You decide. But while you're deciding, head on over to Apple Software Update and grab yourself a copy of iTunes 8.0.2 and its quality, connectivity, and accessibility fixes.

(Though if you've jailbroken, or intend to Unlock when it becomes available, AVOID as we've already seen that the new MacBook lineups have jailbreak unfriendly iTunes builds, and this could be more of the same).

Nokia N96 Gets Bruce Lee Edition... iPhone Could Still Take It!

Gotta admit, this Nokia N96 Bruce Lee Edition is pretty cool. Bruce Lee put Kung Fu on the map, and while I'm not sure the current generation of tiny Skidoosh'ers would know him over the Panda, it hits all my nostalgia strings. (I'm sure Jeremy is waiting impatiently for the other Bruce -- Campbell, that is -- to show up, while Brian may, just may, be holding out for the King himself! Of course, Sam Jackson will probably be ****ing next...)

Of course, even with Saint Bruce's way of the intercepting phone, the N96 would still eat a whole heaping, hurting, helping of Jobs Sifu's Dim Mak -- that's the death touch fellas -- were it to even try and enter that iPhone dragon's lair.

But yeah, I'm jealous.

And iPhone do hit back...

UPDATED! Google Using Private API's For Advanced Voice Search?

UPDATE: iPhone dev extraordinaire Erica Sadun investigated over at Ars and found the following: Google is both linking to Private Frameworks and using unpublished APIs. While the latter is likened to jaywalking, the former is apparently a ban-worthy offense. Yikes. Check out her complete investigation for more. And now that it's public, the question shifts to what if anything Apple will do about it? Cave to Google over a killer feature and betray the confidence of other developers, or yank Google's app, alienating a huge (if guilty) partner and likely creating another furor among users?

Apple Trying to Offer More DRM-Free Music on iTunes?

According to CNet (via Apple Insider), Apple is in talks with the remaining 3 out of the Big 4 record labels who still refuse to allow iTunes to sell DRM-free music.

Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, and Sony BMG currently provide DRM-free music to rival services like Amazon MP3 as a way to promote competition to iTunes, though the lack of availability of these services outside the US, along with iTunes continued (and growing) dominance in digital music, may be causing them to rethink that position.
