iPhone Live podcast tonight at 9pm EDT, come chat!

Judge iPhone Live by the MP3 recording do you? Hmm? Hmm? And well that you should not, for the Live show is even more awesome, and a powerful awesome it is! The chatroom creates it, nurtures it. Its energy brings the hosts and topics together and binds us. Luminous podcasts are these and not just compressed recordings. You must join the Live show and feel it's force around you; here on TiPb, between you, me, and the other chatters. Even between Apple and the iPhone.

(Happy Star Wars day!)

Apple hires THX's Tomlinson Holman -- bring the noise!

Apple hires THX's Tomlinson Holman -- bring the noise!

It's ironic how the company that brought us the iPod has never really had great speakers (or earbuds!) but Apple might be about to change that in a big way by bringing in the man behind Lucasfilm's amazing THX audio quality program, Tomlinson Holman. According to Chief TWiT Leo Laporte:

I have it on good authority that Tomlinson Holman (of THX fame) is joining Apple to run audio. Major upgrade.

How to apply BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber for iPhone 4 [sponsored]

The BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber for iPhone 4 is a skin that sticks to the glass black and stainless steel antenna to change up the look and protect from scrapes and abrasions. They're not the same as the thin, clear BodyGuardz films we've shown you how to apply before, and are actually even easier to apply.

The BodyGuardz Carbon Fiber for iPhone 4 is available from the TiPb iPhone 4 Accessory Store. Check out the video above and follow on for the how-to after the break!

AT&T customer care representative says no iPhone 5 in June or July? [rumor]

AT&T customer care representative says no iPhone 5 in June or July? [rumor]

Let's be frank -- we can't believe we're posting this but it just keeps getting sent to us. Firstly, carrier CSRs are typically the last to learn about anything Apple. We've actually gone to carriers the day of launch and they've known less about it than we have -- they're simply not informed. So please take the below account with a blue and white striped Death Star sized grain of salt. Now, an AT&T customer care representative has supposedly told a customer that Apple had confirmed this to them:

Poll: What do you want iPhone 5 to look like?

Poll: What do you want iPhone 5 to look like?

What do you want iPhone 5 to look like?online surveys

What will the next generation iPhone 5 look like when it's finally released -- likely this fall? Will it be like the iPhone 3GS was, the same casing with faster processors, cameras, etc.? Or will it be an all new design inspired by the MacBook Air or iPod touch? (I've gone out on a limb and said my wish is a return of the metal back). Maybe a bigger screen like some of those Android Phones, or a smaller screen like the nano? Or could Apple push the pace of innovation again and finally give us a translucent device, like we've seen in Avatar or Iron Man?

If you could sit down with Steve Jobs and Jony Ive, and they asked you what you want iPhone 5 to look like, what would you tell them? Vote in the poll above and then let us know the details in the comments below.

(And watch the video after the break for a funny take on iPhone 5...)

Apple airs new iPad 2 commercial - If you Asked

Apple airs new iPad 2 commercial - If you Asked

Apple has released a new commercial titled "If You Asked". Interestingly, the word "iPad" is never used. Instead, the iPad is shown with apps relating to specific types of people while the narrator says what those people would call the iPad 2 if you were to ask them.

If you ask a parent, they might call it intuitive. If you ask a musician, they might call it inspiring. To a doctor, it's groundbreaking. To a CEO, it's powerful. To a teacher, it's the future. If you ask a child, she might call it magic. And if you asked us - we'd say it's just getting started.

To watch the commercial, follow along after the break!

iOS 5 notifications - should there be an Apple app for that?

iOS 5 notifications - should there be an Apple app for that?

Better notifications is probably at or near the top of the feature request list for iOS 5, and Andreas has come up with a concept for how he's like to see it done -- an Apple iOS notifications app!

He's set up a website and posted a video and... it looks interesting. Like Rene said on last week's iPad Live, Apple isn't simply going to add notifications any more than they simply added multitasking to iOS 4. They're going to look at the actual functionality users want and then figure out a way to provide it, in a traditional way or a new way. (And we'll either love it or hate it, or often a little bit of both.)

Andreas' idea isn't like Boxcar on the App Store or LockInfo on Jailbreak, it's a bit of a hybrid approach. Check out the video below and let us know if this is the way you'd like to see Apple handle notifications in iOS 5 (and why or why not!)

[iOS Notifications via The Next Web, thanks @KiTTGT]
