During Tuesday's "Spotlight on Notebooks" Keynote, Steve Jobs wasn't the only jean-and-dark-shirt uniformed Apple exec on stage. COO Time Cook took an unusual turn, discussing Mac business. SVP of Design, Jonathan Ive, an even more unusual presence in front of the audience, introduced the new "brick" unibody concept. And Marketing VP Phil Schiller -- who's no stranger to Keynotes -- took part in the Q&A at the end.

I use my iPhone all the time. At work or play, it completes me. I have a few gripes (no sense beating the cut/copy/paste dead horse) - there are some glaring omissions that make it difficult for people to take the iPhone seriously for business or just everyday productivity.
Some kind of sync-able task or to-do list is such a basic feature, and fortunately, the advent of 3rd party apps have made it possible for developers to provide a plethora of apps to remedy this deficiency. The two apps that you folks in the forum picked for this TiPb AT WORK smackdown is Things and Appigo's Todo. Users have given them both a 4-star rating in the App Store and, quite honestly, it's a VERY close call to me.
Which of these two get-er-done apps are the best? How do they stack up? Read on!
Major League Baseball's App for the iPhone has been in the news due to a price drop -- and the little controversy surrounding it's seasonal expiry -- as of late. Well, now Apple has thrown a huge spotlight onto it again, this time likely hoping to ride the playoff popularity wave.
For baseball fans who want their fix when they want and where they want, the commercial gets it right: "game changer" indeed.
Today we are looking at the Golla Cube Music Black Pouch for the iPhone 3G, iPhone and iPod Touch. I currently use a hip holster for my iPhone 3G, but I have been looking to branch out to something a little more “hip”. The Golla case fits that bill perfectly! Want something that looks good? Has a few extra pockets to store cash and cards? Look no further than a Golla pouch!
Yet another iPhone related lawsuit only this time it does not involve Apple... shocking isn't it?
Coors beer company is being sued by Hottrix, creators of the strangely popular iBeer app for a cool 12.5 million for copyright infringement. The lawsuit alleges that Coors copied its iPhone application iBeer. Both Hottrix's App and Coors' iPint simply create the illusion of beer being poured out when a user tilts the handset as if the user is drinking it. The only major difference between the two apps is that iBeer costs $3 and iPint was free - it has been pulled from the App Store by Apple.
Ha! No iPhone news indeed! We knew Steve Jobs wouldn't abandon us completely, not his baby, not his "third-leg" love child! Jason Snell, putting the new MacBooks under the microscope for Macworld, discovers (via Daring Fireball):
