Could we not only be seeing iPhone 2.1 this Tuesday, but a 2.1 with secret features deliberately kept from the 4 developer beta's just so Steve Jobs can see our stunned rapture when he pronounces BOOM!
Not evil twin to theiPhoneBlog.com Week in Review, not an invasion by Fake Steve, This Week in Smart Phone Schadenfreude brings you all the feel-better news you need about the smartphone world outside Apple’s current media dominator.

Join us as we mock review the big news from last week at our sister sites. Everybody loves sibling rivalry!
Trouble finding a certain app in the app store? Well, there is a new website out there called iPhonexe (mobile version can be found here) that gives everyone with a iPhone a alternative to using Apple's official app store. While I personally have not checked for every single app currently in the app store, iPhonexe claims to include them all, broken down into categories ready for nice and easy browsing. Keep in mind that this does not bypass Apple's app store completely. If you click "Buy Now" you are taken directly to the app in the app store to purchase it via iTunes.

Look, advertising is a mysterious thing, okay? It takes some crazy genius can figure out how to make you want things without you even realizing that's what's happening. Any Don Draper monologue can tell you that.
But, as Rene asked, who were the geniuses who came up with this one?
Okay, so we pretty much all now know what the iPod Nano 4G will look like, but what about the iPod Touch 2G? If iLounge's sources are right -- surprise, surprise -- the upcoming refresh will see it slightly thicker but more tapered, just like what happened to the iPhone back in June. What else?
