Wednesday Fun Video: 1984 Gets DoubleTwist'ed

DVD Jon, who gained fame and notoriety for cracking DVD and iTunes encryption, has since devoted a lot of his time and energy into DoubleTwist, and iTunes replacement. The above video is, of course, a parody of Apple's anti-IBM "big brother" commercial that aired during the 1984 SuperBowl, this time recasting Apple -- and Steve Jobs -- as "big brother" and intimating they've become what they once mocked. All this by way of promoting the next release of DoubleTwist for Mac, coming Oct. 6.

Apps in Need of Rejection: Ones That Steal Your iPhone Number and Call You to Up-sell

Apps in Need of Rejection: Ones That Steal Your iPhone Number and Call You to Up-sell

So you make an app free, get people to download it, then use it to violate your users' privacy by pulling their telephone number off their iPhone so you can call them and try to annoy them into coughing up money for your paid app.

Yeah, that should be a rejection, if not a banning.

(No, we're not mentioning the name of the app, why give them publicity? Picture)

O2 UK: We Still Have iPhone... and Palm Pre!

Pop-quiz: You're O2 and you just lost iPhone exclusivity in the UK, and now have to compete with both Orange and Vodafone for users' iPounds. What do you do? Why, tell them you still have the iPhone... and are getting the Palm Pre?!

We’re proud that we’ve been able to offer an exclusive iPhone deal to our 20 million customers for the last two years. We always knew that iPhone exclusivity was for a limited period of time, but our relationship with Apple continues and will be an ongoing success. We have over 1 million iPhone customers and they remain very important to us.

iTablet to be Announced in January, Launch in Early Summer, Run iPhone OS?

Apple might be preparing a 10.7" multi-touch iTablet with 720p resolution, running the iPhone OS, for announcement in January and release in May/June 2010. That's just one of the rumors dropped by iLounge this morning, from a source they say was accurate about the most recent iPod nano, iPhone, and Chinese iPhone stories.

Like the iPhone and the iPod touch, iLounge's source claims both a 3G and non-3G version will be available, so users can weigh always-on connectivity vs. another monthly telco bill.

Crazy Rumor Tuesday: Touch Screen Remote for New Apple TV?

Is Apple planning a larger, touch-screen enabled remote control to go along with a next generation Apple TV? Boy Genius' tipster, the same one who leaked iTunes 9 app organization and social integration, says yes indeed. And if the image above is accurate, one of the updates will be -- Safari.

Newton Developer Returns to Apple as Marketing VP

Newton Developer Returns to Apple as Marketing VP

Apple has hired Michael Tchao as Vice-President of Product Marketing reporting directly to Senior Vice-President, Phil Schiller. What's noticeable about this new hire, however, is that Tchao has worked for Apple before -- he's one of the original developers of Apple's Newton message pad.

Apple, Tchao, and all involved are being mum on what Tchao's specific roll at Apple will be, but rampant internet speculation has, of course, gone something like "ZOMG! iTablet!"

Vodafone UK, Ireland Also to Start Offering iPhone in Early 2010

Vodafone has just announced that they will begin selling Apple's iPhone 3G and 3GS in the UK and Ireland in Early 2010.

So, UK readers, with O2, Orange, and Vodafone all on the table, who're you going to go with?

Apple's iPhone App Store Passes 2 Billion Downloads

Apple has just announced that their iTunes App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch has passed the 2 billion downloads bar. Boom indeed.

Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO, gives the quote:

The rate of App Store downloads continues to accelerate with users downloading a staggering two billion apps in just over a year, including more than half a billion apps this quarter alone. The App Store has reinvented what you can do with a mobile handheld device, and our users are clearly loving it.

iPhone Tops 2009 CoolBrands Rankings

iPhone Tops 2009 CoolBrands Rankings

Looks like the iPhone topped the 2009 CoolBrands Rankings, coming in at a frigid #1, with Apple itself at #3 and the iPod at #4 (that's 3 out of the top 5 spots, according to our match department). Says Stephen Cheliotis of Centre for Brand Analysis:

The iPhone is something everyone has been talking about. There has been so such a buzz around it and people who haven't got one, want one.

And yeah, with the way they spell Centre and the notable inclusions and exclusions on the list (Xbox 360?) it's likely not a US-based survey. Still

Here's the full top 10:

  1. iPhone
  2. Aston Martin
  3. Apple
  4. iPod
  5. Nintendo
  6. YouTube
  7. BlackBerry
  8. Google
  9. Bang & Olufsen
  10. PlayStation 3
