World of Warcraft Coming to the iPhone?

World of Warcraft Coming to the iPhone?

Confession: World of Warcraft came on the scene a little late to fireball my demographic center. Sure, I saw that William Shatner is a Shaman and Ozzy's got a new Prince of Darkness to worry about, but other than hearing friends were going to try it and then... never seeing them again, I've just filed it away in the same drawer as Ultimate Online and Everquest... until I saw Touch Arcade's story today.

Bluetooth 3.0 Standard Announced - in Time for iPhone 3.0?

We mentioned Bluetooth 3.0 before, and now it looks like the spec is getting a tad more specified. WMExperts has the story covered but suffice it to say it's stronger, better, faster, longer. (Or at least it borrows 802.11 WiFi power when it needs to be).

Friday Fun Video: Palm Pre Fans Dreaming in 1960s Technicolor

Friday Fun Video: Palm Pre Fans Dreaming in 1960s Technicolor

Springtime, when videos turn their attention towards impending gadgets that are other than the iPhone. Samsung Instinct, BlackBerry Storm, Nokia... what was it again? This time it's the Palm Pre, with interactions lifted from the iPhone and a faux-Scottish accent taken from Scrooge McDuck, and it's dreaming of taking out the iPhone with a little 1960's Adam West Batman ZAP! POW! action, chum.

Only problem? The iPhone is the 2000's Christian Bale style goram Batman.

Best of luck with that little fight, then...

Quick App: Currencies Currency Converter for iPhone

Quick App: Currencies Currency Converter for iPhone

Currencies is a simple yet gorgeous currency converter that lets you quickly and easily find out how much that sandwich at Heathrow airport will really cost you in good old US greenbacks. (Hint: not cheap!)

Developer Luc Vandal shared his favorite feature with us, and we have to admit it's ours as well:

there are no useless buttons. Just tap on a field, select currency or enter amount and everything gets updated on the fly. No Done button, no OK button, etc. Want to make sure you have the latest rates? Just shake to refresh and amounts are updated almost instantly.

He's right; it works as good as it looks. Which brings us to the UI design, done by Cocoai's Sebastiaan de With. His growing reputation is well deserved. Small but delightful little touches like the exposed electronics when rearranging the currency fields is especially artistic and appreciated (see above).

Who would have thought conversion apps would be leading the quality charge on the App Store?

Currencies is available via iTunes for $0.99

If you've tried it, let us know what you think. More screenshots after the break...

Steve Jobs Returning "End of June" Makes WWDC 2009 Jobsnote Unlikely?

As covered in the Apple Q2 2009 conference call, Apple Chief Financial Officer, Peter Oppenheimer, repeated the company line that they "looked forward to [Steve Jobs'] return at the end of June".

Apple's World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) -- where in 2008 Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone 3G to the world -- takes place this year June 8-12, which is decidedly before the end of June, and thus the end of Jobs' leave of absence.
