Apple: "Don't Use Multi-Touch on Android!" Google: "Okay..."

We've heard whispers relating to this one for a while, but now VentureBeat (via MacRumors) is putting text-to-screen about it:

Apple, which of course makes the signature multi-touch mobile device, the iPhone, apparently asked Google not to implement it, and Google agreed, an Android team member tells us.

Monday Humor: iPhone Attacked! Cartoon Short

Monday Humor: iPhone Attacked! Cartoon Short

Our public frenemy number one, Kevin from CrackBerry.com rubbed his nefarious hands, squealed in sinister glee, and shot off this link to a video showing all the jealous, outdated smartphones ganging up on our elegant, perfectly balanced iPhone for a little cartoon chaos. (Also: someone dubbed -- poorly -- some kind of Brooklyn accent on our iPhone hero: everyone knows he really speaks like a chorus of Steve Jobs).

The language is NOT appropriate for children, so stay away if you're not old enough to play.

Google Announces Google Sync for iPhone - Exchangify your Google Data

Here's a welcome surprise for you: Google has now created Google Sync for iPhone so that you can sync up your Google Contacts and Google Calendar. They are doing it by making their data look like an Exchange server -- meaning that if you're not already using Exchange on your iPhone for work, you can point it at Google's servers (see full instructions here) to get your contacts and calendars pushed out to you. Nice? Nice.

Review: Seidio Innocell External Battery Pack for iPhone 3G

Review: Seidio Innocell External Battery Pack for iPhone 3G

The Seidio Innocell External Battery Pack for iPhone 3G is the latest accessory to try an mitigate the lack of a user-changeable battery. Unlike cases that strap on to your iPhone, or dongles that plug in to the bottom, the Seidio Innocell, available for $39.95 from the iMore Store, tries to find a compromise between the capacity and convenience: a good bit of power in a form factor that's fairly small and unobtrusive.

How does it do? Find out after the break!

How Should Apple Handle App Store Demos?

How Should Apple Handle App Store Demos?

There are no demos available in the App Store, we know this. No try before you buy, no download now, pay later. According to Erica Sadun at Ars Technica, even mentioning demo in your verbiage, like beta, will get you a swift kick in the rejection button. Free "Lite" versions are the only way to go.

Zach Epstein over on the Boy Genius Report wonders out loud why Apple, in its infinite usability, can't create a mechanism where Apps get downloaded free, and then expire after a short period of time unless you decide to buy and keep them.

Quick App: Touch Dial Enables Emoji for the iPhone

Quick App: Touch Dial Enables Emoji for the iPhone

We included this app in our latest Apps for Less post but since Emoji has started to take off with iPhone owners we figured, what the heck... make sure it gets it's very own post so nobody misses it!

You missed the boat with the Emoji hack from a few weeks back? Well here is yet one other chance to grab those Emoji icons without having to jailbreak. If you updated to firmware 2.2.1 and then decided to try the FrostyPlace you were out of luck. The firmware disabled this neat little trick. This is where Touch Dial Emoji enters and will give you the same 461 Emoji icons available on your iPhone.

Amazon to Make Kindle iPhone App for e-Book Reading?

The techeratti love the Kindle -- so what if it's only available in the US, is selling half-as well as the Zune, Apple targeted "reading" in a recent commercial, and Google just optimized their Books service for the iPhone? It's not like Amazon is making an iPhone reader too, is it?

Whoops! D - All Things Digital says Amazon may just be doing exactly that:

Who Knew? Porn Stars Love the iPhone and Twitter Too!

File this under frivolous Friday fun -- or just shake your head, think less of us, and move along. Either way, if celebrities on Twitter (like Ashton and Demi) is the new black, this must be the new... flashing neon hidden away beneath a plain brown wrapper?

WebKit Tells Flash to Kiss Their Apps: CSS Animation and 3D Already in iPhone Safari Browser

WebKit is Apple's open source evolution of the old Linux Konquerer KHTML browser, and it forms the foundation of Safari on both the desktop and the iPhone (and Google Android, Palm Pre, Nokia tablets, etc.). Their Surfin' Safari blog has just announced CSS animation support, but the better news (via MacRumors), is that iPhone (and iPod touch) Safari already supports both CSS animation and 3D.
