Will supply and pricing allow that by the summer? If it does, it also means the dual-slotted iPod touch could hit a whopping 64GB by its next refresh cycle in the fall.

Psst! Hey, You! iPhone Developer! Wanna Scam Some Apple Bucks?

While in the old days, this would no doubt have come from Creep McShady in a trench coat around the corner of some noir-esque alley, now its online fraudsters who've gamed Apple's iTunes gift certificate generation algorithms, unable to sell directly due to fear of Apple tracing the accounts, who've found a new target for their schemes.

Review: Case-Mate Barely There Case for iPhone 3G

The Case-Mate Barely There case for the iPhone 3G, available for $19.95 from the TiPb iPhone Store, is designed to accomplish several things:

Apple Sued Over Multi-Touch Patents
