Apple has upped the stakes in their look-and-feel "copy cat" lawsuit against Samsung, taking the complaint from 38 to 63 pages, and now accusing Samsung of "products that blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple's products to capitalize on Apple's success." According to FOSS Patents, Apple goes so far as to quote the media to help set up its case:

JOYSTICK-IT brings a physical joystick to your iPad for a better gaming experience [video]

JOYSTICK-IT brings a physical joystick to your iPad for a better gaming experience [video]

JOYSTICK-IT is a joystick for your iPad that aims to replace the clumsy on-screen virtual joysticks found in lots of iPad games. If you struggle with on-screen joysticks (I certainly do), this could be another option to consider. The JOYSTICK-IT is made from lightweight solid milled aluminium and certainly looks the part.

All you need to do is load your game of choice and place the JOYSTICK-IT over the virtual joystick and it will stick to the glass. You can then use it in place of the on-screen joystick and hopefully rack up some new high scores and achievements!

The JOYSTICK-IT is available now at a cost of $24.99 for one or as a twin pack at $39.99. As with all of these type of accessories, it would be best to check that it will work correctly with the games you intend to use it with before parting with your money!

Take a look at the video after the break; do any of our readers fancy picking one of these up? Let us know in the comments!

Daily Tip: How to stumble back to the right hotel room when you're traveling

If you're a frequent traveler and need to know how to get back to the right hotel room at night, this is a very simple, but also very handy tip. Lets set the scene: you check into another hotel on your travels and you're given a plastic key card as well a small piece of card with your room details printed on it.

The first thing you do when you go out later, is pick up the plastic keycard but leave the card with all the details on in your room. When you return later in the evening, exhausted from the business meeting or intoxicated from the on expenses alcohol splurge, you have forgotten your hotel room number. As it is never printed on the programmable plastic keycards, you're in a bit of trouble.

Read on after the break for our great solution to this dilemma!

    Are Apple's hardware releases increasingly tied to software?

    We've known for a while now that iPhone 5 won't be coming out this month, as it has for the last four years, but this fall, when iOS 5 is also scheduled to ship. Whether one delayed the other, or factors such as Verizon contracts, component shortages, engineering hours, or some combination of factors we may never know, but now rumors suggest new Macs are similarly on hold, this time waiting on OS X Lion before they ship.

    iPhone patent applications reveal better Find My iPhone, social matching, and a way to stop users from recording concerts(?!) [Patent Roundup]

    iPhone patent applications reveal better Find My iPhone, social matching, and a way to stop users from recording concerts(?!) [Patent Roundup]

    A few interesting patent applications from Apple have recently surfaced, showing they have some bold ideas surrounding Find My iPhone, social-matching, and a way to lock the camera so we can't make bootleg concert recordings and plaster them on YouTube (?!).

    Reminder: Apple, like any big company, routinely patents just about anything and everything they dream up, and there's no way to know when, or if, they'll use any them in actual, shipping products. Still, it's interesting to see what they're working on deep inside the secret Cupertino labs...

    Jailbreak innovation: still the future of iOS

    At WWDC 2011 Apple once again "borrowed" a lot of great ideas from the Jailbreak community and gave them to iOS 5, including lock screen info, notifications, WiFi sync, volume buttons to take pictures, and a lot more. That's not a bad thing -- I even asked them to do exactly that this year. Whether you jailbreak or not, whether you realize it or not, the jailbreak community benefits all iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users -- pure and jailbreak alike.

    Follow along to find out why.

    If you were one of our many readers waiting for Apple's Back to School promotion to kick off so you could grab a new MacBook or iMac and get a free iPod touch along with it, you're in for some disappointment. Instead of a free iPod touch like last year](http://www.imore.com/2010/05/27/apple-education-promo-free-ipod-touch/), this year Apple is offering a $100 iTunes gift certificate to cap off your educational purchase.

    Twitter loses Reportage for iPhone

    Twitter loses Reportage for iPhone

    Reportage was WhereCloud's insanely creative iPhone Twitter app that let users "tune in" to other users' timeline -- like a radio station for tweets. I say was because Twitter's swerve away from the developer friendliness that helped them build their platform and their rapid acceleration into ownership plays that may -- or may not -- help them ensure its future has led WhereCloud to stop development.

    Martin Dufort, who TiPb interviewed as part of our Developer Spotlight series two weeks ago, explains it was the the culmination of 4 changes by Twitter that led to his company's decision:
