Speaking of Facebook, it looks like they've joined the growing list of sites that are now providing HTML5 video for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad compatible playback. UPDATE: As noted in the comments, Faceboo
Facebook recently announced some huge changes to how, where, and perhaps even why they operate -- and it effects every Facebook users' privacy. Short version: Facebook is "building the social web" by sharing your and your friends' information with more apps, for longer, and via more places outside Facebook than ever before and they're opting you into it by default.
If you're the footloose and Facebook-free sort who lives every moment online with little or no care about who knows what about you, then this likely doesn't effect you one bit.

Exercising a search warrant last Friday, members of California's Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team seized evidence in the ongoing investigation into the iPhone HD/iPhone 4G that wound up outside of Apple's control and plastered all over the internet last week.
Gizmodo has the full account up, including the warrant, a response from Gawker legal, and their account of the events.
Dilbert's author, Scott Adams, decided to poke a little fun at the whole iPhone HD/iPhone 4G incident by drafting up 2 strips of goodness that, because of the slow pace of newspaper publication, will only ever be seen on the web. Check them out.
Spring has sprung and what better way to celebrate the great driving weather than teaming up with TeleNav to give away five (5) 1-year subscriptions to AT&T Navigator (for those of you in the US) or Rogers Navigator (for those of you in Canada).
Want? Great, all you have to do is head on over to Facebook and:
How do you use your iPhone/iPad as a remote control, and what do you use it to control?
When Apple introduced the iPhone, they also introduced Remote, and app that you could use to control iTunes or your Apple TV. Since then a variety of other, more wide-ranging remote control apps have become available in the iTunes App Store for controlling media, entire computers, and even complete household automation.
With the introduction of the iPad, there's even 9.7" of screen real estate to fill all your controlling needs.

While the Apple TV (and even the lowly, lambasted Zune!) has had Wi-Fi sync for a while now, Apple hasn't seen fit to break the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad free of their iTunes tether, so developer Greg Hughes has decided to do it for them -- and submit it to the App Store.
Based on the video it looks like once a pairing is setup between your iPhone and iTunes you're good to go. And that's where this whole story might just come off the rails -- if Hughes is using anything other than public APIs, and if Apple even allows other apps to interact with iTunes on the desktop. Hey, they could even reject it on general usability grounds -- that aforementioned Apple TV and Zune need to be plugged in anyway to handle the power-drain of Wi-Fi sync, which takes some of the luster off, and even 802.11n Wi-Fi is slow compared to USB.
So, could this app pull an Opera Mini and get in, or it will it get slammed with the rejection hammer and leave us waiting for a cloud-based iTunes.com announcement from Apple before our iPhones go wire-free?
