Apple Spotlight Turns to Notebooks: iPhone Left in the Dark

Apple Spotlight Turns to Notebooks: iPhone Left in the Dark

No love from Apple for the iPhone today, despite glass trackpads, with multi-touch being introduced into the MacBook line. We have a transcript of our full meta-live blog coverage available now if you want the details, but the broad strokes are all in aluminum and black. The long-standing rumors mostly came true, with design unified around the current iMac model -- with a gorgeous new 24" Cinema Display being a near kissing-cousin to last year's desktop rev.

15" MacBook Pro and MacBook's available now-ish. Air's to follow soon (November?). Rumor has it there are issues with the 17", so we may only see those later.

MacBooks To Have Blackberry Storm-style "Touch Click" Pad?

MacBooks To Have Blackberry Storm-style "Touch Click" Pad?

RIM calls it "ClickThrough" and introduced their version with the Blackberry Storm. While we here at TiPb were initially dubious, Crackberry.com was apparently right about the Storm as the Big Sites loved it quite a bit. Still, we never saw Apple adopting it, and it's scroll-click metaphor, to the iPhone, but it looks like they may have already put a similar concept to use in the new MacBooks set to be announced today. Daring Fireball has the spoiler alert:

They say something so outrageous you just have to respond, to retort, to -- quite frankly -- set them straight. You grab your iPhone, hit the Favorite for Phone Different Feedback and...

You get the soothing tones of the answer-bot, asking just what extension you're trying to reach... What extension?! D'oh! Rantus Interuptus!

Next time you want to give our humble hosts (or anyone else) a quick call, save yourself some frustration and add the extension right into your iPhone contact info!

Want Google Ads Optimized For Your iPhone?

Want Google Ads Optimized For Your iPhone?

When Apple launched the iPhone, they teased a "breakthrough internet device" and promised us "just the internet" in our pocket. Increasingly, the internet is becoming synonymous with Google, and how does Google make it's Microsoft-rivaling money again?

No, not search. Advertising! And now, everyone's favorite online advertiser is getting ready to better serve up their ads on the iPhone. With MobileSafari's monstrous browser share, who couldn't see this one coming?

Says Google (via Ars Technica):

iPhone App Avalanche 13: Crazy Pumpkin, iDayDream, i.TV and Babe-O-Meter!

iPhone App Avalanche 13: Crazy Pumpkin, iDayDream, i.TV and Babe-O-Meter!

It's time for App Avalanche 13, and this week we're taking a look at the Entertainment category in the App Store and at what's Good, Better, Best, and, of course, the CrApp. There's at least 26 (!) pages of Entertainment apps and counting. After exhaustive research by our highly-trained TiPb staff (please note: author taking massive liberties with the truth here; likely exaggerating), these apps have been hand-picked for YOU. Given that this is unlucky Avalanche 13, written on the 13th, I'm sure the author of the CrApp is feeling quite unlucky for being featured here!

Buh Bye SDK NDA - Hello iPhone Developalooza!

No sooner did Apple drop the iPhone SDK Non-Disclosure Agreement (fondly referred to as the [Redacted] NDA among aficionados, as it forbade developers discussing the topic even among themselves), then the floodgates of knowledge burst open. Cases in point:

According to TUAW, iPhone coder extraordinaire Erica Sadun's The iPhone Developer's Cookbook is already available in PDF form from informIT (along with code samples!):
