Inventor of Cell Phone Gave iPhone to Grandson, Tweets on Droid?!

No doubt a genius, but perhaps also Woz-centric (think eccentric but with technology founding stripes), cell phone inventor Martin Cooper always likes to have the latest and greatest mobile device on the planet. Ish, according C-SPAN:

Right now I'm using the Droid, because I want to get some experience with the Android operating system, and I, so far have some favorable results.

New iPad Gestures in iPhone SDK 3.2

New iPad Gestures in iPhone SDK 3.2

9to5Mac continues its tradition of tearing through new iPhone 3.2 SDK for iPad betas, this time digging into beta 4 and finding:

In the gestures folder, you'll see two new types of commands (3Tap.plist and LongPress.plist) that are certainly not implemented in the current 3.1 iPhone SDK.

No idea what these mean yet, but if you were Apple, what would you use the triple tap and long press for? (Aside from morse code!)

No TiPb Live Tonight, More GDC Coverage to Come!

Apologies everyone but there won't be a TiPb Live! tonight due to me being at GDC 2010, Chad being sick, and Mickey being horribly disappointed in the both of us.

We'll try to make it up to you with some more great GDC coverage, however. I've shot tons of video for TiPb Apps and will be posting it up in the feed asap. If you're hungry for instant content, I'm posting notes over on Twitter. Otherwise hang tight, we'll have a round up later this week.

iTunes LP was Record Labels' Idea?

iTunes LP was Record Labels' Idea?

GigaOm is reporting that, contrary to speculation that Steve Jobs wanted to return us to a more analog time when we bought new albums and sank back for ours drinking in every liner note and detail, iTunes LP was actually the record labels' idea:

I’m told by an industry source who preferred to remain anonymous that iTunes LP wasn’t Apple’s idea in the first place. Rather, it’s the result of the same renegotiations between Apple and the major record labels that yielded DRM-free songs and flexible pricing early last year, a concession by Cupertino to make a gesture in favor of album sales as consumers increasingly show a preference for digital singles.

TiPb Apps 4.3: Street Fighter IV for iPhone (GDC 2010)

TiPb Apps 4.3: Street Fighter IV for iPhone (GDC 2010)

Live from GDC 2010 Rene talks to Tezuka-san, Street Fighter IV [$9.99 - iTunes link] iPhone producer for Capcom (via translator) about making Street Fighter for the iPhone and iPod touch, getting the controls right, and whether or not we might see Street Fighter for the iPad.

Tezuka-san points out how Capcom decided to make the controls very customizable, allowing users to choose whether they want the button low down, in the middle, or high up, and set the level of transparency. This means you can hold the iPhone or iPod touch anyway you like and set up the controls just the way you like.

I had a chance to play it just before release and while I got my butt kicked in multiplayer, the game looked gorgeous and handled very well. I could pull off what few moves I remembered from my childhood in the arcade, and I could resort to button (er... screen) mashing when all else failed. (Yes, just like my childhood in the arcade.)

For the iPad, they're going to sit down and figure out how the controls work and what the experience is like on that screen with that form factor. If it makes sense, they'll do it. If not, there are other Capcom games that certainly might. It's all about the quality of the end product for them.

Watch along after the break!
