OnLive Streaming Gaming Shows off iPhone Use

OnLive Streaming Gaming Shows off iPhone Use

As part of OnLive's intent to stream you your Crysis Wars over the internet (rather than on physical media like a DVD or Blu Ray), they've put together a 48 minute demo, including the use of their companion iPhone app. The iPhone part starts at 19:30 in, and they say latency over current 3G networks is still too high, but WiFi isn't bad (though the controls are "kinda funky").

The more interesting part of the iPhone experience, they claim, is the spectating stuff. We'd disagree. But what do you think? Do you want to get your video games streaming from a cloud server, rented like streaming Netflix rather than owned like traditional media? Let us know!

(Note: no iPhone friendly video, but we embedded the Viddler version, on the frame where the iPhone talk starts, below the fold).

Case-Mate Barely There Chrome Case for the iPhone 3G

Case-Mate Barely There Chrome Case for the iPhone 3G

Say hello to the Case-Mate Barely There Chrome Case for the iPhone [$19.95 iMore Store Link]. It's a streamlined case with a chrome outer shell and a mirrored screen protector. And it's the hottest iPhone case to come around in a while.

If you haven’t already bought a gift for that special man/woman in your life, then just pick this one up. The perfectly mirrored surface is beautifully complimented by the gleaming chrome case. Yes, if Hercules had had this case he would have been able to defeat Medusa and make sure his hair still looked good. The back of the case also has a “beauty spot” for your apple icon (a hole in the case so you can see the apple logo). This case is such a stunner that it got a gasp of approval from one of my more difficult to please male friends.

Return of the 8GB iPhone 3GS Rumors

Return of the 8GB iPhone 3GS Rumors

Could an 8GB iPhone 3GS replace the 8GB iPhone 3G Apple currently offers as it's ahem bargain-basement smartphone? The $99 iPhone 3G was one of the big stories of 2009, competing against otherwise anemic Pearls and Qs at that price point. An 8GB 3GS at $99 (or lower?) has been rumored before. Now Gizmodo says it could be immanent:

Safety Light for iPhone, or Can the Flashlight App be Redeemed?

Safety Light for iPhone, or Can the Flashlight App be Redeemed?

Safety Light ($0.99 - iTunes link) riddles us this -- can one of the App Store's most maligned categories, the flashlight app, be redeemed by one of the iPhone's premiere developers?

Along with fart apps and tip calculators, there's little that's been derided more than the humble "lets make a white screen and charge $1 for it" flashlight app. With Safety Light, the Iconfactory's Craig Hockenberry, creator of Twitterrific, adds function to the flash.

  • Bright flashlight
  • Colored lighting effects
  • Disco mode!
  • SOS emergency flash

Like many, I've used the iPhone to light my way on more than one occasion, but Safety Light is the first time I've gotten all official (read: bought a flashlight app) for the purpose. But I'm a sucker for audacious design and development.

If you try it, let us know what you think!

Reportage Twitter "Radio Tuner" Version 1.5

Reportage Twitter "Radio Tuner" Version 1.5

iPhone Twitter clients are best in class, point finale, but no one client can be great at everything which is why specialty Twitter apps like Reportage 1.5 [$1.99 - iTunes link] can be so valuable.

While the original Reportage impressed by virtue of concept alone, it had a few rough edges overall. Reportage 1.5 addresses those, baking in good browsing and replying to go along with the great reading.

If you ever find yourself getting lost in the timeline, following too many people who make too many tweets, Reportage and its "radio tuner" metaphor can be a great way to find just what you're looking for. If you check it out, let us know what you think.

Screen shots after the break!
