Not sure when this went live, or how I missed seeing it the moment it did, but the snippet of video on Trism that Apple showed off in their iPhone 3.0 Sneak Peek Event is up in full on Apple's developer site, and it's brought along some friends. The full list includes:
Seriously, I'm beginning to heart RIM's co-CEOs almost as much as I heart Steve Ballmer. Give the mobilemen a venue and a mic, and we get blog gold each and every time. Chronology will help context here:
THERE’S a reason that R.I.M. is averse to the iPhone’s glass pad. “I couldn’t type on it and I still can’t type on it, and a lot of my friends can’t type on it,” says Mike Lazaridis, R.I.M.’s co-chief executive and technological visionary. “It’s hard to type on a piece of glass.”
MacRumors has dug up an interesting Apple patent application that would try to mitigate the difficulty associated with tapping while moving (i.e. jogging, back seat of cab, etc.) by dynamically increasing the size of targets in the user interface when it detects jerky motion.
Will we ever see it in an actual iPhone? Who knows. Would it be helpful if, while you're trying to add a potential dates new contact info at the social while getting your krump on, the icons and input areas kept zooming up on you?
iPhone Live! hits the nets again tonight (Wednesday, April 15) at 8pm EDT/5pm PDT.
Pre-show will start about 10 min. before if you want to drop by early. With iPhone 3.0 Beta 3 being released yesterday, more next gen iPhone rumors still hitting daily, and all sorts of other news, App, carrier, and Steve Jobs related, it looks to be a jam-packed show.
Oh, and Jeremy, our very own Bad Ash, might just be making his Live! debut as well.
Apple Insider, covering Piper Jaffray's favorite Apple analyst, Gene Munster, passes along:
Sales of 22 iPhones per stores is down from 28 iPhones per store during November, which suggests a 21 percent decline in sales sequentially compared to the Street's view of a 24 percent drop.

It must be music day here at TiPb. Sonos, which we reviewed late last year, just let us know that they've updated their Sonos Controller App for the iPhone, adding a few nifty features which, when combined with iTunes music now being completely DRM-free, adds a whole heap of functionality to an already automagic system:
You're Smule and you've already released the innovative and acclaimed Ocarina app for the iPhone. What do you do for an encore? Why a Leaf Trombone, of course, a "massively multi-player musical game for the iPhone and iPod touch", now available for $0.99 via the iTunes App Store.
