Apple will outsource production of the 22-inch model to Quanta, with Taiwan-based Sintek Photronic supplying the touchscreen panels

Workers on Strike at Apple iPhone Touch-screen Supplier

Workers on Strike at Apple iPhone Touch-screen Supplier

The iPhone more than the sum of its many parts, but when the part in question is the touch-screen itself, and workers at the manufacturer's Suzhou, China facility go on strike, we have to wonder what that will do for supplies in the medium term?

More than 2,000 workers gathered and damaged facilities and vehicles after rumors that the factory may not pay a planned bonus for 2009, the [21st Century Business Herald] said, citing the statement. The plant belongs to Taiwan-based Wintek Corp., the world’s biggest touch-screen maker for mobile phones.

Otterbox Commuter, Commuter TL for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

Otterbox Commuter, Commuter TL for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

If in previous years you found yourself thinking Otterbox's tank-style Defender was too much armor, and their Impact just not quite tank-like enough, at CES 2010 they showed TiPb a middle-ground that some of you might find just right -- the Commuter series.

In both regular and TL (translucent, a reference to the clear strip across the back) versions, they're aiming it squarely at the urban warrior who wants as much protection as possible while still maintaining a slim, pocketable profile.

Check it out on video, after the break!

Cocoon Grid-It and Fastback -- TiPb @ CES 2010

At CES 2010, Cocoon Innovations went from dipping a toe into iPhone waters with their new, windowed, messenger-style netbook bag to diving straight in with the secret-in-the-turtleshell Fastback cases.

The netbook case has a transparent pocket to showoff your iPhone or iPod touch, and inside features their really interesting looking Grid-It organizer, which can also safely and snuggly stow your iPhone or iPod inside.

The Fastback is an iPhone case that opens in the back to reveal an ample amount of storage for a headset, cards, etc.

Case-Mate Go Bare for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

After being Barely There last year, at CES 2010 TiPb wanted to know how much slimmer Case-Mate could go -- turns out they could go Bare. You read that right, one of the big products on display for Case-Mate in 2010 was their entry into the iPhone skin market, and the twist is their version doesn't require any application liquid, you just peel and apply.

Video of the skin being applied, after the break. And if you're the guy who made a living selling the tiny little squirt bottles, please don't comment spam us -- we're just the messenger....

How-to Make an iTunes LP for Your Indie Band

theAppleBlog has put together a nicely detailed, step-by-step how-to for creating your very own -- or your indie band's own -- iTunes LP.

The iTunes LP is the new format Apple has been pushing in iTunes. It’s more like a DVD than anything else. You have menus, music, photos, liner notes and videos. Since this is such a fresh format, not many albums are available in it yet. The good news is, you can make your own.

Apple Returns Fire, Requests US Import Ban on Nokia Phones

Previously, on Patent Wars, Nokia escalated their lawsuit against Apple by requesting a US import ban on virtually every product Apple makes with the International Trade Commission (ITC), and now Apple has responded in kind against Nokia phones.

Yes, phasers and disruptor fire is criss-crossing the legal heavens and photo torpedos are exploding in the silence of judicial space.

Microsoft Windows Phone HTC Touch Pro2 and HTC HD2 Review from an iPhone Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

Microsoft Windows Phone HTC Touch Pro2 and HTC HD2 Review from an iPhone Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

Windows Phone is only slightly better off in this year's Smartphone Round Robin than Palm was last year -- like we substituted in the WinMo Treo Pro for the aging PalmOS in 2008, we're using two heavily HTC-skinned devices as WMExperts entries in 2009 -- the HTC Touch Pro2 and massive HTC HD2.

And I'm melancholy about that, because I kind of liked the unabashedly Windows Mobile tweaky, geeky Treo Pro last year, and was hoping to see a pure Microsoft Windows Mobile 7 device this year. Scrappy, underfunded Palm was able to deliver webOS after all, Google went Android 2.0, and Apple went iPhone 3.0. Instead we got Windows Mobile 6.5, which was decidedly bashed, and the aforementioned HTC Sense UI/TouchFlo shellacked over it -- a UI so opaque I think users might have trouble distinguishing HTC's Windows Phone devices from their Android ones going forward.

But those are the WinPhos we were dealt, and they're certainly tremendous in their own rights. To help me make sense of them (no pun intended), Phil Nickinson went over the finer points for me and the WMExperts Forum members really helped me out.

(And just a reminder, every day you post on that WMExperts thread, or any of the official Round Robin threads, is another day you're entered to win one of six (6!) new smartphones!)

Okay, enough preamble, it's time for the review... after the break!

What's in Store for the iPhone and iPod touch at Macworld 2010

Macworld 2010 is a reinvention, both for the Mac -- and iPhone/iPod community -- and the event itself. With Apple no longer attending any trade shows, the folks at Macworld are forced, and blessed to have to draw back on what made them so special to begin with -- that aforementioned community.
