Infinity Blade to hit App Store on Dec 9th

Epic Games has announced that the long awaited iOS game Infinity Blade will be in the App Store on December 9th. The game will be available for the iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, as well as third- and fourth-generation iPod Touch devices at a cost of $5.99.

Infinity Blade will be the first full game to utilize Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. Epic Citadel, already available in the App Store, is a short demonstration level showing  the power of the Unreal Engine on iOS devices. If you haven't seen it, it is free and definitely worth a look. [iTunes Link]

Infinity Blade is an RPG (Role Playing Game). You are a Knight in a giant 3D Castle environment, in search of a God-King, battling various enemies to gain new weapons and powers in your quest.

So mark your calendar, this is one great looking game, my iPad is twitching with anticipation, who’s getting this one when it hits?

Glif - iPhone 4 tripod mount and stand

Glif - iPhone 4 tripod mount and stand

A couple of New Yorkers have introduced a very slim and elegant solution for iPhone 4 photographers with their invention of the Glif tripod mount and stand. Glif is an iPhone 4 accessory that works as both a standard tripod mount and kickstand. The minds behind Glif put together a promo video that showcases using the Glif to participate in activities such as hands-free FaceTiming, watching videos, making movies, and using your iPhone as an alarm clock.

The idea for the Glif was first formed when we realized the iPhone 4 is literally the best camera we've ever owned. With the addition of HD video recording and High Dynamic Range photography, it's clear Apple is positioning the iPhone as a very high quality portable camera. But because of its small form factor (and Apple's minimalist design approach) it will never contain a threaded nut for attaching a tripod - standard on almost all photo and video cameras. Solutions for mounting an iPhone to a tripod exist (DIY or otherwise) but they are typically bulky and cumbersome. Our goal was to create something small, simple, and elegant.

And something small, simple, and elegant they did!

Not only did Tom and Dave invent a fantastic accessory, but they have a story that is just as amazing. After designing the Glif, they put it up on Kickstarter in an effort to raise the $10,000 needed to put the Glif into production. The design was so popular, they received almost $140,000 in pledges! Incredible. The Glif is now in full scale production and available to order for $20.

This accessory truly is amazing with such a great story and I can't wait to get my hands on one.

Check out the video after the break!

"Project" Magazine for iPad launching tomorrow [video]

"Project" Magazine for iPad launching tomorrow [video]

Richard Branson's new digital magazine for the iPad, dubbed Project launches tomorrow:

Project is the very first international magazine created specifically for the iPad. It’s a magazine about design, entertainment, technology and entrepreneurs, and is edited by Anthony Noguera, former editor-in-chief of FHM.

The magazine will be purely digital, offering up content in a "living magazine" format that will be updated throughout the month, and plays to the iPad's strengths in delivering an intuitive and asthetically pleasing UI for a completely immersive user-experience unlike any other magazine available. The idea is for users to treat Project as a daily reading experience, instead of a 'read once then throw away' model carried by current magazine offerings.

The video below only shows the magazine's front cover, and we're not yet sure if this animated experience will extend to the actual pages and articles themselves. The app should be available in the App Store tomorrow.

With News Corp. prepping to launch a rumored iPad-only newspaper in the coming months, it will be interesting to see how quickly these new services gain initial adoption.

Any readers looking forward to this new magazine experience? Sound off in the comments below!

How to create an iTunes allowance for your kids

Thinking about creating an iTunes allowance for your kids this holiday season?

iOS 4.2 bugs: Exchange 2003 causing problems?

iOS 4.2 bugs: Exchange 2003 causing problems?

iOS 4 on iPhone and iPad and Exchange 2003 just don't seem to be playing nicely together, especially when it comes to Calendar events -- they mysteriously disappear from ActiveSync, invitation replies refuse to send, and, well, don't get me started.

Both problems are serious for enterprise users. In the first you create or accept and Exchange event invitation, it gets added to your Calendar, and then -- poof! -- it's gone. But only from ActiveSync. If you look in Outlook or OWA (web interface) it's still there. If you're relying on ActiveSync on your iPhone or iPad, you could miss your meeting, call, conference sessions, etc.

TiPb TV 03: iPhone Case vs. Naked

TiPb TV 03: iPhone Case vs. Naked

Should you go around with a naked iPhone or do you need a case? If you do need a case, what kind should you get? That's a question we get asked all the time and it's the topic for the third episode of our new, conversational video podcast, TiPb TV.

Rene and I discuss the pros and cons of bare, barely there, and full on armor for iPhone 4. We also show off several of our favorite cases including the Case Mate Chrome and Ivy, the Incipio Ultra Light, the Golla Bag, the Otterbox Defender, and more.

We take on the argument of case vs. case vs. naked, the cost and benefits of protecting against the bumps and scratches of avoiding bulk. So if you've been trying to decide which type of case is best for you, or if you're daring to go bare with no case on at all, we'll help you make the best choice possible.

Watch along and then leave us a comment and tell us -- which case, if any, do you use?

How's your iPhone 3G performing with iOS 4.2?

How's your iPhone 3G performance with iOS 4.2?survey software

We tested out iPhone 3G on the original GM release of iOS 4.2 and performance seemed far better than iOS 4 though still not as snappy as iOS 3.1.3. Now that you've had your hands on it for a week we were wondering how it performed for you? If iOS 3.1.3 was great and iOS 4 was all but unusable, where does iOS 4.2 fit along the curve? Is it a breakthrough or still a deal breaker?
