Steve Jobs Tells iPodRip to Change the Name -- Not a Big Deal

Steve Jobs sent a curt reply to The Little App Factory, telling them it was not a big deal for them to change their Apple trademark-infringing, iPodRip product name.

Rewind: iPodRip was software designed to pull media off an iPod (no, not for piracy, but to recover files in the event you lost them on the host machine). Apple's lawyers complained. The Little App Factory's John Devor wrote a plea for help. Jobs responded in typical fashion.

Long story shorter: iPodRip has been renamed iRip.

Sony Online Service to Take on iTunes

Sony Online Service to Take on iTunes

Sony is planning to launch their answer to iTunes, offering music, movies, books, mobile apps, and more... sometime in the future. No, they haven't announced a date yet, but given their portfolio of PS3, PSP, Sony Reader, and how more and more is being integrated into their Bravia televisions, while the MP3 player market is dwindling, convergent devices are on the rise. (Of course, they'll need to fix their smartphone offerings and get them integrated into their own platform as well --hello PSPhone, can you get to that already?)

Opera Mobile 10 Beta for Windows Mobile vs. iPhone 3G Safari -- Browser Battle

Opera Mobile 10 Beta for Windows Mobile vs. iPhone 3G Safari -- Browser Battle

Our good friend Phil over at sibling site WMExperts got his geeky hands on Opera Mobile 10 beta for Windows Mobile and did what any self-respecting editor would do -- took it one on one with the great one -- Safari. Well, technically Safari running on last year's slower hardware, the iPhone 3G (as opposed to the much faster iPhone 3GS), but it's not a final build of. The results?

Opera Mobile 10 beta isn't quite as good as Safari on iPhone 3G, but it's getting there. Again, not iPhone 3GS, but not a final build of

Mythical iTablet Suffering Mythical Delays Due to Addition of Expensive OLED Screen?

Mythical iTablet Suffering Mythical Delays Due to Addition of Expensive OLED Screen?

Apple has yet to announce an iTablet, which is good because the supposed universe dent'er is supposedly suffering a supposed "delay" -- getting pushed back from early to late 2010 so that Apple can supposedly add a supposedly expensive, LG-crafted OLED (organic light emitting diode) screen to the mythical mix.

At 9.7 inches, it would cost $500 for the panel, and bump the entire kit up to a $1500 or $1700 price point. So much for the imaginary device filling a slot between the sub-$500 iPod touch/iPhone and the $1000 MacBook, right?

TomTom Updates App to Include 1st Gen iPhone and iPod touch GPS Support

TomTom has released a rather significant update to their $99 iPhone Turn-by-Turn GPS application [iTunes Link]. It seems as if they had second thoughts about omitting first generation iPhone (and iPod touch) devices along side the TomTom car kit. It was only last month that TomTom officially stated the kit would not enable GPS with the original iPhone or iPod touch. My how quickly things change, perhaps the release of the free Google Navigation application had something to do with it...
