UPDATED: Skype for iPhone Now Available! (Everywhere but Canada!)

UPDATE: Skype seems to be live now in the US App Store [iTunes Link]. If you find it in any other App Store's please let us know in the comments. [Thanks daveizzle for the tip!]

UPDATE 2: According to CBC News, Skype will NOT be available in Canada (though it will be everywhere else). The reason, a patent-license restrictions on Skype's end that they won't discuss.

Are Cheap Apps Costing the iPhone Great Games?

We've talked about this several times before on TiPb, but Jeremy Horwitz over at iLounge takes an interesting journey via the game Peggle, what it's release looks like for the Nintendo DS at $30, how retail sales prices break down, and what it might mean for iPhone gamers if they're forced by market conditions to give us a barer-boned $5 version.

Monday Fun Fantasy: Apple MacBook Mini

What If: RIM Released BlackBerry Connect for the iPhone?!

It's WWDC 2009. Steve or Phil or Scott or Joz or whomever is handling the heavy lifting for the iPhone 3.0 section and release-date announcement smiles and says -- "There's one more thing...

i.TV Makes Nice With Comcast, Shakes Up Advertising

It's interesting to see how developers try to monetize their work in the iTunes App Store. With the downward pressure towards $0.99 or free apps, many turn to advertising to make up the difference, but users are getting increasingly oblivious to advertising at the same time.

Cheese on bread, I find the concept of this game irie enough, though the lack of articulation in the eponymous character... nothing a go so. Shouldn't a Rasta Monkey be a wee bit easier now star?

Rasta Monkey is set in the jungle of Jamdown. The gameplay is focused on a happy Rastafarian monkey who swings around and grabs onto branches to move his way through different jungle environments. Using monkey-swinging skills, players must snag some delicious fruit along the way to score points and move to different levels.
