Slacker Personal Radio for iPhone Now Available in Canada

Slacker Personal Radio for iPhone Now Available in Canada

Slacker Personal Radio [Free - iTunes link] is now available in the Canadian App Store. While our friend's at CrackBerry.com got to enjoy the news a little sooner, thanks to Apple's currently speedier App approval process and iLounge's spot, TiPb didn't have to wait as long as we feared either.

As far as we know, this is the first streaming internet radio service available to Canadian iPhone users (blame our nightmarish licensing) and it includes some nice local content:

  • Canadian Rock
  • Canadian Country
  • Canadian Today's Hits

Slacker also tells TiPb that the 2.0 version is coming soon, and will provide station caching for iPhone and iPod touch. Can't. Wait.

Note: While the app is free for the first 30 days, a $5/month Slacker Plus subscription turns off the ads, turns on unlimited skips, and otherwise makes the service much more enjoyable and functional thereafter. More Plus features, after the break...

One small step for the internet, one giant leap for Canadian music.

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!

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.
