Steve Jobs happy Intel bought Infineon WSL?

Fox, ABC to offer $0.99 iTunes rentals, CBS, NBC to keep heads buried in sand?

Fox, ABC to offer $0.99 iTunes rentals, CBS, NBC to keep heads buried in sand?

"People familiar with the situation" (yes, them again) have told the Wall Street Journal that both Fox and ABC are good to go on $0.99 iTunes TV show rentals, and will be announced later today at Apple's special music event. Since ABC is owned by Disney, whose largest shareholder is Steve Jobs, their getting on board isn't a huge surprise. Likewise, Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox, introduced Jobs at D8 and is all up in Apple rescuing print media (like the Wall Street Journal) and TV alike.

Do you still regularly sync your iPhone with iTunes?

Tomorrow at their annual special music event, Apple might announce a new version of iTunes (iTunes X?) -- maybe with $0.99 TV rentals or streaming cloud music -- and thinking about that made me realize I hardly if ever sync my iPhone with iTunes anymore.

Speck Fitted Case for iPad - accessory review

Speck Fitted Case for iPad - accessory review

The Speck Fitted Case for iPad is a hard shell case with a soft fabric backing. It snaps together from two parts -- the plain black bezel that wraps around the top and outlines the ports, and the textured, pink and black plaid that covers the back plate.

Two part cases are typically more secure but more of a pain to put on and take off. Both of those are true for the Speck Fitted Case, which means it's best suited for people who like to put a case on and leave it on. I'm usually so not that type of person (my job here at TiPb doesn't let me be!) but I like this case so much it's stayed on way longer than I originally expected. I just really like it.

Dodonpachi Resurrection for iPhone - app review

Dodonpachi Resurrection for iPhone - app review

Do you like old-school shooters? If so, Dodonpachi Resurrection is the game for you! Cave has brought out another awesome shooter on the iPhone (the first being Espgaluda II).

There are two game modes in DoDonPachi. The first is iPhone mode which is a great way to jump in and play. It uses a hit variable to determine the strength of your weapons (the slider is indicated in the top right) and has an interactive hypermode to unleash the ultimate destruction on your enemies. The other mode is Arcade. This mode has you pick the fighter style you want and requires a bit more strategy while playing since you don't have the freedom you have in iPhone mode. You can also configure how much screen is displayed while playing (I am partial to large so I see as much of the screen as I can) as well as button placement for attacking enemy ships.

iTunes song previews doubling to 60 seconds?

At their annual special music event tomorrow, could Steve Jobs announce that Apple's iTunes song previews are doubling to 60 seconds? That's what CNET is hearing rumored:

Currently, iTunes offers 30-second snippets of songs, a feature designed to give users a taste of the music to help them decide whether they like it enough to buy. Some users have long complained that half a minute isn't enough time to really hear a song.
