Apple Debuts 12 App of Xmas Commercial

Apple has hit pause on their "100,000 apps for just about anything" ads, turned the other cheek on "can your network...?" counter-commercials, and debuted a new, merrier bit of marketing for the holiday season -- 12 Apps for Xmas. Care to sing along?

On the twelfth day of Christmas my iPhone gave to me:

Dilbert Pokes Fun At the (Windows Mobile, Zune) Competition

Paul Thurrott over at the Windows Supersite Blog posted this up in reference to Microsoft's apparent strategy so far when it comes to Windows Mobile and Zune.

Funny.

Steve Jobs like to quote hockey legend Wayne Gretzsky's famous line -- don't skate to where the puck is, skate to where it will be. Let's just hope they remember that, and this comic, and really bring it next year with iPhone 4.0 and the 4th generation iPhone, now that Android 2.x and webOS are on the ice.

iPhone Golla Bags -- Or, iPhone Cases I'd Want on Judgement Day

iPhone Golla Bags -- Or, iPhone Cases I'd Want on Judgement Day

Why did I choose the iPhone Golla Bags for iPhone [$19.99 - iMore Store link] for my first TiPb accessory review? Well, I have tried a wide variety of cases. Being active, I need a case that can withstand life's little brutalities (includes being dropped, kicked, drooled on by a baby, or just plain surviving a day in my purse). So, when choosing my first review item the question that came to mind was: which iPhone case would Sarah Conner use?

Well, she would probably have a triple-lined Kevlar pouch with extra ammo clips, but if she was stuck with stock, I think she -- like me -- would go for the iPhone Golla Bag. Here's why...

Apple-developed PastryKit WebApp Framework Spotted in iPhone User Guide

Daring Fireball has a supersized post up on PastryKit, which looks to be an Apple-developed framework for making HTML, CSS, and JavaScript-based WebApps, and its been quietly lurking for a while now in the online iPhone User Guide when viewed via the iPhone (or Mac or Windows Safari with the browser-agent set to MobileSafari 3x, or just watch the screencasts). What does it do? According to Gruber:

Microsoft Bing's it's Way Onto the iPhone With New Search App

Microsoft Bing's it's Way Onto the iPhone With New Search App

Microsoft has just made Bing [Free - iTunes app] their second iPhone and iPod touch app (no, Office wasn't first -- that's still MIA -- the amazing image-zooming Seadragon was), and it's fairly impressive. It takes a lot of the services Google powers throughout the iPhone and the Google Mobile app and collects them all in one place -- internet text string search, image, movies, a business directory, news, and maps and directions. You can also do Voice Search though without the accelerometer and proximity sensor tricks that make's Google's version so Star Trek.

The Bing app is great looking as well, with large photo backgrounds a la Bing website (and yes, you can tap the rounded square overlays to get factoids). Text string searches are pretty much on par with Google, sometimes returning more sensible results in more logical orders, sometimes not. A simple image search for "theiphoneblog bing", however, returned no results from the Bing app, and exactly what I was looking for in Google. (see below). Likewise, Voice Search tended to crash the app when it went into "thinking" mode. The business and other directory-style information is great, as usual with Bing.

If you're interested in comparing Microsoft's own Windows Mobile version, our buddy Phil from WMExperts has you covered. If you're wondering why Microsoft made Bing for the iPhone, despite Steve Ballmer cracking wise about the iPhone and the internet, Apple's platform enjoys a huge share of the mobile browsing space and Bing wants those eyeballs as much as the just-as-competitive-now Google.

Screenshots after the break!

TiPb Invades PalmCast Live Tonight for Round Robin -- 8pm ET/5pm PT (1am GMT)

Okay so the PreCentral.net PalmCast called again (I'd changed my number, but that darn Synergy just yanked the new one right off of Facebook. Thanks Zuck!) and they're like:

"Hey, iPhony, we have your precious little slab in the Round Robin this week, why don't you come on and watch us torture it with multitasking?"

"Sorry," I said. "I just received the script via email while I was on this call and now I'm tapping through the web-links without having to hang up on you, what were you saying?"

"How great this Google Voice connection is."
