How Apple's Steve Jobs out-Sony'd Sony

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/images/stories/2010/11/Jobsipad.jpg" alt=How Apple's Steve Jobs out-Sony'd Sony" title="How Apple's Steve Jobs out-Sony'd Sony" width="400" height="224" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-43950" />

Interesting article over at SFGate detailing how Steve Jobs studies early Sony product development culture and Zen-like approach to design:

"It was very nearly fetishistic, in fact -- he even had a collection of Sony letterhead and marketing materials," laughs Deutschman. "Sony was a company that Jobs instinctively admired and saw as model from the very beginning. So it's been an interesting transformation over time, to see Apple supplant Sony as the center of the consumer technology universe."

TiPb TV 15: Is Apple TV worth it?

Is the new Apple TV worth $99? Now that it has reached that magic price point it's a question we're being asked more frequently than ever. Being part of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad iOS family means it just works with the devices you already have but being part of Apple means it doesn't work at all with other devices and formats. Does the good outweigh the bad? That's the topic for this episode of TiPb TV!

New Angry Birds game coming in March

12

New Angry Birds game coming in March

The next version of the hit game Angry Birds will be coming to the App Store in March. The new game will not be a true sequel, but will be a licensed game based on the tie in with 20th Century Fox's upcoming animated film Rio.

Rio is a film about rare birds being kidnapped by other birds and is all about them escaping to freedom. Therefore we assume in this game, you will be up against birds rather than the nasty pigs that steal your eggs.

The film Rio is due to be released on April 15th but the new game will be available sometime in March. No exact date yet, but we will let you know as soon as we hear. While you wait patiently, take a look at the video teaser after the break, then let us know what you think in the comments!

3DBoard bringing 3D home screens to iPhone [Jailbreak]

3DBoard bringing 3D home screens to iPhone [Jailbreak]

3DBoard uses the iPhones accelerometer and gyroscope to present a "3D" view of the Springboard/Home Screen icons and it looks pretty nifty. Sure it's pure eye candy and not as functional a tweak as SBSettings or LockInfo, but cool has to count for something, right?

It's coming to Cydia soon and will cost $4. Anyone going to grab it?

Video after the break!

iPhone 4 "glassgate" -- Sue!

iPhone 4 "glassgate" -- Sue!

California resident Donald LeBuhn has filed a class action lawsuit against Apple after, he claims, his daughter dropped his almost new iPhone 4 from 3 feet and the glass shattered. Yes, "glassgate" is back in the news:

LeBuhn's beef starts with the fact that Apple markets the strength of the iPhone 4 glass as "20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic," and is "ultradurable" and made of the same material as the "glass used in helicopters and high-speed trains."

This, LeBuhn claims, is all part of Apple's ruse.

Adobe Flash Packager to support iPad apps, pinch-to-zoom?

Japanese blog Macotakara claims that Adobe is about to update their Flash Packager soon so that developers will be able to cross-compile Flash apps for iPad as well as iPhone. (This following a long battle between Apple and Adobe that ended when Apple relaxed its cross platform compiler restrictions back in September of last year.)

Supposedly Adobe's next update for Packager will include not only support for the iPad but also more gestures such as pinch-to-zoom as well.
