The PSPgo is Sony's answer to the iPhone in a post-App Store world, but unfortunately it looks like charging more for poorly ported games is the question. Gizmodo explains the obvious -- to everyone but Sony -- problem:
The Woolworths department store chain in Australia is being taken to court by Apple due to their new logo... looking too much like Apple's. Apple is required by law to defend their trademarks, lest they lose them, and they're concerned Woolworth may sell computers (or smartphones?) under the new, Apple-esque logo.
If the stylized W in Woolworths' logo didn't have that little leaf on top, we'd think Apple was a little over-litigious. As it is, we're not sure why the W needs a leaf, or if it looks more like an Apple than the "Great Pumpkin" from Charlie Brown (maybe Peanuts can sue as well?)
Gokivo [$4.99 - iTunes link] is the next GPS application in the increasingly long list of iPhone GPS turn-by-turn apps. First off, when I started the app, I got a little confused because it looks almost exactly like Google Maps (in fact, it may literally be the same). But the interface expands beyond Google Maps. When you put in a term for searching, you get an expanded list of options - including using local Yahoo lists, categories, your contact list, etc.
Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch) related, they're fair game.
So who's on deck this week and what are our picks? Find out after the break!
It was just one day ago we mentioned that a new PwnageTool was on the horizon and for those iPhone 3GS owners who stayed on 3.0, your patience has paid off as the latest PwnageTool for Mac OS X has been release by the Dev-Team. If you couldn't wait and you updated your iPhone 3GS to 3.1 via iTunes, you have a slight problem as you will not be able to jailbreak.
Man goes into Apple Store for help with iPhone. Man gets frustrated with iPhone. Man threatens to shoot iPhone if it doesn't start working. Man draws attention to previously concealed weapon. Apple Store techie tells manager. Manger calls police. Police arrive. Police arrest man.
UPDATE: Looks like Engadget managed to score the mouse and keyboard diagrams from the FCC filings before Apple had them yanked. They look the same from what little outline is shown, though the new keyboard is a tad smaller.
Is Apple on the verge of releasing a new, multi-touch enabled mouse for their Mac line that harnesses the technology debuted in the iPhone? That's what AppleInsider is claiming.
