Zero Punctuation on iPhone games [NSFW video]

Zero Punctuation takes a break from lambasting the latest console games for a brief look at Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, Fruit Ninja and a few other popular iPhone titles. If you're familiar with Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw's style, then you know you're in for incredibly not-safe-for-work (NSFW) language and graphic cartoon subject matter. Be warned.

Keep your gloves on but still use your iOS device with GloveTips [video]

Keep your gloves on but still use your iOS device with GloveTips [video]

You can imagine the scenario, you are out in the freezing winter weather, your iPhone rings and you can’t answer it; you can if you remove your gloves or use your nose but that is not a great solution. Well GloveTips may have the answer.

GloveTips are small dime sized flexible disks that you mount on your gloves. Each disk has special thread stitched in the center that will interact with capacitive touchscreen devices when you wear your glove.

Yes you can already buy purpose made gloves that you can use with your iPhone. The main difference is that you can use these with your own gloves. The videos after the break show how well GloveTips appear to work and also how they are fitted to your gloves. Not sure how well GloveTips will hold up if your gloves get wet or need washing.

GloveTips are available now at a price $19.99 for a pack of 3. Can you see yourself using this solution? Let us know in the comments.

It will be available only outside the UK, where the BBC is not allowed to charge for its content, and marks a new stage in the broadcaster’s move to exploit its content around the world.

360 Panorama for iPhone just issued a large update to their popular panorama app that uses the built-in gyroscope feature. This essentially allows you to capture more accurate panoramic photos much easier. It can take a bit longer than a standard stitching app but the overall quality seems to be better. As iPhone photography becomes even more prominent and mainstream, good photography apps tend to do well. 360 Panorama is definitely an app to check out if you enjoy editing and taking photos on your iPhone.

Verizon launches LTE network (but don't hold your breath for iPhone 4G)

Verizon has officially launched their 4G LTE network with a website, press release... but no phones yet, and especially no LTE iPhone 4G. Non-iPhone LTE phones should come by mid-2011 though we'll probably get some sneak peaks at CES this January. Rumors still heavily suggest an iPhone 4 on Verizon early next year but just like Apple stuck to EDGE for iPhone 2G, it's assumed they'll be sticking to CDMA for the Verizon iPhone.
