Nexus One Video Review -- The Competition

I had a chance to use Dieter's Nexus One during CES 2010, and while I've shared my thoughts already, Android Central's Phil Nickinson has just put up a complete Nexus One video review of his own. While I am jealous at how often they (and he!) get new devices to play with, I'm not jealous at how much reviewing he has to do. Phew!

Check out his video, then come on back and tell us what you think -- how does the Nexus One measure up?

Steve Jobs Thinks "Mobile Ads Suck", Intends iTunes-style Fix?

BusinessWeek is reporting that, according to the cliched "source familiar with the situation", Apple CES Steve Jobs thinks "mobile ads suck" in their current form (oh, hai, Google!) and intends to do for them what he did for music with iTunes and mobile with the iPhone -- revolutionize it.

Developer Leaks Imminent iPhone 4.0? Not.

UPDATED: TiPb heard back from the developer, and sure enough, it's their app 4.0, nothing to do with iPhone OS 4.0. Move along. Notiong to see here...

CNET is reporting, and others are picking up, that a developer sent them a note saying:

"Just wanted to give you a heads up that we've submitted an updated app for the new iPhone OS 4.0 software."

Well, TiPb got a note from a developer worded exactly the same way:

Apple Co-Founder Woz Did Not Ditch iPhone for Google's Nexus One

Yesterday NBC Bay Area reported (and Android Central gloated!) that Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak, had replaced his iPhone for the big bark and less bite Google/HTC Nexus One. TiPb never believed Woz would ever relinquish his beloved iPhone and, sure enough, NBC Bay Area has now updated their story:

ScreenGuardz Privacy for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

NLU Products, makers of BodyGuardz, were gracious enough to take some time out at CES 2010 and show TiPb their four-way ScreenGuardz Privacy film for iPhone. Four-way means it won't just shield your iPhone from prying eyes in portrait mode, but horizontal as well. Buh-bye over-the-shoulder airplane movie snooper!

Check out the video, after the break!

Apple Exploring Contacts on the Home Screen - Apple Patent Watch

Apple Exploring Contacts on the Home Screen - Apple Patent Watch

The Apple patents keep on rolling out and today the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office accepted Apple’s filing for a patent that would allow for contact icons to be placed on the home screen, along with the ability to invoke apps, retrieve and display contacts information, or dynamically display related information all tied to an individual contact.

<

blockquote>"The icon can also be used to invoke one or more applications that are personalized to the contact. The icon can be modified to display information related to the contact. In one aspect, an icon associated with an entity can be temporarily displayed on the mobile device based on the proximity of the mobile device to the entity."

This is pure speculation on our part but it's possible you will see this patent come to life in the upcoming iPhone OS 4.0. Hopefully when January 27th comes we all will see what is in store for the future of the iPhone OS.

Now please excuse me while I go add a few more contacts on the home screen of my Moto Droid, since it's been doing that for a while. ;)

One more screen shot after the break!

Powermat Inductive Charging for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

Powermat Inductive Charging for iPhone -- TiPb @ CES 2010

Inductive charging is the future, and one of the companies trying to bring it to the iPhone is Powermat. I say trying only because, unlike our friends over at CrackBerry.com, we won't be able to just swap in an inductive battery and go about our business. To truly bring inductive to the iPhone, Apple will have to build it in the way Palm does with the Pre and Pixi.

But Apple is Apple, so companies like Powermat are working around them with cases. The iMore Store has the 2009 Powermat models in stock, but coming later in 2010, they're getting sleeker and adding a second, slightly longer case that includes an extended battery.

Powermat, and others, believe one day inductive charging will just be built into our counters, desks, cars, etc. Hopefully Apple includes it in the 4th generation iPhone. I know I want it.
