iPhone Review from CrackBerry Kevin -- Smartphone Round Robin

Apple's third iPhone meets CrackBerry Kevin's third iPhone review, exclusively in the 2009 Smartphone Round Robin. Year one he called it the iSmudge. Then they got the Storm. Year two he called it the Ah *** phone. Then they got the Storm. (Joking. Not.) What's he calling the iPhone and iPhone users this year?

Fox News: iTablet, iPhone 4.0, iLife 2010 Focus of Apple Jan 27 "Come see our latest creation" Event

Fox News: iTablet, iPhone 4.0, iLife 2010 Focus of Apple Jan 27 "Come see our latest creation" Event

Fox News, which originally predicted a media-focused Jan. 26 event, is back to say Apple's now-Jan. 27 "Come see our latest creation" will focus on the iTablet, iPhone 4.0 operating system (no hardware), and iLife 2010.

iTablet/iSlate/iWhatever makes the kind of sense that does. The hype is so loud you can hear it in space. What it is remains a mystery, but if Apple wasn't going to show it off, we'd expect a leak or PR blurb hinting they weren't to shape expectations.

Slacker Personal Radio for iPhone Now Available in Canada

Slacker Personal Radio for iPhone Now Available in Canada

Slacker Personal Radio [Free - iTunes link] is now available in the Canadian App Store. While our friend's at CrackBerry.com got to enjoy the news a little sooner, thanks to Apple's currently speedier App approval process and iLounge's spot, TiPb didn't have to wait as long as we feared either.

As far as we know, this is the first streaming internet radio service available to Canadian iPhone users (blame our nightmarish licensing) and it includes some nice local content:

  • Canadian Rock
  • Canadian Country
  • Canadian Today's Hits

Slacker also tells TiPb that the 2.0 version is coming soon, and will provide station caching for iPhone and iPod touch. Can't. Wait.

Note: While the app is free for the first 30 days, a $5/month Slacker Plus subscription turns off the ads, turns on unlimited skips, and otherwise makes the service much more enjoyable and functional thereafter. More Plus features, after the break...

One small step for the internet, one giant leap for Canadian music.

Workers on Strike at Apple iPhone Touch-screen Supplier

The iPhone more than the sum of its many parts, but when the part in question is the touch-screen itself, and workers at the manufacturer's Suzhou, China facility go on strike, we have to wonder what that will do for supplies in the medium term?

More than 2,000 workers gathered and damaged facilities and vehicles after rumors that the factory may not pay a planned bonus for 2009, the [21st Century Business Herald] said, citing the statement. The plant belongs to Taiwan-based Wintek Corp., the world’s biggest touch-screen maker for mobile phones.
