Up in the air: Discount on inflight wifi

If you travel, you know there’s no cellular data in the air. So checking email on your iPhone or looking up restaurants in your destination city is a no-go – unless, of course, you’ve got GoGo. The inflight wifi service is available on select flights across several major airlines, including United, US Air, Delta, American Airlines, Continental and…

App Magnets: Cutest iFridge art ever

These App Magnets are just the cutest things I’ve seen in a long time. And get this – they’re true to the actual iPhone apps. Awwwww. (Think of it; if your fridge is black, you could have the world’s biggest iPhone replica.) At $12.99, I think every iPhone user on my gift-giving list is getting a set of these this year. This fridge art beat…

New gestures coming for iPhone 4G?

You’ve got to love geeks. I mean that in the most sincere way possible. (Seriously, my hubby’s one, and I’ve got more than a little geek streak in me, myself.) What I’m talking about this time though has to do with some clever technological sleuthing. For what? Ideas on what the next iPhone might come with, of course! Here’s the…

Top 10 free travel apps

PC Mag just ran a pretty cool list of its top 10 free travel apps. I can definitely appreciate this, since the last few months have taken me to all over the country. I know that for some of you, this might be small beans though. So for the road (or air) warriors in our midst, hopefully the following list will be of use. For the most part, I agree with…

Is iPhone getting “Bing’ed”?

This Apple vs. Google thing is getting downright weird, and making some strange corporate bedfellows. The worst part? The latest episode in this saga might have the iPhone ditching integrated Google search via Safari. Here’s what happened: Before the Android phone explosion, Google and Apple were pals. (Google’s Eric Schmidt even sat on Apple’s…

If Homer owned an iPhone…

Is there anyone on Planet Earth who still doesn’t acknowledge the mass-market, mainstream adoption of the iPhone? For cryin’ out loud, even Homer Simpson has one! Me likey this Simpsons intro – it crams a lot into 10 seconds: The fun of apps, the alluring god-complex of being lord and master of your environment (even if it is an iPhone…

De Blob Revolution game demo

PhoneArena uploaded a vid demoing De Blob Revolution for the iPhone, a new version of the De Blob game from THQ Wireless. Simply put, it looks crazy fun. De Blob makes his way through buildings where ‘graydians’ are trapped by the evil I.N.K.T. Corporation. You help your Blob find his way out while saving the graydians along the way. Rescue them all…

Apple’s hiring, as stores prep for iPad launch

So here’s another snippet of iPad news to keep our Todays iPhone readers up to date: The website ifoAppleStore, a site dedicated to news about Apple retail locations, has just reported that staff hiring is underway in preparation for the iPad’s arrival. I’m guessing lines won’t be too ridiculous for the iPad’s inaugural release, with Apple…

Is that a sausage stylus, or are you just happy to see me? (part deux)

My brethren in South Korea are pretty… well, let’s just say creative. I mean, c’mon! Who else would use a sausage as an iPhone stylus? (Apparently, frozen sausages from a company called CJ Corporation are electrostatically compatible for use on an iPhone screen, so this has become the input tool of choice for some users who don’t want to take…

Sanity Breaks: iPhone Diversions

Come on, we all need ’em from time to time. You know, those completely simple diversions that bring a little clarity back into an otherwise insane day. I used to feel guilty popping one of these apps open when there was so much “work” to be done around me. If I was going to play a game, shouldn’t I at least be exercising my mind a bit – learning while…
