Like getting ripped off on the look and feel of over priced plastic? Tom Tom has a hardware accessory for that.

Hate me if you want. Call me too cynical. But one thing is for certain, Tom Tom’s iPhone car mount is over priced by about 80% of what it should actually cost. In case you were curious. The mount is currently available for pre-order on Apple’s UK store for £100 ($160.67 [...]

Apple gets caught in big fat lie…Phil Schiller DID reject Google Voice. Double standards in play. Ball’s in your court FCC.

While the ongoing drama surrounding the Google Voice/Apple App Store fiasco has been relatively quiet these last couple weeks, that doesn’t mean stuff has died down. Oh no…not in the slightest. Remember how Apple claimed a couple weeks ago that they hadn’t approved the Google Voice app but hadn’t exactly rejected it either [...]

All I can say is thank god there will be more than just one turn-by-turn navigation app in the app store. While AT&T’s navigation app looks really nice and has a pretty stellar feature set to boot, the $10/month price tag is simply stupid (read: another money grabbing attempt because they don’t already over-charge [...]
