As Apple Starts Talking About App Rejections, Another Popular One Is Pulled


The timing, really couldn’t be more perfect. Just as no less than Apple VP Phil Schiller has started making comments on the record about App Store rejections, Apple yanks another very popular one from its store. Sex Offender, an app to locate sexual predators in your area, had been consistently in the top 10 paid apps for weeks. And now it’s gone — not just off of the list, but off of the store.

Simon the Sorcerer hitting iPhone


The Secret of Monkey Island was the big one. Whenever a new adventure game – retro or otherwise – appeared on the iPhone, it’s song was lost in the white noise of, "Where’s Monkey Island!".
But now that LucasArts’s immortal point and click classic is out of the way, developers can reach a little deeper into the adventure archives to blow the dust off some other retro treasures such as Simon the Sorcerer.

ePhone i9s is an iPhone Clone with a little more


At first it strikes you as another iPhone clone, but then once you get your hands it and turn it on, it becomes something else altogether: an iPhone clone for spies. The ePhone i9s is a touchscreen iPhone-lookalike with two new features added. A touch-sensitive numeric keypad that becomes invisible when not in use and a nifty accessory: a wireless spy camera. Besides that, it’s a dual-SIM phone with Bluetooth and JAVA. Price is only $114. There is another pic after the break.

Panasonic HDC-SD10 unboxing video

If you are a regular visitor to then you’ll know that we’ve look at wide selection of camcorders recently, both HD and SD models. This week we got our hands on the Panasonic HDC-SD10 and the most striking thing about the SD10 (and it’s bigger brother the TM10) is just how light it is, weighing in at just 227 grams it’s actually one of the worlds lightest HD camcorders, weighing not much more than some mobile phones we’ve seen recently!

Panasonic HDC-SD10

You might think that the diminutive size and weight of the SD10 would mean that there was a trade-off in terms of features and specification but that’s not really the case. You get 1080i and 720p recording modes,  a high-res touschcreen LCD monitor and a 16x optical zoom to mention just a few of the nice features.

So we’ll be taking a closer look at the Panasonic HDC-SD10 over the next week or so and we’ll have a written review online for you. For now have a look at my brief unboxing video below for an overview.

iBreath: the iPhone Breathalyzer


Another fine example of iPhone peripheral ingenuity over at Cnet. This, must have, will help you work out if you have drunk over one pint at the pub. Or if you were plastered the night before and what time you can get in your car in the morning.

Innovation in the App Store has been rampant, but worthwhile development in third-party devices (save a few battery backups/boosters) has been sparse. iBreath, a Breathalyzer and FM Transmitter for the iPod (and unofficially for the iPhone), is a new and notable exception
