Dual Alarm Clock for your iPhone / iPod from iLuv

5E9BA7F7-D75F-4CFD-B9D3-526500B52DE3.jpgWould you like a clock, alarm, remote and the ability to charge your iPhone and your iPod all at the same time? Well you’re in luck!

iLuv has just released the iMM173: Hi-Fi Dual Alarm Clock for your iPhone / iPod.

I read the specs and couldn’t find if it works with the iPhone 3G.

At a $129.00, it would be a nice addition to any bed side table.

September 9th – Apple’s Special Event? – Mark you calendar?

Kevin Rose is stirring up a huge “geek” whirlwind surrounding his latest video post about Apple’s new iPod nano, iTunes 8 and its new music subscription service.
On the TWIT, This Week in Tech podcast, he chatted about his video and gave more info about the upcoming special event.

This is a lot of news for one guy to unveil. Does he have the connections? In my opinion, he has a reputation to protect and can’t afford to be wrong.
I guess we will sit back, cross our fingers and wait until 9.9.08.

Tris is no more…..

Tris, the very cool Tetris like game that I talked about just recently….well it’s days are numbered.

According to Appletell:

“The developer, Noah Witherspoon, is a college student who received a notice from The Tetris® Company via Apple. I’ll let Noah explain it.

That, I’m afraid, is essentially game over. Do they have a case? No. Not really. I am convinced that if it went to court, the “copyright” claim would get thrown out completely. The trademark, perhaps not — but if I changed the name, to e.g. “Trys”, that would be much harder for them to argue.

Basically, Witherspoon doesn’t have the money to let this go to court, where he is confident he would be able to win the case. He goes on to say that he understands the idea of protecting a brand, but doesn’t respect the way they are going about it, relying entirely upon the fact that he doesn’t have the money to keep the app available.

But, this isn’t completely bad news; at least there’s a little wiggle room.  Tris will not be removed from the App Store until Wednesday August 27th. So get it while you still can.”
