    Shazam has teamed up with (RED), an organization that helps fight HIV and AIDS in Africa, joining big name brands like Apple, American Express, Dell, Gap, Hallmark & Starbucks. By sponsoring the product as (RED), it allows companies to share their profits by giving back. The company then brands the product with the (RED) logo, name, and color.

    Apple has been with the program for quite some time now, as ...

    With winter right around the corner, things are going to start go get a little chilly. That might be an understatement for myself, as I live up in Canada, and when winter comes around, it essentially means no using the iPhone outdoors because of clunky gloves. That is unless you're a trooper and want to risk some frostbite.

    However, we have noticed a much cooler season for various parts of North America, so this could come in handy ...

    One the biggest features that might sway a heavy texter away from purchasing the iPhone might be it's lack of keyboard. With no real feedback except for some sounds and visual cues, the iPhone keyboard can serve to be quite the pain in the *** if you do alot of typing on your Phone.

    Still to this day I have Blackberry users squeel about how their BB is better because it has a keyboard or how the BlackBerry Storm's feedback is way better than the iPhone. While all of this may be true, as always, we iPhone users have lots of options.

    Although this is probably something I would never use due to the fact that I do NOT want to carry around a bunch of screens. One thing in my pocket is enough.

    4iThumbs has created a tactile overlay for your iPhone keyboard providing real time feedback and as the website says, you can even type without looking. (I doubt that)

    Esesntially the i4Thumbs overlay has small little bumps where the keyboard would be. Although the pictures and video show an overlay designed for portrait mode, there is also a landscape version of the overlay as well. Of course this could serve to be a pain in the *** if you want to switch back and forth, but nonetheless, the option for a tactile keyboard on the iPhone does exist.

    You'll be happy to know that the 4iThumbs overlay is easily removed at any time to enjoy your games without some weird button layout. Their website boasts that ...

    In the latest move in its ongoing - and so far extremely successful - legal efforts against Mac clone maker Psystar, Apple has asked a Federal judge to issue a permanent injunction against the company, forbidding it from ever selling any computer bundled with Mac OS X. Apple's Vice President Phil Schiller indicated in an affidavit that he wants an end to the long legal battle, saying "Apple should not be required ...

    With the increasing dissatisfaction with Apple's long approval process and seemingly arbitrary rejections, iPhone developers have been looking to alternatives to the App Store. The "gatekeeper" approach has been a boon to the jailbreaking community, as new marketplaces come up to offer healthy competition and user choice. We recently highlighted one independent App Store, Rock Your Phone, when they released their 2.0 version. The founder announced today ...

    Last week rumors began to surface about what Apple would do to slash prices on its products for Black Friday, the ultimate day of sales following Thursday's Thanksgiving holiday. While initially it seemed that Apple would merely be discounting products on a percentage basis, new information is emerging that suggests a different plan may be in store for prospective Apple customers this Friday.

    According to TFTS, here's ...
