    A German company has come up with a collection of add-on gadgets for the iPhone that actually do things in the physical world, not just on the screen.

    At times it appears that our iPhones are practically glued to our hands. So perhaps to free up our hands, we can just glue our iPhones to our wrists? That's sort of the concept behind a new prototype wristwatch called the iWatch, which would would link up to your iPhone and communicate with it via Bluetooth.

    To clear up some confusion around the blogosphere, however, this is not an Apple ...

    Opened a little before Christmas 2009, less than half a year later marks the close of the Appsidy store. Recent Cydia updates addressing privacy (Appsidy used the UUID of your device to verify sales, as does the Cydia Store) broke Appsidy's ability to function well within Cydia, and after discussing the situation, they've decided ...
