    Every year we hear the tragic tales of individuals who perished after getting lost on what should have been an uneventful mountain hike, skiing trip, or other mountainous adventure of some sort. Now, the iPhone 3GS is being modified into a potentially life saving device to help wayward individuals find their way back to safety. Or at least find a bathroom.

    Geek.com is providing coverage of the new app's release. Dubbed "REALSKI," the application enables users to scan their surroundings using their iPhone 3GS. Thanks to the miracle of augmented reality, digital graphics appear over the landscape to reveal specific information and vital details about nearby trails and virtually everything else in your immediate surroundings - even if it's covered in snow and invisible to the naked eye.

    A free version of REALSKI is available but includes information pertinent to the above five US resorts only. Additional resorts and locations will be available for a fee ...

    It appears that the folks over at Bloomberg are reporting that Apple is "in talks to acquire online music service Lala, according to two people familiar with the matter." Lala, along with MySpace, power a full-song streaming service that uses Google's new music search, and is also part of the Facebook gift shop. If the supposed acquisition actually happens, it will play a big role in Apple moving towards the digital 'Cloud' strategy. This ...

    It appears that nothing changes over at Apple Legal. Yet again they are being sued, this time by a company called St. Clair Intellectual Property Consultants. They claim that Apple's iPhone infringes on four digital camera patents that the company holds. The four include the ‘459, ‘219, ‘010 and ‘899 patents.

    While I am no legal expert, these patents sound utterly stupid to me. I mean, isn't this what every digital camera does. ...

    As an iPhone developer, if you want to run ads on your app to make money, it's not exactly a simple step by step process. With each company out there promising more and more to try and sway you to use their services over others, promising this or that, it can be confusing. And to top it all off, there is really no way to know which one is the best for you and your app.

    This can lead to a huge mess when tracking profits and figuring out which platform is working for you. This is where .app/ads steps up to the plate. .App/ads is an in-application advertising management tool. Like the other players, .app/ads provides a uber-simple dashboard for app developers to create mutiple ad slots within their apps, list their apps, and implement advertising through a variety of ad-networks/exchanges. App/ads was build from the ground up, to help developers manage, maximize, and optimize their ad space all under one single platform, in the most effect way.

    Now the features don't stop here. With all of the services available such as AdMob/Google, MobClix, ...

Airlock unlocks your Mac when you approach it, based on the proximity of the Bluetooth transceiver on your iPhone (or later-gen iPod touch). The Mac will lock when your device leaves the preset range, but Airlock also accepts your account password as backup, in case the device is unavailable or its battery dies: since ...

    There are plenty of things that we've seen, heard, and done with the iPhone. But an "iPhone orchestra" isn't one of them. Until now, that is.

    According to 9to5Mac:

    The "iPhone concert," which will play out next Wednesday, December 9th at the University of Michigan, will stay true to its title. Not a single traditional instrument will be used. Every contributor will hit their high notes on the iPhone only. ...

    After nearly a full year of waiting for city planners to get on the ball and rezone close to eight acres of property in the Cupertino community, it seems Apple has finally received a critical chunk of approval in their longstanding endeavor to build a second campus in Cupertino.

    The site in question is located near the Hewlett-Packard campus and was purchased by Apple in 2006. Shortly before that, however, the city rezoned ...

    It appears that Apple is slowly trying to phase out the older iPods that feature the vintage Click Wheel. I find this to be kind of an ******* move considering they just re-released the nano with video support, which still uses the Click Wheel. So anyone who enjoys games on their iPod Nano, unfortunately there will be nothing new to look forward to.

    Joystiq reported on some new games coming out soon, and happened to mention ...
