Bleeding Edge TV 146: Portable Sound Laboratories iMainGo

Portable Sound Laboratories makes the iMainGo, a portable iPod speaker and case. It runs on four AAA batteries, delivering up to 30 hours of power, and even has an alarm mode built right in to the unit. Aside from providing fairly decent sound on the go, it also protects the iPod from sratches and drop damage since it’s fairly thick. It fits every iPod ever made, and works across the board. Notice, they mention it will fit the new iPod that comes out in February. That’s this month. Nevertheless, the iMainGo is available for $69.95.

CES 2007: Cisco Sues Apple Over iPhone Name

Posted by Chris Cardinal Categories: Apple, CES, CES 2007

iphone Cisco, who holds the trademark on the iPhone product name (and already sells an eponymous product) has decided to sue Apple in federal court for use of their trademark. This, after much discussion of Cisco and Apple coming to an agreement.

“Cisco entered into negotiations with Apple in good faith after Apple repeatedly asked permission to use Cisco’s iPhone name,” said Mark Chandler, Cisco senior vice president and general counsel, in a statement. “There is no doubt that Apple’s new phone is very exciting, but they should not be using our trademark without our permission.”

Whoopsie. Perhaps Apple can fax the paperwork back to them already and be done with it? (Though, if rumors of the agreement being of a per-unit-sold nature, we all know how reticent Apple is to pay into a royalty structure like that.)

Apple Releases PacMan, Tetris, Zuma for iPod: $4.99 a pop

iPod PacMan

Well, it looks as though all of those rumors of Apple trying to hire games industry professionals may not have been all that far off. Today, during the “It’s Showtime” keynote at the Yerba Buena center in San Francisco, Apple announced that they will be releasing iPod-compatible versions of Tetris, Zuma, Mah-Jong, Texas Holdem, Cubis 2, and other games on the iTunes store for $4.99 a piece.

It’s not clear whether these games will only be compatible with the iPod phat yet, or if they’ll also work with the nano. However, Steve J did mention that all of the games should be compatible with the 5G video iPods y’all already have. This is good news, since Apple also announced during their presentation that they’re updating the whole iPod product line - including a “5.5G” video iPod with 60% brighter screen, iPod nanos in colored aluminum enclosures, and a re-designed iPod Shuffle. We’ll update this story with more information as it becomes available on the Apple website.

UPDATE 1: Apple’s website has been updated, indicating that the iGames are compatible only with the 5G iPod or the newly-released 60% brighter 5.5G iPods. iPod nanos are not supported. We’ve downloaded some of these games from the iTunes Store (went very smoothly - this is Apple after all) and will have full reviews up shortly. It’s looking like at least some of these are worth the $5.00 download.
