One unique aspect of the iPhone is that you, as the buyer, get to activate it yourself using iTunes, rather than having the phone activated in-store. We figured we would activate the phone on camera to show how seamless (or non-seamless, depending on how you look at it) the iPhone activation experience is. Watch the video, and let us know what you think.
For all of you out there that HAVEN’T been furiously searching through the Xbox Live Marketplace for new content, the fact that the Blue Dragon demo is now live may have passed you by. Well, that’s why we’re here. Don’t you love us?
Downloads seem to be a little slow right now (I’m at about 11%), and the fact that tons of new video content from Disney is also available now probably isn’t helping. Speaking of which, on an aside rant, how in the HELL did Microsoft convince Disney to allow HD Disney content on Xbox Live? I mean, Disney is staunchly pro-Blu-Ray, putting them in the camp of top Microsoft competitors Sony and Apple. And Steve Jobs is on the board of directors of Disney for chrissake! I guess all that D Conference “Steve Jobs and Bill Gates sittin’ in a tree” stuff wasn’t just for show.
Anyway, yeah… go downlad the Blue Dragon demo now!

We went out to Parallels headquarters right outside Seattle to talk to Ben Rudolph, and to get a first-hand look at Parallels 3.0. Ben walks us through all of the new features of the latest release of the vastly popular OS X virtualization software, including 3D GPU support, SmartSelect, and Snapshots. If you have been waiting for something truly excellent to enhance your computing experience, this may very well be it.
As evidenced by the video above, found on YouTube by one of our readers, the Apple iPhone now has an official launch date: June 29, 2007. The commercial first aired this evening during an episode of 60 Minutes. The announcement of the release date was subtle, and was featured at the end of the spot, which showcase a few of the iPhone’s functions. We were expecting Steve Jobs to announce the launch date at WWDC, but what do we know? All that matters now is that the biggest mobile phone launch in history is just a few weeks away.
UPDATE: Apple just posted three new iPhone commercials, all featuring the June 29 launch date.

So we’ve managed to put up an Unboxing Gallery of the Apple TV, and neglected to notify you when we did it. Oh well, still, we are sure that there are plenty out there who are curious about what comes in the box (not much), along with what the Apple TV looks like from all sides. And really, once again Apple has done a fantastic job of making a device possibly feel more special than it is simply by the way they packaged it—although, with their failure to pack in any sort of video cable, be it digital or analog, they managed to also make you feel like something is missing at the same time. In any event, click on for the Apple TV unboxing gallery.

iPhone’s first commercial was released during Sunday’s Academy Awards, featuring the likes of Lucille Ball, Clark Gable, Robert Redford, Betty Rubble, and Bogey. Apple has cleverly managed to reveal absolutely nothing about their product in an entertaining kind of way. When we first saw it, we were hoping that they might release the iPhone with ringtones of one of our fave actors. Think what those around you would do if your iPhone chimed out Eastwood’s, “Make my day, Punk” or DeNiro’s “You talking to me?” in the middle of a crowded room. The iPhone is expected to make its debut this June.

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.
iFrogz says they have the world’s most customized iPod cases. We get a look and demo. Basically, there are three pieces that form the case, and they are available in 34 colors each for the external casing, and then 200 individual pieces for the click wheel cover. You can also upload your own art for the click wheel cover. Compatible with all iPod nano, 4th gen, and 5th gen. You can customize your own case for $29 USD. Even better, though, is the iFrogz Tadpole, which is a holder that is great for kids who want to watch video content in the car.
