“Fed up with using your iPhone’s touch screen for games and looking for a proper gamepad experience? Look no further, because the iControlPad will be with you soon. The device has been in development for some time. It allows you to fit a jailbroken iPhone in between two side clips that hold a gamepad below the phone in landscape mode, like you would a Nintendo DS. It’s connected with a sync cable. A different form of the iControlPad appeared before in 2008, but the developers decided not to go with that design, as it resulted in poor controls and had a problem that prevented you from using it on different devices.”—CNET

Seems like a pretty decent idea. I shall try this out.
Via: rocketboomtech:Wake Up World is the world’s first social alarm clock. The recently-developed iPhone app, which costs $0.99, supplies you with a username and secret code upon registering. You then share your secret code with other Wake Up World users, who can send you videos which appear at the time you set your alarm to “wake” you. One of the clever aspects of this app is that it’s inherently social and offers a built-in incentive for people to recommend the app to their loved ones, friends, or even strangers (chatroulette-style) for shared and surprising experiences.

Talking Carl is an Iphone App. Talking Carl has had me entertained for hours. He repeats whatever you speak into the mic with a funny cute voice. He get’s mad when you poke him and he laughs when you tickle him. He is basically a Tamagotchi I can have more fun with.
