It’s been a foregone conclusion for awhile, but it’s now official: Valve is bringing Steam and Source to Mac in April; Portal 2 will be Valve’s first simultaneous Mac/Windows release.
We admit Neo-Fight.tv’s Apple Ad doesn’t come close to beating the original Old Spice Ad; still, it’s a refreshing new scent compared to Apple’s somewhat stale Get A Mac spots.
New Potato’s FLPR may be the iPhone/iPod Remote to rule them all: it’s packed with 14,000 codes that not only control TVs and set-top boxes but your house’s lights, drapes and more.
Followers of Steve, let the buying frenzy commence: MacHeist nanoBundle 2 provides $260 worth of apps (including Monkey Island) for $20, with 25% going to the charity of your choice.
Berkeley student Roland Saekow’s BearExtender n3 is a 700 mW Wi-fi radio that increases the range of any Apple laptop or desktop’s signal by 2x-4x by replacing its Airport card.
Sure, the iPad Basic (aka the Notepod+) is a pad of paper, but it features zero bezel, infinite battery life, and doubles as a mousepad; in other words, GUI-sketching heaven for app devs.
Whether you’re an Apple lover or hater, it’s hard not to agree with CollegeHumor’s iPad Comedy Gold Mine; from feminine hygiene to giant iPhone, it’s a little too easy to make fun of.
Apple’s iPad is official: 0.5″ thick and 1.5 lbs, it sports a 9.7″ capacitive multi-touchscreen, 16-64GB flash memory, 1GHz Apple A4 chip, WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth, and optional 3G.
Whether you’re an Apple fan or hater, there’s no denying that today is Steve Jobs day: not so coincidentally, this I’m With Cocoa t-shirt parodies another pale, lanky, and geeky celebrity.
It’s only a day before Steve Jobs reveals “the most important thing” he’s ever done, but Walt Mosspuppet already has a tablet review up; psst: it’s totally tongue-in-geek-cheek.
Google Voice arrives on the iPhone and Palm Pre courtesy HTML5; you’ll need to access it via your browser, but outgoing calls will display on Caller ID with your Google Voice number.
We’ll actually be disappointed if Apple’s Tablet doesn’t look like this MacView concept; it features two multi-touch LED screens, 1 TB SSD, 4 GB RAM and docking into an iMac-style stand.
Based on Apple’s iPod Mini, Mirko Ginepro’s hollow iTables are decidedly un-Mini but are definitely Cupertino-chic: they’re made with Corian and measure about 47″ long and 13″ high.
Fanboys of both OS’ are BSODing and kernel panicking as we speak: AdFreak has compiled all 66 TV spots from Apple’s “Get a Mac” campaign starring John Hodgman and Justin Long.
YouTube’s Pantless Knights spoof Lonely Island’s I’m On A Boat with I’m On A Mac ft. PC-Pain and two Jobs; it may be pro-Apple, but it’s more a reason not to be a fanboy of any camp.
Also fresh from Google today: over 300 Chrome Extensions are now available for Windows users, while Mac and Linux finally get their own version of the Chrome browser.
All your TV belong to Apple: ThinkFlood’s RedEye System turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a multi-touch universal remote; it uses a dock-like Wi-Fi to IR bridge and iPhone app.
Ideal for road warriors gung-ho about using a MacBook, Zemno’s DeskBook Pro is a docking station with 7 USB ports, 4 FireWire ports, a flash card reader, and hot-swap HDD/SSD bays.
Apple’s aluminum too bland? ColorWare now offers custom solid, metallic and pearl finishes to the new 21.5″ and 27″ iMacs; also available: custom Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboards.
We’re still hurting over the $80 price tag, but Twelve South’s BassJump is undeniably sexy; it’s a USB-powered subwoofer that adds midrange and bass to your MacBook’s speakers.
Ravensword isn’t perfect (no skill trees), but it shines as an iPhone/iPod Touch RPG with nearly 50 characters, an open world, and plenty of side quests; not bad for a two-man team.
Call of Duty: Zombies for the iPhone lets gets touchy-feely with the undead; it’s limited to one map, but the multiplayer co-op is full-featured with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and online (!) support.
Similar to the Steadicams used in Hollywood, the iSteady Shot uses a two-axis gimbal to reduce camera shake, resulting in ultra-smooth iPhone and Nano movies; demo movie here.
Road warriors who’d like their stock earphones to go AWOL ASAP should requisition a Black Ops Throat Mic iPhone headset; it cancels out background noise and picks up your whispers.
Available for iPhone, Touch, or Nano: for the price of a regular case, idox’s Traveler Series not only offers hardshell protection, but doubles as a stand with rubber feet for stability.
It’s not MacHeist 4, but the nanoBundle includes six apps worth $154 (Hordes of Orcs, Twitterific) for free; the sixth app, Mariner Write, will be released when 500k bundles are downloaded.
