Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.— Russell Brand (@rustyrockets) March 14, 2012
There are times when we simply can’t explain why we do things. I am, therefore extremely grateful to Russell Brand, who has shoveled deep inside his own psyche to explain an incident that involved him, a photographer, an iPhone, and the window of a lawyer’s office. His explanation suggests that the death of Steve Jobs has affected him more than anyone might have thought.
Less than two days after Apple’s new iPad was unveiled, the company has sold out of launch-day preorders in its online store, as new orders are now advertised to ship by March 19.
With the 25 billionth app sold the evening of March 3rd to Chunli Fu of Qingdao, China, Apple has now taken the time to tally up the top all-time paid and free apps for iPhone and iPad. The last time Apple updated the list was when a paltry 10 billion apps had gone out the virtual doors of the App Store.
While space prohibits posting the entire list here, let it suffice to say that Angry Birds (US$0.99) topped the list for paid iPhone apps, Facebook was the most-downloaded free iPhone app, Pages ($9.99) was the most popular paid iPad app, and Angry Birds HD Free pushed its way to the top of the free iPad app list.
No surprises here. I’d love to see the percentage of iPhone and iPad owners who downloaded these apps, I bet it’s really high.
Although we’ve already seen many stories about possible iPad 3 part leaks over the past few weeks, MIC Gadget has been able to get its hands on the rumored parts for the iPad 3 Front Glass, Rear Shell, and 3rd party cases.
The site put them together in this nice overview video:
iPad 3 part rumors are usually pretty dull, but this video is worth watching. I hope they’re right about the Smart Cover.
