TweetDeck is already on iOS

TweeDeck is already on iOS isn't it? Or did the article refer instead to Adobe AIR?

Apple's move to kill Hackintosher suit denied

This could be a stupid question...

...but I notice no one seems to be taking Sony or Nintendo to court over the issue of their respective console games only working with their respective consoles. How is this not very similar?

Habitat response

On the Social Media Today Site, the Habitat Press Office posted the following comment - which seems to have been missed by most news sources reporting the story:

"In response to speculation, we would like to clarify – this was not done by an agency. The hashtags were uploaded without Habitat’s authorisation by an overenthusiastic intern who did not fully understand the ramifications of his actions. He is no longer associated with Habitat."

Shock: Doctors have been watching old stand-up routines

Didn't Bill Hicks say something similar some time ago?

I can't remember the exact quote but it was something like: "Can you calm down on your rutting just for a couple of seconds until we can figure out this food/ air deal?"

'Portable' CD player puts MP3 into a spin

Matthew Cochrane

Not all that original...

It looks a bit like a Sound Burger portable record player. You can see one on this site: http://www.retrothing.com/2005/11/sound_burger_vi.html

As someone else pointed out you couldn't put this in your pocket whilst it was playing a CD, you couldn't really listen to it in a car or on a train, and it would scratch the discs really easily. Also it looks like if you closed it whilst it was playing it would fire the disc at some speed.
