The Developers of jQTouch describe it as “A jQuery plugin for mobile web development on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and other forward-thinking devices.” In English, that means they have a sweet development kit to help web app developers create awesome interfaces in Safari. There isn’t an easy way to describe it all so here are a bunch of great videos demoing what can be done with jQTouch in Safari.

Tonight, my wife and I went to dinner with friends, one being a local radio station manager. He was telling me one of his employees was super excited about a DJ app that was released recently. He said the guy had been waiting for the app and that I should check it out. Well, looking for videos for tonight’s Friday Night Movie Night I just happened to run across the same app and I’m telling you, from the video, it looks like it’s worth the $19.99 their asking for it. I’m gonna try hard to get a promo code for this app and get a video review of all it’s features. Being such an expensive app, you need to know what it can do before you buy. Here’s their promo video which is pretty convincing if you’re into this kinda stuff.

According to App Store reviews, this app is horrible, but the videos look convincing! We’re in contact with the developers and we’ll get some promo codes so we can try it out for ourselves and make a video showing how it really works. For now, you’ll have to check out some other videos pulled from YouTube:

Despite the recent lawsuit from AT&T, Verzion has released another round of commercials just in time for Christmas depicting the iPhone as just another misfit toy because of it’s lack of 3G coverage. I’ll admit that 3G coverage is limited, but I’d rather have the iPhone over the DROID or other Google Android Phones I’ve used. It’s just not an iPhone…
I don’t know if you guys have seen this yet or not but, TechnoBuffalo recently did a very nice video comparison of the iPhone 3GS vs. the Motorola Droid. The video is just over 17 minutes long and covers everything from browser usability and speed to customization to maps to app availability.
I’m sure all the Droid ads may have peeked your interest… so, take a look. Personally, I’m partial to the iPhone… obviously! :)
Since it’s Halloween, I thought this might be appropriate. Actually this is amazing and hilarious. The screens actually work live with the iPhone. Check the info after the video for specs.
TAMPA, FLA., Reko Rivera (Left) John Savio (Right) — World’s first award winning “working” iPhone costume created by Reko Rivera and John Savio. Specifications are 42″ Display, 1.5 Hours of Battery Life, 85 lb and the “real” iPhone can charge connected to the USB on the display. The two costumes have 3 batteries each with a total runtime of 4.5 hours before needing to be charged overnight. Please email us if you need any more information about the costume.
BACKSTORY — This all started two years ago Reko Rivera and Bobby Hartman created a wearable large iPhone costume with a real 37″ lcd tv. An iPod was attached with a looping video of a real iphones screen in normal use. This time with the help of John Savio and John Matthews the team created yet another amazing rendition of the new iPhone 3GS. Savio loved the original idea but wanted to take it to the next level and make it thinner and actually work with user input! With some heavy researching and some solid determination Savio finally found a solution. He managed to modify the software on the iPhone to allow a live dual image output to the large 42″ lcd tv while maintaining the image in landscape mode. Reko originally came up with the idea and really pushed to see his vision come to life two years ago. This year John and Reko plan to compete in most of the local and online contest to win back all the money they invested in the costumes. The team has about $2000 into the two costumes and has no regrets!
