Mix: AAPL Q1, LG, Arcade Bowling, Chipotle

Apple plans to release its first quarter financial results on Wednesday, January 21. As it has done in the past, the company also plans to conduct a conference call to discuss its first quarter results; the call will begin at 2:00 p.m. PST and will be available as an audio webcast.

LG Display has signed a deal to supply Apple with LCD panels for the next five years. The company did not disclose the total size of the deal, but said in a filing to the Korea Exchange that it would receive a $500 million advance from Apple this month. “Although LG Display already had a relationship with Apple, the deal’s duration and the size of the advance show that the two companies are involved in a long-term, strategic alliance,” said Son Young-jun, a spokesman for LG Display. It is unknown whether any of the displays are planned for use in Apple’s portable media devices.

Skyworks has released Arcade Bowling, its latest game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Based on the popular arcade game Skeeball, users flick to send “laser” balls down the alley and up the ramp toward the scoring holes. Once in the air, users can also influence the ball’s flight in midair using the accelerometer. The game also features two sound tracks, 3D graphics, and two game modes—Classic and Progressive. Arcade Bowling is available now from the App Store and sells for $2.

National burrito restaurant chain Chipotle has released Chipotle Mobile Ordering, its new application for the iPhone and iPod touch. The app allows users to order food directly from these devices, offering access to the full menu of options, including sauces and extras, saving favorite orders for later, and paying with a credit card from the application. It also offers a Chipotle location finder. Chipotle Mobile Ordering is available now as a free download from the App Store.

Wow…umm there’s a thin line between convenience and laziness and I believe we can look around and see which is which.  An app to order a burrito…come on.

If you’ve seen the #1 paid app on the App Store recently, the idea of a Chipotle app suddenly seems to be really smart by comparison.

:)  Jeremy-san you are right… but it’s number two now.  :)

Pretty soon, you’ll be able to order the burrito from an app, have your ipod/ iphone eat it for you, and deal with the flatulence it built up for you at the push of a button.

This is the dawn of digitized digestion.  What’s going to happen to the smell?

@ Samson

I think it’s amusing that a person can read a few comments regarding a burrito app and then proceed to judge a person’s character based upon it. 

I could give you a real witty response, however I like iLounge and would like to continue to frequent it. 

Did you even bother to read the disclaimer at the bottom of the page?

If any of you had been to a New York Chipotle, you would realize the value of the app.  We have two of the restaurants in my neighborhood, and by 12:00 the lines are out the door.  Anything to avoid that line is great.

Cereal: The comment in question has been closed, and the poster banned. It came from some sad, probably abused little kid who has nothing better to do with his life than make insulting comments on web sites; our administrators have been monitoring him for a while and he pops up once in a while just to say something stupid. No need to be concerned about it, we’re on to him.

No concern here. Thank you for enforcing the policies.  More reason for me to like iLounge.  Too many other sites say what they’ll do, but rarely do it.  So again, thank you for making my visits more pleasant.

I definitely agree with otaku. I love Chipotle, but the line to order is ridiculous much of the time. this app could make it a much better experience, if only it will show up in the App Store. So far, I haven’t been able to find this in the App Store, and the link above does not work.

From what I have read, their servers were over-whelmed, so they pulled the app.
