ESPN has launched an iPhone-specific version of its PodCenter podcast listings. The interface can be accessed by visiting espn.com from an iPhone and features more than 25 podcasts.

Popular social networking site Facebook has also launched an iPhone-specific interface. It can be accessed from the iPhone at iphone.facebook.com.

Nike’s Amp+ iPod-controlling watch has appeared on the FCC’s website. The black watch connects to the iPod nano through the Nike+iPod Sport Kit.

French wireless service provider Orange has declined to comment on recent reports claiming that it has won the license to carry the iPhone in France. “Orange has no comment to make on the rumors about the iPhone,” a spokeswoman for the carrier said in an e-mailed statement.

That Facebook iPhone interface is really slick - they seem to have optimized almost every major feature into a format that works really well on the screen. This bodes poorly for my productivity, though: since the site is even easier to use now I suspect I’ll be on it far more frequently…

yup. that facebook for iPhone is brilliant. goodbye facebook “mobile”!

now this espn thing. i’m not really quite sure what its talking about. the only thing i could get to work was this:

1) espn.com (via iPhone)
2) find the link for Podcenter in the upper portion of the site and tap.
3) tap on a particular podcast.
4) it starts playing via quicktime (all of this on the iPhone)

is that it? its great and cool and everything, but am i missing something here?

Luke, if you open the page from an iphone, after you do your first 2 steps, on the top right is a big ad for iphone users.  Click on that, and it takes you to the iphone-centric page.  You still just click on a podcast and it plays via quicktime (which is cool enough, since you don’t need a computer as a middleman), but it does it through an iphone-like interface.  I really like it.
