Mix: iFixit, iPhone baby, Laptop, touch

iFixit has posted a teardown of the iPod touch. Of note in the teardown article is the iPod touch’s battery, the volume of which is 81 percent that of the iPhone, and the fact that the display can be separated from the glass, allowing for more simple repairs.

iPopmybaby (formerly iPodmybaby) has introduced its new iPhone/iPod touch-styled one piece baby outfit. The design, printed on the front, features iPhone-like icons representing various baby activities such as “Nap,” “Eat,” and “Crawl.” The iPhone Baby one piece outfit sells for $18.

Laptop Magazine has posted a panel discussion with executives from Helio, Motorola, Nokia, and Samsung concerning the iPhone. Topics covered include the group’s iPhone likes and dislikes, as well as questions regarding the viability of touch screen technology, and the need for convergence.

A post from Apple discussion forums member “drvelocity” claims that the black level issues with some iPod touch displays are caused by a problem with the anti-reflective coating, which suggests the problem is indeed a manufacturing defect, as opposed to a software-based problem.

I know the Baby-clothes makers are trying to avoid a lawsuit from Apple, but have they thought that “I pop my baby” might garner them extremely negative press?

That Laptop Magazine article is a waste of space - almost no substantive comments from other manufacturers about the smartphone market and what Apple’s entrance to it means, and numerous comments about how each of their products is better than the iPhone. It reminds me of the worst portions of recent political debates - candidates not answering questions directly, just talking about themselves in whatever positive ways they can.
