There have already been a few weather forecast apps released for the iPhone. Weather iWidget is not particularly notable in its design, but it will get you the information you need. Like other weather apps, simply enter a zip code and Weather iWidget does the rest.

We suppose it had to happen at some point--it was only a matter of time. Now you can have a virtual pet on your iPhone with Virtual Dog. Registering is a snap with the only requirements entering a username and password. Keeping your dog alive is the hard part, with several different training procedures you'll need to do to keep the little guy entertained. The graphics aren't great, but if a virtual pet is what you've been waiting for on your iPhone, Virtual Dog might suffice.
So that report on Monday from JPMorgan Chase, the one about the supposed iPhone Nano? The financial gurus have decided to rethink that one.
The Unofficial Apple Weblog spotted a new research note from JPMorgan analysts (thanks Gizmodo) that takes a very skeptical look at claims made Monday by their colleague, JPMorgan analyst Kevin Chang in Taiwan. Chang said in his report that Apple was hoping to launch a smaller, cheaper iPhone based on the iPod Nano design later this year. But JPMorgan's Bill Shope, Elizabeth Borbolla, and Vlad Rom threw Chang under the iBus in their own report … Read more
So feast your eyes on this. The Boy Genius Report has apparently scored some real-life photos of the next-gen T-Mobile Sidekick 3. Unlike previous models, the so-called Sidekick Slide (a.k.a. the Zante) is being manufactured by Motorola instead of Sharp and features a slide-up (duh, Slide) screen. No details on specs or availability just yet, but simply from a design perspective, I'm not quite sure I'm digging it. What do you guys think?
Want to know where the Wi-Fi is? Check out Jiwire Wi-fi Finder, which lets you use your iPhone to enter your location and then displays a list of Wi-Fi hotspots. Choosing a location from the list brings you to a screen where you can get more information, view the location on Google Maps, or call the location immediately. We especially like the ability to only search Wi-Fi locations for free.

We need to have a talk.
Listen, the horned one knows you're really sick of hearing about the iPhone. Heck, Jonathan Ive is probably sick of hearing about the iPhone.
"If I hear one more word about what a design genius I am I'm just going to scream!"
The good news is, it's going to get better. The rest of the year will be more Mac-centric as Apple starts shipping new hardware and Leopard is released in October. Jobs has alluded to some great new hardware announcements in the near future and visions of tiny … Read more
Regardless of what P.T. Barnum said, we can't legitimately call the buyer of this $100,000 iPhone a sucker because it was all for charity. An anonymous bidder won the phone (pictured here), the first sold at Apple's Soho store to Spike Lee, on eBay as part of the "Keep a Child Alive" auction to raise money for children suffering from AIDS in Africa.
Speculation about iPhone 2.0 is already well underway, and the latest tidbit involves an iPod Nano-like phone supposedly scheduled for later this year.
Kevin Chang with JPMorgan Chase in Taiwan thinks a slimmer iPhone is on the way, based on conversations he had with unnamed sources and an Apple patent filing for a slim device that uses an input method similar to the familiar iPod scroll wheel, Reuters reports. This would allow Apple to ship a cheaper version of the original iPhone, he said.
I'm not sure what to make of this one. The iPhone's main selling … Read more
