    I've never seen the attraction of a physical keyboard for my iPhone —*primarily*because the software keyboard is just that good. Those pining for something a little more tactile, however, can take a look at*<a href="http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/cellphone/e66e/" target="_blank">an integrated flip-out keyboard case for iPhone 4</a> over at ThinkGeek.

    Everyone loves the App Store. Everyone loves infographics. What happens when you put App Store statistics in a pretty graph, add some*over-stylised*text, and call it a day? <a href="http://www.meettheboss.tv/articles/?contributorFullName=matt-buttell&amp;mediaTitle=a-bite-of-the-apple&amp;articleId=510" target="_blank">This particular App Store Metrics infographic</a>, that's what.
