    Those of us who have ever*experienced*the horrors of public transport would be well aware of the fact that you need to simultaneously listen to your music and be aware of what's going on around you.*<a href="http://uneasysilence.com/archive/2010/09/15328/" target="_blank">Thanks to a little app called Awareness</a>, you life just got a whole lot easier.

    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.

    <a href="http://www.slidetoplay.com/story/new-app-a-day-blind-world" target="_blank">Blind World is a shiny new iPhone game for your perusal</a>. The gameplay is alright, but frankly it's a little too crash-happy for my liking.

    It's a well known fact that iPad sales are*cannibalising*the rest of the market, but if you're in the market (pun not intended) for a new laptop, <a href="http://iphone.appstorm.net/general/hardware-news/should-you-buy-an-ipad-instead-of-a-macbook/" target="_blank">should you buy an iPad instead of a Macbook</a>?

    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.

    App Store success stories. We've all experienced them, and for such stories like <a href="http://www.gamepro.com/article/features/216646/the-origins-of-angry-birds/" target="_blank">the origins of Angry Birds</a>, such insights are a revelation to how people hit it big on the App Store.

    Mozilla aren't making a phone, but they do have a few ideas on how to make phones better. You can check out their concept, entitled Seabird, <a href="http://mozillalabs.com/conceptseries/2010/09/23/seabird/" target="_blank">over at Mozilla Labs</a>.
