iPhone apps of the week

Apple's iPhone App Store grows every day with new free and paid offerings. The lion's share of apps (and clearly the most popular) have been games, now with 626 digital time wasters at the time of this writing.

Hmmmm, what Apple news can I talk about today?

If you haven't been living under the proverbial rock, you probably already know the hype surrounding Apple's iPhone has built up quite a bit over the last few weeks. It seems like every news site has something to add to the iPhone fray, and certainly, as a technology site, you can get a lot of information here at CNET. Since today is the big launch for the iPhone, I might as well give all of you a couple more things... Read More »
