I recently had the opportunity to chat with Antonio Meze, the extremely talented designer of Meze ebony wood headphones. Antonio Meze is both a classic-modernist designer as well as a musician and audiophile, all of which is apparent the moment you put on a pair of his headphones. The quality of craftsmanship is simply exceptional, as is the quality of sound!
As I've reported in the past, two Steve Jobs biographical films are in the works and slated for theatrical release. But now a third biopic is coming: iSteve, a spoof scheduled for online release April 15. Created by the humorous website Funny or Die, the movie stars Justin Long, who was the "stand-in" for Jobs in the famous "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" TV commercials.
Game Centered features roundups and in-depth reports of the best in iOS games and related news. Among the App Store's myriad games, it's all too easy to overlook some of the greats. Each installment of Game Centered will take a close look at a select few worthy of special recognition.
A slew of rumors circulated last week, the most notable of which said the iPhone 5S will launch June 20 and be available early July. According to CNET, the provenance of that rumor is the Japanese website MacFan.
As a Newton user, I was very excited this morning to learn about this great case from Hex. Check out the accessory company's press release below for details on today's special promotion.

1. iStabilizer Monopod ($34.95)
Have you ever wanted your arm to be a little longer for a self-portrait or a group shot? So have the folks at iStablizer, who created an extendable monopod for your iPhone or iPod.
Made of airplane grade aluminum, this sturdy stick expands over three feet in length and is fully adjustable. An elbow joint at the end of the rod lets you adjust the camera angle.
I posted last month about "Apple's secret eBay store," which was selling refurbished iPads and iPods at prices below Apple's own refurb store at Apple.com. The great deals apparently disappeared over the weekend though, as the store — called Refurbished Outlet — is no longer available. The page only shows an FAQ about Apple Certified Refurbished products. The store's profile is still visible.
I almost always prefer a good indie game over franchise games from a big publisher. I like to see the little guy win (in and outside of games), so any news forwarding that agenda is worthy in my book.
Chunky Pig, a marketing company for mobile game development (started by games industry veteran Nick Malaperiman), kicked off a contest at GDC to give game developers a chance to get their iOS game ideas noticed by premier publishers in the business (and even win an iPad mini). Enter the contest at Chunky Pig, or read below for the full press info on the event.
Ferrari, which produces a classy selection of headphone, is on the road again with a new offering: the Ferrari R300 ($432) active noise canceling headphones for iOS devices. While I think they're well worth the cost, you can find them on Amazon for $349!
The Scuderia Ferrari racing team was the inspiration for these iconic headphones, with the aerodynamic air vents and traditional grille of the GT cars. The diamond-shaped grilles are designed for durability and quality. The luxuriously soft ear pads convey maximum comfort.
