Most people are not going to have the experience of actually defacing public property (not that I am encouraging doing so). Seems the iPhone is always providing new and unusual ways of expanding our life experiences, and it’s certainly better to throw virtual rocks than real ones. iVandal is a tagger starter kit for defacing your iPhone photo collection, but I wish I could use it to highlight screenshots instead.
INCASE has just released its new Monochrome Slider Case series for Fall 2009.

The hardshell case has a soft touch finish that feels comfortable in your hand while protecting your iPhone from impacts and scratches.
For those of you who love live music, the iConcertCal app is for you. I can't count how many times my husband and I have been out on Saturday night and he'd say "Let's go find somewhere that's playing music." and then we look at each other blankly. This little app is well-worth the $2.99 price tag so that we never have to struggle with that question again.
iPhone Life magazine has begun to post on a regular basis on Twitter. You'll find tips, tricks, news items, links to our blogs and other great information relating to the iPhone and iPod touch.
Do you love match 3 games? Are you tired of the same old flat interface and bored with the worn mechanic of swaping two items to make a match? Cylinder is the game for you, then. It takes the concept of match 3 games to the third dimension and makes it as addictive as Bejeweled - the game that really started the genre - was. This is one match 3 game you really should take for a spin.
The Facebook app is one of the most popular free apps, with an amazing 343,000 ratings. Version 3.0 was released late this week. So if you're into social networking, and like doing it from your iPhone, head on over to the App Store and get the latest version.

Are you looking for a way to quickly and easily digitize your receipts for electronic storage?
JotNot for iPhone can help. Simply take a photo of the receipt, process the image with JotNot and then save it as a PDF, JPG, or PNG. It works with receipts, documents, photos, and white boards. You can then save your image, email your image or send it to Evernote.
Evernote allows you to share these digitized images with others or store them in your Evernote notebook. Evernote also makes it easy to sort notes or search for a specific note.
This is yet another great development. London Bus and Metro Paris Subway are the first apps to bring augmented reality to the iPhone. As you point your camera at the scene around you, specific information related to your location appears on the screen — superimposed over the live image. Pretty amazing. There's a video demo on YouTube that gives you an idea how it works.
Well, I guess I shouldn't judge — you never know about these things. But an article on Mobile Crunch makes a fairly good case that a successful PR firm is faking app reviews as a way of promoting their clients' apps. The company denies it. But it does seem undeniable that some of the reviews for new apps are planted. I realized when reading this article that when I look at app reviews, I always subconsciously dismiss certain ones that sound phony. There's just something about them that doesn't sound genuine. And usually a surfeit of exclamation marks. Plus, they appear so quickly after the app is released.
The war has not started yet, but the armies are gathering their forces. Apple is building a tablet based off the iphone OS and the rest of the world will be using Android. So how what will the first skirmish look like?
