What cracks me up about this is that I have a real one of these old TASCAM 4-track recorders, and it still works great. I don't use it much since I got the BB-1000CD (portable recording straight to SD card and also burns CDs). You can grab the new TASCAM app in the app store here ($9.99). Check out my home recording article here (from our summer issue) for more home recording tips and tricks.
An external keyboard is a good way to flaunt the power of iPhone Bluetooth, but to be effective, it has to be compact enough to be carried around. Maybe you would like a keyboard that doubles as a case--hmmm, what would that be like? Oh yeah, and flips out like one of those trippy flip phones with a thumbpad too! Woah...! The TK-421 from ThinkGeek.com is just what you have been looking for...
I love BAM bookstores, mainly because of the excellent discount racks where I often find great books for as low as a dollar. They also offer some really good in-store discounts. BAM has a large on-line ebook collection of course, but up until recently, you needed a Nook device to download books. Now they have a free iPhone reader that will let you read ePub books, PDF docs, and works with Adobe DRM content!
Haven't gotten round to reviewing it, but Baloonia seems to be getting good comments on the App store. Looking for a pipe puzzler to help pass time this holiday, this might be the game you were looking for. You can grab it here for the practically universal price of 99 cents...
See my post here to learn why you need a WikiReader (especially if you tech blog). Though it's not directly iPhone related, it is a perfect gadget gift for the geek in your life.

"Los Angeles, California - Kung Fu Panda Holiday Storybook App, based on DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda Holiday, is packed with original movie images and audio clips featuring the movie's vocal talents; including Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman.
Infinite Dreams, makers of the excellent K-Rally (which I still play)--a Pocket PC and Symbian classic (see a sneak peek of the upcoming K-Rally 3-D iPhone version here)--the iP version looks awesome. If you are interested to see what a dev dude can cook up in like a day, check out the free (with ads) version of Plasma Globe. It's not earth-shattering, but it is free, and been downloaded only a million times... Kind of a trippy, psychedelic version of Asteroids!
At least 3 of us here at iPhoneLife (maybe more) are drinking the mophie JP Kool-Aid, and why not, considering the great charging solutions they have to offer?! Anyhoo, if you were looking for a juice pack charging cover for your iPhone 4, look no further... mophie just announced the juice pack plus for iPhone 4G! I have heard that soon a version for iPod touch 4 will be coming as well. Read on for gory press details, and links...

After loading Redshift onto my iPod touch, I was a little miffed! The app has a gigantic amount of cool astronomy stuff under the hood to write about, and I figured it would take me until 2011 to finish doing a proper review. I hunkered down with grim resolve, and found quickly that hours were flying by in fascination and fun. This app has plenty to draw both hard core astronomy buffs and casual star-gazers as well!
