The new iPhone should be out this fall, and per usual, there’s a lot of talk about this next iPhone coming in more colors than just black and white. The iPod touch already has several color options, why not the iPhone, right?

Let’s pretend that you’re the person in charge of the decision. What do you think? Should the next iPhone come in more colors than black and white, or is it just fine as is? Let us know in the poll to the right!

For some of us, a game isn’t a game unless there’s some gunpowder involved. Thankfully, hidden amongst the clutter of word puzzles, birds you sling at pigs, and other grenade-launcher-lacking yawners, the App Store offers some true gems in the heat-packing department. Even better? Plenty of them are free. So we’ll spare you the search and give you the low down on a few of our favorite free or super cheap gun-toting games.

As soon as WWDC was announced, we all knew that the latest version of iOS would be announced — it was just a foregone conclusion. But what we didn’t know, was how much it was going to change how we work and what we do. Then the beta testers got their hands on it, spilled the beans to everyone, and now we know all of the facts and info about the latest version that we can. And yet, what we don’t know yet is how it will affect us personally.

Well, you don’t know, but I do. I’ve got iOS 5 running on one of my devices right now, and I’ve gotta say, it’s changed my world completely. I don’t think it can be released fast enough, frankly, and I can’t wait for it to be polished up and perfect for general consumption. Want to know how it’s changed my world and how it’ll change yours? Hit the jump and I’ll tell you.

It’s that time of day again, when I like to kick back on my bed and watch the latest episode of “The Big Bang Theory” on Hulu.  The only source of illumination now is the glow of the monitor sitting on my desk across the room.  It is all quite nice until the neighbor’s dog starts barking and I need to get up and out of bed, walk over to the computer and turn up the volume.

My first solution to this dilemma is the obvious one- bring my bluetooth mouse and keyboard to bed with me.  This is fine, but without a surface for the mouse it can be cumbersome to manage and the keyboard seems superfluous when all I need to control is the volume.  If only there were some way I could control the mouse, the volume, the play/pause functions and when the show ends, put my computer to sleep… What!?! TouchPad for the iPhone/iPad can do all of that and so much more!?! That’s great!

The iPod has come a long way since 2001. The second generation model sitting on my desk doesn’t have a color screen, weighs enough to be used as a self-defense aid and does little else than play music (though block breaker was a pretty cool feature at the time).

My iPod Touch on the other hand is an astonishing technological feat rivaling that of the iPhone. However, there are definitely a few major features that iPhone users enjoy that I miss out on. Fortunately, several app developers are on the task of closing this feature gap and have significantly extended the functionality of the iPod Touch.

Today we’ll look at ten apps that help make your iPod Touch a lot cooler by mimicking some of the basic features found on iPhones.
