- Amazon decides to acquire flexible touchscreen company. Wonder why?
Yes, you may be seeing the end of boring black and white e-ink on your beloved Kindle at some point in the near future. I could be wrong though, maybe black and white multitouch screens will be all the rage. The possibilities!

- New Apple patent may bring touch sensitive bezels to future iPads.
I actually am quite addicted to using hot corners functionality on my beloved copy of Mac OS X for various tasks. This seems like it would be an absolute perfect fit for the iPad's overly thick bezel.

- Telltale might be porting all of their games over to the Mac in the near future.
This is great news for Mac users if this turns out to be true. It's a little annoying to switch over to my Windows partition just to enjoy these games. There are also rumors that we may see Telltale on the iPad as well.
- Adobe decides to chime in on the iPad's lack of Flash capability.
The lack of Flash support for the iPad - and, for that matter, for the iPhone and iPod touch as well - is Apple's doing, not Adobe's. Adobe, for its part, has been eager to get Flash onto Apple's handhelds for quite some time.
- Nintendo President not impressed with the new iPad at all.
Satoru Iwata would have liked more 'surprises' from Apple in regards to their latest product. Also, he doesn't think that 3D video gaming (a la Avatar) will ever catch on. Now go buy a Nintendo DS.
- Ten things missing from the newly released Apple iPad.
Don't worry, I'm sure all of these issues will be resolved by the next revision of the iPad. FYI, you may be seeing more iPad stories on GeekLikeMe as I have been out of touch for the past few days and sort of missed iPad mania.

- Sixteen games that make gaming on the iPhone worthwhile.
Some interesting choices for fellow iPhone owners looking for some gaming recommendations. I'm a bigger fan of casual games these days so I can heartily agree with the Peggle and Bejeweled 2 inclusions. I'd also like to throw Scramble (free app) which is a lovely waste of time as well.
- The top eleven unlikely features of the Apple Tablet.
Given the amount of secrecy around this product one of these unlikely features may actually turn out to be true. Alright, all things considered it won't probably won't turn into a robot ...or will it?

- Wired would like to let you know just what to expect from Apple's tablet unveiling.
At tomorrow's Apple media event you will probably see the unveiling of a tablet-like device of some kind, most likely a tablet. That's just my guess. I'm not an authority on the subject by any means.

- Apple sends out invites for press event scheduled for January 27th.
The text on the colorful invite simply says 'come see our latest creation'. Most of the major news sites (especially Fox News who claims they have a confirmation from an inside source) are convinced that the we will finally get a glimpse of the non-fabled tablet in the very near future.

A sales promotion for Intel retailers offers a chance to win a MacBook Pro featuring a Core i5 processor during the month of January, though such a machine does not currently exist in Apple's lineup.

- Leaked photo of Apple tablet glass component surfaces on the Interwebs.
If this leaked photo (not pictured - click over to source link to view) turns out to be the real deal it looks like the fabled Apple table may take the shape of an oversized iPhone after all. I'm a little doubtful on this one.

- Apple's app store crashes through the three billion download mark.
What, no contest for the three billionth download in the app store? What gives? It's not like they've slated out other things to do over there in Cupertino besides contests and giveaways. Wakka wakka wakka.
