The Encyclopaedia Britannica, which is the most "scholarly of encyclopaedias" according to Wikipedia (heh), is about to release a new iPad app. It costs about £1.30 a month to subscribe to their knowledge base, which is cheaper than the £750 odd for the print set but far, far more expensive than Wikipedia's freeeeeee.
Flickr, who should have jumped on the Instagram filter train earlier, has finally put out an Android app and along with letting you scan photostreams, upload pictures, share photos to other social networks, you can also take filterized pictures. Woot!
Wilnelia Rivera Caraballo, a 19-year-old girl, got a little tipsy and felt empowered to rob a store. So she armed herself with a toy "Uzi-type" gun, a clear plastic mask and went to work. Too bad there was a keen worker who outwitted the dimwitted half of Bonnie and Clyde.
Jonason Pauley, who looks like the spitting image of Toy Story's Andy, is making a re-make of Toy Story. Only it's the same exact movie except real toy versions of Woody, Buzz and the gang are used instead of Pixar's wizard CGI.

Amy Shackleton is a 25-year-old artist who paints without paint brushes. No, silly, it's not finger painting or graffiti or spilling paint and calling it a day, it's real masterpieces that look amazing. She uses squeeze bottles to make them.
It's not hyperbolic to say that Apple introduced multitouch to the masses with the iPhone. Apple thought that they could trademark it. Unfortunately for them, the United States Patent and Trademark Office thought differently. They've denied Apple the multitouch trademark.
VLC used to be the premo app for anyone who wanted to play any sort of video (movies, tv shows, etc.) on their iPad. Sadly, it was pulled from the app store. Luckily, there's It's Playing. It's like VLC except you can download it RIGHT NOW.
Incase makes…headphones? Yep. The iPhone case maker and all around Apple accessory extraordinaire is dipping their toe into audio and like all the gear you've come to expect from Incase, the detail and build quality is awesome. But what about the sound?
