iPhone lights a fire
Burn, baby, burn
A video of a burning fire is now available as a premium application for the iPhone, but it remains to be seen if even iPhone users are stupid enough to pay $2 to listen to advertisements for Christmas albums.
Televised fires are surprisingly popular, with offerings on DVD and even broadcast in some areas, but putting the same experience onto an iPhone beggars belief. Capitol Records reckons a pocket version of the idea is the ideal platform to promote seasonal content - punters pay $2 to see a burning fireplace and listen to seasonal hits, which can then be purchased with a couple of taps on the screen.
Not that Capital has neglected the interactive capabilities of Apple's uber-phone - tapping a log generates sparks, as shown in this demonstration video:
Recent events have demonstrated that iPhone users won't just buy any crap you throw at them, much to the surprise of some developers. But this application comes from Moderati, the company responsible for the Virtual Zippo Lighter, so perhaps they know the kind of crap that will stick. ®

Just because it has some good features, doesn't make it a good phone. Where do you think that Apple got the idea for a mobile phone in the first place? Some fanboi arguments are quite sound, but you just look like an idiot.
The clue's in the name. Personal computer, doesn't get much realer than that, does it? Twat.
isn't it, how the Jesusphone Apple haters go on and on about whatever is itching their backsides currently and yet the "BIG BOYS" Nokia, Sony, LG, RIM, are copying the iPhone like mad!
'Twas ever thus!
"content no longer available", just seems to do that when you leave it for a while. Refresh the page and the embedded 'tube video will be alright again.
Interesting you would consider a PC to be a "real computer".....
Do the Crackberries and other smart phones...
...have similar apps like these? You never hear about them. Why not? Aren't those phones just as easy and fun to muck around with?
