Love Last.fm? You may like its eponymous iPhone app. Not familiar with the service? Do yourself a favor and try AOL Radio or Pandora instead. It’s not that the app is bad, per se, it’s just confusing and inconsistent, especially compared with the competition.
So the iPhone and iPod touch lack an FM tuner. So what? AOL Radio fills the gap and then some, serving up some 350 stations of streaming-radio goodness. It’s a fantastic app for music and talk-radio fans, and it doesn’t cost a penny.
If you do, the latest app store offering is perfect for the super-rich iPhone owner who has everything. The I Am Rich app created by Armin Heinrich, displays a glowing red icon on your iPhone to help remind you, just how much better you are than the rest of the huddled masses.
We would review this app, but we spent our last $999.99 on really nice solitaire game.
UPDATE: I Am Rich has disappeared from the App Store. Maybe someone bought it?

TechCrunch is reporting that Foxconn, the Taiwanese electronics company that makes all those little iPhone 3Gs, is ramping up production of the device to 800,00 units a week. The information comes from a source close to Apple.
If the information is correct, Foxconn would produce 41,600,000 iPhones a year. That number shatters the estimated 25 million iPhones predicted to be produced over the life of the device.
With Apple planning to release the iPhone 3G in more countries, they may need the extra couple million.
