In Soviet Russia the phone controls you.

Nice ending to the video:

"If the world had been communist, you all would have iPhone... it is only phone that give me the kind of control I like."

Silly Stalin

I loved that jab at the iPhone.

solidslash says:

Could anyone please share the .apk? It says it's incompatible with my phone. That's kind of weird.

spiry2sick says:

find it a bit distasteful... he killed millions of Russians, never mind the other eastern europeans... what idiot would want to have him in his pocket?

solidslash says:

You're clearly taking things way too seriously. I'm Polish and I don't think such a silly app would hurt anyone's feelings. Get over it.

spiry2sick says:

So am I. It doesn't hurt my feelings, but some things shouldn't be joked about. It's a question of respect, nothing else. Sadly, respect and manners have gone cheap nowadays, anything is considered ok as long as it is trendy and "fun". Clearly the fact that it does not hurt your feelings doesn't mean it won't hurt others, especially because people died.

dude, how much time needs to go by before people get over it. It's fine.

Flyer00 says:

Plus, if it cleared Apple's AppStore screening, they obviously feel it's been long enough where this won't offend many people.

TimmyB says:

And, Springtime For Hitler was written by Mel Brooks-- a Jew! Lighten up, spiry. It's ok to laugh, even when the creature is not so lovable. :)

spiry2sick says:

If it's ok to laugh, where's the pocket hitler ?

TimmyB says:

Still in his bunker, being worked on by the same engineers who ran my beloved Palm into oblivion!

spiry2sick says:

CM7 on Touchpad works really well ;-)

TimmyB says:

That's already on my radar! If webOS is truly dead (as opposed to "mostly dead"), I am looking real hard at Android ICS as my next device. If I like it, I might actually switch my touchpad over, as well. The video of the progress of CM7 was pretty impressive, to say the least.

spiry2sick says:

I've been using it since alpha1, it has improved a lot. It's is mostly usable with very few quirks here and there, the biggest being the battery life which is about half that of the webos though. Still, Plex works like a dream. I have a nifty streaming solution on my touchpad finally :)and for £89 only :)

TimmyB says:

Never ceases to amaze me how a bunch of coders, working on their own, can do such amazing things, but teams of professionals working for the company that built the product can't figure out how to add a simple feature!

spiry2sick says:

Indeed. Webos is great, shame about the number of apps available and a few usability issues (fixable with preware patches mostly). I hope they will port ICS to a Touchpad.

TimmyB says:

Well, spiry, if I DO go this path, count on me to hound you for useful information! :)

Andy in Indy says:

Rory put Hitler in the closet.

Daedalus says:

He was in charge of Apple for the last several years...

Wicell says:

Hey hey hey my Greek friend, sounds like you're calling Steve Jobs hitler...

sanriver12 says:

someone with a sense of humor?

Valter.VX says:

dowloading! :P

vinny jr says:

Must Have. The man speaks the truth, doesn't he???????

skeeve says:

I don't see any of the other "Dead Dictator Series" apps. Are they separate apps? It'd make a lot more sense to have it all in one app.

packisback says:

I don't think those really exist. I was looking forward to Navigate with Napoleon.

trooper54 says:

love it

Sniper1087 says:

bah only yes and no answers, very limited, ill stick to speaktoit assistant

aj.ghodke says:

apparently gaddafi is already dead!!.. perfect timing.. :D

davidr521 says:

Yep, so it'll be called "Gravebound Gadhafi"?

(too soon? O_o)

Only works on Android 2.2, wtf. Think about the captivate users

Glenuendo says:

I'm really looking forward to the "Francisco Franco's Guide to Spanish Cuisine".

davidr521 says:

"In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead."

TimmyB says:

Awesome! SNL, 1970's, correct?

Indeed!

Fozee says:

Castro is not a dictator, was that supposed to be a bad joke?

Wicell says:

Umm, I'm pretty sure Fidel Castro was the dictator of Cuba, he wasn't a president that's for sure.

Fozee says:

If you haven't been to, live in, or have strong family ties to cuba, you have no business making that claim. Nobody had really thought about removing him because he delivered Cuba from a terrible dictator that the U.S. supported.

go back to history class man. Castro saved cuba from a real dictator. Honestly, propaganda has killed your intellect. Just because somebody is a communist, that doesn't mean they're a terrorist. KAY!?

Wicell says:

Whoa whoa whoa, Now you're just shoving words in my mouth, I never once said anything about his communism, I never even came close to mentioning terrorism. So how the hell is propaganda killing my intellect when all I said was he was a dictator? =\ I think you need to go back to school and learn that dictator and terrorist is not a damn synonym. Jesus I wish you could say that to my face 'cause I'd stomp you to the ground then blow your brains out with the so called "killed intellect" I have.

Fozee says:

Internet tough guy eh? Who's the violent fascist now?

jayq says:

Done have an iphone? To bad for you! Hahaha.... I have an android but since this dec thinks iphone is the only phone worth having he could xxxx it cause I won't even try this BS.

TimmyB says:

Jay, I think you missed the punchline. He said, in a communist world, the iPhone would be the ONLY choice, as it is the one that allows him to have total control. A shot at Apple's ecosystem of controlling everything.(?)

Whoooosh.

CeluGeek says:

Ugh, I thought you guys were going to report about the Iris app for Android that aims to do what Siri does for the iPhone 4S, but you got this instead...

Iris will eventually be decent. Sucks balls though right now imo

Flyer00 says:

Really? How do I get Iris to suck balls?

davidr521 says:

By installing it on the iPhone. :D

davidr521 says:

Actually, looks like it already does. Seems to take forever. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X420muJzTy8 :(

When he says Stalinism I think of apple.
