That’s the question that appears to be on a lot of minds this week. Originally expected to hit the App Store on December 8, 2011, OnLive itself has been keeping pretty silent on the progress of the app’s travels through Apple’s iTunes App Store approval system. With iTunes Connect expected to shut down for an 8-day holiday on December 22 (this Thursday), we wouldn’t advise placing your bets on seeing the iPad version of the service this year, just yet.
What you see above is what Samsung calls its “Smart Case” – a case which not only has the ability to provide the firm’s Galaxy Tablet with protection, but can also be rolled up to act as a support stand for the tablet.

If you can cast your mind back to last month, you may remember we reported that Facebook’s ‘Timeline’ feature would be coming to both the iPhone and iPod touch fairly soon. If you happen to have an account with Facebook you’ll likely already familiar with what Timeline. In short, Timeline is designed to tell a story. But, not just any story – your own story.
