Oh yes they are folks, ringtone icons snatched straight from the newly launched iTunes 7.3 resource folder. First noticed by reader Michael (and confirmed by us) in the comments -- nice work, bro. So what could the little guys be doing there, after all, there isn't a Ringtones tab in any of the iP...

See that picture on the right? It comes straight from the iPhone's Q&A page. Go ahead, count the iTunes tabs... we'll wait. Right, 8 tabs. Up until now, Apple's only been showing the iPhone's iTunes sync with 6 tabs: Summary, Info, Music, Photos, Podcasts, and Video. So what can we expect on t...

Got leopards? Officials in western India have discovered a novel approach to capturing wayward individuals without having to resort to live bait or potentially dangerous pit traps. The angle is pretty clever, pile some critter sounds on a mobile -- cows and goats are favorites -- plug it into some...

Forget personalized ringtones and ringbacks, the next tween obsession has arrived in the form of Push Ringer, which "enables a caller to push an outgoing ringtone to the receiving phone -- allowing the caller, not the called person -- to set the tone." We're assuming you're either elated or sighing ...

Forgetting to put your phone into silent mode can often have embarrassing consequences, the scale of which depends on your setting and the quality of your ringtone. Say, for example, your Rocky theme ringtone goes off in the middle of an anti-boxing lobby group meeting. That's at least a 9 on the ri...

Motorola's BUZR could be years away, if we ever see it at all, so what's a mischievous, cellphone-toting student to do when phones are bann...
