Don Banks: NFL's have-nots improved, Chiefs roll the dice, more Saturday Snaps

Let's hear it for the NFL's downtrodden. The Bengals, Bills, Browns and Lions look like the biggest winners coming out of the draft, writes Don Banks. Plus, more Day 3 Snap Judgments.

BlackBerry Bold Touch makes brief appearance on RIM's website

As you may have have been able to discern from the multitude of leaks that have surfaced over the past few months, RIM is apparently getting set to debut a new touchscreen-equipped BlackBerry Bold at BlackBerry World next week. While still not completely official, that's now been all but confirmed by RIM itself, which briefly featured the teaser pictured above on its website before pulling it for reasons unknown. As you can see, RIM apparently couldn't help itself and promised that it will be a "bold step ahead," and it appears that the phone is unsurprisingly running BlackBerry 7, which until recently was better known as OS 6.1. Of course, that's hardly the only news we're expecting to hear at BlackBerry World, and you can be sure we'll be there to brave the puns and bring it all to you.

[Thanks, Matt]

HBO Go hits iOS and Android, free for subscribers

Don't ditch that premium cable subscription just yet. The long-anticipated HBO Go app just hit the iOS App Store and Android Market, bringing original HBO series and a variety of blockbuster films to your mobile device. You'll need an HBO subscription with your cable provider to get past the login screen, but unlocking all that the service has to offer using our Verizon FiOS account took just a second, and we were off and running with Avatar less than a minute after launching the app. We'll have a full hands-on later today, but if you're an HBO subscriber with an iOS or Android slab, head over to your device's respective store to download the free app.

[Thanks, Jason]

Panasonic, Yahoo, more admit defeat, sign deal with Klausner

It's easy to mock the little guy when he takes a handful of giant corporations to court. Such litigious overzealousness usually gets tangled up or tossed out altogether -- Klausner Technologies, however, is laughing all the way to the bank, with a stellar track record taking on some of tech's biggest names over the past few years. To date, the company has scored wins in visual voicemail patent battles with Apple, Google, Verizon, LG, and Vonage -- the company also struck a deal with Sprint, though presumably with less teeth-pulling. This week, Klausner added four more big wins to the list, inking deals with Panasonic, Yahoo, Qwest Communications, and Avaya in the wake of suits against the tech firms. The company still has ongoing battles with RIM and Cisco that will hopefully stay civil. We'd hate to see someone send a visual voicemail they'd regret later.

White iPhone 4 thickness creates issue for case makers, owners

By now you've probably seen the latest spectacle to consume the white iPhone 4: it's thicker than the black model. The image above illustrates the point using a piece of lead from a mechanical pencil. So what, you say, in righteous indignation to a device that shipped ten months late. Well, the size difference creates a potential consumer issue since cases (at least the good ones) are manufactured against the tight tolerances supplied by Apple. We've confirmed ourselves, that an Incase slider that fits a black iPhone 4 just fine has to be forced into place on the new white model. Unfortunately, Apple's own spec page doesn't highlight the change in thickness (measured at 9.5mm by TiPb). Instead it still shows a 9.3mm depth with a tiny disclaimer stating, "Actual size and weight vary by configuration and manufacturing process." The result is confusion -- will this case fit or won't it? -- which is never a good thing for consumers.

But why is the white iPhone 4 thicker? Phil Schiller mentioned that Apple needed to add extra UV protection among other tweaks, in an attempt to reduce the "unexpected interactions" between the white cover and the internal components. As such, Apple apparently needed to sacrifice some slimness for a better functioning white phone. In the end, we have what looks to be four different size / button configurations that must be considered when purchasing a shrink-wrapped case for your white iPhone 4, black iPhone 4, white Verizon iPhone 4, or black Verizon iPhone 4. Good luck with that.

[Thanks, Jon]

Pete speaks at Design 2.0

Yeah, we know it's a little late now, but if you happened to be in San Francisco last week you might have noticed our own Peter Rojas was one of the speakers at Design 2.0, a Core77 sponsored event that found Pete on the receiving end of a round of applause for sparing the audience the obligatory PowerPoint presentation. Oh, we also heard his Q&A session went over pretty well, too. Well done Pete!

John Lasseter Says There Will Be No Marvel/Pixar Movie

Only minutes after Disney bought [1] Marvel, the questions began [2]: might we ever see Marvel Universe characters rendered by Pixar? The animation company has demonstrated an affection for Marvel-style heroes with The Incredibles, which with a bit of tweaking could easily have been a Fantastic Four story. And early statements on Disney's part suggested the team-up might be a possibility.

Yet despite the chain of business relationships that link both Pixar and Marvel to Disney, the chance of a Pixar/Marvel movie ever happening still seemed slim, and possibly too much to hope for. Indeed, according to John Lasseter, it's not going to happen.

Speaking with IGN [3], John Lasseter had the following exchange:
Disney has been great. Bob Iger is phenomenal. I'm Chief Creative Officer of Disney Animation as well, and with Pixar it's like, "Keep doing what you're doing, guys." It's a filmmaker-driven studio. All of the ideas come from the filmmakers themselves. Working with the filmmakers on ideas.

IGN: So there probably wouldn't be any kind of chance of seeing that kind of team-up then?

No, not at Pixar. We have The Incredibles, so we've done superheroes here ourselves and so we have that kind of history with Brad Bird doing The Incredibles.
Realistically, there probably wasn't reason to expect that a Pixar/Marvel movie would ever happen; each company is very much established doing its own thing. This even though Disney head Bob Iger suggested that some discussions took place very early on when he said,
We?ve talked about [a Marvel/Pixar team-up] internally. Pixar boss John Lasseter talked to the Marvel guys about this and they all got excited about it. We think there?s ultimately some exciting product that come of that. Sparks will fly!
What happened? No way of knowing. More likely any opportunity that might have existed was squashed by business entanglements rather than creative dissonance.
