Parrot's AR.Drone was the surprise hit of CES 2010, breaking the French company out of its Bluetooth prison and instead taking to the skies with an iPhone-controlled quadricopter. Reminiscent of something out of a William Gibson novel, the AR.Drone promises to best all R/C helicopters before it, with its combination of four-rotor stability and onboard autopilot intelligence. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

A collection of T-Mobile customers have reported receiving Micro SIMs instead of the Mini SIMs they ordered through the mail. The picture below this paragraph is a photo of such a Micro SIM -- lookin good, yes? Now, if you take note of all the devices in the market today and think, think, think, you'll note that these are more than likely intended for the iPad or the iPhone 4. Then there's the fact that T-Mobile stores were also found to be selling iPhone cables today, you've gotta be guessing on an imminent release of something lovely.

Reports in the middle of last month announced the 300,000 milestone marker for Apple's App store, saying that this was the amount of apps currently in the store. Since then, these numbers have been disputed because of the number of inactive Apps sitting around doing nothing or not quite ready to go quite yet. However, what with an average of 5,452 iPad apps and 12,218 iPhone apps per month since April being released, the number of inactive apps has become negated.
The 3,2 model iPhone, aka the most likely candidate for the Verizon release, is reported to be at the AP field test stage, which is basically the last stage of testing before retail release. This stage includes final hardware and nearly-final software. And you know what's exciting? It contains a SIM card slot. Oh joyous day, the possibilities. This slot points toward the possibility that this phone could be the one wizards and ancients have foretold about for generations: the iPhone which could be the CDMA + GSM/HSPA device to support Verizon, AT&T, and more.
