Griffin HELO TC iPhone-controlled helicopter on sale now [Video]

Griffin told us to expect its low-cost iPhone-controlled HELO TC helicopter in time for the holiday shopping season, but it seems the company just couldn't wait to put the R/C toy on sale. $49.99 gets you a rechargeable chopper bristling with LEDs and, while lacking the video streaming of something like the Parrot AR.Drone, has far less of an impact on your bank account.

In what we're guessing is a mockup accident, the new ASUS "Behind the Scenes" video showing the PadFone's design journey shows Microsoft's IE8 getting some surfing playtime, where we'd normally expect to see the regular Android Honeycomb browser.

Dieter Rams: Apple designs are “a compliment” [Video]

Famed designer Dieter Rams has described how, rather than being offended by the oft-commented similarity in themes between Apple's hardware design and his own work, he takes it as a compliment that Jonathan Ives and the rest of the Apple team follow the same core tenets as he did. Speaking to Co.Design, Rams - whose uncomplicated and exceedingly elegant designs still managed to look fresh and modern, despite dating back several decades in some cases - recalled being approached while at a party by an indignant Philippe Starck claiming "Apple is copying you!"
