Yep, someone is getting fired by that. Mitt Romney’s official iPhone app has a massive spelling error that is creating a headache. The app was meant to be called “A Better America” but some poor developer accidentally wrote “A Better Amercia.”

If you’re a fan of Steve Jobs, a collection of classic interviews are now available on iTunes at no cost. All of the interviews were filmed at various AllThingsD conferences.

A new iPhone case has surface called the CM4 that takes the term mobile wallet very seriously. The case has what appears to be a leather wallet on the back so you can carry cash, credit cards, and IDs with your phone rather than having to carry a wallet and your smartphone. The case fits the iPhone 4 and 4S.

A new iPhone stand and charger has landed on Kickstarter. The device is called Twig and it’s smaller to fit comfortably in a pocket. It has no lengthy cords to connect to a USB port and two other legs that are flexible. The design allows you to move the front two legs out of the way for plug into USB port when desired.

The person behind the project is Jason Hilbourn and the device is offered in a variety of colors. I like that the charger can double as a stand with flexible Gumby-style legs. The project just launched and has 59 days to go.

It’s seeking $50,000 to come to market and so far has $3024 pledged. The project ends on July 27 and expected delivery in September 2012. Any pledge $18 or more to get a Twig.
