Apple’s patent spree continues with the latest filing of patent for drop protection mechanism in the iPhone. The patent describes advanced mechanisms such as “mass shifting” and “thrust” to slowdown the fall and reduce the impact on the iPhone surface. Other protection technology includes “contracting buttons” to prevent them from damage and a “gripping” mechanism so that the iPhone holds on to the headphone cable if it drops. Other protection systems mentioned in the patent include a technology that would collect and store information about the drop of the iPhone. This data would then be used by Apple to decide how the device falls which would be useful to design a sturdier product.

The Google Plus social network has kicked into high gear, despite a limited number of available invites over the first few weeks. Starting today it’s even easier for iOS users to share with Circles, follow a Stream or do rapid-fire messaging with a Huddle: the iPhone app for Google+ is now in the US store.
The free app supports the Stream, Circles and Huddle features; it’s just now downloading on our iPhones so we’ll check out the detailed options shortly. Enjoy, Plussians!
A few quick notes: the app is truly iPhone-only, and will not install on the iPod touch or iPad. Some users running the iOS 5 beta report crashes, which is unsurprising but worth mentioning. Also, it’s very difficult to search for the app in the App Store (one would think that the world’s largest search company would know that ‘+’ is a common search modifier and tricky to include in a literal search string); the easiest way to find it, short of the direct link, is to browse the list of all the apps published by Google.
Thanks to MediaKat for the tip.
Update: The app was updated within an hour of release. Fastest update we’ve ever seen. From the app’s description it appears to have been an issue on Apple’s end (ouch!):
We discovered an issue with the version of the iPhone Google+ App that was on the App Store. When we launched, the App Store started serving a previous test version of the App which didn’t have the stability and fixes that the latest version had. It started serving the correct version a little later. If you downloaded within the first 1 hour 40 mins, you may have downloaded the older test version.
