Next time you visit SeaWorld make sure to keep one eye on the dolphins and the other on your Apple products.

It turns out one of the most intelligent species of the ocean is just as crazy about iPads and iPhones as humans are, as seen in a new video from Orlando, Florida where a dolphin jumps out of his pool to steal a spectator’s iPad while she’s taking a photo.

Apple may be working to make its iPhones more waterproof than ever, but that doesn’t help much if your handset gets accidentally dropped into the ocean.

That’s what happened to Miami Heat dancer Teresa Cee, who recently lost her iPhone while diving with dolphins in the Bahamas. Fortunately, one friendly dolphin apparently outed itself as an Apple fan (or a Teressa Cee fan) by diving down to retrieve her handset.

Before I had an iPhone, I used to game everywhere with the dual-threat of my Nintendo DS and my trusty Sony PSP. The DS I’ll still occasionally break out, but the bulky PSP has been in a drawer for years, a victim of its bulk.

A new jailbreak project might mean that I finally get to play some of my favorite PSP games once again. PPSSPP is a new PSP emulator for iOS developed by the guy behind the incredible N64 emulator, Dolphin, and while it’s in very alpha state yet — just look at that frame rate on Wipeout Pure! — this is clearly a project with a lot of possibility.

This is Dolphin. It’s a neat web browser for iPhone. You could easily be forgiven for saying: “What’s the point of having an extra browser? Mobile Safari does everything I need.”

Which is true. Safari does everything you need. But try Dolphin for just a few minutes, and you’ll discover a browser that does everything you need but in a totally different way. A way that’s much better suited to using on your phone while you’re moving around.
