A new Colbert Report app means iPhone users never have to be without “The WØrd.” The $1 app, released Monday by Comedy Central, includes every “WØrd” video done by hyper-real talking head Stephen Colbert so far and will be updated weekly. The clips are arranged alphabetically and can be sorted by air date and popularity. (Wired10/26)

Despite the introduction of new smartphones such as the Android-based Droid and RIM‘s brand new BlackBerry Storm2, Verizon Wireless would like nothing more than to add the iPhone to its network, according to remarks made by Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg during the company’s earnings call with analysts. It’s just not up to them. “This is a decision that is exclusively in Apple‘s court,” he said. Verizon reported net income of 41 cents/share, a 30% drop from a year earlier. The company ended the quarter with 89 million wireless customers, 3.3 million high-speed internet customers and 2.7 million FiOS TV customers. (Cynopsis10/27)

Much of The Wall Street Journal‘s online content is subscription only, but the dogged could find ways around that, notably via its free mobile applications. The Journal has moved to close that loophole, flipping the switch today on a plan to make many articles on its BlackBerry and iPhone applications available only to subscribers. (Mediaweek10/26)
