Many of us don't have the luxury of living in homes that provide a fireplace for the family to gather around and keep warm - or even a living room stereo to play Frank Sinatra on. Luckily, for $1.99, you can grab the Virtual Yule Log application at the iTunes store, featuring holiday tunes from its catalog, including our hero Frankie, as well as Peggy Lee and Nat King Cole, to get you into that holiday mood.
Sure, it won't keep you warm, but you'll have pocketable holiday spirit anywhere you go. Feeling a bit under the weather? Poof! Instant holiday fun! For the curious, it's basically a 30-minute video with music in the background. Here's a short excerpt for those who want to experience the power that is fire in all of its Christmas glory:
If the application looks at all familiar, you're spot on. It's made by Moderati, the same company that designed the Virtual Zippo Lighter for teenagers at U2 concerts.
