    Mophie Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 3G up for pre-order

    Coming this spring from Mophie is the Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 3G, which is essentially the Juice Pack but with a top cover to fully encase your iPhone. I’d be excited by this concept, but I’ve been using FastMac’s iV for the last month and it’s significantly better despite it’s girth. Read More

  • Apple Rejects Obama Trampoline iPhone App, Leaves Us Puzzled

    Apple Rejects Obama Trampoline iPhone App, Leaves Us Puzzled

    Video game developer Swamiware was surprised to see its latest iPhone app rejected by Apple, and so are we. The application was a harmless game that let you select a known U.S. politician (both republicans and democrats) and have him/her jump a virtual trampoline. You could use the head to pop some balloons with the White House or the Oval Office in the background, do some acrobatic flips or… Read More

  • iPhone firmware 2.2.1 jailbroken [Updated]

    iPhone firmware 2.2.1 jailbroken [Updated]

    Just FYI – 2.2.1 is jailbroken but upgrading will totally bork your unlock. UPDATE #2 – The real deal iPhone dev team QuickPwn (Windows/Mac) and PwnageTool (Mac only) apps are now available. They have yet to SIM unlock the new baseband (02.30.03), so tread with caution and read directions especially close if you’re planning on liberating your handset. Read More

  • Stanford Students Release A Cool Batch Of iPhone Apps

    Students from Stanford’s Fall 1008 iPhone class CS193P created a nice crop of apps that are now available or will be soon for the iPhone (see our Stanford Facebook apps posts here and here). A list of them is here, and some of them I’m going to keep on my phone. My favorite is iDiscover, which gives you random content you think will be interesting (text, videos, apps). You rate… Read More

  • Update on the Mophie iPhone 3G Juice Pack [Update]

    Update on the Mophie iPhone 3G Juice Pack [Update]

    I’ve never felt so dirty in my entire life. I gave the Mophie Juice Pack nothing but praise last year and now I feel used and abused. It shouldn’t surprise me, really. The first review unit that was sent to me basically broke after a few hours. It managed to recharge my iP3G once and then failed to do so ever again. I assumed it was just a faulty unit that wasn’t caught during… Read More

  • What would a four-core iPhone do for its gaming capability?

    What would a four-core iPhone do for its gaming capability?

    What if the iPhone had four cores? (If I were a rich man!) Such a rumor has, apparently, been circulating around the shell of MacWorld. With four cores, Apple could turn the iPhone into a legitimate gaming platform. Read More

  • 2009: Products I Can't Live Without

    At the beginning of each year I traditionally publish a list of my favorite startups and products. This is the fourth year I’ve done this – previous lists: 2006, 2007, 2008. You guys get to pick the winners of the Crunchies – this list is all mine. This is a list of the products I tend to use daily. Some are for work (WordPress, Delicious, Zoho, etc.), some are for fun… Read More

    iPhone 3G unlocking software updated; should work now (hopefully)

    Yellowsn0w, the illustrious iPhone 3G unlocking software, dropped with the Times Square Ball yesterday, but the first beta edition didn’t work for many. Hopefully the updated 0.9.4 beta from the iPhone Dev Team should resolve those issues and allow all those Jesusphone 3Gs to be released from their AT&T shackles. So if our step-by-step guide left you frustrated and furious, give… Read More

    AT&T selling refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G for $99

    Consumer Reports' Top 5 Smartphones list mentions neither the iPhone 3G nor G1

    Say hello to the worst list you’ll read all day. It’s Consumer Reports’ idea of the Top 5 Smartphones, and I think you’ll agree that it misses the mark. There’s the Samsung Blackjack II, the T-Mobile Wing, the Motorola Q9C, the T-Mobile Shadow and the BlackBerry Pearl Flip. I’m not lying when I say that I’ve heard of, at most, like two of those phones… Read More

  • Review: Mophie Juice Pack for the iPhone 3G

    Review: Mophie Juice Pack for the iPhone 3G

    Mophie’s Juice Pack for the iPhone 3G is without a doubt a must-have if you can swallow the high price tag of $100. But I’d gladly pay the extra $100 knowing that I can leave the office or my apartment and gallivant around town without fear of having to find a power outlet by mid-day. Read More

    Wal-Mart to sell $99 4GB iPhone?


    The Wal-Mart/iP3G rumor has been swirling for months now and the latest tid-bit states that Wal-Mart will indeed sell an iPhone3G, but it’s going to be a 4GB version for $99 with a two-year agreement. Plausible? Sure. Read More

    Amazon iPhone app: Take photos of items then buy them moments later

    Spending your fiat money from the comfort of your iPhone is even easier, now that Amazon has released an application (“App”) for Apple’s little wonder. The mundane functions are as you’d expect: you launch the app, then you can browse and buy goods from Amazon just as you would from your computer. What’s worth singling out is this little photo-takign feature. Read More

  • Joost Launches A Broken iPhone App

    Joost launched their iPhone application on the App Store this evening, giving users access to 46,000 Joost videos, including major television shows and films. The iPhone has a built in YouTube application already, giving them a serious head start when it comes to video on the iPhone. But archrival Hulu doesn’t yet – giving Joost a little room to maneuver for now. I’m sure… Read More

    Flickr’d Are you ready for some iPhone 3G tethering, that is, being able to connect your laptop to the Internet by using the iPhone’s 3G network? Sure is useful when you’re at a café or whatever that, shockingly, doesn’t have Wi-Fi. Moving on. Some details have leaked to MacBlogz regarding AT&T’s plans for iPhone tethering.

    The Myvu Crystal now works with your iPhone 3G

    Ever use the Myvu Crystal? It’s a pair of glasses that has a built-in VGA-quality display. The idea here is that you connect the Crystal to your portable media player or cellphone and you can take immersive audio/video with you wherever you go. That’s the idea, but like I said I haven’t used them so I can’t speak to how well they work. Doug seemed to like it, though. In… Read More
