  • God, I don't ask for much but let this be real someday

    This would be one of those devices that’s so simply ingenious that you can’t believe you didn’t think of it first. A Foleo-esque iPhone/iPod Touch snap-in housing where the face of your device became the trackpad. I want one and although Apple likely won’t be announcing this exact device today, maybe one of you enterprising modders can make it happen. Most of the… Read More

  • Google updates iPhone interface

    Jeez, get a room you two. Google’s all like, “Oh Apple iPhone, you’re so pretty. Sit at my table won’t you? I’ve upgraded myself to run much faster and sexier on your Safari browser. Look how fast Gmail loads now.” Then Apple’s all, “Hey Google, sorry I haven’t called in a while. Thanks for the upgrade, you’re looking real good. Have… Read More

  • Google reports holiday iPhone traffic-splosion


    ‘Twas the season for giving iPhones, apparently. Around Christmas, there was a surge in iPhone Google traffic that briefly put the device above all others, despite only having a 2% market share. Whether this was due to sons and daughters flexing their new Safari muscles, or to bored father-in-laws everywhere surreptitiously googling at the dinner table, I think we’ll never know. Read More

  • iPhoneCam – use your iPhone as a Wi-Fi webcam

    I can’t decide whether this is useful or not. First, it must be said, it’s cool. Everyone wanted video chat with the iPhone despite the orientation of its camera, and some mirror-based products have addressed that problem. They’ve made this app so that there’s no configuration necessary, it’ll show right up in iChat or Skype. The question is whether iPhone owners… Read More

  • China Mobile wants nothing to do with iPhone


    iPhone? Not iPhone? China Mobile was all like “No thanks, Apple” in talks about bringing the Apple iPhone to China. No reason was given for the break in negotiations but Bloomberg suspects it was the 20 to 30 percent of data fees Apple asks for each iPhone subscription. This does not rule out “further cooperation” but who really cares? China has plenty if iPhone… Read More

  • Google Now Offering iPhone Version Of iGoogle

    Spotted by Google Operating System is a new iPhone specific interface for Google’s personalized webpage product iGoogle. The page can accessed directly from http://google.com/ig/i, although iPhone users should be immediately redirected to this page when trying to access iGoogle. The new iPhone interface is a step up from Google’s previous offering of a mobile specific page at… Read More

  • El Rumor: SlingMedia working on iPhone/iPod Touch version of Sling software

    [photopress:SlingPlayer_BlackBerry_Pearl8120_Favorites.jpg,full,right] A blog I’ve never heard of, Electric pig, claims that an “extremely senior source” (they’ve fans of All the Presidents Men) at SlingMedia has promised an iPhone and iPod Touch version of the SlingBox software. If true, that would mean you’d be able to watch your at-home TV channels… Read More

  • Amazing article explores iPhone's history, development: totally worth the read

    [photopress:wiredmagiphone.jpg,full,center] Wired easily has the best article on the iPhone you’re ever going to read on this day or any other. It’s about the history and development of the device, from Steve Jobs sensing that his iPod business wasn’t as secure as his stockholders would like (wireless providers and their MP3-playing cellphones were a big concern) to the… Read More

  • Family GuyDVD with iTunes-compatible video files shipping

    [photopress:familyguyh264dvd.jpg,full,center] Fox is now releasing DVDs that include iTunes-compatable H.264 video files, as was rumored last month. The first such DVD, the “Blue Harvest” Family Guy episode, isn’t scheduled to ship until next week, but several copies have already made their way into fans’ hands. (Amazon lists it for $16.09, so there doesn’t appear… Read More

  • iPhone pig docks from China

    Biggs, Devin and I trekked over to the Sands to try and get into some AVn mischief, but, sadly, we were denied. Instead of scantily clad women we found iPod/iPhone docks from China. There were pigs and something resembling Inky. I’m completely delirious and need to go home. Read More

  • FlyTunes brings Internet radio to your iPhone

    [photopress:ft11.jpg,full,center] FlyTunes sounds good. It’s a new service for cellphone and other Wi-Fi devices that tunes into Internet radio stations, turning your staid iPhone into a wherever-you-go-radio. In that sense it’s sorta like satellite radio, though I’d be wary of calling it a “satellite radio killer.” In any event, the company insists that caching… Read More

  • FlyTunes to Bring Internet Radio to Your iPhone

    A new service called FlyTunes and announced today at CES in Las Vegas will make it easy to play internet radio on your iPhone or other cellular/wifi-enabled device. The free, ad-supported service won’t be released until January 21st (you’ll be able to get it here as a download…not sure how that’s supposed to work for the iPhone; looks like it will need to be hacked).

  • Is CES becoming too big for its own good, reducing its effectiveness?

    [photopress:cesbad.jpg,full,center] For companies showing off new products, just how effective is the Consumer Electronics Show? Reading the New York Times today, you get the impression that the answer to that question lies somewhere between “not effective at all” and “barely worth the effort.” Some people feel that CES has gotten too big for its own good—more… Read More

  • JBL On Stage IIIP for iPod and iPhone

    Product Name: JBL On Stage 200ID/400ID, Duet 200
    Description: The JBL On Stage 200ID and 400ID are a pair of iPod speaker/docks. (Please try to stay awake for this anyway.)

The Duet 200 is identical to the On Stage 200ID but it lacks an iPod dock and instead takes… Read More

  • Coming soon to iPhone: Copy and Paste


    The iPhone will soon join us in the 20th century by offering cut and paste. Sources at MacScoop are saying that the new firmware will offer copy and paste functionality as well as faux-GPS, the ability to send mass SMSs, and a multi-page home screen. Next iPhone software update to allow copy-paste [MacScoop] Read More

  • CG Greats: The things we couldn't live without last year


    I’m hung over and I’m really sleepy, so I’ll keep this short. 2007 was a fairly dead year for gadgets. The real 8 million pound gorilla this year was the iPhone, and that’s why it leads the pack this year as our top ten gadgets of 2007. Feel free to add your own picks in the comments but let’s get started, shall we. I’ll try drink some Gatorade and… Read More

  • iPhone-ize your WinMo phone: What all this about a sow's ear?

    While this isn’t as sexy as the HTC Touch interface — dig the cube, man — this new piece of software from PointUi mimics some iPhone functionality while hiding the hard mess of WinMo6 under a pretty wrapper. As Michael points out, maybe if I had this on my Shadow I’d answer my phone more, but I doubt it. We’ll give it a whirl once the vodka passes out of my… Read More

  • 1.1.3 is real and it's fabulous

    http://blip.tv/scripts/flash/showplayer.swf?file=http%3A%2F%2Fcreationsnet%2Eblip%2Etv%2Ffile%2F567816%2F%3Fskin%3Drss%26sort%3Ddate&fullscreenpage=http%3A%2F%2Fblip%2Etv%2Ffullscreen%2Ehtml&fsreturnpage=http%3A%2F%2Fblip%2Etv%2Fexitfullscreen%2Ehtml&showfsbutton=true&brandlink=http%3A%2F%2Fcreationsnet%2Eblip%2Etv%2F&brandname=cre%2Eations%2Enet&showguidebutton=false&showplayerpath=http%3A%2F%2Fblip%2Etv%2Fscripts%2Fflash%2Fshowplayer%2Eswf Whoa. 1.1.3 icon moving in the flesh. Pretty cool stuff. It looks like this is the real deal and folks like Nate and the inventors of iBrickr got this in order to help the unlock process prior to the launch. Could this be a renegade Apple employee, tired of having to explain to his friends why their Solitaire app stops working every upgrade? Nah. What I suspect is happening is that someone got their hands on some development firmware prior to MacWorld’s SDK announcement and this basically shows us what to expect in a few weeks. They keep talking about signed code over on Gizmodo so that meets a Mac developer doesn’t want to lose his license. Oh, and it breaks all third-party apps and activations.
