  • Mobile Browser Showdown: N95's Opera vs iPhone's Safari. Winner: Opera

    There has been some dispute over the speed of the browsers on these next-gen phones. N95 users say that the 3G connection makes all the difference, iPhone users say EDGE is just fine when you’ve got a great app like Safari. As it turns out, they seem to go at about the same speed in their natural habitats, but when you throw a 3rd-party browser into the mix, it’s all over. Opera… Read More

  • iPhone video recording works, in theory

    http://www.crunchgear.com/video/player.swf?movie=iphone.flv Monster and Friends, a group of iPhone hackers, have created a 10fps video recording application for the iPhone. It records at 2-megapixels and offers only basic functionality at this point but it’s definitely an impressive proof-of-concept. im posting a binary that will record 5 seconds of video and replay it. there is no ui… Read More

  • Goldman Sachs "makes stuff up" about Apple's 2008 plans


    Yeah, just stuck an LCD on there somewhere. Naw, doesn’t matter where. Apple TV with an LCD screen? Small iPhone memory upgrade? Apparently the Goldman guys have been snorting a bit too much nose candy at their holiday parties and are spouting all sorts of nonsense about Apple’s 2008 plans. Their first prognostication? Among them is a second-generation iPhone currently in the… Read More

  • Next Windows version to have 'iPhone blowing away' touch features

    Better than this? Ha! When was the last time you were “blown away” by anything Windows did? With the next version Windows (code-named “7,” aka the one after Vista), you may be blown away by its touch features? Wait, “touch features,” sorta like the iPhone? Yes, apparently. A Microsoft blogger let it slip yesterday that the next version of Windows will… Read More

  • Breaking: iPhone, Apple TV to receive updates in 2008

    If rumors from Apple Insider are to be taken as truth, next year will see two new iPhones from Apple. The first will be a minor upgrade, likely nothing more than a storage bump from 8GB to 16GB, matching the iPod touch. Later in the year, though, will see the iPhone 2, which will offer the lacking 3G and likely have an updated design. To both of these, we must give a qualified “No… Read More

  • Orb interface coming to iPhone, iPod Touch soon?

    The original boxless Slingbox, Orb might just be unveiling an iPhone/iPod Touch version of its excellent-and-free interface in the next couple of days. Orb has apparently found a way around Apple’s RTSP port cockblockery by streaming your goodies as MP4 files. You’ll also be able to use Orb features with Winamp to "turn your home media player into a very limited kind of… Read More

  • Going into the jungle with your iPhone? Ruggedize the sucker

    If you absolutely must traverse the Amazon with your iPhone, you should probably do something about keeping it, you know, dry and clean, that sort of thing. I don’t think waterproofing was on the feature list. Well, H20 Audio has the solution: this pretty cool-looking iPhone case. It’s impact and “element” resistant, though I’m not sure if that refers to weather… Read More

  • PlayStation emulator for iPhone/Touch

    Ummmm… yeah. No thanks. My fingers don’t move that way, really, and I think I’d rather not be touching the Buster Brothers as I try to move them around and around. Give me a few more motion activated games like 15 and I’ll be happy, but please keep your PS emulators to yourself, iPhone programmers. [psx4all NEWS] Playstation has arrived on the iPhone and iPod Touch! Read More

  • A CRY FOR HELP, FIVE IFONES NOT TWO


    Dear Lovely,
    I am writing this letter with due respect and heart full of tears since we have not known or met ourselves previously. I am asking for your assistance after I have gone through a profile that speaks good of you. I will be so glad if you can allow and lead me to the right channel towards your assistance to my situation now. I will make my proposal well known if I am given the… Read More

  • What is the iPhone of personal media players?

    It struck me kind of funny that the web site Physorg.com ponders aloud whether or not the Cowon Q5W is "the iPhone of Personal Media Players" because of its "long list of features that far surpasses other gadgets of its kind." I can kinda see where they’re coming from but it just sounds a little odd to call a media playing device what basically amounts to a… Read More

  • Apple shuts down Asian iPhone sellers


    Insert John Pinette joke here. Electronics retailers in Asia are now receiving notices from Apple advising them not to sell unlocked iPhones or face a $1,000 fine. According the Straits Times, retailers received a sternly-worded email from Apple legal advising them that selling “parallel” handsets with the SIM lock disabled is illegal and will result in litigation. It seems… Read More

  • JailBreak: Over 1 Million Served

    Web based jailbreaker AppSnap has executed its code for iPhone liberation over 1 million times. The hack makes it possible to run unsanctioned applications on your iPhone, such as an eBook reader or Blackjack for phones of firmware 1.1.1. It doesn’t free your phone from the AT&T network, though. The hack works by exploiting the way the iPhone’s firmware handles TIFF images… Read More

  • Apple's upcoming sub-notebook to cost around $1,500?

    Two things here. First, it’s being reported on CNBC that Apple’s sub-notebook that’s supposed to be launched at Macworld next month "is expected to be priced aggressively at approximately $1500," according to AppleInsider. The device will be 50% thinner than the MacBook Pro, use NAND flash memory instead of a hard drive, and "it will definitively arrive at… Read More

  • Unlocked iPhones popular on the other side of the pond

    Euro Telecom Orange is saying that 6,000 of the 30,000 iPhones they sold during the opening five days were bought unlocked. Apparently, people are more than willing to spend the extra 250 euros to skip the hassle of a locked carrier (phones with contracts went for 499 euros, unlocked 750 euros). Hopefully a two-tiered launch will become the standard over here in the states, where we had little… Read More

  • Download files in Mobile Safari

    A new “plug-in” from hachu lets you download files straight to your unlocked iPhone. This lets you download zip and tar files as well as save MP3 files to the internal memory. So what does that get you? Not much, but thanks to Erica Sadun, you can now use the SendFile application to send files from the Downloads folder in your iPhone, creating a fairly cool little way to download… Read More

  • Google for the iFones now available

    Surf on over to Google, iFones fans, and feast your eyes on the new mobile version of Google. You’ve got Google Reader, Gmail, your Calendar, and even Docs all nicely arrayed in Joe Hewitt’s (TC thinks) iPhone sexiness. It’s good to own the best phone on the market today, isn’t it? via TC Read More

  • Google Pre-Launches New iPhone Interface

    We heard a rumor that Google was going to launch a new interface for users accessing the site via an iPhone in the next few days. But an anonymous tip let us know it actually launched without any warning or announcement this evening. If you visit Google.com from an iPhone, you now get a menu of services to choose from – home (search box), Gmail, Calendar, Reader and More (docs, sms… Read More

  • iPhone browser count rockets past WinMo

    I guess people can’t be having that hard of a time inputting web addresses on that fiddly keyboard, because the total people browsing with an iPhone has passed up the years-old WinMo for an impressive 0.09 percent of the browser market. Just below the iPhone, Windows CE accounts for 0.06 percent, and just above it is Windows ME, amazingly enough, with 0.43 percent. This could change… Read More

  • iPhone Delivers: Bigger Browsing Share Than Windows Mobile

    When Steve Jobs first announced the iPhone, he promised that it would revolutionize the mobile browsing experience. Roughly 1.4 million sales later it barely registers than more than a blip on global mobile phone sales charts, but its users a making their mark. According to figures from Net Applications, the iPhone now holds a 0.09% browser market share; a small figure perhaps but remarkable… Read More
