  • iPhone 1.1.4 firmware not coming anytime soon, Tiny Code was just joshin

    Someone named Kelly, pictured to the left, over at Tiny Code is a big d-bag. “Tiny-Code never had any relations with Apple, Inc. or any other division of Apple. Never had the new firmware or any pre-SDK pack. Certainly never signed any NDA. I find it interesting that a simple joke on the front of a minor at best Installer.app repo can cause so many wakes. It is equivocally funny that… Read More

    [photopress:114.jpg,full,center] Remember, like, a few hours ago when you updated your iPhone or iPod Touch to version 1.1.3? And then, like, a few minutes later you Jailbroke it? Yah, that was rad, but we’re going to have to do it all over again soon if the rumormill has anything to say about it.

  • Rumors: Alienware working on Android-based iPhone killer?

    [photopress:_9e28_transformers_cellphone_concept.jpg,full,center] Apple is a computer company before all else, this much is fact. The iPhone is far more computer than phone, and besides its design, that is why it’s so popular. It reinvented the cellphone industry in no small way, and it happened because Apple isn’t a phone company. Neither is Google, but the Android OS is on… Read More

  • Buddy Beacon expands beyond Helio to other carriers, iPhone, and Facebook

    [photopress:sluttypeter.jpg,full,center] One of the most-hyped, if under-used, features on Helio phones is the Buddy Beacon. Using the phones’ integrated GPS, you can use it to update your friends as to where you are, and request they do the same. The downside is they all had to be Helio members. But Helio sold Buddy Beacon to uLocate, who’s expanding the application to Sprint… Read More

  • Dr. Martin Cooper on the future of "handsets"


    Engineer and all-round-nice-guy Marty Cooper told some gathered reporters and industry folks that he likes the iPhone… and Samsung and Motorola phones, but for different reasons.

    George Hotz, aka Geohot, aka the kid that unlocked the iPhone way back when, aka the kid that traded an unlocked iPhone for three regular iPhones and a Nissan 350Z is at it again.

  • DLO lays an egg with new iPhone, iPod Touch speakers

    [photopress:portspeakers_horizontal_lrg.jpg,full,center] I travel a lot, it’s part of being a famous blogger, and I usually watch video on my iPod when I’m flying, because I can’t watch that one episode of Friends again without wanting to kill Matt Perry. I usually find a way to prop up my iPod so I can watch Beerfest without my arm going numb. In my hotel, I usually arrange… Read More

  • Speculation: What if Apple doesn't release a 3G iPhone?

    [photopress:no3gip.jpg,full,right] Interesting bit of speculation over at Macenstein. That is, what if Apple doesn’t release a 3G iPhonethis year, if ever? That would annoy people who said “non!” to the current iPhone in hopes of buying one that’s not stupid slow. At the same time, it may play right into both Apple and AT&T’s hands. Take AT&T. The corp… Read More

  • Rumor: iPhone, iPod Touch to get price drop

    There comes a time when I just want to vomit and never ever look at certain topics in the tech/gadget world. That day has come for Apple. Frankly, I’m just sick and tired of the rumors about this and that that seem to pop up every single day. Last week there was a rumor that Apple would hold an event at the end of this month. And now rumors say the iPhone and iPod Touch will see a $100… Read More

  • 'HiPhone' looks mighty familiar, almost iPhone-like

    All hail the new king of fake iPhones. It’s $239.00 (plus $15 shipping) direct from China, has two (count ’em, two) SIM slots, triband GSM, is unlocked and carries no contract, comes with two (count ’em, two) batteries, and I have no idea how much storage is onboard. Could be nothing, could somehow be a terabyte of flash memory. Check out this hot demo video, complete with… Read More
