  • Telescoping lens for iPhone camera, why the hell not?

    Yes. Yes. I say yes to weird-ass accessories. This one’s only $19, too.

  • SimulScribe settles in "Visual Voicemail" lawsuit

    The whole trail is kind of convoluted but it seems there is a company, Klausner Technologies, with a patent for the same concept as SimulSays, SimulScribes visual voicemail solution for RIM and WinMo as well as Apple’s Visual Voicemail.

  • iPhone guitar – quick, someone tell me if this works


    I don’t have a JesusPhone, so I can’t say for sure, but this thing looks mighty cool. I don’t think you’re going to be hitting Van Halen heights of guitar heroism with it, but you might be able to get to Family Guy “douchebag” levels. Someone install this right now and tell us all if it works. It’s been tested with 1.1.1 but as I believe we are… Read More

  • iPhone 1.1.3 firmware downgrade complete, still unbricks you, SDK docs leaked

    Just a quick note to all those with bricked iPhones — you can upgrade to 1.1.3, unbrick it, and then downgrade to 1.1.2.

Fear not, though, a software hack will… Read More

  • iPhone upgrade liveblog

    I’m honestly too scared to upgrade to 1.1.3 and I don’t want an AT&T account so we’re all going to have to live with other update liveblogs until the proper jailbreak comes out.
