    Think Different, provided you don’t need to think differently by recreating an SDK from fumes and hearsay, install third-party apps, and try to maximize the potential of a device you paid up to $500 for. Read More

    Cali Lewis reviews Signal for iTunes

    Good old Cali “It’s not syphilis” Lewis takes a look at Signal for iTunes on GeekBrief TV today. The poor lady has some sort of weird allergy, which is why she’s using gloves, but apparently their conductive so she can use Singal for the iPhone, a browser-based iTunes control that lets you pick music and movies via the touchscreen. We also get a shout out, which makes… Read More

    What you need to know about v1.1.1 software for the iPhone

    Oh hies, Apple fanboy. Did you know that your precious iPhone can now stream your music to a Bluetooth headset? That is, of course, you upgraded to version 1.1.1 and your iPhonez wasn’t h@ck3d, which by the way works fine now even if it was bricked. Learn how to downgrade from 1.1.1 to 1.0.2 here and then you can bring back your bricked iPhone to life. Read More

  • Copy And Paste On The iPhone

    The following is a concept video produced by LonelySandwich.com demonstrating cut and paste on the iPhone. It’s a feature that’s sorely lacking on the phone; it can do so much but without copy and paste it can never really be a 100% computer replacement (although for me it’s a 75% of the time laptop replacement.) It’s a old mockup so I don’t think it will be… Read More

    iLife integration on iPhone?

    I’m not so sure what to make of this, but a MacDailyNews reader came across a placeholder page in the iLife guided tour section specific to the iPhone. Now there isn’t any real substantiating evidence to spark any wild and erroneous rumors, but it’s all in the URL and a QuickTime video is evident although it’s missing for now. Am I going to have to take back every… Read More

  • iPhone update 1.1.1: the aftermath

    iPhone update 1.1.1: the aftermath

    And so it begins. After Apple released the iPhone 1.1.1 Update yesterday, there are conflicting reports of seamless activations and happy customers mixed in with cries of anguish from AT&T customers locked out of their iPhones as well as a collective shudder as unlocked iPhone users watch the boards for news of the coming 3rd Party App Holocaust (they opened for Metallica in 1998. They… Read More

    Some Apple Geniuses Restoring Bricked iPhones

    You know damn well that when you unlocked your iPhone, it’d only be good until the next software update. Don’t kid me. You knew it. Now your iPhone is an expensive paperweight and Apple says you voided your warranty. Try to take it to an Apple Store or send it back to Apple and you’ll get denied. Lucky for you, some Apple employees working the Genius Bar have compassion and… Read More

    Update Bricks Hacked iPhones, Kills Kittens


    Possible results of updating your iPhone. Over the past few weeks Apple’s stance on hacked and modified iPhone software has drastically shifted from “do as you please” to a full on blow to the nuts earlier today. Although the iTunes WiFi music store is included in the update, users are reporting SIM errors when the device is used with anything other than AT&T. There… Read More

  • Ok, Wait, Le Backup: iPhone Not Coming to France's Orange Afterall? Huh?

    Ok, Wait, Le Backup: iPhone Not Coming to France's Orange Afterall? Huh?

    I’m going to write this whole post without making a pun about Apples and Oranges. The point is, though, that we’d heard that Orange would be the French carrier for the froggy version of the iPhone. Orange had planned on announcing the partnership, and later did. Here’s the stickler though: Apple and Orange had never actually settled on the economics. They’re apparently… Read More

    iPhone Firmware Update May or May Not Brick the Hell Out of Your iPhone

    I’m a Digital Life right now so I can’t test my hacked, smacked, and cracked iPhone, but Gizmodo has a great thread about the iPhone unlock and the vagaries of the new firmware which includes the Wi-Fi Music Store and a few other improvements. As far as I can tell there are no issues with the upgrade, but who knows for sure. At least we know that the original FUD wasn’t quite… Read More

  • Truphone Demos First Ever VoIP Over Wi-Fi Call On The iPhone

    This video is with a Nokia device and iPhone. Not the actual demo given between two iPhones. And John Biggs’ head has exploded. What’s cool about this is that you don’t need a SIM unlock so no worries about bricking your phone until Apple gets pissy enough to do something about it. Calls are 100 percent IP-based seeing as how they go from one iPhone over Wi-fi to the… Read More

It will be on the market the 29th of November and announced on the 24th of September during the Apple Expo in Paris.

    Nokia Marketing Team Reaches Out To Angry iPhone Users

    Nokia’s marketing department did some quick thinking yesterday. They’re targeting iPhone users who are angry about the fact that they paid $200 more for their phone than they would have if they waited. They’ve taken out ads on Google that suggest users check out Nokia’s new Mosh mobile social network. The ads, which appear for searches on “iphone price… Read More

    Now That The iPhone Can Be Unlocked, Will Apple Try To Block The Hack?

    For those who might have missed it: Engadget has the scoop on a new software solution that unlocks Apple’s iPhone, allowing it to be used on any mobile carrier worldwide (presuming of course they run a 2G GSM network). The creators of the iPhone hack (iPhoneSimFree.com) claim that the hack is “restore and upgrade resistant”; essentially reseting the phone and/ or loading… Read More

    Todays completely unsubstantiated rumor comes from Rediff News, a usually well respected source of news based in India. Rediff is reporting that the Google Phone is set to be launched in 2 weeks time! The GPhone is said to simultaneously launch in both Europe and the United States, with the only thing standing in Google’s way being US regulatory approval. The report goes on to claim… Read More

    Interview With Facebook's Joe Hewitt, iPhone God

    The Facebook iPhone application was a one-man job. Joe Hewitt joined Facebook when the company he co-founded with Blake Ross, Parakey, was acquired last month. He quickly got to work on the company’s iPhone app, which was released just a month after he joined the company. Hewitt has been one of the key figures in figuring out some of the hacks around iPhone applications – dealing… Read More
