    Breaking: Some third party vendors already have iPhone, iPod Touch SDKs!?

    Hot on the proverbial heels of the news that Apple will use digital signatures to ensure quality and security in the forthcoming iPhone and iPod Touch SDKs, we get word that Apple is leaking pre-release versions of the SDK to certain third party vendors far in advance of the official launch. Electronista gets credit for the scoop, though there’s no word on which companies this might be. Read More

  • iPhone and iPod Touch's developers to verify identities with digital signatures

    iPhone and iPod Touch's developers to verify identities with digital signatures

    We know that in the near future, we’ll have real, authentic, genuine third-party app support for iPhone and the iPod Touch. There’s no secret that I’m a fan of the hardware that Apple has developed, and I’m looking forward to the opening of the systems. And it’s looking like Apple will use an ID scheme to keep track of who’s writing what, to ensure quality apps… Read More

  • Why I'd trade my vote for an iPod touch

    Why I'd trade my vote for an iPod touch

    About a week ago, Drudge ran a headline something to the effect of: SHOCK: NYU STUDENTS WOULD TRADE THEIR RIGHT TO VOTE FOR IPOD TOUCH. While I wasn’t part of the poll even though I’m in the journalism building pretty much all day (posting to CG, natch), I think it’s safe to say I’d give up my right to vote for an iPod touch. Why, exactly? Because I’d get more out of… Read More

  • Help-Key: How to Jailbreak your iPod Touch with 1.1.2

    Help-Key: How to Jailbreak your iPod Touch with 1.1.2

    The biggest problem I had with the iPhone, some readers will recall, was the actual phone portion. I thought it was a fantastic Web device and a super iPod, but the phone side didn’t tickle me at all. That’s why when the iPod Touch was announced, I was all over it. The hardware is fantastic, and while Steve and company have announced that early next year third party app support would… Read More

  • iPod Touch update lets you add calendar events

    iPod Touch update lets you add calendar events

    I’m like Kramer. I keep all my appointments [pointing at brain] right up here. If I did keep a calendar of some type, maybe I could use the one on my iPod Touch. Good to know that, thanks to the new 1.1.2 firmware update, I can now add events to the aforementioned calendar instead of just staring at events that were added from my computer. I’ve tried it in real life on a real-life iPod… Read More

    iPhone Edition of 'mundu' handles IM with ease

    Previously available by invite only, mundu is now available to the rest of us. It allows you to use your Yahoo!, Google, MSN, and AIM accounts with ease. Emphasis on “ease.” I was up and running and logged in on my iPod Touch in under a minute. Very, very simple stuff here. You’re able to be logged in to more than one service at a time and you can make your own status messages… Read More

  • English kid's iPod Touch ad idea purchased by Apple

    Oh man. Nick Haley grabbed some clips from Apple’s website, mixed in some sexy-time music, and got an e-mail from Apple saying "we’ve seen what you have produced and we’d like a chat with you." The commercial has been redone "professionally" by Apple’s ad agency but is said to deviate little from the original, save for some more polished editing and a… Read More

  • You so silly, Apple!

    You so silly, Apple!

    OMG! So Apple, like, totally made a blunderama today on its website ya’ll. If you surf over to the Apple Store and check out the product page for the iPod Touch sleeve. You’ll see for $29.95, you get a product that fits 80GB and 160GB iPod Touch models. Now, although a typo, this could be the real thing. Basically, it means Apple has confirmed the next models of the iPod Touch. Let the… Read More

  • Bonjour works on iPhone, iPod Touch

    Bonjour works on iPhone, iPod Touch

    I see you see me Erica from TUAW got Bonjour up and running on her iPhone and iPod touch. At this point it’s really just a proof of concept—all it can do is send pictures from the iPhone to the Touch—so it’s yet another example of doing something for the sake of it. That’s right now, at least. In the future, with a little more tinkering, Erica says it could be… Read More

  • BusinessWeek: 'The iPod Touch Fails to Wow'

    BusinessWeek: 'The iPod Touch Fails to Wow'

    Yikes, remind me not to ask BusinessWeek’s Cliff Edwards to the Bloggers Prom. For starters, I’m not a guy who likes guys and secondly, he’d probably complain the whole night even though I had my mom iron my suit and borrowed some money from my dad so’s I could pony up for a limo. Oh and thirdly, he downloaded a Jennifer Lopez song and I just can’t get on board with… Read More

    'iPod Death Clock' predicts bucket-kicking dates

    According to iMechanic.com, the iPod touch I purchased a month ago has just under 800 days left until it leaves this world behind, touching the lives of so many people during its short stay here. Ha! "Touching" the lives of…sigh…never mind. It apparently also only has 92% of the battery capacity remaining. What a rip! Anyway, you can use this site to input your iPod’s… Read More

  • Apple launches Web apps for Touch, iPhone

    Apple launches Web apps for Touch, iPhone

    In what seems to be a never-ending battle with third party developers, Apple has officially announced the Web apps download page. It’s reminiscent of the widget page and offers up over 200 apps as of this morning. Since I don’t have an iFones, I’m not sure if anything available is worth the download, but John probably hates them all. Let us know if anything is worth the hassle. Read More

  • iPhone, iPod touch output video better than classic, nano

    iPhone, iPod touch output video better than classic, nano

    Wow. Don’t expect top-notch video quality from the iPod classic or iPod nano while using Apple’s recently released Component AV Cable. Compared to the the iPhone and iPod touch, the classic and nano eat it. Whereas the iPhone and touch look fairly similar to iTunes-puchased video as played back on a computer monitor, the classic and nano distort the picture like nobody’s… Read More

    Do you live in London like Pete Doherty and have an iPod Touch? Well then! Leave that pipe at home and head out into the streets baby, ’cause you’ve got yourself some WiFi for that iPod Touch thanks to The Cloud. A new plan called Cloud Unlimited Music will be available today for £3.99 or ~$8 and allows iPod Touch users to access the internet as much as they want. Basically… Read More
