    Supposedly iPhone Firmware 2.0 is now on the Waffles.fm BitTorrent tracker. It is April Fools Day, the day when everyone gets to be a little silly, so I don’t know if it’s real or not just yet. I’ll hand it off to John so he can test it out as soon as it finishes downloading. Read More

  • The iPhone is finally coming to Canadia. Or not. Or it is.

For this, we cannot, as the point of the article is the unknown nature of the iPhone in Canadia. Everyone sort of assumed it would go to Rogers, as Rogers is Canadia’s only real nationwide GSM provider. But if that’s the case, it should… Read More

  • iPhone completely crax0red? PWNED available next week

    What may be the deepest crack yet for the iPhone is coming out today next week for your perusal. It takes over “the lowest layers of Apple’s device,” allowing for unsigned, custom firmware to be dropped in.

  • Apple comes to agreement with Japanese "aiphone" maker


    A Nagoya-based company, Aiphone, just announced that they have come to an agreement with Apple on using the iPhone name in Japan.

Asia is saturated with so many cool devices that it would be… Read More

  • Apple goes enterprise? It could happen

  • Guess who just got an iPhone?

    Meeeeeee. I sure as heck didn’t pay for it, but some strings were pulled and now I have one to pet heavily for the next couple weeks.
