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

  • Apple goes enterprise? It could happen


    While some of us may remember the XServe and basically say “didn’t Apple already go enterprise? And fail?” this rumor is different.

  • Rumor: First 3G iPhones in Singapore, now with more caning


    Singapore is apparently going to be the first country to have the 3G iPhone in September 2008. The carrier, SingTel, said the phone would cost about $700. I’m calling bullshit. In related news, Apple “may have order” 10 million 3G iphones from Asia, according to a Gartner analyst. This new model will include an OLED and should be headed to Asia. I’m also calling… Read More

  • O'Reilly bets that jailbroken and SDK phones will exist concurrently

    O’Reillly just published a book by Jonathan Zdziarski, the writer of NES.app for the iPhone and one of the premier iPhone hackers. It describes how to jailbreak and install BSD applications and program using the iPhone APIs.

  • 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. Maybe now Biggs will shut up and not whip his out every two seconds. I’ll stick with AT&T for a little bit, but rest assured that Jailbreaking will commence shortly. Read More

  • iPhone version of 'Mario Kart'-ish game

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=32045 No telling how really real this is because it’s just a teaser video, but we have what appears to be a Mario Kart-like game for the iPhone. It’s apparently being developed by France’s int13, but I found no mention of the game itself on the company’s site. The steering wheel looks interesting and the little cursor… Read More

The T-Mobile logo in the upper right left hand corner seems to be causing some concern for certain skeptics… Read More

  • Is Apple's 3-D technology patent a sign of its video game console initiative?

    [photopress:patent_080320_2.jpg,full,center] The US patent office is responsible for much rumormongering. It’s the nature of the beast to publicize half-legible drawings that make us bloggers try to make sense of what’s going on. Usually the images and descriptions are vague enough that we can’t figure out what we’re looking at, but sometimes, when coupled with other… Read More

  • OK, so Adobe isn't making Flash for iPhone, at least not yet

    [photopress:flash.jpg,full,left]Remember yesterday we brought you news that Adobe was fast-tracking a version of Flash for the iPhone? Yah, not so much. Adobe’s CEO Narayen assumed it would be possible with the recently released iPhone SDK. It’s not.

  • Video: The Hiphone gets unboxed, reviewed

    Another day, another Apple knockoff. Meet the Hiphone, a clone from Hong Kong. It sure looks like an iPhone, and is packaged like an iPhone, but it apparently isn’t anything like the iPhone.
