UPDATED: Wall Street Journal - Steve Jobs had Liver Transplant, Returning to Apple Soon

UPDATE: Daring Fireball takes apart the Wall Street Journal story about Steve Jobs recovering from a liver transplant, his time table on returning to Apple, and what -- if any -- changes we may see in his role there. Gruber sifts the sources and rank the theories. If this interests you, check it out.

ORIGINAL: We're really not sure how, or even if and when, to cover Steve Jobs anymore. We'd just rather report he's back at work, personally carving the 4th gen iPhone out of adamantium, and not telling Kevin Rose anything about Video iChat.

iPhone 3.0 on iPhone 3G S: Battery Percentage Meter Found!

The case of the missing battery percentage meter has been solved! Developers found it in the iPhone 3.0 beta, but when iPhone 3.0 release hit, it was nowhere to be found... until now!

TiPb iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G Browser Speed Smackdown

Two iPhones enter, only one can be left standing. Which one will it be? Well, both devices got the Nitro JavaScript rendering engine boost courtesy of iPhone 3.0, but the iPhone 3G S brought a little gun to this knife-fight in the form of double the RAM, a faster GPU, and a super souped up processor with higher clock speed and phat'er pipes.

iPhone 3.0 Pwnage Jailbreak Now Available for Mac OS X

Now before you get too excited let me just off by saying this jailbreak is not for Apple's latest hardware, iPhone 3G S. This is only for the iPhone 3G or iPhone 2G running the 3.0 software.

Now with that said, the Dev-Team has released the proper tool for Mac OS X users to jailbreak your iPhone 3G's running 3.0, PwnageTool 3.0. Be warned, if do not know what you are doing, don't attempt it!

Rogers Customers: Prepare for a Long Wait. Everybody Else: Smile


Above, customers at the Montreal Apple Store wait for Rogers to get their systems working

Upgrading to an iPhone 3G S in Canada? We feel for you, and we fear we're going to continue to feel for you for a healthy portion of the day. Last year there were activation backlogs and hang-ups all over, but it was especially egregious in Canada, where people were waiting for half the day for Rogers' system to get up and happy and talking with Apple's system.
