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

Two iPhones enter, only one can be left standing. Which one will it be?

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.
