Google Voice returning to App Store soon?

GV Mobile developer, Sean Kovacs, had some good news to share on Twitter saying that his unofficial Google Voice application GV Mobile should now be allowed into the App Store. Since GV Mobile does not violate any of the new rules regarding the app review guidelines that Apple has laid out for developers, Kovacs figured why not resubmit his application and try to finally get it back where it belongs.

How's your iPhone data speed with iOS 4.1?

My iPhone 4 is getting pretty much the same 3G HSPA speed under iOS 4.1 as it was under 4.0.x, how about you? There was nothing overtly mention in iOS 4.1 that should have changed things, but you never know what gets tuned under the covers, never mind what your carrier is up to in your region.

One of our readers, Paul, swears his speed has tanked by a factor of 10 since the update.

So break out your favorite measuring tool (I used the SpeedTest.net app) and let us know where you are and what your speeds are like.

FaceTime headed to Mac, Windows?

Mac4Ever rumors today that Apple's FaceTime video calling will be coming not only to the Mac in the form of an iChat update, but also to Windows.

FaceTime is built on open standards and has been released as an open standard, so we could see it integrated by existing services like Skype, Microsoft could build it into their IM client, or -- hey -- it's about the only thing Apple hasn't built into iTunes yet, right?

Adobe thinks Apple's new cross-compiler policy is great, lack of support for (non-existant) Flash player not so much...

Like Google, Adobe is also over-joyed at Apple's newly changed and clarified developer license agreement, specifically the part that now allows cross-compilers like Flash CS5 Packager for iPhone:

iPod nano 6 [gallery]

He may be little, but the 2010 iPod nano 6 still looks like iOS and still acts like iOS so I'm going to show him off like he's iOS -- up against the iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4.

I'll be working on the review this weekend, so if you have any questions, leave them in the comments.

Follow along after the break for the gallery!

AWS 3G iPhone 4 coming to Videotron... and T-Mobile USA?

Videotron launched their mobile unit today and along with Nexus One and BlackBerry Bold 9700 they said Apple would announce an AWS 3G (the higher spectrum 3G used by upstarts Wind, Moblicity, and Videotron in Canada, and T-Mobile in the US) "in the coming months".

My usual thinking is that carriers have little if any forward knowledge of Apple's plans, so take this with a Quebec-sized grain of salt.

If Apple wants to have a truly universal GSM/HSPA 3G phone, however, they'll need to enable or add those AWS frequencies at some point.

Several tweets this morning are indicating that a jailbreak for iOS 4.1 could come sooner rather than later.  Could there be any better news you ask? Why yes! Jailbreaker @pod2g as well as other sources are indicating that this "particular" exploit would require Apple to flash to a whole new bootrom in order to fix it.

Google likes Apple's clarified iOS advertising policy

Google Vice President of Product Management, Omar Hamoui, has just posted about the changes made this morning to Apple's iOS developer licensing agreement, specifically the section referring to in-app advertising:

Today, Apple updated their iPhone Developer Program License Agreement. Unlike the previous version, these new terms ensure that Apple’s developers have the choice of a variety of advertising solutions (including Google’s and AdMob’s) to earn money and fund their apps. Apple’s new terms will keep in-app advertising on the iPhone open to many different mobile ad competitors and enable advertising solutions that operate across a wide range of platforms.

Read the whole things for why this is great news for everyone, from consumers to developers to puppy dogs (that's not me being facetious -- it really is).
