Sygic "Confirms" First Turn-by-Turn App to Enter App Store?

Dieter gave us our first eyes-on look at Sygic's Turn-by-Turn GPS solution for the iPhone 3G, but we wondered if Apple -- whose iPhone SDK specifically forbid providing such navigation -- would ever allow it.

Seems Sygic thinks they will:

Copy/Paste! MMS! Kevin Rose's Last Minute iPhone 3.0 Rumors

Kevin Rose jumped on Facebook video (login to Facebook required) to basically confirm what he said previously about copy and paste, saying it would be across apps, with cut available as well in those apps that support it (?).

He also confirmed hearing MMS would be enabled from multiple sources, something he said he didn't know previously.

A third, unidentified rumor was mentioned but not elaborated on as Rose said he had conflicting sources.

Hockenberry on Apple Netbook Rumors: How About "Front Row To Go"?

Twitterrific developer Craig Hockenberry has posted an interesting article about where he thinks Apple might be going with those 10" multi-touch panels they're rumored to have bought. Not wanting to cannibalize iPhone or MacBook sales, and wanting to experience yet another iPod Halo effect, he takes a look at the gaps he sees in the current product line up and comes up with "Front Row To Go":

Think of it as a second screen for the current hardware.

iPhone SMASH Puny AT&T Network at SXSW in Austin, TX

What's causing all the commotion down in Austin, Texas right now? Turns out it's not only iPhone news at South by Southwest 2009 (SXSW), but it's everyone using iPhone 3Gs as well! It's SMASHING AT&T's network.

We've joked before that AT&T had basically gone out and strapped rabbit ears on their EDGE antennas and called it 3G, well if that's the case, they're rapidly strapping even more ears on round Austin way right now, according to Business Insider:

Around SPE for 15 March, 2009

Welcome to Around SPE, where we highlight the big news of the week from around the network in a format that's more than just a list-o-bullets. This week we're putting the spotlight on Android Central, which saw a fairly hefty redesign on Wednesday night. Search, registration, commenting, navigation, the whole shootin' match is all much improved.

We're also proud to announce that Android Central made a donation to Olin College to help students there develop mobile applications (with a special focus on Android, naturally). You can find out more information about the class here, or better yet -- go check out the applications already in development this early in the semester!

In Android news, we caught word that Amazon was selling the Black G1 for a measly $97.99. Then it got even better with Costco offering the G1 for $79.99, a whole $100 off! Why the discounts? Recession? Pressure from the HTC Magic? Finally, the long awaited Cupcake update is supposed to come to Android by April. Paid apps came to the UK Android Market. And we wondered whether the T-Mobile G2 (aka HTC Magic) was going to show up at CTIA.

Now for the roundup of the week's news from our other SPE sites!

UPDATED AGAIN: Cut/Copy Paste! Palm Pre-Features! No Video! No MMS! Kevin Rose Diggs iPhone 3.0 Rumors!

UPDATED 2: As commenters have pointed out, Rose doesn't say "no MMS", he says he doesn't know about MMS. He does say Apple is not providing Video Recording due to technical limitations: writing too frequently to the NAND Flash memory would burn it out. (While it's true writing to NAND is destructive and thus, there are limited write cycles, Dieter tells us devices like the HTC Touch Diamond and Sumsung Omnia allow writing to internal storage, so who knows?). Basically, the gist of Rose's rumor is that iPhone 3.0 will have Cut/Copy and Paste, and "Palm Pre"-like features...
