State of the iPhone 3.0 Jailbreak

The iPhone Dev-Team has posted a few words regarding Jailbreaking the 3.0 software:

Because there are so many beta releases, we couldn’t possible refine, test, and release both PwnageTool and QuickPwn for each of them. That’s why we’re waiting until the final release. You may have seen other “hijacked” versions of QuickPwn out there, but all of them are buggy, none of them work on OSX, and almost everyone who uses them reverts back to 2.2.1 (because none of the useful jailbroken apps (Qik, Cycorder, and others) work on 3.0 yet).

TiPb Birthday Bash: BeeJiveIM Green Screen Challenge!

Entering this contest counts as an entry in TiPb's Birthday Bash grand-prize draw for an Unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G!

Help! Rene was typing out an URGENT instant message using iPhone uber-IM client, BeeJiveIM ($15.99 - iTunes link):

Stay connected to all your instant messaging buddies anywhere you go! BeejiveIM keeps you in touch with your friends on AIM®/MobileMe®, MSN®/Windows Live®, Yahoo!®, GoogleTalk®, Facebook, MySpace, ICQ® and Jabber... all at the same time, all on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

But here's the thing -- Rene was too late. Something crazy happened, he lost his grip on his trusty iPhone 3G, and now he's scrambling to get it back. This is where the help comes in. Actually, the where is the help. This is our:

We've provided the image (a PNG file) but we need YOU to provide the background. (Specifically, take the image and add a background to it in Photoshop or the image editor of your choice!) Show us where Rene is -- where he lost his grip on his iPhone while desperately trying to finish his IM. The more creative, the better. The funnier, the better. The more spectacular, the better. You get the idea -- and if we choose your entry, you get one of five (5) free copies of BeeJiveIM.

So head on over to our TiPb Birthday Bash: BeeJiveIM Green Screen Challenge! thread and show us just what in the world (or other worlds?) is happening to poor Rene!

TiPb Birthday Bash: Win Rolando, Topple 2, WordFu + Jabra BT530 Bluetooth Headset

Entering this contest counts as an entry in TiPb's Birthday Bash grand-prize draw for an Unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G!

Woohoo! The week is done, Saturday's here and it's time for... another Birthday Bash contest? Oh, yeah, and also fun!

This time the fabulous folks at ngmoco have given us not one, not two, but three (3!) of their astounding games to gift on to three (3) of you:

  • Topple 2: Enjoy the classic Topple experience, but master the new modes as well. Upside-down mode inverts gravity for a topsy-turvy play experience. Balance mode lets you weigh two towers against each other. Power Tower mode challenges you to build a power line using conductive blocks. Rescue mode uses your tower building skills to save the precious golden egg.

  • WordFu: Shake your letter dice and spell as many words as you can before the clock runs out. Build up your score by unleashing an endless word barrage! Freeze time, flick dice for better letters, and let loose a fiery spelling fury! Once you’ve mastered it on your own, take on your friends over WiFi. Dominate the leaderboard on your quest to earn WordFu Belts and become a true WordFu Grand Master. Once no worldly man can defeat you, play Shaolin Style for the highest WordFu challenge!

  • Rolando: Rolandoland has been invaded and the Rolandos need your help! Use innovative tilt, tap and Multi-Touch controls to solve physics puzzles, toy with interactive environments, and evade pesky enemies as you lead the Rolandos to victory.

But wait, there's one more thing!

Crazy Screenshot Friday: iPhone Temperature Warning?

UPDATE: Anon in the comments points out that, per Apple knowledge base, it's totally real. Boy, I need to move to a warmer country!

Jeff sent this in and none of us have ever seen it before (then again, it's still cold in Montreal so I'd have to throw my iPhone in an oven to even try and test it):

Don't sit next to a pool in Scottsdale Arizona when it's 104 degrees or your iphone will melt away! So how to fix it fast? I put the iPhone between 2 cold beers and it worked!

Anyone else ever see this before?
