Google shutting down Translate API

Google has announced they'll be limiting and eventually shutting down the Google Translate API, meaning any iPhone or iPad apps that rely on the service for free translation functionality aren't going to be able to reply on it any longer.

The Google Translate API has been officially deprecated as of May 26, 2011. Due to the substantial economic burden caused by extensive abuse, the number of requests you may make per day will be limited and the API will be shut off completely on December 1, 2011.

iPhone 4s coming in July / August, same form factor but with A5 chipset and SIM-less? [rumor]

Macotakara, a Japanese blog, are rumoring that Apple will release an "iPhone 4S" in July or August this year with the same form factor as the current iPhone 4, with a a completely new model, or "iPhone 5" not be launched until Spring 2012 (!). The main difference will be in the hardware inside the phone. They claim that the iPhone 4s will have an 8-megapixel camera, an Apple A5 chipset based on the ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, and will have a built-in SIM and thus not require the card.

Dream:scape, the Unreal 3 Engine powered game eventually coming on June 9th [video]

We heard that Dream:scape had been submitted to the App Store way back in April; but why hasn’t it appeared for our download pleasure? Well it seems that after submitting the game to Apple, it hit a snag. The game would only run well on the latest iOS hardware; namely the iPhone 4 and iPad 2.

This caused a rethink by the developer (Speedbump) and it pulled the game for some recoding work, to enable it to run on more devices. Today, Speedbump decided to share the good news that the app has been resubmitted and will be released next week; June 9th to be precise. The newly coded version should work on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, 4th generation iPod touch, iPad and iPad 2. Speedbump describe the game as an interactive narrative experience, an immersive exploratory environment, a haunting journey that will become your world.

Take on the role of Wilson, a coma patient relearning his past by exploring the dreamscape of his memories. Only there, in the lucid light of the subconscious, buried secrets are revealed, unraveling a decades-old mystery of tragedy, betrayal, and ultimately, revenge.

Speedbump also released a new trailer for the game which you can find after the break. It looks beautiful and I am really looking forward to getting hold of this one! What do you think?

iPad 3G can make calls and send SMS messages with soon to be released jailbreak app [video]

If you have a burning desire to make phone calls or send SMS messages on your iPad 3G, you'll be happy to know that a group by the name of iPhoneIslam has demonstrated a jailbreak application that enables calls, SMS and FaceTime via phone number on an iPad 3G.

The hack will be called PhoneItiPad and should be available in the Cydia app store before WWDC. The hack requires no additional hardware but you obviously need a jailbroken iPad 3G. This means no iPad 2 support until there is a jailbreak released for that.

Once installed you get an iPhone dialler screen which unfortunately is just the iPhone version blown up 2x. It does look a little ropey; they are working on a full resolution version for this. SMS messages do work perfectly in full screen mode on the iPad. The demo video shows how it all works and it does look like a handy feature to have.

Take a look at the demo video after the break. Then pop back here and let us know if you would welcome the ability to use your iPad 3G as a phone?
