EDIT! native Microsoft Excel 2003 documents just as you would on your desktop. Save the edited Excel file on your iPhone, send to your iDisk account remotely, or upload to your desktop using WiFi - all while maintaining perfect data integrity.

Not had your fill yet with iPhone nano and iPhone Pro "sliders"? Want even more form-factor furor to fuel your pre-Macworld fires? TechCrunch and the iTablet to the rescue!

We’ve got this from three independent sources close to Apple: expect a large screen iPod touch device to be released in the Fall of ‘09, with a 7 or 9 inch screen. Prototypes have been seen and handled by one of our sources, and Apple is talking to OEMs in Asia now about mass production.

Reminder: iPhone 3G Unlock Due TODAY!

Jeremy posted this earlier in the month and linked to the video, and he'll be back again when the iPhone 3G Unlock goes live, but until then, we just wanted to remind everyone (who's never updated their iPhone from OS 2.0!) that today is supposed to be the day!

Well it is now official, the Dev-Team has updated their blog today to let you all know when the iPhone 3G software unlock will be released. Seems as if New Years eve is what they are aiming for.

iPhone Dev Team Speaks Out

For the first time ever, the complete iPhone Dev Team finally got together and met each other face to face. They gathered recently and gave a presentation at the Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin.

Keep in mind the video is 58 minutes long and they do go pretty deep but it is definitely a interesting thing to check out. My favorite part of the whole thing comes in around the 2 minute 30 second mark: there are 180 IP addresses inside Apple that the Dev Team have tracked who have "updated their quickpwn and pwnage tool on a regular basis".

Very interesting indeed. ;)

Apple Media Server to Give iPhone Content Everywhere?

Another countdown to Macworld, another rumor! This one says that Apple is developing a turbo-boosted version of Time Capsule that would offer HP Media Smart Server-like capabilities. Some of the more nifty, iPhone related features, according to 9to5Mac, could include:

The device will tie in MobileMe with an Apple built-in Dynamic DNS system. For instance, if your MobileMe account was "9to5mac", your domain name would be "9to5mac.me.com". This is how you'd reach your filesystem throughout the Internet. Your media would also reside here. [...] Sharing media with iPod Touch and iPhones both over the Internet and while at home. AppleTV as well.

iPhone Cellular Network Data Meter Dialed Down After Reboot?

Bla1ze brought this to our attention and while we're likely not the first to notice this, we haven't found or figured a good answer for it either. If you have a low data usage on your iPhone (in the MBs rather than GBs) and you do a reboot, when your iPhone comes back up, the Cellular Network Data meter will be lower.

Above are two screen shots taken right before and right after a reboot, which show the difference.

UPDATED: AT&T Service Outage in Your Area?

UPDATE: Looks like neither Skynet's first strike nor a Cylon invasion were to blame, but a power failure in Michigan. AT&T has put out a press release (via Chicago Breaking News -- Thanks Jeremy!). Here's hoping everyone gets their ubiquitous connectivity back ASAP.

Both Jeremy (Chicago) and Dieter (MN) seem to be having no-joy with their AT&T service today. (I'm on Rogers, so aside from poverty, I'm fine thanks!)
