Dear iHackers -- Less Nerdfight, More Jailbreak, Okay?

Sees like Geohot, the original iPhone hacker, was set to announce "one jailbreak to rule them all", or a simple, clean way to jailbreak all current iPhone and iPod devices, when another hacker team, Chronic, announced the same exploit and plans for a tool of their own, dubbed greenpois0n. Geohot responded on Twitter and his blog that, in light of their disclosing the exploit he felt a) they were taking credit for his work and b) Apple would patch it fast enough that it wasn't worth doing any more.

Verizon Roshambos AT&T 3G Coverage with "There's a Map for That!"

Verizon gave AT&T a Cartman-esque Roshambo last night with their new, mockingly phrased "there's a map for that" TV commercial, an obvious take off of Apple's "there's an app for that" at the expense of AT&T's smaller 3G coverage footprint.

US Chamber of Commerce -- Just Not Green Enough

Apple is on a big, green tear lately, and like another jade-skinned giant, you better not make them angry -- because you won't like them when they're angry. Case in point, Apple has joined the "we're resigning from the US Chamber of Commerce" parade. Said Catherine A. Novelli, VP of worldwide government affairs:

“We strongly object to the chamber’s recent comments opposing the E.P.A.’s effort to limit greenhouse gases. [...] Apple supports regulating greenhouse gas emissions, and it is frustrating to find the chamber at odds with us in this effort.”

Microsoft Rumored to be Killing Pink, Workers Using iPhones Anyway

Rumor has it Microsoft is on the verge of axing the Pink Project. Come on, you remember those Pure Turtle phones we've been hearing about for months? The ones built by the former Danger/Sidekick team that might run Zune software and compete for the hearts and minds of tweens (TM PalmCast) everywhere? Yeah, those. Axed. Finished. Ballmered.

Updated: TapTap Revenge 3 Cometh with In-App Purchases for Big Name Song Bundles

Updated: It's here! TapTap Revenge 3

One of the most popular games in iPhone (and iPod touch) history is about to raise the bar again as Tapulous has just announced Tap Tap Revenge 3. What's new the third time around?

First, they'll have 40 song bundles from major artists available to purchase in-app at launch, along with custom themes for each. Next, they'll have an online mode with bombs, weapons, chat, PMs, and more. Customizable avatars are on tap, with achievements and levels, as well as an overall look refresh and performance enhancements.

There will be over 100 free tracks for download as well, along with new free and paid tracks released weekly.

Pricing is $0.99 for the app (Apple doesn't allow in-app purchase for free apps), with $2.99 6-track bundle and $0.99 2-track bundle options. Availability, of course, depends on when exactly Apple sees fit to release it into the App Store.

We're hoping for soon.

More screen shots and complete artist list after the break!
