TiPb Video: iPhone 3G S Multilingual Voice Control Challenge

Throwing any last remnants of fragile self-consciousness to the four winds, I break out my subpar French and very rusty Italian and Mandarin Chinese (Aiya!) and see if, even under the onslaught of terrible accents, Apple's new iPhone 3G S Voice Control can still do as it's told.

UPDATED: Wall Street Journal - Steve Jobs had Liver Transplant, Returning to Apple Soon

UPDATE: Daring Fireball takes apart the Wall Street Journal story about Steve Jobs recovering from a liver transplant, his time table on returning to Apple, and what -- if any -- changes we may see in his role there. Gruber sifts the sources and rank the theories. If this interests you, check it out.

ORIGINAL: We're really not sure how, or even if and when, to cover Steve Jobs anymore. We'd just rather report he's back at work, personally carving the 4th gen iPhone out of adamantium, and not telling Kevin Rose anything about Video iChat.

iPhone 3.0 on iPhone 3G S: Battery Percentage Meter Found!

The case of the missing battery percentage meter has been solved! Developers found it in the iPhone 3.0 beta, but when iPhone 3.0 release hit, it was nowhere to be found... until now!

Looks like it's appearing exclusively on the new iPhone 3G S. Why, we have no idea -- and can't fathom a reason for, but check out Jeremy's screenshot above. There it be!

TiPb iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G Browser Speed Smackdown

Two iPhones enter, only one can be left standing. Which one will it be? Well, both devices got the Nitro JavaScript rendering engine boost courtesy of iPhone 3.0, but the iPhone 3G S brought a little gun to this knife-fight in the form of double the RAM, a faster GPU, and a super souped up processor with higher clock speed and phat'er pipes.
