Apple to debut Safari 5, Xcode 4, Apple TV on iPad, and more pre-WWDC crazy

I'm sitting here at the airport waiting for my flight (or the first leg of my flight rather, grrrr!) to San Francisco for WWDC 2010 and catching up on the latest, greatest, coolest, and craziest rumors to hit the web -- namely Safari 5, a new version of Xcode, and more.

Safari on the iPhone and iPad is typically ahead of the curve when it comes to supporting Apple's version of (still emerging) HTML5 and CSS3 standards, and their Nitro Javascript engine, but desktop Safari typically leads the way in terms of cool features like local RSS, Top Sites, etc. According to Macgenerations Safari 5 looks to increase that lead:

iPhone OS 4: iTunes streaming music in widget UI, is this how Pandora and Slacker will work?

We've already seen how iPhone OS 4 now includes double-tap to launch the fast-app switcher for multitasking, and how you can now swipe left to get audio control widgets for the iPhone, but it seems those audio controls are working for iTunes streaming now as well - and maybe more?

SquareTrade announces new iPhone 3GS Warranty

SquareTrade has sent us a little tip announcing its new coverage rates for the iPhone 3GS. As any iPhone owner knows, when you drop your phone, your heart may momentarily stop. We all know most warranties also don't cover drops and spills. This is where SquareTrade steps in. For only $99 you'll receive 2 full years of coverage. Compare that to AT&T's rumored new iPhone protection plan, and you've got yourself a deal with SquareTrade.

SquareTrade had this to say about their warranty pricing compared to AT&T's:

Who wants to win a Jawbone ICON Bluetooth headset from TiPb? Here's how!

You've all read about our huge iPhone HD/iPhone 4G give-away, haven't you? You remember the part where store.imore.com is helping to pass the time until Apple actually ships the new hawt thing by giving away a great accessory every week?

Well, this week we're giving away a Jawbone ICON Bluetooth headset. It's top of the line folks (check out the video after the break!), and all you have to do to enter is head on over to our iPhone Contest Forum and make sure you enter your video link, comment on a video link, or comment on what you expect or think about the up coming, next generation iPhone.

Oh, and if you start a new, original iPhone HD/iPhone 4G-related thread, it counts as TWO entries. Boom.

Quality posts only please. Mods will delete any lameness "post to win" or spam on site.

We're picking this week's winner soon, so get over the iPhone Contest Forum and enter now!

More MobileMe going free rumors

With the WWDC 2010 keynote mere days away, more rumors continue that Apple's push and sync solution, MobileMe, might just be going free. They're thin, admittedly, but BGR points us to a change in how account type is shown -- now "full member" is highlighted.

As opposed to free member?

We might just find out Monday, including what the differences are between "free" and "full" (or no change at all). We know you want it -- because we want it too - so go head, conjecture in the comments!

TiPb at WWDC 2010

I'm going to be at WWDC 2010 from Monday to Wednesday, checking out what I hope will be all shades of 4th gen iPhone and iPhone OS 4 awesome, and meeting with developers to see what fiendishly clever plans they have for using that new tech to make even more wondrous apps.

Keep your browsers locked here for all our coverage, and feel free to follow us on twitter @TiPb for just the highlight (or @reneritchie for the not-fit-for-print backstage hijinks).

Email Apple CEO, get response from Jobs. Email AT&T CEO, get legal threat

From the surprisingly poplar PR manual in how not to win customers and engender goodwill, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson's email address doesn't seem anywhere near as likely to receive a Steve Jobs-style terse if direct response. Indeed:

Giorgio Galante found out today, sending AT&T's CEO two emails in two weeks results in a phone call from AT&T's Executive Response Team and a warning that further emails will result in a cease and desist letter.

Sprint HTC Evo 4G -- here comes the iPhone HD/iPhone 4G competition

Phil Nickinson over at Android Central has just posted a full review of the Sprint HTC Evo 4G, which he's billing as the baddest Android on the planet. Big screen, front facing video call camera, brand new OS in the pipeline, it's not hard to see that this will be Sprint's answer to the iPhone HD/iPhone 4G (unless and until they're able to offer the iPhone HD/iPhone 4G on Sprint -- just sayin').
