iPhone Patent Watch: Haptics, Biometrics, RFID, and... Karaoke?!

Facebook 3.0 for iPhone Coming Soon. Push Notification Coming Later

Whether the idea of push notification for the iPhone Facebook app makes you want to do a happy dance, or just run screaming for the delete button, according to a recently published note, you won't be getting it in the 98% completed Facebook 3.0 anyway:

Push Notifications, is in development but it won't make it into 3.0. You can expect it in a 3.1 update later this summer.

Can the iPhone Replace Your Laptop?

Can the iPhone Replace Your Laptop?

Daring Fireball's John Gruber posted the following last night:

A decade ago, my first PowerBook was a secondary machine to the desktop anchored at my desk. Now, my main machine is my MacBook Pro, but it feels a bit like an anchor now. My mobile secondary computer is my iPhone

Third New Apple iPhone 3GS Commercial Focuses on Video Recording, Editing, and Sharing

Looks like Apple wasn't quite done unveiling new iPhone 3GS commercials, as a a third one began airing last night focused on video recording, editing, and sharing.

Like the previous two, which highlighted copy and paste and Voice Control, Apple's keeping them all about the new features -- and the ease of use of the new features.

So that means compass and landscape keyboard are next, right?

The Competition: Microsoft "is so!" Making a Pink Zune Phone to Take on the iPhone?

The Competition: Microsoft "is so!" Making a Pink Zune Phone to Take on the iPhone?

Despite frequent, repeated denials from Microsoft that they aren't making a Zune Phone to pit against Apple's iPhone juggernaut, our sibling site WMExperts keeps compiling evidence that Microsoft might be doing just that.

The latest is that Pink (as it's code-named) has an ad agency, will be based on Windows Mobile 7 but have it's own proprietary UI layer, should be available next year-ish, and provide Zune, My Phone, and Windows Marketplace for Mobiles functionality.

Apple Updates MobileMe WebApps... A Little

Apple has once again made some service improvements to MobileMe:

We recently updated the web applications at me.com.

Apple's New iPhone 3GS Commercials Focus on New Cut and Paste, Voice Control Features

Apple's New iPhone 3GS Commercials Focus on New Cut and Paste, Voice Control Features

Two new iPhone 3GS commercials are now being aired by Apple, the first one focusing on cut, copy, and paste and the second on Voice Control.

While it's interesting that the original iPhone 2G commercials were targeted at "the internet in your pocket" and the iPhone 3G commercials at "there's an app for that", new features aside, we're not sure what overarching theme Apple's going for this time -- if any.

Wednesday Fun Video: iPhone 3GS Real Racing Tech Demo

Wednesday Fun Video: iPhone 3GS Real Racing Tech Demo

Firemint has put up the above video tech demo of their Real Racing game running optimized for an iPhone 3GS and.... wow.

“Since the game uses a high fidelity physics engine, adding cars is a good test for pushing the hardware. We started our tech demo with 8 cars on the track, then 10, 12, 16 and 20, and the 3GS still didn’t break a sweat,” wrote Firemint’s Alexandra Peters. “We finally stopped when we got to 40 cars on the track at the same time, still with no perceptible drop in frame rate. We think the results are mind blowing.”

Quick App: Reportage Twitter "Radio Tuner" for iPhone

Quick App: Reportage Twitter "Radio Tuner" for iPhone

If the iPhone and Twitter go together like chocolate and peanut butter, then for the most part current iPhone Twitter client developers give us many variations of the peanut butter cup. Tasty confections though they may be, and each unique and delicious in their own right, at the end they still tend towards variations of the peanut butter cup.

Enter Reportage from wherecloud [$2.99 - iTunes link], which rearranges those twin flavors like nouveau cuisine, utterly deconstructed and left for you to explore.

Too obscure? Okay, rewind. Reportage bills itself as a "radio tuner" for Twitter where followers are treated like stations on the FM dial and you can tune in (or tune out) to what they're saying, and spin the dial to move from user "station" to user "station".

It should be noted at the beginning that Reportage isn't a general purpose Twitter workhouse. There are tons of those already. Like Birdhouse, which models itself on a "notebook" writing experience for Twitter, Reportage has also chosen to focus on one specific concept -- pseudo-"live broadcast" of the Twitter users you follow.

Keep that in mind as we go along...

iPhone Dev-Team: ultrasn0w Users Avoid iPhone 3.1 Beta!

iPhone Dev-Team: ultrasn0w Users Avoid iPhone 3.1 Beta!

Right in time for iPhone 3.1, the iPhone Dev-Team has begun issuing their usual warnings about jailbreak/unlock users and new firmware updates:

ultrasn0w users must stay away from official 3.1 (incl. betas) until we release the tools for it, or you'll lose unlock!

Tempting as a tasty new beta may be, if you can't live without your hacked iPhone, don't hit that update button now, or any time before the iPhone Dev-Team has new, tested tools ready for you.

Once again, you've been warned!

Quick App: Cellar Wine Tracker for iPhone

From the team team that brought us Barista, Cellar aims to give wine the same app love coffee has enjoyed for a while now:

Cellar is a portable, swipeable showcase of what's currently in your cellar or wine rack, plus the Garage feature lets you store wine that you've decided you might buy again.

Cellar has been submitted to the App Store and should be available... as soon as Apple decides to make it so.

In the meantime, enjoy the screenshots after the break!
