Tuesday Educational Video: iPhone 3GS Disassembled

DirectFix let us know they've posted the first video with step-by-step tear down and build back up directions for Apple's new iPhone 3GS. They also passed along that:

DirectFix.com already has replacement LCD screens and touch panels available on its website. We expect our first inquiries in the following days, as there are always some that almost immediately drop their new iPhones.

Here's hoping not though. Keep your new iPhones safe!

iPhone Law and Order - TSA Recording and Find My iPhone Locating

iPhone Law and Order - TSA Recording and Find My iPhone Locating

In the justice system of internet zaniness, iPhones are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. Apple, who creates cool technology, and the badapps people who put it to use. These are their stories...

First up, reader Matt pointed us towards an article on CNN.com where a passenger traveling within the US, carrying over $4000 in cash, was held for questioning and all he had to defend himself was:

a pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution and an iPhone capable of making audio recordings. And he used them.

iPhone 3GS Review

iPhone 3GS Review

iPhone 3GS review: it's the same as last year. There. Done.

What? That's what everyone's saying, isn't it? With the iPhone 3GS, Apple didn't give the fashionistas their glowing status fix, didn't once again jump high enough over the bar they themselves set way back in ought seven... The iPhone 3GS is increment

Maybe there's a point to the technorati's collective malaise of mobile-dernity. We've already done our iPhone 3.0 Software Walkthrough, so now it's time for TiPb to weigh in the hardware, and on whether or not it deserves the 2,1 designation Apple is seemingly so keen to slap on it.

1 Million iPhone 3G S, and 6 Million iPhone 3.0 Downloads Served

1 Million iPhone 3G S, and 6 Million iPhone 3.0 Downloads Served

Apple PR has announced that:

it has sold over one million iPhone™ 3GS models through Sunday, June 21, the third day after its launch. In addition, six million customers have downloaded the new iPhone 3.0 software in the first five days since its release.

That's a good number of units for the device equivalent of another sequel release, isn't it? It's also enough to get Steve Jobs back up in the quoting chair:

Which iPhone are You? Apple Charts the Differences

Apple's Knowledge Base once again steps up in the handy-dandy reference chart department with a feature check-list showing highlighting some major features supported by all iPhone models, by the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G S, and by the new iPhone 3G S alone.

There are some caveats, however:

iPhone 3G 3 Chipset 720p Recording, Real-time Video Conferencing Capable?

21

iPhone 3G 3 Chipset 720p Recording, Real-time Video Conferencing Capable?

Engadget reports -- based on the tear-downs we've seen -- that the iPhone 3G S' ARM Cortex A8 processor is capable of a wee bit more than Apple has thus far enabled.

Currently running at 600MHz, it actually supports a top clock speed of 833MHz and here are the kickers: 720p video recording and real-time video conferencing.

We'll likely not see the clock speed ramped up for power-saving reasons, nor the video conferencing due to the lack of front-facing camera. But the 720p video recording?

Apple, flip the switch!

TiPb Video: iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G App Launch Battle Royal!

TiPb Video: iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G App Launch Battle Royal!

http://www.th Two iPhones, 6 apps. We know the iPhone 3G S is supposed to be "on average" 2x faster than the iPhone 3G, but stats are stats and what we're interested in is real-world usage. A few seconds here, a dozen or more there, and all of a sudden they add up to minutes.

In this video we launch apps on each iPhone 3.0 device at the same time, but imagine if every time the iPhone 3G S finished first, we immediately launched the next app. We wouldn't make you sit through that much iPhone 3G lag, but that makes the point.

AT&T Still Not Activating All iPhone 3G S -- Apple Giving $30 Apologies?

AT&T Still Not Activating All iPhone 3G S -- Apple Giving $30 Apologies?

A couple of our readers have written in over the weekend concerned that they still can't activate their iPhone 3G S on AT&T's network. Greg let us know that he was originally assured his Apple Store-purchased iPhone 3G S would be activated within 48 hrs (?!) but now it looks like that's been pushed back another 48 hrs -- or 4 days total.

He forwarded us an email he claims to have received from Apple offering a $30 iTunes credit by way of apology.

Isolated incident or is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Dev-Team - redsn0w Forecast for iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G Jailbreak in June

NOTE: iPhone 3G S need not apply!

While I don't have anywhere near the midichlorians Jeremy has for all things Jailbreak, I can tell when the infamous iPhone Dev-Team has their game on:

redsn0w is an easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking (iPhone 2G only) tool for the iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G (but not the 3GS) and also the iPod touch (first and second generation). Currently it is available for Windows and Mac OS X (there are some issues using redsn0w with OS X PPC, please use an Intel Mac until we have this problem resolved).
