UPDATED: AT&T Service Outage in Your Area?

UPDATED: AT&T Service Outage in Your Area?

UPDATE: Looks like neither Skynet's first strike nor a Cylon invasion were to blame, but a power failure in Michigan. AT&T has put out a press release (via Chicago Breaking News -- Thanks Jeremy!). Here's hoping everyone gets their ubiquitous connectivity back ASAP.

Both Jeremy (Chicago) and Dieter (MN) seem to be having no-joy with their AT&T service today. (I'm on Rogers, so aside from poverty, I'm fine thanks!)

Walmart Selling iPhone 3G Starting Today

Walmart Selling iPhone 3G Starting Today

Well the day that has been oh so talked about here at TiPb has finally come. The black 8GB iPhone 3G model for $197, and the 16GB black or white model for $297. So much for those $99 rumors although, you will save a measly $2 compared to buying it at Apple or Best Buy (though AT&T does have the 8GB for $99 refurbished).

So pick your poison. If you do happen to pick one up at your local Walmart, please share your experience in the comments!

Quick App: Rolando for iPhone

Quick App: Rolando for iPhone

A few days ago Jeremy mentioned ngmoco:)'s Topple was being offered for free via the iTunes App Store. One of the reason's why is that it's subtly advertising the new game in town: Rolando, which is picking up a lot of very positive word of mouth.

Have you tried it yet? Should we believe the hype?

Fake iPhone Nano Pics du Jour?

Fake iPhone Nano Pics du Jour?

Blurry off-angle photo? Check. Recycled tag line? Check. Recycled hero artwork? Check. Photoshop? Check.

Yes, folks, Jon4Lakers appears to have iPhone Nano fakes just in time for Macworld? And could it be from the same fine folks who brought us the fake Mac Mini poster?

Sure, case makers have made iPhone Nano rumors all the rage again, but just shrinking down the screen's physical size making capacitive targets difficult for beefy fingers to hit doesn't make much sense, does it?

Attack of the iClones: OPhone vs. iPhone

Attack of the iClones: OPhone vs. iPhone

Android Central (via Gizmodo) brings us the latest in a long -- long -- line of... er... iPhone inspired smartphones. This one, however, will be running the Google mobile OS:

The OPhone is 1mm bigger than the original iPhone, has a dedicated camera button, 5MP camera, flash, microSD slot and 3.5mm headphone jack. Yeah. Sounds pretty flippin’ sweet to us too.

TiPb will reserve judgement until it launches, but it will be interesting to see Android on hardware other than the slider-trackball-touch G1. Won't it?

Forum Review: Hero of Sparta for iPhone

Hero of Sparta by msbaylor. (Visit the thread for video and more pics. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum!

Hero of Sparta came out a few weeks ago around the time of Brothers In Arms and it is also done by gameloft. I've come to realize that gameloft has really been putting out some awesome games and this is no exception.

Hero of Sparta brings the "Hack n' Slash" genre to the iPhone.

Round Robin: TiPb vs. the iPhone 3G Final Review

Round Robin: TiPb vs. the iPhone 3G Final Review

[This is an official Smartphone Experts Round Robin post! Every day you reply here, you're automatically entered for a chance to win an iPhone 3G, Case-Mate Naked Case, and Motorola H9 Bluetooth Headset! Full contest rules here!]

After 4 weeks sampling Google's Android G1, Palm's (HTC's) Treo (Windows Mobile) Pro, HTC's Windows Mobile FUZE, and RIM's BlackBerry Bold, it's back, and I'm back.

Boom.

A lot has happened since Dieter ripped the still beeping iPhone 3G from my cold, not-even-dead hand. Promo codes hit the App Store. iFart apps did to (and made a killing -- sigh). And, of course, Apple released a little something called firmware 2.2.

Admittedly, I cheated a bit. I checkout out the new firmware and the new Google Maps, but I really haven't had the chance to use iPhone OS 2.2 as my "daily driver", not until now.

I've reviewed the iPhone software several times now, for 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2, so I'll spare you the regurgitation, because something else has happened to: I've spent time with all those other smartphones. I've experienced some things still unavailable on the iPhone, some I've really liked, others... well, check the videos for the Android G1, Treo Pro, HTC FUZE, and BlackBerry Bold if you haven't already.

Instead, I'm going to focus on that: returning to the iPhone and looking at it again through eyes now widened by our sibling sites' signature devices. And I'm going to start after the jump!

Quick App: Bow Cam for iPhone

An app that barks at a dog to get it's attention so it can then snap the dog's picture? Now that's some cunning canine camera creativity right there. We imagine, however, a barking dog might get the attention of all sorts of other snap-able subjects.

$99 iPhone 3G Not from Walmart but Refurb from AT&T!

Now they don't celebrate Boxing Day in the US (think Black Friday the day after Xmas), but it seems no one told AT&T! Why else would the carrier race Walmart to the bottom and offer $99 iPhone's: 8GB refurbs (and $199 16GB refurbs as well!) according to Engadget.

Forum Review: Touch Physics for iPhone

Touch Physics Forum Review by cjvitek (For msbaylor's take on it, check the link. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum!

Touch Physics is a strategy/puzzle game, where the goal is to get the purple circle to touch the yellow star. As the game progresses, you are presented with an increasing array and diversity of obstacles in your path that you need to navigate the purple circle around. The circle is moved by forces of gravity, friction, and elasticity. For example, if a large object falls on the circle on the left side, the circle will move/roll/bounce to the right.

Patent Watch: More Multi-Touch Gestures for the iPhone

MacRumors brings word of yet more Apple patents passing through the system, this time focusing on multi-touch gestures. How can you patent a gesture? Don't get us started. The USPO has raised the bar on ludicrous so high a giant could now safely run under it. The particulars of this one is interesting to anyone interested in the iPhone interface, however:
