Digital Trends Podcast: iPhone 3G S vs. Palm Pre!

I joined Leif Iverson on yesterday's Digital Trends Podcast, and since Dieter wasn't available, I was put in the untenable position of having to champion both the iPhone 3G S for TiPb and the Palm Pre for our sibling site, PreCentral.net. Somehow, I survived. (And had a lot of fun -- thanks Leif!)

Check it out, and let us know what you think about the upcoming rumble in the smartphone jungle!

Gang Buys own Music on iTunes with Stolen Credit Cards

Gang Buys own Music on iTunes with Stolen Credit Cards

Gizmodo made our Friday just a little more bizarrely amusing with a story about a British gang whose DJ made some music, got it up on iTunes (and Amazon) with a 40% commission, and then used stolen credit cards to buy it -- making them look popular, and $300,000 "richer" at the same time. Strangest part?

the British police won't know why they did it until they ask them?

Us neither then.

How do 40 Million iPhones/iPod touches Look as a Gaming Platform?

How do 40 Million iPhones/iPod touches Look as a Gaming Platform?

During the WWDC 2009 Keynote, Apple announced that over 40,000,000 iPhones and iPods touches had been sold to date. We know what that looks like in the smartphone market space, but now Gizmodo has done some research and shown us what that might just look like in the gaming platform space as well. (See graph above).

Might explain why we see so many games already, and as Gizmodo points out:

UPDATED: iPhone 3G S Unboxing in China!

UPDATED: iPhone 3G S Unboxing in China!

UPDATE: Looks like and the original post is now MIA, so we're keeping the ship steady, banking left, and redirecting unboxing lovers to iTalkiPhone for the rest of the gallery. (Thanks Taylor!)

ORIGINAL: Looks like someone's scored the first pictures of an iPhone 3G S, unboxed and in the wild. Pretty much what everyone expected -- looks just like the iPhone 3G but has some nifty new software like the Compass App (complete with re-calibration instructions), voice control, etc. but still drool-worthy none the less.

A few more pics after the break, but check out their full gallery for all gadget pr0n goodness!

Advertising Age Magazine Looks at iPhone and the AT&T Backlash

Advertising Age Magazine Looks at iPhone and the AT&T Backlash

Advertising Age Magazine ran a couple of articles this week on AT&T and the iPhone, and were kind enough to talk to TiPb about the issues surrounding how AT&T Needs to Raise the Bar on it's network service, and How AT&T Should Handle the Online iPhone Price Backlash.

Lots of good ideas offered all around, but is AT&T listening? Reader David from Texas wrote in to let us know they just might be after he received a direct email newsletter from the US iPhone carrier saying:

The Need for iPhone 3G S Speed. Or, What Did You Want, a Built-In Espresso Maker?!

The Need for iPhone 3G S Speed. Or, What Did You Want, a Built-In Espresso Maker?!

Jeremy and Chad both gave excellent, compelling reasons for why they ARE SO or ARE NOT upgrading to the iPhone 3G S. For certain, intelligent people will have different yet equally valid reasons for choosing to upgrade, or not to upgrade. For myself?

Apple had me at speed.

iPhone 3G S Developers Already Splitting the Platform?

No sooner did we ask (twice) whether the iPhone 3G S will speed up the splitting of the iPhone OS platform than Mobility Today finds the little pop-up alert, above, just chock-a-block full of confirmation.

Apps for Less: Peggle and Need for Speed Undercover

Apps for Less: Peggle and Need for Speed Undercover

It's been a while since out last Apps for Less. It seems as if all the developers are working hard to put their final touches on updates for iPhone OS 3.0 rather than putting their application on sale. With that said, TiPb does have two applications that you may be very interested in picking up at lower prices.

Hackers Hack Apple.com Online Store to Buy iPhone 3G S Sans AT&T Contract?

5

Hackers Hack Apple.com Online Store to Buy iPhone 3G S Sans AT&T Contract?

This was sent our way along with a tip saying almost a dozen people had successfully processed US apple.com iPhone 3G S orders using this hack to avoid AT&T's online contract sign-up.

It doesn't get you the subsidized $199/$299 price, nor an unlocked iPhone, of course, so don't get too excited.

We have no idea if it actually works either -- if orders placed this way will actually ship, or if AT&T goons in black will show up at your door for a little curb-stomping contract reminder. We obviously can't condone it either, so we link to it strictly for educational and entertainment sake, knowing our readers are all responsible adults. Right?

Leaked iPhone 3G S Matte Finish iPhone Cases Were Real... or Canary Traps?

Leaked iPhone 3G S Matte Finish iPhone Cases Were Real... or Canary Traps?

Way back in February a matte black next generation casing (for what's now known as the iPhone 3G S) made it's way around the internet. No one knew if it was real or not, and since WWDC introduced the iPhone 3G S with the same glossy finish as the previous generation, doubts -- they were raised.

iPhone Push Notification Testing Round 2: AIM

28

iPhone Push Notification Testing Round 2: AIM

Apple previously invited developers to help test the upcoming iPhone 3.0 Push Notification service using AP (Associated Press). Now they're ready for some IM action, and have prepared a special, 7-day build of AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) to put push through its paces:

As a developer actively working with iPhone OS, we would like your help in a private test of the Apple Push Notification service. For this test, we have selected AOL's AIM Developer Preview for iPhone OS 3.0 to create a high-volume test environment for our server.

Of course, as with most everything iPhone 3.0-related, at least news of the test didn't stay private for long.

For a sampling of some of the screenshots we've received, check out the gallery after the break!

[Thanks to Rikimaru, and all the anonymous tipsters!)
