BeeJive IM 2.0 for iPhone

BeeJive IM 2.0 for iPhone

When the original BeeJive IM for the iPhone won our App vs. App Instant Messenger Showdown, Brian thought it was a killer app with some killer features, just a tad shy of IM perfection. We agreed and named it our 2008 TiPby Editors' Choice Award winner for best Social Networking/IM app. Now that version 2.0 has landed -- and Apple's Push Notification Service still very much hasn't -- can the old best be the newer better? Read on to find out!

Tips and How-To's: iPhone Music Management

Tips and How-To's: iPhone Music Management

I have a 160GB iPod Classic that is almost filled to the brim with media: songs, podcasts, movies, tv shows, and photos. Just in music alone, I could fill my 16GB iPhone 3G many times over. I wish my iPhone had 32GB or, heck, since we're wishing, I'll go for 120GB or the equivalent of my iPod. Alas, I have 16GB to work with and I want to carry plenty of apps, photos, podcasts, and videos with me and there's little room around the edges to squeeze in some of my favorite tunes. However, there is a way to keep your music fresh and updated so it seems like you are carrying far more music on your iPhone than you may have thought. Read on to find out how!

iPhone 3G Unlock Updated: yellowsn0w hits 0.9.5

The iPhone Dev Team is still hard at work on their beta, pre-release version of the yellowsn0w process which runs on Jailbroken iPhone 3G's to unlock the devices from their carriers. The latest, 0.9.5 is working for some folks right now, but others are still experiencing problems including the inability to make outgoing calls (signal drops off). If you're trying and failing, be sure to give the Dev Team your feedback.

AT&T Downgrading Original iPhone 2G Service

AT&T Downgrading Original iPhone 2G Service

Still got that original iPhone 2G running on AT&T? Get ready to suffer, luddite! Gizmodo reports on OFB's findings:

Timothy Butler over at OFB did some sleuthing and found that AT&T is downgrading its EDGE/2G service to the weaker 1900 MHz band. Their response to those with newly-lousy service? Buy a new phone.

Specifically, the weaker band means less bars in less places, like inside homes and offices and, out of the way regions -- like maybe where you are?

Macworld Expo 2009 (Under Construction)

4

Macworld Expo 2009 (Under Construction)

Preparations are being made, packing and unpacking is being done -- and from these pics posted by SetteB.it (via Giz) we can see Apple is mounting their last ever Macworld booth (aka Apple Store Mobile). 2007 was the iPhone. 2008 was the MacBook Air and Time Capsule. 2009 will be... whatever's lurking beneath those pantone black curtains?

iPhone nano? Media server? New Nvidia-powered iMacs and Mac Minis? Netbooks? iTablets? Steve Jobs with a full-on puppeteering kit for the new, animatronic iPhil?

We'll find out in a couple days, and TiPb will be there live to cover it!

Meanwhile, looks like January 4, 2010 will be the kickoff time next year. And as for the theme? Check it out, after the jump...

Forget the iSlider Keyboard, Howsabout the iPhone iClamshell?!

Forget the iSlider Keyboard, Howsabout the iPhone iClamshell?!

Last time Gizmodo gave us their version of an iPhone iSlider form factor. We. Didn't. Want. It. Now they're back with a compromise: a modular iPhone that could accept, among other things, a snap-on keyboard iClamshell.

TiPb at Macworld Expo 2009

TiPb at Macworld Expo 2009

Next week is the first big Apple show of the year, and it's also Apple's last Macworld appearance, and the first not to be keynoted by Steve Jobs since his triumphant return to the company he founded.

But while his Steveness may not be there, Dieter and I (and maybe some of our writers) will be, bringing you our usual coverage of the Schiller-note (how weird does that look?!) and the show floor.

Google Mobile App Sneaks in Bells and Whistles!

Google Mobile App Sneaks in Bells and Whistles!

Those rapscallions at Google sure do seem to be having fun with the iPhone. Not only did they pull a fast one on Apple by using private API's to work their lift-the-phone-to-activate-voice-search magic, they snuck a little super-swipe activated easter egg in for the rest of us! Says the Google Mobile blog:

Patent Watch: Apple iGloves for Toasty iPhone Tapping

Patent Watch: Apple iGloves for Toasty iPhone Tapping

What makes capacitive touch displays so responsive is what makes them so unfriendly to hostile environments: they need skin-to-screen contact. Well, technically, they need the electric field around skin, and yet another Apple patent makes it seem like the iPhone team is figuring out a way for us to stay warm and still enjoy the multi-touch lifestyle.

iPhone Hard Keyboard... the Hard Way

iPhone Hard Keyboard... the Hard Way

Not only has the iPhone 3G finally been unlocked, it's now also been hacked to work with a Blue Tooth keyboard. Sure, it's not the elegant, Apple, "it just works" solution the world at large has been waiting for, but a "it's hard work" solution for those desperate and ingenious enough to tackle it. Ars Technica's Erica Sadun breaks down the solution:

iPhone on eBay and... in Pink?!

iPhone on eBay and... in Pink?!

So, either Steve Jobs really is retiring and Paris Hilton is now CEO of Apple, or some factory in China is taking the knock-off back plate biz to a whole new level. Our money's decidedly on the latter. Engadget is likewise struggling to find reason for this iphonochromatic anomaly:

The text on the back of the device convinces us that this isn't a simple ColorWare job, but there aren't any photos of the back of the packaging either. Our take? Some OEM in Asia whipping up custom colors.

All that said, anyone out there want some new iPhone colors in 2009? Which one(s)?
