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. Says Apple Insider:

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)?

MobileMe: iDisk to Make Large File Transfer Easy, iWork to go WebApp?

While TiPb is still waiting on Mobile iChat (SchillerNote Macworld bullet-point perhaps?), at least MobileMe isn't taking time off for the holidays. In addition to an update for their browser-side PIM services, fresh rumors abound of iWork -- Apple's word processing Pages, presentation making Keynote, and spread sheeting Numbers -- going WebApps (think Google Docs with buttery Apple-crafted UI). Ars Technica says:

iPhone 101: iPhone Not Ringing? Meet the Silent Switch!

iPhone 101: iPhone Not Ringing? Meet the Silent Switch!

Three brand-new iPhone owners I know have asked me about this in the last week, and I've heard the Apple Store has gotten more than a few walk-ins who think their iPhones are busted because of this. So, what better way to start out the New Year and our new iPhone 101 series -- for new iPhone owners -- then with this little how-to.

The iPhone has a hardware mute switch, which lets you quickly and easily turn the ringer off and put the iPhone into vibrate-only mode. It's located on the left side (facing the device) directly above the volume rocker. When the ring/silent switch is in-line with the volume rocker, the ringer is on. When the ring/silent switch is offset from the volume rocker, the ringer is muted (and only vibrate is on).

Forum Review: Rolando for the iPhone

Forum Review: Rolando for the 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!

While this app came out some time ago, I have been meaning to write a review for this app, but I always end up getting distracted playing the game, then running out of time. So finally I have distanced myself from my iPhone to bring you this review. :)

This is easily one of the most addicting games I have come across. ngmoco:), the developer of this game has undoubtedly created a unique gem of a game.

The point of Rolando is to roll the Rolandos (characters) around the screen and move them from one point to another while avoiding deadly monsters, fire pits, etc. In order to get them through you might find that you have to push things around, climb across boulder, drop bombs, build bridges, etc. The easiest way to describe the app is to say that it is a cross between Touch Physics for the iPhone and the old Lemmings game.

iPhone 3G Unlock Still Pending -- Will Unlock OS 2.2/Baseband 02.28.00!

While the Dev Team still hasn't released the final iPhone 3G software Unlock, they certainly aren't taking New Year off. In addition to squashing some last minute permission errors, they have an extra-special surprise for 2009:

The soft unlock has undergone many changes in the last two days. The most significant one: the soft unlock will now be only for baseband 02.28.00 (the most recent baseband).

Jeremy is keeping an eye on all the details and will be bring us word as soon soon as the Unlock is live.

Round Robin Extended: 10 More Days to Win!

The 2008 Smartphone Round Robin was originally scheduled to finish... in 2008! December 31st -- Today!

That's right, from now until January 10th, you can make one more comment/forum post, per thread, per day (including this one!).

iTablet Rumors Get TechCrunch'ed!

Not had your fill yet with iPhone nano and iPhone Pro "sliders"? Want even more form-factor furor to fuel your pre-Macworld fires? TechCrunch and the iTablet to the rescue!

We’ve got this from three independent sources close to Apple: expect a large screen iPod touch device to be released in the Fall of ‘09, with a 7 or 9 inch screen. Prototypes have been seen and handled by one of our sources, and Apple is talking to OEMs in Asia now about mass production.

Reminder: iPhone 3G Unlock Due TODAY!

Jeremy posted this earlier in the month and linked to the video, and he'll be back again when the iPhone 3G Unlock goes live, but until then, we just wanted to remind everyone (who's never updated their iPhone from OS 2.0!) that today is supposed to be the day!

Well it is now official, the Dev-Team has updated their blog today to let you all know when the iPhone 3G software unlock will be released. Seems as if New Years eve is what they are aiming for.
