Lightning Review: Absolute Fitness

Lightning Review: Absolute Fitness

Lightning Reviews are back with a flash (get it?). Today's review: a review of Absolute Fitness ($14.99 in the App Store) by smileyboy. Smileyboy will receive a 25% off coupon to our iPhone Accessories Store. Want to win just such a coupon yourself? Find out how here. The folks at the store tell us that their selection of iPhone 3G cases is really ramping up now -- just be sure to select what kind of iPhone you have in the upper-left to ensure compatibility.

One of my favorite things to do is to workout. I love staying in shape and using technology to do it. Before the iPhone, there were various Palm and WM apps that I would use. The process became very tedious. Sometimes the device would reset, the programs were incomplete at times and so on.

I stared using the iPhone and I went back to my notebook and a pencil at the gym, because there were no apps. That is until the 2.0 software and the AppStore came out. The first app I tried was Fit 1.0. I can't even begin to explain how incomplete this app is. I began another search. I found Absolute Fitness.

This App is perfect. Read on to see why!

WARNING: MobileMe Phishing Scam in the Wild

WARNING: MobileMe Phishing Scam in the Wild

Phishing attacks, where a bad guy tries to fool you into giving them personal information such as financial account logins, are nothing new on the 'net. Fake emails leading you to a fake bank site to enter your information so that they (increasingly organized crime, often in Russia or China) can log into your real site and transfer out all your money, then steal your identity and sell it off to second and third tier hackers for other nefarious uses.

Best Cut-and-Paste Proof of Concept to Date

David Friedman writes in to let us know he's thrown his hat into the 'This is how I think Apple should implement cut-and-paste' ring. His idea is simple, intuitive, and doesn't look to interfere with the current magnifying glass insertion point UI.

Virgin Mobile Canada Stoops to New Low...

Virgin Mobile Canada Stoops to New Low...

Disappointing. Disgusting. Shocked. Offended. You pick the negative emotion and we're pretty much feeling it right now. I mean, how could they, right? How could Virgin Mobile Canada stoop so low...

...As to carry the Crackberry?

What? Oh, you thought we meant the blatantly misogynistic, awkwardly pandering, positively Neaderthal-eque pseudo-sexual advertising that rankles the puritanical roots of Americans but barely raises an eyebrow across the pond in Europe?

iPhone is Flickr King Once Again!

iPhone is Flickr King Once Again!

We had originally reported that the iPhone was the most popular camera phone on Flickr, the popular photo sharing website, way back in May, pre-3G. Well, it lost that title for a brief moment and only re-gained it recently. I'm only guessing but it probably had to do with the 3 million iPhone 3Gs that took the market by storm. Either way, the iPhone being the King of Flickr should force Apple to take notice and improve the camera already.

Updated! MobileMe Mail Down! Gmail Down! + Behind the Scenes at Apple HQ

Updated! MobileMe Mail Down! Gmail Down! + Behind the Scenes at Apple HQ

Update: Both MobileMe and Gmail seem to be back up and running. (I had to force quit Mail.app and restart it to get it functional again). Was this a DDoS attack? Brown-out in San Fran? Downtime while some changes to prevent DNS cache injection were made? The intertubes are on fire with rumors. Feel free to make up your own!

Yup, Apple's on-again, off-again MobileMe service is currently off-again, at least as far as email is concerned. Poorly planned? Ill-conceived? Just plain cursed? Probably none of the above, but it sure can't catch a break from the breakdowns, now can it?

iPhone Murder: ZOMG No! Smashed Edition

iPhone Murder: ZOMG No! Smashed Edition

Human on iPhone crime is out of control. First they were shooting iPhones. Now what? Beating them to death? Once again, I have to believe these iPhones were drugged first, otherwise I'm certain the beatings would have decidedly gone the other way. BAM! Mike Tyson overhand right. POW! Georges St-Pierre tackle. BOOM! Steve Jobs MobileMe-drop for the kill!

Check out Gizmodo for the whole mellow-harshening gallery... if you can stand it.

Patent Troll Watch: Apple Sued over GSM

Patent Troll Watch: Apple Sued over GSM

Apple (along with Palm, RIM, and the usual suspects) are all being sued by litigation happy patent-portfolio'er, WiAV Solutions, about whom Engadget Mobile says:

The company that doesn't make anything or even have a web site, but files so many patent lawsuits that some companies have taken to pre-emptively filing suits for declaratory judgment against it.

Must be something super-non-obvious, remarkably novel, spankingly applicable, and about which there couldn't possibly be any prior "art", right? Turns out not so much:

Review: Motorola MOTOROKR T505 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone

Can't find a Bluetooth Headset that fits your ear? Struggling enough with the headset that it defeats the purpose of being 'hands free'? Well, the Motorola MOTOROKR T505 Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone ($99.95) is ideal for you. It is essentially a Bluetooth speakerphone, keeping your hands free and your ears clear while driving your car. Unlike a Bluetooth headset, the Motorokr T505 is meant to be used strictly in a car setting. How does it perform?

IBM Announces Lotus iNotes for the iPhone

IBM Announces Lotus iNotes for the iPhone

The iPhone already supports standards-based POP and IMAP email accounts, and as of 2.0 supports the big-in-business Exchange format accessed via ActiveSync. But much as Microsoft would like to completely own everythat space, there are several competing corporate communication soluting out there, including RIM/Blackberry's North American powerhouse, Novell's Groupwise (which I'm still not convinced Chad didn't just make up...), and of course, good old Lotus Notes.

More App Store Stats, Soon To Be a Billion Dollar Marketplace

So you've been running on iPhone 2.0 (hopefully, 2.0.1) for a while now. And you've all enjoyed the plethora of quality apps at the App Store, but did you know how well the App Store was actually doing? Well, according to one of those old reputable printing press companies, pretty darn well.

The App Store holds a current pace of earning a revenue of over a million dollars a day, which roughly translates to $360 million a year. Steve Jobs issued some resounding statements about the App Store saying,

A Steve Jobs Endorsed iPhone Dock

A Steve Jobs Endorsed iPhone Dock

Peeved that your iPhone 3G didn't come with a dock? Annoyed that the dock is just too, plain? Well, if you want to add some color, creativity, and character, there probably isn't anything better than a Steve Jobs Dock! The detail is amazing, the color is accurate, and the Steve Jobs Keynote pose is downright hilarious. Not to mention, it's a bobblehead that works with both original iPhone and the iPhone 3G.

What would be even cooler is if you could rig Steve Jobs the Bobblehead to say "Boom" every time you insert your iPhone into the dock.
