Apple Building Their Own Search Engine?

Apple Building Their Own Search Engine?

The intertubes are a flood with rumors that Apple may be building their own search engine. Does this mean they're going into competition with Microsoft Live! Search? With Yahoo!? With Google?! (After all, Google went into competition with Apple in the smartphone market!)

Probably not, according to TechCrunch:

Microsoft "Office Web" to Run on iPhone?!

Microsoft "Office Web" to Run on iPhone?!

Sure, Microsoft's online Live/Mesh/Azure strategy is just a tad less complicated than n-dimensional string theory, but it looks like when the next version of Office (14) ships with it's GoogleDocs/Zoho competing Office Web, it will include support for not only Mac OS X... but for the iPhone's MobileSafari browser as well!

According to Macworld, neither release date nor price point are known, but it should be a companion to Office 14 which is slated for 2009(-ish?)

New "Cracking" Lawsuit: Leave the iPhone Alone!

For the love of Steve Jobs, leave Britney ehh... I mean the iPhone alone!

Back at the end of July, Casey reported on white iPhones having issues with the plastic housing cracking in certain areas. As most of you are probably aware of, there have been a few lawsuits filed against Apple regarding the iPhone 3G.

This go around a New York man, Avi Koschitzki, filed a 23 page lawsuit stating the iPhone is not "twice as fast" as the original and exhibits cracks in the housing of the phone.

Citrix Brings Windows to the iPhone!

Citrix Brings Windows to the iPhone!

Citrix, the folks behind Go To Meeting and Go To My PC -- and if you believe the urban myth, a good portion of the Windows kernel -- have just significantly harshened Steve Jobs' mellow and sent yet another shudder down Tim Cook's spine.

While VNC/Remote Desktop Apps have been available for the iPhone for a while (see Chad's Jaadu vs. Mocha Showdown), a helpful Fortune Blog reader points us the differences in the Citrix solution:

Apple Adds New Samples to iPhone SDK

Apple Adds New Samples to iPhone SDK

iPhone developer extraordinaire Erica Sadun over at Ars reveals that Apple has expanded on the iPhone SDK samples, and with some pretty nifty new stuff.

While I can't claim to understand it, included in the update is aurioTouch and oalTouch for scilloscope and positional audio, Accessory and TouchCells which (apparently!) give greater options in tables and cells, and URLCache and Reflection which focus on Web-based data and image reflections respectively.

Says Sadun:

Forum Review: SearchDial for the iPhone

Forum Review: SearchDial for the iPhone

Forum Review by cjvitek For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum!

Note: This review was requested on the review request thread.

Search Dial is just that...a searching program for numbers to dial. But it adds a little more functionality into just looking through your contact list.

The Search Dial interface is very straightfoward. When you start the program, you are presented with a screen to select "call", "SMS", or "Email". You then start to type a persons name (first or last) and as your type, contacts that match the description start to appear. The more you type, the more specific you are, and the more it narrows down the contact options. Let's look at each of the options one at a time.

Official iPhone Qik App Brings TWiT's Live!

Official iPhone Qik App Brings TWiT's Live!

Chief TWiT Leo Laporte just streamed live from his iPhone via the official (non-Jailbreak) version of the Qik App, which he says should be available in the App Store soon.

All the rage last year in the blogsphere, many iPhone users were stuck carrying around a Nokia 95 just for Qik live streaming. Perhaps, no longer!

Check out the recording to get an idea of the quality. Looks like it doesn't handle motion very well, but is otherwise fairly decent. Still, we have to wonder, what will this do to AT&T's "rabbit ear" 3G network?

Either way, we can't wait for this App to drop!

Tips and How-To's: Screenshot Savvy

If the iPhone is your first smartphone, then you won't fully appreciate the lack of a means to send contacts or files via Bluetooth or IR (infra-red). What if you want to send your Google map to a friend to show him or her the way? What about sending a website link of your winning team to your buddy to rub it in? The iPhone is lacking in some of the more conventional methods of sending data to someone else, but the built-in screenshot capability can do wonders! Read on for more!

Google webpage search results now optimized for iPhone!

Google webpage search results now optimized for iPhone!

Google's Mobile Blog is telling us that they have updated their search results from the Google mobile webpage . The main benefits I have discovered with this update is that there is no longer a need to scroll left and right and that business have easy to touch numbers and addresses that launch the phone and map apps.

Here is the exciting part:

"Over time, we intend to make the newly formatted results pages available through other search entry points on the iPhone."

This is really great news! I think we have all been wanting that dastardly Google Search box to present optimized iPhone results. I guess it is try that Google really "hearts" the iPhone :-) In the meantime, enjoy the gallery and video after the jump!
