Apple to Allow Limited Background Multi-Tasking for Apps in iPhone 3.0?

Business Insider rumormongers that Apple might be considering some limited form of multi-tasking, perhaps as early as iPhone 3.0, which would allow 3rd party apps to run as background tasks. They point to two possible models:

iPhone 3.0 "ChinaBrick" Reference Connected to China Mobile Demands for Disabling Wi-Fi and 3G?

iPhone 3.0 "ChinaBrick" Reference Connected to China Mobile Demands for Disabling Wi-Fi and 3G?

In a move designed to make even notorious Wi-Fi stripper Verizon seem liberal by comparison, China Mobile's outstanding demand that Apple strip the iPhone of both Wi-Fi and 3G if they want to sell to the worlds largest carrier just got an uncomfortable shot of "maybe" via Apple Insider:

while there's no concrete information to suggest Apple would agree to make such concessions, references to "ChinaBrick" discovered in betas of iPhone Software 3.0 leave room for debate.

Friday Fun Video: TiPb Screaming for Palm Pre to Bring it On!

Friday Fun Video: TiPb Screaming for Palm Pre to Bring it On!

You're the world champion, but some old-school commentators keep talking like maybe you're yesterday's news. They say you haven't faced any real challengers lately, that you're getting soft. They say that some new device is looking hungry.

But here's the thing: you know you've still got it. You know it and you want to prove it. You want to fight. You want to fight now!

But the challenger just ain't showing up. And worse, they ain't even saying when they will finally show up. Makes you so riled you just want to SCREAM!

iPod touch and iPod nano to Get Cameras?

8

iPod touch and iPod nano to Get Cameras?

We'd heard rumors about the iPod touch getting a camera already -- makes sense and would tie it even more closely to the iPhone OS. HardMac (via MacRumors) is now saying the iPod nano will as well.

Sounds plausible as it provides an easy way for Apple to both strengthen ties within their ecosystem and incrementally update both platforms in time for the holidays.

Best Buy Prepping for 3 New iPhone SKU's Code-Named "Charlie"?

PhoneArena (via Engagdget) was sent a tip that Best Buy has 3 mysterious new product SKU's listed in their system as "PROJECT CHARLIE". Why is this important and what does it have to do with iPhones?

ZOMG! We're 3 weeks before WWDC here people! Everything is iPhone!

Mac OS X 10.5.7 Optimized for Intel Atom Netbook/iTablet Class Processor?!

11

Mac OS X 10.5.7 Optimized for Intel Atom Netbook/iTablet Class Processor?!

Yeah, this story is thin. iPod nano thin. But Wired (via MacRumors) is claiming that Apple recent Mac OS X 10.5.7 Leopard update gives netbooks running the software (aka Hackintoshs) a significant boost to battery life (up to 33%).

This has led to some speculation that Apple maybe -- just maybe -- built in better power management and other optimizations for lower end processors like the Intel Atom.

Apple, AT&T Sued over... Shazam App Existing?

Apple, AT&T Sued over... Shazam App Existing?

We typically don't follow every little Apple or AT&T lawsuit that closely because, frankly, there are too many of them and the frivolity of some just harshens our collective mellow. Case in point, according to Apple Insider:

Apple, AT&T and several others have been named in a new patent infringement lawsuit, presumably for their connection to Shazam, a maker of music identification software distributed under the same name for the iPhone and several other mobile devices.

Thursday Fun Video: Rainbow/Unibody iPhone Concept Renderings

If it's May, it must be pre-WWDC insanity season, and TiPb is expecting lots of leaks, fake leaks, and fake fake leaks. Also, lots of fun fanboi renderings like the videos embedded above and after the break, courtesy of Business Insider.

Not real, no way, but are these anything like the iPhonechromatic or Unibody models you'd like to see Apple release at some point?

iPhone Dev-Team: Mac OS X 10.5.7 Safe for Jailbreak, Fixes DFU Bug

iPhone Dev-Team: Mac OS X 10.5.7 Safe for Jailbreak, Fixes DFU Bug

Good news for Mac OS X-based Jailbreakers! After having to resort to using powered USB hubs or patching in older versions of files to work around a bug in 10.5.6 that prevented DFU mode from being recognized, the iPhone Dev-Team dropped a note a Twitter to give 10.5.7 the all-clear:

The new 10.5.7 Leopard update is safe. In fact it's more jailbreak-friendly than 10.5.6, since the DFU-mode bug is gone.

So no nasty cat-and-mouse-game shenanigans this time around, and even a slight improvement over the previous -- unintentional -- round.
