You want your iPhone 4 unboxing gadget pr0n early? Well, thanks to YouTube and a couple premature deliveries, it's here. Now, reportedly Apple's activation servers aren't up and running yet, so unboxing is about all that can be done with iPhone 4 for the moment, but who are we to deny even that simple pleasure?

UPDATE: More videos below, keep sending them in!

iPhone 3GS on iOS 4 with AT&T unlimited data plan, experiencing loss of data?

iPhone 3GS on iOS 4 with AT&T unlimited data plan, experiencing loss of data?

Just heard from one of the folks we know who updated his iPhone 3GS to iOS 4 yesterday only to lose his AT&T data connection completely. Today, when he could no longer even place calls, he contacted AT&T who, after several escalations, informed him there are isolated incidents of iPhone 3GS on iOS 4 with unlimited data plans no longer being able to connect to the network.

They told him they're working with Apple to fix it, and put him name on a contact list so they could let him know when it was resolved.

Google Voice now open to everyone (in the US)

Google Voice now open to everyone (in the US)

If you're in the United States of America and have been waiting on a Google Voice invite, wait no longer -- Google has just opened up the service to everyone! (They've even got the nifty infographic above to show you how happy they are about it).

If you're not in the US, yeah, sorry, sux0rs for you. Like Google Navigation, they'll probably start rolling it out, slowly, to a few places, one day, maybe. (Not that anyone is bitter).

If you're a long time user or just signed up, let us know what you think of the Google Voice service -- even if you're limited to the Google web app (or Black Swan) on the iPhone.

Video after the break.

Griffin Jumper case for iPad - accessory review

5

Griffin Jumper case for iPad - accessory review

The Griffin Jumper [$27.95] is a nice neoprene case for the iPad. If you're in the market for a sleeve for transporting your iPad, this case may be what you're looking for.

The neoprene material of the is excellent because it doesn't need to be very thick to provide protection. It is also very stretchy so that there is a snug fit around your iPad. In fact, the Jumper was almost too snug when I first received it; but after a few uses, the neoprene stretched out just enough to be snug but not a challenge to use.

The inside of the Griffin Jumper is lined with a very soft fleece-like material. There will be no concern of your iPad receiving scratches when sliding it in and out of the sleeve. In fact, a few of the fingerprints on your iPad likely get wiped off when removing it from the Griffin Jumper.

The Griffin Jumper offers full protection of the iPad except at the corners of the flap. Many times there is a very small part of the iPad exposed at one or both of the corners. This may be cause for concern for some, but I don't see it as a huge problem. Something would have to poke into the spot in order to make contact with the iPad.

I have been very pleased with the Griffin Jumper. The nice slim design, soft interior, and tough neoprene exterior make this an excellent sleeve case for the iPad.

The Griffin Jumper is available from the TiPb iPad accessory store.

Jailbreak How-To: Back Up Apps in Rock and Cydia

Jailbreak How-To: Back Up Apps in Rock and Cydia

In lieu of iOS4 and iPhone 4 next week, we know a lot of you will be upgrading to either a new OS or new hardware altogether.  Those of you that jailbreak may find backing up your jailbroken apps a lot easier than reinstalling everything once you re-jailbreak.  Now keep in mind, I wouldn't suggest upgrading if you're unlocked as unlocks are never a sure thing until they're released.  But if you're just jailbreaking, we're already aware of a working jailbreak that's ready for iOS4.  Given nothing changes, this should ease your transition.

Before we proceed, one more warning; as with any OS upgrade on iDevices, not all apps will be compatible immediately.  We saw this with 3.0 with things such as custom keyboards not working.  This may very well be the case again, so if you have jailbreak apps you just can't live without, make SURE they'll be compatible with iOS4 before you upgrade. Now hit the jump for Cydia and Rock back-up walkthroughs!

Updated: iPhone 4 already on delivery trucks, in hands! [Sticky]

Updated: iPhone 4 already on delivery trucks, in hands! [Sticky]

Our tip lines, and all of Twitter it seems, is afire in claims that some iPhone 4 are already on delivery trucks and even in users' hands. Hey, crazy things happen in crazy times but we'll believe it when we see it (in non-blurry cam pics, in your real-life full-framed hands, okay?)

Given those Apple emails about iPhone 4 pre-orders arriving a day early, FedEx confusion could see them moving around already. Or some people with nothing better to do could be using that uncertainty to play internet pranks just for the lulz.

Sigma for iPhone - app review

3

Sigma for iPhone - app review

Sigma is a puzzle matching game for the iPhone. It is well made and fun to play.

The goal of Sigma is to match three blocks of the same color to blow them up and get points. This game is played in landscape, and on each side of the screen there is a roll of colored blocks. If you tap on the left of the screen, then the center block on that roll will shoot to the right side (and vice versa). Once you make a match, you have a few seconds to add more blocks. The more blocks in your match, the higher your score.

Matching five, six, seven or eight blocks produces special blocks. With five, you are given a block that when used in a match, blows up every block in that row. A match of six gives a block that blows up every block in that row and column. The special block when matching seven is a color bomb, which blows of every block of the color it is matched with. Lastly, a match of eight blocks creates a nuke bomb that blows up every block on the screen.

Sigma has three game modes: Sector, Time Attack, and Multiplayer. In sector mode, the goal is to clear blocks as fast as you can to fill up the progress bar before time runs out. In Time Attack Mode, the goal is to get the highest score possible within the time limit of one, five, or ten minutes. You can play against a friend via wifi or bluetooth in Multiplayer Mode. The fun twist is that if you fill the progress bar, an obstacle block will appear on your opponents screen.

If you like matching games, I guarantee you'll enjoy Sigma. It is designed well, fun to play, and a challenge to score high. If you decided to pick this on up, let us know what you think!
