MobileMe web apps back online with updated mail UI, app switcher

As was widely expected, Apple's MobileMe web apps -- me.com -- are back online after their scheduled maintenance, and sporting an updated look and some new features.

The new Mail has come out of beta and now everyone can enjoy server-side rules, which is terrific if way overdue. In the not-so-terrific pile, previously you could instantly switch between apps using a conventional menu bar. Now you have to figure out that clicking the cloud icon top left will bring up and icon bar which you can then click to switch tasks. Less discoverability and efficiency in one update? Not very Apple.

(They've standardized on the iPhone app icons to represent Me.com tasks, however, which is good. And they look great.)

Are you trying to new Me.com? What do you think?

UPDATE: Apple's MobileMe email announcement, after the break.

iPhone live podcast #104 - Pre-ordermaggedon!

Apple's up and down, AT&T is on and off. Best Buy is and isn't. We're talking timeouts, delays, fails and foibles, and for the few, the relieved -- order confirmations that may or may not be honored. That's right, if you're reading this you might just have survived iPhone 4 pre-order day!

What happened to iPhone 4 "July" release in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.?

What happened to iPhone 4 "July" release in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.?

Apple Online Canada has changed the date for iPhone 4 release from "July" to "soon", while the Australian and New Zealand Apple Online Stores only show iPhone 3GS -- no iPhone 4 in sight.

Thin, yes, but when you consider US sales of the iPad on April 3 were higher than expected to the degree all international iPad releases were pushed back a month, it's not like it's out of the realm of possibility. 600,000+ iPhone 4 pre-orders and US delivery dates getting pushed further and further back into July -- yeah, it raises eyebrows.

Will a rush on stage 1 iPhone 4 release countries push back stage 2 countries? We're hoping not, but we're keeping both eyes fixed on those pages.

AT&T to count Micro Cell usage against data limits?!

AT&T to count Micro Cell usage against data limits?!

Business Insider claims that AT&T is going to count Micro Cell usage against your data limits. Go ahead, curse like you're in a Tarantino pic, we'll wait...

Here's the nut: AT&T will sell you an iPhone (or any phone) and sign you up to an expensive, tiered, capped, service contract even if they have lousy reception in your home or office. Then, if you want better reception, they'll sell you a $150 Micro Cell dongle that attaches to your broadband cable or DSL modem (which you pay for) and route your calls over your ISP instead. Then, if the reports are correct, they'll deduct the data you use over your wired network from your wireless plan. Use 1GB over Micro Cell, you only have 1GB left on your 2GB plan.

Case-Mate Gelli Checkmate Case for iPad - accessory review

Case-Mate Gelli Checkmate Case for iPad - accessory review

The Case-Mate Gelli Checkmate Case for iPad is a beautiful way to add grip and color to your iPad. It is made with a soft silicone base that makes holding your iPad easy and much more secure.

The Case-Mate Gelli is easy to apply and remove from your iPad. The case is translucent so it allows the back of your iPad to still show through. The case also has a triangle pattern on it which gives the case a bit of style in comparison to a regular plain silicone case. The case is very easy to put on the iPad and has open spaces to allow for all the buttons and ports and controls. The case goes over the edges of the iPad so it will protect the iPad against minor impacts.

Case-Mate Gelli Checkmate Case is about 2 to 3 mm in thickness at it greatest points so it is still lightweight but also durable. This case is a nice silicone case as it has good grip but does not feel sticky as some other silicone cases can. I have been using this case for a week and I am quite happy with it. I would have liked if it came with a screen protector.

If you like silicone cases and you like the color selection then the Case-Mate Gelli Checkmate Case for iPad could be what you're looking for.

Apple posts WWDC session videos for developers

Apple has, with lightning quickness, posted videos from the WWDC sessions online for developers. And here's the terrific part -- they've made them available to ALL registered developers, not just those who bought expensive tickets to the event.

Terrific idea. If you're a developer who couldn't attend, you'd be crazy not to jump on this.

iPhone 4 confirmed to have 512MB of RAM

iPhone 4 confirmed to have 512MB of RAM

TiPb first heard rumors that iPhone 4 would finally beef up onboard RAM to 512MB back in January and it looks like those rumors are now being confirmed via information given out during the WWDC Advanced Performance Optimization Session.

Why does RAM matter? Going from 256 to 512MB of RAM let the Palm Pre go from multitasking a handful of apps to well over 50. That's why RAM matters.

Updated: NOPE! Verizon Droid X NOT getting 720p to battle iPhone 4 Retina Display?

Updated: NOPE! Verizon Droid X NOT getting 720p to battle iPhone 4 Retina Display?

Verizon has a teaser up for their new, big DROID X which is claiming a 4.3", 720p display (which is usually 1280x720) -- a significant challenge to the iPhone 4's 3.5" 960x640, LED IPS Retina Display.

It's more pixels but it's also a bigger display, so it could net out to the same pixel-per-inch count -- somewhere above the magical 300 mark. It's also teasing HDMI out.

Begun these display density wars have?

Hotmail now pushing via ActiveSync to iPhone?

Our good buddy George Ponder over at sibling site <a href="http://www.wpcentral.com/hotmail-gets-exchange-activesync-support tell us Microsoft Windows Live Hotmail, officially slated to get ActiveSync support sometime this summer, might just be already up and running:

Liveside.net is reporting some users are having success in syncing their Hotmail accounts through ActiveSync. Through trial and error, the server address has been identified as m.hotmail.com, SSL should be enabled, and you leave the domain blank. Obviously you enter in your username and password accordingly.
