It Begins - We Wait in Line, You Wait in Line (Final Update)

It Begins - We Wait in Line, You Wait in Line (Final Update)

Here at the Providence, RI Mall, the halls are filled with lost souls as of 5:45 am, wandering in a state of limbo, unable to queue up because of a short security guard with delusions of importance. Nevertheless, Randyman was kind enough to kick our local line off with the following photo, Will was here at 3:45 am, and the other 6 us are alternately sneaking around the halls or sitting here in the parking lot, waiting for the overzealous security guard's wristwatch to read 6am.

How's your line going?

Mobile Me is Up, Down for Us. How about for you?

Mobile Me is Up, Down for Us. How about for you?

Here at TiPb, we've all had bugs with the leaked 2.0 update and, like the rest of the interw00ts, we're also not getting Mobile Me working reliably since it went live yesterday. Thankfully, Apple has fessed up and admitted that the transition from .Mac has "taken longer than expected" (per Engadget).

The Mobile Me desktop login just worked for me for the first time just now, this morning. I'm successfully pushing data out, but I'm not about to start depending on it for real work. Is it working for you?

That Leaked iPhone 2.0 Firmware Update? It's Buggy

That Leaked iPhone 2.0 Firmware Update? It's Buggy

Those of us who went ahead and downloaded the iPhone 2.0 Firmware Update direct from Apple may have jumped the gun a little too early. There have been some problems with it -- I myself have had a handful of crashes and, yes, a couple of full-on resets. A couple of times these crashes (and one of the reset) happened in the Phone App. The Phone app should be the most SOLID application on the device, so seeing it freeze up and make me drop a call (and wait for a reboot) was disheartening to say the least.

O2 Gone in 13,000 iPhone Orders a Second

Sounded like a great idea, dinnit? Put up a website where your customers could upgrade to the brand-spanking-new iPhone 3G kit, right? Digg effect, meet iPwnage (no, not the hack, the tidal-wave of traffic Apple's little gadget brings with it). It'll Steve your website right quick -- especially when you offer to hand deliver them on launch day!

iPhone 2.0 Already Unlocked?! Total iPwnage!

iPhone 2.0 Already Unlocked?! Total iPwnage!

JAR! Avast ye scurvy 2.0 firmware and prepare to be unlocked!

Didn't take long, did it? Well, actually it did -- the iPhoneDevTeam has been hax0ring away at it since the SDK went wide and Apple, in an attempt to woo legitimate developers, made the beta 2.0 firmware (all 8 versions of it), widely available.

Their latest, release version 2.0, Pwnage tool hasn't gone public yet, but will soon. Are you willing to unlock? 22 countries are getting the iPhone tomorrow, and 50 more are following, but with Apple's tight control of the SDK, my bet is there will still be a few folks out there who want to run anything they dang-well please on their iPhone.

Seems like Gizmodo's Jesus Diaz has just put Apple's new MobileMe push Email, Contacts, and Calendars service through it's iPhone paces and their verdict?

iPhone 3G First Look + Q&A!

D'oh! We should have sent Dieter to New Zealand!

Check out the good, the bad, and the quirky.

Apple TV 2.1 With iPhone iTunes Remote + MobileMe Galleries Now Live!

Apple TV 2.1 With iPhone iTunes Remote + MobileMe Galleries Now Live!

Saw this one coming, didn't you? Apple's new App Store Remote app (FREE!) lets you control iTunes or Apple TV, and .Mac Galleries are now MobileMe Galleries, so that means Apple TV needs an update to.

Could Apple's servers get any busier today? (And how 'bout ours! Yowzers!) Just fire up your Apple TV, go to Settings, General, Software Updates, and let it rip!

My Apple TV updated this morning, and Chad's already thrown his old cable box out the window. Are you updating yet?

iFixit.com iBreaks it Wide Open! iPhone 3G Tear Down Live!

What Jobs puts together, iFixit will tear asunder. Live. On the interwebs.

Seems like they got their hands on a New Zealand unit and promptly began to rip it apart for their -- and our -- education. Sadly, and iPhone 3G was harmed in the making of their post, but if you want to see the guts and maybe do a little iPhonemancy, check it out.

iPhone 2.0 is Live: Start your Updates NOW!

You can grab the 2.0 update a little early, MacRumors notes, you can grab it directly by downloading this file from Apple. Let's get it on!

Note: since this is a separate file, make sure you're backed up to iTunes before you start, this full update will erase all your data and you'll need to have your data backed up in order to restore afterwards.
