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.

And, of course, here come the CDMA iPhone 4 on Verizon rumors

Digitimes is once again baiting links with CDMA (read Verizon) rumors, this time hot on the heels of the all new iPhone 4:

Pegatron [Technology] will also start shipping a CDMA version of the iPhone 4 to Apple in the fourth quarter and is currently using its plants in Shanghai, China to produce the products, the sources noted. The company is also working on gaining orders for MacBooks and iPads from Apple, added the sources.

Which iPhone 4 feature are you most looking forward to?survey software

TiPb's done an iPhone 4 preview but I'm still curious -- which iPhone 4 feature are you most looking forward to? Did Apple have you at FaceTime? Are you drooling over that massively dense Retina Display? Or is it the hot custom silicon in the Apple A4 chipset that gets you going? With over 600,000 pre-orders the first day, something sure is making Apple's newest handset popular.

iOS 4 updated: Dropbox, Quota, Fandango, FlightTrack, more

iOS 4 updated: Dropbox, Quota, Fandango, FlightTrack, more

Not only has Apple released iTunes 9.2 to the masses, they seem to be approving and releasing apps updated for iOS 4 compatibility now as well. If you haven't checked your updates tab in a while, it may be time to tap that App Store icon on your iPhone or check in iTunes.

Out of my 100 or so apps I have installed on my 3GS, I've seen about 4 or so apps in the past 12 hours receive updates for iOS 4 compatibility. I'm assuming that number will only grow over the next couple of days as developers ready themselves for the release of iOS 4. Now that doesn't mean they have any iOS 4 specific features -- it just means they've been compiled with the iOS 4 SDK.

Some apps will have much more significant updates than others of course. So far I've seen updates for apps such as DropBox, Quota, Fandango, FlightTrack and a few others. Quota is touting the fact that it's supporting the higher resolution of the iPhone 4 in its update straight away. I'm curious to see which other developers will do this straight out of the gate. I hope most do as I can't wait to run higher resolution applications on my new iPhone 4!

Streaming music, navigation/location, or VoIP (voice over IP) app in the background are some of the big ones of course. Saving state for fast task switching is something we hope is also rolled out quickly and universally.

Hit the break for some screenshots of some I've found as well as a video from one of our readers demonstrating the in-app SMS feature Apple has given developers and API for. Thanks Ethan! Any of you find any apps that are running iSO 4 compatibility yet? Leave 'em in the comments!!

iPhone orders pushed back further. New shipping date: July 14.

iPhone orders pushed back further. New shipping date: July 14.

Last night, Apple sold out of iPhone 4's with a June 24 delivery date and pushed back all orders to July 2. Now those orders have sold out and the new shipping date is July 14.

It's no question that the iPhone 4 is a huge hit this year, more so than previous years. We learned earlier that 600,000 iPhone 4 orders were placed yesterday. With the shipping date being pushed back yet again, how many orders do you think have been placed now?
