Quick App: Microsoft Labs Seadragon Mobile for iPhone

Quick App: Microsoft Labs Seadragon Mobile for iPhone

Microsoft has just unleashed their first iPhone app! And no, it's not Office. Or an Xbox gamer tag list. Or a Live Mesh client. Now, we make fun of our frenemies from Redmond plenty plenty, but as much as the regular Microsoft platform and services groups and their un-branding serve up humor-fodder galore, the Windows Labs team just make really cool technology previews. Take Microsoft Labs' Seadragon Mobile for iPhone (iTunes link). It leverages their deep zooming Photosynth technology to let you explore huge amounts of massive (think gigapixel) images quickly, and then zoom in for detailed, closer looks.

State of the Apps: Pods Streamed Not Casted, Peeps Blasted, Pull My Finger's Back!

State of the Apps: Pods Streamed Not Casted, Peeps Blasted, Pull My Finger's Back!

Podcaster was rejected from the App Store for duplicating the (at that point upcoming) functionality of the built in iPod app. Seems like Podstreamer (Streamcaster in the Canadian store?!), however, made it in. While the two apps might not be identical, the situation does nothing to alleviate the appearance of capricious, near-random behavior from Apple's approval department. (Thanks benstinson for the tip!)

Super iClone Fun: HTC Touch HD vs. iPhone 3G Video

Super iClone Fun: HTC Touch HD vs. iPhone 3G Video

Okay, well, only for the first few seconds at the very beginning when Dieter proves HTC pretty much made a point of matching the iPhone 3G form factor exactly. Same height. Same width. Same depth. Of course, it's plastic resistive screen isn't the same as the glass capacitive screen of the iPhone -- it's 800x480! (Compared to the iPhone's 480x320), and it packs an auto-focus 5 megapixel camera... (Along with TouchFlo 3D, about which we've done video all our own...)

UPDATED AGAIN: Gizmodo and Lifehacker Go Hands On with Pastebud Copy/Paste for iPhone

15

UPDATED AGAIN: Gizmodo and Lifehacker Go Hands On with Pastebud Copy/Paste for iPhone

UPDATED AGAIN: Pastebud founder, Jed Schmidt, via the comments, directs us back to Technologizer (see link below) for his update on what was happening:

I’ve updated this issue over at Get Satisfaction[1], but let me just summarize what exactly was going wrong: you were inadvertently forwarding your emails not to your secret pastebud address, but to the address set as the from address for these emails, which was noreply@pastebud.com.

This happened to other folks too; instead of sending email to secret-random-string@pastebud.com, they were sending to noreply@pastebud.com. And everyone who was doing this ended up sharing the same clipboard.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that we’ve fixed it, and the changed will be live by the morning.

PREVIOUS UPDATE/PRIVACY WARNING: Technologizer is showing that they're getting other people's clipboard data in their paste results, including complete emails:

Pastebud’s site addresses security, and says it’s “safe enough” for general use. Based on my experience so far, I think not! But I don’t know if I’m running into some bizarre quirk or doing something wrong, or if this is happening to everyone who’s trying Pastebud as I speak. I just know that I’ve come to the conclusion that using a Web service as a substitute for a feature that should be in a device’s OS may not be such a great idea after all.

This might be a temporary glitch on the server side, but it's a very disturbing glitch and one that might just be a deal-breaker for the security and privacy concerned.

App Store Updated to Better Showcase Apps

App Store Updated to Better Showcase Apps

Apple Insider, quoting TouchMeme developer Krishna Vegesna, reports that Apple has made some changes to the way it displays applications in the App Store, which they break down into three areas:

-- Most popular apps are now highlighted in each category page -- Free apps are separated from -- and hence no longer dominate -- paid apps in the side bar -- Tweaked the design to make it more consistent with the iPhone App Store app

App vs App: Classics vs Stanza eBook Readers for the iPhone

App vs App: Classics vs Stanza eBook Readers for the iPhone

It seems that e-book readers are going to be technology's next big thing. With the Kindle being named Oprah’s favorite gadget and other e-book reading devices battling for pole position, the e-book reader is populating daily culture. But who wants to pay that much money for a dedicated reading device that is admittedly limited and still has no true standard format?

Insert iPhone. We all know that the iPhone does a great job in converging multiple devices, why not add being an e-book reader to its capabilities? Obviously we won’t have any e-ink technology in the iPhone but the e-book readers in the iPhone, Classics and Stanza, offer ease of use and a great free selection—plus you don’t have to plop down an extra 400 dollars to read a book.

See what we think of Classics and Stanza in our App vs App!

Is the $199 iPhone Still Too Expensive?

23

Is the $199 iPhone Still Too Expensive?

With the launch of the iPhone 3G, Apple dropped the price point to a carrier-subsidized $199 for the 8GB model. Naturally, that led the usual suspects to complain it wasn't cheaper. It should be $99. It should be free. They should pay us $199 to take it!

Somewhat -- if only slightly -- more seriously, however, that's pretty much what Apple Insider says Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty's studies are showing, with fully 46% turning their nose up at the current price point. She claims that sales of the iPhone 3G were half as strong in September and October when compared to July and September, and suggests:
