iPhone Wi-Fi sync app submitted to App Store

iPhone Wi-Fi sync app submitted to App Store

While the Apple TV (and even the lowly, lambasted Zune!) has had Wi-Fi sync for a while now, Apple hasn't seen fit to break the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad free of their iTunes tether, so developer Greg Hughes has decided to do it for them -- and submit it to the App Store.

Based on the video it looks like once a pairing is setup between your iPhone and iTunes you're good to go. And that's where this whole story might just come off the rails -- if Hughes is using anything other than public APIs, and if Apple even allows other apps to interact with iTunes on the desktop. Hey, they could even reject it on general usability grounds -- that aforementioned Apple TV and Zune need to be plugged in anyway to handle the power-drain of Wi-Fi sync, which takes some of the luster off, and even 802.11n Wi-Fi is slow compared to USB.

So, could this app pull an Opera Mini and get in, or it will it get slammed with the rejection hammer and leave us waiting for a cloud-based iTunes.com announcement from Apple before our iPhones go wire-free?

iPad Camera Kit packs USB keyboard, headset support surprise?

iPad Camera Kit packs USB keyboard, headset support surprise?

The iPad Camera Kit has started showing up in the wild and while its name indicates it's intended use as a way to import digital camera pictures and video into the iPad, it looks like there's some surprise support for USB keyboards and audio headsets along for the ride.

For those unfamiliar with the Camera Kit, it's two small dongles, one of which is an SD/SDHC card reader and the other is a straight-up USB port. It's the latter of the two that's creating the stir.

Prototype iPod touch with camera on eBay... for a few minutes

Prototype iPod touch with camera on eBay... for a few minutes

What with that iPhone HD/iPhone 3G showing up on Gizmodo and now two prototype iPod touch devices temporarily showing up on eBay, we'd sure hate to be Apple's prop master right now.

Oh, you didn't hear about the iPod touch (with cameras!) yet?

Someone has put up two semi-working iPod touches WITH cameras and a development version of the iPod OS on Ebay. They are marked with 'DVT-1' and 'DVT-2', 'Apple Development Team' and one is running some sort of 'switchboard' OS window.

Apple posts pro-tips on how to best move your Mac Keynote presentations to iPad

Apple wants you to get the most of your Keynote presentations when you move them from the Mac to the iPad, and they've put a Knowledge Base article to show you just how to do it.

From recommended themes to page sizes, fonts to image formats (PNG if you're curious), to compressing the bits out of the various elements to keep the file size small enough for the iPad's anemic memory.

If you live in Keynote on the Mac and the iPad, put these pro tips to use and let us know how they work for you!

Police investigating iPhone HD/iPhone 4G incident

Police investigating iPhone HD/iPhone 4G incident

The circumstances surrounding that iPhone HD/iPhone 4G prototype that surfaced online this week are now officially being looked into by local law enforcement:

Apple has spoken to local police about the incident and the investigation is believed to be headed by a computer crime task force led by the Santa Clara County district attorney's office, the source said. Apple's Cupertino headquarters is in Santa Clara County, about 40 miles south of San Francisco.

None of the parties directly involved have commented yet, and seriously we don't expect them to at this point since anything they say could literally be used against them.

Google Maps Navigation might NOT be coming to iPhone...

No sooner did the UK announcement of Google Maps Navigation bring word that an iPhone version would follow... some day, then Google goes into disaster recovery mode and says, um, uh... maybe not:

"We did not say we would bring it to iPhone, we said to date we've had it on Android and that in the future it may come to other platforms but did not confirm this will be coming to iPhone at all."
