IM+ 3.1 [$5.99 - iTunes link] has hit the app store with support for push notifications. We wrote about the new version a few days ago, and for those longing for IM style push Twitter support (yep, Twitter can work via IM, and IM+ can push notify you of DMs, @mentions, etc) it's worth checking out.
Our only question -- Is this beginning of push twitter tennis?
Part of the "S stands for Speed" boost in the iPhone 3GS' bullet points is support for faster HSPA 7.2Mbps data transfer. The giant honking asterisk at the end of that sentence, however, is usually "where supported by carriers, real-world speed will be epically slower".
So, real world TiPb community, just how fast is your new iPhone 3GS? I posted a few results above for what I'm getting on Rogers in and outside Montreal. Let us know what carrier you're on, and what speeds you're averaging?
BGR served up a rumor that Telus in Canada was getting the iPhone 3GS in October. How will a CDMA carrier get the GSM iPhone? Simple, as mentioned last year, Telus has partnered with Bell to expand their CDMA network by adding in HSPA. That means Bell Mobility could support the iPhone 3GS as well, and the rumor's TiPb's hearing is they just might (though exact timing will of course depend on how fast they get HSPA up and running).
In a post on the YouTube blog product manager Dwipal Desai and community manager Mia Quagliarello say that the number of videos uploaded to the sharing site from mobile phones has jumped 400 percent a day since the iPhone 3GS’s release last Friday.
Gizmodo earns geek cred elite by getting the one and only (unless he's figured out how to clone himself) Bill Nye, the Science Guy, to explain just how the iPhone 3GS' oleophobic coating works -- molecularly -- to reduce smudges and make it super easy to wipe clean.
We don't understand a word of it, of course (something about Drow magic maybe?) but do head on over and give it a read!

There has been a lot of buzz going on in the forums regarding jailbreaking the iPhone 3.0 software lately, and a lot of questions to go along with it!. Today we’re going to take a deeper look at the exact steps you have to take to get your iPhone 3G with the 3.0 software, jailbroken on your Windows PC machine. We used Windows XP in this example, but Windows Vista shoul
After braving 4 hours in line on Friday morning, I was able to walk away with a 32GB iPhone 3GS in white. So what do I think? There are more than a few things that impress me about the iPhone 3GS. These observations are from using the device, not from mere published technical specifications. Let's start to tackle them one at a time shall we?
Tiger Woods PGA Tour for iPhone is currently 30% off for a limited time [$6.99 - iTunes Link]. To celebrate, they're giving a lucky TiPb reader a free copy for the iPhone (technically a gift certificate) and for the Xbox 360!
