TiPb Give Away -- 10 FREE Copies of PCalc RPN Calculator for iPhone

PCalc [$9.99 - iTunes link] is a great RPN Calculator for the iPhone but now developer James Thomson is curious as to what users would like to see in an iPad version. How curious?

Smartphone Round Robin Wrap Up: Contest Winners Announced and Some Closing Thoughts!

Smartphone Round Robin Wrap Up: Contest Winners Announced and Some Closing Thoughts!

6 platforms -- Google Android, RIM BlackBerry, Nokia S60 and Maemo, Palm webOS, Microsoft Windows Phone -- 10 devices, and almost as many weeks later and the final week of the 3rd Annual Smartphone Round Robin brings yours truly back to iPhone!

And I won't lie -- I'm loving it. It's great to be back. All the other platforms have their strengths and highlight a few of Apple's remaining weaknesses, and this is the first year I can honestly say that if there was no iPhone I could find a device on each and every one of them to live and work with. The iPhone, however, remains for me the most fully realized, most user friendly, most consistent, most convergent device on the market.

What has my time away taught me? What have I learned to appreciate more about the iPhone, and what have I come away wishing Apple would straight out steal from the other platforms?

I've already reviewed the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3.x OS before, but now I'm going to take a broader, wiser, look at it again -- and I'm going to do it after the break.

Google Paying 100 Million a Year for iPhone Search?

Google Paying 100 Million a Year for iPhone Search?

Silicon Alley Insider claims, according to a source, that Google pays Apple $100 million dollars a year to be the default search engine for the iPhone. Frenemies indeed:

For Apple, that's not a lot of money. But, it's enough that it doesn't make sense for Apple to put considerable resources towards building its own Internet search engine. And, if Apple wanted more money or options, there's Microsoft -- with Bing and a big checkbook.

Review: ScreenGuardz Privacy Screens for iPhone

Review: ScreenGuardz Privacy Screens for iPhone

NLU Privacy ScreenGuardz [$19.99 - iMore Store link] come from the same folks who make BodyGuardz and represents the first -- to my knowledge -- 4-way privacy screen for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.

I had the chance to see the ScreenGuardz at CES in January, and was able to test it out throughout Macworld 2010, and it works well. (And yes, they had a picture up for an iPad screen already!)

4-way refers to both vertical and horizontal privacy, meaning that when your iPhone is in portrait or landscape mode, the field of view is obscured to the degree that while you can still see it, anyone sitting next to you trying to spy on you can't. It looks either mostly or completely black to them, depending on the viewing angle.

In terms of drawback, while the view from the front remains clear it does look slightly darker (think Avatar 3D glasses) so you may want to pump up your brightness slightly to compensate. Also, if you want to let the person next to you see your iPhone -- to watch a movie or help with Maps directions, for example -- you're out of luck. There's no such thing as selective privacy!

Application is simple and the case is thin, though you'll feel a slight ridge around the Home button cutout.

If you have sensitive information on your iPhone, or just don't appreciate snoops on the plane, train, or bus (or the desk next to you!) then it's definitely something to check out.

For more, check out the video from Macworld 2010, after the break, where NLU installs a ScreenGuardz on my iPhone (and yes, it stopped Leanna from peeking over my shoulder completely!
