Apple airs 4 new iPhone 4 ads and they're all about FaceTime

Apple has begun airing 4 new iPhone 4 commercials and once again, it's all about FaceTime, and heavy on the emotion and sentimentality. Titled Smile, Meet Her, Big News, and Haircut, each focuses on a moment of shared intimacy, of insecurity and anticipation, of surprise and joy. And they do it in a way that makes the visual integral to he communication.

Again, incredibly smart advertising on Apple's part, and another step towards mainstreaming video calling and the way they're doing it...

It's no longer about their being an app for that. Now it's about there being a phone -- specifically iPhone 4 -- for that.

Videos after the break.

iPad 3G speed test: built-in 3G vs. Google Android and Palm Pre Plus Mobile HotSpot Wi-Fi tether

iPad 3G speed test: built-in 3G vs. Google Android and Palm Pre Plus Mobile HotSpot Wi-Fi tether

One of the questions we get all the time is whether or not it's better to get an iPad with built-in 3G (which costs $130 more for the device, $15 or $30 for the service), or to get an iPad Wi-Fi and tether is via Mi-Fi or to a Google Android or Palm webOS device running Mobile HotSpot software (which costs 0 to $30 for the option).

Of course, Apple currently doesn't offer Mobile HotSpot on the iPhone, or a way to tether the iPad via the existing Bluetooth or USB feature, so you're out of luck there.

We ran two (admittedly unscientific) test just to see how the iPad would perform, both natively and when tethered to a Nexus One running Android 2.2 Froyo, and a Palm Pre Plus. First we put all three through the Speed Test app, and then we loaded a web page on each to get a feel for real-world performance. (Cache, cookies, and history cleared, of course.)

And the results varied quite a bit. Check out the video above for highlights and continue reading for more...

Class action lawsuit over iPhone/AT&T exclusivity gets certified -- should it go to court?

Class action lawsuit over iPhone/AT&T exclusivity gets certified -- should it go to court?

The class action lawsuit against AT&T's US iPhone exclusivity has been certified, which means a judge thinks it meets the legal requirements to go forward. If you remember back, The crux of suit states that customer contracts are 2 years, but the AT&T exclusivity is 5 years -- so customers were falsely lured to AT&T for 5 years, not 2 -- if they want to keep iPhones, that is. The lawsuit seeks to include all current AT&T iPhone customers.

iPhone 4 Jailbreak - In theory?

iPhone 4 Jailbreak - In theory?

Geohot has updated his blog to let us know that he's apparently jailbroken his iPhone 4 in less than one day.  There's a little caveat though -- he's said he probably won't release it.  Well I guess my question is, what's the point in posting it up then?  Most people are familiar with Geohot's blackra1n and purplera1n jailbreak tools.  They were simple and downright easy.
