Polaroid Wants More iPhone Bluetooth Access -- So Say We All?

Polaroid Wants More iPhone Bluetooth Access -- So Say We All?

TiPb received a note from Andy at Polaroid concerning a campaign they're starting encouraging iPhone users to file a feature request with Apple for Bluetooth file transfer access. Polaroid wants this for their Pogo Instant Mobile Printer, but TiPb thinks it's a grand idea for better Bluetooth access of all sorts.

I'm pretty sure we don't have stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) because, well, it's not very good quality and Apple doesn't do "not very good quality" (outside of MobileMe launches, mice, and corporate printer support, of course), but how about letting that gorgeous Apple Bluetooth Keyboard (or any Bluetooth Keyboard) hook up with the iPhone?

$19.99 "Premium Gaming" Section to Hit App Store?

$19.99 "Premium Gaming" Section to Hit App Store?

MacRumors is reporting a... well, rumor, that Apple may introduce a new section to the App Store for "premium" games with a price point at (or above?) $19.99.

The rumors suggests WWDC in June as a likely introduction event, and it would be exclusive to big publishers and allow them to side-step the $0.99 domination of cheaper Apps (some awesome indie fare but also a lot of... well, CrApps) that suck all the air out of the current Top lists.

iTunes Plus Upgrades: Now Serving Singles

When Apple first announced it was going DRM-free at Macworld 2009, they set up a system where users who previously bought the old, lower quality, copy-protected music could upgrade to the new, higher-quality, non-protected music for $0.30 per single track.

iPhone OS 2.2.1 Hints at Next Gen iPhone?

iPhone OS 2.2.1 Hints at Next Gen iPhone?

MacRumors is reporting that both the recent iPhone OS 2.2.1 release, and ad serving reports from Pinch Media show an iPhone model 2,1. The original iPhone was 1,1, the iPhone 3G was 1,2, so if accurate this numbering would not indicate the small bump of the iPhone 3G, but a real next generation device update (similar to the recent, revised iPod touch, which earned it's own 2,1 model last fall).

Whatever Happened to the iPhone's Push Notification Service?

Whatever Happened to the iPhone's Push Notification Service?

TiPb has theorized before that Apple's promised-by-September-yet-still-undelivered Push Notification Service (their alternative to actually allowing 3rd party multi-tasking) hasn't shipped yet because MobileMe taught Apple -- very painfully and publicly -- that it's better to take their time and get push services right than rush them out broken and buggy.
