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.
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.
Want to chat with random strangers via your iPhone 4 front-facing camera, and expose yourself to every hope and horror that entails? Well, yeah, you guessed it -- there's now an app for that (and we're guessing, like LED flashlights, there'll be many soon enough).
Given the demographics you're more likely to end up face-to-facing a pant-less Mosspuppet than an anything-less Angelina Jolie, but you launch your app and you take your chances, and you can always swipe to go to someone else.
Given the iTunes account hacks last week, and again yesterday, we figured it was a good time to go over the basic ways you can reduce the chances of having your own iTunes -- or any other -- account hacked.
Sure, many of you regular readers already know all this, but take it as an opportunity to forward the link on to friends, family, and co-workers who might not.
Note, we're not security experts, these are just the tips and tricks we use to make our own accounts more secure, and some of the things we've learned -- sometimes the hard ware -- to avoid.
Tweetings for iPhone is a full featured Twitter client complete with push notifications. Last week we looked at the iPad version of Tweetings, so this week we'll look at the iPhone version. In many ways, it's very similar. The layout is extremely similar and it also offers things such as push notifications. The iPhone version also adds themes into the mix as well.
It's definitely a worthy contender against the big guys like Twitter for iPhone (formerly Tweetie) and Twitteriffic. Read on for screens, a feature run down, and how you can win a copy of Tweetings for iPhone from TiPb!
A bit of a roundup this afternoon as the cell phone inventor Martin Cooper, personal computer inventor Steve Wozniak, and advertising revolutionary Larry Page all give their opinions on iPhone vs. Android.
Martin Cooper went on CNN with this zinger:
"I think that the Android phones are catching up now, and the latest version of the Android phones are every bit as good, if not better, than the iPhone."
Of course, the accuracy of statements about which is better are inversely proportional to their generality. Don't tell us which, tell us why.
Remember the little photo booths at amusement parks you would cram into with a bunch of friends to get a strip photos printed? IncrediBooth is an app designed to mimic that experience. It uses the front-facing camera on the iPhone 4, so this app is only available for the iPhone 4.
