Unlocked iPhones Around the World

Unlocked iPhones Around the World

This past Saturday Apple posted a new support page, a simple list of all the carriers currently selling iPhone 3G's and which ones are locked and which ones are unlocked. As all AT&T customers know, our iPhone's are locked down tight until the Dev-Team can do something about it. I suppose if you were that desperate and crafty you could use this list of unlocked carriers to get yourself one, for a hefty fee of course... and be sure to know how to speak fluent Chinese if you want support for one purchased in Hong Kong or Taiwan. ;)

MobileMe Updated in Time for the Holidays

MobileMe Updated in Time for the Holidays

What has the MobileMe team gone and gotten us for the holidays? Why, a slew of pre-New Year updates! Specific to the iPhone:

  • Resolved an issue that could cause some contacts to temporarily disappear on iPhone or iPod touch when syncing with MobileMe over an intermittent network connection; iPhone Software 2.2 is required to take full advantage of this
  • Improves reliability of new email notifications on an iPhone/iPod touch
  • Messages just deleted on iPhone, iPod touch, or a desktop mail application now update more quickly on webmail

And, most importantly to Mac users who previously saw the "push" and "Exchange for the rest of us" labels vanish in a cloud of, er... more like 15 min...

Steve Jobs Giving Keynote at Macworld... or Not?

Steve Jobs Giving Keynote at Macworld... or Not?

In 2007 Steve Jobs strode up onto the Macworld stage, rehashed the Apple TV for a bit, then dropped the shot heard around the consumer electronic universe: iPhone.

In 2008, it was Time Capsule, an iPhone OS update, Apple TV Take 2, and the MacBook Air.

And in 2009?

Er... um... we're not even sure he's going to be there, according to Businessweek (via MacRumors):

Windows Mobile Team Says iPhone Success Validates WinMo?!

Our sibling site, WMExpert's tells us about all the speculation surrounding code-name "pink", which may have to do with some manner of next generation Windows Mobile stuffs. (We've heard whispers of "rouge" as well, so we're guessing there're some real "Lady Marmalade" skunkworks going on).

Round Robin: TiPb vs. HTC FUZE Q&A!

Round Robin: TiPb vs. HTC FUZE Q&A!

[This is an official Smartphone Experts Round Robin post! Every day you reply here, you're automatically entered for a chance to win an iPhone 3G, Case-Mate Naked Case, and Motorola H9 Bluetooth Headset! Full contest rules here!]

So the WinManiacs kicked my butt a bit over the HTC FUZE review. David Pogue was wrong, neither Apple Nuts nor BlackBerry nuts hold a candle to WinMo users scorn. However, I'd counter by saying they were so busy being indignant, they didn't really stop to consider the point of the round robin, or the points raised in the preview or final review. In other words, coming from where we're coming from, iPhone users approaching other devices, we were right, and the enraged WinManiacs... well... read on after the break!

Quick App: Microsoft Labs Seadragon Mobile for iPhone

Quick App: Microsoft Labs Seadragon Mobile for iPhone

Microsoft has just unleashed their first iPhone app! And no, it's not Office. Or an Xbox gamer tag list. Or a Live Mesh client. Now, we make fun of our frenemies from Redmond plenty plenty, but as much as the regular Microsoft platform and services groups and their un-branding serve up humor-fodder galore, the Windows Labs team just make really cool technology previews. Take Microsoft Labs' Seadragon Mobile for iPhone (iTunes link). It leverages their deep zooming Photosynth technology to let you explore huge amounts of massive (think gigapixel) images quickly, and then zoom in for detailed, closer looks.

State of the Apps: Pods Streamed Not Casted, Peeps Blasted, Pull My Finger's Back!

State of the Apps: Pods Streamed Not Casted, Peeps Blasted, Pull My Finger's Back!

Podcaster was rejected from the App Store for duplicating the (at that point upcoming) functionality of the built in iPod app. Seems like Podstreamer (Streamcaster in the Canadian store?!), however, made it in. While the two apps might not be identical, the situation does nothing to alleviate the appearance of capricious, near-random behavior from Apple's approval department. (Thanks benstinson for the tip!)

Super iClone Fun: HTC Touch HD vs. iPhone 3G Video

Super iClone Fun: HTC Touch HD vs. iPhone 3G Video

Okay, well, only for the first few seconds at the very beginning when Dieter proves HTC pretty much made a point of matching the iPhone 3G form factor exactly. Same height. Same width. Same depth. Of course, it's plastic resistive screen isn't the same as the glass capacitive screen of the iPhone -- it's 800x480! (Compared to the iPhone's 480x320), and it packs an auto-focus 5 megapixel camera... (Along with TouchFlo 3D, about which we've done video all our own...)

UPDATED AGAIN: Gizmodo and Lifehacker Go Hands On with Pastebud Copy/Paste for iPhone

UPDATED AGAIN: Gizmodo and Lifehacker Go Hands On with Pastebud Copy/Paste for iPhone

UPDATED AGAIN: Pastebud founder, Jed Schmidt, via the comments, directs us back to Technologizer (see link below) for his update on what was happening:

I’ve updated this issue over at Get Satisfaction[1], but let me just summarize what exactly was going wrong: you were inadvertently forwarding your emails not to your secret pastebud address, but to the address set as the from address for these emails, which was noreply@pastebud.com.

This happened to other folks too; instead of sending email to secret-random-string@pastebud.com, they were sending to noreply@pastebud.com. And everyone who was doing this ended up sharing the same clipboard.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that we’ve fixed it, and the changed will be live by the morning.

PREVIOUS UPDATE/PRIVACY WARNING: Technologizer is showing that they're getting other people's clipboard data in their paste results, including complete emails:

Pastebud’s site addresses security, and says it’s “safe enough” for general use. Based on my experience so far, I think not! But I don’t know if I’m running into some bizarre quirk or doing something wrong, or if this is happening to everyone who’s trying Pastebud as I speak. I just know that I’ve come to the conclusion that using a Web service as a substitute for a feature that should be in a device’s OS may not be such a great idea after all.

This might be a temporary glitch on the server side, but it's a very disturbing glitch and one that might just be a deal-breaker for the security and privacy concerned.
