CDMA iPhone on its way to China, Korea, and Japan?

Looks like the CDMA variant of Apple's iPhone might eventually make its way to carriers in China, Korea, and Japan. According to the not always reliable Digitimes, Apple suppliers currently expect around 7 million CDMA iPhones to be sold in the first quarter of 2011. That's a lot of iPhones, no matter how you look at it.

Google Places with Hotpot Released for iPhone.

Google Places with Hotpot Released for iPhone.

Google have released Google Places with Hotpot on the iPhone. For those of you who aren't familiar, Google Places is a free app that allows you to find local businesses and rate them, and with their new 'hotpot' feature, Google can suggest new places you'll like, based on your previously ratings.

The app uses your location to suggest nearby places for you to rate. You can give a standard star rating out of 5, and depending on the location, optional ratings including: Food, Atmosphere, Value and Service.

You can view ratings from most review sites such as Yelp or Qype, as well as Google's own ratings and it comes with 9 separate categories as standard (Restaurants, Coffee Shops, Bars, ATMs, Gas Stations, Hotels, Attractions, Pizza Parlours and Post Offices) but you can add personal searches as well, to cater to your tastes.

This isn't a 'check-in' application like Gowalla or Foursquare, but this is more similar to apps like Yelp or AroundMe.

What do you guys think about the new Google Places? Will you be using it? Let us know.

[Free - iTunes Link]

Seas0nPass makes for easier AppleTV Jailbreak

Seas0nPass makes for easier AppleTV Jailbreak

Seas0nPass has just been released for jailbroken AppleTV users. Up until now, there hasn't been easy to use jailbreak tools for the AppleTV. Hopefully Seas0nPass can change all that.

Seas0nPass offers some of the same basic functionality utilities like PwnageTool already offers iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users. It will currently jailbreak the most current version of AppleTV iOS (4.2.1). Seas0nPass for AppleTV also offers an easier tethered boot option as well as an ability to create and restore from custom firmwares (IPSW) files. This will be nice for users on newer firmwares that may not offer an untethered option yet.

Currently Seas0nPass is only available for Mac users running Mac OS 10.6 or later but a Windows version should be coming soon.

Find My Friends feature hidden in iOS 4.3?

Find My Friends feature hidden in iOS 4.3?

It looks as though we will be seeing a new feature soon in iOS called Find My Friends, an extension to Find my iPhone that could be similar to services such as Google Latitude.

A reference to the name was found in the iOS 4.3 beta for developers and it appears to be linked to MobileMe accounts. If it is similar to Latitude, it would allows you to track your friends via their iPhone's GPS (Naturally you would have to agree to broadcast your position so as to protect your privacy).

New T-Mobile ad attacks AT&T and Verizon

New T-Mobile ad attacks AT&T and Verizon

T-Mobile has a new ad that pokes fun at the iPhone 4 on both AT&T and Verizon. It has the same flavor as the "I'm a Mac" commercials and the man playing the part as the iPhone 4 has both Verizon and AT&T with him, but he can't tell them apart because he is slow on both networks - they don't have "nationwide 4G" like T-Mobile.

[T-Mobile is calling HSPA+ "4G"

Check out the ad after the break!

iOS 4.3 for iPhone and iPad in 5 minutes [video]

Here we go, everything you need to know about iOS 4.3 for iPhone and iPad in just 5 minutes -- orientation lock/mute switch toggle, multitouch navigation gestures, and Wi-Fi personal hotspot.

If you don't have a lot of time but do have a lot of curiosity, just hit the video up top, sit back and watch, and then let us know what you think in the comment below.

Note: If you're running iOS 4.3 and you can't get the multitouch gestures to work, try connecting to Xcode and hitting the "use this device for development" link. That should make the toggle pop up in Settings.

Now iPhone will be getting those gestures and iPad that hotspot... right?

Screenshots after the break!

No iOS 4.3 love for iPhone 3G?

No iOS 4.3 love for iPhone 3G?

It looks like Apple isn't showing any iOS 4.3 love to the iPhone 3G. No formal announcement has been made about the lack of support but no official iOS 4.3 beta download has been made available either, not for iPhone 3G or the 2009 iPhone touch 2.

Would Apple really cut off the iPhone 3G with iOS 4.3 and not wait for iOS 5? Do you think iOS 4 performance issues are to blame?
