O2 Gone in 13,000 iPhone Orders a Second

Sounded like a great idea, dinnit? Put up a website where your customers could upgrade to the brand-spanking-new iPhone 3G kit, right? Digg effect, meet iPwnage (no, not the hack, the tidal-wave of traffic Apple's little gadget brings with it). It'll Steve your website right quick -- especially when you offer to hand deliver them on launch day!

iPhone 2.0 Already Unlocked?! Total iPwnage!

iPhone 2.0 Already Unlocked?! Total iPwnage!

JAR! Avast ye scurvy 2.0 firmware and prepare to be unlocked!

Didn't take long, did it? Well, actually it did -- the iPhoneDevTeam has been hax0ring away at it since the SDK went wide and Apple, in an attempt to woo legitimate developers, made the beta 2.0 firmware (all 8 versions of it), widely available.

Their latest, release version 2.0, Pwnage tool hasn't gone public yet, but will soon. Are you willing to unlock? 22 countries are getting the iPhone tomorrow, and 50 more are following, but with Apple's tight control of the SDK, my bet is there will still be a few folks out there who want to run anything they dang-well please on their iPhone.

iPhone 3G First Look + Q&A!

D'oh! We should have sent Dieter to New Zealand!

But thanks to the power of the interwebs, Engadget head honcho Ryan Block has his hands all over a Vodafone NZ unit, and is willing to field all your geeky questions. Flash? Pics? SMS? Exchange? Will it blend?

Check out the good, the bad, and the quirky.

Apple TV 2.1 With iPhone iTunes Remote + MobileMe Galleries Now Live!

Apple TV 2.1 With iPhone iTunes Remote + MobileMe Galleries Now Live!

Saw this one coming, didn't you? Apple's new App Store Remote app (FREE!) lets you control iTunes or Apple TV, and .Mac Galleries are now MobileMe Galleries, so that means Apple TV needs an update to.

Could Apple's servers get any busier today? (And how 'bout ours! Yowzers!) Just fire up your Apple TV, go to Settings, General, Software Updates, and let it rip!

My Apple TV updated this morning, and Chad's already thrown his old cable box out the window. Are you updating yet?

iFixit.com iBreaks it Wide Open! iPhone 3G Tear Down Live!

What Jobs puts together, iFixit will tear asunder. Live. On the interwebs.

Seems like they got their hands on a New Zealand unit and promptly began to rip it apart for their -- and our -- education. Sadly, and iPhone 3G was harmed in the making of their post, but if you want to see the guts and maybe do a little iPhonemancy, check it out.

iPhone 2.0 is Live: Start your Updates NOW!

You can grab the 2.0 update a little early, MacRumors notes, you can grab it directly by downloading this file from Apple. Let's get it on!

Note: since this is a separate file, make sure you're backed up to iTunes before you start, this full update will erase all your data and you'll need to have your data backed up in order to restore afterwards.

Apples Releases iPhone Config Utilities

Apples Releases iPhone Config Utilities

The hits just keep on coming this morning. Next up, TUAW noticed a few new downloads on Apple.com - specifically they're iPhone configuration utilities that look to be the perfect tool (until there's OTA setup) for administrators in companies that have deployed iPhones. There's a web utility for both Mac and Windows and also a more powerful Mac utility. The basic idea here is you set up a simple file (just XML) with certain settings like:

iPhone 3G: 1 Day and Counting Down to the Next Great Computing Platform!

iPhone 3G: 1 Day and Counting Down to the Next Great Computing Platform!

This is it. We're in the home stretch. 99 meters down and 1 left to go, all or nothing, and Steve Jobs has just tapped into the speed force. Tomorrow we find out if Apple crosses the finish line first, the two-peat for greatest smartphone (even gadget) in the world, or if they trip themselves up with their mostly evolutionary, not so much revolutionary, next generation handset.

Saturday we mentioned one big change: the fast 3G data chip. Sunday it was GPS. Monday we tackled the 2.0 Firmware update. Tuesday we detailed the rebirth of .Mac: MobileMe. Wednesday we hit the mother load, App Store. Today we pull it all together and look at the iPhone 3G, the next great computing platform.

Why am I calling it that? Read on to find out!

iTunes Uses Bonjour to Announce Itself to Apple Remotes

iTunes Uses Bonjour to Announce Itself to Apple Remotes

This will come as a surprise to precisely no-one, but it looks like iTunes announces itself over Bonjour when you turn on "Look for iPhone and iPod Touch remotes" under the advanced preferences. Above are my iTunes Remote details that popped up in Bonjour Browser after I clicked the iTunes' check box.

Sadly, there are no remotes to read the signal just now, but it does seem likely that some enterprising hackers may someday be able to use this info to hack together iTunes remotes for other platforms besides iPhone 2.0. Because, you know, there are still going to be people out there that don't use the iPhone. :D
