According to their tipster, the “engineering and development is basically done” and that it comes in a slimmer and thinner form factor, but get this, no video playback. I'm not so sure of an iPhone without video, it kind of steps away from what Steve Jobs envisioned the iPhone to be--a multi-tool for the future. No video? That's too 2004 for my taste.
Every week, we'll be bringing you a tip, trick, or quick how-to on how to keep your iPhone ship-shape. You'll be able to see them all in our tip archive.
The young lady that cuts my hair told me a horror story today. I just about broke into a sweat listening to her tale of terror. A recent iPhone convert, she was at home in her bathroom (hostile environment for all things electronic), putting her make-up on, and with a careless sweep of her arm, her iPhone scored a perfect "10" from the high dive straight into the commode.
Panicked (as you can imagine), she fished out her iPhone, immediately turned it off, and dried it as best she could. Waiting a day, she tried turning it on, but no dice -- it seemed to have given up the ghost in the machine. Still filled with hope, she carried her iPhone in her pocket the rest of the day and, amazingly, it came to life.
All was not well, though. Having made it through a drowning and near-death experience, her iPhone's "Home" button no longer worked -- her iPhone was useless; a mere night-light.
If your iPhone encounters water (or falls in your mug of ale), retrieve it immediately, power it off, dry it as best you can with a cloth, and click the bookmark you just made for this article. You did that, right?

Apple also took home honors for desktop (iMac), laptop (MacBook Pro), MP3 player (iPod Touch), and peripheral (keyboard).
Not to be confused with a news or RSS reader, Reader is meant for reading text documents, either an ebook or document. Sound interesting? Look no further than dBelement's Reader web app for iPhone. This is a great idea for a web app and I really see innovation here that could lead to the way that we handle document creation tools on the iPhone. Let’s take a closer look…
It is with sadness we report the passing of Stan Flack, the founder of both MacCentral and MacMinute. He passed away quietly today (Monday) at his home in Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Stan has been in the Mac industry since 1994 when MacCentral first went online as a weekly publication. Things were a lot different back then - the Internet as we know it was in its infancy - but Stan saw a way to make a successful business.
Mr. Flack certainly contributed to the Apple community and will certainly be missed. He is considered by many to be a pioneer in Mac journalism. For the complete story, head over to Macworld.
Novell is committed to providing a solution that allows users access to their email, calendar and contacts on the iPhone. As the SDK was just released, we are still working out the details and will announce more specific plans when appropriate.
