Office 2.0 Conference Attendees to Receive Free iPhones

Office 2.0 Conference Attendees to Receive Free iPhones

Organizers behind Office 2.0 Conference have come up with an ingenious, if costly, incentive to drive attendance to their upcoming developer/partner conference. Registered attendees and speakers will receive free 4GB iPhones. Where do I sign up? Well not so fast. A single attendee registration costs $995 through July 31 (that's tomorrow), after which the registration price jumps to $1,495. If you're a developer living in the Bay area, and had already planned to attend O2O, this is a no brainer. However, this conference price (even with iPhone) seems unusually high to me.

PopCap Announces Bejeweled for iPhone, Free!

GameDaily reports that PopCap Games has released a free web based version of its popular Bejeweled puzzle game for iPhone. Users can access the game by visiting www.popcap.com on their iPhones - Bejeweled loads automatically. I tried it out myself and found the experience to be incredibly disappointing. It's nearly impossible to precisely select a specific jem, and often my taps weren't recognized at all.

But, hey it's free. So who can argue with that?

Chapura Announces FoldedMirror for iPhone

Chapura Announces FoldedMirror for iPhone

Chapura has added a new application to its product lineup, called FoldedMirror. What this application does is enable iPhone users to connect with Outlook Calendar and Contacts folders right from their device, by mirroring data created on a PC running Microsoft Outlook. A host PC is required, with Outlook running at all times, in order for this process to work. FoldedMirror doesn't come cheap, however. A single user license will set you back $49.95. Ouch!

I haven't yet put this software to the test since I already use a hosted Exchange account but it looks very promising. You can read the full press release here.

Find the Nearest Bar or Brothel With Earthcomber

Find the Nearest Bar or Brothel With Earthcomber

Earthcomber is an interesting location-based service that bills itself as a "personal radar", providing an organized list of events and entertainment in relation to where you are. Just type mobile.earthcomber.com on your iPhone (Earthcomber will work with ANY web capable mobile phone) and Earthcomber's server will detect your locale. From there you are provided with category-based list of services such as Food, Music, Movies, Recreation & Sports, Adult Entertainment, etc.

The service works really well, based on my own testing. Not only did it correctly identify various entertainment venues in my area, I was even provided with basic mapping and driving instructions as well.

iFuntastic enables users to easily create custom ringtones and make various tweaks and changes to the iPhones settings and GUI, right from within from within a very simple interface.

Hackers Release "Hello World" Binaries, First Third Party iPhone App

Hackers Release "Hello World" Binaries, First Third Party iPhone App

Today iPhone is one step closer to gaining third party software support, unofficially of course. Hackers from the #iPhone IRC channel managed dissect embedded OSX's source libraries and create a basic proof of concept application that does nothing more than display the words "Hello World". The devs have now released these source binary files on public servers, available for anyone to download.

This is by no means the final solution in opening iPhone to software developers (that will come only through Apple), but I'll take third party software any way I can get it. Even it is the result of a raped and violated hack 'n slash effort.

Angry User Files Class Action Suit Against Apple And AT&T Over iPhone's Non-Replaceable Battery

Angry User Files Class Action Suit Against Apple And AT&T Over iPhone's Non-Replaceable Battery

Not everyone loves their iPhone, it seems. Jose Trujillo, whoever the hell that is, has begun a class action suit against both Apple and AT&T, claiming damages as a result of the iPhone's non-replaceable battery that, according to Jose, can only be charged 300 times. Apparently he didn't check facts before filing. Had he done so he would have known that the battery is in fact good for 400 charges and beyond. Even at that point the battery DOES NOT need serviced - it simply won't hold a full charge.

Still, I blame Apple for unnecessarily creating this issue in the first place by bolting down the hood, so to speak, and failing to clearly disclose the battery's true lifespan and performance.

Tunji Afonja from Efiko Software informs me that he has created a new custom ringtone application that enables iPhone users to roll their own ringtones, bypassing Apple's lame default set of barely audible tones. Thank God someone developed this software. The Marimba sound is getting on my nerves!

Texterity Puts Mobile Magazines at Your Fingertips

Texterity Puts Mobile Magazines at Your Fingertips

An online media service called Texterity delivers mobile editions to popular print magazines right to your iPhone, via Safari. In a nutshell, what Texterity does is simply digitize each print magazine page, turning it into an image file that can then be displayed and viewed within Safari much like a photo. Just point your browser (from the iPhone) to http://iphone.texterity.com/magazines/. Tap on any magazine that you like and a fully illustrated thumbnail library appears, representing pages from the selected magazine. Using the "Pinch" gesture, allows you to zoom and drag any portion of the document, making it readable. Believe it or not this is a workable solution. I've tried it myself.

C|Net Compares Apples to Oranges, With iPhone vs.Nokia N95 Shootout

C|Net Compares Apples to Oranges, With iPhone vs.Nokia N95 Shootout

I don't know about you, but I just can't get enough of pointless product comparisons. It's like watching a building burn to the ground. They have a certain hypnotic effect that seizes your attention and keeps you fixated on each biased point. So it comes as no surprise when major media companies engage in lame attempts to grab our eyeballs with idiotic iPhone vs. insert something here as a way of generating ad revenue. Hey, someone has to click on those Google ads to keep the lights on.

Apple Sold 270,000 iPhones Within First 30 Hours of Launch, Spends 1.2 Billion in Sidewalk Cleanup Costs

Apple Sold 270,000 iPhones Within First 30 Hours of Launch, Spends 1.2 Billion in Sidewalk Cleanup Costs

Yesterday's earnings report from Apple contained several nuggets of information sure to make any wall street jokey salivate. For starters the company posted yet another record breaking profit-heavy quarter - the folks in Cupertino are celebrating over that, I'm sure. Sales of iPods are flatlining. And over 270,000 iPhones were sold within the first 30 hours, starting on June 29. This throws a glass of iCe water in the face of AT&T's report disclosing that only 146,000 were activated over the weekend of iPhone's launch - news that put many analysts on anti-depressants.

Harry Potter Surpasses iPhone on Buzz Meter, Analysts Worried (Again)

It was bound to happen eventually. Now the long lines of techno fetishists waiting in front of Apple Stores to buy a phone have been replaced by lines of creepy 40 year olds dressed as wizards, standing in front of bookstores to buy a children's book.
