iControlPad Turns Your iPhone Into A PSP Look-A-Like

We had mentioned the prototype of iControlPad more than a couple months ago, but it has popped up again looking a little bit more finalized and a lot BIGGER. Back in May, I had compared the original model to a PSP, but I think this edition looks more like the Sega Game Gear from years back. This thing is huge!

Review: Motorola H9 Bluetooth Headset

Review: Motorola H9 Bluetooth Headset

Bluetooth headsets are becoming increasingly popular, on a common day you’d run into plenty of people using these hands-free devices. Some make you look like a bionic man, others simply look bland, but there are a rare few that makes your head turn. The Motorola H9 Bluetooth Headset ($89.95) falls in that head-turner, borderline sexy category.

Sculpted to be no larger than a quarter, the Motorola H9 is sleek, lightweight, and unmistakably TINY. How can they fit a capable Bluetooth Headset in such a small package? Does it sacrifice performance for the sake of good looks? Is it even useful?

Read on for the rest of the review!

Will Venture Capitalists Burst the iPhone App Bubble?

Will Venture Capitalists Burst the iPhone App Bubble?

The self proclaimed World's Toughest Programmer, Mike Lee, who left Delicious Monster to work on iPhone apps for Tapulous has revealed on his blog that he and the Tap Tap Revenge and Twinkle maker have parted ways, and not on the best of terms:

So it came to pass that when my Engineering and Design team had irreconcilable differences with where the company seemed to be headed, I was asked to make good on those promises. Serving as the team’s reluctant spokesman was not in my best interests, but honor dictated my actions. I delivered the team’s message, and was invited to resign.

And what direction exactly was Tapulous headed? The always outspoken John Casasanta, MacHeist creator and iPhone developer, says:

...we’re about to experience in the iPhone world is going to be a bubble along the lines of the one in the late 90s / early 2000s. The vultures are out and and they taste blood. The iPhone’s one of the hottest things around right now and there’s little sign of its popularity letting up anytime soon. And the venture capitalists want in… badly. The fact that the iFund™ exists is overwhelming evidence of this.

NetNewsWire: Web App vs. Native App

NetNewsWire: Web App vs. Native App

People that use RSS often use web-based readers such as Google Reader, Bloglines or NewsGator to view their news feeds. The first two choices are great, but NewsGator has something special on the iPhone; a native app. That's right, no more web apps for RSS, the "news" has gone native baby!

What is NewsGator Online?

NewsGator is a service for personal and professional social networking. They have different applications on many platforms that bring information together. Google has probably coined it best, "RSS is the inbox for the Web". Our focus in this review is with NewsGator's free, personal services for RSS on the iPhone.

NewsGator's web app for the iPhone is called... NewsGator, I know, original. This web app allows for users of the free NewsGator service to view their RSS feeds in an optimized format on the iPhone. Let's take a look at how it works.

Apple Speaks! Security Fix Firmware Coming in September

Dieter's already brought us up to speed on the nasty security bug Gizmodo found in the iPhone's current 2.0.2 firmware (which John Gruber points out Apple already fixed once for firmware 1.1 way back last year -- yikes!). Now Macworld (via MacRumors) reports that Apple has taken the unusual step (for Apple) of confirming the upcoming fix:

iPhone 3G in Canada: Rogers Extends $30/6GB to Sept. 30 + New (and Nasty) Data Plans

iPhone 3G in Canada: Rogers Extends $30/6GB to Sept. 30 + New (and Nasty) Data Plans

My fellow Canadians, if you're already enjoying the virtually "unlimited" goodness and peace of mind that comes with Rogers reluctant, 11th hour $30/6GB promotional plan, then there's nothing to see here. Your rate is good for the length of your contract.

If you haven't jumped on the "deal" yet, however, remember that the plan is set to expire Aug. 31. Or it was... Rogers seems to have extended it -- slightly -- to Sept. 30.

"Murderdrome" Comic Banned From App Store. Duh...

"Murderdrome" Comic Banned From App Store. Duh...

People are remarkable. We can spend time figuring out precisely what we're not allowed to do. Spend even more time doing it. Then spend triple that complaining when we suffer the foreseeable and reasonable consequences of our informed and deliberate actions. Heck, Dr. Phil has amassed a money-bin throwing us up on TV for just such spectacle.

Witness all the PR flackery and blog blustering (present posting included!) going on about the strategic geniuses who decided to go ahead and make an iPhone App Store-optimized engine for navigating and displaying specially formatted comic books.

Was their debut feature a family friendly installment of the Tremendous Super-Spider? Nope. It was "Murderdrome" and it was rejected. Find out why after the jump!

Steve Jobs Not Dead! (But Might Kill Bloomberg News...)

Wow. Anyone remember what Steve Jobs did to the New York Times when they merely inquired about his health? Imagine what he'll do to those poor fools at Bloomberg's who just accidentally published -- and then rapidly retracted -- his obituary. (Our guess? 9-finger Wu-Shi death touch, minimum).

According to Gawker, the obit-fart:

Sugarsync App for iPhone out

Sugarsync App for iPhone out

While the holy grail for grabbing files on the iPhone would probably still be Apple-made iDisk support (as rumored), there are other options out there. Microsoft's Live Mesh is supposedly going to be the very definition of cross-platform once they mange to get all of their clients done -- but file access for the iPhone is pretty much limited to the browser right now.

What's the 3G Problem? Source Close to AT&T Says iPhone Tower Power Drain

What's the 3G Problem? Source Close to AT&T Says iPhone Tower Power Drain

Roughly Drafted is claiming a source close to AT&T has spilled the beans on what's really going on with the iPhone and its 3G connection problems, and what 2.0.2 did to fix it.

In a nutshell? An iPhone 3G running 2.0 or 2.0.1 tries to pull too much power from the network, so when multiple iPhones connect, a tower can actually run out of juice and start dropping calls and losing data.
