If you are a big online gamer and own a Xbox, 360 Live [$1.99 - iTunes Link] is the app for you. There are many apps within the App Store that perform many of the same functions as 360 Live but none of them are this well integrated.
Boy Genius has an unconfirmed source claiming that, as part of Apple's rumored iLife 2010, long-ignored iDVD will finally see an update -- and that update will be support for iTunes LP (and we're assuming iTunes Extras) creation/authoring.
Fring [Free - iTunes link] dropped us a note to let us know that with version 18.104.22.168 -- now in the App Store -- they've delivered on their promise of video calls for the iPhone.
Now, since the iPhone doesn't (yet?) have a front-facing camera, you're limited to seeing the other person on a Skype or Fring Video call using their PC webcam (or Nokia phone -- sigh, jealousy), but it's still a wondrous step towards the future.
If you give it a try, let us know how it works for you.
Actor Luke Wilson and AT&T are at it once again and this time they want you to know all about AT&T's rollover minutes. Yes, it is true that AT&T lets you use your unused monthly minutes but keep in mind, they eventually do expire after a year if you do not use them. We do not mean to keep beating the same drum but come on AT&T, quit spending money, time, and effort on these mediocre commercials and spend time on making your network better for everyone.
As AT&T keeps pumping out the commercials Verizon/Motorola are not sitting quietly on the sidelines. They've gone and released another Droid commercial that takes aim at, you guessed it, Apple's iPhone. This latest commercial caters to the male consumers and pretty much paints the iPhone as being nothing more than "pretty". Smart move as the Motorola continues to beat Apple in brand loyalty with males 18 years old and up.
Gizmodo isn't waiting for the new year to shoot old rumors into the stratosphere, gossiping that the Google Phone (an honest-to-Jobs unique, branded phone by Google) is in a fact a fact, runs the here-to-fore unseen "real" Android (yes, everything from the G1 to the Droid has been running fakety fake fake Android), and is about to flood Google's HQ for testing:
Our best guess is an Android OS with Google Voice at its heart.
Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch) related, they're fair game.
So who's on deck this week and what are our picks? Find out after the break!
Before Google showed off Chrome OS, essentially the Chrome Browser running on top of an ultra-lite Linux Kernal, TechCrunch's Michael Arrington tried to will something very similar into existence -- a capacitive touchscreen CrunchPad tablet that would run Firefox and nothing else.
The rumored price tag rose and "delays" seemed to abound, and now it looks like the little CrunchPad that almost could will never be:
You already knew TiPb's very own store is having a huge sale today and if that isn't enough, Amazon has an excellent deal on the 2nd generation 8GB iPod touch. For $158 you can nab one with free shipping along with a small bonus of a $5 Amazon MP3 Store credit.
