Sponsored Post: Macheist Bundle -- $627 of Apps for $39
Not strictly speaking a sponsorship but a referral -- if you want a Macheist bundle, and decide to buy through TiPb, you get the same great Mac software bundle for $39 and we get a small percentage for sending you their way.
Tapbot was kind enough to give us a sneak-peak at Convertbot, their latest app, which converts units of power, pressure, speed, temperature, time, volume, work, angle, area, currency, length, and mass with the same kind of fun, fantastic interface they brought to their previous app, Weightbot (see our interview).
Rotate the wheel, old-school iPod style, to pick your category, tap to lock in the first unit, confirm, tap to lock in the second unit, confirm that, and you're ready to go. (You can also tap the center button to change the direction of conversion at any time -- i.e., miles to km, km to miles).
Rather then the generic keypad, Convertbot drops down it's wheel to reveal a custom job, complete with backspace.
It's a simple application done with a lot of care and consideration. It's the kind of app we need more of. Full gallery after the break.
It's summer 2009 and iPhone OS 3.0 has just been made available via iTunes. You have it up and running along with next gen Twitter clients, instant massagers, RSS readers, and all manner of Push Notification-enabled apps ready to alert you the very instant anything new is piping hot and ready.
Yesterday CrackBerry Kevin had a little funny at TiPb's expense with their "Confessions" post of a Ruby Park strip. Fine. Two can play at that game. Above, via PvPonline, is the new official response to anyone bringing a BlackBerry into a "just works" place. B'okay?

Was it because early developers were seasoned, professional Mac veterans who took the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) seriously? Who knows. What we do know is that iPhone OS 3.0, following last Tuesday's beta release, is running rampant over the internet. Somewhat less than honorable "developers" are even offering to "sell" access to the 3.0 beta. Yikes.
This has led to a lot of users getting, or at least thinking about getting, the 3.0 beta for their own iPhones.
The App Store, even with 25,000 applications, is still a new market and one we're all, developers, users, and media alike, trying to figure out. Developer James Thomson recently did an experiment to see how Twitkitteh, a fun little app, would compare in terms of sales and earnings, to his acclaimed PCalc in the App Store.
The Motorola MOTOPURE H15 Bluetooth headset is available and can be purchased in The iPhone Blog Store for $109.95. If you are looking for an absolutely smokin' Bluetooth headset, checkout this review! Let’s see how it measures up after the break!
There's so much going on in iPhone gaming right now, it's almost as hard to keep up with that as with iPhone 3.0. Two large industry shows bookend much of the current news, iGames Summit and Game Developers Conference (GDC). With multiple awards, great discussions on the future, and a slew of upcoming product announcements, we figured we'd take a moment and round things up...
