Apple Breaks Jailbreak in Newly Shipped iPhone 3GS Devices

iClarified is reporting some very unsettling news for those of you looking to pick up a new iPhone 3GS as they say Apple is now shipping iPhone 3GS devices with a new bootrom blocking the 24kpwn exploit. Devices with the iBoot-359.3.2 bootrom began shipping last week and are now being sold in Apple and AT&T stores. This means if you are unfortunate enough to land one of these new devices you will not be able to jailbreak until the Dev Team or George Hotz can come up with a solution.

Apple: There's No $10,000 iTunes LP Charge

Following up on allegations made by an indie label that Apple charges $10,000 for an iTunes LP and wouldn't even allow indie labels access to the program, an iTunes spokesperson responded to Music Week with the following statement:

“There is no production fee charged by Apple. We're releasing the open specs for iTunes LP soon, allowing both major and indie labels to create their own.”

How to Make a Better iPhone Home Screen (Springboard) Concepts

How to Make a Better iPhone Home Screen (Springboard) Concepts

Ocean Observations brings us a couple concepts on how they'd improve the iPhone Home Screen (Springboard). The first, above, embeds a tiny CoverFlow for apps at the bottom of the screen. While interesting, since Springboard currently supports only portrait mode and icon view, as TiPb's asked for before, why not let it rotate to landscape for full-screen coverflow?

Next video concept, and another idea from Tog after the break!

App Store Broken or Developers? Losing iReligion vs. the Two App Stores

App Store Broken or Developers? Losing iReligion vs. the Two App Stores

Is Apple's iTunes App Store broken, a combination of developers racing to the bottom and users getting conditioned -- and feeling entitled -- to pay less than what an app is worth? Or, are some developers not yet savvy enough in terms of planning and marketing to take advantage of the App Store business model?

Since we covered Ramp Champ this morning, it's timely to cover both the thoughts of the developer, Gedeon Maheux, and a response from Tumblr and Instapaper developer Marco Arment that are currently surrounding it.

App Review: TwiBit 2.0 Twitter Client for iPhone

TwitBit 2.0 Forum Review by llofte. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!

Surprisingly, nearly 3 months after iPhone 3.0's release, there are only a few twitter applications that offer push notifications. Twitbit is one of them. Version 1.x wasn't compelling enough for me to use as my primary client, but the latest 2.0 update is rather impressive and brings Twitbit up to par with other great Twitter clients. The design is clean and simple yet not lacking in important features.
