Which way do you prefer to type on your iPhone? There are a lot of options -- horizontal or vertical keyboard, two hands and double thumbs or one hand holding and the other poking. If you're using iPhone 4, have you changed the way you type to avoid covering the lower left hand corner?
Let us know your primary or preferred typing method in the poll above, and if you switch things up for certain apps, or have any special tricks to make the text fly, let us know the details in the comments.
Apple last updated iLife during the Phil Schiller-led Macworld 2009 keynote but since then, even as iOS, WebKit, and HTML5 have been on the rise, there's been no sign of another update. Enter Mac4ever, which is rumoring:
Once again it looks like Apple might get some heat for something that it doesn't control -- namely the supply of iPad screens which LG now warns are constrained to the point international roll-outs might need to be delayed.
Given how much Apple does on their own, we sometimes forget they're still at the mercy of other companies -- even competing companies -- when it comes to components, like LG for screens, and Samsung for chips.
A bunch of readers are telling us AT&T and Alcatel Lucent have fixed the issues with HSUPA (high speed uploads) and their iPhone 4's a positively racing up the information superhighway again. Not everyone in every place seems so lucky, however, as our good friend @TCPJ_Mickey, still seems to be chugging along sub-100 in Arizona.
YouTube is experimenting with a new i-frame based embed style that would server up good ole' Flash video for machines that support it and new fangled HTML5 video for Apple's iOS devices, iPhone and iPad:
An enhancement to our video embed capability is now available through a new embed code style. This new style uses and looks like this:
So, somewhere down the road, you'll be able to play the YouTube video you want, in-line on the website you want, on the device you want, Apple and Adobe be damned.
Just a quick update on some freshly released iOS 4 goodness today. As you know, Ally has been watching the App Store for iOS4 compatible updates and if you guys find anything especially awesome, feel free to leave it in a comment or send it to her in an e-mail (ally (dot) kazmucha (at) tipb (dot) com) and if we think it's awesome too, we'll include it in our next roundup!
Chain Link is based on the concept of creating as many links as you can and dragging them into the vortex in the middle of the screen without disturbing any other types of links. The game starts off fairly easy and gets harder pretty quick. There's also support for OpenFeint to share your scores with your friends and other Chain Link users. I found the game pretty addicting after a while. Hit the jump for more screens and a walkthrough.
Apple has posted yet another competing smartphone attenuation video, this time rounding out their infamous collection with Motorola's just-launched Verizon Droid X. The video shows the aforementioned monster of a phone dropping from 3 out of 4 bars to none when death-gripped.
Once again, however, no demonstration is made of any iPhone 4-style death-touch de-tuning.
So yeah, you can imagine how our friends over at Android Central are reacting...
Who does that leave for next, Palm, LG? Does Apple need to finish what they've started or just let it go already?
