UPDATED: Verizon Attack Ads -- Claim iPhone iDoesn't do What Android 2.0 Droid Does

UPDATE: TiPb asked a few non-geek friends and most of them didn't even realize Verizon was targeting the iPhone in these ads (some thought the commercial was saying whatever device they were talking about didn't do the things listed). Is that an ad-failure, or was it deliberately targeting geeks?

Secondly, Sacha Seagan over at Gearlog brings up the now apparently dual, and now opposite meaning behind "open application" buzzwords - a device totally controlled by Verizon.

Thirdly, does the push for the Droid explain why Verizon seemingly buried the BlackBerry Storm2 announcement?

Original post after the break!

App Review: iGo My Way 2009 – North America

App Review: iGo My Way 2009 – North America

(iGo My Way 2009 – North America For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!)

iGo My Way [$79.99 - iTunes link] is the fourth turn-by-turn app I have reviewed. As with the other three, I have used the app around town as well as planning for a long trip (the same trip I have taken with the others). It generally suggested very reasonable routes, it had the vast majority of POI’s that I was looking for (in fact, I don’t recall a single instance where I couldn’t find something). So how did it compare in the long distance travel?

ATSC Mobile to Bring Digital TV to Your iPhone?

ATSC Mobile to Bring Digital TV to Your iPhone?

The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) has approved a standard for mobile digital television, which means one day you might be able to watch your local station broadcast directly to your iPhone. In the US, that should include ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC.

Would Apple ever build a TV receiver into the iPhone, given their focus on iTunes digital downloads? If they're considering an FM Radio, why not? With live-pause and tagging technology, it just becomes a value-added feature for users and another potential gateway to iTunes content.

Plus, sports for the sport fiend!

The Competition: Android 2.0 Eclair Screenshot Leaks!

The first screenshots of Google's upcoming Android 2.0 Eclair OS have leaked and, aside from being a cream-filled, chocolate covered confectionary of a codename, eh... we're not quite sure what to make of them. They're better, but are they HTC SenseUI better?

Quick App: Layar (Augmented) Reality Browser for iPhone

Quick App: Layar (Augmented) Reality Browser for iPhone

Layar Reality Browser [Free - iTunes link] is technically an augmented reality browser for the iPhone 3GS (it depends in large part on the compass to work its wonders).

For the uninitiated, augmented reality typically uses GPS location and internet data to layer information on the screen over live video. In Layar's case, for example, to show local search results for "pizza" over the restaurants in an intersection you're looking at on your iPhone.

Updated: EyeTV App Error Allows Streaming TV over 3G?

Unlike the recently redeemed VoIP, streaming TV over 3G to an iPhone is still a no-no according to AT&T's terms of service, but has an error (or "error") on the part of EyeTV [$4.99 - iTunes link] developer Elgato allowed them to go where SlingPlayer is still forbidden to tread?

Don't Expect AT&T iPhone Tethering Until 2010

Could it be we won't see iPhone tethering on AT&T's network until 2010? 9to5mac recently posted a saying to expect tethering on the network before the end of the year. An AT&T spokesman responded with the following statement:

<

blockquote>Just reading again – where did anyone promise tethering by EOY? Where did you see that? We promised MMS by end of summer and ended up being a few days late for that…

AT&T's iPhone MMS Displaying Incorrect Sender Number

Ross Miller of Engadget is giving more credibility to some of the reports of iPhone MMS on AT&T's network being a little wonky. It seems as if some users sending MMS messages are having their pictures delivered, but with the message on the recipients end displaying an incorrect phone number for the sender.
