Nintendo: iPhone May Damage Sales

Nintendo: iPhone May Damage Sales

Warning that its profits may decline, Wii and DS manufacturer Nintendo played the "current economic conditions" card but also laid a new one on the gaming table -- increased competition thanks to Apple's iPhone and iPod touch.

The newly launched Nintendo DSi is seen as a partial response to Apple's new gaming model, according to Electronista, which includes an on-device digital App Store, rather than the cartridge based physical media traditional gaming companies have thus far preferred.

Regarding that Leaked Black "iPhone" Bezel...

Turns out that leaked black bezel that made the internet rounds prior to the iPhone 3GS' rounds was... actually for a Creative Zii Egg. Says CNET Asia provides the picture, and MacRumors the short version:

The Zii Egg is a multi-touch iPod touch-like device that runs Google's Android operating system. The device, though, bears a strong resemblance to the leaked bezel images, suggesting that it had simply been mislabeled all along.

Black Hat: SMS Attacks Not Just for iPhones

Black Hat: SMS Attacks Not Just for iPhones

Technologizer is reporting on the developing story on SMS attacks coming out of today's Black Hat Conference sessions. Seems like while the iPhone is grabbing a lot of attention, almost all GSM phones are said to be vulnerable. Basically, they get around the anti-spoofing security and send data designed to get access and take control of the phone.

On the iPhone specific side, however:

Steve Jobs Pictured at Apple

TMZ caught Steve Jobs leaving the Apple campus. So now, yes, he's been captured on film and all gadget perfectionists everywhere can sleep soundly.

So, our take away is that a) Steve Jobs is a paparazzi level technoceleb. Congrats. b) he was reportedly

Once again everyone here at TiPb wishes him well, and hopes that he's enjoying whatever fourth or fifth gen iPhone is in his pocket and will be revealed to the rest of us in the years to come.

Stealth update time in Apple-land this morning, as Time Capsule has doubled in storage to 1TB/2TB configurations ($299/$499). The dual-band routers inside the Time Capsule, identical to those in the latest Airport Extremes, support both fast 802.11n networking for modern computers, and simultaneously, 802.11g for mobile devices like the iPhone and iPod touch.

If you've been wanting to go dual-band and have a hankering to hunker down with a 2TB hard drive as well, Apple now has a glossy white option just for you:

RUMOR SMASHED: Apple Going to CES 2010, Steve Jobs Asked to Keynote?

RUMOR SMASHED: Apple Going to CES 2010, Steve Jobs Asked to Keynote?

UPDATE: Ryan Block returns to Engadget to smash this rumor:

The Wall Street Journal is reporting, almost off-handedly, that Apple is planning to attend CES 2010, a trade show it has avoided up until now, and arguably eclipsed in 2007 when it announced the original iPhone at the then similarly timed Macworld Expo.

Poll: Could Verizon Handle the iPhone?

Poll: Could Verizon Handle the iPhone?

Techcrunch asks the impertinent question: can AT&T handle the iPhone. The pertinent answer thus far is: no. The iPhone is a consumer success the likes of which no smartphone has experienced before. There are more users using more features that consumer more bandwidth that likely even Apple or AT&T ever estimated, and it's put an extreme hurt not only on existing infrastructure, but a hurt that's growing faster than infrastructure expansion can handle.

Jabra SP200 Bluetooth Speakerphone for Hands-Free iPhone 3G/3GS Action

Jabra SP200 Bluetooth Speakerphone for Hands-Free iPhone 3G/3GS Action

The Jabra SP200 Speakerphone for iPhone 3G/3GS [$59-95 - iMore Store link] is a great Bluetooth headset alternative that you really have to try yourself to fully appreciate. I can not recommend it enough.

I've been using the Jabra SP200 for about a month now and I can honestly say that I've stopped using every single Bluetooth headset I own while driving my car. Simply connect the SP200 to your cars visor, flip the power switch and you are good to go. And go you will - Jabra claims the battery life comes in at 10 hours of talk time and 23 days of standby time. I am happy to report that these claims are dead on accurate.

Now to get to the most important part of a Bluetooth device, sound quality. I was pleasantly surprised on how well not only the person I would speak to sounded, but how well I came across to them as well. Volume is definitely not an issue with the SP200 as not once have I had to turn it up to it's full capability.

Quick App: Apple Releases MobileMe iDisk App for iPhone

Quick App: Apple Releases MobileMe iDisk App for iPhone

Apple has released MobileMe iDisk [Free - iTunes link] for iPhone and iPod touch. Announced during WWDC 2009 back in June, with nary a peep -- though lots of questions and conjecture -- heard since then, MobileMe iDisk showing up in the App Store today should be the kind of surprise that no longer comes as one.

Using the app, similar to how 3rd party solutions worked previously, you can log into MobileMe, see the contents of your iDisk, view any supported file formats (the typical jpg, png, Microsoft Office, iWork, and audio/video files), swipe to delete, and otherwise move through the file system.

When you tap on a file, you can also choose to share it or trash it. Sharing opens up an Email Link window where you can forward on access information via email. Shared files show up with a green Shared label and icon in list view there after. (Expired shared items show up with orange labels and grayed-out icons.)

Like Remote (and unlike Keynote Remote and Texas Hold'em), Apple's fourth App Store entry is free. If you try it out, let us know how it works for you. If you already use a 3rd party iDisk utility, let us know how it compares.

Screenshots after the break!

[Thanks to AppAdvice for the tip!]
