App Review: MYST for iPhone

App Review: MYST for iPhone

MYST Forum Review by msbaylor. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!

Note: I did not review this quite as in-depth as I normally would as I felt that reviews regarding Myst are all over the place and I would be just be repeating what everyone else says, so I just commented on the port itself.

For those of you that do not know what Myst is, it is a port of the old Myst computer game. Myst is an adventure puzzle game in which you are attempting to find your way off the island, or rather attempt to figure out how all the things around you work.

Having played the original Myst, the iPhone version is just like it. It consists of multiple 3D still images that fade from one to another depending on the area of the screen you touch.

iPhone 3.0 "ChinaBrick" Reference Connected to China Mobile Demands for Disabling Wi-Fi and 3G?

15

iPhone 3.0 "ChinaBrick" Reference Connected to China Mobile Demands for Disabling Wi-Fi and 3G?

In a move designed to make even notorious Wi-Fi stripper Verizon seem liberal by comparison, China Mobile's outstanding demand that Apple strip the iPhone of both Wi-Fi and 3G if they want to sell to the worlds largest carrier just got an uncomfortable shot of "maybe" via Apple Insider:

while there's no concrete information to suggest Apple would agree to make such concessions, references to "ChinaBrick" discovered in betas of iPhone Software 3.0 leave room for debate.

Friday Fun Video: TiPb Screaming for Palm Pre to Bring it On!

Friday Fun Video: TiPb Screaming for Palm Pre to Bring it On!

You're the world champion, but some old-school commentators keep talking like maybe you're yesterday's news. They say you haven't faced any real challengers lately, that you're getting soft. They say that some new device is looking hungry.

But here's the thing: you know you've still got it. You know it and you want to prove it. You want to fight. You want to fight now!

But the challenger just ain't showing up. And worse, they ain't even saying when they will finally show up. Makes you so riled you just want to SCREAM!

iPod touch and iPod nano to Get Cameras?

iPod touch and iPod nano to Get Cameras?

We'd heard rumors about the iPod touch getting a camera already -- makes sense and would tie it even more closely to the iPhone OS. HardMac (via MacRumors) is now saying the iPod nano will as well.

Sounds plausible as it provides an easy way for Apple to both strengthen ties within their ecosystem and incrementally update both platforms in time for the holidays.

Mac OS X 10.5.7 Optimized for Intel Atom Netbook/iTablet Class Processor?!

Mac OS X 10.5.7 Optimized for Intel Atom Netbook/iTablet Class Processor?!

Yeah, this story is thin. iPod nano thin. But Wired (via MacRumors) is claiming that Apple recent Mac OS X 10.5.7 Leopard update gives netbooks running the software (aka Hackintoshs) a significant boost to battery life (up to 33%).

This has led to some speculation that Apple maybe -- just maybe -- built in better power management and other optimizations for lower end processors like the Intel Atom.

Apple, AT&T Sued over... Shazam App Existing?

Apple, AT&T Sued over... Shazam App Existing?

We typically don't follow every little Apple or AT&T lawsuit that closely because, frankly, there are too many of them and the frivolity of some just harshens our collective mellow. Case in point, according to Apple Insider:

Apple, AT&T and several others have been named in a new patent infringement lawsuit, presumably for their connection to Shazam, a maker of music identification software distributed under the same name for the iPhone and several other mobile devices.
