MobileMe Gallery app updated for iOS 4, iPad, Retina Display

Apple has finally updated MobileMe Gallery to version 1.2 with support iOS 4 fast app switching, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 Retina Display, and made it a universal app for the iPad to boot!

And, like Remote app, all it took was Chad complaining for weeks and months on the podcast to do it! (Be afraid, Keynote Remote...!)

Also supported is the iOS-only ability to see friends' galleries even if you yourself don't have a MobileMe account. Nice.

Screen shots after the break. If you've tried out the new, improved, MobileMe Gallery app for iPhone or iPad, let us know if you liked it.

Apple TV (2010) give away!

Apple TV (2010) give away!

Yup, we're giving away an Apple TV (2010) in all its iOS-powered, potential Jailbreak-able glory. (Technically we're giving away a $100 Apple Store gift-certificate, but you get the idea). You want it? Of course you do, you're here on TiPb reading about it, aren't you?!

Well, just head on over to our brand new Apple TV Forum and leave a reply telling us why you want it. Is it all-about AirPlay? Netflix calling your name? Is it for the children? Need them $0.99 rentals? Or do you just have to have everything iOS? Any reason will do, and you only need to enter once (so don't be spammy about it, okay?).

Apple and Facebook continue to pong over Ping

Apple and Facebook continue to pong over Ping

Facebook CTO Bret Taylor is "very confident" Facebook and Apple will be able to come to terms on integrating Apple's social music network with Facebook's social people network.

Ping launched with Facebook Connect so you could more easily find your friends, but the service was blocked by Facebook and then pulled by Apple, with rumors following the two had been going back and forth over a deal for up to 18 months and Steve Jobs complaining Facebook wanted "onerous" terms.

While Apple improved Ping with iTunes 10.0.1's inclusion of a sidebar and the ability to Ping music you already owned from within iTunes, the service is still off to a rocky start. It remains inaccessible from a web browser when you're away from your desktop iTunes and don't have an iPhone with you (blasphemy, but it could happen), and otherwise still feels like a work in progress.

Apple TV (2010) Jailbreak via SHAtter shown off

Apple TV (2010) Jailbreak via SHAtter shown off

Looks like Apple TV (2010) can indeed be Jailbroken via the SHAtter exploit just like any other iOS 4.x device to date. Keep in mind the image above is just a tease and the Jailbreak hasn't been packaged for the masses yet, nor have we heard of any Apple TV-centric Jailbreak apps or extensions yet, but we can dream, right?

iPod, iPhone, and iPad: why Apple is so much more successful than Google and Microsoft

iPod, iPhone, and iPad: why Apple is so much more successful than Google and Microsoft

Yeah, crediting the iPod, iPhone, and iPad for why Apple is so much more successful than Google or Microsoft is a loaded headline, or would be if Mark Sigal from O'Reilly didn't point it out in so succinct a fashion:

More Apple TV fun: 1080p in, Xcode, PhoneView

More Apple TV fun: 1080p in, Xcode, PhoneView

As Apple TV (2010) makes its way out into the world people are figuring out more of what you can and can't do with it, including Engadget who says there's 1080p in (but not out) via iTunes:

We just ran some tests on the AppleTV's playback limits by streaming 1080p movie trailers in iTunes and managed to verify murmurs saying the device can accept 1080p content. Unfortunately, output is a different story, since it downscales the image back to 720p on your display

TUAW meanwhile plugged it into PhoneView to access the AFC service area, tried Ping (the network IP command, not iTunes social music!), VLC, used TinyUmbrella to save SHSH blobs, and more:

You can register your Apple TV device in Xcode (it shows up immediately) to the iOS developer portal but you cannot perform any actual development -- yet. Xcode complains that Apple TV does not "support development". Bummer that.

Rogers: 80% of iPhone 4 activations were to existing customers

Rogers, the first Canadian carrier to offer the iPhone, put out a statement today saying 4 out of 5 iPhone 4 activations on their network went to existing customers. They're also extending some of their promotions for those who haven't yet snagged an iPhone 4 but might want to take advantage of them, especially the 6GB/$30 data plan. Act fast.

When Rogers/Fido launched the iPhone 4 on July 30, we announced special offers for our new and existing customers. Since then, we have activated a significant number of devices with 80 per cent having gone to our existing customers.

These special offers were scheduled to expire on Sept. 30, but we have some good news to share.
