UPDATED: FIXED! Google Search Broken? Flagging "May Harm Your Computer" For All Links!

UPDATED: FIXED! Google Search Broken? Flagging "May Harm Your Computer" For All Links!

UPDATE 2: The error turns out to be the human kind (via GeekBrief.tv):

We periodically receive updates to that list and received one such update to release on the site this morning. Unfortunately (and here’s the human error), the URL of ‘/’ was mistakenly checked in as a value to the file and ‘/’ expands to all URLs. Fortunately, our on-call site reliability team found the problem quickly and reverted the file. Since we push these updates in a staggered and rolling fashion, the errors began appearing between 6:27 a.m. and 6:40 a.m. and began disappearing between 7:10 and 7:25 a.m., so the duration of the problem for any particular user was approximately 40 minutes.

Review: Griffin RoadTrip with Smartscan

Review: Griffin RoadTrip with Smartscan

With my original iPhone 2G, I used a Monster solution to output the audio to my no-dock, no-RCA equipped car. Along came the iPhone 3G and while the Monster still worked, it no longer provided power. See, Apple in their Infinitely Looped wisdom decided to remove the FireWire pin from the iPhone 3G dock connector, and that was precisely the pin many peripherals used to transmit charge.

That was a problem for me, since my daily commute to work is an hour to an hour-and-a-half, and I typically listen to podcasts and audio books there and back again. Without power, my iPhone's charge was taking a hit!

Enter the Griffin RoadTrip with Smartscan. It transmits iPhone (or iPod touch) audio to your car's FM radio, and most importantly for our perpetually draining devices -- it charges as well.

I've spent a month with it now, putting it through it's paces on the Hoth-like roads of a Montreal winter. How did it hold up? Read on to find out!

iPod touch 2nd Gen Jailbreak (redSn0w) Now Available -- Experts Only Need Apply

iPod touch 2nd Gen Jailbreak (redSn0w) Now Available -- Experts Only Need Apply

The iPhone dev team have posted a tethered "redSn0w" Jailbreak for the 2nd generation iPod touch. They are providing it with expert-only instructions, and a strict warning that they won't be providing ANY support for it (if you ask for help, it means you shouldn't be using it, and they'll literally ban you from their site).

However, they also say they're working on an un-tethered Jailbreak, which will hopefully be both much easier to use, and enjoy some level of support.

If you're a supra-command-line ninja, however, and absolutely can't wait, go get it now...

Apple's iPhone Advantage -- Profit, not Volume (Plus, Friday Dell Fun!)

Yeah, yeah, Michael Dell once said Apple should be shut down and the money returned to shareholders. We all know the can of whupApps Steve Jobs has unleashed on the industry since then. These days, Apple's profits look as good as their products and Dell's... likewise.

So it's with no small amount of trepidation we notice WMExperts noticing the world noticing Dell might just be making an entry into the smartphone market...

iPhone OS 2.2.1 Jailbreak -- Incredibly Complicated Instructions Edition

The illustri-notorious Dev Team has blogged about Jailbreaking iPhone OS 2.2.1, released by Apple earlier this week.

Simple version: You can now Jailbreak, if you haven't already upgraded to 2.2.1 via iTunes, are using a Mac, aren't affected by the OS X 10.6 DFU-mode bug, and -- if you want to keep using yellowSn0w for unlock -- are happy to spin your own custom firmware.

Complex version: involves closing the barn door -- see here.

How About the iPhone as Controller for Apple TV Gaming Console?

Hot on the heels of the premium "App Store Plus" (TM Erica Sadun) $19.99 rumor we helped propogate yesterday, in his (its?) weekly column, the Macalope pulls a follow-up rumor out of his rear port (actually makes it up on the spot) for a concept that's actually pretty darn intriguing:

Polaroid Wants More iPhone Bluetooth Access -- So Say We All?

Polaroid Wants More iPhone Bluetooth Access -- So Say We All?

TiPb received a note from Andy at Polaroid concerning a campaign they're starting encouraging iPhone users to file a feature request with Apple for Bluetooth file transfer access. Polaroid wants this for their Pogo Instant Mobile Printer, but TiPb thinks it's a grand idea for better Bluetooth access of all sorts.

I'm pretty sure we don't have stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) because, well, it's not very good quality and Apple doesn't do "not very good quality" (outside of MobileMe launches, mice, and corporate printer support, of course), but how about letting that gorgeous Apple Bluetooth Keyboard (or any Bluetooth Keyboard) hook up with the iPhone?
