How Much iPhone 3G Data Are You Using Now?

Last August, a month after the iPhone 3G's release, we asked you how much iPhone 3G data you were using. Now, some 10 months post-release, with cries that iPhone users consumer "too much" of their "unlimited data" and should be charged more, and perhaps on the eve of the next generation iPhone announcement, we're asking again:

How much iPhone 3G data are you using now?

Microsoft Says iTunes Costs $30K to Fill an iPod? Ars Says ZunePass Costs $45K!

Microsoft Says iTunes Costs $30K to Fill an iPod? Ars Says ZunePass Costs $45K!

Okay, if you buy an empty iPod Classic, have never owned a CD or bought a piece of music in your life, and are determine to immediately fill that 120GBs to the brim, then $30K iTunes will cost you.

However, if you've already got a sizable CD collection, or music collection of any kind -- even your own compositions -- or want to carry around class lectures or other forms of audio or -- hey -- video maybe, well, it can cost much, much less. Maybe even less than the $15 a month Microsoft would rather you cough up to them for a ZunePass subscription.

Should AT&T Abandon Unlimited Data for the iPhone?

Should AT&T Abandon Unlimited Data for the iPhone?

The Wall Street Journal has an article up today saying the iPhone uses more data than your average smartphone and suggesting:

In the short term, carriers should abandon unlimited data pricing plans. Both AT&T and Verizon Wireless already charge extra for heavy users with wirelessly connected laptops. They will have to contemplate similar strategies for smartphone users.

iPhone Optimized Kindle Store Now Live

iPhone Optimized Kindle Store Now Live

Back in March, Apple's App Store was blessed with the free Amazon Kindle iPhone application. One of the biggest gripes that we had with it was the inability to purchase new books right from the app itself. While we still did not get that ability, Amazon has done the next best thing: last night they flipped the switch on an iPhone optimized Kindle store.

University of Missouri School of Journalism: iPhone Required!

University of Missouri School of Journalism: iPhone Required!

TUAW's reporting that Brian Brooks, Dean of University of Missouri's Journalism School is requiring that students have an iPhone or iPod touch. Why? So they can keep digital recordings of their lectures handy and listen to them more than once. Seems -- shock and disbelief -- repetition enhances learning.

Required is a key word, since it allows students to include the iPhone cost for their financial aid. They won't insist students have one, however, or -- apparently -- give detention to anyone who shows up with a Zune instead...

Hey, maybe they should just record every lecture as a podcast and put it up on iTunes U? : )

State of the iPhone 3.0 Jailbreak

State of the iPhone 3.0 Jailbreak

The iPhone Dev-Team has posted a few words regarding Jailbreaking the 3.0 software:

Because there are so many beta releases, we couldn’t possible refine, test, and release both PwnageTool and QuickPwn for each of them. That’s why we’re waiting until the final release. You may have seen other “hijacked” versions of QuickPwn out there, but all of them are buggy, none of them work on OSX, and almost everyone who uses them reverts back to 2.2.1 (because none of the useful jailbroken apps (Qik, Cycorder, and others) work on 3.0 yet).

TiPb Birthday Bash: BeeJiveIM Green Screen Challenge!

Help! Rene was typing out an URGENT instant message using iPhone uber-IM client, BeeJiveIM ($15.99 - iTunes link):

Stay connected to all your instant messaging buddies anywhere you go! BeejiveIM keeps you in touch with your friends on AIM®/MobileMe®, MSN®/Windows Live®, Yahoo!®, GoogleTalk®, Facebook, MySpace, ICQ® and Jabber... all at the same time, all on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

But here's the thing -- Rene was too late. Something crazy happened, he lost his grip on his trusty iPhone 3G, and now he's scrambling to get it back. This is where the help comes in. Actually, the where is the help. This is our:

We've provided the image (a PNG file) but we need YOU to provide the background. (Specifically, take the image and add a background to it in Photoshop or the image editor of your choice!)

You get the idea -- and if we choose your entry, you get one of five (5) free copies of BeeJiveIM.

So head on over to our TiPb Birthday Bash: BeeJiveIM Green Screen Challenge! thread and show us just what in the world (or other worlds?) is happening to poor Rene!
