TiPb Birthday Bash: G-Map East & West Great American Give Away!

TiPb Birthday Bash: G-Map East & West Great American Give Away!

Entering this contest counts as an entry in TiPb's Birthday Bash grand-prize draw for an Unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G!

G-Map for iPhone, in both US East and West flavors ($24.99 each - iTunes link), is the current king of the iPhone roads. Chad's already gone on record with his love for this app:

I have been using G-Map US East for the iPhone now for a couple of months. Why wait for FULL GPS Navigation with Turn-by-Turn with Software 3.0 when you can have it now. All that is lacking is the audible cue to turn, but it has excellent visual cues. Easy to use and fast calculations make this one a winner! The developer says they will add Audible Turn-by-Turn with Software 3.0. Did I mention that Internet access is not required? That’s right, all of the maps are on your hard drive with no subscription!

With slick features like real 3D junction view, there's nothing else like it for short hauls or cross-country road trips alike. Which brings us neatly to our first, and maybe one of our most challenging TiPb Birthday Bash contests!

Inspired by babydol's idea, head on over to the TiPb Birthday Bash: G-Map East & West Great American Give Away! thread in the forums and post a photo of your iPhone that best shows where it's been, where you want it go, or just how you feel about traveling the United States. Be majestic, be funny, be creative. (And yes, Photoshop is fine too.)

Give us that EPIC moment of iPhone Americana, and we'll pick five (5) of you to give promo codes for BOTH G-Map East & West (that's $50 worth of apps!), courtesy of XROAD.

Contest details after the break!

iPhone 3.0 Beta 5 Now Available to Develpers

iPhone 3.0 Beta 5 Now Available to Develpers

Apple has just released iPhone 3.0 Beta 5 to developers, a scant week-and-a-day after Beta 4. Previously Beta 2 and Beta 3 had been arriving every second Tuesday like clockwork, so was is this a sign of acceleration pre-WWDC, important fixes that needed pushing out faster, or just an early surprise for developers anxious to keep up to date?

Shock! Disbelief! Week 4: Big Music Price Hike STILL Makes Tunes Less Popular!

We posted last month about how initial reports showed the then new $1.29 price point Big Music had convinced iTunes, Amazon, and other digital music retailers to adopt had caused pricier tunes to fall down the charts, how do things look now, some 4 weeks later?

Review: Case-Mate Vroom for iPhone 3G

Review: Case-Mate Vroom for iPhone 3G

[Ed: New Case-Mate Vrooms in new spectacular colors now available in the TiPb iPhone Store! - Rene]

The iPhone 3G certainly has a ton of case options. Everyone has their own take on what constitutes a good iPhone case—some prefer silicone, others want a hard plastic, some prefer loud cases, others search for more subtle options. We take a look at a lot of cases here at TiPb and there’s a different qualification for the case we’re about to take a look at—this falls under the ‘fun’ category.

The Case-Mate Vroom for iPhone 3G ($14.95) is a subtly-fun designed rubber case. From afar the Vroom case looks like a basic, black silicone case that protects the back of the iPhone 3G. Upon closer inspection, whoa what?! The back has tire tread!

Is this merely a gimmick? How cool is it?

Read on for the rest of the review!

Wednesday Fun Comic: Wolverine Better Get a BlackBerry!

Wednesday Fun Comic: Wolverine Better Get a BlackBerry!

SNIKT! How appropriate that CrackBerry Kevin SMASH! was homage'd straight from the pages of Hulk vs. Wolverine, as it seems from the Evil-Comic above that everyone's favorite Canadian mutant maniac might just be heading his way soon.

Remember: he's the best there is at what he does, even if what he does isn't very nice... to multi-touch smartphones, bub.

(True geeks are free to make their own Storm jokes here).

Apple Alters Policy on Water-Damaged iPhones

Apple Alters Policy on Water-Damaged iPhones

Cue the Jaws music... According to ifoAppleStore.com it seems Apple has recently changed their policy on water-damaged iPhones. Effective now, Apple will replace the iPhone you dropped in your toilet with a new or refurbished phone - guess that would depend on what kind of mood the Genius is in - for $199 without extending your contract for $199.

Microsoft iClones Apple App Store Restrictions?

Microsoft iClones Apple App Store Restrictions?

We love many things about the iPhone. Most things even. One of the few things we're not so chuffed about is the weird, wacky restrictions Apple places on App Store apps, and the sometimes haphazard way in which those restrictions are applied.

So, one edge we thought the other platforms might have would be the relative openness of their competing app stores. Turns out maybe not so much. How so? Our buddy Phil Nickinson over on WMExperts spent his weekend scouring through Microsoft's Windows Marketplace for Mobile restrictions, and at first blush they appear at least as crazy as Apple's:

iPhone 3.0: Swipe to Delete Contact Info

iPhone 3.0: Swipe to Delete Contact Info

Not sure if this is new to Beta 4, or if it appeared earlier in iPhone 3.0, but it's the first we've seen of it so we're passing it along. What is it exactly? Simply go to Contacts, pick a name, and then swipe to call up the red "Delete" button that we all know and love from Email and other, previous apps going all the way back to iPhone 1.x.

Nice way to speed up removing unwanted or outdated information. Thanks Apple!

(And thanks Adam for the tip!)

Updated: iPhone 3G Coming to Orange UK?

Updated: iPhone 3G Coming to Orange UK?

Updated: To address some of the comments, we edited out the URL field to protect the source, but it was not the public facing web address mentioned below. It was local intranet address. Of course, anything is fake-able, so we'll just have to wait and see if -- ever -- Apple and Orange UK make an announcement... or not.
