Who Really Benefits from iPhone on Verizon Rumors?

Daring Fireball posted a tremendous article about how Verizon, AT&T, and Apple benefit if the rumors about an iPhone Lite and iPad media tablet on Verizon are true-ish (Gruber also looks at Apple's iPod strategy mapped to the iPhone -- go read it now, I'll wait).

What struck me, however, was how Verizon, AT&T, and Apple benefit from the rumors themselves rather than the actual devices and/or their eventual carriers, if any.

Swine Flu Tracker Coming to iPhone App Store

11

Swine Flu Tracker Coming to iPhone App Store

It was only a matter of time before some developer, in this case IntuApps, created an application revolving around the Swine Flu and why not, it's actually pretty informative and it will be free. According to Techcrunch you can expect the following features:

"you can see the current Threat Level for the disease, a map showing confirmed and suspected cases, a symptoms area to inform people, and an alert page for breaking news on Swine Flu."

This one can be very useful for a lot of people but now the big question is when will this application be approved?

Another screenshot after the break...

Twitter Team Would Rather Pay for iPhones Than Take Other Smartphones for Free

Apple.com/business has published a case study of micro-blogging darling, Twitter. Not surprisingly, Apple.com gives Twitter a lot of love for loving Apple products, especially the iPhone:

When it comes to availability, iPhones accommodate peoples’ needs to work remotely and stay connected with the Twitter team. Stone notes that Twitter remains loyal to iPhones even though other handset manufacturers offer them free equipment.

iPhone 3.0: iTunes Account Management in App Store

iPhone 3.0: iTunes Account Management in App Store

We've mentioned previously how iPhone 3.0 Beta 4 enabled an App Store tab in Preferences for managing and switching between iTunes Accounts. Looks like this feature is also available directly from the App Store application itself.

Scroll down to the bottom of a main page (i.e. before you've selected a specific app to look at) and you'll find a button containing your account user ID.

Tap on the button and you'll be given options to View Account, Sign Out, or Cancel.

Much more convenient than having to exit, launch Settings, navigate, switch accounts, go back...

Thanks Apple! More screenshots after the break...

(And thanks Roberto for the tip!)

iPhone 3.0: Find My iPhone to be MobileMe WebApp?

iPhone 3.0: Find My iPhone to be MobileMe WebApp?

A minor tweak in iPhone 3.0 Beta 4 changes the language for the -- still-unannounced by Apple -- "Find My iPhone" feature from simply saying it uses your MobileMe account at me.com, to saying it uses a MobileMe Web application.

The assumption has always been that this feature would let you track a lost iPhone (or perhaps the child for whom you bought it), web application sounds -- at least to us -- a tad more substantial in terms of implementation.

Microsoft Head of Xbox BI and Strategy Leaving for... Apple?

Microsoft Head of Xbox BI and Strategy Leaving for... Apple?

MVC (via MacRumors) is claiming that Microsoft's head of Xbox Business Insights and Strategy, Richard Teversham, is leaving to join Apple.

With the unbelievable success of iPhone and iPod touch gaming, could Apple finally be taking the space seriously? Or could this be part of some bigger move, one involving those chipset buyouts, licenses, and hires we recapped earlier? Could Apple be working on...

... A Pippin Take 2?

Thursday Fun Video Part Deux: iPod Theater Edition

So. Funny. Maybe the Audio Book industry was right to be worried, but for the wrong reason. With the iPhone rumored to be getting voice control in 3.0, how long will it be before we get to see our signature device turn up as Sam Jackson in Pulp Fiction... or doing it's own into at Macworld 2007! The comedy potential is limitless, we tell you, limitless.

Quick App: GriP -- Growl Notification for iPhone Jailbreak

Quick App: GriP -- Growl Notification for iPhone Jailbreak

We've expressed concern before that, with the arrival of Push Notification, the iPhone's built in alert system, especially the modal text boxes, may not be a user-friendly solution. There have been a couple creative solutions to this problem already on the Jailbreak side, but GriP takes a rather novel approach: it aims to be Growl (the well known Mac OS X global notification system - Wikipedia link) for iPhone -- hence the name.
