iPhonexe - The App Store Alternative!

Trouble finding a certain app in the app store? Well, there is a new website out there called iPhonexe  (mobile version can be found here) that gives everyone with a iPhone a alternative to using Apple's official app store. While I personally have not checked for every single app currently in the app store, iPhonexe claims to include them all, broken down into categories ready for nice and easy browsing. Keep in mind that this does not bypass Apple's app store completely. If you click "Buy Now" you are taken directly to the app in the app store to purchase it via iTunes.

Look, advertising is a mysterious thing, okay? It takes some crazy genius can figure out how to make you want things without you even realizing that's what's happening. Any Don Draper monologue can tell you that.

App Review: Jott- take an audio note!

I remember back in the day while driving, I would take an audio note on my Palm Tungsten, T, before smartphones really took off. My, have we come a long way.

Flash and Java on the iPhone: Video Dream vs. Security Nightmare Redux

Flash and Java on the iPhone: Video Dream vs. Security Nightmare Redux

Last week the UK ruled that Apple was misrepresenting the iPhone's provisioning of "just the internet" due to the lack of support for two ubiquitously popular 3rd party plugins: Flash and Java. We've previously covered the will they/won't they drama surrounding development and deployment of Flash and Java pretty much ad nauseum infinitum, as well as some seldom discussed yet surprisingly frightening concerns about Flash and its downright sneaky use of 3rd party advertising cookies.

More recently, however, another issue has come to light. Primarily concerned with Windows Vista security and how it can be circumvented, this issue throws a renewed focus on the danger of 3rd party plugins like Flash and Java, on how they interpret and run code on our machines, and how they provide an increasingly popular attack vector for bad guys (hackers, malware authors, identity thieves, etc.)

How does this all relate to the iPhone, and what about ZOMG! Can has my Flash vidz? Read on to find out!
