iPhone 3G S (Finally!) Supports Full Apple Headset Remote Features

iPhone 3G S comes with typical shiny white Apple headset buds, but for the first time these earbuds sport the new "remote", which includes volume controls and more.

Apple previously introduced iin-ear headsets with remote and mic for the second generation iPod touch (and aluminum MacBooks) in September 2008, but clearly labeled them as not-compatible with the iPhone 2G or iPhone 3G because the "remote" part was useless.

What a different a generation makes.

UPDATED: Wall Street Journal - Steve Jobs had Liver Transplant, Returning to Apple Soon

UPDATED: Wall Street Journal - Steve Jobs had Liver Transplant, Returning to Apple Soon

UPDATE: Daring Fireball takes apart the Wall Street Journal story about Steve Jobs recovering from a liver transplant, his time table on returning to Apple, and what -- if any -- changes we may see in his role there. Gruber sifts the sources and rank the theories. If this interests you, check it out.

ORIGINAL: We're really not sure how, or even if and when, to cover Steve Jobs anymore. We'd just rather report he's back at work, personally carving the 4th gen iPhone out of adamantium, and not telling Kevin Rose anything about Video iChat.

Quick App: Textfree 3.0 with Push Notification for iPhone

Pinger fulfills the longstanding demand for SMS-style alerts with iPhone 3.0-style support for Push Notifications in the aptly named Textfree 3.0 ($5.99 - iTunes link).

What does that buy you? One year of free text messages for the iPhone (and iPod touch!). With support for every U.S. mobile carrier, including AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, Alltel, and others, if the idea of paying Big Telco big money for incredibly small amounts of text doesn't appeal to you, check out Textfree 3.0 and let us know what you think!

Screenshots after the break!

iPhone 3.0 on iPhone 3G S: Battery Percentage Meter Found!

The case of the missing battery percentage meter has been solved! Developers found it in the iPhone 3.0 beta, but when iPhone 3.0 release hit, it was nowhere to be found... until now!

Looks like it's appearing exclusively on the new iPhone 3G S. Why, we have no idea -- and can't fathom a reason for, but check out Jeremy's screenshot above. There it be!

TiPb iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G Browser Speed Smackdown

TiPb iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G Browser Speed Smackdown

Two iPhones enter, only one can be left standing. Which one will it be? Well, both devices got the Nitro JavaScript rendering engine boost courtesy of iPhone 3.0, but the iPhone 3G S brought a little gun to this knife-fight in the form of double the RAM, a faster GPU, and a super souped up processor with higher clock speed and phat'er pipes. (Think 486 vs. Pentium on the desktop).

iPhone 3.0 Pwnage Jailbreak Now Available for Mac OS X

Now before you get too excited let me just off by saying this jailbreak is not for Apple's latest hardware, iPhone 3G S. This is only for the iPhone 3G or iPhone 2G running the 3.0 software.

Now with that said, the Dev-Team has released the proper tool for Mac OS X users to jailbreak your iPhone 3G's running 3.0, PwnageTool 3.0. Be warned, if do not know what you are doing, don't attempt it!
