VoiceCentral "Black Swan" Brings Google Voice to iPhone Browser

VoiceCentral "Black Swan" Brings Google Voice to iPhone Browser

Neither Google Voice nor any Google Voice-related apps snuck back into the App Store, at least not yet, but VoiceCentral aims to fill that void with its Black Swan Edition WebApp alternative. TechCrunch has the details:

The app is completely browser-based but has the look and feel of a regular app, complete with a dialer, list of transcribed voicemails, and SMS messages.

Using the WebApp calls both the number you want to reach and your Google Voice number, so you're still using voice minutes, and it can't access your iPhone contacts so you have to upload (and update) those separately. Still, the voicemail and SMS will no doubt appeal to some. It even does HTML5-style local caching.

Once again, as TechCrunch and Apple themselves point out, WebApps provide a way to develop for the iPhone outside the App Store and associated approval method (and problems).

If you have a Google Voice account and want to give VoiceCentral a try, you can apply for the beta. If you get in, let us know how it works for you!

Full on Qik Live for iPhone Streaming Video Broadcast Now in App Store

'Tis the season for last minute, high-profile, pre-holiday App Store approvals it seems, as the long-awaited Qik, now dubbed Qik Live [Free - iTunes link] has finally hit the iPhone!

I've been lucky enough to have an ad-hoc version for a while now, and it's always worked very, very well, so here's to Apple and AT&T loosening the 3G chains and letting iPhone users do what Nokia N95 users have been doing for years now -- broadcast live from their iPhones!

If you try it out, say to live stream the grandkids opening their new iPod touch presents, let us know how it works for you!

Multi-touch Tactile Keyboard for iTablet -- Apple Patent Watch

AppleInsider has come across an interesting patent from Apple, titled "Keystroke Tactility Arrangement on a Smooth Touch Surface that details a multi-touch tactile keyboard for an iTablet-like device:

"The articulating frame may provide key edge ridges that define the boundaries of the key regions or may provide tactile feedback mechanisms within the key regions. The articulating frame may also be configured to cause concave depressions similar to mechanical key caps in the surface."

UPDATED: Are AT&T's iPhone Problems Due to Network Configuration Errors?

UPDATE: TiPb asked for AT&T's side of this story, and here it is:

"The AT&T wireless network is designed and engineered to deliver the highest possible levels of capacity and performance. Our standing as the nation's fastest 3G network is validated by multiple third-party testing organizations on the basis of millions of drive tests annually.  

"We believe that recent online speculation regarding AT&T wireless network configuration settings is without foundation. Allegations in these posts regarding packet loss network settings are incorrect."

NYT: Steve Jobs "Extremely Happy" with iTablet, Surprising Interaction Method?

NYT: Steve Jobs "Extremely Happy" with iTablet, Surprising Interaction Method?

And the iTablet Saga continues today, with the New York Times blogging that, according to an Apple employee:

"I can’t really say anything, but, let’s just say Steve [Jobs] is extremely happy with the new tablet.”

It's long been known that Apple has had a tablet in the labs for years, and that the iPhone was a result of leveraging technologies experimented with for a "Safari Pad", but Steve Jobs and Apple didn't see a mainstream market for the device and so never released it in its own right. Arguably, they've been just fine with the iPhone and iPod touch filling that niche.

TiPb Speculates: What if Apple Unveils iPhone 4.0 HD in January?

Given the rumors culminating today in the Tuesday, January 26th Special Media Event mother of all rumors, the speculation about the when is only compounded by the what, and on that raging inferno of fantasy, TiPb is once again wondering if maybe not only (or not even) an iTablet fits the bill -- but an iPhone 4.0 unveiled early in advance of an iPhone HD.

Rumorous Maximus: Apple Holding Special Event January 26

The Financial Times is dropping the Apple Special Media Event bomb, claiming it will happen on Tuesday, January 26, 2010 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco:

Apple is expected to use the venue to make a major product announcement on Tuesday, January 26th. Both YBCA and Apple declined to comment.

Apple's last event introduced the iPod touch G3 back in September. Absent Macworld this year, their next cyclical event would be an iPhone OS Sneak Preview in March.

Rumors! Mythical iTablet Event in January, iPhone Devs Asked to make "Full Screen" Apps

Rumors! Mythical iTablet Event in January, iPhone Devs Asked to make "Full Screen" Apps

From analysts to so-called insiders, the rumors are growing that Apple just might have an event in January to just maybe announce the just possibly new iTablet with just a few select iPhone apps running full screen, resolution independent by showtime.

Meh. Apple has held January events for a long time -- they introduced the iPhone at Macworld 2007 after all, and while Apple has pulled out of that event this year, there's nothing to stop them trying to once-again upstage CES and put on their own invitation-only shindig sometime during the first month of 2010.

Review: Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth Headset for iPhone 3G/3GS

The past few weeks I've been lucky enough to test out the latest and greatest Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth headset for the iPhone [iMore Store Link - $119.95]. I've tested a lot of Bluetooth headsets since I've been here at TiPb and while some have been all around impressive, others have left me scratching my head. Is the Discovery 975 a definite keeper, or just a dud?

See for yourself after the break!
