Well it seems like these scam artists will just not go away! Here at TiPb we like to keep you, our loyal readers, safe by alerting you of every scam out there. A while back we reported twoother phishing scams aimed at MobileMe customers, and told you Apple was even posting warnings about them.
Today is a good day, we have had a few Android related stories today here at TiPb but competition is good. It will only make Apple kick things into high gear and improve on what is arguably the top touchscreen phone on the market today. That brings us to the first thread I want everyone to check out. It's brought to us by none other than our very own writer extraordinaire, Rene. Android vs iPhone! What are your thoughts?
Yeah, A-Day -- it's like that. No sooner did Apple announce the iPod Touch as the "funnest" ever (yet apparently didn't tell OS X's built in dictionary not to take issue with that obscure, yet valid usage...), then Google and T-Mobile decided to have a little, er, "fun" with it themselves:
BlueAnt's V1 Voice Controlled Bluetooth Headset introduces the revolutionary BlueGenie Voice User Interface, letting you control most functions with the sound of your voice. Amazingly, the headset will actually talk back to you too!
Pushing one button activates the voice recognition technology and gives you control of all the functions of the V1, just by talking. If you need assistance, ask for it and the headset will verbally help you get the commands you want.
Comes with: Headset, eargels, foam tips, 'Gooseneck" usb cable, USB adapter, USB Car charger, AC Power adapter.
Not sure if you've checked lately, but the App Store is ever-growing! So far more than 100 apps have been featured on the App Avalanche, and that's only the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. Time to dive in for another app-stravaganza with iPhone App Avalanche 10!
A-Day just goes on and on. We're not obsessed, mind you, but for reasons outlined before, from Google's CEO being on the Apple board, to Google services being inextricably linked into the iPhone, to Location Based (Mobile) Services and the Cloud being the Next Big Thing, this launch matters to iPhone owners almost as much as Windows Mobile (whom they're gunning to replace) and Palm OS 2.0 (whom they may render obsolete before launch).
Curious to know more? We are! In fact, Dieter's Meta Live Blogging the even right now over at AndroidCentral.
A-Day continues! AndroidCentral will have continuing coverage of T-Mobile's new GooglePhone throughout the day, but we here at TiPb are keeping our eyes peeled for those nuggets that collide (or will collide) with the iPhone.
Today is "A Day", the day T-Mobile announces Google's Android mobile platform (see our brand new little sibling site, AndroidCentral, for all the details and coverage) to an anxiously anticipating world. Well... mostly anxiously anticipating.
Turns out some people aren't as interested. Is it because Google's latest forays into content, including YouTube and Wikipedia rival Knol, and platforms, including Android and Firefox rival Chrome (and gLinux OS on the horizon?), make them think "don't be evil" is just a sinister plan to catch the world -- and our privacy -- off guard and unaware? Nope. We tend to like and trust Google. What then?
Real working app? Proof of concept? Science fiction? All of the above? Don't care. Want it now. This amazing demo shows an App that uses the iPhone's camera to record and display visual tagging information in real time, right in front of you. Drool.

The iPhone Map App, which leverages Google's mapping services, became location aware with 1.1.3, and GPS enabled with the iPhone 3G and 2.0.
Basically, it superimposes a blue circle around the area it believes you're located. More confident the belief, smaller the circle. GPS lock, and a blue dot shows up. Only problem? Sometimes there's not dot and Google's lack of confidence results in a pretty huge circle. Well, last week Google's blog announced some improvements:
