Google Translate Won't "Leave Me Alone"?

Google Translate Won't "Leave Me Alone"?

So Dieter wrote up a review of Google Translate's shiny new, iPhone optimized WebApp, and it intrigued me enough to check it out. Since I live in Montreal, French was the first language I decided to try out. Since I'm damaged and have issues that would make Lucy jack her price up to 50 cents, the very first thing I tried to translate was: "leave me alone."

And what did Google Translate's WebApp say "leave me alone" was in French? "leave me alone". Oui-mais-wha?

Box Office Now Playing (Again) in the App Store

Box Office Now Playing (Again) in the App Store

Box Office is back. Only it's been rebranded as Now Playing. Only you can't find Now Playing in the App Store. But you can find Box Office. In iTunes. But not on the iPhone. Sorta.

Confusing much? We're right there with you. We figure the name change is messing with the search systems, which will hopefully sort themselves out shortly. In any event...

Buy iPhone 3G Online via AT&T Premier

Ever miss the good old days of buying an iPhone? Well, you can get one step closer if you're an AT&T Premier member since you can now order the iPhone 3G online and wait for it to ship to you!

Updated: iPhone 3G Connection Issues: Can Apple Software Fix Infineon Hardware Problem?

Update: Daring Fireball points out that: "The 3G networking glitches may well be real, but it’s worth pointing out that Richard Windsor is the same jackass who issued a report a year ago about the supposedly faulty “film” on the iPhone touchscreen, when in fact there was no such film."

So add that to the "grain of salt" heap...

Rumor: HSBC Ditching BlackBerry for iPhone 3G?

"Hello, Apple? HSBC here. World's largest company, maybe you've heard of us? Good, yeah, we'd like to place an order for the iPhone... How many? How about 200,000 for starters, b'okay?"

Sure, maybe the call won't go exactly like that, but ZDNet Australia (via MacRumors) is claiming the call may just be coming. Says HSBC's Australia and New Zealand chief information officer, Brenton Hush:

Twitter Suspends Most International SMS Service

Twitter Suspends Most International SMS Service

Sorry, TiPb lovers in the UK. Actually, sorry TiPb lovers everywhere except the US, Canada, and India: you can't really follow us on Twitter anymore -- at least via SMS. See, Twitter can't pay those international SMS fees anymore:

In a statement, the company said that when you send one message to Twitter and they send it to ten followers, the users haven't been charged ten times - and Twitter picked up the costs.

Apple's Market Cap Exceeds Google's

Apple's Market Cap Exceeds Google's

Digital Daily brings BOOM!ing word that Apple's market cap has just exceeded Google's, at $159.37 vs. $157.56.

Good on Steve Jobs and Apple. And kudos to Valleywag for saying, way back in 2007 that this would happen because "Apple knows how to design not just gadgets, but the businesses that go around them."

We here at TiPb have been marveling at Apple's unique 360 degree spherical integration for a while now as well.

Are You Having iPhone 3G Connection Problems?

Are You Having iPhone 3G Connection Problems?

The day after I bought my iPhone 3G I went back to the local Rogers store to see how things were going, and a customer was there complaining that he couldn't get on the 3G network. The customer service rep tried fiddling with his iPhone, but the settings all looked right. Yet there I was, less than 5 feet away, with full, fast 3G speed downloading TiPb's homepage at that very moment. Later that night, I saw some chatter that others thought Rogers was down because they couldn't connect either.

Game Review: Enigmo

Game Review: Enigmo

Enigmo is a 3D puzzle-based game for the iPhone developed by Pangea Software that has been met with rave reviews, even earning a “Best iPhone Game” at WWDC 08. The basic premise is to put water droplets in the water container, oil droplets in the oil container, and lava droplets in the lava container using the specific materials given to you. The materials can range from sponges, springs, slides, or even laser guns and it uses basic physics to determine where each droplet will land.

Enigmo is already a popular game on the Mac, but does it translate to the iPhone? Is it worth your $9.99? How does it perform?

Read on for the rest of the review!

BREAKING: Fire at Apple Cupertino Campus

BREAKING: Fire at Apple Cupertino Campus

Apple's Headquarters in Cupertino caught fire overnight. A three-alarm fire burned in the building known as Valley Green 6. The Santa Clara Fire Department received reports of smoke at about 10 P.M. Pacific Time. No injuries have been reported and the building was cleared. At about midnight Pacific Time the fire dispatcher was still uncertain on when the fire would be contained.

We're not exactly sure what goes on in the Valley Green 6 building but the obvious joke would be that it houses MobileMe. On a more serious note, we at TiPb hope that the firefighters are able to contain the fire and get home safe. Hopefully, everything and everybody will be okay.

Are You Using Your iPhone Apps?

Are You Using Your iPhone Apps?

Confession 1: Soon as the App Store opened, I started downloading. Free apps mainly, but I bought more than I thought I would as well.

Confession 2: I don't use most of them regularly. I mean, I use the built-in apps all the time, daily if not near-constantly in the case of Phone, Mail, and Safari. But the App Store stuff? Eh.... A couple have become regulars but most are occasional at best and some I no longer even bother to store on the iPhone (i.e. they've been relegated to iTunes purgatory.)

60 million downloads, 30 million in sales, and Steve Jobs thinks it could be a billion dollar business. So somebody must be using them, right?
