iPhone 2.2 Now Available! Go Get It! (Unless You've Jailbroken!)

WE CAN HAS IT! iPhone 2.2, 246.4MB of Google Map goodness, podcast OTA downloadiness, Line-out-ified, Emoji-con'd, latest update to Apple's universe denting, storm-breaking mobile computing platform is now available via iTunes!

Just remember, if you've jailbroken, or if you ever want to unlock the 3G, DON'T DO IT.

For the rest of us, let us know how big it is, how fast it's downloading, how long it's taking to install, and what -- if any -- secret features you're finding when you're done!

(Thanks to everyone who wrote in to let us know it was live!)

[Dieter: After the break, Apple's official list of updates!]

Apple Releases iTunes 8.0.2

Harbinger of things to come? Or just coincidence? You decide. But while you're deciding, head on over to Apple Software Update and grab yourself a copy of iTunes 8.0.2 and its quality, connectivity, and accessibility fixes.

(Though if you've jailbroken, or intend to Unlock when it becomes available, AVOID as we've already seen that the new MacBook lineups have jailbreak unfriendly iTunes builds, and this could be more of the same).

Nokia N96 Gets Bruce Lee Edition... iPhone Could Still Take It!

Nokia N96 Gets Bruce Lee Edition... iPhone Could Still Take It!

Gotta admit, this Nokia N96 Bruce Lee Edition is pretty cool. Bruce Lee put Kung Fu on the map, and while I'm not sure the current generation of tiny Skidoosh'ers would know him over the Panda, it hits all my nostalgia strings. (I'm sure Jeremy is waiting impatiently for the other Bruce -- Campbell, that is -- to show up, while Brian may, just may, be holding out for the King himself! Of course, Sam Jackson will probably be ****ing next...)

Of course, even with Saint Bruce's way of the intercepting phone, the N96 would still eat a whole heaping, hurting, helping of Jobs Sifu's Dim Mak -- that's the death touch fellas -- were it to even try and enter that iPhone dragon's lair.

But yeah, I'm jealous.

And iPhone do hit back...

UPDATED! Google Using Private API's For Advanced Voice Search?

UPDATED! Google Using Private API's For Advanced Voice Search?

UPDATE: iPhone dev extraordinaire Erica Sadun investigated over at Ars and found the following: Google is both linking to Private Frameworks and using unpublished APIs. While the latter is likened to jaywalking, the former is apparently a ban-worthy offense. Yikes. Check out her complete investigation for more. And now that it's public, the question shifts to what if anything Apple will do about it? Cave to Google over a killer feature and betray the confidence of other developers, or yank Google's app, alienating a huge (if guilty) partner and likely creating another furor among users?

Apple Trying to Offer More DRM-Free Music on iTunes?

Apple Trying to Offer More DRM-Free Music on iTunes?

According to CNet (via Apple Insider), Apple is in talks with the remaining 3 out of the Big 4 record labels who still refuse to allow iTunes to sell DRM-free music.

Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, and Sony BMG currently provide DRM-free music to rival services like Amazon MP3 as a way to promote competition to iTunes, though the lack of availability of these services outside the US, along with iTunes continued (and growing) dominance in digital music, may be causing them to rethink that position.

Crosswords vs 2 Across: iPhone App vs. App

Crosswords vs 2 Across: iPhone App vs. App

I love me some crossword puzzles. You can keep your silly Sudoku, I played enough logic games getting my philosophy major from a department that didn't go for them crazy postmodern language games (seriously, the folks at St. Thomas love them some logic). I love having crosswords on my smartphone because it's the perfect 'quick game' app: you can spend two minutes or twenty on them, there's many new and free ones available every day, and they fend off cognitive decline in old age (Seriously, speaking of Catholics, look into the "nun study").

Anyway, point is I want my crossword puzzle app to be awesome. So this week's App vs. App is crosswords. Today's contestants: 2 Across (1.2.2) by Eliza Block and Crosswords (1.13) by Stand Alone, Inc. Which one will better serve your word-puzzle fetish? Read on!
