Quick App for Xbox 360 Owners: 360 Live

Fring Brings Video Calls to iPhone

Fring [Free - iTunes link] dropped us a note to let us know that with version 3.0.0.4 -- now in the App Store -- they've delivered on their promise of video calls for the iPhone.

Now, since the iPhone doesn't (yet?) have a front-facing camera, you're limited to seeing the other person on a Skype or Fring Video call using their PC webcam (or Nokia phone -- sigh, jealousy), but it's still a wondrous step towards the future.

AT&T and Verizon are Back Again with Two New Commercials

AT&T and Verizon are Back Again with Two New Commercials

Actor Luke Wilson and AT&T are at it once again and this time they want you to know all about AT&T's rollover minutes. Yes, it is true that AT&T lets you use your unused monthly minutes but keep in mind, they eventually do expire after a year if you do not use them. We do not mean to keep beating the same drum but come on AT&T, quit spending money, time, and effort on these mediocre commercials and spend time on making your network better for everyone.

As AT&T keeps pumping out the commercials Verizon/Motorola are not sitting quietly on the sidelines. They've gone and released another Droid commercial that takes aim at, you guessed it, Apple's iPhone. This latest commercial caters to the male consumers and pretty much paints the iPhone as being nothing more than "pretty". Smart move as the Motorola continues to beat Apple in brand loyalty with males 18 years old and up.

[Thanks to matrix2004 for the tip!]

Crazy Competition Rumor: Secret Google Phone Running Secret Android is Real

Gizmodo isn't waiting for the new year to shoot old rumors into the stratosphere, gossiping that the Google Phone (an honest-to-Jobs unique, branded phone by Google) is in a fact a fact, runs the here-to-fore unseen "real" Android (yes, everything from the G1 to the Droid has been running fakety fake fake Android), and is about to flood Google's HQ for testing:

Our best guess is an Android OS with Google Voice at its heart.

Mythical iTablet Competitor CrunchPad Dead Before Arrival

Mythical iTablet Competitor CrunchPad Dead Before Arrival

Before Google showed off Chrome OS, essentially the Chrome Browser running on top of an ultra-lite Linux Kernal, TechCrunch's Michael Arrington tried to will something very similar into existence -- a capacitive touchscreen CrunchPad tablet that would run Firefox and nothing else.

The rumored price tag rose and "delays" seemed to abound, and now it looks like the little CrunchPad that almost could will never be:

Yet More CDMA-Compatible (aka Verizon) iPhone Rumors

Yet More CDMA-Compatible (aka Verizon) iPhone Rumors

Once again Taiwan's DigiTimes is raising chatter about Qualcomm and Apple and CDMA compatible (or CDMA+GSM dual mode) iPhones, which of course brings Verizon screaming back into the rumor-mill.

This time, however, it seems that Qualcomm just really, really wants to work with Apple (who currently use a GSM-only chipset from rival Infineon), and a hybrid CDMA+GSM iPhone might not even be technically possible until 2011. (Though Qualcomm's new chipset reportedly does provide compatibility with the upcoming LTE 4G standard as well, which both AT&T and Verizon will be rolling out... eventually).

So, yeah, very little to see here until we see something real here...

Tweetie 2.1 Twitter Client for iPhone Brings Geotag, Lists, New-Style Re-Tweets

Tweetie 2.1 Twitter Client for iPhone Brings Geotag, Lists, New-Style Re-Tweets

Tweetie 2.1 [$2.99 - iTunes link] -- a FREE upgrade for Tweetie 2.0 users -- brings support for Twitter's new Geotag feature (so everyone will know where exactly you're tweeting from), Twitter lists (what lists you have, what lists you subscribe to, though not the likely less-wieldly lists you're on), and the controversial new-style re-tweets (where you see the original tweeter in your timeline, not the person you're following who re-tweeted it).

There are other additions as well: report spam (via API), tweet-stream "gap" detection (looks like a torn gap in your timeline), and a tone of other stuff (including disable pin-stripes for the pixel-haters).

So how does Tweetie 2.1 handle all this new stuff? With Atebit's trademark buttery-smooth UI. Geotag is a new icon under the tweet-count drop-down menu. Twitter lists can be accessed via the More (...) icon on the bottom navigation bar, and you can view, manage, and even add new lists right on-device. New-style re-tweets get a small pink corner icon on the top right, and tapping on it brings up the original tweet with text on the bottom telling you which person you follow re-tweeted it.

If you decide to give it a try, let us know how you like it. (Or help me try it out via @reneritchie)

Screenshots galore after the break!
