  1. Search for "aol"
  2. Click on the AOL iPhone App.
  3. Use the breadcrumbs at the top go get to the app store .

OMGAPPZ!

iTunes 7.7 Live! 500 Apps! 90% Under $10! 25% Free! + Jobs Speaks!

iTunes 7.7 Live! 500 Apps! 90% Under $10! 25% Free! + Jobs Speaks!

Steve Jobs only speaks to the media when he has to, when he launches an iPod, the iPhone, the MacBook Air... the App Store. Here's what he just said to USA Today:

"This is the biggest launch of my career."

From the man who brought us the Apple II and the Mac? Really? That's a lot of faith in what some are calling the next major platform. And it looks like Jobs isn't taking any chances. Heck, it looks like he's positively stacking the deck:

500 Apps in the Store at launch. 450 of them under $10. 125 of them FREE.

Mobile Me Officially Live

Good morning iPhone lovers! Remember when you were a child and you discovered your parents' secret hiding place for your Chrismas presents? You spend a few agonizing minutes (ok, seconds) debating whether or not to peek at what you'd get and then, yes, you peeked. Today's going to be like that. If you haven't yet, it's time to fire up iTunes and check for an update because, yes, 7.7 is here with the App store and ready for download. More on that in a bit.

Non-Disclosure Expiring? [Redacted] Retracted? App Store to Launch Today?!

Since the iPhone SDK launch in March, developers accepted into the program have been bound via NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) to Apple-institutionalized uber-secrecy (leading one noted developer to cleverly refer to the SDK as [REDACTED] on Twitter). Tech Crunch says, like .Mac, that may end later today:

Fake Steve Gets Steved: Dan Lyons Retires the Parody Postings

Fake Steve Gets Steved: Dan Lyons Retires the Parody Postings

It's the end of the blogsphere as we know it, and dagnabit I don't feel fine. Why? Fake Steve is retiring. Former Forbes columnist Dan Lyons, who once panned bloggers and later rose to internet stardom after being exposed as one of the most infamous -- and best in some opinions -- bloggers of them all, is heading to Newsweek and will be switching his posting over to his own name. No doubt his content will continue to be razor sharp and wickedly insightful -- if not inciting -- but Fake Steve has become such an icon of the Web 2.0 age that I can't help but think the loss of Dear Leader, El Jobso, the wake-and-baker himself will leave the net just a little emptier.

iPhone 3G to KO Blackberry in Ultimate Smartphone Championships?

ChangeWave is back with trends in intended smartphone buying for June 2008. The good? The iPhone has soared from 29% to 56% from a low this time last year of 18%. The bad? Rim has tumbled from 29% to 23% from a high of 33% last July. The ugly? Palm has held steady at 3%, having free fallen from 24% way back in late 2006.

The iPhone dominated almost all rounds, causing an overall increase in planned smartphone purchases to 10%. Satisfaction levels were through the roof at 78% (way above RIM's 54% and trouncing Palm's 29%)

Blackberry held on to the title of reigning email monster, with a holding-steady 42% ownership of that space, but Apple is making inroads even there, up to 11%.

With the second coming of the iPhone at our doorsteps (3G for those of you living in a cave), there has been an intriguing amount of comparison between the "old" iPhone 2G and the shiny new 3G Wonder.  The coming of 2.0 and the App Store has everyone a-twitter, but lest we forget, there are still a plethora of web-based apps out there that are just darn good and useful.  This week's Tip, courtesy of Fiona King and currencytrading.net (a BIG thanks, Fiona!), is all about helpful financial apps for the iPhone.  Read on, friends!

Attack of the iClones Blog vs. Blog Edition: Crackberry/Boy Genius Haptic Thunder NERDFIGHT!

Sure, the iPhone 3G launch is tomorrow. Consider this an amuse bouche. Or the opposite of that, an annoy bouche. Whatever. Something salty to make Friday taste all the more sweet!

The subject of today's battle royal? Nope, not iPhone vs. Blackberry. That's old. This time it's Blackberry vs. Blackberry, Blog vs. Blog, over the iClone to end all iClones: the touchscreen Blackberry Thunder!

Says our sister site Crackberry.com, 10th degree Blackberry belts and reigning world champions:

Touchscreen BlackBerry Thunder Keyboard To Utilize Haptic Technology... AMAZING Implementation! [...] Leave it to RIM to CRACK the touchscreen keyboard nut.

Says Boy Genius Report, craftiest of all mobile blogsphere Ninja:

The keyboard is incredibly annoying to type on, and the screen actually shows ripples even when pressed ever-so-lightly. [...] Most of the people who have handled it thinks it’s a joke.

Read on for round 2!

iPhone 3G: 2 Days and Counting Down to App Store!

iPhone 3G: 2 Days and Counting Down to App Store!

This is it. We're in the home stretch. Golden goal, all or nothing, and Steve Jobs kicking it high and to the side. In 2 days we find out if Apple gets the world cup, the two-peat for smartphone (even gadget) championship, or if they send it flying over the post with their mostly evolutionary, not so much revolutionary, next generation handset.

Saturday we mentioned one big change: the fast 3G data chip. Sunday it was GPS. Monday we tackled the 2.0 Firmware update. Tuesday we detailed the rebirth of .Mac: MobileMe. Today we're looking at the mother load, App Store.

Why should you want Apps? Of course you want Apps, read on to find out just how much!
