Flash ARMed to the MAX? Could the iPhone be Next?

According to Macrumors, Adobe and ARM, which is the chipset Apple uses to power the iPhone, have announced they're making a special version optimized for mobile devices. (And, yes, to be snarky, I'll believe that when I get a version optimized for Intel on the Mac, b'okay?)

I'm still trying to figure out if this is the 'droid I've been looking for, however. Do I understand the awesome power of the open-platform of the Google? Or is it more concept now than device, twisted and confusing?

Check out the video, then head on over to Android Central to help me out. Every day you post, you get entered to WIN one of FIVE smartphone prize packs! And you can enter each site's contest, so don't forget to help turn Casey back to the iPhone side as well!

Update: Google Advanced Voice Search Delayed by Apple?

Update: Google Advanced Voice Search Delayed by Apple?

Now after watching the above video, it seems as if Google has made one heck of a voice recognition app. But where the heck has it gone?!

It's pretty clear Google loves the iPhone, that is something we all know. Now why would Apple go ahead and delay their latest App Store app, Advanced Voice Search? Or have the reports of a Friday release been greatly exaggerated? The app was "expected" to make it's appearance in the App Store this past Friday. TechCrunch is now telling us to look for it tomorrow!

Apple Building Their Own Search Engine?

The intertubes are a flood with rumors that Apple may be building their own search engine. Does this mean they're going into competition with Microsoft Live! Search? With Yahoo!? With Google?! (After all, Google went into competition with Apple in the smartphone market!)

Probably not, according to TechCrunch:

Microsoft "Office Web" to Run on iPhone?!

Sure, Microsoft's online Live/Mesh/Azure strategy is just a tad less complicated than n-dimensional string theory, but it looks like when the next version of Office (14) ships with it's GoogleDocs/Zoho competing Office Web, it will include support for not only Mac OS X... but for the iPhone's MobileSafari browser as well!

According to Macworld, neither release date nor price point are known, but it should be a companion to Office 14 which is slated for 2009(-ish?)

New "Cracking" Lawsuit: Leave the iPhone Alone!

For the love of Steve Jobs, leave Britney ehh... I mean the iPhone alone!

Back at the end of July, Casey reported on white iPhones having issues with the plastic housing cracking in certain areas. As most of you are probably aware of, there have been a few lawsuits filed against Apple regarding the iPhone 3G.

Citrix Brings Windows to the iPhone!

Citrix Brings Windows to the iPhone!

Citrix, the folks behind Go To Meeting and Go To My PC -- and if you believe the urban myth, a good portion of the Windows kernel -- have just significantly harshened Steve Jobs' mellow and sent yet another shudder down Tim Cook's spine.

While VNC/Remote Desktop Apps have been available for the iPhone for a while (see Chad's Jaadu vs. Mocha Showdown), a helpful Fortune Blog reader points us the differences in the Citrix solution:

Apple Adds New Samples to iPhone SDK

iPhone developer extraordinaire Erica Sadun over at Ars reveals that Apple has expanded on the iPhone SDK samples, and with some pretty nifty new stuff.

While I can't claim to understand it, included in the update is aurioTouch and oalTouch for scilloscope and positional audio, Accessory and TouchCells which (apparently!) give greater options in tables and cells, and URLCache and Reflection which focus on Web-based data and image reflections respectively.

Says Sadun:

Forum Review: SearchDial for the iPhone

Forum Review: SearchDial for the iPhone

Forum Review by cjvitek For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum!

Note: This review was requested on the review request thread.

Search Dial is just that...a searching program for numbers to dial. But it adds a little more functionality into just looking through your contact list.

The Search Dial interface is very straightfoward. When you start the program, you are presented with a screen to select "call", "SMS", or "Email". You then start to type a persons name (first or last) and as your type, contacts that match the description start to appear. The more you type, the more specific you are, and the more it narrows down the contact options. Let's look at each of the options one at a time.
