Apple 2008 Q4 Conference Call Tomorrow

4

Apple 2008 Q4 Conference Call Tomorrow

Just a reminder that Apple will hold their 2008 Q4 Conference Call tomorrow at 2pm PDT/ 5pm EDT, which should include the first full quarter of iPhone sales, and thus those iPhone sales numbers every analyst and their magic 8-ball have been slathering for.

As always, TiPb will be here with coverage of all the highlights (and lowlights, if needed), but we have to remind everyone that, unlike a SteveNote presentation, conference calls are less with the "BOOM!" and more with the drone-like repetition of corporate governance (@$$ coverage), ad naseum infinitum. Tim Cook will likely handle hosting duties, as he did last time.

See you then!

Forum Review: iFXMagic for the iPhone

Forum Review: iFXMagic for the iPhone

[The Lightning Reviews are over, but from their ashes rise... the Forum Reviews! TiPb has assembled a crack team of App-aficionados, and every week we'll be bringing you a few of their very best reviews right here on the blog. And be sure to check out TiPb's iPhone App Store Forum for even more!]

iFXMagic Forum Review by cjvitek

Given the lack of iPhone tools for camera or picture editing (you don't even have some basic filters on the camera!), I saw this program and was pretty excited. It is advertised as a way to add filters to your pictures, including many filters that are commonly found on major software editing packages. So I decided to pick this up and take a look to see what it offered.

iPhone App Avalanche 14: Accounts, iXpenseIt, Bloomberg Mobile and CreditTrak

iPhone App Avalanche 14: Accounts, iXpenseIt, Bloomberg Mobile and CreditTrak

It's time for App Avalanche 14, and this week we're taking a look at the Finance category in the App Store and at what's Good, Better, Best, and, of course, the CrApp. If you are looking for some good finance apps, there are a load of apps in the App Store in this category. Unfortunately, there seem to be a ton of very mediocre apps (according to reviews left by App Store visitors), and it takes a bit of sifting through the coal dust to find some diamonds. Read on to learn about some Finance apps you may want to try for yourself!

Can iPhone Developers Make a Living on the App Store's "Long Tail"? - TiPb of the Iceberg

Can iPhone Developers Make a Living on the App Store's "Long Tail"? - TiPb of the Iceberg


("Unique" by Hamed Masoumi, licensed under Creative Commons)

[Introducing TiPb of the Iceberg, our new, bi-weekly column from TiPb Senior Editor, and all-around Smartphone Expert, Dieter Bohn.]

The recent news that development house Tap Tap Tap is breaking up has me thinking about the App Store and developers again. Partially it's because Tap Tap Tap has previously been mentioned here at TiPb as an example of developers raking in the cash and as an example of developers being open about how much they're making and what they think of the industry. The break-up is interesting for a few reasons in this context.

After the break, some ruminations and thoughts on the State of the Apps from this layman's point of view. Warning: as you can see from the title, this post includes hackneyed references to the Long Tail

Review: Incipio dermaSHOT Silicone Case for iPhone 3G

Review: Incipio dermaSHOT Silicone Case for iPhone 3G

Everybody has his or her own definition for the perfect iPhone 3G Case. Some may want a hard plastic case, others prefer rubbery silicone cases but most prefer a case that is non intrusive and more importantly, offers protection while adding minimal bulk. The Incipio dermaSHOT Silicone Case for iPhone 3G ($14.95) is a rubber silicone case that tries to offer a layer of protection without adding much thickness. How does it perform?

App Preview: Qik About to Stream Live on the iPhone? Join Kevin Now!

App Preview: Qik About to Stream Live on the iPhone? Join Kevin Now!

Yup, Kevin Rose is back, back again, this time with a sneak peak at Qik for the iPhone, the online video broadcasting App that everyone and their Twitter-feed was "going live" with on the Nokia N95 last year.

Not a jailbreak, but a real honest-to-Steveness App Store application, Kevin says it will be available soon. We say... will Apple approve it? And if they do, what will it say having internet broadcast video capability on a device that still lacks support for local video recording?

A Really Big iPod Touch Advertisement Invades ESPN.com

A Really Big iPod Touch Advertisement Invades ESPN.com

If anyone checked out ESPN.com late last night they would have been smacked right in the eye with quite possibly the biggest iPod Touch Banner Ad Ever. After releasing the new iPhone "game changer" commercial during the baseball playoffs, it looks like Apple is focusing on expanding the iPhone/iPod Touch product line by reaching sports fans. Good idea? I don't know maybe Apple is thinking they can turn sports fans into Apple fanboys..

iPhone-dev Team 3G Unlock Update

iPhone-dev Team 3G Unlock Update

Jeremy recently reported that the iPhone-dev Team were inching towards an unlock for the iPhone 3G. This time, the iPhone-dev Team checks in through their blog saying that they have made "significant progress" with the 3G Unlock.

The team modified the baseband of the iPhone 3G and even though it failed the integrity check, it was still running. They state that though running modified code is extremely useful, they still can't give an accurate time table to when we will see a 3G Unlock. Click the read link to see a video of the process. And let's hope that the amazing iPhone-dev Team are able to get through.

iPhone/iPod Integration Hits 58% of US Cars!

iPhone/iPod Integration Hits 58% of US Cars!

Technically motor vehicles, we suppose, as people who can still afford to fill up the honking huge gas tanks on trucks and the like get their fair share of iPhone/iPod love as well, as Ars Technica reports that integration has now hit a majority level of 58%.

Proprietary dock port notwithstanding, Apple's dominance of the music player -- and now music phone -- market has no doubt driven (ha!) the adaption. More egalitarian-ly, USB integration has hit 33%, with an even higher rate of increase. Says Jeff Smykll:

iTunes HD TV: Over 1 Million Sold -- In the USA!

Back during September's iPod and iTunes focused "Let's Rock" event, Apple announced that they would begin carrying "stunning" HD TV Shows, and that -- surprise surprise -- NBC had come skulking back into the fold as well.

Now Apple reports that they have all 4 big US-based television networks: ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC available in HD, and what's more:

Tip o' the Week: Sync iPhone on Two Computers

Tip o' the Week: Sync iPhone on Two Computers

I don't know if you have tried this (I have), but if you attempt to sync your iPhone with any computer other than the one you originally synced with your iPhone, you will receive a warning that your iPhone is "synced with another iTunes library."  Your only choice at this point is to "Cancel" the operation or "Erase and Sync" because your iPhone can only be synced to one iTunes library at a time.  Or CAN it?

Thanks to a set of most excellent instructions from the Shiny Things blog of Andrew Grant located here, you can sync your iPhone with one or more additional computers. Read on to learn more!

Friday Fun Rumor: 3D Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation for iPhone Post 2.2?

Friday Fun Rumor: 3D Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation for iPhone Post 2.2?

Huge rumor. No corroboration. Not journalism. Posting this from a first time, antonymous tipster and if it doesn't pan out... well... I'll be boiled in clam chowder eventually anyway... But it's Friday and this is FUN. Of course, Dieter already told us about the complicated legal quagmire surrounding turn-by-turn GPS, but dagnabit, we wants it!

Android vs. iPhone: Which Does a Better Job Syncing to the Cloud?

Android vs. iPhone: Which Does a Better Job Syncing to the Cloud?

The Reviews of the Android G1 Phone on T-Mobile are out and the verdicts are generally as follows: Partly Cloudy1, but forecasting big things to come. We're not going to try to hit every point just yet, but there's one point where this "Sidekick for Grownups" has what appears to be a real advantage over everybody else: dead-simple cloud setup.

So compared to the iPhone, just how good is the setup on the G1? The answer is: Depends on whether or not you're a Gmail type of person.

Yeah, "depends" isn't exactly a clear answer, so follow us after the break for a bit more on whether the G1 is PIM Push Paradise compared to MobileMe's Mechanized Movement of information.

(1Sorry, could help myself with that pun)
