iTunes Gift Certificates Not Accepted at Canadian App Store

iTunes Gift Certificates Not Accepted at Canadian App Store

You can't use an iTunes gift certificate to buy applications on the Canadian App Store. I've experienced this myself, but never really looked into it before now. But it's true. There's even a thread about it on Apple's Discussion Board.

Highlights include the difference in iTunes App Store Terms of Service between the US:

"10. PAYMENT METHODS. The Service accepts credit cards, payment through your PayPal account, and iTunes Cards, iTunes Store Gift Certificates, and Allowance Account balances as forms of payment."

What if Apple Killed Paid Apps for Unlocked/Developer iPhones? Google Android Did!

What if Apple Killed Paid Apps for Unlocked/Developer iPhones? Google Android Did!

Apple decides which apps get approved for the iPhone/iPod touch App Store, provides little to no transparency on the process, prevents certain things like turn-by-turn GPS outright in the SDK agreement, and -- though they've yet to use them -- maintains black lists for GPS and malware that could remove any LocationServices or entire applications from iPhones everywhere. For this, and more, Apple has earned quite a bit of criticism -- and rightly so in many cases.

Yet Another MobileMe Phishing Scam

Stealing credit card information is big business so perhaps it should come as no surprise that we're seeing so many phishing attacks targeted at even niche services like MobileMe. We've reported on a bunch of them already, and this latest one is just more of the same.

Palm Pre "Cards" Deja Viewed in Mobile Safari "Tabs"

Palm Pre "Cards" Deja Viewed in Mobile Safari "Tabs"

We've mentioned this in passing before, but the parallels, if any, are worth making more prominent.

Using webOS, which is a localized, almost widget-ized development environment (using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and enhanced local access), the Palm Pre can run many WebApps at the same time. The way it's visualized is with the "card" metaphor, where a touch of the Home-like button shrinks the current screen down to a thumbnail that's kept live and updated in real time. The interface also lets users shuffle the apps like cards in a fanned-out deck. You re-arrange the cards and can even terminate an app by "throwing it away".

Quick App: QWERTY 5-Row Keyboard for Jailbreak

Tired of hitting the 123 key to toggle on the numeric keyboard? Well, obviously some ingenious iPhone hacker was and whipped up this interesting little Jailbreak app to change the standard 4-row virtual keyboard into a five row with numbers surfaced right on top (or symbols, if you tap the shift key).

Live in Japan? Want an iPhone 3G for FREE?

Live in Japan? Want an iPhone 3G for FREE?

And we thought $99 rumors at Walmart sounded cheap! According to Apple Insider, if you live in Japan and don't mind signing a 2-year deal with official carrier SoftBank, you can take home an 8GB iPhone 3G for FREE!

No matter the exchange rate, zero is zero, so if you've been holding out for an iPhone of your very own, is this finally enough the sway you? And most importantly, what Emoji will you use to express your free iPhone feelings?

(For our non-Japanese readers think AT&T, Rogers, or any other carrier will match this deal any time soon..?

Apple Annual Shareholder Meeting Today

Apple Annual Shareholder Meeting Today

Apple will be holding their annual general shareholder meeting today. The Board of Directors (including Google CEO, iPhone partner, and Android rival Eric Schmidt) is up for re-election, and management will supposedly be held to answer by shareholders, but Steve Jobs will not be in attendance (he's still out on leave), and we don't really expect much in the way of specific iPhone news.

Of course, if anything interesting does come out, you know we'll keep you covered.

CEOh-Snap! Microsoft's Ballmer Says iPhone Has Mojo but WinPho Has Momentum!

CEOh-Snap! Microsoft's Ballmer Says iPhone Has Mojo but WinPho Has Momentum!

Microsoft PR must hate it every single time CEO Steve Ballmer gets on a mic. Bloggers on the other hand...? From the latest analyst briefing:

"The truth of the matter is all the consumer market mojo is with Apple and to a lesser extent BlackBerry. And yet, the real market momentum with operators and the real market momentum with device manufacturers seems to primarily be with Windows Mobile and Android."

Um.. Apple and BlackBerry manufacture their own devices there Steve, so while their internal momentum is enough to steamroll an industry, ODM's can't get their hands on iPhone OS X or RIM's OS no matter how badly they probably want to.

Review: Krusell Hector Leather Case for iPhone and iPhone 3G

I'm a big fan of not using a hard case as doing so hides the beauty of the iPhone. So I tend to look for pouches, sleeves, and sometimes leather cases. Enter the Krusell Hector Leather Case for the iPhone and iPhone 3G which happens to be available in iMore Store for $29.95. I've spent a good amount of time using this case, so read on for the full review!
