Dunk a Palm Pre and Win an iPhone 3GS

Dunk a Palm Pre and Win an iPhone 3GS

This one will be painful to watch for the good folks over at Precentral.net. It seems as if the owner of this particular Pre had some major screen issues that he couldn't live with any longer - 3 cracked screens in the span of 3 months.

Rest be assured, this device will be replaced with a new iPhone 3GS. At least that's what his friends told him...

All iPhone 3.1.2 Jailbreak Tool blackra1n for Windows Released

George Hotz, the man who brought you the jailbreak tool purplera1n, has once again impressed us all and this time it's an all iPhone 3.1.2 jailbreak only solution, blackra1n. Mac users need not apply as blackra1n is currently a Windows only application.

<

blockquote>So, what is blackra1n? blackra1n is a 30 second ALL device 3.1.2 jailbreak. Even the ipt3, but the ipt3 is tethered. In order to boot it, just rerun blackra1n. As far as donations go, they are much appreciated, but not until after blackra1n works for you. I never ask for donations before the tool is released.

T-Mobile Warns Sidekick Data May be Lost -- Timely Backup Reminder for All

T-Mobile has issued a warning that the ongoing, dare we say catastrophic failure of the Sidekick servers could result in permanent data loss if Sidekick users in any way reset their devices during the outage:

"Sidekick customers, during this service disruption, please DO NOT remove your battery, reset your Sidekick, or allow it to lose power."

Scary, but also an urgent reminder to everyone who uses Cloud Services, including iPhone owners with MobileMe, Exchange ActiveSync, Google Gmail/Calendar, or any other, similar accounts.

Apple Gobbling Up NAND Flash Memory Again

App Walkthrough: Tweetie 2.0 Twitter Client for iPhone

App Walkthrough: Tweetie 2.0 Twitter Client for iPhone

Tweetie 2.0 [$2.99 - iTunes link] is the second generation release of one of the iPhone's most popular Twitter clients. According to developer Atebits, it's also a ground-up re-write -- it even has a snazzy new gray, single, cut-out bubble icon to prove it -- the only thing 2.0 having in common with 1.0 being the name. I'd argue that point -- they're also both darn good Twitter clients, and they both share a price of $2.99.

That's right. Since Apple doesn't (yet?) provide a mechanism for upgrades (which to many developers means incentive and to many users means discount), and since in-app purchase can only add content, not replace an entire app, Atebits is packaging Tweetie 2.0 as a whole new app. And they're charging the same price. In other words, whether you bought the first Tweetie or not, you'll have to buy Tweetie 2.0.

Is it worth it? Let's take a look...
