Patent Watch: iPhone Interface to Go Shake and Grow?

Patent Watch: iPhone Interface to Go Shake and Grow?

MacRumors has dug up an interesting Apple patent application that would try to mitigate the difficulty associated with tapping while moving (i.e. jogging, back seat of cab, etc.) by dynamically increasing the size of targets in the user interface when it detects jerky motion.

Will we ever see it in an actual iPhone? Who knows. Would it be helpful if, while you're trying to add a potential dates new contact info at the social while getting your krump on, the icons and input areas kept zooming up on you?

iPhone Live! Tonight 8pm EDT/5pm PDT

iPhone Live! hits the nets again tonight (Wednesday, April 15) at 8pm EDT/5pm PDT.

Pre-show will start about 10 min. before if you want to drop by early. With iPhone 3.0 Beta 3 being released yesterday, more next gen iPhone rumors still hitting daily, and all sorts of other news, App, carrier, and Steve Jobs related, it looks to be a jam-packed show.

Oh, and Jeremy, our very own Bad Ash, might just be making his Live! debut as well.

Apple Stores Currently Selling 22 iPhones on Average a Day?

Apple Stores Currently Selling 22 iPhones on Average a Day?

Apple Insider, covering Piper Jaffray's favorite Apple analyst, Gene Munster, passes along:

Sales of 22 iPhones per stores is down from 28 iPhones per store during November, which suggests a 21 percent decline in sales sequentially compared to the Street's view of a 24 percent drop. However, Munster is betting that expanded international availability will help offset some of these domestic declines and is therefore modeling iPhone sales for the March quarter to be relatively flat at 4.4 million units.

Review: iharmonix Pro i-Series Stereo Headset for iPhone

Review: iharmonix Pro i-Series Stereo Headset for iPhone

The iPhone and music pretty much go hand and hand. Your music deserves to be played through a more than decent stereo headset, one that can deliver clear, clean, crisp sound at any volume. That said, I jumped at the chance to try out the iharmonix Pro i-Series Stereo Headset and put it through some serious usage. You can purchase this exact headset right in TiPb's very own store, for the low price of $39.95. Honestly, I did not know what to expect while waiting for UPS to drop these babies off but I will admit, I was pleasantly surprised. For a full review, read on after the break!

iPhone 3.0 Beta 3: In-App Purchase Restriction Setting

Jeremy recently whipped up an iPhone 101 how to on using Restrictions to set some parental controls, and we've had a peek at what Apple already surfaced in previous iPhone 3.0 betas, but now it looks like Beta 3 gets a tad more granular with an extra option:

  • In App Purchase

Along with Installing Apps, you can selectively disable the ability for you, or someone you parentally control, from impulse buying those extra game levels or custom sound systems and super-weapons.

Likely a Good Thing.

Dear Apple: Why Can't Apps Access the Calendar?

I was just listening to Dieter and Mike's latest PalmCast, where they were crowing in duet about how sweet it was that the Palm Pre has an app that can book movie tickets and automagically add the movie event information to the Palm Pre calendar.

App Review: FCmobilelife Tasks by FranklinCovey for iPhone

App Review: FCmobilelife Tasks by FranklinCovey for iPhone

Once upon a time, all of the basic features that we use a smartphone for were previously handled by the standard PDA, and before that, pen and paper. I used to carry the FranklinCovey planner system with me, where I faithfully checked off my task list as I completed them. FranklinCovey has done well to embrace the digital age, and now they have a Task app in Apple's App Store - FCmobilelife can be found here for $5.99.

Given there seems to be as many task and to-do apps as there are fart apps, how well does FranklinCovey's FCmobilelife Tasks hold up? Will it help you prioritize and get things done? Read on for a quick review!
