Regarding an Amazon tablet (or, bringing content to an experience fight)

Regarding an Amazon tablet (or, bringing content to an experience fight)

There's been talk of an Amazon super-Kindle running Android OS since... about 5 minutes after Steve Jobs left the stage following the original iPad introduction. Now that Amazon has launched their Appstore (TM in contention), that talk is heating up again. And why not? It's an obvious play. I'd be surprised if Amazon hasn't had one in the labs for a while now (just like I would have been surprised if Facebook hadn't been working on a phone...)

Amazon has content like iTunes, including (in the US at least -- and more on that in a moment), ebooks, movies, TV shows, music, and now apps. They've made hardware before with the Kindle line.

But they're hardly the only one.

Google updates Latitude and Places apps, check-ins now included

Google has updated two of its apps, Google Latitude and Google Places. The apps are designed to help you connect with the people you care about at the places you love!

Google Latitude now has the added feature of check-ins, which allow you to see where your friends are on a map as well as choose to continually share your location information. When this setting is turned on, your location and check-ins will be done automatically; you will also be checked out when you leave so your friends know you have left. This is an opt in service and runs in the background on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPad’s with 3G.

Gevey SIM unlocks iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3 with the latest baseband [video]

Gevey SIM unlocks iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3 with the latest baseband [video]

A SIM card hack known as Gevey has been released to unlock the iPhone 4 running the latest iOS 4.3 software and baseband. This is a hardware hack as opposed to a software hack like Ultrasn0w.

The hack involves a wafer thing SIM, that needs to be inserted in the SIM card tray along with the actual SIM card that you wish to use in your iPhone 4. You then have to follow a short procedure of dialling an emergency number, hanging up, then toggling flight mode on and off a few times. Then service with your chosen provider magically appears. It is a little convoluted and has to be repeated if you reset your iPhone 4 or run out of battery.

The Grevey SIM will cost in the region of $75 and supports iOS 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 4.2.1, 4.3 and baseband 1.59.00, 2.10.04, 3.10.01, 04.10.01. This is a costly solution if you are in need of a SIM unlock for your iPhone 4. It is currently the only one available; and you do not need to jailbreak! If you really need an unlock solution, it may be worth considering.

Sony Xperia Play videos get NSFW on iPhone!

Sony Xperia Play videos get NSFW on iPhone!

Um. Okay. Wow. Sony Ericsson, makers of the Xperia Play (aka PSP Phone) went out and got Kristen Schaal from the Daily Show to go all NSFW on iPhone gaming in a new series of YouTube videos (these can't air on primetime TV, right?). You've got your Killing It, Pwnage, Kittenlicious, Kristennetsirk, and Kristen within Kristen, and no kidding -- there's adult language, sexual situations, violence, and nebulous shots taken at our precious iPhone.

(Interestingly, the videos are actually light on real PSP game play. It would have been nice to see them show off their games vs. Infinity Blade, Real Racing 2, Dead Space, and other top tier iPhone games... Right?)

Check out the videos after the break and let us know what you think, full of win or marketing #fail?

Apple releases iOS 4.2.1 (4.3.1) bug fix update for Apple TV

Apple releases iOS 4.2.1 (4.3.1) bug fix update for Apple TV

Apple TV owners, Apple has just released an iOS 4.2.1 (4.3.1) update just for you. So turn on your television, click on over to Software Update, and start your download. It's a bug fix update as far as we can tell, mostly geared towards fixing the screen flicker and color issues some users have been complaining about.

If you have an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad there's nothing for you (yet) so it's interesting to see

(And once again we'll ask Apple to end the insanity of having a 4.2.1 software that's version number 4.3.1 and just settle on the same number as the rest of the iOS family -- pretty please?)

App Store down?

App Store down?

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/styles/400w400h/public/images/stories/2011/01/Screen-shot-2011-01-22-at-9.20.20-AM.png" alt="App Store down?" title=App Store down?" width="400" height="224" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-53608" />

We're getting a lot of reports from readers that they can't connect to the iTunes App Store from either their Mac or Windows PCs, or iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Some readers are saying they can connect, however, so while it's down for a lot of people, it may not be down for everyone.

Let us know either way!

UPDATED: Controversy over the Apple approved 'Anti-Gay app'

Exodus International recently launched an app that has the general public and LGBT community in an uproar. The app basically contains a lot of the same information Exodus International has on their website. They focus on individuals who want help dealing with unwanted same-sex attraction. I know many churches and organizations that like to have apps so their members can have easy access to their content.
