How-To: Create an iTunes App Store account without a credit card

Apple has helpfully created a knowledge base article describing the process for creating an App Store account sans credit card.

The process involves making sure you're not already logged in with another account, then choosing App Store from the menu, downloading a free app, choosing "none" for the payment type, and responding to the confirmation menu.

iPhone 3.0: Mobile Safari Gets Enhanced Security Certificate Visualization

Looks like another desktop Safari 4 Beta feature has found its way into the iPhone 3.0 version of the browser. Now, when you go to a site with an enhanced security certificate, the text on top of the browser turns green (like the green bar, we get it!), with little green lock icon beside it, and the name of the certificate's trusted organization. For example, the above screenshots show how Apple's order status page looks on iPhone 2.2.1 (top right) and iPhone 3.0.

Want a Gmail App on the iPhone?

While Google's Gmail is still in "beta", they done a lot of good stuff for the iPhone including a quirky but usable IMAP implementation so we can keep mail synced on our mobile, desktop, and cloud. But Gmai's quirkiness isn't restricted to IMAP, the whole concept of GMail just "thinks different", from it's April 1st, everyone-thought-it-was-a-joke launch, to its labels rather than folders, stars rather than flags, and flat search rather than hierarchical sort.

All this leads some to consider a separate GMail client for the iPhone, rather than leaving it bundled into Apple's own MobileMail app. The Google Android G1 goes this route. You have one app for Gmail and another app for all your other mail. Would we ever see this on the iPhone?

Ars Technica spoke with Gmail Product Manager Todd Jackson, who had this to say (or rather, not say):

he did leave the possibility of a dedicated iPhone client on the table

But what would this mean?

UPDATED: Skype for iPhone Now Available! (Everywhere but Canada!)

UPDATE: Skype seems to be live now in the US App Store [iTunes Link]. If you find it in any other App Store's please let us know in the comments. [Thanks daveizzle for the tip!]

UPDATE 2: According to CBC News, Skype will NOT be available in Canada (though it will be everywhere else). The reason, a patent-license restrictions on Skype's end that they won't discuss.
