HD Content: Coming to an iPhone Near You?

HD Content: Coming to an iPhone Near You?

Last week Rene reported on the upcoming iTunes 8 release and how HD content may be included. According to a source over at Gizmodo, the iPhone handles full 1080p screen resolution "just fine".

My guess is that if this does indeed turn out to be true, we will more than likely start seeing video clips in 720p right on the iPhone. I say 720p simply because that happens to be Apple TV's native HD resolution. In my opinion, 1080p is a little too much. Actually it is complete overkill for such a small screen.

A Look Inside the "Let's Rock" Crystal Ball

A Look Inside the "Let's Rock" Crystal Ball

Today brings Let's Rock. You know, Apple's yearly pre-holiday event. The one that the entire tech-verse has been chomping at the bit for since roughly 0.001 seconds after Steve Jobs left the stage at WWDC 08. The one that will answer: "What's next?"

But that’s all we know: Let's Rock, September 9. We don’t know what, exactly, Apple will announce, or even if Steve Jobs himself will be announcing it (though we certainly think so!) -- or more importantly for the end user: whether or not "OMG new firmware can has stability!!11"

However, that won't for one Jobs-forsaken minute prevent us from guessing!

Steve Jobs Keynoting at "Let's Rock"?

Steve Jobs Keynoting at "Let's Rock"?

Personally, I believe Steve Jobs' health is his business unless and until it materially affects his ability to act as Apple's CEO, and I believe a great deal of the internet speculation has been in poor taste, to say the least. But more than anything, I believe in the rights and freedoms of other people and sites to cover things however they best believe. So, while I'll spare you my rant on how the stock market has gone from something that encouraged investment to grow companies and wealth over generations and increasingly turned it into the speculative, impatient mess that is modern hysteritrading, I will say I love me some Steve Jobs Keynotes, and it looks like we may just be getting one more for the record books tomorrow.

Spore Origins: Now Available in App Store

Well it's finally here. Spore! The game that we've been waiting for ever since the 2.0 firmware was announced.

It was released today and can be purchased at the App Store for a cool $9.99.

TiPb will be back with a hands-on review, but I played around with it early this afternoon and I must say it is a very well polished game that is worth it's price tag.

iPhone Analysts vs. Magic 8-Ball: Let's Rock Edition!

iPhone Analysts vs. Magic 8-Ball: Let's Rock Edition!

Welcome to iPhone Analysts vs. the Magic 8-Ball, where we take the often outlandish, sometime surreal predictions of iPhone analysts and pundits, blogeratti and the ‘net elite, and compare them to the potentially equally precise prognostications of a… magic 8-ball (running on an iPhone, of course!)

This edition rounds up some of the mountain of rumors piling up in advance of Tuesday's "Let's Rock" event. Let's get it on!

  • Apple Insider/Shaw Wu: Will Apple's "Let's Rock" Event disappoint? Yes
  • Apple Insider/Shaw Wu: Will Apple release new MacBooks (Pro/Air)? Very doubtful
  • Apple Insider/Shaw Wu: Will Apple unveil a new Apple TV DVR? Ask again later
  • Apple Insider/Shaw Wu: Will Apple unveil an iTablet/MacBook Touch? Very Doubtful
  • iLounge: Is the thicker, more tapered iPod Touch for realz? Yes
  • Ars Technica: Will iPhone 2.1 contain "secret" features? Don't count on it
  • MacRumors/Kevin Rose: Is Magnetosphere the new, trippy iTunes Visualizer? It is certain
  • Microsoft/Seinfeld: Will the new TV commercial help Vista? Very Doubtful

And for those still keeping score on the last round, the current standings are after the jump!

iTunes 8.0 Leaked? And Kevin Rose Tweaked?

Kevin Rose, bound by vengeance to clear his name of false rumors past, has been laying the veritable smack down on Apple's "Let's Rock" Event. It's like he's got Phil Schiller on the Bat-iPhone or something.

The latest? The above mock up of what iTunes 8.0's interface will look like, along with a roundup of rumors thus far. Maybe he'll digg his way out of this yet! (Har!)

Phone Saber Unleashed Coming This Month?

Phone Saber Unleashed Coming This Month?

Phone Saber was one of the most popular and talked about apps pretty much since the day Apple's on-board store launched. Hey, turn your iPhone into a sound-a-like Star Wars lightsaber? What's not to love?

Well, for THQ -- exclusive Lucas licensor of all things Star Wars for all things Mobile -- infringement for one. Too their credit, however, rather than just getting Apple to yank the App, THQ brought it onboard, and now they write in to tell us:

The Free iPhone Video Recorder - Cycorder

132

The Free iPhone Video Recorder - Cycorder

If you have been missing that all-important video recorder functionality for your iPhone, look no further than Cycorder. Now before you get all excited let me first say the only way you will be able to get this app is to have a jailbroken phone along with Cydia.

Jay Freeman, the author of other jailbroken apps such as Cydia and Winterboard, released Cycorder. It does have ads, but I can assure they do not get in your way. Just keep in mind these ads are keeping this app free for all of us.

Cycorder's video is shockingly decent for a cell phone video recorder. Recording in .mov format, Cycorder gets anywhere from 7-15 frames per second. It did not support audio when it was first released, but it does now. An update has just been released and it finally supports audio, though this clip does not contain any.

To get Cycorder simply go into Cydia and you will see it on the "Featured Packages" list on the front page. Download and enjoy!

Video and screenshot, after the break!

[Thanks for the tip Art!]
