Buh Bye SDK NDA - Hello iPhone Developalooza!

Buh Bye SDK NDA - Hello iPhone Developalooza!

No sooner did Apple drop the iPhone SDK Non-Disclosure Agreement (fondly referred to as the [Redacted] NDA among aficionados, as it forbade developers discussing the topic even among themselves), then the floodgates of knowledge burst open. Cases in point:

According to TUAW, iPhone coder extraordinaire Erica Sadun's The iPhone Developer's Cookbook is already available in PDF form from informIT (along with code samples!):

The OLO Computer: iPhone-Powered Netbook Concept

The OLO Computer: iPhone-Powered Netbook Concept

MobiFrance points us to this intriguing company: http://olo-computer.com/. It looks like they're intending on developing a low-cost sort of Netbook, but with a difference -- it will be powered by the iPhone. The idea is you plug your iPhone into the bottom and it not only becomes the touchpad for the Netbook, it also powers the thing entirely, the rest of the hardware is simply a keyboard, screen, and a few other bits to make it all run.

It's an idea that's already been done with Windows Mobile in the form of the Redfly.

Review: BlueAnt Z9i Bluetooth Headset

Review: BlueAnt Z9i Bluetooth Headset

Is there a difference between a high-end Bluetooth Headset compared to a normal one? With so many hands-free driving laws being passed these days, the question is obviously on many consumer’s minds. The BlueAnt Z9i ($74.95) is one of those high-end headsets that manages to combine a small and sleek form factor and with a powerful piece of technology, Digital Signal Processor (DSP). On paper, it is everything you want in a Bluetooth headset. How does it test? Does it accomplish everything it sets out to do?

Read on for the rest of the review!

Could Apple ship an iPhone HD in 2009?

Could Apple ship an iPhone HD in 2009?

Without fail, the moment Apple launches a great product or new revision, within moments talk quickly shifts back to "what's next?!" Last month it was the iPod and iTunes. This month it's the MacBook. But with Macworld slowly ramping up, and competitors slowly turning iClones into specced out SuperClones, the blogsphere spotlight will inevitably turn back to the iPhone, and just what device they'll dent our universe with next.

What if it's an iPhone HD?

MLB At Bat Is On Sale! But Buyer Beware!

MLB At Bat Is On Sale! But Buyer Beware!

MLB At Bat just announced a price cut that puts the price at a very affordable $2.99 (from $5) to get an impressive app with a slick interface and great features. Good deal, right? How thoughtful of you MLB to cut the price just in time for playoffs so us fans can get a taste of the action. WRONG.

Why is it a bad deal? Because you have to buy MLB At Bat again next year! The current version of MLB At Bat will expire after the end of the season which is in approximately the end of this month. Maybe even sooner. So if it's worth it to you to spend money on an app that will be useless in a few weeks time, by golly do it! But for the rest of us, Sportacular should work fine.

TiPb Answers: Why No WebApp for Apple's WebApp Site?

TiPb Answers: Why No WebApp for Apple's WebApp Site?

TiPb loves answering your emails, but we also love sharing our answers with the community in hopes that more people will benefit, and even better answers will present themselves (hey, that's why we have them forums!). Today's question comes from Jozsoo:

Is there an iPhone-friendly version of the web apps section of Apple's site? Seems odd to me that the iPhone maker has no such tailor-made service on its site. Or am I missing something? Maybe you could cover this on your blog for others, too, to know.

TiPb answers, after the jump!

Apple to Announce New Notebooks on October 14th

Engadget brings the news: there will be an Apple event next week, on October 14th. Obviously, based on the invitation above (which we didn't receive, sniffle), the focus is going to be on notebooks. Presumably there will be a new form factor or two to talk about here based on Apple's rumored "Brick" manufacturing technique, where they carve the case out of a single block of aluminum.

The only possible iPhone angles we're seeing here:
