PodcasterGate: Rejects Gagged and Ad-Hoc Slagged!

Start alienating your developer base and there's two ways to handle it: the right way, and the current Apple way. Delicious Monster's Wil Shipley offers up what should be required reading for both Apple PR and App Store staff, on how to go about the right way: let the market decide. Apple, much to their discredit on this one, has chosen pretty much the exact opposite. Macrumors reports:

Apple's Smart Buying Process Now Live!

Apple's Smart Buying Process Now Live!

Does anyone remember the good old days when you could walk into a Apple store and walk right out with an iPhone that was not opened or activated via an Apple store employee? Well those days are long gone but Apple did make one step in the right direction with their new smart buying process.

This process basically allows you to start the buying process at home instead of doing it all in store. You enter in all of your billing information, review your eligibility and pricing options, and the final step consists of you selecting your AT&T rate plan.

Today on the Forums: Android vs. iPhone 3G! How Many Home Screen Pages Do You Have?

Today is a good day, we have had a few Android related stories today here at TiPb but competition is good.

It's brought to us by none other than our very own writer extraordinaire, Rene. Android vs iPhone! What are your thoughts?

Android vs. iPhone: The Battle for Funnerest Begins!

Android vs. iPhone: The Battle for Funnerest Begins!

Yeah, A-Day -- it's like that. No sooner did Apple announce the iPod Touch as the "funnest" ever (yet apparently didn't tell OS X's built in dictionary not to take issue with that obscure, yet valid usage...), then Google and T-Mobile decided to have a little, er, "fun" with it themselves:

UPDATED: AndroidCentral Meta Live-Blog: gPhone or iClone?

A-Day just goes on and on. We're not obsessed, mind you, but for reasons outlined before, from Google's CEO being on the Apple board, to Google services being inextricably linked into the iPhone, to Location Based (Mobile) Services and the Cloud being the Next Big Thing, this launch matters to iPhone owners almost as much as Windows Mobile (whom they're gunning to replace) and Palm OS 2.0 (whom they may render obsolete before launch).

Curious to know more? We are! In fact, Dieter's Meta Live Blogging the even right now over at AndroidCentral.

Google Location for iPhone: Smaller is Now Better!

Google Location for iPhone: Smaller is Now Better!

The iPhone Map App, which leverages Google's mapping services, became location aware with 1.1.3, and GPS enabled with the iPhone 3G and 2.0.

Basically, it superimposes a blue circle around the area it believes you're located. More confident the belief, smaller the circle. GPS lock, and a blue dot shows up. Only problem? Sometimes there's not dot and Google's lack of confidence results in a pretty huge circle. Well, last week Google's blog announced some improvements:

TiPb Answers: Secure Individual Apps on the iPhone?

TiPb Answers: Secure Individual Apps on the iPhone?

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!). For today's debut TiPb Answers, reader Ryan asks:

I've installed some apps on my phone from itunes, one being facebook mobile. What concerns me is that once i've entered my user/pw the first time it is never required again and anyone who simply "slides" the phone unlocked will have full access. I assume this is true for email as well (although I haven't set that up yet.)

My question is, is there any way to passcode a particular icon on the iphone? Or put a security lock on it?
