CopierciN: Another Attempt at Copy and Paste

CopierciN: Another Attempt at Copy and Paste

Just how badly do you want copy and paste? Here at TiPb we have covered several stories revolving around copy and paste, go ahead and take a look, it may just make your head spin.

Who knows if Apple will ever include copy and paste in a future firmware update... Until that day comes, if it does come, we have to rely on other means.  Namely jailbreaking.  This is where CopierciN comes into play. It is latest attempt to bring us a very simple, yet effective, feature and is now available for jailbreakers via Cydia.

iPhone 3G Takes Home "Gadget of the Year" Award

iPhone 3G Takes Home "Gadget of the Year" Award

Apple's iPhone 3G wins "Gadget of the Year" according to readers of Stuff Magazine. Ok, are you really that shocked??? Not me. (Of course there were only 2% of all iPhone 3G owners having some issues... right?) The UK's Stuff Magazine deemed the iPhone 3G as being a:

The devices that competed against the iPhone 3G were as follows: Microsoft's Xbox 360 console, Nintendo's Wii Fit, and B&W's Zeppelin iPod speakers. All of the products up for this honor were judged in categories including performance, design and value, as well as "cool factor".

Congratulations to the iPhone 3g!

Opera Was the Original Browser... For the iPhone?!

Opera Was the Original Browser... For the iPhone?!

Opera, the admirable yet often un-admired cross-platform web browser alternative to Internet Explorer on the PC, Safari on the Mac, and Firefox pretty much everywhere, was considered by Apple to be the original baked-in surfing standard for the iPhone?

Huhbuwha?

That's pretty much what we thought too, though Valleywag stands behind the story:

Review: OtterBox Defender Series for iPhone

39

Review: OtterBox Defender Series for iPhone

Many iPhone cases on the market offer fairly simple protection that serve more for an iPhone owner's peace of mind than offering extreme protection. The OtterBox Defender Series for iPhone ($49.95), however, is one of the few cases that carefully map and design their product to ensure superb protection.

How does the Otterbox perform? Is it as secure and successful as the case suggests? Or is it just another case in the iPhone pipeline? Could it all be just a gimmick?

Read on for the rest of the review!

Documents to Go is Coming to the iPhone!

Looking for a mobile office suite for your iPhone? Almost a year ago, when the SDK was announced, Dataviz looked for iPhone users input:

Attack of the iClones: HTC Touch HD Edition

Attack of the iClones: HTC Touch HD Edition

Confession: My secret, innermost desire for the iPhone 3G was a 420p display. I knew Apple wouldn't do it yet -- there was nothing in their simultaneously released SDK to support any other resolutions -- but still... I wants-ded it!

Imagine my fanboy chagrin, then, when HTC goes and not only makes a device in exactly the same dimensions as the iPhone 3G (obvious much?), but slaps a monstrous 800x480 display on the beast! (Not to mention a 5(!) megapixel camera)

TuneCore Lets You Distribute on iTunes

Along with CDBaby, TuneCore was and is one of the best ways for independent artists to get their music onto iTunes without going through the hassle of trying to score a full-on record deal with the thieves big record labels.

Apple Remote 1.1 Now Available in App Store... With Genius!

8

Apple Remote 1.1 Now Available in App Store... With Genius!

Apple's iTunes and Apple TV Remote App was one of the first -- and arguably still one of the best -- releases via the App Store back in July. We loved it in our original review, and now that Apple has pushed out a 1.1 update, there's a tiny bit more to love:

  • Create Genius playlists
  • Create and edit playlists in iTunes

An obvious update, given how the feature has headlined iTunes 8 and iPhone 2.1 (and iPod Touch 2.1). Hopefully this will also solve some problems for those who experienced them post update.

Still no support for Front Row, however, which is perplexing given how great that service makes the Mac Mini media center. Please get on that, Apple!

Get in now via the iTunes App Store, and check out our pics of the new functionality... after the break!

(And thanks MAB for the tip!)

PodcasterGate: The Great App Rejection Debate

9

PodcasterGate: The Great App Rejection Debate

Seems it wasn't a hair that broke the blogerati's back, it was an App. Or more precisely, it was Apple's denial of the Podcaster App that let loose the floodgates of negative internet reaction. Or even more precisely, it is the continued lack of certainty among developers as to what can and will be denied by Apple, leading many to reconsider the return on investment of hours upon hours of coding with 11th hour rejection hanging perpetually over their heads, like a virtual Sword of Damocles.

Attack of the iClones: RIM Storm Rising Edition

The iPhone shook up a very complacent smartphone world, but if we think it exists in a vacuum, if we think the other big players won't respond (no matter how embarrassingly long it might take them), and if we don't hope that they do -- hardcore style -- to prevent Apple from one day getting just as complacent, then we're not doing our jobs as bloggers or consumers.

Flutter: MMS Alternative... Maybe?

Flutter: MMS Alternative... Maybe?

One of the biggest complaints I hear regarding the iPhone? You guessed it! Where is the picture mail (MMS)?! A while back I started a forum thread that told readers how to send a picture with a email attached to any cell phone, to any network, from the iPhone. But the truth of the matter is, MMS is really not all that it is cracked up to be. (it is convenient though, I will give it that). I'm used to not having MMS on my Sprint Windows Mobile devices so when I made the switch to an iPhone it was never a big deal. But for some, it's a major deal.

Watch Out: iTunes SD Shows May Overwrite HD Versions

Watch Out: iTunes SD Shows May Overwrite HD Versions

As we mentioned earlier, when you purchase an HD TV show from iTunes you're actually getting two copies of the show -- one version in HD and another in standard definition for your iPhone. They're two separate files and, well, apparently they don't always go great together. Ars Technica is reporting that when iTunes gets around to downloading the SD version, some users are finding that it's overwriting the HD file.

Force Unleashed in the iPhone App Store Now! (Updated With Preview Gallery!)

Outside Spore, and perhaps the recently demoed Need for Speed, there's no bigger game waiting on this year's iPhone horizon than THQ's Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. And now it's available via the iTunes App Store.

We're already downloading and will be back with a review as soon as we can get with the dark side and bring some order to the galaxy...

You got it yet? How's it seem? Awesome like the original trilogy, or prequel city?

(And any sign of Lightsaber Unleashed yet?)
