iPhone 4 vs Evo 4G - Monday fun videos (NSFW-L)

iPhone 4 vs Evo 4G - Monday fun videos (NSFW-L)

Apple iPhone 4 vs Android Evo 4G as expressed by potty-mouthed, poorly animated, digitally voiced, anthropomorphic stuffed animals? Ohecksyeah.

If you're enjoying the 4th of July holiday in the US, or have a way to keep yourself safe at work outside the US, give these dueling videos a look and enjoy the good-natured iPhone and Android rivalry gone horribly wrong.

(And yeah, the guy who made them works at Best Buy mobile, never mentioned Best Buy in the videos, and still might get fired by the humorless big box -- who should be falling all over themselves offering him a job in their creative department.)

Again, NSFW-L, play at your own risk... of amusement.

[Thanks Anthony!]

Tired of waiting for a white iPhone 4? Do it yourself!

Tired of waiting for a white iPhone 4? Do it yourself!

While manufacturing problems have reportedly caused delays in Apple's own white iPhone 4 rollout, enterprising do-it-yourself (DIY) types, armed with tear-down guides and replacement parts from China are taking matters into their own hands.

Richard Lai from Engadget gave it a go, and while there are definitely some gotchas, who expects fashion to come without a price?

+ equals universal iPhone/iPad app in App Store

+ equals universal iPhone/iPad app in App Store

If you see a + sign next to or below an app in the iTunes App Store, it indicates that app is universal -- designed to work natively on both the iPhone and iPad.

Typically these universal apps are provided by developers when the functionality is similar on both iPad and iPhone, but due to the iPad's large screen a different interface is needed (to include sidebars, popovers, and wide views instead of deep levels).

It also means you only have to download -- and pay for -- the app once.

iOS 4 features: SMS/MMS failure exclamation badge

iOS 4 features: SMS/MMS failure exclamation badge

iOS 4 will now put an exclamation badge on the Messages app as a way to inform you when an SMS text or MMS multimedia message fails to send.

Previously, the exclamation badge was only present inside the Messages app itself, beside the message that failed to send. Unless you were there and checking, you might not see it, especially not right away.

Now, if and when there's been a failure to send, as long as you pass by the Messages icon on your home screen, there's a good chance you'll see it.

iPhone 3GS Review (2010)

47

iPhone 3GS Review (2010)

Yes, we're really reviewing the iPhone 3GS 8GB, Apple's other huge smartphone release for 2010. It went on sale the same day as iPhone 4, in many more countries around the world than iPhone 4 did, and importantly -- in the US it's now $99 on AT&T contract.

Let that sink in for a moment. A couple weeks ago iPhone 3GS was still one of the best smartphones on the market. Since making it's debut in June 2009 (when we reviewed the original), it's stood the test of time against the Palm Pre, BlackBerry Storm 2, Motorola Droid, Google Nexus One, Palm Pre Plus, HTC Droid Incredible, and Evo 4G. Sure, other phones began pulling ahead in terms of raw specs and feature sets, but iPhone 3GS maintained its edge through a combination of overall elegance, usability, and ecosystem.

The only other thing that's changed between then and now -- aside from the price drop and reduction of storage that came with it is -- the arrival of iPhone 4.

For many people who want an iPhone, iPhone 4 will be the easy choice. But just like last year when Apple dropped the iPhone 3G to $99, it's not the only choice.

Total cost of ownership (TCO -- what you pay including the phone and the carrier contract) be damned, some people want a budget smartphone. Some people want to walk into the store, drop not a penny more than $99, and walk out with an iPhone. This year, those people can do just that and what they're leaving with is not only an iPhone 3GS, but an iPhone 3GS running iOS 4.

And that's worth a review.

UPDATED: iTunes accounts being hacked, used to cheat App Store?

It looks like there's been a sharp rise in iTunes accounts being hacked. We don't have any solid information on this yet, but when it comes to security TiPb believes in warning first, worrying about the details later. Engadget points to a link between the hacks and the rise in popularity of some Vietnamese book apps. Sounds crazy, but it's absolutely not funny:

iPad at Work: Elementary school teacher

iPad at Work: Elementary school teacher

How does an elementary school teacher use her iPad to get the job done and what iPad apps help get her through her day? TiPb’s iPad at work contest aims to bring you just such slices of the iPad life. Here’s Courtfrogger's answer and as a small token of thanks we’re sending her a $20 iTunes gift certificate. If you want to see your name up on the TiPb home page and get a gift certificate all your own, head on over to the TiPb iPad Forum and share your story now!

The iPad has added another dimension to my classroom! I teach music, English and theatre at a very small public k-12 school. I use the iPad for lots of different things in the classroom, at meetings and at play rehearsals. For my youngest students, who sometimes just need to dance, I use Pandora. I can just type in "Tito Puente", for example, and get unlimited Latin jazz that keeps them moving and very happy.

Frash: Android Flash ported to iPad

Frash: Android Flash ported to iPad

Frash is an effort to take Android's Flash implementation and get it working on an iPad, Jailbreak style. Brought to you by comex, the mind behind the Spirit Jailbreak, it follows up on his efforts to get Flash up on iPhone and iPod touch. How's it look? Check the video after the break.

Frash is a port of the Adobe Flash runtime for Android to the iPhone, using a compatibility layer, by comex ( http://twitter.com/comex ). Frash can currently run most Flash programs natively in the MobileSafari browser. Frash currently only runs on the iPad, but support for other devices (3GS+ only due to technical restrictions) is planned, as well as support for iOS 4.

A release is planned for when Frash is stable. Developers are welcome to join the effort at http://github.com/comex/frash – fork it and send a pull request with your patches.
