iPhone 3G in the US and UK: 2 Weeks Later

iPhone 3G in the US and UK: 2 Weeks Later

It's been two weeks since the July 11th, 22 nation launch. Do you know where your iPhone 3G is? Sadly, for many, the answer is still "backordered" if not "out-of-stock". But don't worry, your always customer conscious and perennially consumer focused mobile cell provider wants to make sure you know that they know that you're feeling some pain. And they want to assure you they're doing everything they can to get your money you your shiny new iPhone 3G.

Lightning Review: Midomi

Lightning Review: Midomi

Today's Lightning Review comes from FoilTape, a review of Midomi, free on iTunes. Most people have been raving about Shazam for identifying music, but Midomi seems to work better with humming and the like. Let's see what FoilTape thinks!

Midomi calls itself "the ultimate search and discovery." It's a FREE, cool and engaging app that definitely has scored 'wow' points with me. Midomi is a song recognition program that you can sing to, hum to, talk to, or type to. You can even hold your iPhone up to your car stereo to capture the sound. Midomi then searches its database and tries to decipher your best karaoke attempt and gives back likely matches.

iPhone 2.1 Rumor: Cut/Copy/Paste Cometh?!

iPhone 2.1 Rumor: Cut/Copy/Paste Cometh?!

Last night Apple began seeding iPhone firmware 2.1 and SDK Beta 1 to registered developer program members (those who paid the $99 fee and were accepted, and have App Store uploading privileged's). Word came in early about new features in CoreLocation and Notification Server APIs. Now Engadget is adding the nigh-mythical holy grail of basic smartphone functionality to the list of maybes: Cut, Copy, and Paste!

Installer.app for 2.0 is Coming Soon

Installer.app for 2.0 is Coming Soon

Installer.app, the app store before that other app store, is coming back for firmware 2.0 and being re-fashioned as Installer 4. Currently, jailbroken 2.0 iPhones are using Cydia as their main app pipeline but when Installer 4 is released, well, they'll likely play nice with one another and especially nice with that other app store.

The RiP Dev Blog has a lot of complicated, programmer's type language describing the updates for Installer 4.0 so I'll try to translate to more understandable, layman's terms: It's going to be faster, safer, and more integrated. Bang.

iPhone 2.1 Beta 1: GPS Boost + Notification Server APIs

iPhone 2.1 Beta 1: GPS Boost + Notification Server APIs

Apple has reportedly seeded an early beta of firmware 2.1 (5f90) and a new and improved SDK to developers. Among the changes, CoreLocation (which covers GPS and other location-aware services) gains direction and speed tracking abilities (leading to a fresh round of turn-by-turn speculation, 'natch), and API's for the Notification Server that, come September, will be used in-lieu of background multitasking to push alert badges and sounds to Apps (like Instant Messages, Tweets, etc.). Given how MobileMe is doing with Push, that one may prove interesting...

iPhone Wins International Design Excellence Awards

Jonathan Ive, me thinks you're going to need a bigger mantle, what with all the awards Apple's VP of Design keeps taking home!

This time it's the IDEA (International Design Excellence Awards) handed out by BusinessWeek. In addition to the Gold prize for the original iPhone 2G, Apple also received Gold IDEA's for the MacBook Air and Bluetooth Keyboard, and a Silver for the redesigned iMac. These four -- the most of any company this year -- brings Apple's lifetime IDEA total to 13.

Congratulations!

Apple Posts New iPhone 3G Ads

Apple Posts New iPhone 3G Ads

Apple has posted 3 new iPhone 3G ads. We've been seeing them on TV here and there (fast-forward-TiVo-style), but it's nice to see that Apple's posted them fully. Two of them focus on 3G speeds (with a tiny, gray "3G not available in all areas" at the end) and the third talks about "work" without specifically mentioning that it's discussion Exchange support. All in all, they're not all that compelling, truth be told, but "Unslow" at least falls in the iPhone commercial tradition of advertising-through-education: "What exactly is 3G?" It's fast, baby. It's also apparently GPS too, though again Apple doesn't specifically drop that apparently unhip series of letters in the commercial.

Tip o' the Week: Keyboard Shortcuts

It took a little while for me to get used to the iPhone's "soft" keyboard -- large hands + tiny keyboard = baby elephant playing piano.  Even though I've become rather proficient with the iPhone's keyboard, I'm always on the prowl for anything that will help with my speed and accuracy.  This week's Tip is all about some keyboard shortcuts, brought to you by and with special thanks to George by way of Adam Pash's article at lifehacker.com.  Keep reading for some helpful keyboard Tips (and check out Adam's article for yourself)!
