Trapster 4.0 [Free - iTunes link] adds new features to the ticket-avoiding app:

  • Patrol, which highlights recently driven roads so you know the data is fresh.

Haiti Earthquake Survivor Uses iPhone App as Survival Tool

Haiti Earthquake Survivor Uses iPhone App as Survival Tool

Apple's iPhone, along with the help of a medical application, has saved at least one life in the tragic Haiti earthquake. American film maker, Dan Woolley, found himself trapped in rubble when the Haitian earthquake struck, injuring his head and leg. With no other place to turn he used his trusty iPhone along with help from a unknown first-aid medical application. The app helped him diagnose his broken foot, make a tourniquet for his leg, and described the best way to bandage his head to stop the bleeding. He even set the alarm clock to go off every 20 minutes to make sure he stayed awake and alert.

65 hours later he was rescued.

Star Wars Opening Recreated in HTML, CSS!

Star Wars Opening Recreated in HTML, CSS!

Speaking of Daring Fireball links and HTML5, Guillermo Esteves has re-created the opening crawl from the original Star Wars using only web-based technologies. It currently runs exclusively on the bleeding-edge WebKit nightly builds, Safari for OS X Snow Leopard... and on the built-in iPhone Safari (though it doesn't look as polished).

That's right. No Chrome anything, including Android 2.1. No Palm webOS browser. That it works on the iPhone's and iPod touch's MobileSafari... is kind of crazy considering it hasn't been updated since iPhone 3.1.2 back on Oct. 8. Just goes to show how seriously Apple is pushing the web on the iPhone.

So, yeah, words moving away into perspective in your browser, but this is without QuickTime or Flash or anything to strain your bandwidth or burn your battery. Very nice.

Official Sega Genisis Emulator for iPhone Coming Soon

Sometime in February you can expect to see the emulator application packaged with Space Harrier II free of charge. Then, with the use of Apple's in-app purchasing, you will be able to add the following titles.

WSJ: Apple iTablet to do for Newspapers, Magazine, Books, What iPod did for Music

When the Wall Street Journal cites sources and talks Apple, it's usually part reporting, part expectation setting, and if this is the latter, than exactly what Steve Jobs plans the iTablet to do for print media -- newspapers, magazines, and books -- is no less than what he did for music on the iPod. Digital revolution much?
