Apple Announces iPhone Cthulhu

Apple surprised many by announcing a new version of the iPhone today, the iPhone Cthulhu. The new version of the iPhone sports an interface refined for the Elder Gods.

"While demand for the upcoming 3G model of the iPhone remains high, we decided that there's a much larger market in the Star Spawn segment," said Senior Vice President Phil Schiller in a press conference held at midnight on Tuesday. "The Great Old Ones crave not only souls and blood, but also a smartphone that's easily 5 millennia ahead of anything else out there. " Added Schiller "Please, get out of my mind now."

Read on for more details on the iPhone Cthulhu, including photos and a description of the all new tentacle-based interface!

Everything Old is New at RIM - Wait-a-Thon

Everything Old is New at RIM - Wait-a-Thon

Pop quiz, hotshot:

You're the top dog in smart phones with "push" email technology so killer people have likened it to crack. But last year a new kid showed up with a glitzy multi-touch interface and media to die for, and sucked all the buzz out of your room. What do you do? What. Do. You. Do?

If you answered, out innovate them, come up with next year's "it" device, you're correct. You're also clearly (and unfortunately) not the brain-trust at RIM.

Beta 1.2 is Dead! Long Live Beta 2.0!

Beta 1.2 is Dead! Long Live Beta 2.0!

According to Engadget, Apple is serving up (yet another?) new beta firmware, this one doing away with the (confusing?) 1.2.0 designation and lining up squarely behind Steve Jobs' announced 2.0 labeling.

Aside from some VPN, mail, and ActiveSync tweaks and re-org's, Engadget can't find much else aside from the shiny new version release, but as June gets closer, no doubt Apple's engineers will get busier!

iPWND - 2.0 Firmware Beta 2 Hacked (With Video)

iPWND - 2.0 Firmware Beta 2 Hacked (With Video)

JAR! The "Cat and Mouse Game" between the nasty pirates and the royal Cupertino navy seems to have shifted decidedly in the pirates favor, or so says Engadget:

Those crafty kids on the iPhone Dev Team have already hacked the 2.0 firmware, but now they're getting ready to release the oh-so-creatively-named PWNED tool, which takes iPhone hacking to the next level by patching the bootloader to let you load any firmware image you want -- even images not signed by Apple. That means custom patched firmware can now be loaded directly from iTunes, which simplifies the jailbreaking / unlocking process tremendously, and also means that a patched version of the 2.0 firmware is coming soon.

Video after the break!

Rumor: .Mac Coming to iPhone 2.0?

Rumor: .Mac Coming to iPhone 2.0?

No sooner did our own Chad Garette lay out the case for .Mac syncing via the iPhone, then iPhone Alley, (via TUAW), brings word that El Jobso might be doing just that:

In the just released SDK beta 2, iPhone Alley found a string within a preference bundle that reads: "Syncing with this Dot Mac account will turn off syncing for other Dot Mac accounts and delete any existing synced data." This suggests the possibility of wireless syncing for non-Exchange users.

This would be awesome additional functionality for both the iPhone and for .Mac. 2.0 really can't come fast enough.

Next, a potential sixth (6th!) launch for the mighty Europe, this time in the Netherlands:

Patents Pondered: Apple Poised to Free Your TV?

Patents Pondered: Apple Poised to Free Your TV?

You're out with a friend on Wednesday night and hear that, because of the "big game", the season finale of NBC's The Office will be airing later that same night instead of the next as usual.

Panic? Try to rush home? Call your mom and beg her to record it? Hope you can download it off the torrents without getting sued into oblivion?

Nope. You just whip out your trusty iPhone, touch your way through a simple, elegant interface and -- boom! -- EDGE/Wi-Fi sync a new recording schedule back to the DVR-equipped Apple TV in your living room.

When you get home, The Office is recorded and waiting to watch on the big screen. And if you're too tired to finish watching it, you can just shift the content right back to your iPhone (or MacBook Air, or any other iTunes savvy device) and watch it on your way to work the next day.

Sounds like magic, doesn't it? Not according to one of Apple's latest patent filings...

Web App Review: iCopy

Web App Review: iCopy

When I first heard of iCopy through fellow Phone Different writer Rene Ritchie, I thought, "Wow, what a great idea, I hope it works". When I installed the software, I was immediately skeptical due to the complexity of the steps involved. So, without saying too much more, let's dive right in!

To use iCopy is simple; install the JavaScript-based bookmarklet and you are good to go. To begin you simple tap the Copy/Paste bookmark in Safari on the iPhone. After doing this you are presented with three choice: Copy, Paste and Cancel.
