White Trash Your iPhone, With ColorWare

What better way to improve the aesthetics of the worlds most elegant mobile phone than paying someone $150 to paint it green. Yep, that's what I'd do.

Dr. Macenstein shows off his newly pimped out iPhone, painted green with envy, courtesy of ColorWare. This service has been around for quite some time, and has become fairly popular with modders. For a few hundred bucks, ColorWare will paint just about anything but children and small pets.

You can see more photos of the good doctor's customized iPhone after the jump. Visit ColorWare if this sort of thing interests you. Then check yourself into the nearest mental health facility.

Apple Runs Two New iPhone TV Ads

Apple Runs Two New iPhone TV Ads

Apple has posted two new TV commercials, the sixth and seventh in the series, if you keep track of them as they go by. Number six, entitled "Instead", focuses on the iPhone's digital music capabilities, highlighting the fact that iPhone eliminates the need to carry two devices (iPod + phone).

The seventh ad, titled "Amazing", essentially recaps all the wondrous things iPhone can do, like browse the internet for DRM cracks, look at porn, take photos of your spouse cheating on you, etc.

You can view both ads on Apple's website now.

Man Undergoes Surgery to Better Manipulate His iPhone

Man Undergoes Surgery to Better Manipulate His iPhone

28 year old Thomas Martel of Bonnie Brae, Colorado, found manipulating his iPhone to be difficult thanks to his big fat thumbs always getting in the way. His options were to upgrade to a device with larger buttons, or chop off his thumbs. The choice was obvious - chop off the thumbs, of course. Well not quite.

Martel underwent a relatively new procedure, called "Whittling", that involves filing down bone and reconstructing muscles and fingertip, creating leaner thumbs that are less bulbous in form.

Breaking: Apple to Bless iPhone with Games?

Breaking: Apple to Bless iPhone with Games?

Get your gaming finger ready (no, not THAT one), iPhone fanboys. Word on the street says Apple is prepping the iPhone for gaming support. This coming from DownloadSquad in the UK, while perusing the latest update to iTunes looking for hidden gold, uncovered these two curious strings buried in the code...

/* ===== iPhone Game Item Strings ===== */ "4329.001" = "Are you sure you want to remove the selected game from your iPhone?"; "4329.002" = "Are you sure you want to remove the selected games from your iPhone?";

Apple Acknowledges Problems with iPhone's Touchscreen, Offers Repair

Apple Acknowledges Problems with iPhone's Touchscreen, Offers Repair

A growing number of iPhone users have reported what could be a serious manufacturing flaw affecting some units. After an indeterminate period of use the touchscreen may lose sensitivity in specific locations on the screen. These "dead spots" will be no longer respond to user input. For a device that depends entirely on touch input for manipulation...this isn't good.

Fortunately Apple is listening, and is now offering repairs for anyone experiencing this problem. Unfortunately the company seems intent on enforcing its $29 rental fee for loaner iPhones, while your device is in the shop. Several readers have reported they managed to negotiate a waiver, but I am not satisfied with this scheme. Negotiation should be unnecessary when the problem is a manufacturing flaw.

iPhone Will Kill WAP, Says PC Mag

iPhone Will Kill WAP, Says PC Mag

Jamie Lendino of PC Mag logs his thoughts on how iPhone might be the catalyst that brings about the demise of what we know as the "Mobile internet". I thought WAP was already dead? Not dead perhaps, but its zombified corpse crawls upon the ground, with flies and maggots feeding upon its rotting flesh.

The assertion in this story is that, unlike browsers found on Smartphones and feature phones, Safari renders real webpages like the desktop browser that it is, not the pipsqueak micro webpages you get on those other devices. Ergo, iPhone makes all that irrelevant.

First Documented iPhone Injury Leaves Man With Huge Back Ache

First Documented iPhone Injury Leaves Man With Huge Back Ache

Remember all those horrific injury stories we heard when the Nintendo Wii first began arriving in homes, with flying Wii remotes carving a path of devastation and injury to humans and their canine friends? Apparently iPhone is next product in line to join the proud pantheon of killer consumer devices.

Travis Gohr learned a valuable lesson while excercising - treadmills and iPhones don't mix. He chronicles the sad sequences of events that led to his folly.

Mundu IM: iPhone Edition, Chat Till Your Thumbs Bleed

Mundu IM: iPhone Edition, Chat Till Your Thumbs Bleed

Mundu has a long pedigree in the world of business-class mobile instant messaging software. I have used their Mobile Messenger client on PalmOS and Windows Mobile - it works like magic. So it didn't take long for their developers to show some iPhone love.

The company has announced a web based service that fully supports iPhone, via Safari of course (we've heard this line before). To access the web client simply point your iPhone to iphone.mundu.com. Login to any existing IM accounts (Yahoo, Gtalk, AIM, or Windows Live Messenger protocols supported), and text your way to repetitive stress injury.

The service is in beta, so don't look surprised when Safari chokes and drops you back to the homescreen.

Browser Cagematch: BlackBerry, Palm, Windows Mobile Vs. iPhone

Browser Cagematch: BlackBerry, Palm, Windows Mobile Vs. iPhone

InfoWorld pits three reigning Smartphones against the iPhone, comparing the browser experience of each platform. The verdict: Safari wins. Color me shocked.

This was a foregone conclusion. Mobile web browsers are simply crap compared to iPhone. I speak from experience as a Smartphone aficionado, having used every platform under the sun. None of the devices referenced in this article delivers even a remotely comparable experience to Safari.

iPhone includes a real web browser - a desktop web browser. Not the toy browsers you'll find on PalmOS, Blackberry or Windows Mobile, that render webpages through a paper shredder, producing a mangled stack of images and text.

Gizmodo Tests NES Emulator for iPhone, Verdict: Good But Not Great

Those crack heads at Gizmodo have taken a close look at the recently released NES emulator for iPhone, which promises to be a credible gaming environment...once it bakes a bit longer that is. Right now the project remains in the early stage of development and lacks even some rudimentary functionality - audio support being one.

Jesus Diaz calls it "A good start and a good promise of things to come." Oh really? But will it blend?

Rant: Apple...Fix Your F*$k!^G Mail App!

You know the old saying "When one door closes, another one opens"? Well in Apple's case the reverse sometimes proves to be true. Take for example the recently release iPhone update which, among other things, supposedly includes several bug fixes. Unfortunately it also introduces a few bugs as well, or at least that is the case with Mail.
