Tip o' the Week: Sync iPhone on Two Computers

Tip o' the Week: Sync iPhone on Two Computers

I don't know if you have tried this (I have), but if you attempt to sync your iPhone with any computer other than the one you originally synced with your iPhone, you will receive a warning that your iPhone is "synced with another iTunes library."  Your only choice at this point is to "Cancel" the operation or "Erase and Sync" because your iPhone can only be synced to one iTunes library at a time.  Or CAN it?

Thanks to a set of most excellent instructions from the Shiny Things blog of Andrew Grant located here, you can sync your iPhone with one or more additional computers. Read on to learn more!

Friday Fun Rumor: 3D Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation for iPhone Post 2.2?

Friday Fun Rumor: 3D Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation for iPhone Post 2.2?

Huge rumor. No corroboration. Not journalism. Posting this from a first time, antonymous tipster and if it doesn't pan out... well... I'll be boiled in clam chowder eventually anyway... But it's Friday and this is FUN. Of course, Dieter already told us about the complicated legal quagmire surrounding turn-by-turn GPS, but dagnabit, we wants it!

Android vs. iPhone: Which Does a Better Job Syncing to the Cloud?

Android vs. iPhone: Which Does a Better Job Syncing to the Cloud?

The Reviews of the Android G1 Phone on T-Mobile are out and the verdicts are generally as follows: Partly Cloudy1, but forecasting big things to come. We're not going to try to hit every point just yet, but there's one point where this "Sidekick for Grownups" has what appears to be a real advantage over everybody else: dead-simple cloud setup.

So compared to the iPhone, just how good is the setup on the G1? The answer is: Depends on whether or not you're a Gmail type of person.

Yeah, "depends" isn't exactly a clear answer, so follow us after the break for a bit more on whether the G1 is PIM Push Paradise compared to MobileMe's Mechanized Movement of information.

(1Sorry, could help myself with that pun)

Steve Speaks: It's Not Easy Being Greener

Steve Speaks: It's Not Easy Being Greener

Because of Apple's high media profile, Greenpeace likes to have a little fun with them. Nothing gets headlines like bashing Apple in the tech industry, especially if you're hippie enough to make Steve Jobs seem more like Stephen Colbert. With Al Gore on their board, however, it's probably safe to say Apple has to at least appear to be one of the more -- if not most -- environmentally friendly major tech company in the US. Case in point, and unprecedented second open letter from Steve Jobs:

How To: Tether your Laptop with an iPhone and PdaNet

How To: Tether your Laptop with an iPhone and PdaNet

PdaNet has been hailed as the best reason to Jailbreak your iPhone. Why? Because it sets your iPhone up as a WiFi router that you can easily connect to with your laptop. This setup is ideal for a lot of users for a few reason:

  1. It's dead-simple to set up, as it doesn't require any weird software or modem configuration on your laptop
  2. Since the iPhone becomes a simple WiFi router, there are no blocked ports. Unlike NetShare, PdaNet is not a 'SOCKS proxy,' so you can use any internet protocol (like iChat or AIM) and not have to worry about whether or not it will work.
  3. Although you'd take a big old hit on speed, you could theoretically share your internet connection with several computers.

There is one major caveat you need to be aware of with PdaNet, however. The Terms of Service on the standard AT&T iPhone contract and also on their standard Data Plans do not allow you to tether. Most people simply ignore this and go ahead and tether anyway -- being careful not to overdo it to prevent AT&T from hitting them with extra fees or even a cancellation. If that doesn't worry you, read on for a full how to on getting PdaNet setup to tether to your Laptop!

Google Android iClones iPhone App Store Kill Switch!

Google Android iClones iPhone App Store Kill Switch!

Title says it all, and you know what? Good for Google. While the holier-than-geek community criticizes Apple's admittedly adamantium grip on the iPhone App Store while raving about the "open platform" of Google's Android, the harsh realities of internet existence -- including malicious code and apps -- means that no playground can be entirely free of adult supervision, lest it quickly degenerate into Lord of the Flies land. Says Computerworld (via Macrumors):

Blog vs. Blog: Is Steve Leaving Apple? Giz Says Yes! DF Says Nope!

Blog vs. Blog: Is Steve Leaving Apple? Giz Says Yes! DF Says Nope!

During Tuesday's "Spotlight on Notebooks" Keynote, Steve Jobs wasn't the only jean-and-dark-shirt uniformed Apple exec on stage. COO Time Cook took an unusual turn, discussing Mac business. SVP of Design, Jonathan Ive, an even more unusual presence in front of the audience, introduced the new "brick" unibody concept. And Marketing VP Phil Schiller -- who's no stranger to Keynotes -- took part in the Q&A at the end.

It wasn't all Steve, all the time.

TiPb AT WORK To Do/Task List Showdown: Things vs Appigo Todo

TiPb AT WORK To Do/Task List Showdown: Things vs Appigo Todo

[This is a TiPb AT WORK App vs. App Review! Last week, it was the Instant Messenger Showdown, with BeeJiveIM squeaking out the victory. But which blog commenter won a copy of the winning IM App? mr. Hi-Definition Congratulations!

This week, the TiPb iPhone Forums voted on their favorite Task/To Do Apps, we took the top two, and now they're going head-to-head. But wait -- there's more! One of the forum voters has already won a copy of the winning App... Congrats coreymol! Want another chance to win? COMMENT BELOW! and make sure you leave a valid email address in the comment form -- it won't be made public, but it will be used to contact you if you win! Check out the full contest details, then grab your iPhone and get ready to get things done -- the TiPb AT WORK Task/Do To Showdown is on!]

I use my iPhone all the time. At work or play, it completes me. I have a few gripes (no sense beating the cut/copy/paste dead horse) - there are some glaring omissions that make it difficult for people to take the iPhone seriously for business or just everyday productivity.

Some kind of sync-able task or to-do list is such a basic feature, and fortunately, the advent of 3rd party apps have made it possible for developers to provide a plethora of apps to remedy this deficiency. The two apps that you folks in the forum picked for this TiPb AT WORK smackdown is Things and Appigo's Todo. Users have given them both a 4-star rating in the App Store and, quite honestly, it's a VERY close call to me.

Which of these two get-er-done apps are the best? How do they stack up? Read on!

New iPhone Ad is a "Game Changer"

Major League Baseball's App for the iPhone has been in the news due to a price drop -- and the little controversy surrounding it's seasonal expiry -- as of late. Well, now Apple has thrown a huge spotlight onto it again, this time likely hoping to ride the playoff popularity wave.

For baseball fans who want their fix when they want and where they want, the commercial gets it right: "game changer" indeed.
