TiPb Birthday Bash: And the Unlocked ColorWare iPhone 3G Winner is...

Earlier this month, we celebrated TiPb's Birthday Bash, and as a giant thanks to you, our members, we spent nearly a week giving away iPhone accessories, promo codes for some of our favorite apps, and iTunes gift cards. We'll be highlighting some of the winners, runners-up, and otherwise awesome entrants this weekend, but for right now I think we'll just go ahead and announce the winner of our biggest grand-prize so far:

  • A factory unlocked 8GB iPhone 3G in your choice of 35 different color options courtesy of the awesome folks at ColorWare.

That's right. One of you is about to get your iPhone, your way. And we'll tell you who... after the break!

Okay, Who Gave Palm Pre Keys to the iTunes Sync Kingdom?!

Fortune scoop'let'ed the story: the Palm Pre syncs with iTunes. No, not like a dumb USB disk. Not even like a 3rd party-enabled BlackBerry on the PC. Somehow, when Jon Rubinstein joined Palm, someone at Apple forgot to frisk him for iTunes keys.

Our friends over at PreCentral.net, of course, are all over this:

US Networks, HD TV Shows Now Available via iTunes Canada!

Not sure when they -- finally -- flipped this switch, but this morning when I fired up iTunes I was greeted with a full on content party -- US TV productions from ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and Warner Brothers are now available for Canadians to download in both standard and high definition.

Prices are $3.49 for HD (which includes an SD copy for your iPhone or iPod) and/or $2.49 for SD all by its lonesome.

So, if you don't mind paying for a-la-carte programming a day later but sans commercials, loves you the HD option, and you live in the True North Strong and Free-ish, apparently this week is Canada Day come early!

Next Generation iPhone: Black Bezel, LCD Screen?

Next Generation iPhone: Black Bezel, LCD Screen?

ChinaOnTrade.com, which sells iPhone parts reportedly directly from the factory, has thrown up some images and ordering options for 3rd generation iPhone bevels and screens.

If they're to be believed, the iPhone loses its silvery-chrome outer ring for a black band (as previously rumored?) that seems to indicate Apple will be moving things around a tad -- functionally as well as cosmetically?

Bad news for OLED hopefuls, as Gizmodo says the purported screen is still LCD, though iLounge points out it's price is double that of the 3G screen ($73 vs. $35). Hmm...

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in, iFun.de for the catch, and BenM.at for the (translated) head's up!]

More pics after the break!

More Verizon iPhone Rumors... In Time for WWDC?!

There's been a lot of noise lately about Verizon and the iPhone. Sure, some could be wishful thinking. Some could be to manipulate the ongoing Apple/AT&T negotiations. But could there be anything more to it?

We've heard rumors that an iPhone nano/lite/mini could be coming, and coming to Verizon alongside an iPhone-esque iTablet/iPad.

Dear Google: Where's the iPhone's Push Gmail?!

Dear Google: Where's the iPhone's Push Gmail?!

Okay. Fine. Our bestest buddies over at PreCentral.net are crowing over the rumor-revelation that the Palm Pre will support "push" Gmail via IMAP IDLE [Wikipedia link]. Not as robust as BlackBerry or Microsoft ActiveSync, they say, but yarly enough. And good for them.

Of course Google's own mobile OS, Android, also enjoys push Gmail. Also fine and good and all that.

But where's ours?
