iPhone Officially Unlocked, Geeks Swoon in Rapture

What are you doing, Dave?

I think we should talk this over before you do something rash.

Why don't you take a stress pill and we can sit down and talk about it.

Dave?

You can begin popping corks off Champaign bottles and dance through the streets in your underpants. This is the moment that many folks have waited for.

In case you've been living under a rock this morning the internet is aflutter with news that iPhone has now finally unlocked, using an $80 tool called Turbo SIM card.

The feat is said to be 100% effective, meaning that it unlocks all of iPhones features and functions, allowing users to make and receive calls, SMS, access GPRS readio (data), browse the web, send email, download porn, over any GSM network. Viola!

Lights Off, The First Native iPhone Game, The Shot Heard Round the World

Oh Apple, how ever did you think you could keep developers from breaking down iPhone's backdoor. Hmm? Not only have developers managed to find their way inside, knocking over lamps as they stumble in the dark, but one developer created a rather illuminating piece of software. meniacal laugh

Lights Off is the first, that we know of, "unofficial" game for iPhone. The first of many perhaps. The goal of this simple puzzle game is to switch off all the little blinking lights in order to advance levels. Installing this code isn't for the faint of heart. It involves a bit of rubber chicken swinging and poking through iPhone's hidden file system. Full instructions are on the site.

AdMob Makes Web Advertising Useful

AdMob offers a new spin on web advertising. Rather than a generic text link, AdMob links aggregate targeted content advertisements and generate relevant results that tie into services like Google Maps, directing iPhone users to services they might wish to exploit.

Make sense? No? I don't understand what I just said either. So just watch the video above and let the guys from AdMob explain. I need a nap.

AT&T Sends 300-page iPhone Bill To Customer, Paper Industry Celebrates

Justine Ezarik from Tasty Blog Snack got an unexpected surprise in the mail today - her first phone bill from AT&T, after purchasing an iPhone and switching carriers. Nothing unusual about that, except that it arrived in a box (that would be my first clue that something terribly wrong had occurred at AT&T's billing department), not an envelope, and...oh yeah...it's 300 freaking pages long!

DIY Two-way Video Conferencing for iPhone, Stunned Look Not Included

Some clever Modders have found a novel approach to creating a working two-way video conferencing solution into iPhone. With a little IP voodoo and huckleberry mirror, twin brothers Glen and Ken Aspeslagh found a way to successfully pull off a live video conference, over the web, by streaming compressed video to a special server which then streams the video to a recipient iPhone.

You can read more about this bit of hackery after the jump. I'm giving these guys my coveted "I want to have your children" award for sheer brilliance.

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?

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.
