Deep Red iPhone Coming?

Deep Red iPhone Coming?

Engadget reports that a deep red version of the iPhone is in the works. The report lists a 4GB version available in deep red, but I'll believe a deep red 4GB iPhone when I see it. The best reason that Apple would make a red iPhone is to be part of the PRODUCT (RED) charity for AIDS in Africa, which Apple has done with iPods for quite a while now.

iPhone Owners: Likely Once Treo Owners

iPhone Owners: Likely Once Treo Owners


figure 1: The Orange Treo 680 is what I used before I got an iPhone. This and a featurephone, actually, for when I wanted to take a non-useless picture of something. I used both AT&T and T-Mobile.

<

p>Let me put on my Carnac the Magnificent hat and guess that you were on T-Mobile too. There's an interesting survey report done by the NPD group recently that caught my eye, specifically because it names Treos. I still have love for Treos, but I'm off the wagon in terms of using one regularly at least until their Linux OS ships. But here are the fact nuggets that they report:

iPhone and iPod Touch Jailbreaks for 1.1.1

iPhone and iPod Touch Jailbreaks for 1.1.1

The process for jailbreaking an iPhone manually is pretty involved; Apple's process of securing the iPhone and iPod Touch have made the barrier to entry for installing 3rd party applications on an iPhone much tougher. If you're looking to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod touch in the hopes of installing other applications or non-Apple-sanctioned ringtones, however, there are now some easier ways to do it.

Saucepans and Stew Pots: Study Says Consumers Ditched Treos for iPhones. Sorry, Palm

Saucepans and Stew Pots: Study Says Consumers Ditched Treos for iPhones. Sorry, Palm

Alas, poor Palm. You just can't seem to get a break these days, can you? First came that whole embarrassing Foleo fiasco (or Foolio as I like to call it), an ordeal not to be repeated. Then your long overdue Palm OS replacement gets pushed back, twice, not to appear for another 18 months. Now comes this latest report, certain to deliver yet another vigorous blow to the nuts.

Jailbreak: INdependance Updated, Now Supports Firmware 1.1.1 *buries head in shame*

Jailbreak: INdependance Updated, Now Supports Firmware 1.1.1 *buries head in shame*

INdependance, the highly popular jailbreak utility for iPhone, has been updated to include support for the firmware release whose name we dare not speak (1.1.1, there I said it).

Note Jailbreaking involves bypassing the iPhone's locked software, enabling installation of third party software, and should not be confused with the process of SIM unlocking. These are two different animals entirely.

Download it now, if you dare. Be afraid.

Apple Quietly Responding to Amazon MP3?

Apple Quietly Responding to Amazon MP3?

Apple has started putting 99¢ DRM-free tracks on sale in iTunes. Usually, DRM free tracks are only available as purchases from iTunes plus and cost $1.29. Assuming this trend continues, I'm glad to see Apple iTunes moving aggressively against Amazon MP3.

Whither iPhone in Canada?

Whither iPhone in Canada?


The iPhone faces additional legal issues in Canada before it can make its way onto Rogers. It appears that a plucky little Ontarian telecom named Comwave wants Apple to pony up cash before Apple can use the iPhone trademark. Comwave is currently using the iPhone trademark for VOIP phones and services. The trademark brouhaha is currently playing its way out in CIPO, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. Also, there's currently no public deal with Rogers to carry the iPhone, that could be another stumbling block. Apple probably has to do this dance in every country where they want to sell the iPhone.

iPhone Headphones May Kill The Joy of Sex and Cause Sterility. Bug or Feature?

iPhone users rocking out to their favorite tunes may damage more than their hearing, if new research published by Greenpeace has any basis in fact. The report claims that iPhone's included headphones contain dangerous levels of toxic chemicals that may be harmful to reproductive organs, or "happy zone" for you boys and girls under the age of twelve.

iPhone Hacking Update

iPhone Hacking Update

The iPhone hacking community has been hard at work recently, and there are a lot of updates to sort through. First off, the iPhone ramdisks have been decrypted, and the same goes for the iPod Touch. This means that programmers can look at the update for both processors and sort through exactly what Apple is doing with their software. It should mean that free unlocks for the iPhone 1.1.1 firmware should be on the way shortly, and anyone that wants to install applications on their iPod Touch shouldn't have long to wait either.
