The Jailbreak and Unlock wizards behind the iPhone DevTeam are off to DEFCON 17, the security/hacking convention that juxtaposes Black Hat 2009, and have provided a set of tips to help those at the conferences (or anywhere really) avoid getting their iPhone hacked into. The tips are really targeted at Jailbroken iPhones, but some cross over to regular iPhone users as well.
To celebrate Apple restoring Promo Codes to all App Store apps, Airsource Ltd and Glasshouse Apps are teaming with TiPb to give away 5 free copies of Cellar [$2.99 - iTunes link], their portable, swipeable showcase of what's currently in your cellar or wine rack, and which also includes the Garage feature that lets you store wine that you've decided you might buy again.
The Financial Times is reporting that Apple may be in cahoots with the Big Music record labels, Sony, Warner, Universal, and EMI to create bonus-material laden Apps in an attempt to reignite interest in full album purchases among consumers. This project is said to be code named "cocktail" and would include:
a new interactive booklet, sleeve notes and other interactive features with music downloads
According to developers, Apple has reversed it's previous decision and will now allow Promo Codes to be generated for iTunes App Store apps rated 17+ -- which includes any application that embeds a browser or otherwise allows unfettered access to the internet.
Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch) related, they're fair game.
So who's on deck this week and what are our picks? Find out after the break!

The L.A. Times (via MacRumors) confirms what TiPb heard following the release of iPhone 3.1Beta 2 -- public APIs for information overlay of live video will allow "augmented reality" apps to make their way into the App Store.
