Apple investigating iPhone issues with Monster-branded headphones

Apple investigating iPhone issues with Monster-branded headphones

It appears as if Apple is looking into an issue between the iPhone/iPod and Monster brand headphones. According to an anonymous tipster who contacted Engadget, Apple has informed their customer service workers of issues that are occurring between Monster headphones that utilize integrated microphones and controls.

The rumored memo to employees reads as follow:

Several Monster headphone models using Apple's Remote and Mic technology do not meet Apple's technical specifications. These headphones use conductive flanges, which can result in electrical shorts that can cause an iPod or iPhone to pause and play erratically. Customers may not be aware that the issue is caused by the headphones and may believe that the iPod or iPhone is defective instead. There are no known safety concerns and no known risk of damage to the iPod/iPhone or headphones.

Symptoms of the issue are random pauses and playing and skipping forward or backwards of tracks. There is a list after the break which indicates the affected models (the current model Apple sells in their retail stores is not listed).

Are you having this issue with your Monster headphones? Let us know your take on this apparent problem in the comments below.

Beginner tip: How to quickly type domain suffixes on iPhone and iPad

Beginner tip: How to quickly type domain suffixes on iPhone and iPad

Have you ever wondered how to quickly type a domain suffix on the iPhone or iPad? The iPhone and iPad keyboard are software, not hardware, so they can re-configure themselves to suit whatever task you're doing at the moment. When you're in Safari or Mail, that can often mean entering a website or email address such as "example.com". To help make things faster, the keyboard gives you a special ".com" key so you can just tap it and save yourself a few precious moments. (Hey, they all add up!). But what if you don't want ".com" but a different domain suffix? What if you want ".net" instead? Simple:

Redsn0w (0.9.6 Beta2) updated to allow Custom IPSW installation with Windows

Redsn0w -- the lightweight, multi-platform jailbreaking, unlocking and customizing tool for the iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 1G, iPod touch 2G, and iPod touch 3G -- has been updated to 0.9.6 Beta2, which allows Custom IPSW installation with Windows. Missing from this update is iPad and AppleTV support, which is currently supported by pwnagetool for OSX, but word is that chpwn is working on a windows version of pwnagetool.

Redsn0w can be used to install custom IPSWs that will keep your baseband firmware from updating and allowing you to unlock with ultrasn0w. Redsn0w works by putting your device into a special DFU mode which is required for installation of custom IPSWs.

Win an iPad from Waze and TiPb!

23

Win an iPad from Waze and TiPb!

Between now and November 10th, we're partnering with Waze to give away an iPad (or a Galaxy Tab if you're feeling Android-y). Here's how it works:

  1. Download and install Waze from the App Store
  2. Drive around with Waze and collect "Road Goodies" - which basically just means drive over the TiPb logos as you move about your city. As you can see above, they are *everywhere*.
  3. It's a competition between iPhone users, Android users, and BlackBerry users - which is to say you're up against the kids from Android Central and CrackBerry.com. Whichever site whose users collect the most Road Goodies will win and be able to give a tablet away to one of their users - selected randomly from amongst the top 25 collectors. Remember - you only get credit for driving over the iPhone icons.
  4. That's it! Use Waze, collect Road Goodies, and stick it to those Android and BlackBerry users while automatically getting a chance to win an iPad or Tab

What's Waze, then? It's a free social mapping tool: you can get directions, find out where the traffic is, ping other users, and generally find your way around while helping other Waze users get better location and traffic information. Check out the full details on the Waze Blog and check out the demo after the break to see a bit more about how Waze works.

iPhone DST alarm clock bug hits Europe

iPhone DST alarm clock bug hits Europe

Remember that annoying DST bug that was affecting Australian iPhone users' alarm clocks? Well, now it's Europe's turn. The switch from Daylight Saving Time to Standard time happened last night and now many European iPhone users woke up late this morning.

Even though the iPhones are correctly changing the clock time, recurring alarms are not recognizing it. What's even stranger, is that not all alarms are affected. If the alarm is set for "every day" or "never", then the alarm will go off at the correct time.
