UPDATED: White iPhone 4 in the wild, when will they be in the stores?

There have always been a few white iPhone 4 in the wild, Apple employees in Cupertino the likely suspects, or high profile celebrity friends like Stephen Fry, or even low-profile friends far from the spotlight. Some have been caught on camera, some have been sent in as quiet tips. The only thing that hasn't been seen is the white iPhone 4 generally available for sale online or in stores.

FaceTime: Group video chats and Middle-East carrier spats?

FaceTime: Group video chats and Middle-East carrier spats?

A couple of interesting FaceTime tidbits this weekend as it looks like group video chats might be available in the future, but only on iPod touch in the Middle-East.

First up, while FaceTime is still missing from certain Middle-Eastern iPhone 4 carriers, it appears to be working fine on iPod touch (2010). So it's not a government restriction, which just leaves the carriers asking for it to be removed, or Apple worrying about the carriers and pre-emptively removing it. This begs the question, just what's going on?

Next up, Jailbreakers have struck again and found the following string in iOS firmware:

HDMI adapter coming for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad?

HDMI adapter coming for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad?

Noosy, an accessory maker based out of China, has posted an HDMI adapter for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on their website. This would allow iOS device owners to output 720p video directly to the HDMI inputs on their HDTVs, instead of using the $50 Apple component A/V cables.

What remains to be seen is how it will handle copy protected material, which requires HDCP and has been a source of considerable frustration for users of Apple's VGA adapter.

They have yet to announce an availability date or pricing at this time but this sure looks to be an exciting new product. I for one will be ordering as soon as it is available! What about you?

Friday Fun Video: iPhone band performs on NY Subway

Friday Fun Video: iPhone band performs on NY Subway

New York band Atomic Tom had their instruments stolen, so they rocked out with their back-up instruments - their iPhones! Each member of the band used an app on their iPhone to play a different part (drums, guitar, bass, keyboard, vocals). They gave a great performance on the New York subway; passengers can be seen bobbing their heads and getting into the music. This is the kind of thing I would love to see in person!

Video after the break!

How will Apple make the MacBook Air relevant in a post-iPad world?

Rumors strongly suggest Apple's Back to the Mac October event will feature the introduction of an all-new, perhaps all-different MacBook air, the first in a post-iPad world. And that has got me thinking -- how does Apple still keep it relevant?

The New York Times for iPad gets update, becomes really good

The New York Times has released a substantial update to their iPad newspaper reading app. The app -- in a few words -- is orders of magnitude better than the previous iPad offerings from NYTimes. Forbes reports:

"The New York Times has finally unveiled the iPad app everyone knew was coming, the one that gives readers full access to the entire paper. It replaces the “Editor’s Choice” app, a truncated offering that Apple boss Steve Jobs reportedly hated."

Costco pulling iPod, iPhone, everything Apple from shelves

Well it looks like that tip we got last week about Costco pulling iPod and everything Apple from their US Stores, and iPhone as well from their Canadian stores is now getting confirmed around the web.

The story goes an emergency conference call was set up to inform staff in both the warehouse proper and the mobile sales kiosk that all Apple products, accessories, etc. were being pulled.

PCalc 2.3 now available for iPhone, iPad [Give away]

PCalc 2.3 now available for iPhone, iPad [Give away]

PCalc, one of our favorite iPhone and iPad calculator apps (see Leanna's PCalc review), has just hit version 2.3, and in celebration the developer has very kindly offered us a bunch of promo codes to give away. To you. But first things first:

This free update has many improvements, but the key one is taking advantage of the additional screen space on the iPad. You can now permanently show the paper tape, RPN stack, and memories onscreen in a new sidebar area. This was the number one requested feature from iPad users, and we're happy to be able to add it now.

The tape, stack, and memories have had a complete overhaul for the iPhone and iPod touch too, and are now easier to read across all devices, appropriately themed, and with enhanced email support.

PCalc is distributed as a universal app - one purchase will work on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. No need to buy a separate "HD" version. It requires an iPhone or an iPod touch running OS 3.0 or later, or an iPad running OS 3.2 or later.

Give away after the break!
