Group Offers $100,000 Bounty for Free Unlock Software

On the internet, no one can hear your bluff. A blog claims to be offering a $100,000 reward to anyone who can produce a free software unlock solution for iPhone, and deliver it by the chimes of midnight tonight. Of course, no information whatsoever is given to back the legitimacy of this claim, such as who its underwriters are so I'd wager this cash payment is coming from someone's HP deskjet printer. Nothing more than a single email address is available for correspondence, which doesn't instill confidence.

My favorite quote from the site, which gives good insight into the minds behind this project...

EA and PopCap Thinks iPhone's Got Game

Fanboys aren't the only ones wanting to install games on iPhone. Developers at Electronic Arts (EA) and PopCap, see iPhone as a viable gaming handheld and a potentially lucrative market. So much so in fact that the folks at PopCap aren't waiting for Apple to open its walled garden to developers. The popular maker of mobile game titles says iPhone is already on its roadmap for future game development, and has a few projects in the works. Andrew Stein, PopCap's director of mobile business development recently told Reuters...

ZunePhone Parody Lampoons Microsoft, Hits Right Where it Hurts...Below the Belt and Above the Wallet

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRKIDdIaFyE[/youtube]

Oh snap! This video has all the best qualities of human expression - mockery, sarcasm, ridicule, taunting...reminds me of middle school, minus the bully who stole my lunch money.

Take that, Microsoft...and Greg Johnson! I'll take back all that lunch money you stole from me in $50s and $100s.

Screen Smudge as Art Form, Express Yourself

Screen Smudge as Art Form, Express Yourself

After hours of active use, your iPhone's screen will become filled with more greasy fingerprints and smudges than the front doors of your local McDonalds. How can you see through all that film? Wipe if off? No, be creative. Express your inner artist. Let your fingers inspire you. Rub your iPhone's slippery glass surface in delicate strokes, forming shapes and contours. Create images and silhouettes from the deposited facial oil. Where others see a smudgy screen, I see the face of a clown.

Now spray Windex onto a sheet of paper towel, lightly dampened. Then clean your filthy screen, and get back to work. Stop wasting time.

Kent's Weekly Rant: Episode 2

Kent's Weekly Rant: Episode 2

On Tuesday Apple released a system update for iPhone that claims to have fixed a number of undisclosed bugs. Like nearly every other iJunkie I eagerly plunged into the installation process, anxious to learn what performance tweaks might await. My initial hope was the unrelenting Mail issue I lamented about had been fixed in this release, and I think some have. But not all.

A Fix for Flaky Touch Screen Behavior, Let My Fingers Guide You

A Fix for Flaky Touch Screen Behavior, Let My Fingers Guide You

So here I am fiddling with my iPhone, when a rare yet not entirely uncommon problem rears itself.

Every now and again my iPhone's touchscreen exhibits a rather strange behavior. When I tap to select a specific item in various applications, the touchscreen misidentifies my tap and executes it in a completely different area code. The device can remain in that state for five or more seconds. No matter how many times you tap on a specific item, something else is selected. Example...I tap on very first new email in my inbox to open it, and the very last email is selected instead. Sound familiar to you? Thought so.

Now Playing: iPhone Crushed by Reclining Theater Chair

Nothing could be more relaxing than a luxurious home theater environment, complete with movie theater seating. Just lean back in your comfy reclining chair, and immerse yourself in a great flick brought to life by a huge projection screen. Pure ecstasy.

That is until you are ripped back into reality by the unmistakable sound of your iPhone being crushed by the very chair you are sitting in, like the jaws of a giant can crusher. Unlike the movie you were watching, this story doesn't have a happy ending.

This is precisely what happened to one person, who posted his experience (complete with photos) on Flickr. Here's the story...

AT&T Notifies Customers By Text That It's Ending The Slaughter of Trees, Amazon Rainforest Declared Safe...For Now

AT&T Notifies Customers By Text That It's Ending The Slaughter of Trees, Amazon Rainforest Declared Safe...For Now

I just received a text message earlier today from AT&T, notifying me they are eliminating itemized details in billing, which has been the cause in a recent massive bloat in billing from the wireless carrier.

At&T free msg: We are simplifying your paper bill, removing itemized detail. To view all detail go to att.com/mywireless. Still need full paper bill? Call 611

Nice to see AT&T going green. And it only took public humiliation to change their policy. Who knew?

Thanks to Scott Berks for tipping me as well.
