iPod touch 4 running Apple TV Lowtide interface

iPod touch 4 running Apple TV Lowtide interface

Lowtide runs the Apple TV interface, similar to how SpringBoard runs the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad home screen system, and it looks like Apple designed the built-in iOS app with cross-device support because developer Dunstin Howett got it up and running on an iPod touch 4.

Erica Sadun from TUAW has the details:

This is probably not something you'll want to do yourself. And the reason is pretty technical, so please excuse me while I get all jargony on you. Extracting frameworks from the iPhone's "dyld" cache system was not enough to get the app to run (an approach I initially tried). Instead, you need to use caches native to Apple TV, which is the approach Howett used.

So it's more a proof-of-concept than anything practical at this point, but getting things to run where they ought not is like climbing a mountain -- because it's there.

Video after the break!

Apple TV (2010) tear down, similar to iPad inside

Apple TV (2010) barely made it off the shelves before the folks at iFixit sent us word they had a tear down under way. And it turns out this new Apple TV has a lot in common with Apple's other new iOS device this year, the iPad:

  • The Apple TV has 256 RAM, just like the 4th Generation iPod Touch and the iPad. The key marking of interest on the A4 processor package is "K4X2G643GE," which is identical to the marking found on the iPad.

How to get Apple to do a non-warranty repair [Tip]

How to get Apple to do a non-warranty repair [Tip]

What's the best way to get Apple to do a non-warranty repair on your bricked or broken iPhone or iPad? Simple: tell the truth.

I have seen all kinds of schemes cooked up by people who have done something ill-advised to their devices. They have a strategy. They know how to fool the liquid sensors. They have a story for the dent they couldn't pound out. They play innocent when their product is mysteriously bricked. They have a plan for every contingency.

ToDo for iPhone Updated to support local notifications and much, much more...

ToDo for iPhone by Appigo has long been one of my favorite productivity apps.  I've been desperately waiting to see this app updated mainly with support for local notifications.  The fact that you'd have to open the app in order to update the badge was somewhat irritating.  It's part of the reason I switched back to Evernote.

Not only does ToDo now support local notifications, it's been updated with complete multitasking support as well as high resolution graphics for the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th gen.  It also supports password protection and adding multiple alerts for tasks.  I've noticed the app overall is a lot more responsive as well.
