Review: Incipio Executive OVRMLD Case for iPhone

by Douglas Morse

The Incipio Executive OVRMLD case for the iPhone ($29.95, store link) isn’t exactly a case of style over substance, though you could make that argument. Certainly my review unit’s smooth red leather offset with tan stitching makes a very attractive enclosure for the iPhone. My wife, who has yet to succumb to iPhone fever, remarked that I should keep this case around should she ever change her mind.

Phone Different Podcast #6

<

p>

It's an even bigger podcast than last week, coming in at almost an hour. We talk about some of the ins and outs of the new firmware, the danger to unlockers, rumors of iPhones abroad in Canada and France, the recent rumors of 2nd party apps, widgets and human interface guidelines, and of course the hacked apps. Then, we talk about Jobs and his reality distortion field, and some of the Apple lawsuits out there. And of course, the community gets the final words.

My Second iPhone Has Arrived, Kool-Aid Never Tasted So Good

My Second iPhone Has Arrived, Kool-Aid Never Tasted So Good

Boys and girls, let me tell you it ain't easy living without your iPhone for more than a week. The phrase Testicular impact comes to mind. It feels like eternity has passed since that dreaded day my inquisitive mind and impatient nature claimed the life of my iPhone. Rather than wait around for iPhone Dev Team to create a resuscitative baseband update, I applied my $100 Apple Store coupon towards the puchase of a second iPhone and succumbed to the siren call of Marimba ringtones.

iPhone v1.1.1 Firmware Jailbreak

0

iPhone v1.1.1 Firmware Jailbreak

That's right, the folks at the iPhone Dev reported via TUAW that they have accomplished jailbreaking on iPhones with the 1.1.1 firmware. Third party apps do run, though most of them will require a recompile. Most of the 1.1.1 applications won't work with 1.0.2 firmwares, which isn't surprising -- Apple probably did a bunch of work on their ABI though the API itself remained stable. The jailbreak method isn't ready for general consumption, so they ask our patience, but there are some tidbits that they've found buried in the update: "1.1.1 references both com.apple.mobile.radio and com.apple.mobile.nike". This probably isn't the first of little hidden tidbits about 1.1.1 that we've seen.

iPhone Password Manager: A Challenger Appears

iPhone Password Manager: A Challenger Appears


figure 1: the most important feature is highlighted

There's another password manager on the scene, and this one looks to be the most secure version that I've seen. 1Password is a mac-only application, so there unfortunately isn't a password manager I could securely recommend to Windows iPhone users yet. The application has a little button that sends an encrypted bookmarklet to Safari that you can then sync to your iPhone. You can open the bookmarklet and view your passwords with a master password that you assign within 1Password.

iPhone Hacking Update

iPhone Hacking Update

There hasn't been a lot of noteworthy progress on opening up 1.1.1 like there was on version 1.0 of the firmware, and that's to be expected. However, there were some valiant pushes forward last week, by prominent iPhone hacker Erica Sadun who mapped out the filesystem of the 1.1.1 update. This is notable as it pre-empts the requirement to decrypt the filesystem before inspecting files and whatnot.

Apple To Surpass IBM

Apple To Surpass IBM

Apple is going to surpass IBM in terms of stock market capitalization, perhaps as soon as the first quarter of 2008. A split is reported as also being a possibility. Apple surpassing IBM in terms of market capitalization will be a historic moment for longtime Apple fans, considering Apple's famous anti-IBM Macintosh ad 1984. Of course, the IBM of today isn't anywhere near the IBM of those days, but it is still a big accomplishment, given that Apple was fully in the toilet as recently the late 90s.

iPhone To Get 2nd Party Apps?

iPhone To Get 2nd Party Apps?

I've claimed over and over that the iPhone is built to buy things from iTunes. One of the things that we should be able to buy from iTunes is programs. Games, if that's your thing; mental diversions. I'm glad to report that 9to5mac.com says that it's coming. Of course, they call it 3rd party development, which is kind of a misnomer. If it requires that a developer sign a contract and get Apple's blessing just to get the development tools, it's a lot more like 2nd party development. It would bring the iPhone and iPod Touch to feature parity with the iPod Classic and Nano, so I'm glad to see it, assuming it's true (which I do).

Time Warner Building iTunes Competitor

Time Warner Building iTunes Competitor

Time Warner is building an iTunes competitor. You know, sometimes I get irked when I see websites use the word "competitor" so loosely. The geniuses at Time Warner Cable have had a long time to think about music and they've had a long time to watch Apple's iTunes and mirror its success. So, they've unveiled a service that is:

iPhone Not Coming to France?


figure 1: Apple and Orange?

It was widely expected that Apple would have some happy things to say about the iPhone and French mobile operator Orange last week at Apple Expo Paris. But, the expo came and went without any sort of iPhone news whatsoever. It looks like we may now know the reason why.
