Infamous Safari Security Cracker Finds Vulnerability-ish in iPhone OS?

Infamous Safari Security Cracker Finds Vulnerability-ish in iPhone OS?

Very little code is bullet-proof. Hackers will always find holes. The worst holes will be critical. The worst hacks will be zero-day and found in the wild -- catching companies and users both by surprise.

Not sure we have any of that here. Macworld does report that, at the Black Hat Europe Security Conference, former NSA number cruncher Charlie Miller -- who has rolled his ability to find exploits in the Mac version of Apple's Safari Browser into tens of thousands of dollars and a couple free MacBooks at the annual Pwn2Own contest -- claims to have:

iPhone Hulu App: The Next SlingGate?

Rumor is that Hulu is working on a application that will be available in the App Store sometime in the near future. Silicon Alley Insider has learned about it from a "plugged-in industry executive" and it is said that the application itself will be as slick as Hulu's website and it will work on 3G as well as WiFi. Judging from the popularity of Hulu and their really cool commercials, this app could be a huge hit.

iPhone 3.0 Beta 3: Mobile Me Merge, Publish, and Share

We've now gotten a few reports and some screenshots of yet more new functionality in iPhone 3.0 Beta 3.

First is "merge". If you already have bookmarks, contacts, or other data on your iPhone (for example, if you synced it over via iTunes) and you enable MobileMe, a menu will slide up asking if you want to merge the data, not merge (i.e. replace), or cancel.

Next are "Publishing to MobileMe", which shows a direct upload status bar, and new options to view published items on MobileMe, or "tell a friend" (via MMS?).

Reminder: Apple's All About Profit Share NOT Market Share

Quarterly results time, when the internet's fancy turns to chicken-little predictions of how many percentage points this or that company slipped on which or what index of... who cares.

It's not the first time we've mentioned this, and we're certainly not the first people to have mentioned it. Yet, just like clockwork every 3 months analysts spout estimates and every blog and their commenters race to re-publish what in essence are meaningless numbers.

Verizon Sniffing Around iPhone 4G?

According to the Wall Street Journal (via Apple Insider), Verizon thinks that technology may finally give them a chance for a second bite at this not-at-all proverbial Apple after all. At least CEO Ivan Seidenberg really, really thinks so.

Nintendo and Sony Feeling iPhone Heat?

Nintendo and Sony Feeling iPhone Heat?

We have covered the iPhone and gaming from top to bottom here at TiPb. The iPhone still has a lot of catching up to do in terms of the quality of the games and you can also toss in the lack of physical controls as a huge negative. All that aside, for the most part we've felt that if Apple plays their cards correctly, they could be a major player in the handheld gaming wars alongside the likes of Nintendo and Sony.

CEOh-Snap! Storm Owners, RIM Says Your Device is teh Sux and it's Your Fault for Buying It

CEOh-Snap! Storm Owners, RIM Says Your Device is teh Sux and it's Your Fault for Buying It

Seriously, I'm beginning to heart RIM's co-CEOs almost as much as I heart Steve Ballmer. Give the mobilemen a venue and a mic, and we get blog gold each and every time. Chronology will help context here:

Mike Lazaridis on touch screen devices:

THERE’S a reason that R.I.M. is averse to the iPhone’s glass pad. “I couldn’t type on it and I still can’t type on it, and a lot of my friends can’t type on it,” says Mike Lazaridis, R.I.M.’s co-chief executive and technological visionary. “It’s hard to type on a piece of glass.”

Patent Watch: iPhone Interface to Go Shake and Grow?

MacRumors has dug up an interesting Apple patent application that would try to mitigate the difficulty associated with tapping while moving (i.e. jogging, back seat of cab, etc.) by dynamically increasing the size of targets in the user interface when it detects jerky motion.

Will we ever see it in an actual iPhone? Who knows. Would it be helpful if, while you're trying to add a potential dates new contact info at the social while getting your krump on, the icons and input areas kept zooming up on you?
