Apple Offers Refurbished iPhones for Desperate Customers

Apple is now listing refurbished iPhones at store.apple.com for those who desperately want an iPhone but can't swing its premium price tag. These units sell for $100 less than the price of their shrink wrapped counterparts, which isn't a bad deal, depending on the condition these iPhones are in (these are pre-owned remember).

If this deal sounds sweet you better act quickly while supplies last. Only a handful of units are currently available. Get 'em before the vultures swoop in.

My Own Billing Nightmare, Courtesy of AT&T

My Own Billing Nightmare, Courtesy of AT&T

Over the weekend I received my AT&T bill in the mail - both of them. Huh...TWO envelopes? Rather than the usual slim parcel containing a handful of billing statements, I received two overstuffed packets filled with nearly sixty pages, detailing every minutia of data. While this is still a far cry from Justine Ezarik's infamous 300 page AT&T bill, it still exceeds the boundaries of reason and is horrific waste of tree.

Dial M for Anchovies

Dial M for Anchovies

What could be more convenient than ordering pizza by phone? Ordering pizza by iPhone, of course. A service called Tribal Pizza puts a new spin on the tired concept of street corner Pizzerias by combining all the social network flair of Digg with the convenience of fast food, topped with web 2.0 goodness.

Here's how it works. By visiting Tribal's website, you design your very own Pizza creation through a web interface - any combination of toppings and layers you like. Users then vote or "Digg" your creation up or down, in a matter of speaking. If your Pizza design proves to be popular enough, Tribal will market it and pay you on a commission basis. You know, a slice of the profits, a piece of the action, share the dough.

Bear Stearns Says iPhone Looks Good in Suit and Tie

Bear Stearns Says iPhone Looks Good in Suit and Tie

Andrew Neff, an analyst well known for his Nostradamic prognostications of doom and gloom in the PC sector which largely came true, is now casting his crystal ball on iPhone. He sees iPhone gaining backdoor corporate adoption by way of individual innovative. In Lehman's terms, people who work in large companies will buy their own iPhones and carry them to work. A sound rationale, but I don't consider that corporate adoption anymore than my wearing Levi's 501 jeans to work as corporate adoption of denim.

But the more iPhones that enter the workplace, the greater its chance for enterprise support.

Multiply: Yet Another Social Network for iPhone

Multiply: Yet Another Social Network for iPhone

Quick, someone throw me a life jacket. I'm drowning in a sea of social networks! I've actually lost count of the exact number in existence, but it has to be in the hundreds by now.

Well you can add another bookmark to your overflowing list of socials. This one goes by the name Multiply, who has developed a web-based social networking application for the iPhone. One feature that differentiates Multiply from other networks is that it integrates Media-Sharing Capabilities into its service rather than act just as a web frontend for text, like so many other services - Twitter, I'm casting an eye in your direction.

Among the list of things you can do with Multiply...

Minglets Brings iPhone Users Closer Together, Spreads World Peace

Minglets Brings iPhone Users Closer Together, Spreads World Peace

Minglets is a new social network designed specifically for iPhone users to meet and mingle. Just go to app.minglets.com, select one of many different categories of topics to choose from, then chat with other iPhone users who share your common interest.

My only complaint is that a broader range of topics is desperately needed. I didn't see a Suicide hotline for overcharged AT&T users available, and that is a must have.

Study Says iPhone Twice As Slow to Text as Blackberry, Wh...i..ch..is Tot..olee Totally.. Un...Tr..weu Untrue

User Centric, Inc., a usability consultancy research group, has published a study finding that iPhone's virtual keyboard is nearly twice as slow to enter text compared with devices that have fixed hardware buttons.

The study gave iPhones to 20 participants who were asked to send text messages and emails using the device, while UC searchers monitored their actions. Hilarity ensued. The group found texting on devices with fixed keys to be fast and accurate. On the iPhone - slow and clumsy.

Review: Belkin Sport Armband

Review: Belkin Sport Armband


figure 1: the Belkin Sport Armband. Note the absence of the holes by the key slot

I quit smoking over a year ago. I didn't like how expensive it all was (a pack a day gets expensive quick), so I started rolling my own cigarettes; which is probably way worse for you. I liked smoking, but I knew I had to quit. I was going to be moving in to a house, meaning my tiny little monthly rent was going to jump up to a ginormous monthly mortgage. So I quit. Boy, did that suck. I mean, it sucked at first. Eventually I was done with smoking and that's great, nothing bad about that. Except for the 30 pounds I packed on. The charts don't say I'm overweight, but I started running anyway. It's either that or buy a whole bunch of pants.

I can do a mile without killing myself, so that's great. It takes a while; long enough that I sometimes wish for music or podcasts as I jog. But, I'm not really excited about dumping an iPhone to flop around in my running shorts. Ergo, the need for the Belkin Sport Armband case (store link, $24.95).

Clever Hacker Creates Myth TV Remote for iPhone

Clever Hacker Creates Myth TV Remote for iPhone

Kyle Stoneman managed to successfully setup his very own Myth TV box. After dancing wildly through the living room, shouting with glee, like a nine year old boy on Christmas morning, his elation was soon dampened when he realized that controlling the box required sitting next to a computer. Lame.

So the industrious would-be hacker came up with a solution - use the iPhone as a remote. And wouldn't you know it, the son of a b*tch did it!. He even posted a video demonstrating his creation.

Here At The iPhone Blog, We Care About You...Even On Slow News Days

iPhone Officially Unlocked, Geeks Swoon in Rapture

iPhone Officially Unlocked, Geeks Swoon in Rapture

What are you doing, Dave?

I think we should talk this over before you do something rash.

Why don't you take a stress pill and we can sit down and talk about it.

Dave?

You can begin popping corks off Champaign bottles and dance through the streets in your underpants. This is the moment that many folks have waited for.

In case you've been living under a rock this morning the internet is aflutter with news that iPhone has now finally unlocked, using an $80 tool called Turbo SIM card.

The feat is said to be 100% effective, meaning that it unlocks all of iPhones features and functions, allowing users to make and receive calls, SMS, access GPRS readio (data), browse the web, send email, download porn, over any GSM network. Viola!

Lights Off, The First Native iPhone Game, The Shot Heard Round the World

Lights Off, The First Native iPhone Game, The Shot Heard Round the World

Oh Apple, how ever did you think you could keep developers from breaking down iPhone's backdoor. Hmm? Not only have developers managed to find their way inside, knocking over lamps as they stumble in the dark, but one developer created a rather illuminating piece of software. meniacal laugh

Lights Off is the first, that we know of, "unofficial" game for iPhone. The first of many perhaps. The goal of this simple puzzle game is to switch off all the little blinking lights in order to advance levels. Installing this code isn't for the faint of heart. It involves a bit of rubber chicken swinging and poking through iPhone's hidden file system. Full instructions are on the site.
