iPhone 4 pre-orders now shipping

Apple iPhone 4 shipment notifications are now being sent out to those who managed to get their pre-orders in last Tuesday. (Those that were previously prepared for shipment and not randomly canceled we gather...)

They say for delivery June 23, though from past experience we're betting Apple puts a hold on them until launch day, June 24.

Did you get your shipping notice? Let us know in comments.

[Thanks Marcus!]

Some iPhone 4 orders prepared to ship, others getting cancelled?

Some iPhone 4 orders prepared to ship, others getting cancelled?

Good news and bad news time -- readers are letting us know they're starting to get their "prepared for shipment" notifications from Apple, but others are getting order cancelations.

You can see the prepared for shipment notice up top. The cancelation is after the break and appears linked to a failure to authorize. There's a theory going around that this has to do with people who, during the great order frak-up of 2010, ended up hitting the "submit" button multiple times, and these are just the extra phones being cancelled, but who knows at this point?

If you've gotten an notification from Apple or AT&T, let us know in the comments.

[Thanks to everyone who sent these in, including Darren and David. Additional info via Gizmodo]

Happy birthday iPhone 3GS

Happy birthday iPhone 3GS

A year ago today many of us were standing in line outside our local Apple Store waiting to get our geeky little hands on the iPhone 3GS, then king of the mobile space. Twice the speed, video recording, and VoiceControl were the killer features, even if the form factor was unchanged.

Complete Steve Jobs D8 interview now on iTunes

Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher's D8 conference interview with Steve Jobs has been posted in its entirety on iTunes for your higher quality, uninterrupted viewing and/or listening pleasure. It's quite a good interview and we get to see Jobs excited, pensive, and -- to quote him -- pi$$ed off.

A few of the points I found most interesting, after the break.

WolframAlpha for iPad - app review

WolframAlpha for iPad - app review

WolframAlpha is a computational knowledge engine on the web, and with their iPad application, you can perform calculations and look up information even easier. WolframAlpha is a universal application, so you pay once but receive the optimum experience on both your iPhone and iPad.

Using WolframAlpha is simple. Just type what you're interested in and WolframAlpha will provide you information about it. For mathematical expressions, the keyboard has an additional 3 rows of numbers and symbols. Tapping "more" on the keyboard will expand the keyboarding adding 4 more rows of symbols.

When solving advanced problems like integrals and derivatives, WolframAlpha not only provides the answers, but displays the steps taken to find it. The steps are very clearly written with sentences describing the procedure. This is my favorite feature of WolframAlpha because it is an excellent learning tool and because it is a feature missing from calculators.

Although the mathematical computing power of WolframAlpha is extremely impressive, I don't find it to be a good calculator replacement. For example, calculators are often used when making multiple calculations and being able to see previous results and quickly access them is something I've found invaluable. However, I view WolframAlpha as a separate tool in itself because it offers some features (like showing steps) that calculators do not.

The mathematical abilities of WolframAlpha are excellent, but it's not all the app has to offer. You can look up information on anything scientific, stocks, weather, health, linguistics, people, organizations, sports, music, and much more. There are very few things that WolframAlpha does not have information about. For example, when typing in the word "apple", WolframAlpha initially provides the stock information on Apple (AAPL), but at the top, there is a yellow bar that says "assuming "apple" is a financial entity". Tapping this gives alternative interpretations of the word "apple", including food. Using this meaning of the word, WolframAlpha provides an ample amount of nutritional information on apples.

The only disappointing thing about WolframAlpha is that you must have an internet connection to use it. So if you're somewhere without wifi or cell reception (for iPad 3G users), this application is useless. This is understandable because of the vast amount of information that WolframAlpha contains; however, it would be nice if the calculator-like functions were available offline. I would also like to see the ability to save certain pages for offline viewing.

WolframAlpha is a very powerful application despite it's inability to do anything offline. If you're a student, scientist, or someone who enjoys discovering information, I recommend adding WolframAlpha to your collection of iPad applications.

Video and screenshots after the break!

Rogers/Fido push out OTA iPhone Carrier Settings Update -- iOS 4 handles on-device

Rogers/Fido push out OTA iPhone Carrier Settings Update -- iOS 4 handles on-device

Interesting - Rogers and their Fido subsidiary pushed out a Carrier Settings Update for the iPhone (to version 7.1 for those keeping track). More interesting - iOS 4 seems to pop-it up over-the-air and offer to install it on-device. (Best as we can remember, the last update popped up in, and was installed by, iTunes on the desktop).

One more step towards the tether-less future. Anyone else, anywhere else, get an update?

[Thanks for the tip, Alex!]

TiPb iPhone 4 give-away: last chance to enter! (Plus stereo BT headphone give away!)

TiPb's giving away an iPhone 4 (technically a US Apple Retail Store gift certificate). In order to win, you need to make us a video telling us why you should be the one to get it. We're awarding the prize next Wednesday. That means this is your last chance to enter.

Want an iPhone 4, go read the contest details then put on your video hat and make with the movie. (Truth - there's a lot of lazy people out there who won't bother, odds are heavily in your favor if you do!)

Check out the first batch of entries, after the break and let us know your favorite. We'll pick a comment at random (a good quality one, no spam, no trolling) and give the commenter a Motorola S9-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headset courtesy of the TiPb iPhone Accessory Store.

(We'll post some more videos on Monday, so get yours in ASAP to be included!)
