Quick App Update: PCalc RPN for iPhone 1.8... With Censorship?!

UPDATE: Just so everyone is clear, the developer did this as a parody, Apple didn't censor anything. B'okay? Read the full 8008135 story on Three Letter Acronym...

PCalc RPN Calculator [$9.99 - iTunes link] for iPhone has just updated to version 1.8, and the update is... rather unique:

Have you, or somebody close to you, ever turned your calculator upside down and accidentally seen a mildly suggestive word? Have you ever been in a maths class, and had to put up with groups of giggling boys performing elaborate calculations that are not part of the lesson?

Akamai Network Ready to Stream HD to iPhone

Huge internet content backbone Akamai is introducing their new on-demand, streaming HD Network, along with support for... the iPhone. Says Macworld:

Akamai worked with Apple to make HD Network video run on the iPhone using the standard H.264 format. The iPhone 3.0 software upgrade, introduced in June, added support for live video. Content providers can use the HD Network to deliver programs for the iPhone through the Safari Web browser or an application offered on the App Store. The videos can play on the phone’s video player, as YouTube videos do now.

Regarding Tweetie 2.0 Costing $3

Regarding Tweetie 2.0 Costing $3

We were going to post some long preachy editorial about Tweetie 2.0 being a paid upgrade but it looks like everyblog and their siblingsite has already done that. So here's our quick take:

We're buying it, and happily. We asked developer Atebits why they went the route of a new app vs. an in-app purchase, and the response is worth quoting:

If all I were adding were features, then the in-app purchase route would have been an option (but then again, if all I were offering were features, I'd probably release it as a free update). Tweetie 2 is a fresh start, 100% rewritten, shares no code with the original :). The only thing they have in common is the name.

Apple Genius: AT&T Dropped Call Rate for NYC is 30%

Apple Genius: AT&T Dropped Call Rate for NYC is 30%

According to a Gizmodo reader who took his iPhone to the Apple Store Genius Bar due to issues with dropped calls, a 30% failure rate in New York City is normal.

Now, we all know AT&T's network crumbles beneath the weight of the iPhone (and suspect any other single network might as well), but it's not often we get numbers to go with it.

Wednesday Fun Video: 1984 Gets DoubleTwist'ed

Wednesday Fun Video: 1984 Gets DoubleTwist'ed

DVD Jon, who gained fame and notoriety for cracking DVD and iTunes encryption, has since devoted a lot of his time and energy into DoubleTwist, and iTunes replacement. The above video is, of course, a parody of Apple's anti-IBM "big brother" commercial that aired during the 1984 SuperBowl, this time recasting Apple -- and Steve Jobs -- as "big brother" and intimating they've become what they once mocked. All this by way of promoting the next release of DoubleTwist for Mac, coming Oct. 6.

Apps in Need of Rejection: Ones That Steal Your iPhone Number and Call You to Up-sell

Apps in Need of Rejection: Ones That Steal Your iPhone Number and Call You to Up-sell

So you make an app free, get people to download it, then use it to violate your users' privacy by pulling their telephone number off their iPhone so you can call them and try to annoy them into coughing up money for your paid app.

Yeah, that should be a rejection, if not a banning.

(No, we're not mentioning the name of the app, why give them publicity? Picture)
