For the finest in sleek, durable protection, this skin for the iPhone 3G is made of rubberized plastic and features a minimal wall thickness of 1mm. Interior rubber guardrails provide shock absorption, in addition, help to impact and this skin helps with scratch protection.
TapTapTap, developers of the upcoming Plasma app decided to slap a big, honkin’ frame rate indicator on a raw version just to see what differences, if any, the iPhone 3GS hardware provided compared to the previous generation iPhone 3G. The results?
As the video shows, in our OpenGL ES testing, the 3GS is generally close to four times faster than the 3G. Results will vary depending on the application but this is remarkable to say the least.
Check out the link above to watch the full QuickTime video. Impressive stuff.
The wait is over ladies and gentleman. The Dev-Team has released their latest software to unlock iPhone 3G's running the 3.0 software. Again, it is important to remember when a 3G S jailbreak application is released do not use Ultrasn0w with the iPhone 3G S.
To unlock your iPhone 3G 3.0 is as simple as jailbreaking your device, downloading Ultrasn0w via Cydia, and running the software. For full detailed directions be sure to check out the Dev-Teams blog.
Still waiting for its turn to get into the slow-moving App Store, IM+ is ready with version 3.1 which adds support for iPhone 3.0 Push Notifications. Text alerts, badges, and sounds are all supported, and can be individually enabled or disabled both through Apple's Notifications Settings panel.
IM+ supports a ton of services, including Skype, AOL, MSN, Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo!, Google Talk, Jabber, ICQ, and MySpace. Testing it with AOL proved to be a quick, clean experience, with IM+ launching and re-connecting to their server in a brisk and snappy manner on an iPhone 3GS. Copy and Paste also worked well, albeit it only in the text input box (I couldn't find a way to select or copy text from previous chat bubbles).
Hopefully Apple will approve IM+ 3.1 with Push for the App Store soon. In the meantime, you can take advantage of sale pricing on the previous version, 3.0 (which pushed via re-direct to email). $5.99 via iTunes.
DirectFix let us know they've posted the first video with step-by-step tear down and build back up directions for Apple's new iPhone 3GS. They also passed along that:
DirectFix.com already has replacement LCD screens and touch panels available on its website. We expect our first inquiries in the following days, as there are always some that almost immediately drop their new iPhones.
Here's hoping not though. Keep your new iPhones safe!
In the justice system of internet zaniness, iPhones are represented by two separate yet equally important groups. Apple, who creates cool technology, and the badapps people who put it to use. These are their stories...
First up, reader Matt pointed us towards an article on CNN.com where a passenger traveling within the US, carrying over $4000 in cash, was held for questioning and all he had to defend himself was:
a pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution and an iPhone capable of making audio recordings. And he used them.
