Could the Apple TV be Replaced by the iPhone, iPod, or iTablet?

With Apple consolidating its Apple TV offerings this morning down to a single 160GB SKU at a lower $229 price point, we're once again split between Apple axing their "hobby" or giving it a much-needed refresh.

WebGL and TuneKit, Not Flash, the Future for iPhone?

More than 2 years post-iPhone launch, no news on Flash ever coming to the iPhone, yet Apple is pressing ahead with technologies like H.264 video (YouTube App's been using it since day one), HTML 5 and CSS animation (iPhone Safari supported them first), HTTP Live Streaming, and now WebGL for hardware accelerated 3D-graphics, and TuneKit, the framework behind the new iTunes LP rich media content.

Read on to find out what they are, how they work, and why they might make plugins like Flash increasingly unnecessary...

Poll: Has AT&T Switched on Your MMS Early?

Poll: Has AT&T Switched on Your MMS Early?

Some readers are hitting us up saying they can already access MMS on AT&T. This has been happening for a while, of course. Justin was able to use MMS during the 3.1 beta, after all. We figured AT&T was testing the system. Now, AT&T officially has until the promised September 25 drop date to get all iPhone users up and running, however, it appears more and more people are gaining access to MMS and it's not going away (at least yet).

So, in an effort to find out just how widespread this early MMS access is, we're running the poll above, and if you are getting MMS already, asking you to let us know where, and for how long in the comments below.

Skype Taken Over Canadian App Store Categories?

Skype Taken Over Canadian App Store Categories?

Yes, the Canadian App Store Categories tab really is all-Skype, all the time and has been for me since just after iPhone 3.1 launched last Wednesday (and no, the irony isn't lost on us). Since App Store is fed by the web, I figured Apple would realize it and fix whatever feed needed fixing, but so far no such luck.

I tried TUAW's workaround -- switching to the US App Store an back, but iTunes intercepted me saying I couldn't change stores until I'd spent whatever iTunes credit I had left in my account, and my rentals expired (I don't currently have any rentals -- the only one expired last weekend).

So I'm back to hoping Apple realizes it and fixes it, but if anyone does come up with a repeatable user-end fix, do let all of us Canadians know in the comments.

Showtime's Dexter for iPhone Slashes Into App Store

Dexter fans can now visit the App Store and pick up their favorite serial killers very own iPhone game for $5.99. [iTunes Link] It was almost a year ago since we first mentioned that this game was in development. Hopefully the extra time it took to arrive has paid off. Judging from the above video and what I've seen in the brief time I've spent with the final version, it does seem a bit more polished.

GSM Encryption Cracked: Know Your Risks

The cracking of GSM "encryption" has been making the inter-rounds lately, and this week on the Security Now! Podcast, Steve Gibson takes a look at how badly it's broken, and what the potential risks are. In simple terms, it means what you say on your iPhone -- or any GSM phone, which includes all phones on AT&T, T-Mobile, Rogers, and almost all phones internationally -- can be intercepted, decrypted, and listened to if a person has several thousand dollars worth of equipment and the motivation to do it.
