iPhone OS 4: iPod application includes hidden automobile integration

iPhone OS 4: iPod application includes hidden automobile integration

Another gem of a feature has been discovered in iPhone OS 4 - dedicated support for in-car systems. This new feature allows an iPhone or iPod to generate an on-screen menu that is fed via a video out to your car using IAP (iPod Accessory Protocol). Your device then becomes a remote control.

Now with some states banning the use of cellphones while driving we are not too sure how good of an idea this is for anyone but passengers. Regardless, it suggests that Apple may soon introduce their own car kit. The ability to connect our iPhone or iPod (or iPad) to a car-kit to gain full access to the vehicles complete audio libraries sounds pretty cool to us.

Would any of you be interested in a Apple Car-Kit? Sound off in the comments!

Where did file sharing go in iPhone 3.2 and will it come back for iPhone OS 4?

Where did file sharing go in iPhone 3.2 and will it come back for iPhone OS 4?

9to5Mac casts a spotlight on the file sharing feature shown off during Apple's iPad Announcement event back in January as part of iPhone 3.2 for iPad... and how it was mysteriously gone come launch day, April 3.

Given the current kluge that is getting files onto and off of the iPad file sharing seems like a fairly important feature to suddenly go missing.

How does your iPad usage differ from your iPhone usage?

How does your iPad usage differ from your iPhone usage?

For those of you who have both an iPad and an iPhone or iPod touch, how does you usage differ between those two devices?

It's been just over a week now and I'm finding that I grab the iPhone for quick, on the go and interstitial activities and the iPad for slower, more relaxed and deliberate activities.

Opera Mini for iPhone Approved, in App Store now

Opera Mini for iPhone Approved, in App Store now

Opera has just announced that their Opera Mini browser for iPhone has been approved [Free - iTunes link]. According to Engadget, it's already popping up in some international App Stores and should/could be in your App Store any time now. Update: looks like it's live now, go get it!

Opera Mini likely received approval because it's not an actual web rendering, JavaScript processing engine like Safari (or Firefox, IE, Chrome, etc.) but a proxy-browser. All the rendering and processing is done on Opera's servers and then compressed and sent to the app for display.

This also means it doesn't use as much data, and can thus usually display web pages faster and with slower data connections than a full-on browser -- especially useful for people on roaming data rates or on EDGE connections.

It breaks SSL encryption by necessity however (https sites), so while you may want to use it to traveling the outskirts, you'll like want to avoid it when mobile banking downtown.

(You also might want to use it for it's on-page text search feature -- something even iPhone OS 4 still lacks.)

Let us know when Opera Mini appears in the App Store for you, and if you try it, what you think of it. Video of Dieter checking out the pre-release version after the break!

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

Adobe shakes tiny Vader fist at Apple, launches Flash CS5

Adobe shakes tiny Vader fist at Apple, launches Flash CS5

Despite Apple's new iPhone OS 4 SDK licensing agreement preventing the use of cross-compilers, Adobe launched Flash CS5 with Packager for iPhone today which aims to do just that -- let developers turn Flash apps into iPhone apps.

Adobe announced the complete CS5 suite of apps as well, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and Premiere, but the mobile world's attention remained fixed on Flash CS5 and the escalating war of words on the interwebs. While many developers are understandably upset with Apple, the countervailing trend from an Apple point of view is lining up behind the "control" and "quality" arguments. Apple doesn't want to lose control of the iPhone platform to Adobe any more than it does to Google. It wants to release the OS it wants, when it wants, and not have to worry about third-party warlords holding it, and large percentages of its app user base, hostage.
