Findme: LoJack for your iPhone

Findme: LoJack for your iPhone

Erica Sadun has done it again, creating a great app for the iPhone called "findme." What it does is constantly track your iPhone's location and sends it via SMS to Twitter. The idea is that if your iPhone is stolen or you want to enable your stalkers to keep track of you constantly, you can set this up and you'll automatically have a private Twitter page that shows the iPhone's approximate longitude and latitude.

iPhone SDK: Delayed? Full Featured? Yes Please.

iPhone SDK: Delayed? Full Featured? Yes Please.

The SDK might be delayed one to three weeks, says Arik Hesseldal of BusinessWeek:

I’m hearing from one source that its going to be late. I’m not yet hearing any reasons why, and it’s sounding like the official release date could slide by anywhere from one to three weeks. [...] However I’m also hearing that the situation is fluid, and a lot of last-minute decisions are close to being made about what precisely will or will not be disclosed next week, if anything. There are, apparently, a lot of moving parts to something this complex.

A lot of "moving parts," eh, ya think? It would be a major bummer if the SDK is delayed, but it wouldn't be too shocking - the sand is quickly running out of February's hourglass. Fairly soon, though, we're going to have some information about the SDK and I have to admit that my expectations are rising the more I think about it.

This is related (again) to Mike and my discussion in our iPhone Podcast last week. As I see it, there are four ways that the SDK announcement (whenever it comes) can shake out. Read on for some thoughts on what we might see and what I hope to see.

Tiny Code: Just Kidding!

Tiny Code: Just Kidding!

That giant gaping hole you see in my cheek, that would be the result of the hook that KellyTM of Tiny Code used to fish me in. Thankfully, I'm not alone. Turns out that, per this MacRumors post, he was just joking around. Yeah: No 1.1.4. No NDA broken (or ever even signed). No wrist slap. No nothing.

At least the rumors were plausible, right? Oh well, we shouldn't be surprised. With the official SDK so close, it was inevitable that there's be some crazy rumors floated about.

Lying Bastard: iPhone SDK Leak Site Exposed as Hoax, Sparking Waves of Angry "Sent from my iPhone" emails

Angry verbs and adjectives are flying from iRate iPhone users brewing over the revelation that a site claiming to have a leaked SDK and working in partnership with Apple, was in fact a hoax intended to generate traffic and a some laughs. It's getting lots of the former, but very little of the latter. The person behind the hoax site, Tiny Code, perpetrated this caper by posting what he alleged to be "leaked" information, then later pulled down the information, at the request (so he claimed) of Apple's attorneys, and even redirected the site domain to point to Apple's server.

In a forum post on MacRumors he confesses to his crime and then blames the blogosphere for picking up the story in the first place...

iPhone SDK and Firmware Release "Imminent", As In "Look Out Your Window, It's Pulling Up the Driveway Now"

Remember those long hot summer days, back in your childhood, when the musical sounds of an ice cream truck pulling into your neighborhood sent you bolting out the door and running into the street, painting the sidewalk with your saliva along the way? Well prepare to feed your inner child another tasty treat. Tiny Code, the site behind Installer.app repositories (yes, THAT installer.app) has apparently leaked information regarding Apple's upcoming iPhone SDK, claiming that it was working with Apple to develop said SDK, no less.

China Syndrome: iPhones Stolen From Chinese Factory, Then Sold on Grey Market.

Psst! Hey, buddy. Yeah, you! Over here. You want hot merchandise? These here iPhones just ahem fell off the truck today. Oh these are real beauties too. Fresh from from the factory, as they say. Get'em while you can because my supplies are rather limited, if you catch my meaning, and the Chinese Police are very interested in my wares.

Google Sees 50 times more iPhone Searches

We've heard it before, Google has an iPhone fixation. Well it's looking like that fixation works both ways - apparently the earlier numbers we saw that said the iPhone was on the web more than any other mobile web browser were, how shall we say it? ....Ridiculously conservative.

Google sees 50 times more web searches from iPhones than they do from any other mobile browser:
