AT&T blocks June holidays again -- countdown to iPhone HD

BGR claims AT&T has begun their yearly tradition of blocking employee holidays for the month of June in anticipation of the 4th generation iPhone (not iPhone 4G but possibly iPhone HD) launch.

A June block suggests a launch that could be as early as last year's June 17 iPhone 3GS affair, but is also consistent with previous years' late-June releases.

Quick Review: PCalc for iPad

Quick Review: PCalc for iPad

PCalc [$9.99 - iTunes link] is one of the leading calculators for iPhone and now its computing power has been updated (as in universal binary) to include support for iPad.

PCalc is an (optional) RPN calculator that is great for scientists, engineers, programmers, and students. It includes a list of common constants, an ample amount of conversions, a paper tape that can be shared via email, and support for binary, hexadecimal, and octal calculations. You can also customize the look of PCalc with different themes and digit fonts.

The interface on iPad is rather beautiful in both landscape and portrait. The buttons are nice and big and everything is easy to read. Navigation between the menus is a much more pleasant experience than on the iPhone.

To see PCalc in action, watch the video after the break!

Norway's Prime Minister, NSA's 3-star General -- iPad users!

Norway's Prime Minister, NSA's 3-star General -- iPad users!

Looks like the heads of Norway, and the American National Security Agency (NSA), have both gotten their hands on Apple's new iPad and -- they like it.

First it was Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stotlenberg, who was snapped using an iPad while waiting out the volcanic ash-imposed flight delays back to Europe. Looks like he was also sporting Apple's iPad case, which based on our quick review isn't exactly the best choice to avoid nasty ash stains... Still, watching an entire nation being run on an iPad -- the future is here.

Quick Review: Epicurious for iPad

Quick Review: Epicurious for iPad

Epicurious [Free - iTunes Link] from CondeNet is one of the best cooking apps you can get on the iPad. It has almost everything you could ask for including over 28,000 recipes, with the number growing daily.

The interface is beautiful with the recipes neatly organized depending on main ingredient, health restrictions, nationality, what's new, and more. The cookbook section of Epicurious is even easier to navigate on the larger iPad screen. You can have the recipe instructions displayed on the side while looking at the ingredients, photos, user reviews, and nutritional information. There is even a little bookmark so you can keep your place as you look at other sections.

Finding what you want in Epicurious is also a breeze. It has a search tool which allows you to find your next meal by keyword. On the sidebar you can simply click or un-click ingredients to filter the results further and match any dietary restrictions or keep the choices narrowed to just the ingredients you have in the house.

Epicurious also has a wonderful shopping list button and if you want to share your latest recipe with your friends you can email it.

For screenshots and video of this must-have iPad cooking app, stay with us after the break!

UPDATED: Pulitzer Prize winning satirist can't get into App Store

UPDATED: Pulitzer Prize winning satirist can't get into App Store

UPDATE: According to the WSJ, Apple has contacted Fiore:

Apple called the cartoonist Thursday and suggested that he resubmit the app, Mr. Fiore said in an interview. “I feel kind of guilty,” he said. “I’m getting preferential treatment because I got the Pulitzer.”

Preferential perhaps but not uncommon. Several controversial app rejections have been reconsidered when publicity brought them to the attention of higher-ups at Apple. Unfortunately, the "review team rejects, executive team reconsiders" is not a scalable or likely desirable strategty for Apple.

iPhone 4 beta 1 jailbreak on iPhone 3G - multitasking included

iPhone 4 beta 1 jailbreak on iPhone 3G - multitasking included

Apple has not been shy in stating that the original iPhone 3G will not support multitasking but iPhone hacker cdevwill has proved them wrong - sort of. After the break you can see a YouTube video of an iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 4 jailbroken with functional multitasking.

While this all seems like a bed of roses stop and think about it for a minute: the only apps someone could test currently are those built in the iPhone OS 4 software (many of which have always multitasked) - no 3rd party apps. You'll notice in the video the amount of time it takes to open the clock application. Now imagine trying to play a game like Plants vs. Zombies and checking your Twitter all while streaming Pandora.

So while multitasking on an iPhone 3G appears to work, don't expect a very smooth experience. This is more than likely the reason Apple claims it will not work (even if they'd rather you upgraded your hardware).

If you want to learn more about jailbreaking in general stop by our forum dedicated to the topic and be sure to check out the video after the break!
