CBS aims to find out the answer to that very question when it puts a new, March Madness-centric iPhone WiFi streaming app up on the App Store. Will free competition from TV, PC, Mac -- and pretty much every other platform out there -- along with no cell access to video (audio only on 3G and EDGE) make the price tag too high? Or will rabid college hoops fans who can't put their iPhone's down swallow the costs and the radio tether?
So Rene just dropped a bomb on all of us announcing that Apple is holding a special sneak peak of iPhone OS 3.0 next Tuesday, March 17th! This is major news in the iPhone world so why not discuss it in our forums? What exactly do you want to see from iPhone OS 3.0? MMS and tethering seem to be two confirmed features, which happens to be big news for a lot of you out there.
We just got the announcement, iPhone OS 3.0 is coming. Set your clocks, mark your calendars. It's going down March 17th. Apparently, we'll get a sneak peak at the new OS, as well as a look at a brand new version of the SDK.
Konami has released some new shots of Metal Gear Solid Touch for the iPhone and iPod touch and they look... snakey! BGR quotes:
A special ‘Advance Edition’ of Metal Gear Solid Touch containing the first 12 stages of the game is scheduled for release on the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch in March of 2009. The final release will follow with eight additional stages of gameplay, and will be available to existing players via a free update on the Apple App Store.
One of the new features in Apple's iTunes 8.1, released just today, is iTunes DJ. Replacing the old Party Shuffle atop the Playlists heap, it also integrates with the Apple Remote app for the iPhone for shiny party goodness.
How does it work? At first look, anyone at your party with the Apple Remote app can request songs from your iTunes library, and everyone with the app can vote for which song gets played when. Genius seems to work with it as well.
Jeremy was kind enough to grab us some screenshots, after the break! If you've given it a go already, let us know if you've found anything else in there!
Yes, as expected this morning, Apple has released iTunes 8.1 (and Front Row 2.1.7) with support for the new iPod shuffle 4G with VoiceOver, also tied into the updated Apple Remote app [iTunes link] released earlier today for the iPhone and iPod touch.
Anyone got it yet? Is it really faster, stronger, and better for you? Let us know!
Yes, that title is a totally sarcastic way to say the new controls on Apple's new iPod shuffle 4G reach NASA-like complexity levels. (Insert ancient telegraph sounds here).
So complicated are they, in fact, Apple has a knowledge-base article up about it along with a chart that while it resembled the periodic table of elements, is no where near as simple. Granted, most of that complexity doesn't apply to the iPhone controls... yet, but we're assuming its on its way.
