Welcome to iPhone 101, the best place for those of you who are new to the iPhone to learn the basics.
We all worry about misplacing our precious phones or, worse yet, having them stolen. Some may even worry about snoopers trying to read our private info when we're not looking. In case one of these things happen, you should really consider protecting all of your personal data on the device. TiPb has got you covered, to see how to passcode lock your iPhone read on after the break!
Coffee Buzz works like this: you have a list of people everywhere and nearby that are drinking coffee. You can tap on their name and the app will tell you where they are and what they drank. One of a couple of the nice enhancements in the new version is that you can create your own coffee drink and edit a location name. You can also use the app to search for local coffee places. So, if you are stuck somewhere and need a coffee fix, this is a handy app! It links the phone number, address and Google Maps; very convenient.
Do you use twitter? You can enter your twitter username and password to post what your drinking and where you are at. In today's world of tweets and status updates, this is a very welcome addition.
If you are looking for simple app to share your coffee lust, you can't go wrong with Coffee Buzz.
Lookee what Mobile Crunch has found, two early prototype iPhones are up for grabs on Ebay! Both a working model and dud (non-working) models can be yours... if the price is right!
The seller seems to have done his research, too. Based on the serial numbers, the working protoype was built in week 49 of 2006 while the dud was pushed off the factory line the following week. The OS that’s running is 03.06.01_G. Official iPhone OS that launched was 03.11.02_G. Bidding ends on March 11th and the highest bid is currently $315.
I wasn't at CES with CrackBerry Kevin and Smartphone Expert Dieter. I was at Macworld getting, you know, iPhone news. But even TiPb couldn't ignore the Pre and it's former-iPod/iPhone team designed goodness. So tempting is the Pre, in face, that we suspect iPhone and BlackBerry loyalists alike might stray from the fold to at least try it out come launch day (whenever that is). So, the question becomes, what to call them roving polygadetists? What matches up with CrackBerry or the Jesus Phone?

Yep, U2 has left the warm embrace of Apple (though Product Red iPods no doubt remain) for the harsh corporate sponsorship of RIM. Of course, they flirted briefly with Dell first, and Bono's Elevation Partners are huge backers of Palm -- though according to PreCentral.net they likely needed to spend their cash on far more serious things, like bringing the Pre to market... Still:
With the new hardware dropped last week, and an Apple Special Event still in the rumor-mill or March 24, we've naturally been hoping for a sneak peek at iPhone 3.0, just like we got for iPhone 1.0 and 2.0 for the past 2 years. But now Sevenmac.de (via MacRumors) is raining on our parade with a report of what the even might actually focus on:
software. More precisely, Apple's video Pro Apps should receive updates or see new versions.
The Consumerist posted a interesting little story that caught our attention. It goes something like this: A customer replaced his 8 GB iPhone 3G with a 16 GB model within the first month of his service. After receiving his new iPhone 3G, it was later stolen. Now he is not being allowed to purchase a new iPhone 3G from AT&T and Apple. Keep in mind he intends to pay the full, unsubsidized price of the phone but it seems AT&T may think he's unlocking these phones. Here is the consumers letter:
