Last night's iPhone Live! was pretty darn good -- so good, in fact, that it created a cross-border, pan-dimensional bug that kept us from recording the first 20 minutes properly. We recapped it a bit, but those who it hit it up live got a special treat. Rest assured, though, we have more than enough to talk about with the new Kindle iPhone App, what it means for Apple, Amazon, and when it might go international - so if you missed iPhone Live!, go ahead and check out this here podcast.
Not sure if it will be available via the new iPhone Kindle App, but there's lots of other ways to get PDF's on your iPhone these days, and if you have a deep curiosity about iPhone forensics, and are looking for 101 pages on it, Andrew Hoog of Chicago E-Discovery has you covered:
The white paper reveals the vast amount of personal information stored on Apple’s iPhone and reviews techniques and software for retrieving this information. Consumers and corporations have a legitimate concern over confidential information and its unauthorized release or use.

Jennifer, from our sibling site PreCentral.net is a recent Kindle 2 adopter and so eager is she to get her geek on the Pre and it's potential Kindle App, she decided to take the iPhone version for a test drive. What were her thoughts? Looks great! More:
CrackBerry.com is reporting that BlackBerry maker RIM has finally settled on a name for their version of the App Store: App World.
See, it's not a place to buy applications, it's a planetary system where apps spawn and live SIM lives, and... argh. Who knows?
RIM is expected to spin it 'round their sun some time tonight. Given that BlackBerry's can only store applications on the tiny sliver of internal RAM left after the OS and filesystem have taken their share (estimated to be 50-100 megs as opposed to 7-15GB on the iPhone), it's likely to be a small, small App World after all.
The Belkin TuneCast Auto with ClearScan for iPhone 3G is available and can be purchased in iMore Store for $79.95. If you are looking for a charger/ FM transmitter in one for your iPhone, this might be for you. Let’s see how it measures up after the break!
Ouch. Don't know what else to say. Verizon told Apple they didn't want the iPhone so Apple went to AT&T (and the mostly GSM world still thanks Jobs for that). To make up for it, Verizon -- almost 2 years later -- rushed the BlackBerry Storm to market. Still, during the iPhone 3G's second quarter, it outsold the BlackBerry Storm in the US by almost 2 to 1 (1.9 million activations on AT&T vs. 1 million in sales on Verizon).
A few weeks back we introduced you to a little Jailbreak app called xGPS. This is the first app available to bring turn-by-turn directions to your iPhone. It has just been updated to version 1.2 and seems to be much more polished overall. The biggest improvement is this version is of course, voice instructions support. To those of you who have not interested in Jailbreaking, are you tempted now?
