Apple to Exploding iPhones: Screen Pressure not Battery to Blame

Apple to Exploding iPhones: Screen Pressure not Battery to Blame

Apple has finished their investigation in the case of the exploding iPhones/Pods and the results are not shocking - the battery malfunction theory has been rejected. It was first rumored that defective batteries were more than likely the cause of the devices going boom but as it turns out, excess force was the reason - according to Apple.

blockquote>"The iPhones with broken glass that we have analysed to date show that in all cases the glass cracked due to an external force that was applied to the iPhone."

Convertbot 1.4 for iPhone Rejected by App Store Because Same "Time" Icon Now Confusable for "Recents"

Convertbot 1.4 for iPhone Rejected by App Store Because Same "Time" Icon Now Confusable for "Recents"

Convertbot [$0.99 - iTunes link] has seen their latest update, version 1.4 for iPhone (and iPod touch), rejected by at least 2 of Apple's 40+ App Store reviewers because the icon they're using for "Time" (the same icon they've been using since 1.0, mind you) is nigh-identical to Apple's built in "Recent" icon, and that was enough to raise that troublesome "user confusion" flag at iTunes HQ.

Metro Paris, London Bus, Yelp! -- Augmented Reality Apps Appearing Now in App Store

Metro Paris, London Bus, Yelp! -- Augmented Reality Apps Appearing Now in App Store

Presslite, the folks behind Métro Paris [$0.99 - iTunes link] and London Bus [$0.99 - iTunes link] for iPhone let us know that their apps are now updated in the App Store to contain... augmented reality!

For those unfamiliar with the concept, basically it uses the iPhone 3GS compass, GPS, and live video (what the camera sees) to figure out where you are and what you're looking at, and then adds an information layer (text, icons, etc.) on top of the live video to expound upon what you're looking at. For example, bus routes and schedules could be layered over a street corner, hotel room rates and vacancy over a building, Twitter status in the direction of a person you follow, etc.

Yelp! 3.0 [Free - iTunes link] has apparently also gotten into the AR game but through an Easter Egg that is activated when you run the app and then shake the iPhone 3 times. Check out Mashable's video after the break!

(Thanks to Nicolas and Frank for the extra info!)
