iTunes 8 Vista BSOD Fixed + iPhone 2.1 Breaks MobileMe Push?

iTunes 8 Vista BSOD Fixed + iPhone 2.1 Breaks MobileMe Push?

Apple has posted a support document to help those users (including many of those here at TiPb) who have been experiencing the dreaded BSOD (blue screen of death) when hooking up an iPhone or iPod to iTunes 8.

The solution? Uninstall iTunes and the MobileMe control panel, and reinstall the new version. Seems most people being affected have HP peripherals or Logitech drivers. I have neither, and my Vista install went fine, but if anyone did have the problem, please let us know if that fixed it!

Meanwhile, a couple of us here at TiPb have noticed that, apres-2.1, our MobileMe email is decidedly less pushy. We're deleting and recreating the account on our iPhone's, but no joy so far.

Eye-Candy or All-Seeing Eye? iPhone Effects a Security Risk?

Eye-Candy or All-Seeing Eye? iPhone Effects a Security Risk?

Apple has past mastered using animation to aid both usability and fill transitions. An example of the latter is the "shrink" effect used when you hit the home button: whatever's currently on diminishes to nothingness and the home screen icons fly back into place. To do this effect, however, the iPhone takes a quick screen shot, and then uses the built in CoreGraphics/Animation layers to rapidly scale it down.

Tip o' the Week: Better iPhone Syncing

Tip o' the Week: Better iPhone Syncing

Coming from a background of Palm and Windows Mobile PDAs and phones, it's taken a bit of getting used to that, while syncing my iPhone, I have enough time to eat dinner, watch a football game, play a game of Risk, and still return to my Mac in plenty of time to watch my sync complete. Heaven forbid I get a phone call mid-sync. Ok, I exaggerate (a little). You may have noticed lengthy sync times (backing up is a killer) for your iPhone. If not, count yourself lucky. Join me after the break for a tip that may make things a little easier for your iPhone syncing!

Counter Strike: Apple Fires Back at Jailbreakers!

ZOMG! Apple has fought back! The only way Apple can fix the exploit that the iPhone Dev Team has been using to Jailbreak iPhone's and iPod Touch's (check out our forums for more on that) is to fix their hardware, but it seems Apple has figured out a way to program iTunes 8 to detect and prevent the Pwnage exploit.

Apple may have won that battle but they have not won the war. The Dev Team reacted promptly:

Web App Review: SpreedNews

Web App Review: SpreedNews

The news used to be more simple. You had your choice of three major television networks, newspaper, magazines, or radio. Twenty-four-hour cable news was yet to come and the Internet was not even a glimmer in Al Gore's eye. If the constant bombardment of information via satellite broadcast wasn't enough to overwhelm the mere mortal, along came the Internet with the rise of blogging (ahem) and countless web sites feeding information. Something had to be done to make information easier to digest for the busy person on the go, and Spreed:News uses an innovative way to deliver it. Read on for the review!
