New iPhone Commercial: Shazam

New iPhone Commercial: Shazam

This is a huge coincidence since we just had our App vs App: Shazam vs Midomi on TiPB. I love these commercials since they are so simple and really show what the iPhone can do. Well, since I think most carbon-based life forms know what the iPhone is, it is time for Apple to show how the App Store's apps can make a difference in your life.

Puzzlotto Prize Claimed at $8,000!

Puzzlotto Prize Claimed at $8,000!

It was a simple enough contest. Buy Puzzlotto from United Lemur and try to solve it. Every day that passed without someone winning added $1000 to the pot, with a upper limit of $30,000.

Turns out, however, it only lasted 8 days. Says United Lemur:

Dave H, from Portland, is our new Puzzllotto Champion! Once the independent judges are done verifying, Dave will receive the Champion's Trophy and $8,000 in prize money. Congratulations once again to Dave!

Might idea for a contest from a mighty company for a mighty game.

Congrats!

Around SPE - 9 Nov 2008

Around SPE - 9 Nov 2008

This week's Around SPE is sponsored by the the TiPb iPhone Accessory Store, which has long been your best source for iPhone accessories. A lot of iPhone 3G upgraders were left out in the cold when their car chargers turned out to not be compatible, but they've got plenty that are, not to mention plenty of headphones that are a step up compared to the standard white buds

Last week both CrackBerry.com and WMExperts found themselves on the cusp of major releases -- the BlackBerry Storm, BlackBerry Bold on AT&T, the HTC Fuze on AT&T, not to mention a few others on the Windows Mobile side. So while everybody has been anticipating new devices, all of the editors at SPE are anticipating something else that will be starting on November 17th. The hint is right up there in the picture!

Read on for the full skinny on what's been happening around SPE!

Phone Different Podcast #30

Phone Different Podcast #30

This week: Google Earth, Contest updates, iPhone developer noodling, and your emails. Listen in!

(Update: If you're hearing weird things happen at about halfway through, your Podcast downloader is especially aggressive and caught an upload that somehow managed to get 2 of our SPE podcasts mixed wrongly. GarageBand FAIL. We've uploaded the proper version -- delete the podcast from iTunes (or whatever podcatcher your use) and re-subscribe to get it.)

Homebrew iPhone External Keyboard

Homebrew iPhone External Keyboard

Dying for an external keyboard on your iPhone? Well, you're in luck! This proof of concept shows that if you're an electrical engineering genius -- or more likely a teenager -- you can hack together one of your very own! Engadget says this solution involves Ruby code on a jailbroken iPhone, so it's definitely not plug n'play (or better yet, Blue Tooth!) so for now only the hardcore need apply.

Anyone want to try it?

Apple Slimming Down AC Adapter Recall Packaging?

19

Apple Slimming Down AC Adapter Recall Packaging?

When Apple began their recall program for the iPhone 3G AC adapters, some noted that the massive packaging the new adapters were sent in seemed to be running in stark opposition to Apple's newly stated "greener" goals.

Ginormous would be one word for them. Wasteful, another.

Could things have changed however? While we received three of the huge boxes only a couple of weeks ago, this week we received two much smaller padded envelopes instead. Did Apple and/or their shipping company respond to the concerns, or just realize how insane the previous packaging was?

Anybody else getting the newer, slimmed-down packaging? Anyone still getting the huge boxes?

New iPhone Commerical: Loopt

New iPhone Commerical: Loopt

Saw this online last night, and you have to give Apple's advertising gurus credit: they know how to show off the App Store. Never once do they get bogged down in the tech-talk quagmire of Social Network or Location Based services, nor do they trade comical barbs like their Mac Switcher ads.

iPhone ads show cool things being done easily. Case in point, the latest spot featuring Loopt.

Stay in touch with your friends. That's the iPhone. Done.

Maybe that's why the iPhone ranks #1 in satisfaction?

The iPhone is a great phone and an awesome entertainment device, but it's also a great tool for a variety of things, including an excellent travel companion.

2.2 Firmware Jailbroken by the Dev Team Already?

2.2 Firmware Jailbroken by the Dev Team Already?

Now does this really come as a surprise to anyone out there? Well it comes as no surprise for all of us here at TiPb that the Dev Team has jailbroken the latest 2.2 firmware beta released by Apple to developers. Not too shabby, and it should make all of you out there happy to know that the wait to jailbreak the 2.2 firmware will not be long! Short and painless. Now remember this is a beta right now so Apple may make some changes that can toss a wrench into the Dev Team's work but seriously how long would that slow them down? A day or two? Props to the Dev Team, they have yet to let us down.
