Got "Fetch"? POP/IMAP Email Broken in iPhone 2.1?

Got "Fetch"? POP/IMAP Email Broken in iPhone 2.1?

As opposed to "push" style ActiveSynch, MobileMe, or Yahoo! iPhone mail, traditional POP or IMAP accounts, like Gmail or ISP mail, needs to "fetch", or check the server on a certain schedule to see if there are new messages.

Reader Mike wrote in pointing us to a thread on the Apple Discussion Forums about "fetch" email being broken with iPhone 2.1. I only fetch mail from Gmail, and Gmail IMAP is a strange and buggy implementation which gives me considerable problems beyond the iPhone, so I can't say whether anything is really broken or not in 2.1.

PdaNet Now Available -- via Jailbreak

PdaNet Now Available -- via Jailbreak

I've gone ahead and followed Jeremy's excellent iPhone Jailbreak instructions for one specific reason: the ability to install PdaNet on my iPhone for tethering. PdaNet let us know, along with reader Lawton, that they've given up waiting for App Store approval (which will likely never come anyway) and have gone ahead and released their application for jailbroken iPhones. You can get the full skinny here.

Apple Changes iPhone App Store Customer Review System

Apple Changes iPhone App Store Customer Review System

Apple has made a vital change to the App Store, in order to review an app you now have to actually have downloaded it first. All I have to say is... it's about time!

This brilliant idea (that should have been in place since day one!) means we no longer have to read reviews from people who have never tried the app out -- or don't even own a iPhone or iPod Touch!

iPhone 3G in Canada: FutureShop Soon Selling?

iPhone 3G in Canada: FutureShop Soon Selling?

FutureShop is actually owned by Best Buy (which is why they typically build the stores across the street from each other -- nothing like being your own competition!), so when their big US brother started selling the iPhone 3G, we supposed it was only a matter of time before Canada got some big box love.

iPhone in HK: 3G, WiFi, and... Unlocked? Ho-a!

iPhone in HK: 3G, WiFi, and... Unlocked? Ho-a!

Who said iPhone's "don't hit back"?

The Boy Geniuses Report that while China may be eunuch-izing their iPhone, the special administrative zone which is Hong Kong will be getting the full on 3G, and unlocked to boot. So any Mainlanders dreading the "just no internet" model are only a hop, skip, and ferry away from "freedom" (and the US$692/$794 price tags that goes along with it).

Do-Tse, Apple!

Anyone planning on picking up one of these little dragons?

iPhone 2.2: Safari Tweaked, Cut and Paste Freaked?

iPhone 2.2: Safari Tweaked, Cut and Paste Freaked?

Wired's blog picked up a story from iPhone Atlas today about a minor MobileSafari browser UI change that sees the (defaults to Google) search box surfaced right on top beside the URL address box (currently it only pops up when the top box is activated to save on vertical real estate). To compensate, the Refresh button gets demoted and tucked inside the refresh box. Not sure about the usability on this change yet...?

iPhone Gaming: Block Breaker Deluxe Developers Speak!

iPhone Gaming: Block Breaker Deluxe Developers Speak!

With all the hubbub surrounding the App Store these days, the blogophiles among us may forget that, for casual users, everything is pretty sweet. Browse. Tap. Download. Launch. For mobile gaming fans this is especially true. Check out the Top Apps list, and you'll routinely see games hogging most of the spots. Don't think this has escaped attention either. Says Block Breaker Deluxe (available via the iTunes App Store) developer Gameloft:

Why No iPhone 3G Unlock / New iPod Touch Jailbreak? And 2.2 Already Pwnd?

Why No iPhone 3G Unlock / New iPod Touch Jailbreak? And 2.2 Already Pwnd?

Did Apple finally bring the hounds to the old iPhone jailbreak/unlock cat and mouse game?

Maybe. It's been over 2 months and while the miraculous iPhone DevTeam has jailbroken the iPhone 3G, unlocking the device to work on any carrier has thus far eluded them. Likewise, the brand new iPod Touch -- which might be a sign of things to come with the next iPhone as well -- has proven more resistant to Jailbreaking. Says the DevTeam:
