Bluetooth Audio

There's a bug in the 1.1.1 firmware that lets you stream audio through bluetooth. It's not quite Stereo Bluetooth. It's essentially mono Bluetooth, but it brings some functionality, and may be useful for podcasts and the like. To get audio through Bluetooth:

  1. pair your Bluetooth, if you haven't done so already
  2. open Visual voicemail
  3. select 'Audio' at top right. If it doesn't say 'Audio,' reconsider step 1.
  4. It will bring up a dialogue box to choose sound output. Select your Bluetooth headset
  5. Presto! Enjoy your audio through both the speaker and your Bluetooth headset.

Dev Team Statement

The iPhone Dev Team, the same folks that have set the stage for 3rd party applications and more recently, the free iPhone unlock methods, released a statement via Erica Sadun of TUAW about Apple's positioning on the iPhone unlock and the possible bricking of iPhones. Their statement is to wait to install the patch if you've unlocked your iPhone; if you really need the update, they have a tool in the works that will restore your iPhone to its factory condition. The 'restore-to-factory-condition' tool would be useful for anyone that wanted to sell their iPhone and be assured that there's no personal information on the iPhone. The text of their statement is reproduced below:

Bookmarklet / Favelet Smorgasbord

So, yeah. Favelets and bookmarklets. In the podcast, I promised a review article about useful bookmarklets and favelets, for the iPhone. And here it is.

I've written a few simple bookmarklets as well; it seems a lot of the bookmarklets are designed for web editors, and not always so much for the average web user. I'm guessing that not many regular folks need to edit CSS from the iPhone, and those that do already have those bookmarklets synched over. But still, there's a void for popular sites. It seemed that all I found were eBay, Amazon, and Google sites. So I set out to make a few of my own, and edit a few others so that they'd work on iPhone Safari (henceforth, iSafari).

If you have any requests for a custom bookmarklet, put them in the comments. It has to be said that I make no guarantees that I can make the resulting request as I'm not an expert with javascript by any means, but the worst that can happen is that I say no. Okay, that's not the worst that can happen. The worst is that I say no VERY IMPOLITELY.

First 3rd Party App: Hello, World

The iPhone Dev wiki team ran the first 3rd party application on the iPhone. The program is a simple one, it spits out "Hello, World" when run; 'Hello, World' is typically one of the simpler things to program on most platforms and that it was chosen as the 1st app is unsurprising. Here's the notice they posted on their site:
