iPhone 4 vs Android Captivate

An iPhone 4 user's experience with the Android 2.1 powered Samsung Captivate on AT&T

I’ll preface this by saying before this review, I’ve hardly laid hands on an Android device, let alone considered throwing my iPhone aside to completely delve into the OS and see if I could actually survive without my iPhone.  In my time with an Android device, the short answer would be that Android would be a perfectly passable everyday phone.  But would I make the switch and ditch my iPhone 4?

What Jailbreaking/Unlocking DMCA exception means for end users

The Library of Congress' DMCA exception for jailbreaking is big news for our community.  The new ruling basically says that jailbreaking or unlocking devices is not illegal.  But I think the bigger question on most people's minds is what that's going to mean for end users and the jailbreak community in general.  So what does this ruling mean for you, jailbreak ninjas? Read on to find out.

iOS 4.0.1 coming today?

iPhoneHellas.gr is claiming they've heard Apple will release iOS 4 later today. They've gotten that kind of stuff right before, and Apple does have an iPhone 4 press conference scheduled for tomorrow, so the timing would make some sense. iOS 4.0.1 being released would mean the changes to the way bars are shown and reported in the developer beta for iOS 4.1 would be public and could be stated as such by Apple.

It would be a couple weeks earlier than Apple's usual end of July/beginning of August iOS x.0.1 update cycle, but likely welcome by those suffering proximity sensor issues and other iOS 4 bugs.

Ping us if you're iTunes catches an update.

Apple SVP of iOS Software, Scott Forstall, has Twitter account

Apple's Senior Vice President of iOS Software, Scott Forstall has joined Twitter. His account is verified, so it's him and Twitter was told and knows it's him, but he's yet post any tweets.

Still, when Techcrunch caught wind of it last night, he had 3 followers (4 when I saw it) and as of this post he has 12,650ish. He's only following one person back -- that's right, he's with Coco.

Consistency, consistency, consistency

When someone starts writing it's not unusual for them to want to creative, to be un-boring, so when they have a character talk, that character "intimates", "whispers", "suggests", "exclaims" and otherwise enjoys every imaginable bit of literary variance the author can throw at them.

More seasoned writers tend to just stick with "said". When a character talks, it's "said", "said", "said". Over an over again. Page after page. Turtleneck after jeans. "Said", "said", "said". It's used so often it just disappears, the mechanics disappear, the author disappears, and all that's left is the character.

Apple's iOS has a pretty consistent user interface. It's not perfect by any stretch, but it's more consistent than its competitors. Occasional page curl in Maps aside, the basic ways you move around the iPhone are the same, Apple app after Apple app. (And anything that's not tends to get hidden away so power users can "discover it" and mainstream users can live their lives never having to be bothers by its existence).

When can we expect iOS 4.0.1 and iOS 4.1?

There's a rumor going around that iOS 4.0.1 and/or iOS 4.1 have been delayed by Apple in order to combat potential Jailbreaks.

Firstly, Apple is secretive to the point that no one outside the iOS team and top brass likely knows when they're planning on releasing any iOS update, ever. There are plenty of bugs like the antenna reception, the proximity sensor, 3G speeds, the camera roll, etc. that need to be fixed before it can even be scheduled. Everyone else is guessing or passing on heresy, including Apple Store employees, carrier reps, and internet aficionados.

Secondly, Apple is almost as cyclical as they are secretive, so while we don't know the precise day iOS 4.0.1 or iOS 4.1 will be released, we know when iOS x.0.1 and iOS x.1 have been released in the past.
