AT&T to start forcibly changing Jailbreak tether users to tiered plans on August 11?

Is August 11 the date when AT&T finally starts forcibly switching Jailbreak users who tether unofficially to limited, tiered plans? We knew AT&T was warning users tethering unofficially with apps like MyWi, and that they were threatening to take away their unlimited plans, but when they would start the process has always been a question.

The August 11 date comes from a 9to5Mac reader.

A Game With Balls now available for iPhone, iPad

The iPhone and iPad strategy game, A Game With Balls, by Edward DiNola, has been updated with Twitter, Facebook, and Game Center integration.

Balls rain from the sky. In a chaotic frenzy you attempt to destroy them to no avail. You resign to your fate. At the last moment your mind becomes clear and you begin to... understand. Why destroy them? Why not brush them aside, effortlessly? You transcend, a mystical shield arises from inside. Now a tap of your finger can solve anything...

  • One finger fires light balls, two fires heavy. Aim by tapping the screen! In tilt mode tapping the right side fires light balls and the left fires heavy!
  • If you’re not careful things can get too hectic, so firing a strategic small ball is often better than a pair of big ones!
  • Each theme has different gameplay mechanics, songs, balls, difficulty modes, and more! See how long you can survive in each!
  • Collect all the Game Center & Open Feint achievements to prove you’re a true Ball Master! Check out the leaderboards to compare your times against the world.

I've spent a little time with A Game With Balls and I enjoy it. I'm not a fan of games that require tilting of the device, so having the option between touch and tilt is greatly welcomed.

A Game With Balls is available on the iPhone and iPad for $0.99. Screenshots after the break.

Patent wars merely leveling the playing field against Google Android "dumping"?

Paul Thurrott of Windows Super Site is never one to let a good piece of anti-Apple link bait go by, but this time he's turned his attention towards Google's Android, and how Google "dumping" it on the market for free could be a greater anticompetitive act than Microsoft or Apple patent litigation.

Another probably fake iPhone 5 spy shot

A MacRumors forum member going by the handle guigsh posted the above photo(shop) in their forums this morning, claiming it was a spy shot of iPhone 5 taken in the office of a French operator. While we've seen spy shots of HP webOS devices under similar circumstances in the past, this one doesn't look much more believable than those [Chinese iClones we've been seeing lately].

A follow-up post from the thread author gives us the following information:
