Pretty handy list a-la-Lifehacker. I particularly like this simple hack for listening to music/podcasts from your phone in the kitchen:
I usually don’t like civilian mock-ups because they set my expectations a little too high. But this just looks too awesome to not reblog.
I love the idea of augmenting the same camera you use day-to-day with better optics.
This is a designer’s mock-up, but I think Apple should hire this guy and get the iCam into production as soon as feasible.
Ever since I bought the original iPhone in 2007, there’s been one app above all others that I’ve been sorely missing: Gmail. Of course, back then, there were no native third-party apps. But a year later, when those came, Gmail was still nowhere to be found.
At first, the talk was that Apple wasn’t going to allow another mail app on their device. Then it was that Google was simply focusing on the mobile web (they’ve had a pretty good mobile web version of Gmail for a while). Then it was the strained (to put it mildly) relationship between Google and Apple. Still, other Google iPhone apps came. But never a Gmail one.
The slightly disappointing news today from Apple that the big new iPhone is simply a beefed up iPhone 4 and not a truly new model has me seriously considering hunkering down for the long haul.
The good news is I could get a replacement for my bum-headphone-jack-and-missing-lock-button 2 year old 3GS for $0 (and so can you!!!)
The bad news is that it’s only 8GB instead of the 32GB I have now.
I’m seriously considering a year long experiment with iTunes Match to make up for the lack of storage on a replacement 3GS until the iPhone 5 comes out.
It’s not that I dislike the 4S at all really. It’s just that I’m afraid the iPhone 5 will come out 6 months after I fork over the cash. And I really, really wanted a bigger screen…
Last Friday night, California’s Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team entered editor Jason Chen’s home without him present, seizing four computers and two servers. They did so using a warrant by Judge of Superior Court of San Mateo.
PayPal has come full circle. What started as a PalmPilot app that let users wirelessly exchange money has evolved into an iPhone app that lets users wirelessly exchange money.
However, whereas Palm users relied on IR “beaming” to shoot funds back and forth, iPhone owners can simply “bump” their phones
