Opera-tic voices may sound on the iPhone

By |February 17th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , |

Opera is a web browser that is slowly gaining market share thanks to its many partnerships with mainstream companies like Nintendo, Adobe and many mobile phone makers. So, it's no surprise that they're working on an iPhone version. This week, they've been demoing the application at the Mobile World Congress event. Our sources say that the speed is remarkable and definitely blows away that of mobile Safari. However, it does not have the same "pinch-to-zoom" capabilities as mobile Safari which wou [...]

Apple let loose the 3.1.3 firmware update this morning. Here's what it includes: Improved accuracy of reported battery levels on the iPhone 3GS. Fixed an issue with some third-party applications that wouldn't launch. Fixed a bug that caused some applications to crash when using the Japanese Kana keyboard. If you are running Apple's unmodified iPhone OS, then feel free to press the update button. The iPhone Dev-Team is strongly encouraging people who are Jailbroken and Unlocked to stay away from [...]

Logitech introduces Touch Mouse for iPhone and iPod touch

By |February 1st, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

What exclamation of excitement is powerful enough for this app? “Are you f***ing serious? S**t, that’s awesome!” We’re trying to take deep breaths over here but we — honest to goodness — just packed away our home theater keyboard and mouse. 5 minutes had us controlling all 5 computers in the house with this. We’re actually typing this post from an iPhone… and now we’re done with that. Clicking the picture to the right will take you to the [...]

Apple removes fake Flash ads from the iPad promotional video

By |January 31st, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , |

Remember the speculative post we wrote about the fact that the iPad is showing Flash content in Apple's promotional video? Well, it's been replaced with a non-Flash version that shows the infamous blue lego. It appears as though we're never going to see Flash on the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch... especially with Steve's comments from the Apple town hall meeting. We're not terribly disappointed with Apple's decision to avoid Flash... we're more disappointed with the fact that most sites are using [...]

Cocoa Touch devices wallpaper

By |January 29th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , |

Cocoa Touch Apps designed a new wallpaper or desktop background to commemorate the iPad announcement. We used Apple’s high resolution PR pictures (we had to photoshop them a bit) to make this background. The max resolution is 3000px by 1668px, resize it as necessary — hopefully that will work for most of you. ;) We started with the iPad and then resized the iPhone and the iPod touch to scale. We’ve been dreaming of a Cocoa Touch tablet for over 1.5 years and Apple finally br [...]

Apple and AT&T remove VoIP 3G restrictions… Updated

By |January 28th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , |

After developers have had some (very little) time to dig through the new 3.2 SDK, iCall announced that it already has a 3G-capable Voice over Internet Protocol update in the store today. They also announced that Apple has removed the 3G VoIP restrictions in iPhone OS 3.2. We're not quite sure how they managed to get their app out so quickly, but mad props to them for being the first -- soon to be followed by, well, everyone. We haven't heard of iCall specifically, but we've known about Fring sin [...]

iPhone OS 3.0 Unlocked and Jailbroken

By |June 24th, 2009|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , |

Quick update here - Not much to it, but if you jailbreak, you'll like it. Go to blog.iphone-dev.com and download Redsn0w. You have to manually update to 3.0 via iTunes at this point, but if you're like me, you don't have a lot of jailbreak apps, just a couple themes that are easy to reapply. After updating to 3.0 - just run Redsn0w on your PC or mac, it'll do the whole jailbreak thing for you. After jailbreaking, add http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com to your repositories in either Cydia or ICY, sorry [...]

QuickPwn: Dev-Team Provides Easier Pwnage (Updated Again)

By |August 21st, 2008|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Just hours before Apple released the latest version of mobile device firmware, The iPhone Dev-Team released a completely new application called QuickPwn. Earlier today, they developed a very basic and rough, though functional, version of the software available — believe it or not — only for Windows as of now (There is a basic GUI version available now). Their intention was to improve the feelings in the Jailbreak Community so that not every release is Mac-only right away. Read mor [...]

Apple Can Kill Your Apps?

By |August 7th, 2008|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , |

Your guess is as good as ours, but Jonathan Zdziarski, the author of a recently published book — iPhone Forenzics — has discovered a URL hidden in a CoreLocation configuration file that suggests Apple could remotely delete any application from your iPhone or iPod Touch. Apple has suggested that they wanted to control each application that appeared on the Cocoa Touch platform in order to determine that it withheld the standards set by the SDK and that no Malicious software made it [...]
