The true iPhone killer revealed

iphone-killer-200

Nokia didn’t make it, nor HTC – not even Motorola; this device unlike the last iPhone killer is a block of laser cut steel finished with a beautiful mahogany axe handle. The designer thought he would poke fun at all the company’s trying to take on Steve Jobs, so he decided to make a tool to destroy one thing and one thing only; the iPhone.

Review: HTC DROID Incredible is the iPhone killer

htc-incredible-014

This week, I’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with the new DROID Incredible by HTC. Being an iPhone user myself, enslaved by AT&T, I look at the Droid (and Verizon) through the eyes of a newbie to the whole experience. From the moment I took this little Incredible piece of tech out of the box, I was blown away at what life could be like without an iPhone….not bad.

Wi-Fi Sync wirelessly syncs jailbroken iPhones with iTunes

wifisync-200

Wi-Fi Sync is an app for the iPhone that allows you to sync your iTunes library on your Mac over a Wi-Fi connection; the clincher, it has to be jailbroken. Apple doesn’t allow wireless syncing for god knows what reason, but if they were planning on it than we would have probably heard of it in the iPhone OS 4 update. Until then, you will have to resort to seedy methods; the app sells for $10 from the hacked app store Cydia. A program similar to Wi-Fi Sync was started back in 2007 called uSync, it required executing shell scripts and libs: “SVN GTKPod/libgpod and SVN GNUPod (with a couple extra modifications),” and hasn’t gone anywhere since.

Another iPhone 4G lost, this time dismantled too

iphone4g-lost-again-01

Apparently, there’s more than one inebriated Apple employee going around forgetting secret prototype cell phones in bars. Another iPhone 4G (iPhone HD? 4th-gen iPhone? Whatever you want to call it) has leaked its way onto the Internet and it seems to be a little further down the development cycle than the one Gizmodo nabbed some time back.

This time around, a Vietnamese forum (Taoviet.vn) has posted several pictures of the supposedly leaked fourth-generation Apple iPhone.

Three-quarters of Japanese smartphones are Apple iPhones

iphone-japan.200

You know, before the iPhone launched in Japan, I thought it was going to be a disappointment for Steve Jobs and Apple. It wouldn’t be a flop, but I didn’t think it would achieve the same level of market penetration as it was able to enjoy in the United States. Oh boy, was I wrong.

A study conducted by MM Research Institute has revealed that the iPhone has a 72.2% market share in Japan. There are 2.34 million iPhones in the land of the rising sun, representing a dominating force among smartphones.

Gamelink wants to stream porn to Steve Jobs’ iPhone

porn-on-iphone.200

Apple has all sorts of stringent restrictions for what is fair game for the App Store. Just about any app that involves female body parts are very likely to get a big red stamp of disapproval. Well, Gamelink is prepared to “go there” and offer Steve Jobs a change.

During the iPhone 4.0 OS event this month, the Apple head honcho mentioned the “porn store for Android” where you can “download nothing but porn.” He quickly quipped that this is “a place we don’t want to go – so we’re not going there.” He was later quoted as saying that “folks who want porn can buy an Android phone.”

Video: Hacker runs Google Android on first-gen iPhone

Hacker runs Google Android on Apple iPhone

Just because you have an Apple iPhone doesn’t mean that you need to restrict yourself to the iPhone OS. Just as people have been able to hack their Windows Mobile smartphones to run on alternate operating systems, it seems that the iPhone is worthy for some hacking as well.

In the video below, you’ll see that “planetbeing” has been able to modify his first generation Apple iPhone to run Google Android. I don’t know why you would want to put Android on an iPhone (why not just buy an Android phone?), but it is an exercise in what is possible.

What will the iPhone 4 actually look like?

iphone4g-latest.01

We saw the images and video from Gizmodo getting a hold of the lost Apple smartphone prototype from California bar, but is that the real design? Or just a shell to hide all the inner-goodness of what is to come? Designer Antonio De Rosa believes this is not the real iPhone 4G that we saw, but a cheap clever disguise in order for engineers to field test the next-generation Apple device. “If you want my opinion, the shell of that 4G was only a temporary case, because the 2 circular buttons for the volume are very ugly. If it was the real version, Apple may need to change the design after we’ve seen them on Gizmodo.”

App Beast provides 60 utils for $1 on the iPhone

One of the coolest things about having an iPhone is all the available utility apps. From battery meters, calendars, currency converters, to translators – they are great features to have on hand and can be very useful in many situations.

A new utility app called App Beast was released on iTunes that promises over 60 utility apps for the price of one.
