Okay, today was a little hectic because of iPhone 3.0’s release. The improvements are notable, and worth the wait! (We’ll have a review up soon)
To start off, Apple has commented that “they are aware that 3rd parties are using their software, and at any time that software may not work as expected due to software updates”. Obviously, Apple is calling Palm out here, almost yanking the already short leash Palm is on with iTunes. Palm returned with “we aren’t afraid and will do what is necessary to keep flawless syncing alive” Ugh.
AT&T has also reconsidered the plans for iPhone 3G owners. Those who would be eligible in July through September can get the discounted price ($199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB) on the iPhone 3G S. Yay. Did I mention MMS and Tethering still aren’t available?
Tweet Deck for iPhone is also out. For those of you who don’t Tweet like your fellow tech community, Tweet Deck is an extensive desktop application for Twitter, built off of the Adobe Air platform for both Mac + PC. The application is quite amazing, and it’s free. First reports from the users say that Tweet Deck is fun, snappy, and worth the price of FREE and it even syncs with it’s desktop counterpart!
For all of those fans who would like their online gaming to-go, NGMoco (creators of Topple for iPhone) are expected to release their version of Xbox-Live for the iPhone tomorrow. The app, Ngmoco +, will allow gamers to create profiles, keep track of friends, records and gaming history across multiple games. It’ll be completely free.
Lastly, there are still some hackers out there, well, at least some 10 year old kids who think they know how to hack, still wishing that they could keep their jail broken iPhone. The iPhone Dev Team have put together “ultrasn0w” which is slated to unlock, jail break, and mystify your iPhone once again.
