Ακριβώς σε περίπτωση που το έχουν χάσει… κάνουμε τώρα podcasts (σκέφτομαι που είμαι αυτό που τους καλούμε!). Εν πάση περιπτώσει, εκείνοι σας από την πίσω--ο-ημέρα θυμούνται πιθανώς iPhone 101 καλά, έχει μετονομαστεί i101 (ξέρω, αντιγράφουμε συνολικά το μήλο), μικρότερο και που γίνεται συχνότερα. Θα είναι παρόμοιοι με το iPhone 101 δεδομένου ότι θα κάνουμε τις αναθεωρήσεις προϊόντων, app αναθεωρήσεις, συζήτηση για app τις αναπροσαρμογές, θα μείνουμε ενημερωμένοι για το jailbreak και θα ξεκλειδώσουμε τις ειδήσεις, τη συζήτηση για τις γενικές ειδήσεις… κ.λπ. Μόνο, αυτή τη φορά θα περιλάβει το iPhone, iPod αφή και το iPad… ως εκ τούτου i101. Τα επεισόδια παρουσιάζουν στην αριστερή πλευρά της αρχικής σελίδας επάνω στο πλαίσιο του χαρακτηρισμένου `τηλεοπτικού» τμήματος και στο blog… έτσι, χτυπούν εκείνο το κουμπί Blog! Ήμαστε έξω `ν για πέρα από τις διακοπές Σαββατοκύριακο αλλά, αρχίζουμε την υποστήριξη απόψε! Σας δείτε έπειτα!

are photos and videos of waiting in line at the Apple Store to get the iPhone 4. Doug says he will startstarted the stream around 6:00am CST. He waited in line since around 1:00am CST last night.
We’ll we’re here in line at the Apple Store at Jordan Creek Mall in Des Moines, Iowa. I woke up at about midnight and got everything all packed up. I’ve got a friend with me and we headed out. I’ve got a MacBook Pro with an AT&T cellular card, an iPad 3G, and my iPhone 3GS all with a lot of battery power and backup battery. Before I left home I checked out Twitter to see if anyone was here yet. Here’s the pic I found:
So far we’ve heard one crying baby and a guy throwing up so this should be an interesting night. It seems like there’s a decent mix of preorder and nonpreorders. I came to the store earlier in the day and they confirmed there were enough iPhones that I would get mine. I’m still waiting in line I’ll keep you update through this blog and Ustream live video streaming later in the morning.
I finally got an iPad! I had it on order on Apple.com and it wasn’t going to ship for another two weeks. I also had myself on a waiting list at my local Apple store just incase they came in before mine shipped. When I was put on the waiting list the lady told me it would be about a three week wait. Then, a couple days ago, I got this email:
We’ve finally ordered our new iPad 3G! Usually we have the iPhone right when it comes out but since the iPad costs more it took us a little longer to save up for it. I decided to order the 3G so we can test it out and so we can have data access whenever we need it. I also picked the 16GB version. I, of course, would like to have the 64GB version but for $200 more I decided to save that money to use for the new iPhone 4/4G/HD. Also, I looked at the storage right now on my iPhone 3GS and concluded I’d be fine with only 16GB.
Right now my iPhone has all my music on it that I own. I know, it’s not a lot but it is about 1,400 songs. I don’t think I”ll be putting any music on my iPad. I also have 312 apps which really don’t take a lot of room. My available capacity is 14.7 GB. I originally bought the 32GB iPhone 3GS so I wouldn’t be restricted on taking pictures and video. If I wanted to record a 30min clip, I didn’t want to be limited by space. On the iPad, I won’t be taking pictures or video so I won’t need that extra space. As for watching videos like movies, I probably won’t be ripping videos to my iPad. Most movies we watch are from Redbox so use a laptop or my 24″ iMac. Read more
If you didn’t know, when you visit our website from an iPhone or an iPod touch, the site changes it’s design automatically to fit better and speed things up. You can always switch it back to the full view but many like this more simple view to help make things faster. Here’s what it looks like right now:
Just a little update to our app. Matthew updated the icon so it’s the correct size. Before it was a little smaller than most icons. He’s also looking into speeding it up a bit. If you have any other ideas, let us know in the comments.
|Available In: Cydia||Price: Free|
Thanks to our number one fan, we now have an iPhone app! Matthew Batey tweeted me this morning and sent me these two screenshots of an app he made for us.
Right now it’s available through his source at http://web.me.com/matthewbatey/Matthew_Batey/Cydia and I’ve added that source to our Sources Page. He has some other stuff in there too so check it out! He’s submitted it to the BigBoss repo too. Read more
I’ve upgraded to the new 4.0 firmware and there are some sweet new features. I’ve have a lot of apps because we test so many so the new folders feature is great. It would be nice if you could select one of your app icons in the folder as the main folder icon. Otherwise everyone’s iPhones will just look like a bunch of folders.
Ok, so not all of my apps will be in folders, but it’s still not real pretty. With categories I could pick my own icon. And I could put more than 12 apps in a folder. The way the folders open and work is really kewl, but there are still limits. It is definitely easier to create and edit what’s in a folder in 4.0 than it is in categories. It opens faster and looks better too. Read more
Today we decided to visit the Apple store in our area to check out the new iPad. We went in about an hour after they opened and there was still a pretty big line. This is a picture of the line a friend of mine took just a little while before we got there.
Once we got there I asked the staff if I had to stand in line to buy something other than the iPad. She said no and that I could go right in and if I wanted I could look at an iPad. I went in and bought my Airport Extreme and checked out the iPad after I was done. It is very amazing and I can’t wait to get one. I did notice that it was a little heavier than I thought and my arm did get tired after standing and holding it for a while. Still, amazing. Anyway, while I was standing there showing it to my wife I saw the news videographer setting up for a shot inside the store. I told my wife and we tried to act normal. Later, I forgot all about it and someone ended up telling me on Facebook that they saw me on the 6:00 news. I caught a later airing and here’s the video and a screenshot from the few seconds we were famous… Read more
Now that all the Holiday craziness is over, we are getting back into the swing of things here at AiS. I hope everyone had a good Christmas. Doug got a $25.00 iTunes Gift Card in his stocking and he got a blue-tooth headset… other than that not a ton of iPhone accessories. Let us know in the comments if you got an iPhone, iPod touch or any cool accessories for Christmas!
2009 was a great year for the iPhone. I’ve put together some news, apps and hacks from 2009.
Verizon vs. AT&T
Starting with a commercial that attacked AT&T’s 3G coverage, Verizon released a series of commercials that compared the two networks and eventually the DROID vs. the iPhone. AT&T sued Verizon claiming the maps of AT&T’s network only showed 3G coverage which confused customers into thinking there was no coverage in blank areas of the map. AT&T eventually lost the lawsuit and then started in with their own commercials.
blacksn0w & blackra1n – jailbreak & unlock from Geohot
Geohot did it again, creating an jailbreak and unlock for the iPhone 3GS. Of course the cat and mouse game will continue in 2010 but with the addition of hardware encryption on the iPhone 3GS and Apple’s authorization process of each firmware before you can restore your iPhone, jailbreaking has become more difficult to develop.
Facebook iPhone App Developer Quits
The developer for the Facebook iPhone app announced he would no longer work on the iPhone app after getting fed up with Apple’s App Store process. Others at Facebook are still working on the app but this was a big PR blow to Apple’s app approval process.
Happy Thanksgiving from everyone here at AppleiPhoneSchool.com! We hope you get to spend the day relaxing and spending time with your family (and maybe watching a little football!). Doug and I traveled all last night with the boys to spend Thanksgiving with our families today. We totally used our iPhones to stay entertained during the drive! Doug used GPSTracker to embed our current location on his facebook and our personal website as we drove (and insisted on showing it to me every hour or so!) He did have to use Backgrounder to keep it running in the background.
P.S. Any old school jailbreaks remember what application the icon I used for this post is from??
We’ve been having issues not being able to add new posts to our forum. Viewers could comment on others, but not create a new post. I’ve discovered it was an update to MySQL on our server and I had to run a little repair on the database for the forum. To make a long story short, it’s fixed! Thanks to those who let me know!

Hey guys, you may have noticed that articles keep appearing, disappearing and reappearing from our website today. You are not going crazy (though, I thought I was for a while)… we are having some technical difficulties. We will get things back to normal as soon as possible. Doug does all that website building/fixing stuff so it’s up to him to fix it!
PS. For those of you wondering (Nate and Alan) why we would take a vacation in Wisconsin (we were on vacation last week)… it is because there is this ten mile stretch of nothing but apple trees and orchards that I love to go to! We go in the fall because the drive is absolutely beautiful and the orchards are at their prime. We did get snowed on this year which was crazy. Below is a pic (before it all melted). The only bad part about taking a vacation in the middle of nowhere is sketchy internet… it was terrible!
