EVENT IS OVER…
Today should be the big day for the new iPhone to be released. The WWDC, World Wide Developers Conference, is where the other iPhones have been announced and revealed. Of course, this time there was a major leak and we already know what the phone will look like. I’m gonna vote on the name iPhone HD. With the higher resolution screen and higher megapixel camera this makes me think iPhone High Definition sounds good. [Read more...]
Now, this is crazy cool! Many of you may have already seen this but, I just had to post it anyway! At WWDC it seems that Apple has decided to give developer’s a little perspective on how well apps are doing in the App Store. They have set up a wall of screens displaying many of the apps available in the App Store. What makes this really cool is that the apps are arranged by color and each time one is downloaded from the App Store, it pulses. It is not quite real time and not all the 50,000+ apps are represented on the screens but, it still looks really sweet. Check out the video and screenshots below. [Read more...]

Tomorrow is the big day! As you can see on the right, there are only a few hours left until the big announcement. What’s going to be announced? Well, I have my opinions…
I’m pretty confident that the name of the 3rd iPhone will be called “iPhone Video”. There’s strong evidence in the iPhone 3.0 Beta firmwares to support this:
This screenshot seems pretty real to me. It would make total sense to have one app run both the still image camera and the video camera. Just toggling the switch into video mode would change the button to a red dot kinda like the red light on the front of most video cameras.
There’s a lot more that goes along with video, one of the best is a new camera/lens. A big rumor is an upgrade to the camera to 3.2MP and the addition of auto focus. This would be really nice for me because right now I carry a DSLR and a Flip Video along with my iPhone. I would like the iPhone to replace the Flip. I doubt it will ever replace the big digital camera. I NEED ZOOM!
Other screenshots show MobileMe video features and even one with buttons that allow for minor editing of the video right on the iPhone. A big wish of mine is the front facing camera to make video phone calls. This seems to good to be true. Maybe someday with the 4G/LTE network. I really do think there will be video recording with the new iPhone. [Read more...]
Ok, this is why it sucks to live in Iowa. I am totally going to miss out on this party (unless someone wants to sponsor me, it’s only $500 round trip with hotel/air/car rental). It looks like some sweet apps are going to be demoed and of course it’s a great way to hook up with other developers before the big WWDC events. To RSVP you need to go to iphonelaunchparty.com The login info is u:vip p:earlysignup
Some of the apps being previewed are Delicious Library, Convert, Grunts, Plasma, and iSamurai. [Read more...]

I found this auction on eBay of a t-shirt and laptop bag from the WWDC 2008. I would probably bid on it if I wasn’t going to be buying a 3G iPhone soon! I found something pretty interesting. The t-shirt had the icons from the iPhone on it. The time is 10:00 and the date is June 9th. iPhone, 10:00, June 9th… The stock clock icon on the iPhone is set at 9:40. Could this be a hint at the announcement of the 3G iPhone? If so, maybe I will bid!
UPDATE: I bid $25 and got out bid right away :( I’m sure there will be more :)
UPDATE 2: I found another one, this one starts at $75 and has a buy it now of $99. Check out the map icon too!
If you read our news page you already know most of this info because everyone is talking about it. Now of course Apple hasn’t announced this but there are so many signs like this internal memo from UK carrier O2:
“Due to the highly successful sales of the Apple 8GB iPhone, supply chains have run out of stock and will not be replenishing stock of this product as it has now gone to end of life.”
The 3G iPhone will most likely be announced during the WWDC, June 9th – 13th with sizes of 16GB & 32GB and minor design changes. Rumor lists include true GPS, thinner design and camera in front (video chat).
