iPhone OS 4.0 unveiled

leave a comment »

Apple unveiled their much-hyped iPhone OS 4.0 operating system today. The new OS will include long-awaited features such as multi-tasking for third party applications, camera improvements (5x digital zoom & touch to focus video), and other add-ons.

Apple has only released a dev kit for the new OS and will ship out to iPhone/iPod touch customer in the summer with iPad customers following in the fall. However, 1st/2nd gen Touch owners as well as pre-3GS iPhone owners will be sad to hear that features like multi-tasking will not be available if they choose to upgrade. boohoo.

Apple to hold iPhone OS event on Thursday

leave a comment »

A little late on the news, but the Vicious Blog was a little slow yesterday. Apple is going to be holding an even on Thursday at 10:00AM PT/ 1:00PM ET to show a “sneak peak of the next generation of iPhone OS software.”

From what sammyVicious can gather from the rumor mill, it looks like the new OS is going to focus mostly on the new iPad, but this event should be interesting enough. I mean, its Apple.

An awesome iPhone stand

leave a comment »

A pretty cool stand for your iPhone/iPod Touch when you’re stuck at a desk. It only costs $5 for a pack of 2 (plus shipping, use IREADFAQ for 5% off, special designs available for $6), but its one of those things you’d pay more for a crappier substitute, but are kind of hesitant to pay $5 for since you can probably make one yourself.

The best thing about this is that you can take with your on the go cuz it would fit in-between your iPhone and its case. See demo videos below:

Check out my friend’s cover of Telephone. Its pretty crazy what a person can do with just an iPhone these days.

This other dude went even crazier with just one app (Everyday Looper)

iPhone soon to be available out of contract

leave a comment »

But it’s still only usable with an AT&T sim card, unless you unlock it. Also, remember that w/o a contract, you’re gonna get the amazing unsubsidized price of $EXPENSIVE.

Ridiculously Fast iPhone Typist Shames Soft Keyboard Haters – Fastest iphone typist – Gizmodo

leave a comment »

How sick is this? This guy types 81wpm on his IPHONE.

Ignore the end of the video where he talks about resistive vs. capacitive screens. the reason why the iphone soft keyboard is good is because of the software, not the screen.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
