10/30/2011, When the iPhone 4S was released, developers worked on getting Siri ported to the iPhone 4 immediately. While they managed to get the app running on the phone, it couldn’t connect to Apple’s servers and had to resort to using alternatives such as Google or TellMe to get the job done. But now, those problems have been solved: some developers have managed to get the hacked version of Siri communicating […]
10/28/2011, If the prospect of adding bulk to your iPhone 4 in the form of a case does not appeal to you, and you’re not willing to drop hundreds of dollars for ColorWare’s customization of your iPhone, a company called Sirtified has the answer for you in the form of their iTat tattoo for the iPhone. It’s not really a casing and it doesn’t appear to protect anything but it does […]
10/25/2011, There exists malware for computers that log keystrokes, which is used to determine passwords and credit card numbers. There also exists malware on our smartphones that log calls and text messages, but interestingly a team of researchers at Georgia Tech managed to use the iPhone 4 to log keystrokes from a keyboard simply by placing the device near the user’s keyboard.

10/21/2011, Instagram has got to be one of the most popular camera/photo sharing apps around. When most third-party services are even struggling to get a cult status, Instagram has its own following of third-party services! And now, joining the ranks of Stickygram and Postagram, we have a service called Casetagram. This time around, we get a service that takes your Instagram photographs and then transform them into a custom-made iPhone 4/4S […]
10/20/2011, Uh-oh. It looks like Sprint could be in trouble. After happily reporting that it broke all sales records last week for the launch of the iPhone on its network, now that it’s finally available – it seems that its networks are starting to feel the strain. Just like AT&T’s 3G network when the iPhone was introduced, it’s Sprint’s turn to suffer from the sudden influx of new customers. Ever since […]
10/19/2011, Siri is what sets the iPhone 4S apart from the iPhone 4, and it appears that there are some who are wondering why Siri wouldn’t be able to work on the iPhone 4 or the iPad 2. A week ago we reported that porting Siri over to the iPhone 4 would be equivalent of piracy, but that has not stopped iOS developers from attempting to port it over anyway. The […]
10/17/2011, Apart from Apple’s brand new iPhone 4S featuring an A5 dual-core processor, one of the features boasted by Apple regarding the iPhone 4S is its supposed longer lasting battery, which we guess can help seal the deal for some who may be worried about battery life on their smartphones. Unfortunately based on tests conducted by iLounge during their review of the phone, revealed that the supposed longer lasting battery only […]
10/15/2011, As we mentioned in our earlier coverage, Siri was initially developed outside Apple at the SRI, and the original Siri app worked just fine on an iPhone 4, although it was never integrated the way it is in iOS 5. It is fair to say that the lack of Siri support on iPhone 4 is probably a way for Apple to differentiate the iPhone 4S from the iPhone 4. Steven […]
10/14/2011, It’s no surprise that the iPhone has the capability to move units and Sprint got to experience it for the first time today. As you all know by now, Sprint has been left out of the iPhone party over the past few years, due to AT&T’s exclusivity deal which only ended earlier this year. Verizon was the second carrier in the US to pick it up, and with the launch […]
10/14/2011, If you’re looking for an iPhone case which combines a battery pack and a projector all rolled into one, the Japanese accessory maker, Century, might have just what you’re looking for in the form of the Monolith casing for the iPhone 4.
10/12/2011, One of the reasons why some people prefer using their Blackberry devices is due to its physical keyboard layout, which some might argue is superior over an on-screen keyboard. Some Android manufacturers might have acknowledged that fact by putting out smartphones with both on-screen and a physical keyboard, but Apple has remained firm in their resolve in sticking with the on-screen keyboard.
10/11/2011, I guess it is fitting that at long last, we have closure of the lost iPhone 4 saga from more than a year ago. Jason Chen, editor at Gizmodo when everything happened, is said to be immune from prosecution thanks to journalism protection laws. As for the two people who sold the phone to Gizmodo’s staff, Brian Hogan and Sage Wallower, well their lucky stars failed to shine. Or perhaps […]
10/10/2011, Forget how “disappointing” the iPhone 4S announcement was – if pre-order figures are anything to go by, it looks like Apple has yet another hit on its hands with the iPhone 4S. The company has just announced that the number of pre-orders for the iPhone 4S has topped one million in a single day. This puts the iPhone 4S over the previous record holder, the iPhone 4 that had 600,000 […]
