iPhone nano case appears

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 15th, 2008

iPhone nano case appearsWe probably shouldn’t be basing predictions for important new Apple products on protective case mockups from China. Even so, things like this have revealed the truth in the past. iDealsChina is reporting that XSKN is working on a silicone skin for the upcoming “Nano iPhone” a shorter, chubbier version of the iPhone 3G.

According to iDealsChina sources, the phone will feature EDGE data, but otherwise is pretty identical in specs to its predecessors. Well, it has a smaller screen. According to them, Apple plans to sell tons of these for low prices in places like Walmart, and that the company will be unveiling the new handset in January during Macworld.

AT&T offers iPhone 3G home activationYes, you can now get an iPhone from the comfort of your livingroom, wearing only your underwear. Just purchase the phone online, receive it at home and activate the handset via iTunes. That was easy wasn’t it?

Only new accounts and new line activations apply. Those who want to upgrade from where they are at the moment will still have to put some clothes on and head toward a store. But this does make things a whole lot more convenient for everyone. Especially nudists, WoW players and shut-ins.

All black iPhone 3G debutsDiamond jewellers De Vere’s of London have unveiled the all black Apple iPhone 3G. The ‘Midnight’ iPhone 3G features a deep black bezel surrounding the front screen to match the rear case. The Midnight iPhone is exclusive to De Vere’s for £799 (USD$1199) or as a bezel fitted to an existing iPhone for £299 (USD$449).

The black Midnight iPhone was originally created by De Vere’s to show off the effect of diamonds set into its luxury De Vere Diamond iPhones. Then they realized how good the all black iPhone looked without the diamonds.

DIY iPhone retro rotary dock

DIY iPhone retro rotary dockHow cool would it be to dock your iPhone in a rotary telephone while running this app. This hack turns your old rotary phone into a cool iPhone docking station. It’s sure to sound great since it has 16 Watts of speaker power hidden in the device.

It sports one speaker behind the dial on the front of the phone and two speakers in the handset itself. The IR sensor and controls are on the side of the phone and the docking port is hidden under the receiver when the hand set is off. This is a pretty awesome mod if you have a 1940′s phone laying around. Video below.

iPhone hitting Walmart by the end of December

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 8th, 2008

iPhone hitting Walmart by the end of DecemberRumors that Walmart would begin selling the iPhone soon have been around for a few days and we now have an answer thanks to Bloomberg. Yes, you’ll be able to get an iPhone at Walmart, and probably by Christmas. Store representatives at several locations confirmed that employees are being trained to sell the handset, which will hit shelves by the end of the month. This makes Walmart the second retail chain to sell the iPhone, and also the largest.

Any truth to the whole $99 4GB model deal? That isn’t confirmed, and is looking unlikely. The $99 iPhone will probably happen eventually according to some, but others claim that a Bentonville, Arkansas location will sell the 4GB model as well as the 8GB and 16GB versions, which have been confirmed at their normal $199 and $299 prices.

iPhone Coffee Table with built-in coaster app

iPhone Coffee Table with built-in coaster appHere’s one nice looking piece of geek furniture. The iPhone’s colorful icons translate well into spots to park your drinks. Oddly and sadly, the iPhone Coffee Table has no special dock for your iPhone, and it won’t run any apps. It’s just a really kick-ass coffee table featuring the home screen.

One cool feature is that each icon features a removable coaster so guests won’t scratch up your giant nerd-decor. The creators claim that it’s “completely made of corrugate and glued together with white glue”. Anyhow, the end result is a beauty.

reviveLITE charges your iPhone, wards off monsters

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 4th, 2008

reviteLITE charges your iPhone, wards off monstersThis is truly an odd combo. An iPhone charger paired with that age old way of keeping monsters at bay, a night-lite. It’s a great idea. Should the lite fail for any reason, you can call for help with the monsters. They should have had this when we were kids.

The reviveLITE will certainly make you feel confident enough to sleep with your foot out of the covers and danging over the edge of the bed. It was developed by Scosche Industries, and will charge any and all iPods and iPhones. All you have to do is plug it into a wall outlet and you are safe. The darkness coming from your open closet is a whole other story.

Wal-Mart to Sell $99 4GB iPhone?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 4th, 2008

Wal-Mart to Sell $99 4GB iPhone?So, you’ve been waiting for the iPhone to hit Walmart, so you can stock up on paper towels, buy a DVD and throw an iPhone in your squeaky cart all at once. Well you’re in luck assuming you didn’t get killed by greedy shoppers during black Friday. Looks like Apple will begin selling the iPhone at Wal-Marts on December 28th.

Wal-Mart employees are apparently already receiving training on iPhone activation. Today Boy Genius Report claims that Apple may be reintroducing the 4GB iPhone to be sold at Wal-Mart for only $99 with a two year contract. They aren’t completely confident about the report, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. However, the Walmart training materials pictured above have been seen so that suggests there is some truth to it.

China produces knock off flip iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on November 27th, 2008

China produces knock off flip iPhoneWe’ve seen our share of knock-offs coming out of China, but this one is downright funny. They’ve taken the iPhone and turned it into a clamshell style phone. Funny thing is, it resembles a MacBook more then an actual iPhone.

It is attractive with the brushed aluminum casing and the iPhone look inside, but I’m guessing that performance isn’t up to par. Surprisingly, the camera is 3-megapixels, more than on most mid to low-end phones. It also sports a 2.6-inch display with a resolution of 240 x 320. It’s pretty small at 105 x 53 x 17mm and about 110 grams. One giveaway that this is a crap-gadget are the LED lights under the apple. I guess that’s the best they could do.

m888a iPhone Nano clone
Here’s an interesting clone. The m888a will let you own a smaller sized iPhone, with dull specs. An iPhone mini-me. Just keep in mind that your fingers remain the same size. Specs include: a 2.4-inch touchscreen with stylus, dual-band GSM and a VGA camera, even comes in black and white in an Apple-like package. One thing that the original doesn’t have and the m888a does is dual-SIM support and freedom to be on any GSM network.

Last Call iPhone app tells you how drunk you are

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on November 17th, 2008

Last Call iPhone app tells you how drunk you areThe Last Call iPhone app tells you how drunk you are, because you are probably way too far gone to judge for yourself. It determines this using your weight and how many drinks you’ve had already. It also calculates your drunkenness by what type of alcoholic beverages you’ve consumed, and it will even offer advice on what to do next now that you’re three sheets to the wind.

If you’re too blitzed to drive, you can press a button and it will call a taxi for you. Best of all, it’s free, which means more booze money. Now all you need is an app that shows how much of your liver is still healthy and calculates how much more drinking you can do until your final days.

Fake calls on your iPhone, drop names

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2008

Fake calls on your iPhoneHere’s one useful app that can be had for just $1. Fake Calls does just what it sounds like, it lets your iPhone simulate receiving a phone call shortly after launching the app. The best part is you can set the name of the caller as anyone you want. “Oh excuse me I have to take this call from Steve Jobs. He’s having trouble thinking up new ‘i’ names.” Hey, why not. We’re talking $1 here. Help prop up the economy.

Hacked iPhone gets a real keyboard

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2008

So, some guy took a jail-broken iPhone and wired it up to an actual keyboard that’s about the same size as the phone. Pretty neat, but of course it completely ruins the beauty of the iPhone. Still, if you can’t handle the virtual keyboard and don’t mind your device being ugly, this may be a good solution for you. But I think that most people by now have gotten used to the virtual keyboard, so it’s kinda useless. But we always like a good hack.

John McCain iPhone app is pretty funny

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2008

Obama has an iPhone app, so it’s only fitting that John McCain have one too. Here you can interact with the cranky maverick and get him to make all of his weird old man grunts, say “My friends” and such. It’s not official, and may only work on jailbroken iPhones, but this is way too much fun. You can even put the old sour-puss to sleep when he gets too cranky.
