It’s that time of the week again! The time for the one and only JBnator Diaries! This is the week following the celebration of Valentine’s Day and I just wanted to use this occasion to give a shoutout to all those lovers out there in general and my lovely wife in particular! Keep on loving – it’s a job! And now, back to our column.
Today I’m going to write about a little Cydia app called iFile, my first choice for browsing the iPhone. Those of you following my previous pieces may be familiar with it already. Everybody else – read on!
Hello there, JBnator fans! This is your blast from the future – ChiffaN. And today we’re gonna tackle a topic, which may be a life-saver for many people.
There is a story rolling around the Russian iPhone community about a guy who after returning from a two-week holiday in the Swiss Alps got hit over with a $30000 cell phone bill. Apparently he just got an iPhone and was using it extensively for GPS navigation abroad without realizing that it was pulling data via the excellent 3G connection for sky-high roaming fees. The story goes he sued the carrier for failing to communicate that the iPhone Maps app get it’s maps online and no-one heard of him since.
This a sad tale, but the good news is – you can avoid it and still have the luxury of using your iPhone to navigate even without a data connection or abroad. And the key is – Maps cache.
The iPad is quite a spitter. Its 30-pin port not only spits analogue audio (and digital outputs), it sports a very classy, very ancient VGA output. The adapter necessary to hook the unit to VGA won’t work on current iDevice hardware which isn’t configured to support it. Rather, the VGA output is primarily for hooking the device up to video projectors. Imagine leaving the lappy home for business meetings. Imagine hooking this badboy up to a home projector for gaming – not a bad bit of kit for road-business warriors.
Hey there folks! Seeing as we just opened up the forums and thanks to many very generous developers have been able to give out countless (haha) freebies, I wanted to tackle a topic that is a problem for many people out there: redeeming iTunes promotion codes. As everyone knows – to redeem a code or a GC you require a US iTunes account.
It’s well known that in order to register for an iTunes account, you HAVE to have a credit card for that country, right? Well, wrong. And the strangest thing is – Apple doesn’t keep it much of a secret, since this article is based on their own support ticket. Anyway, let’s get cracking!
Amidst the hype and hate of last week’s iPad announcement, the globe has continued to revolve, life has continued to rush on, and Apple’s competitors have continued whetting their development stones. Google, among that number have just put up some nice piccies and a video of their Chrome OS-powered tablet.
Piccies, video and more after the gap:
ChiffaN’s Comment of the Month (January 2010) – Yes, it’s that time of the month again when I’m giving away a $10 iTunes Gift Card!
Hey there, TMA fans! It’s the end of January and you know what this means? This means it’s time to announce the winner of ChiffaN’s Comment of the Month contest! Boy, how time flies! It seems only yesterday I sent out the Gift Card for the first contest.
This has been quite a thrilling month for all of us. With such major titles arriving on the store like GTA Chinatown Wars and Broken Sword Director’s Cut the Apple iPad went almost unnoticed. Yeah, right! I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to save up already!
But enough chit-chat! It’s time to announce the winner of my one-and-only Comment of the Month contest for January 2010 and reward him with a $10 iTunes Gift Card.
The winner of the contest and a recap of the rules after the gap. And remember – TMA is the only place where you are rewarded for being honest and forthright.
With the New Year well underway, lots of people are working hard to stick to those resolutions that we make every year that aim to better ourselves and/or our personal situations. For me personally it is all about organisation and with my hands all over Concrete Software’s organizational app To-Do List Pro, my New Year’s resolution might just stick.
The development community have wrapped 140 000 apps under their collective belt; Apple have seen 3 billion apps downloaded from the App store; and the hitherto iconic iPod is fading into Apple’s focal background even as it surpasses an impressive number of its own: 250 million units sold. Steve Jobs and Apple haven’t made any promises – the iPad isn’t even at market yet. But it has pulled at myriad heartstrings: it has grabbed the spotlight. But why is it important and is it worthwhile to buy, and if so, who will benefit from it?
This week’s JBnator column will be a bit different. With all of the hype around the iPad I just couldn’t ignore ite. While a lot of rave has been going around the web about the new hardware and apps for the unveiled iPad, many people forget that it is also running a new version of the iPhone OS. And while the 3.2 version is iPad only it would a safe guess that at least some of the features available on the iPad will find their way into the next iPhone and iPod Touch-friendly version of the OS as well. So let’s see what new stuff Apple have put in there and discuss whether we’ll see it on the iPhone.
Remembering your passwords is probably one of the biggest pains in the you-know-what when it comes to surfing the net. With more and more sites require you to register to gain access you almost need a little helper standing at the ready. I’ve tried many password reminders in the past for pc/mac/idevice and have often found them wanting. Luckily, VenticentoStudio’s handy iAccounts password manager has come to my rescue. It is a password manager that can handle just about anything you throw at it – just don’t literally throw things at your device, okay?
