ChiffaN’s Comment of the Month – Good deeds shall not go unpunished by a $10 iTunes Gift Card

Here at TouchMyApps we are committed to not only bring the latest and best news, reviews tips and tricks on all things iPhone and iPod Touch, but also to build a community of likewise minded people. To this extent we will soon put into place the TMA forums.

Meanwhile, we also very much appreciate your comments on our work, that can be left using the easy-to-use “comments” feature available at the bottom of each of our article pages – whether it’s news, reviews, best-of or any other. And one such recent comments made me decide that we should show our appreciation in a more monetary way.

To this extent I announce that starting this moment I am initiating my own ChiffaN’s Comment of the Month contest. Each month I am going to select the best comment on one of MY pieces and reward it with a $10 iTunes Gift Card. Yes, I HAVE gone bonkers, cause I’m spending quite a substantial part of my own paycheque on it (unfortunately writing DOESN’T pay – at least until you readers make us one the top sites out there). Anyway, I must point out that I will pay special attention to the comments to my column pieces (The JBnator Diaries, iTête à iTête, ChiffaN’s Rants), though comments to my news and reviews may be rewarded as well if they will be found worthy.

The winner and inspirer of the contest for December 2009 can be found after the gap as well as a recap of the rules.

And now, following the recent appearance of the possibly hi-res iPhone 4G (iPhone 3,1) in Apple’s firmware, the future versions of the OS have been spotted in the wild as well. All of this may also point to the iSlate.

Jailbreak – The App Store’s big daddy

Jailbreak-hero

Back when the iPhone was still suckling at the teats of limited web-apps, it had little to recommend itself other than its great touchscreen and OS. Fortunately, a group of pioneers forged their way into the device’s firmware and suddenly, the iPhone learned to walk. No longer just an Apple-branded phone with a few cute features: it became a viable alternative for the . It could run heaps of apps, some of which persist today through the App Store. Indeed, the Jailbreak community is the training wheels for the great dev community which exists on the iPhone today: a fact Apple wold be wise to remember in its ire to halt further Jailbreak developments.
