Facebook has been update to version 3.01

Facebook has been update to version 3.01… not to be confused with the upcoming 3.1 update. Version 3.01 is just some bug fixes, no new features this time around. The bug fixes include bugs with birthdays, timestamps, friend list crashing… etc. If you are having problem with your notifications, you will have to hold out a little longer, that is a server issues not a bug in the application itself. Hewitt says it will be fixed in the next few days.

According to Joe Hewitt, “You may have to search for Facebook on the App Store and install it directly. I know it still says 2.5, but it will install 3.0.”
So, hopefully you understand by this message of Joe that Facebook 3.0 is placed on App Store but its still calling it v2.5, so ignore that message and just download the application.

Apple News | Palm Rejected Jobs Request to Stop Hiring From Each Other

Former Palm CEO Ed Colligan rejected a proposal from Steve Jobs to refrain from hiring each others employees two years ago, according to BloomBerg.

The communication came just after Palm hired a former Apple executive, Jon Rubinstein, to develop their new phone. Steve Jobs was concerned that Rubinstein was recruiting Apple employees. “We must do whatever we can to stop this,” Jobs said

The exact details of what Jobs proposed are not known; however, he did say that Apple had patents and more money than Palm if the companies ended up in a legal battle.

Colligan replied saying, "Your proposal that we agree that neither company will hire the other’s employees, regardless of the individual’s desires, is not only wrong, it is likely illegal,".

Apple News | iPhone 3GS Supports 720p, 1080p Video

WeiPhone is reporting that the iPhone 3GS is capable of playing back both 720p and 1080p video encoded in H.264 through the built in player.

iLounge notes that Apple may be putting arbitrary limits on video playback to save battery life keep things consistant with previous iPhones.

Using the free document storage and viewing application FileAid, forum member fridtear was able to circumvent Apple’s video restrictions, smoothly playing back files up to 30 Mbps in 1980x1080 resolution via the iPhone 3GS’ built-in video player.

Its possible that Apple may be saving this feature for a supposed firmware upgrade or possibly even for the next iPhone HD.

News of this capability was rumored in April along with a new Apple AV Cable to allow for both component and composite on the same cable.

10 Hidden Features of iPhone 3G S

documentation of the iPhone OS 3.0. You might have discovered some of them while using your iPhone 3GS but there are some features, perhaps you did not discover. Here are some of those hidden features. Take a look

1. When you attach a photo in mail, you can magnify it like you would text. Just tap and hold on the image.

2. There is no restriction in the number of apps that you can install but if the number of the apps exceed 11 screens showing 175 apps in total, then the app will be installed without an icon but you can access and use it using the spotlight search. In fact you need to use the spotlight to search the apps that are shown in more than the 5th screen for your own convenience. So, an app sans an icon wouldn’t be much of a problem.

3. You can shake the phone to undo typing. A pop up will appear when you shake the phone and you can choose whether you want to undo or keep what you have written.

4. There is an edit button when you’re inside a [text] conversation and you can now delete/forward each line in a text just like you would in mail.

5. You can adjust the song scrolling speed while listening to it. In the previous version you could only rewind or fast forward through the simple dot on the scrolling bar, but now you can drag your finger right or left to scroll through the song at high speed and if you do the movement while dragging your finger down the screen, the speed will decrease to half speed, quarter speed or fine scrubbing.

6. When bringing up the playback controls on the lock screen, it now shows song title, artist, and album. Previously it only showed the song title. The font is also smaller.

7. You can access some special characters while holding some characters down. For example while holding down the “.” sign you can get access to “…” sign. You can get quotation and apostrophes and other signs using this technique.

8. Spotlight can be accessed by swiping towards the right side of the screen or by pressing the home button while in the first Home screen page. There is a search bar at the top of mail and contact list.

9. When using the camera, if you tap on the previous photo (bottom left) and go to the flimstrip, you can select “Done” to go back to the camera. You can also zoom further into photos in the Camera Roll then you could with 2.0.

10. When moving icons on the home screen and you move an app to a different page, if you keep the icon to the edge of the page it will go on to the next page. Previously you had to move the icon away from the edge before you could keep moving it to other pages.

Apple News | A Profile of Steve Jobs Published By The Times

The Times has published a profile Steve Jobs which discusses some of the recent events in his life; such as, his health and his fight to tear down the Jackling House.

For five years the owner of the Jackling House in Woodside, California, has been trying to knock it down. He hates the place, calling it “one of the biggest abominations of a house I’ve ever seen”. He hates it so much, he has abandoned it to live a few miles away in Palo Alto. Pictures of the interior show a ghostly, decaying mansion. The owner can’t knock it down because of protests from conservationists. But a deal has been done. He will spend $600,000 to have it taken down and will have it rebuilt elsewhere — not a big victory by his standards, but a satisfying one. He has been having a hard time lately.

9to5Mac has heard that Apple’s PR people attempted to prevent publication of this report though most of the information in the report is common knowledge. Perhaps they felt a quick glance at the article might put Jobs in a negative light.

The report does recognize the genius of Steve Jobs:

Geniuses tend to see their own lives as universally significant, embodying the great currents of their age. They may not know they are doing this, but it is evident in their work. Everything about Jobs tells me this is how he sees his life, as the distillation of the high-tech revolution and of affluent, aspirational consumerism. He is, as Dan Lyons says, “the ultimate end-user”, both consumer and maker. He is one with the bozos and their gizmos. That’s who he is.

Apple News | i.TV 2.0 Available Soon With Tivo Remote

i.TV today announced the i.TV Remote Control Framework that gives third parties the ability to develop solutions to control external devices such as a television, an AV receiver or DVR via i.TV on the iPhone and iPod touch. The Tivo remote is the first integrated remote control on i.TV for TiVo subscribers with a broadband-connected TiVo DVR.

"With i.TV, you can now use your iPhone or iPod touch as a remote control for
televisions, DVRs and other home entertainment devices,” said i.TV CEO, Brad Pelo. "By bringing together the television guide and remote control on a mobile device you carry in your pocket, i.TV will change how people discover and watch television shows and movies.!We are pleased that TiVo is the first of our partners to introduce remote control capabilities for their customers who use i.TV.”

“TiVo is about giving the user control of the television experience,” said Jim Denney vice president of product marketing at TiVo Inc. “Having the TiVo remote available through i.TV is another way TiVo customers can access the content they want, the way they want.”

The i.TV Remote Control Framework gives development partners a flexible platform upon which to re-imagine the traditional remote control. For example, developers can make alphanumeric keypads for channel number entry optional and instead present users with a graphical user interface where they can tap on images or links to change channels on a television.

Remote controls built upon the framework use scripts that define user interface elements and key press behavior for controlling external home entertainment devices. Device discovery and communication between the iPhone or iPod touch and external hardware are handled via the Bonjour protocol or Apple"s External Accessory Framework for Bluetooth accessories.

Also new in i.TV 2.0
• New user interface -- Streamlined and simplified UI and user experience, based on feedback and usage data from millions of i.TV users.
• iTunes integration -- From show detail screens, discover and instantly download download relevant television episodes, movies, and podcast content from iTunes.
• Alerts - Using the iPhone OS push notification capabilities, i.TV now allows users to set alerts for specific, upcoming shows or simply ask for an alert anytime a new episode will air.

Pricing and Availability
i.TV 2.0 with integrated TiVo remote control, iTunes integration and new user interface is free and will be available in August from the iTunes Store.

iPhone App Facebook 3.0 is Submitted to App Store

Facebook submitted Facebook version 3.0 of iPhone app to Apple. Joe Hewitt told this via Twitter:
“Just uploaded Facebook for iPhone 3.0 to the App Store for review.”

Joe also said that he’ll post the screen shots and details of Facebook 3.0 app soon on this Facebook link. Furthermore he said that they are going to start work on Facebook version 3.1 of iPhone application from tomorrow.
In July we have been published the detailed features list of Facebook 3.0 iPhone application. There are so many enhancements are included in this version of Facebook iPhone app and the most interesting one is video uploads through iPhone 3GS.
So, let’s wait for Apple response, obviously company will take a little time for the approval of this iPhone app.

TomTom's much-anticipated iPhone GPS

iPhoneclub.nl reports [Google translation] that four regional versions of TomTom's much-anticipated iPhone GPS application have appeared in Apple's New Zealand App Store: U.S. & Canada, Western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Pricing is as follows (Users should set their iTunes Store to "New Zealand" prior to clicking the App Store links.):

- U.S. & Canada [App Store]: NZ $124.99 (US $84.41)
- Western Europe [App Store]: NZ $179.99 (US $121.55)
- Australia [App Store]: NZ $104.99 (US $70.90)
- New Zealand [App Store]: NZ $119.99 (US $81.03)

The App Store application prices obviously include only the iPhone application and not the companion car kit that will integrate a car mount, enhanced GPS receiver, built-in speaker, and power cables. The kit will also include an audio output jack, as well as a microphone to enable use of the iPhone as a Bluetooth speakerphone. A package supposedly containing both the hardware and software components appeared for pre-order early last month priced at £99 (US $163.39) plus taxes at UK retailer Handtec, although the legitimacy of the offer remains unclear.

It is unknown whether the applications' appearance on the New Zealand App Store is the first phase of a rollout to multiple countries or if the release was a premature addition.
