    It appears that Apple is slowly trying to phase out the older iPods that feature the vintage Click Wheel. I find this to be kind of an ******* move considering they just re-released the nano with video support, which still uses the Click Wheel. So anyone who enjoys games on their iPod Nano, unfortunately there will be nothing new to look forward to.

    Joystiq reported on some new games coming out soon, and happened to mention ...

    The iPhone has been available in China through China Unicom for just under a month, but the sales results so far have been far short of what the carrier hoped and even some the more pessimistic pundits had predicted. In the latest bit of bad news for the effort to bring the black-market phone legit in China, the popular Chinese e-commerce site TaoBao - called the "eBay of China" - reports a grand total of five iPhones sold in ...

    Two guards at a Washington, DC jail were arrested on federal bribery charges for suspicion of accepting cash to smuggle contraband to inmates: specifically iPods, cell phones and chargers. The devices are prohibited, in part, because they can be used to hack security equipment in the jail.

    According to a story in the Washington Post, an inmate went to the FBI in October 2008 to report that guards ...

    According to a report from 9to5Mac, the Israeli firm known as Emblaze is issuing a staunch warning to Apple. Executives at the company say that a new Apple-approved app for the iPhone and iPod touch violates Emblaze's US patent regarding media streaming technology.

    What's the name of the app? Your guess is as good as mine. For now, Emblaze isn't saying. Although this week, we at ModMyi covered the arrival of an app that ...

    It sounds kind of like a pizza.

    But if you take away the "supreme" moniker, you'll quickly discover a rather nondescript iPhone 3GS. With the "supreme" tag, however, you're looking at a gold-dipped iPhone of the gods more ornate and pricey than any other Apple product available.

    Dubbed "the world's most expensive iPhone," British designer Stuart Hughes is at it again. Having previously dabbled in precious metals and Apple technology, ...

    AT&T and Verizon today agreed to drop the lawsuits they've been pursuing against each other over advertising claims. The US District Court in Atlanta dismissed AT&T's suit hoping to block Verizon's "there's a map for that" ads, and the US District Court for the Southern District of New York closed an earlier Verizon complaint that would have shut down AT&T's criticisms of its "most ...

    The Register is out this morning with an interesting read on the new offering from Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey. Dorsey, it turns out, is behind a new mag-stripe reader for the iPhone.

    Coming only days after the other Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said 2010 will finally be the year that Twitter proves profitable, hopefully Dorsey isn't moonlighting as a hardware developer to make ends meet until Twitter actually turns a profit ...

    Knocking Live has arrived, the first formally sanctioned and Apple approved iPhone app to offer live video broadcasting over a 3G network. A peer to peer video streaming app that enables users to connect through Facebook, Knocking Live's arrival has been "long overdue" to some. But according to 9to5Mac, the app, which hit the App Store earlier this week, is still a bit buggy.

    For obvious reasons, the debut of Knocking ...

    A Consumer Reports survey of wireless users in the US (subscription required) ranked AT&T dead last among major carriers in terms of quality. Most of the 50,000 people surveyed in 26 cities gave AT&T low ratings in such categories as service availability, circuit capacity, dropped-call frequency, and voice service. Adding insult to injury is the fact that Verizon Wireless - which has been hammering AT&T in its "there's a map ...

    I just noticed an update to the RockApp and after installing, and rebooting, I was prompted by RockApp with a note that told me my SSH Password was still at the default of 'alpine' and that I should change my password immediately. (I just restored recently and had not done this yet)

    After accepting the pop-up, I was able to enter in a new password. I was then informed that the password had been successfully changed.

    Fring is a VoIP and chat client for your mobile phone. The service works with a handful of various networks, including Skype, AIM, MSN Messenger and Twitter. You can even make calls to landlines from your SkypeOut and SkypeIn account and place voice calls to your Skype and Fring address book.

    Today, Fring is taking its iPhone app to the next level by bringing support for video chat. Nokia added this feature to some of its devices last week, and the new version of Fring is now in the app store. Fring is free and you can grab it here (iTunes link). That means the iPhone/iPod Touch can now accept incoming Skype Video Calls! This can lead to a bunch of ways to monitor something as well.

    I wont lie, I've never really used Fring. I've fired it up once or twice before, but with this update I am very tempted to try it out again. The only problem with this is the iPhone doesn’t have a camera on the front, making ...
