    Need STORAGE? Apple knows many of us do and have upped the iPod Touch to freaking 64GB. Avaialble for purchase once the store goes back live the new iPod Touch comes in 8GB, 32GB, and 64GB for $199, $299, and $399 respectively. Forget about purchasing the 8GB, because it's crap filled bad value for the money. The $299 32GB and $399 64GB versions will be 50% faster, ...

    First of all, today's event will be mostly surrounded by iPods etc so I believe the new OS 3.1 to be the only iPhone news!


    Apple is releasing the iPhone / iPod Touch OS 3.1 today itself! ...

    iTunes 9 will be showing up in your software updates very shortly (edit: it is live now check software updates.) and there are a ton of new features included. Let's start out with my personal favorite one; arrange your iPhone and iPod Touch springboard via iTunes (pictured above). Face it, this is a feature that has been needed since the App Store went live, arranging apps by hand on the iPhone is a total pita. Thanks Apple! (and thanks Movement for ...

    store.apple.com is down. When it goes back live possibly expect a new iPod to be sitting in there waiting for you to buy it

    FYI iPhone software update servers are also sporadically offline as they load up 3.1 firmware for download.

    What's gonna happen? Not sure... rumors were rounded up here, maybe the Beatles in iTunes? Maybe a new iPod? We'll keep you updated...

    So far, it looks like folks are in position and ...

    For many of us, iTunes is the ultimate source of escape and utter bliss. But for as dependent as we are on iTunes, the music industry itself may soon have to depend on it too.

    For survival, that is.

    With millions of music lovers turning to the digital sphere rather than a physical storefront to get the music they want, the recording industry has been bleeding money over what now amounts ...

    Finally, the madness will come to an end today. After days and weeks of maddening speculation about the many things Apple "could" say or do at their annual media event, the wait to find out exactly what the tech pioneer has in store concludes today.

    Of course, that means there are still a few more hours remaining for frantic guesswork. And, as always, I'm more than willing to participate.

    Out of minutes on your iPhone account? Tim Cox at Cult of Mac reveals the details of this tidy hack to both send and receive calls for free on the iPhone, using Fring for the iPhone and free Gizmo VoIP (voice-over-IP) and Google Voice accounts. Outgoing calls are limited to three minutes, but you can talk as long as you want on incoming calls (thanks, ...

    A survey released by AppsFire indicates that iPhone users have spent an average of $80 on premium apps, Moblie Entertainment reports. The results also showed that 65% of the apps the users had downloaded were free, the average cost of the paid apps was $1.65 (it's stats, guys, the numbers do come out a little weird).

    Perhaps the most interesting finding ...

    Just a few days after Monomio's Commodore 64 emulator for the iPhone was accepted by Apple for inclusion on the App Store, the app was rejected, as Touch Arcade reports.

    The reason, as in the previous instance when the app was first rejected, was due to the presence of a BASIC interpreter in the code. Alert gamers noted that BASIC had not ...

    [SUMMARY - we're about to hit 1/2 a million members, and we're having a contest with prizes including a MacBook Pro, iPhone 3G[S], Apple TV, and more. Read on if you're interested...]

    Well folks, it's been just over two years since we opened our virtual doors and began customizing the iPhone to bend to the community's wills... mid June 2007 saw the birth of ModMyi.com (back then we were called ModMyiPhone.com). From a July 15, 2007 guide on skinning the iPhone (the first out there!) done purely from command line with now-antiquated tools such as IphoneInterface and ./jailbreak up to today's super-easy connect-and-click PwnageTool and other tools, we've been right there bringing you the current methods, fresh news, and guides/community all along. We are the oldest (we were the first besides Saurik's) Cydia repository, and we continue to expand our offerings and features to you guys. Our members are what makes all this possible.

    We're now over 485,000 members strong, and nearing that 500,000 mark here in the next couple weeks. To celebrate, we're doing what we do best - giving things away, to you. We've got a brilliant 14 day contest launching today and sponsored by FreshBooks.com, as well as NegriElectronics.com and more. Top prizes? A 13" MacBook Pro loaded with a 2.53GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM, 250GB of HD, and an 8x SuperDrive sponsored by FreshBooks.com and MiniBooks.app, and a 16GB iPhone 3G[S] - factory unlocked (it won't lock) - sponsored by NegriElectronics.com. Other prizes include a 160GB Apple TV, 3 FreshBooks + MiniBooks Packages (1 free year subscription - Shuttle Bus package worth $228 - to FreshBooks plus a free copy of MiniBooks.app - $14.99), and 3 Defender Series cases from OtterBox.com.

    How's it work? You help us build up, we help you get sweet stuff. You gotta work for it. Prizes will go to the top 9 participants, judged on total points amassed.

    How to Earn Points (there's tons of ways):
    • Tweet. Click here to retweet our contest announcement. You can earn 1 point per day of the contest by tweeting that precise message.
    • Twitter. Follow @modmyi, @freshbooks, and @negrielectronic (all 3) to receive 5 total points. Each submitting user can only use ONE Twitter account.
    • Link. Link to us from your blog/site to gain 5 points per site (i.e., 6 links on one site will only be 5 points - but 6 links from 6 different sites will be 30 points). Site's must have a PageRank of at least 2 to qualify. This will be checked by our contest judges, and links needs to have the following format:
      HTML Code:
      <a href="http://modmyi.com" title="iPhone News">iPhone News and Forums</a> at <a href="http://modmyi.com/forums" title="iPhone Forums">ModMyi.com</a>
    • Get a FreshBooks Account. They're free. Simply having a FreshBooks.com account will net you 10 points. We will verify these. Click here to get one free.
    • Create a Guide. As another part of our 500,000 member celebration, shortly after the contest ends we'll be launching our brand new, completely redesigned guides section here at ModMyi.com. The current Wiki is nice - but tough to organize and in need of a makeover. We're on that for you guys (as well as a few other very cool upgrades coming this fall) - and need your help to fill this thing up with even more fresh guides!

      Here's how the guides point system works:

      Make us a guide on customizing/using your Apple device. This should be using CURRENT software on a CURRENT OS (Snow Leopard/Windows 7/Leopard/Vista/iPhone OS 3.0.1). It can be anything from jailbreaking/unlocking your iPhone/iPod Touch to installing Boxee on your Apple TV to changing system icons in OS X. Simple stuff on iPhone/iPod Touch counts as well - How to connect to bluetooth, how to buy appstore app, how to redeem app code,

    It seems Flickr is finally getting with the program. The hugely popular online photo sharing service is at long last debuting its own official iPhone app. And Tech Crunch has the scoop this morning on a development that should make a lot of photo-crazy iPhone users particularly jolly.
