    Despite all of the issues we have seen with the 3g iPhone launch Apple is rolling in the big bucks.

    Apple has sold 1 million 3g iPhones in the 3 days since launch. Everyone everywhere seems to be picking these things up as fast as Apple can stock them. Speaking of stock I wish I'd bought some more Apple stock 4 days ago

    In other news in the three days since the launch of the 3g iPhone and ...

    Apple has done well with this one. I’ll hit this review in two sections - one for the official 2.0 software release, and one for the hardware side of the 3G iPhone.

    The Hardware

    The iPhone 3G is a beautiful piece of engineering. Just a few tenths of a millimeter thicker than the original iPhone (12.3 mm/0.48 in vs 11.6mm/0.46 in), the slightly curved back of the newer iPhone actually feels a little better in the hand than the previous version. The plastic back (so the 3G signals and radio waves can be better received/sent) doesn’t get as cold to the touch as the metal back of the original iPhone, lending the 3G a more natural, warmer feel. I got the white version, and haven’t noticed the smudging that folks are saying the black version gets. I haven’t seriously scratched it, but it feels solid and well put-together. You can tell its plastic, and not metal, which feels a bit cheaper, but ...

    The Dev Team has released two more videos, essentially proving the 2.0 jailbreak. These videos show an item actually being bought in the AppStore, and then another package being downloaded from Cydia, right onto the iPhone. EDIT: It shows installed packages in Cydia, not one being installed.

    The dev team has released their video of the newest jailbreak. Also they have specified what "released soon" means. Soon as in a few days but NOT over the weekend. We'll just have to sit back, relax, and be patient for a few days. It IS good to know that it is coming though.

    The dev team has done their testing on the new hardware and everything is working as they anticipated. A video of the upcoming release should be out soon shortly followed by the jailbreak.

    Stay tuned! MMi will be sure to keep you updated!

    Reports are coming in that people who have bought new me.com accounts are able to login and access all the features. Unfortunately us loyal .mac users are still totally SOL since our .mac accounts have ...

    Update: Restore via iTunes to download a new version of the firmware (2.0, 5A347). The colors will look much better after you restore. The shipping firmware on the iPhone 3G is 2.0 5A345. After the restore, the colors will be close to v1 iphone colors. posted by tamakin

    Update #2: Some have posted that update #1 doesn't solve the issue, the theory is back to bad consistency between various screen manufacturers. ...

    Update: The official firmware released today is different from yesterday's early leak. The filesizes of the files are different and there is a minor change in the file name. It is not clear what the differences are yet so stay tuned -- give us a heads up if you discover the difference!

    Update 2: The method to fix the ibricks made in the activation process is to leave the iphone plugged in and on for 10-15 ...

    Well people haven't lost any interest in the iPhone. Just like last year there were/are lines at Apple and AT&T retail stores. Also with the iTunes Store going down there are long wait times in many locations. Share your iPhone day experience.

    Kyle in Tampa took some shots of the lines he was at.

    At the Apple store these were a couple shots of the lines @ 8:30 am. The iTunes Store went offline ...

    Well it was bound to happen, many stores, both AT&T and Apple, are experencing extremely slow or no activations at all. Reports from Engadet are saying the stores are sending the people home with their new phones so they can activate it from there....which i find very interesting.



    If you look at the screens, you can see the ...

    It was a disappointment to browse through the AppStore and not see any turn-by-turn software. The much anticipated TomTom app was nowhere to be found. No need to fear TeleNav is here!



    Coming soon to a 3g iPhone near you Telenav will fill the vacancy with their turn-by-turn navigation app utilizing the GPS build into the 3g iPhone. Some features will be colored ...
