Earlier this morning I posted about how to monitor for the release of the 3.0 Version of the iPhone OS using geektool.
If you didn’t get a chance to actually set this up but were wondering what would happen once the OS was released here is the after image. Remember I set it up to basically show me all versions available and before 10AM PST it was showing me there was 2 versions available for the 3GS and that was it, now it shows versions for all devices
Yes I know I’m late, works been keeping me from writing, but I really wanted to voice some of my thoughts on some new Apple toys. Specifically the new iPod nanos, I really like the new colors but the storage options makes me cry.
I really wish they offered the iPod classic in as many colors ans the new iPod nano,
I’d love to rock a nice blue iPod with 120 gigs of storage. my Music collection has already surpassed the 16 gig limitations of the iPod nano.
If you read my last post you know I just recently bought my self a bran new car. and the stereo in the car has the ability to connect an iPod to it, if I’m going to look into buying a new iPod I really want the ability to bring my entire music collection along, I have an older (5th gen) 30gig iPod I used right now. its been sitting in my closet for the past 6 months or so due to a cracked screen which is why I want to replace it. Not that its that big of a deal, my car offers me the ability to control the iPod from the deck so I don’t even need to use the screen anymore.
What are your thoughts on the new iPods? Like em? love em? let us know!
Well here we are Feb 29th and no SDK to speak of yet. Well not entirely true. Apple COO Tim Cook took some time to speak about the upcoming SDK recently. ( Didn’t Apple announce this was to be released in February?)
All Cook really had to say about the upcoming SDK was that it would “only be limited by [their] imagination.” He declined to give further details because Apple wants to keep “the element of surprise.”
I’ve read from various sources that programming on the iPhone will be just like programming applications for the Mac. If this is the case it’s great news. This means Apple will not be forcing developers to work in a little box.
However this will also present a security issue. Users will definitely have to make sure they are getting their applications from a reliable source as the programs have access to everything in the iPhone including the mic, the camera, and even the ability to triangulate your position using cell towers.
What does this mean? This means, if you get an application from an unscrupulous source, they have the ability to listen to you with the mike on your phone and track where you’ve been by triangulating your position based on cell towers.
Now I do admit that this is all speculation on my part. Apple my have very well already thought of all this and have a solution to this issue. For example, what’s stopping them from verifying all applications and then offering them only through the Apple store via iTunes?
We all know Apple loves to keep themselves in control. If you’re interested in listening to Tim Cook discuss the SDK as well as many other things Apple, the recording is available on the Apple site at the following link:
