The presidential race has moved to the iPhone, with Sen. Barack Obama taking the clear lead in a slick-looking free application that turns the iPhone into a tool aimed at getting the faithful to phone a friend for the candidate.
So far, GOP rival Sen. John McCain's supporters have nothing similar available on the hugely popular Apple App Store, which distributes programs to the estimated 8 million users of the phone.
The Illinois senator is also one of those iPhone users. Campaign videos have shown him pulling it out of his pocket and checking something on the screen.
While there are various election countdowns, political blog posts and applications that track the latest survey data, the Obama '08 application that became available for a free download this week was programmed by Obama volunteers and feeds news reports, videos, campaign talking points and photos to the device.[View More]
Adobe confirmed yesterday at the Flash On The Beach (FOTB) conference in Brighton, UK that it is actually developing a Flash Player for the iPhone. Even though it's still work in progress, with the iPhone is at its second generation, it's about time Apple!
Flash is basically the only thing that keeps the iPhone from not delivering and now Adobe confirmed that such an application is in development. Ever since the iPhone was launched in 2007, one of the most sought after features that were missing from the phone's Web browser was the possibility to run Flash content.[View More]
Some naughty developer must have violated their Apple NDA agreement – tsk, tsk.
A couple of details have begun to trickle out about iPhone 2.2, the next revision to the iPhone/iPod touch software. According to a piece at AppleInsider, Apple has released beta 1 of firmware 2.2 to developers that features a number of small UI tweaks.[View More]
Sure, on the surface Google’s Android seems more like a shot through the heart of Windows Mobile — or the head of Palm’s Linux-based OS 2.0 aspirations — but while those platforms enjoy their own historical and market share, it’s Apple’s iPhone that has all the mind share of late. That means, despite Google’s CEO being on the Apple Board of Directors, Google’s Maps, Search, and other services having a prominent place on both devices, and — let’s face it — Google’s full on tech-crush for the iPhone — no one is going to hesitate to pit the two systems head-to-head. Including us!
So, what advantages does each one have? What drawbacks? Here they are, in our opinion: the top five iPhone vs. Android Wins and Losses… after the break![View More]
Mobile devices are clearly the platform for citizen newsgathering, and an iPhone application is a logical funnel. Soon people will be able to broadcast anything live from the street; in a way, individuals will become walking televisions.
Last week, CBS Mobile released its EyeMobile iPhone application, making CBS the first broadcast network to launch an application enabling users to become personal broadcasters as they upload, view and comment on photos and videos live, from anywhere.

As you may now, some Windows Vista users have gotten the blue screen of death error message after installing iTunes 8 and then connecting either an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPod to their PCs. Thankfully, Apple's posted detailed instructions on how to resolve the situation.
Here's what Apple recommends you do:[View More]
As widely reported, the iPhone takes a screenshot every time the home button is pressed so that the 3D “zoom” effect can be processed when the application zooms in and out, when suspending and resuming applications. These shots are stored, at least temporarily, on the device, presenting potential privacy issues.
Jonathan Zdziarski, author of the book iPhone Open Application Development and an iPhone Forensics manual, has deviced a way to disable this writing to disk, so that screenshots cannot be recovered.[View More]
There’s been a lot of chatter today about the CBS EyeMobile app for the iPhone. Reports indicate that the app lets aspiring citizen journalists report on news by uploading photos and videos to the CBS site with the popular device. What reports aren’t saying is that in order to use the service, you have to have a jailbroken iPhone.[View More]
Imation's Apple-friendly label XtremeMac today launched a trio of speaker docks all tuned to support iPhones, including the iPhone 3G. The Luna Voyager clock radio is new to the range and is small enough to be carried on trips. In a unique touch, the system can set its time from an iPhone rather than rely on manual settings. It also has its own battery backup both for the clock and the buzzer/iPhone/iPod alarm to prevent a power outage from affecting the Voyager overnight. While not as powerful as larger systems, the portability should help drop the price to $90 for the miniature Luna's November launch.[View More]
