AT&T Offers Comprehensive Warranty For New iPhone

May 29, 2010 by Ryan Ray · Leave a Comment 

Many times people have dropped their iPhone, on accident that is or maybe on purpose, only to pick it up with a smashed screen. I actually know someone who took their iPhone with them on a ropes course and at the end on the way down she dropped her iPhone and it cracked. I also know an iPhone user who took their phone horseback riding and it was broken as well. I’m sure we all know these horror stories and wish we could do something to get our iPhones back in prisitin working order. Apparently coming June 6th, right before the new iPhone 4G comes out we will be able to! My first though was well would you look at that, AT&T has finally realized they could make some money off of offering a warranty for the iPhone. MILLIONS of people have the iPhone so why not create a warranty that offers more protection than the normal AppleCare?

5 Things I Want From WWDC ’10

May 25, 2010 by Ryan Ray · Leave a Comment 

If you are one of the Mac faithful you know that WWDC is coming up in just about 2 weeks. WWDC stands for World Wide Developer Conference and is obviously put on by Apple for all things OS X. They usually use WWDC to launch a new iPhone on the first day, then talk about everything from Safari to Core services the rest of the week. Often they give those attending the first seed of a new version of OS X, but we’ll see what happens this year. Besides all that hoopla, there are a few things I want to see from WWDC ’10. So here they are in no particular order…

Has Apple Lost Their Secrecy?

May 19, 2010 by Ryan Ray · Leave a Comment 

We all know how tight lipped Apple is about their upcoming products. This is nothing new for people who have been following Apple and their rumors for awhile. It’s very curious to try and get a peek inside to peer at the inner workings of how Apple works. Let’s take the iPhone for example, it was in development for two years. At least according to Steve Jobs. People on the outside had little hints that it was coming. The domain iPhone was registered to Apple, and it only made sense that Apple would come a long and save the cellphone from the cell carriers. People working on the iPhone outside of Apple didn’t dare risk the rath of Steve Jobs for letting the cat out of the bag about this product. It was going to bring millions or billions of dollars for their company if the product is successful, and more often than not Apple is successful.

Move Nuts With The iPhone

May 19, 2010 by Ryan Ray · Leave a Comment 

Finally, the day has come! There’s a funny, novelty iPhone app that has their sights set after our heart. Not that the app is called iPhone nuts or anything, if someone still wants to make one with our namesake ;) The app does combine the iPhone and nuts though. The app is called Magic Mover and apparently can do just that.

It can move random objects with your iPhone. I don’t know if you remember ever seeing this app but these guys are the same people who created an app that can move objects by blowing air. This one essentially does the same thing but with vibration. Check out their site if you want to see their other pretty funny apps.

5 Ways To Not Brick Your iDevice

May 16, 2010 by Ryan Ray · Leave a Comment 

I’ve caught the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch development fever and I’m ashamed of myself right now. I have officially bricked my first iPhone. I’ve been learning the basics of objective-c and the ins and outs of Xcode and had even started my first simple app just so I could play around. Then I had a brilliant idea, torrent 4.0 and put it on my iPhone. I thought it would be cool to see if I could run OS 4.0 without actually registering my device in the 99$ a year program. That was n00b mistake #1 in what will be the thousands as I try to learn to code for the app store. By the way, I love making interfaces for these sorts of things so if any one wants to partner and help me with the code I’m all for it! So here are my top 5 ways to not brick your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, any stinkin’ iDevice…

What The iPhone Needs; Nested Texting

May 15, 2010 by Ryan Ray · 2 Comments 

Here we are again with another installment of the ever so popular series called, What The iPhone Needs. It’s simply a place where I can rant about what I think the iPhone should have. Really they are either stupid complaints or simple improvements on the existing iPhone. So today I wanted to rant/talk about the SMS app on the iPhone. I’ve never used any other texting app, although maybe I should do some research and see if any others solve my problem. I’ve always just used the standard, Apple supplied texting app. If you know of any better texting apps let me know, I’m open to trying something new.

The Verizon iPhone Coming Summer 2010

May 13, 2010 by Ryan Ray · 5 Comments 

This is an exciting time of the summer, school is out for me and many others. Nice spring weather is here, and the next iPhone is so close I can almost feel it. The rumor mills are churning more and more out every day about the next gen iPhone. Of course nothing fuels the flames of the mills more than the iPhone coming to Verizon. Remember when the first iPhone was about to come out and Verizon turned it down due to Apple’s demands. Now they are begging for another chance to have it. Plus Apple may be getting tired of dealing with only AT&T and their problems.

iWork On My iPhone?

May 11, 2010 by Ryan Ray · 1 Comment 

We all don’t have iPads, although all of us wish we did. The iPad is lucky enough to have a whole suite of office apps called iWork from Apple waiting for you in the app store. So what are we to do when it comes to typing a long email, or even yet creating a spreadsheet or document? Perhaps this solution exist out there in the jailbreak world, but I would love to have iWork available on my iPhone. Maybe Microsoft Office, but I’ve always found iWork to be a lot cleaner and easier to use. We’ve all seen iWork on the iPad, and even though the iPhone doesn’t have quite as big of a screen I think it could work. Here’s how…
