📌 Counter-Forensics: Pair-Lock Your Device with Apple’s Configurator | Zdziarski's Blog of Things

“Someone would need to have physical possession to and full access to both your iOS device and your desktop computer in order to undo this pairing lock to perform a forensic extraction or any other kind of analysis.” #

📌 HOWTO: Native iPhone/iPad apps in JavaScript

All the things to do to make an HTML app feel native (ish) on iOS. Apple documents all of this stuff, but across like 53 different pages. It’s nice having it all in one place. #

📌 Nasty Bug in iOS 5.0.1 OTA Update screws up Address Book on the iPhone 4S | The Startup Foundry

📌 TidBITS Just for Fun: Immaculate Reception, or, A MobileMe Mystery

“[T]here was a time when Americans traveling abroad would regularly check for mail and telegrams at the nearest American Express office; it was their link to home. Maybe the increasingly common Apple Stores have become the modern-day equivalent.” #

Great roundup of the stuff to think about as you’re preparing graphics for the iPhone/iPad. #

📌 Time since Opera Mini was submitted to the iPhone App Store

This is a good idea: a publicly-visible counter of an app submission. Adds some transparency to an otherwise opaque process. #

📌 Nimble Design - /the/path/of/most/resistance

“Apple is doing something rather daring with their new iPhone OS. They are essentially omitting features that people once took for granted in a typical computer. And one of the biggest things they’ve omitted is the visual file system [...] The end result is that regular folks are happier with their computers and that geeks are pissed that Apple has “dumbed down” the computer. [...] I’m hoping that devices like the iPad and iPhone contribute to the demise of the visual file system. I think its death in consumer devices will lower the bar for folks who just want to do stuff and get the computer out of the way.”<br /> <br /> I couldn’t agree more. #

📌 It's hard to like Android. - jerakeen.org

“[Android is] Linux vs Windows/MacOS, all over again. You gain Freedom by using an open platform, making life worse for yourself in a thousand tiny ways, any one of which can easily be dismissed, so they are. But it’s still worse.” Unfortunately, this perfectly mirrors my experiences with Android, too. I’m trying really hard to like my G1, but all it does is make me realize how much better my iPhone is. #

📌 SnapTell [iTunes Store Link]

By far the coolest iPhone app I’ve used yet: take a shapshot of a book, DVD, or album and the app recognizes it and tells you have much it is online. I tried it with all the books around my office, and it was 8/8 even with some pretty shitty photos. Totally falls into the “sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” category. #

📌 Instant Cocoa - pTerm

An iPhone port of PuTTY. Now that’s what I’m talking about! #

📌 Share Apps between iPhones » All Forces

I just assumed this was impossible. I’ll bet a later update breaks this loophole -- yay DRM! -- but for now it’s pretty nice. #

📌 furbo.org · Hello App Store

Good thoughts on the Apple Store. I disagree with the notion that a higher entry point leads to better quality, but overall I like Craig’s thinking here. #

📌 MobileScrobbler: AudioScrobbler client for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch

Awesome. This is why third-party development is a must: Apple’s never going to do this in-house, but it makes my iPhone that much more valuable to me. #

📌 Jannis Leidel » The Django admin interface optimized for iPhone/iPod touch

That’s awesome—I was just talking about this idea yesterday. #

📌 TidBITS iPod & iPhone: Apple Nearing iPhone Third-Party Developer Announcement

From any other source I’d call bullshit, but it’s Glenn Fleishman and TidBITS, and seems to line up with some rumblings I’ve been hearing from inside the Mothership. Who knows—anything’s possible... #

📌 Call Me Fishmeal.: iPhone & iPod: contain or disengage?

Wil articulates what every long-time Mac-head is feeling these days. I’m very afraid for the future of Apple—more than I’ve been at any other point. #

📌 livinghardknox » Blog Archive » Django and the iPhone

Sweet—someone wrote up the (simple) steps to getting Django running on an iPhone. Now I don’t have to! #
