iDisk update adds streaming iPhone music support

iDisk update adds streaming iPhone music support

Apple has quietly put into play a streaming music service, freeing iPhone users from the limited internal storage of their smartphones and instead allowing them to play content stored remotely in their iDisk cloud backup.  Spotted by Michael Robertson of MP3.com, the new service currently requires users to actively manage the transfer of files to the iDisk store - there's no automatic sync with iTunes, nor playlist support - and then select the files through the iPhone iDisk interface.

JailbreakMe gets FaceTime/MMS tweak; iPhone 4 unlock due shortly

JailbreakMe gets FaceTime/MMS tweak; iPhone 4 unlock due shortly

Yesterday's news of a simple, webpage-based Jailbreak solution for the iPhone 4, iPad and iPod touch took most of us by surprise, but the fact that over-demand crashed the JailbreakMe.com servers didn't.  Now they're back up, but if you managed to run your device through the jailbreaking process early yesterday then you might find a few issues remaining: namely, problems with FaceTime video calling and MMS messaging.

Apple: despite DMCA, jailbreaking will void your warranty

Apple: despite DMCA, jailbreaking will void your warranty

After yesterday's landmark DMCA ruling, all eyes were on Apple to see how the company would respond now that jailbreaking and unlocking devices is explicitly legal.  Unsurprisingly, they're not throwing open the doors and welcoming in the iPhone Dev Team with open arms; in a statement to Cult of Mac, an unnamed Apple PR person reiterated that the Cupertino company recommends users do not jailbreak their iPhone or iPod touch, and that doing so will violate their warranty.

iPhone signal tweaks compared; iOS 4.0.1 quietly fixes Exchange support too

iPhone signal tweaks compared; iOS 4.0.1 quietly fixes Exchange support too

We love a good colored diagram here at SlashGear, and so this comparison chart showing just how Apple has changed iPhone signal strength bar mapping in their latest iOS 4.0.1 update is tickling us nicely.  The handiwork of AnandTech reader Mike Escoffery, it shows the considerable margin by which Apple emphasized a "full bars" signal.  Meanwhile, while there was no mention of it in the iTunes release notes, iOS 4.0.1 also addresses Exchange ActiveSync problems.

“iPhone DSLR prototype” mounts Canon EF lenses, enrages purists

Want a guaranteed, sure-fire way to enrage DSLR enthusiasts?  Call your custom-crafted iPhone 4 mount that allows you to use interchangeable lenses an "iPhone DSLR prototype"; you'll soon have them queueing up to point you at the official definition of a single-lens reflex camera.  Still, we'll put aside nomenclature because there's something sturdily lovely about Jeremy Salvador's system, no matter what he wants to call it.

Firefox Home for iPhone & iPod touch hits App Store

Firefox Home for iPhone & iPod touch hits App Store

The cynic might say that Mozilla heavily previewed their Firefox Home app for iOS back in May so that, should Apple reject it, they could make a huge song and dance of it.  Happily that won't be necessary, since Apple's App Store guardians have approved the browser companion app for iPhone and iPod touch.  The concept is a little confusing at first glance: Firefox Home isn't a standalone browser, instead using Firefox Sync to bring your browsing history, bookmarks and open tabs from the desktop to your mobile device.

iOS 4.0.1 released to fix iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G signal meter

iOS 4.0.1 released to fix iPhone 4, 3GS and 3G signal meter

Apple's promised iOS4 update has been pushed out for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G.  iOS 4.0.1 apparently "improves the formula to determine how many bars of signal strength to display," after Apple discovered they had been using the wrong calculations.  Previewed earlier today in the iOS4.1 developer beta, the update is expected to make the iPhone's signal meter more accurate, but not address the hardware issue experienced by iPhone 4 owners where holding the smartphone in a certain way can significantly impair antenna performance.
