I was over at iPhonehacks.com and came accross possibly one of the coolest iPhone mods I have seen ever I think. Now the modding scene isn’t one of the biggest on the iPhone but to be honest there has never really been much there to mod when the iPhone looks so beautifully expensive anyway

Something I came accross on Youtube and the modmyi blog was a cool app called trimensional, it is the first app to render 3D graphics and it works supprisingly well. If you have watched the video then you will see that it does not use complex systems but just the screen and the front facing camera. When running the app all you have to do is hold the screen up to your face with full brightness and the front facing camera builds the pictured determined on the light.
Unfortunately you can only use this if you have the iPhone 4 because it requires the camera, never the less a very cool and different app for the iPhone
There has been alot of complaints about the new iPhone 4 and signal issues reportedly changing the way you hold it. Really all in all it seems like it is a bit of a design flaw having the aerial on the side as Apple apparently are having tons of complaints emailed to them. You may of seen in the news recently an email to Steve Jobs from an angry customer saying when he holds his iPhone a certain way he loses signal, Steve Jobs reply was “dont hold it like that”
Anyway, the fix that alot of people are doing and it seems to be working for around 50% of users is a simple case of re-seating their sim card. Apparently the sim tray that the sim card sits on does not make the micro sim sit perfectly and taking it out and re-seating the micro sim is seemingly helping alot of users.
The picture below points out the problem, macrumours reports that majority of the problems are from the metal contact on the micro sim touching the steel tray. Users over on their forums are using electrical tape to tape the sim tray metal side to stop such contact but are reporting mixed results. Surely Apple should of made the sim tray plastic?
By the looks of this video which was London’s Regent Street I would say that we dont have to long before we hear that they are completely sold out. We were told that near enough every shop that had the iPhone in stock had massive lines outside with people desperate to get there hands on the new iPhone
I would say by the looks of things already the iPhone 4 is going to be in short supply for a good couple of months and the sales figures must be astronomical, surely this has overtaken all previous releases?
Just a quick demo I cam across on youtube showing the amazing quality of this film, shame the camera does not stand still for more than a second! I am very impressed!
Today I rang O2 customer services inquiring about there early upgrade scheme and only available in store and it seems they are telling a few white lies. The customer services advisor said I could order the iPhone tomorrow over the phone and have it delivered when the website clearly states its only available in stores….. Naughty naughty
Only one downside to this though, they said I would have to pay £390!! Thats £300 to pay off the rest of my contract and £90 for the new phone, the contract remainder is set at a basic flat fee of £20 a month. So I have a fair few months left!
2 days and most people will be ripping open this box in excitement! Shame we was unable to pre-order in the UK as some US customers have received emails saying their iPhone has been dispatched and will be with them a day early!
I’m just crossing my fingers the UK get enough stock to allow me to early upgrade with O2
Well with the release of iPhone OS 4.0 SDK last night, developers started crawling through all the source code to see if they could come up with any more clues on what the new iPhone may contain. They came across some video coding within the software which contained this 1280×720 resolution which is 720p, this was linked to the video camera. So looks as if we will be receiving 720p video recording which is a great leap for Apple as new phones are just starting to release this feature.

Alot of people will read this and think whats the big deal about this conference, well this will be the conference that will “officially” announce the new iPhone. The conference has been moved forward from previous announced dates and im pretty sure this is because what has happened with the prototype phone that was lost
Apple have announced the dates for the conference being the 7th to the 11th of June
Today an iTunes update has been released, it looks as if it is safe to update but usual advice goes out to all jailbreakers to not update as it may cause problems with future jailbreaks
MuscleNerd the developer of “spirit” which will jailbreak possibly OS 4.0 tweeted
In general, those using *any* userland JB should avoid iTunes updates, since iTunes can detect & remove it.

Today’s 9.1.1 iTunes is safe for PwnageTool&redsn0w. But those hoping to use userland JBs (like Spirit) should hold off.
