Cali Lewis was kind enough to invite me on the latest episode of GeekBrief.tv to talk about Apple and the "will they brick the iphone update" that is coming.

Here is a link to the video.

Remember - wait two weeks before you upgrade the firmware of the iPhone if you have used App Tapp to install 3rd party Apps, or you have unlocked the SIM to work on another carrier.  Better to be safe than sorry.

TODAY in iPhone - Episode 34
Time to get Native on your App!

Dave in California, sounds off - Apple screws their best customers- US! Speaks for the masses and swears we won't buy a first gen product again. Ever. No really... then predicts Apple rebate might keep us happy.

Jimmy crack head wins the Vmoda headset.
Jawbone winter announced - winner has one week to claim prize.

Episode 33 feedback -
Greg says Rob's lost interest in iPhone (Rob disputes)
Dave in southern Cal tastes sour grapes

Rob announces- if you bought a phone in the two weeks before the price break - $200 rebate is yours!

iPhone update coming soon, Rob predicts - firmware that date should support iTunes  mobile, composite video out ( Matching iPod Touch) late September..
Rod daydreams of "copy" "paste" feature

You heard it here first - iTunes  mobile will not to support podcast/subscriptions ( one reason we still need our Macs. Our iPhones  are too young to take over the World)

Steve (iPhone newbie) wants in-ear headphones with clicker and to play .mp3 from his e-mail. Rob promises to look for an app - hasn't found one yet.

Reviews
Rivet iPhone Headset - Two Thumbs up (an understatement) no contest on this one folks- Rob's actually keeping this one!! Wow! Very comfy, no urinal drop woes,  blocks out background noise, switch works well.

Convert Ringtones: instructions available for 7.4 iTunes version ONLY (don't upgrade to 7.4.1 until after you listen to this!) Engadget's work around. Rob  walks you through it step by step. How to convert .mp3 to .aac to .m4a to .m4r

Jason - UK rumor launch date 15 December? Rob tries to dispel the myths - don't believe what you hear. Wait for the big Apple to tell all.

Tmobile $20 unlimited date plan for unlocked iPhone?

Jimmy in Maine e-mails Rob The Street.com article - Why Apple got it right (and what they got wrong going with AT&T)

Seven out of eight iPhones have been sold from Apple store. (Tell me again why Apple went with AT&T on this one?)

Software:
App Tapp - From Null River gets two thumbs way up - allows you to install  apps and play in airplane mode.. the first upload should be Community sources

Native apps
Doom= nothing like the real thing
Zune2= cute, not practical
iPong= (ditto)
Lights Out= Rob's on level 10- it must be good
Mobile Twitterific= work's great
Sketches= not practical, unless your 17 mo. old is cranky
Vnotes= finally! a voice recording app for your iPhone!
Send Song= email out songs to others (when can we listen to them from our Phones?)
Minesweep= not like the original... a bit too easy?
iLight= turns iPhone into the most expensive flashlight in America
iBrate= Rob turns red over possible female reviews? references HP broomsticks..

TODAY in iPhone -Episode 33
What would you do with an extra 200 dollars?

Rob gives us his speculations on...
Price drop on iPhone makes 1st gen. users swear. 8GB from $599 (69 days ago) to $399 now?! What the *#&&%??

Listener feed back? not this G rated show!

16g iPhone is out there... speculation as to when will it come out..

iPod Touch - the latest iPod is practically carbon copy of iPhone (without the Mail and Maps apps) without the phone and camera bits

iPhone unlocked- what does it cost you to carry it over to a different carrier (T*Mobile or other GSM network)?


Software:
iFuntastic v3.0.3
(no longer a test version!)
Rob asks for feedback from listeners who have gotten the app to work on the iPhone


Don't forget to Phone different!
