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

Today In iPhone: Episode  32 - Feedback and User Centric Interview

Intro:
Soundbyte from Danny (Raleigh) 7th in line on iPhone Day

Rob forewarns his Out-tro is an interview with Gavin (regarding the study circulating online about texting), and plugs his recent guest appearance on the Typical Mac User Podcast (with Victor).

Listener Feedback:
*John (Wisconsin) waited for longer line to form on iPhone Day?
*Kevin (fratpackpodcast.com) disputes Rob's stance (from last episode) on not purchasing anything on iPhone; as does *Ken (NJ); as does Jake (NYC) sites HTTPS; as does James who sites SSL 

iPhone tip of the week:
*John (Santa Claira) hacks the Belkin Power adapter to work with iPhone.
*Joe (minus Ben from Eugene, OR) gives us a new way to ignore calls and points out that if you utilize the dock you can plug in any headphones you want without the stinkin' $10 adapter. (Note: I tried this while it was plugged into my iMac with semi-disastrous results and would definitely recommend using the dock alone, NOT plugged in to anything else!)
*John (Rochester) having problems with his WiFi home connection (using Belkin router) – update fixed it lickety split!

Q and A:
*Kevin (fratpackpodcast.com) wants the skinny on sports pages for scores/ stats on games (the lite version please). Rob delivers iPhone Sports Scores page on silver platter. (More to come on next show)

Feedback:
* Alvin (Virginia) loves his Plantronics 640 Bluetooth headset, says comfortable with glasses on!
* Randy (iphone-VT.com) driving in his Prius (sadly) notes that hands free audio not currently possible in his car. Uses Apple earbuds frequently and shares how to wake iPhone from sleep
* M(something something?) Paul(?) from Pittsburgh asks about iFuntastic, do you lose data on phone? Is there a way to backup notes? Rob answers no reset needed for first download, and promises iFuntastic version 3 coming out soon!
*Tommy (LA) having probs with phone after doing the update.
*Former Windows user says that he used screen protector on Windows mobile phone and had problems with his phone. Rob puts out a call: if you are having screen issues with your iPhone, please call in and give your specific details: what case are you using, are you using a screen protector (and which one) and what is your screen number (5 or 7)?

Software:
iFuntastic – Version 3 coming out soon! Drag and drop games, ringtones, more!

Contest
JawBone Bluetooth Headset giveaway in a little over a week!

Out-tro:
Gavin (of the User Centric Study) does an interview with Rob (warning- this Out-tro is actually a show in itself- 30 min long)

Today In iPhone: Episode  31- I am feeling Blue -- tooth that is

Intro:
Soundbyte from Ben and Joe (not to be confused with the ice cream hippies) from Eugene, OR on iPhone Day

FACT or FICTION? Follow up to the web rumors that man had his thumbs surgically altered for iPhone- prove to be false (whew- I (stacey)  was worried it would become a trend)

iPhone Tips:
*Alan (Newport) tells us how to lighten our wallets without spending a dime by scanning membership cards into iPhone
*Ken (Maine) gives activation tips for rural listeners just out of Edge netwark range
*Chris warns that the screen dot issue is random and not specific to a verision 5 or 7.

Q and A:
*Alan (Newport) disappointed in Bluetooth headset- can't listen to music / audiobooks through his headset. Jonathan (CO) Uses cassette adapter in car for audio listening and Bluetooth for calls.. Is there a better way? Rob found a hack for streaming audio to your Bluetooth Headset
*When will next patch be released? Why Rob is holding out for stereo blue tooth headset, and his guess as to firmware release dates.
*David (Birmingham) questions hands free streaming. Rob notes the Prius already streams (wants listener feedback) and Scoscehe has a universal Bluetooth receiver for stereo. Will iPhone recognize these devices?
*Are iPhone purchases through Safari safe? Rob breaks it down by kilometers and gives a warning
*Is there danger in using non iPhone specific accessories in a car? Rob answers – danger, what danger? And dishes about Griffin FM transmitter and his Bose dock.
*Chris in CANADA is dying for release date info. Rumor is Q4, but you could blindfold yourself, spin around and throw a dart at the calendar and come up with a better guess. Rob doesn't buy Q4.
* Ray in Philly heard about a 16 G iPhone ? Rob believes it's possible for the European crowd as early as November!
*Listener wants ringtones through iTunes. Rob directs to Hack The iPhone for Custom Ringtones
*Jody (Atlanta) wants to buy second gen iPhone- when's it coming out? Rob wagers a vasectomy on release date. Warns, stop chasing the white rabbit.

Apps:
*RockLighter.com – wins award for most useless app
*AddPhone - Iphone Application Search Engine up to 447 apps and counting!
*MockDock – fake iPhone doc controls for your favorite apps

Listener Feedback:
*Listeners call using Jawbone
*Alan rips apart two earphones (literally)
*More Jawbone soundbytes from various listeners –
*Joe (Eugene, OR) thrilled to be first to get iPhone at his local store
*Ed (CA) gets lucky, his touch sensors malfunctioned and AT&T game him new phone. Moral: Apple backs it's products.
*Listeners report screen issues, dead spots
*Mark (NJ) corrects Rob, lithium ion vs lithium ion polymer battery
*Guy gets crapy job to buy a Mac (take another drink from the well my friend). Rob shares his crapy job story, wants yours too (no vulgarity please).
*youngest known lister, Mitch (13), saving for an iPhone gets pat on the back from Rob

Product Review & new contest:
*Rob dishes about the Jawbone's audio quality, background noise levels, comfort and even packaging.

*Speaking of contests… xxx xxxxx is the vModa headset winner and has one week to claim his coveted prize!

Detailed Show Notes for Episode 29 - From Stacey in Youngstown

Wed, 1 August 2007
Today In iPhone: Episode 29
Never blame on Malice what can easily be blamed on incompetence –

Intro:
Soundbyte from JoJo (Miami) on iPhone Day

Chuck Hudson disputes rumors that iPhone My eBay is illegitimate. Rob apologizes for his candid comment to a listener (and explains what he meant), praises the site.

iPhone tip of the week:
*Mike explains how to check mins without connecting to the 'net.

Q and A:
*Edward (Virginia) asks about iFuntastic. Rob exhorts the ease of use to changing ringtones, moving buttons. (Warning crops up later in show)
*Sebastian follows up his games Q (previous episode) with profit concerns for Apple. Rob answers- no worries, and takes off his hat to the (sweet) Bejeweled creator, Arkadiusz.
*Danny (Miami) waited in line 26 hours for his prize possession, and wonders why Safari is cheating on him and crashing. Rob nudges him to update the phone, as the first iPhone update (1.0.1) fixes Safari bugs and stability issues. Rob warns, however, you will loose unsynced elements from iFuntastic (users beware).
*Adam wonders why can't he view his video podcasts. Rob explains how to get the full Monty (audio and video at the same time! Oh my)

Feedback:
*Tricia (windy NYC) happy with Apple's Bluetooth headset. Rob questions differences between it and Jawbone (invites listener feedback)
*Jorge (Miami) loves his iPhone
*Gina (Key West) checks in on iPhone Day while being checked out by a police patrolman.
