Unfortunately, it was first announced at CES that Windows 7 BETA would be available to the general public on Friday at 3pm but it got delayed due to “system overload…” and now Microsoft’s back in full force after adding more servers to handle the demand.
Head to the Windows 7 site to see what you need to download and the steps you need to take before putting the beta on your PC.
The Dev-Team has finally released the unlock for the iPhone 3G and it’s compatible with firmware 2.2. In fact, having firmware 2.2 is required. The version of this unlock is listed as 0.9, so it’s still a beta version, but word is that it’s working like a charm for a whole lot of people.
head to the Dev-Team’s blog to get full instructions on how to free your 3G iPhone.
Let’s forget that the economy is about to collapse and people are running short on disposable income. Amazon doesn’t seem to care as they’ve just released an iPhone app that will help us to buy more useless crap.
When you upload a photo, Amazon’s Mechanical Turk workers try to match the photo up to products on sale on Amazon.com. You will get results back in 5 minutes to 24 hours, and you’re susceptible to human error. It should be interesting trying to buy one HDTV and getting the link for another. Good luck, people.

Merry Christmas, young man! You’ve just been blessed with a free copy of Final Cut Studio 2 straight from Cupertino. A Greenwich High School wrote a letter to Steve Jobs asking for the educational discount on a copy of Final Cut Studio 2 and ended up getting the damn thing for free. Lucky lad, aren’t ya?
Richard Townhill, Director, Pro Video Product Marketing replied to the boy asking for the mailing address. His Steveness gets another pinching of the cheeks.
Read the sent letter and reply below. (more…)
The new firmware update for your precious iPhone has hit iTunes. The 246 MB package gives you Street View, over-the-air podcast downloading, and some much-needed bug fixes. Also, public transit, walking directions, and the ability to share your location via email are all making their way to the iPhone leaving us content for the moment.
There are lots of other upgrades so head to iTunes and download the new firmware and let us know how it goes.
Damn, so close. Scandinavian wireless carrier TeliaSonera is planning a homegrown application that will grant multimedia messaging functionality to the handset. Let’s hope the application makes it through Apple’s approval. After that, it’s only a matter of time before it lands in the App Store in the US.
With the Bold now out, and the Storm releasing tomorrow, this quarter’s looking good for Blackberry and RIM. It’s looking good for BB users as well. Today, Google just updated its Google Sync app for Blackberry to give over-the-air contacting syncing.
Previously, the app was only able to sync up calendars between the cloud and RIM devices every two hours. Happy Thanksgiving to BB users!

Google’s iPhone Search app is live, so head to iTunes and grab it from the App Store. The guys over at Gizmodo have already tested it out and given some screen shots.
“Gizmodo” was understood, surprisingly, as was “bear market” and “bare ass”. That’s right, it was smart enough to tell the difference between the words bear and bare, depending on the context. Also super cool?
Grab the app HERE.
For people on the go, a notebook (obviously) is the best way to go. For people on the go, a 17″ display that gives you a numberpad is not the way to go. I travel with an 11″ display and when I’m punching numbers, I’m left without a numberpad for ease of use.
For Mac users, this dilemma is gone with the help of a new iPhone app called numberkey. Perfect for heavy duty spreadsheet users, this nifty new application for the iPhone and iPod Touch lets you use your mobile device as an ad-hoc numeric keypad for your Mac. Just install Balmuda’s Numberkey connect software onto your Mac, then grab the mobile app from the App Store for $1.99. The two pieces of software communicate via Wi-Fi, adding a familiar 18-key numeric keyboard to your Mac without wires. Not bad, right?
