Interesting research from Ryan Grove at Yahoo. I was not aware that MobileSafari didn’t support Last-Modified and ETag headers until iOS 4.?
Woot CEO Matt Rutledge:
Other than that, we plan to continue to run Woot the way we have always run Woot — with a wall of ideas and a dartboard.
I love these iFixit guys.?
Tell me ?I told you so? in six months, but Bloomberg?s exciting news that two dudes said something about the iPhone coming to Verizon is false until we see hardware and there has been no hardware. Apple picked GSM because it is an international standard. CDMA, the system used by Verizon and Sprint, is about as international as American beer ? both are considered weak and both are reviled.
It’s true that a Verizon iPhone would require new hardware. But that’s not a holdup. I’m nearly certain that a Verizon-compatible iPhone is pretty much like the Intel-compatible version of Mac OS X — something that Apple has kept going all along, ready to put into production when, if ever, its time comes.
It’s all strategy and negotiations. I wouldn’t have been shocked if they’d gone to Verizon a year ago, and wouldn’t be shocked if it doesn’t happen for another two or three years. But whenever the time comes, hardware won’t hold it up.?
Count me in.?
They like it. (One tidbit that jumped out to me: the built-in Notes app garnered unusually low scores.)?

This is simply amazing. At the risk of being labeled a fanboy by Dvorak, one simply has to give credit where credit is due. The only question is who deserves the lion’s share of the credit: Apple or Majek Pictures?
When Steve Jobs announced that the new iPhone 4 would have HD video capabilities, and that Apple would be releasing iMovie on in the App Store, everyone’s first impression was that the Flip was dead. What was not expected was that within the first few days of the product being available to the public, such a well put together movie short would be comprised entirely on the iPhone using the new iMovie App.
If you have not already seen this, you have to check it out for yourself. “Apple of My Eye” is a movie short shot and edited entirely on an iPhone 4. That’s right, full production on the iPhone. Watching the behind the scenes clips that follow the short, you will see that the folks over at Majek Pictures do have skills. They did have some sophisticated rigging that was used to maneuver and hold the iPhone steady, but still. In an exhausted testimonial, the editor Anna Elizabeth James admitted that it only took her fourteen hours of tedious pinching and tapping to get the whole thing done. Perhaps she should have checked out TheAppleBlog first to understand what the potential health risks were before she started. All the same, I am glad she didn’t.
You've updated your iPhone 3G to iOS 4 and it's reeeeeaaally slow. Here are steps for rolling it back to OS 3.1.3.
