iPhone 2.0.1 update

While it’s not quite the iPhone 2.1 firmware that we are patiently waiting for, has released the iPhone 2.0.1 firmware update earlier this evening. As you can see in the image above, all Apple is telling us is that this release is all about “bug fixes” - you won’t find us arguing though, as we mentioned during the week on our Twitter and FriendFeed accounts, our problems got so bad that we had to have the Apple Store hook us up with a brand new altogether. So, yeah, we aren’t mad at bug fixes.

We’ve already installed the almost 250MB update on our iPhone 3G, and right off the bat, I notice that I am no longer getting the stalled keyboard bug, and also, when I launch NetNewsWire now, it actually works. That’s a first.

Let us know how the new firmware is treating you.


GTA IVWhen you read about this stuff it still seems incredulous. Officials in Thailand have banned Grand Theft Auto IV after a teen claimed to have murdered a cab driver after having seen it in the game. Thai newspapers report that the 18 year-old tried to steal the taxi then killed the 54 year-old driver when he fought back. Bangkok Police Capt. Veerarit Pipatansak claims that “he wanted to find out if it was as easy in real life to rob a taxi as it was in the game.” If convicted, the teen could face the death penalty, a high price to pay for a video game.

Which do you guys think is more ludicrous, the fact that the kid was influenced enough to commit a crime or that the officials think banning the game will stop the problem?

T-Mobile Fave 5In an effort to thwart terrorists, Sri Lanka plans to enact legislation that requires cell phone users to carry a certificate of ownership. It also means that they cannot lend their phone to others. The TRC (Telecommunication Regulatory Authority) says that the regulations will also affect wireless CDMA handsets. The latest estimates say that over 20,000 cellies are entering the country illegally every month. That puts a whole new slant on your fave five.

SpeedDateIf you are looking for a mate you can always check singles groups online or you can opt for speed dating in real life to quickly eliminate losers in 30 seconds. Now you can combine the two with sites such as SpeedDate and WooMe.

Stephen Stokols, chief exec. of WooMe claims, “If you meet someone you like, three minutes isn’t long enough. If you don’t like them, 30 seconds is too long.”

He is probably right. Both sites employ the method of ending a voice and video chat between 90 seconds to 3 minutes. Matching is based on profiles, and future lovebirds can decide by e-mail if they want to meet.  The method must be working. SpeedDate claims to have over 100,000 virtual dates per day while WooMe says they have up to 4,000 users at a time.
