Apple has just unleashed the magic that is iOS 4 to the masses. If you are running an iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, or the latest iPod touch—get to downloading so you can enjoy all the new features. Of course, it’s also available for download for the iPhone 4, but, that’s still three days away.
Apple has decided to retire the iPhone OS name with version 4.0, as they’ve just announced at the WWDC 2010 keynote. The new name will be iOS 4. It makes perfect sense, since the iPad runs iOS as well (as does the iPod touch,) and isn’t a phone.
iHome has been synonymous with iPod and iPhone alarm clocks for years now, and they recently released their new iP90 dual alarm clock system for the Apple devices. If you’re an owner of an iPhone or iPod and you are looking for your next clock radio, should the iP90 be your next purchase? At $99.99 (or $85.30 on Amazon) it isn’t an impulse buy. Journey with us as we review the iHome iP90 after the break for our thoughts.
Ever since the iPad was announced, one of the many things users had been waiting for was a way to jailbreak the thing. Well, your iPad jailbreak method has arrived in the form of the free Spirit download. It’s an untethered hack, and it works with any activated iPhone OS device, including iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, as long as they are running iPhone OS 3.1.2, 3.1.3, or 3.2. iPad users, listen up—the people behind Spirit say that things are still a little shaky on that end, and any errors or crashes may result in you having to do a factory restore. Now go and download the software, and proceed at your own risk!

Wi-Fi Sync is an iPhone app that we are absolutely hoping and praying makes it into the App Store. Why? Well, take a look at the video above. Basically, it solves a problem that we’ve been begging Apple to solve for years now—we want to be able to sync our devices with our computers over the network, rather than having to be tethered to a USB connection just to get our latest tunes and apps onto our phones and iPads. Wi-Fi Sync seems to be a nice, easy, and elegant solution to making that happen. You just pair your computer with your phone through the Wi-Fi Sync software, and you are good. Our only fear is that Apple will reject the app, since you’d think if they wanted Wi-Fi syncing to be available on Wi-Fi devices like the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, they’d have already done it. Still, we’re keeping our fingers crossed.
If you’re looking for something with a SCOTTEVEST flair, but made with denim, take notice of what WTFJean has going on. They make jeans with specially-fitted pockets, lined with microfiber, meant to house your iPhone or iPod touch. In addition, they even have pockets meant to hold on to USB sticks, which we guess the pockets on your regular jeans are no good for? Oh, also, while they’re available in both male and female versions, if you’re a dide, it goes you some frontal padding for protection. Huh.
Anyhow, these will be on sale on May 2nd for $80.

The Mikey Professional iPod Recorder is a simple mic that connects to the dock connector of an iPod classic, iPod touch, or iPod nano. Unofficially, it may also support the iPhone as well, which we will test out and put into a future episode of Bleeding Edge TV. In the meantime, check out this unboxing video of the Mikey, a product of Blue Microphones, as we give you an up-close look at the product.

We were able to catch up with Dual, a company that is bringing GPS functionality to the iPod touch. Get a look at the Dual iPod touch GPS add-on, which also acts as an external battery for the iPod touch as well, and check out how it works with the Dual GPS app, as well as every other iPod touch app that requires GPS. This is definitely one to watch.
A big thank you to Bing for sponsoring Gear Live’s CES 2010 coverage.
Remember that awesome iPhone credit card processing device from Square that we told you about a few weeks ago? Well, Kevin Rose just put up a video showing the Square app and iPhone hardware in action. Give the video above a look, as it’s definitely pretty slick. However, we’d love to see them make that credit card dongle a bit more stable before launch. The product is still in beta, but we can’t wait to see this go mainstream.
