iFunBox updated for OS3.1 & iTunes9

September 19, 2009 Leave a comment

iFunBox is my favourite piece of Windows USB sync software for the iPhone and iPod touch.  Not only is it free, it’s also a lot easier for new users to pick up and use than messing with WiFi transfers over SSH.  It also allows those of us who have not jailbroken to see and play with our /Media file systems on our jailed devices.

iFunBox has just been updated to version 0.9 to work with the new 3.1/3.1.1 firmwares and iTunes 9.

LogMeIn Ignition – Control your pc/laptop from your iphone

September 6, 2009 Leave a comment

If you’re an iPhone user who needs remote access to one or multiple computers when you’re on the go, the folks at LogMeIn have a new application that will do the trick: LogMeIn Iginition. The application is actually specifically intended for IT personnel who need to monitor, access and provide support solutions on a remote basis, but it’s accessible and usable for any iPhone user with remote access needs.

You can get LogMeIn Ignition from the iTunes App Store for $29.99 — a bit pricier than most paid iPhone apps. As is true for most of LogMeIn’s applications, you must first have an account at LogMeIn’s web site and download LogMeIn itself, which is free, and which I consider to be the best remote control application for general purposes. You also need to install LogMeIn on any computers that you want to be able to remotely access, which is a quick process.

You can view a video demonstration of LogMeIn Ignition here. A centralized page in LogMeIn Ignition displays all of your accessible PCs and Macs, and it also stores all of the relevant passwords. The page shows you which computers are on and accessible, and which are not. By clicking on a particular computer, you can take control of the desktop, access files, perform diagnostics and more. If you’ve used LogMeIn before, you’ll recognize the process as being very familiar.

Of course, if you carry a laptop or netbook around, they’ll be better platforms for remote access, due to the small screen size of the iPhone. But if you’re away from your laptop and require remote access in a hurry, LogMeIn Ignition could be just what you need.

Here’s an exclusive video recorded by security cameras of an Apple Store located in Marlton, New Jersey who was robbed a few hours ago.

The five guys in 31 seconds took away:

  • 23 MacBook Pros

Despite the nightwatchman, there was a total loss of 60,000 $. We take advantage of this article to remind you that in two days, September 5, will open a second official Apple Store in Italy and return you almost in real time all the impressions of this big opening.

Apple rejects µTorrent controller iPhone app

September 3, 2009 Leave a comment

Click the image to open in full size.

We’ve talked before about ways to control a BitTorrent client from the iPhone, and some unofficial developers have gotten it working in a jailbroken way. But apparently that’s as far as we’ll get — µMonitor, a little iPhone app to control µTorrent (a popular BitTorrent app that I use pretty often) was recently submitted to the App Store, and Torrentfreak reports that it’s been rejected out of hand. This isn’t the first time something like this has come up: Drivetrain, another torrent remote control tool, was also rejected back in May.

Apparently Apple tells the developer that they are disallowing all types of BitTorrent-related apps “because this category of applications is often used for the purpose of infringing third party rights.” Often does not equal always, but technically that’s another point: it’s Apple’s App Store, and they can take their ball and go home if they want. Torrentfreak claims that the myNZB app technically does the same thing (it basically controls a newsreader that can be used to download large numbers of files, possibly in violation of copyright), but it’s the word “torrent” that Apple (and, likely, their content partners) have an issue with. Sure enough, a search of “torrent” on the App Store doesn’t bring up anything related to the BitTorrent technology.

You can still run µTorrent on your iPhone, although you’ll have to jailbreak it and dive into the Cydia repository, where it’s listed under “Utilities.” As for Apple’s stance, I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for things to change on this one — µTorrent isn’t even an app that enables BitTorrent downloading; it just makes it easier (by accessing a client that’s doing the work elsewhere), and if they aren’t willing to pay heed to these distinctions now, it’s not likely they’ll bother in the future, either.

New FaceBook iPhone App Update! FaceBook 3.02!

With still some bugs… yet another update is upon us. Though we do not know what this update fixes, just give it a try anyways. Perhaps it will fix previous bugs?

Update: If you see black bars in the Home Menu, exit Facebook and avoid using it for an hour. The bug is caused by the cache of the previous version which is self correcting.
