After starting with New Zealand a few hours ago, the iTunes App Store is now populated with region specific TomTom apps. Here’re the US ones:

Each European App Store is also carrying a fifth TomTom application offering a more narrowly localized version for the respective countries at a lower (~$30-40) price than the complete Western Europe version.

  • Benelux (iTunes link): offered in Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg and covers those three countries
  • D-A-CH (iTunes link): Germany, Austria and Switzerland
  • France (iTunes link): France and covers France, Monaco and Corsica
  • Iberia (iTunes link): Spain and Portugal and covers Spain, Portugal, Andorra, Gibraltar, the major islands of the Balearic and Canary Island groups.
  • Italy (iTunes link): Italy, San Marino and Vatican City
  • Nordic (iTunes link): Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden and covers those four countries
  • U.K. & Ireland (iTunes link) - the U.K. and Ireland

Take a look at video demo.

AppStore app will guide you to find marijuana [AppStore, Video]



cannabis

As we know, with applications for iPhone has the ability to find anything. We can look for a job, locate friends or our service stations, but now you can also find the marijuana. The application is called Cannabis and it was approved by Apple.

The aim is fully legal as they contain a database of useful locations, where you can find the herb for medical purposes. As you have guessed it based on the geo-service and is able to show all the details on pharmacies, doctors, layers or organizations that sell or care for patients.

The rating of this app is quite poor (2.5 out of 5). Comments say this app doesn't work well.

App costs $2.99, here's an AppStore link.

purplesn0w: iPhone 3GS unloсk solution from GeoHot



purplesn0w

Geohot, the creator of purplera1n, has just released his own iPhone 3GS software unlock and named it purplesn0w. Who is purplesn0w for? If you own a jailbroken iPhone 3GS running firmware 3.0 and you want to unlock it to use it with another carrier (T-Mobile only in the USA), then purplesn0w is for you. Are you experiencing wifi/battery/other unlocking problems after using ultrasn0w? Then I highly recommend you try purplesn0w. Geohot says that it’s the best unlock out there.

purplesn0w doesn't run any deamon (resident app) on the iPhone, it just patches three files: CommCenter, lockdownd, and wildcard. You need an activated device in order to use purplesn0w, this is a minus.

Here is how to install purplesn0w:

  • Make sure you have an activated iPhone 3GS. If you have T-Mobile make sure you disable 3G in the settings.
  • Open Cydia, and add http://apt.geohot.com to your sources
  • Install the com.geohot.purplesn0w package
  • Watch for the success output in Cydia
  • Reboot your iPhone 3GS

Once you have followed the steps above, your iPhone 3GS should be unlocked.

Update: Geohot has also posted technical details of purplesn0w here along with the source code of purplesn0w. He plans to release an updated version of purplesn0w with hactivation support.

id Software's John Carmack today confirmed to Shacknews that the company plans to bring three of its Quake titles to the iPhone platform, though Carmack himself may not be heavily involved in the projects.  "We will be trying to put some other developers on the future classic titles," said Carmack. "I don't think I'm going to be doing all of the work on Quake, Quake 2 and Quake Arena on there."

The id Software provides an intense activity for the next year, with new projects every 2-3 months. Staremo a vedere. We shall see.

Easy way to enable tethering using Safari [Video]



Here's an extremely easy way to enable tethering on your iPhone 3G and 3GS (even on AT&T!) by just visiting a site on your iPhone's Safari. No jailbreaking needed. Here's where you go:

http://help.benm.at/help.php

Then scroll down to the Tethering & Internet Settings, then choosing your country and provider. This works for both AT&T and T-Mobile, and will let you install the appropriate configuration. Just be careful though, that AT&T doesn't officially sponsor this and might charge you extra for using tethering while you're not supposed to.

And if this disables visual voicemail on your phone, just go and reset your network settings, and it should be fixed. If that doesn't work, try updating your phone with an older version of the AT&T carrier settings.

AT&T Vs Pre: Internal Document



att-pre

This is an internal document from the iPhone carrier exposing the Palm phone for what it really is :)

For example, the iPhone sports a  "Thinner, lighter, bigger screen, metal and glass design" while the Pre is "Available in Black only; plastic casing.". Pre has "Limited free Wi-Fi access" because they don't get to use AT&T Hotpots. And so on :)
