Rumors about release of the native Gmail application from Google have been circulating for about three years since Apple launched the App Store. Bloger, MG Siegler claims that Google “is on the verge of launching their native Gmail app” and have likely already submitted it to Apple for review. If the company approves the application, it should be released soon.
The native Gmail app will likely bring other key functionality as well: like Priority Inbox and one-click starring of messages. Other possibilities include some of the stuff Google is about to roll out for Gmail proper: like contact icons, better threading, and deep searching functionality. Maybe there will even be some Google+ integration, which Google is also hard at work on for Gmail.
After the iPad launch in early April, Google created a formatted version of Gmail for iPad that uses its HTML5-based platform in order to create a 2-column format which is similar to the one used for Apple’s Mail on iPad. After the launch Google remarked that the process of testing interface design and features of iPad Gmail was still on, and today we have a new proof that the testing isn’t over yet.
The present 2-column interface of the Gmail for iPad is going to be supplemented with a new full-screen window that will appear over the Gmail window and will make it easier to write emails on iPad.

Yesterday Google has announced a new web UI for tablet devices like iPad and others. As you can see from the screenshot above some ideas were taken from Apple's Mail for iPad - the inbox is situated to the left of the screen and the messages appear on the right side.
Google's Product Manager Punit Soni also reported that iPad comes with such pre-installed Google services like Google Search in Safari, YouTube app and Maps app.
It looks like in spite of a tensity that can be observed in the Apple-Google relationship the partnership between these companies is still pretty tight.

It looks like Apple has started banning iPhone hackers from the iTunes App Store.
A few day ago Sherif Hashim, the iPhone developer and hacker, tweeted that he had found an exploit in the latest iPhone OS 3.1.3, which could enable the unlock on 05.12.01 baseband for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G. Yesterday he has been banned by Apple for the so called "security reasons". It seems that Apple is quite angry! Here is what Sherif gets when he tries to access App Store from his iPhone:
Sherif Hashim’s Tweets:
"Your Apple ID was banned for security reasons", that's what i get when i try to go to the app store, they must be really angry ))))
and guess what my apple ID was, "firstname.lastname@example.org", what a fool was me not to notice )), can't help laughing, they are babies ))
@sherif_hashim lol, they did that to my ih8sn0wyday[@t]googmail.com too. (right after I posted XEMN)…

The service is new, and many people discuss on how it will affect on Twitter and social networks popularity. But it is important that Google made iPhone fully compatible with Buzz in spite of a tense Google/Apple relationship.
