The Guardian reports today on an iPhone app called the iStethoscope which it says has already been downloaded by more than three million people. The app was the brainchild of Peter Bentley, a researcher at University College London, and was originally only intended to be used as a toy. According to the Guardian though, the app has turned out to be much more than a toy, and is now being downloaded by over 500 users a day. Experts are already saying that the app has saved lives in remote areas.

The iStethoscope uses the iPhone's built-in microphone to monitor a patient's heartbeat when the iPhone is held against their chest. The iPhone is then shaken so that the user can listen to the last eight seconds of the...

VUnlock allows you to get out of your lockscreen with the push of a button, no really, a button this time. Instead of having to, normally "slide to unlock", you can now get into your device by just pressing either of the volume buttons. So lets say your phone is in your pocket and you want to save your valuble milliseconds by being able to press the volume button to unlock and get right to your apps before your hand is even done coming out of your pocket. Thats enough time saved to take part of a breath! This is just another one of the tweaks that you can have if you prefer it. It is free in Cydia so go check it out!

NoSpot is a friendly tweak in Cydia that allows you to get rid of your Spotlight on your Springboard. Spotlight is the feature when you swipe to the left on your Springboard and you can search throughout your device. This can get annoying and confuse your Home button a lot. I've seen people use Spotlight a lot and then people like me who don't use it at all. This is really just a preference, you all can choose to download it or not because it's Free!

With the start of the US Open tennis tournament in New York today, the US Tennis Association has launched an updated version of the official free tournament app, which is now fully iOS 4 compatible. The app, which is available for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, is designed to service both fans who are physically attending the event over the next two weeks, and those who are following the championship from home. The app features, among other things, live scores and completed match results, latest news updates from on and off the court throughout the tournament, and the augmented reality feature -"Around Me"- which is a "camera-driven experience" that lets the user see through...

Colin Gibbs who writes for the Giga Om Network has written up a nice article about a recent Apple patent application to identify the “hacking, jailbreaking, unlocking or removal of a SIM card” from a phone so the device can be located and its data erased.

This is aimed squarely at the people who are modifying/hacking their devices and giving themselves the ability to install apps not seen in the app store and other benefits.

The question is, should Apple really be focused on this? Apple has a sterling reputation, and with the exception of the recent iPhone 4 Antennae issue they've handled every mis-step in a great fashion....

Yesterday, you all saw that I got a package in from iCarbons that included a whole bunch of carbon fiber skins. Well, in this video I show you guys how to put it on and the end result of the white skin making my phone look like the white iPhone 4. In the end, I loved the look. I took off the white home button sticker, not because there was anything wrong with it, but because I thought it looked better with a black home button. I ended up taking off my bumper skin as well just because it didn't fit in a few of my tight cases. Overall its a great product, so stay tuned for the giveaway.
