Business Insider is getting pretty excited about their hands-on experience with an app that brings you 3D movies on your iPhone. According to their preview of the 3DeeCentral app, which provides online access to a 3D movie store, it’s “awesome!” And the guy in the YouTube video clip that we have for you seems pretty impressed too! The app comes from a company called Spatial View, and has just been submitted to Apple for approval. In order to use the app, you first have to slip a screen over your iPhone’s screen, which enables you to see the 3D video without having to wear special glasses. The screen will set you back around $20 when it goes on sale later this fall, when it will initially only be available for...

MacRumors reports today on several stories about the mayhem that the demand for the iPhone 4 has been causing in China. According to one story in the Wall Street Journal, scalpers are stopping customers as they leave the Apple store in Beijing’s Sanlitun Village mall, then taking them round the corner to a quiet part of the mall and offering them an iPhone 4 in its original packaging that the scalpers bought earlier in the week, often with a mark-up of 10 percent or more.

Another report quoted by MacRumors, on M.I.C. gadget, says that anger over scalpers snapping up any available iPhone 4s as soon as they arrive in store are starting to cause unrest, leading to the store being closed for a short time yesterday, after fights broke out between scalpers and...

MuscleNerd from the Dev Team successfully "Jailbroke" the Apple TV today. Apple TV is not even available in in all Apple Stores yet and it has already been "SHAttered". This means that Apple TV can have the ability to run 3rd party applications like we see in Cydia or even the App Store. Of course, the App Store is censored by Apple so Cydia seems like the best bet for right now. In a recent interview with Steve Jobs, Steve talked about how the Apple TV might have an App Store one day.

This brings endless possibilities the new device and even brand new since we've never seen an Apple TV running iOS until now. The Jailbreak is long away from being released, so for now, you should just forget about it for a bit...

Recent news came up from a Q & A with @pod2g. You all should know @pod2g as one of the developers and voices of the Chronic Dev Team. Well everyone waiting for the Jailbreak for 4.1 to release with the SHAtter exploit, we should be there soon. These devs work day and night to bring everyone these Jailbreaks, they work hard and deserve more.

If the Chronic Dev Team thinks something is not ready to be released yet, its not ready to be released. Would you rather have a working Jailbreak or another Failbreeze?

Recent news in the new iOS 4.2 Beta 2 build, the iPad might be getting a tethering feature right in the Settings app. Now, this feature should have been there from the start, there is no reason that we shouldn't have tethering. Now there is a strict cap on a lot of users accounts that only allows that up to 2GB of data. Now, if we go over that data by tether to an iPhone or a laptop, I believe that is our own fault?

Tethering for the iPad will only be available in some countries around the world. For now, we know that US is not supported, we don't even know if this will be in the final build of 4.2, they could just be testing it or a goof up. Hopefully we will see more info on this when iOS 4.2 comes out in November.

Cool new thing in iOS 4.2 Beta 2 was added to the App Store. Although it is not a big update, it is very useful if you're a fan of Game Center. As you can see in the pictures, Games in the App Store that are supported by Game Center will now have Game Center badges. This is really neat because even the PS3 did not have this for awhile on their boxes when they released trophies.

Alll of you Game Center and Achievement Junkies can get your fix when 4.2 finally launches. Of course, if you have a developer account you can try it out now.

CNET reports that Angry Birds has had its first major update for many weeks today. Version 1.4.2, or the “big fat update” as Rovio is calling it, of one of the most addictive iPhone games ever, includes a whopping 15 new levels, support for the iPhone’s Retina display, as well as support for Game Center. Also included in the update is a new golden egg sound board, and localisation for efigs, Chinese and Japanese, plus the game now has optimised memory usage. It’s already one of the funniest, most charming and fun games around, and if you’re already a fan you’re in good company, as UK Prime Minister David Cameron recently announced that he can’t stop playing the game! We know how he feels!

You can download the Angry Birds update for free if you already have...

Gaijin Game's fantastic retro game, Bit.Trip Beat, finally gets released for iOS devices today, courtesy of publisher Namco Networks. Fusing Pong with interactive visual beats, each level in the game features its own original chiptunes song that builds as the player deflects the onslaught of spectacular retro beats flying at them. Although that all might sound pretty simple, it's incredibly addictive stuff, with the beats all having different behaviors that represent multiple challenges, including a boss battle at the end of each level. As far as multiplayer action goes, up to two (for now, but in a future update this will be increased to four) players can join cooperatively via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi - each with...

Pocket Gamer is reporting today that popular Call of Duty iPhone game, Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies, has just had its price slashed to £2.99/$4.99 in the App Store, to coincide with a brand new update. Today's update, Version 1.5.0, includes a new map, Der Riese (The Giant), as well as unlocking maps Verruckt and Shi No Numa, which were previously only available as DLC. New zombie variants have also been introduced, and the zombies can now climb ledges, the pesky devils! And as if that wasn't making things hard enough for you, the humble player, the update has improved the zombies' AI, especially during crowd situations in large areas. New achievements have also been added, as have Monkey Bombs, which attract nearby zombies and lure them away from you....

This is the Speck Fitted, Darkest Tartan Plaid style. The case is two pieces of plastic that fit tight on the iPhone 4. The Speck Fitter is really light and should add too much bulkiness to your phone. The two pieces easily snap together and stay on tight. The back of the case is made out of fabric on top of plastic to give it a bit of style. This case comes in many different patterns, check them out in the link below.
