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.

CNET's Crave Gadget Blog reports today on the iControlPad, which enables you to insert a jailbroken iPhone into a console-style gamepad add-on that is then connected via a sync cable. The iControlPad's designer, Craig Rothwell, told Crave that the device locks the iPhone securely in place with a spring-mechanism padlock. The device also has an integrated battery, which Rothwell says could greatly increase the iPhone's battery life. Although it looks like a pretty cool idea, the iControlPad is not officially supported by Apple, so therefore you can only run specially written games on it, and it will only work with a jailbroken iPhone. Basically then, it's really more of a prototype or "proof of concept",...

'80s arcade classic side-scroller R-Type has finally hit the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch. Retro-gaming fans both old and new will finally get the chance to relive the seminal '80s video-arcade experience on their iPhone/iPod touch, with this latest version of the game staying true to its roots, re-capturing the look and feel of one of the biggest arcade smashes from back in the day.

In the game, you get to pilot a futuristic fighter, the R-9a "Arrowhead", and attack endless waves of Bydo enemies, old-school, side-scrolling style. This new version includes all the features of the original. There are eight levels in total to fly through, and eight unique bosses to defeat along the way.

iCarbons were nice enough to send me a bunch of their white and black carbon fiber skins for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. I just put one on my iPad, while installation was little bit annoying, it is not the skins' fault, the iPad is just a darn big. But if you put maybe 5-10 minutes of work into it, it should look great. The sticky side has a very strong adhesive that allowed me to mark it all up with my fingerprints and it would still stick perfectly. The feeling of these skins is really cool as well. They have a big of a lightly rough/ gripped feel to them. Stay tuned for a big giveaway on these and tutorial on installing them on your iPhone 4.

This year at WWDC 2010 Netflix CEO announced that they were bringing Netflix to the iPhone. You would be able to watch your "Watch Instantly" Movies and Shows right on your iPhone. iPad did it, and it worked out pretty well. The iPhone version seems really small but thats just me from using the iPad. Netflix is a great program and this just adds a little more fun on the go. I highly recommend getting the $9 plan for a month or two just to watch some of the stuff they have on there, its worth it.

SBRotator is a nice trick that needs some TLC. This tweak from Cydia allows you to have a landscape orientation of your springboard. You can turn your phone all 4 orientations and it will turn with you. It is worth to currently check out and see if you want to wait for an update if this is important to you. A few bugs in this tweak, but if they can beat Apple to the punch of making a well working Rotator, they'll be in business. Thank You to the readers/viewers that suggested this.
