The Google Mobile Blog has announced that the Google Mobile App for iPhone has been updated to include the Google Goggles feature, which uses your iPhone to help you to find out more about your surroundings simply by taking photos. To use Google Goggles in the updated version of the app, simply tap on the camera button to search with Goggles. Goggles will then analyze the image, highlighting anything that it recognises. You can then click on those results to find out more about the object, or place, highlighted.

The blog is very honest in saying that Goggles isn’t quite perfect yet, as although it is very effective when it comes to recognising landmarks, logos, books, DVD and game covers, it doesn’t yet work...

PayPal has updated its iPhone app today so that it will now accept checks via iPhone camera, according to TechCrunch, which interviewed PayPal’s Laura Chambers at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference in San Francisco. Chambers told the conference that with the updated app, the user will simply have to take a photo of the front and back of a check with their iPhone camera, to have the amount of the check added to their PayPal balance.
Some banks already have this facility, of course, and have done for some time, and Chambers points out that the facility was actually first introduced after the 9/11 attacks in New York, when so much of the financial infrastructure of the US was either shut down on purpose or hampered by the sudden demands on its systems. Legislation was...

This tweak here is pretty useful if you find the iOS Lockscreen annoying. This tweak will eliminate it making it go straight to your Springboard. The Lockscreen doesn't bother me really, but its also a waste of a few milliseconds of my time. For me, I find it pretty useless, I never hit the Home or Power button with my leg or anything in my pocket so theres no real point. If you are a person that does that, this tweak may not be for you. This would be categorized under one of the "personal choice" tweaks. You can find "NoLockScreen" in Cydia for FREE.

Well this sort of makes my new Apple TV useless. I love using my ATV for Netflix, it is actually one of the reasons I like it. I love the face that it is portable, and I can carry my Netflix anywhere, but now my iPhone can too.

Netflix just updated their application to support Video Out. That means you can hook your device up to your TV with the help of some special AV cables. These AV cables can be bought at Apple or go find some third party ones out there. Afterwards, you can plug in your iPhone or iPod Touch, fire up the Netflix app, and watch some great, cheap, streaming.

Editors Note: Netflix is one of the greatest app investments I've made.

Recently, the developers of CineXPlayer updated their app to be available on more devices. Before, CineXPlayer was only available on iPad but now you can use it on your iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4G. This app allows you to finally play your Xvid movies on your device, plus keep a library.

In CineXPlayer you are able to throw your videos into your library through sync. You can manage your videos, delete them, watch them or save them for later. So far, the app plays movie great, the quality is outstanding. I haven't found any flaws with it so far, but if for some reason it blows up my iPhone, I only lose $1.99....erm, plus an iPhone. I'm sure its safe.

CineXPlayer = The best way...

Macworld reports today that Capcom’s smash hit zombie smashing and hitting Xbox 360 game is coming soon to iPhone and iPod touch. With Dead Rising 2’s high profile release last week, it would seem like perfect timing to keep the momentum going with an iPhone Dead Rising game. According to Macworld, an entirely new game will be created from the ground up for the Apple hand-helds, although the game will have a similar storyline to the first Dead Rising console game, with the player taking on the role of journalist Frank West as he tries to make it through a nightmare week trapped in a mall that’s full to the brim with rampant zombies. Luckily Frank is able to use any object that he comes across in the mall’s many shops to pummel, pound, shoot and generally maim and...

After doing my unboxing and the epic story behind the HDMI cable that I had to find and buy at 2 AM, I finally got to sit down with the Apple TV. I hooked it up to my 47 inch Vizio 1080p capable TV and, as noted, it only outputs 720p. No surprise there but I was hoping for some magic. The Apple TV still looks great on my LCD. I would love for it to be as awesome as being able to replace my cable box, well, with netflix and other things I basically can. The pricing on the shows and movies are not for me, I much rather record my shows on my DVR.

Being a fan of the Netflix Watch Instantly feature, this will be a pretty decent addition to my living room, or possibly my desk. Nifty little bugger for $99, full...

I was a little skeptical on whether or not I should buy the Apple TV. After seeing that everyone around me was getting one and that there might be a Jailbreak released to the public sometime, I got excited. I started calling around Apple Stores trying to find it with no luck. Finally I looked on Craigslist and got it for about $25 over the price, not too big of a deal.

So after opening it I was disappointed in two things. One, there was no HDMI cable. I literally drove to 24 hour Walgreens looking for one at 2 AM, I got it in the end, set me back another $20. The second thing that ticked me off a little bit was that I didn't receive any Apple stickers, but in the end I found out they were well hidden in the...

Mashable reports today that MTV has released a new iOS app to help combat the serious problem of bullying. Called “Over the Line”, it is based around and built on the web page of the same name. MTV has launched the app in conjunction with National Bullying Prevention month in the hope of giving hope to teens in particular who might feel that they have nowhere else to turn. The app, like the website, gives teens the opportunity to submit their stories about being bullied, disrespected or hassled by their peers, with other users then being able to rate whether or not the incident was actual bullying, in their opinion, and to what degree it was over, on, or below the line. The submissions run the gamut of every type of bullying you can imagine, with the app and...
