This is the iPod Touch's 4th installment into the game. Not only does it pack the same A4 Processor as the iPhone 4, but this badass device has HD Video Recording built in. The sleek design is way thinner than the iPhone 4s, keeping the metal back with the glass front. You will definately get all of you needs met by this device... except a phone. The 4G comes with iOS 4.1 preloaded with GameCenter. Did I mention the Retina display? Yup, you get your HD on as well with this device. iPod Touches are in stores now starting at $229.
Apple has just released iOS v4.1 for the iPhone 4! This update is packed with some new features that's sure to get you and your iPhone 4 excited. While your downloading, here's a quick overview of what to try out:

AppleInsider reports today that Apple has confirmed on its website that Game Center is not compatible with the iPhone 3G, although it will run on the second-generation iPod touch, meaning that the iPhone 3G ranks alongside the first-generation iPhone and iPod touch as the only iOS devices that can't run Game Center. Strangely enough though, as AppleInsider points out, unlike the first generation iPhone and iPod touch, the iPhone 3G is able to run iOS 4, which you would think would mean it would be able to run Game Center, but apparently not so. Even more interestingly, AppleInsider reports that up until last month, the second-generation iPod touch was also unable to run Game Center, when it was excluded, along with the iPhone 3G from a beta build of iOS...

Earlier I thought that my new iPod Touch or Nano Touch was going to be here today, but unfortunately it wasn't. This is the iPod Shuffle 4G that was announced at the September 1st event. Although the Shuffles don't see too much change over the years, VoiceOver is a nice change to the Shuffle line. Starting at just $49, the Shuffle is the perfect device on the go when you just want to "clip it and leave". Not much more to say about this simple device, stay tuned for the videos on the new iPod Touch 4 and the new iPod Nano Touch.

The two companies have joined forces to publish Billabong Surf Trip, an arcade-simulation surfing game for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Set in the world's best surfing haunts, the game features Billabong's top professional surfers, Andy Irons, Taj Burrow, Joel Parkinson and Tiago Pires, in the role of ambassadors who share helpful tips on how to rip and get tubed on waves for maximum performance. More gameplay details will be announced soon, but meanwhile here's Chillingo's head of publishing, Johnny Coghlan talking about the game:
A bunch of you have been asking what the theme on my phone was. Well, it took me awhile to find it again since I deleted Rock for a little bit so sorry about the delay. This theme is only found in rock and it is called iPro HD4. The theme is $2.99 and really cool because it creates theme icons for you. So no matter what, you are always on theme if you don't mind a little bit of color for icons that haven't been manually added. Great theme, looks great on my skinned-white iPhone 4.
Auto3G is a $5.99 tweak in Cydia that will save you loads of battery for the cost. This will allow your 3G radio, that likes to drain quite a bit of battery, to turn off while your phone is locked for a certain amount of time. Right when you turn your phone back on for usage, your 3G network comes back on instantly. During the time your 3G connection is off, your EDGE connection is still running for normal connections that don't take up too much battery. Hope this helped all of you asking for more battery!
This Cydia tweak will allow you to use your device while it is syncing to your computer. This is very helpful for people who never want to stop "iDevicing Around". You can keep texting, emailing, or using any of the other functions the iDevice offers when it is not connected. Great app to have for those of you who can't get away from their phones and iPods.
