PCWorld has an interesting story today about iOS 4's possibly excessive demands on iPhone and iPod touch batteries. Many iPhone 3GS and iPod touch owners (including myself!) who have upgraded to iOS 4 have noticed that their battery is draining much faster than previously since they installed iOS 4. PCWorld says that some users are even reporting that their battery life has been slashed in half. Some have blamed multitasking for draining the extra power, but this can't be so as users with devices such as earlier iPod touches that don't support multitasking are still experiencing the mysterious power drain.
PCWorld trawled the Apple tech support forums for more information on the topic and found that Apple has been suggesting a full restore as a solution to...

Yesterday Apple started airing their new Facetime commercial on TV. Today, they posted the commercial on the web for everyone to watch. We've seen some of this footage from the Facetime "documentary" that Apple posted on their site after the keynote.
Personally, Facetime is awesome and a great idea. It's really sad that it is so hard to acquire the new iPhone 4. Give it a few months until the phone is really common, Facetime will be a hit, especially if they ever enable 3G Facetime(or 3G Unrestricter will do it).
One of the readers over at TiPB has received his iPhone 4 dock from Apple($29.00). For those of us who have docks for any of the previous iPhones, keep them! We will be posting a tutorial on how to make your old iPhone dock, a new iPhone 4 dock.
UPDATE: Sorry guys, Winner will be announced at 12 AM that was a typo.
So it has been a long week, the majority of us have our iPhone 4s and everyone else either wants one or trying to get their hands on one. Whether you have one or not, you can enter the Giveaway for the Griffin Reveal iPhone 4 Case!. It literally takes seconds to enter and in the end, you might have a case to fix your iPhone 4 reception problem for the price of FREE!
So click the link below or the image above to see and follow the 4 quick steps:...
Most of us are still waiting for the iPhone 4 Jailbreak, it's not here yet. But since we don't have Winterboard(or whatever they might change the name to), we need a way to differentiate our Springboards from others.
Now, this trick may not be as cool as a theme on your iPhone 4, but it will do for now. What it does is it allows you to put Emoji characters on your Springboard titles of your folders. In the end, it's less of a trick and more of a tip but hell, it looks cool!
There are tons of Emoji apps, here are links to two FREE ones that have worked for us: Emoji Free!...
Now we have all seen the update for Real Racing and seen it on the beautiful Retina display. But, has anyone done a comparison? Here at iPhone4Forum.NET we were interested in the difference so we made a video to go along with it!
If your reading this site I'm sure you are aware that some people are having an issue with the iPhone 4 and it's reception. The reception can vary greatly depending on how you hold it, where you hold it, etc.
One widely accepted solution is to use the Apple "bumper" case which prevents you from making direct contact with the antenna and thus shorting it out/grounding it.
There are many who think Apple's solution to: "Just hold it different" shouldn't be the acceptable solution to this problem... so instead they are suggestion that Apple should make good by giving out the bumper cases to every iPhone 4 customer.
Do you agree? Disagree? If you would like one, Gizmodo has a petition going to try and get the mass effect going for that cause. To participate, follow...
Developers seem to be taking their time with releasing iPhone 4-enhanced games, there have only been a handful so far, but Firemint has announced a new update for its Flight Control game that it says takes advantage of the new iPhone 4 and iOS 4's capabilities. The update is free if you already own the game, and the actual game is only $0.99 anyway, so well worth splashing out on to make your iPhone 4 look extra awesome.
Flight Control has already been a huge success, selling over 2 million copies and earning a whole bunch of awards and honors, including iPhone Game of the Year from Pocket Gamer, and this latest version is sure to tempt lots of brand new iPhone 4 owners.
The game's high-res graphics have now been optimised for the Retina display, and you can...
