One of the great promises of iOS 3.0 was the External Accessory framework, which would allow a multitude of accessories to interface with Apple’s 30-pin dock connector port. It’s been slow in coming, but at long last those classic serial ports of yesteryear (such as RS-232) can finally connect to your iOS device.
I've always been pretty stubborn when it comes to resolutions, and something tells me I’m not going to find an app to convince me to start bettering myself on the day I’m most likely to be overweight, depressed, broke and/or hungover. So, instead of working on myself, I’ve resolved to use my iPhone to help my friends change. I call them: resoyoutions.
We have yet to meet a person who didn't find the way text bundles are priced as anything other than completely mercenary. Seriously? Our only options are the just enough (if you use sparingly) 200 or the waaaay too much (unless you refuse speaking on the phone and only text) 1500? No middle ground, AT&T? None?
This is precisely where third party app developers have stepped into the gap. And, boy, have they. There are nearly as many texting apps as there are fart soundboards.

After what seems like an eternity, Skype has updated their iOS app to version 3.0, bringing long-awaited two-way video calling -- and they’ve bested Apple’s own FaceTime by allowing such calls over 3G data connections.
If you own an iPhone or iPod touch with a built-in camera you probably enjoy the convenience of using the camera for both sill and video photography. We sure do, but Camera Roll can really get bloated. This can lead to longer sync times when you attach your device to iTunes.
By default iTunes will automatically sync any iPhone, iPad, iPod, or iPod touch when any of these devices is attached to your computer using a USB sync cable. If you'd prefer to manually sync your iOS Device you can. Here's how: launch iTunes, open iTunes Preferences, select the Device tab, and check the box next to Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically.
In case you hadn’t noticed, the App Store opened its doors for business again Tuesday, again serving up new releases and updates after the holiday freeze. The developers of Camera+ have shared their sales figures for the holiday, hitting a high of 78,000 on Christmas day alone.
