 A multitude of downloadable programs will launch for iPhone and iPod Touch devices in early July, with Apple’s release of the App Store. Software developers will be able to directly reach customers on either of those devices, with programs less than 10MB even being available for download over-the-air through a mobile phone company. Software bigger than 10MB will be available through iTunes on a Mac or PC, or directly through a WiFi connection. Apple will handle the file hosting and transactions for developers, sharing 70 percent of the revenue with those designers. Software developers will chose the price for their programs, including being able to give applications away for free.

 Am I the only one who is reminded of Mario Bros. by the MobileMe icon? Apple announced MobileMe today. The new service will replace the .Mac service. Current .Mac subscribers will have their accounts automatically upgraded to MobileMe. Apple is calling it "Exchange for the rest of us." The service will set you back $99 annually and can be accessed at www.me.com.

How-To: Restore Your Hacked iPhone

 Disclaimer: Mac|Life can not be held responsible for any problems that may arise from the hacking and unhacking of your iPhone. Be sure to research any hacking and unhacking procedures thoroughly before proceeding.  With the iPhone App Store opening for business at any moment, many iPhone owners are looking at their jailbroken, unlocked or otherwise hacked phones and deciding a little time travel might be in order. After all, it’s quite unlikely programs acquired from the App Store will run on anything but Apple-approved, untouched hardware. With that in mind, let’s run through the various methods of “revirginizing” your iPhone.
