iPhone SDK 8 Ready For Download

  Apple emailed notice to developers that iPhone SDK beta 8 (build 9M2199a) is ready to download and that they are now accepting iTunes App Store submissions. Apple states: Beta release 8 is compatible with the final iPhone OS 2.0 release and must be used to build and sign any iPhone OS application to be submitted to the App Store. As a reminder, you must be a member of the iPhone Developer Program to submit apps. The final firmware release of iPhone 2.0 is rumored to launch Friday, June 27 and expected to hit OG iPhones before the launch of the iPhone 3G.

Rumor: App Store to Launch June 27

 TUAW, posted this screenshot from the Australian iPod touch page that shows the App Store launching June 27. That's a bit earlier then the "early July" official statement from Apple. We searched the site looking for this image and tried looking at cached versions of the site from yesterday with no luck. So either the image was only up for a few moments today and then quickly pulled and someone is now searching for a new job, or it's a mockup created by the TUAW tipster. We sent a query to TUAW about the image and will update when we find out who took the image in question. Regardless, if this is true, yippppeeee!

Yet we still love screensavers. Why? Some of them do useful things. Others are pure eye-candy. Your friends couldn't care less about seeing TPS reports on your new Cinema Display, but fire up one of these cool screensavers and watch as everyone becomes mesmerized.

 Macs are expensive. Let’s just go ahead and admit that right away. Yes, they’re the best computers on the market, and each new Mac includes useful software like Mail, Safari, TextEdit, and the iLife suite for no extra charge. But many consider certain high-priced software packages—specifically, Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop, although the list doesn’t end there—to be so standard that they’re practically required purchases. Indeed, when people ask us about switching from a PC to the Mac, one of the first questions usually is, “I’ll have to rebuy Office, won’t I?” Not necessarily.

But in the meantime, there might be a couple Web-based gems that you might have missed.
