It's here! It's finally here! Yes, the Verizon iPhone 4 arrived in our hands this morning in a lovely white FedEx box. We've yet to test it to see if it's got more bars in more places (actually, that's AT&T's motto, whoops), because we're too busy manhandling and enjoying the feel of a brand new iPhone 4. Except that, honestly, it's the exact same as the AT&T iPhone 4, except that its insides have that sexy dual-band CDMA/GSM chip. It's also got those sweet racing stripes that make it a bad candidate for your old iPhone 4 case. Anyway, enjoy the snap shots.
Whether your iPhone is on Verizon or AT&T, one thing is for certain -- it shoots amazing 720p HD video. Unfortunately, Apple has hindered our ability to share such video, but thankfully some enterprising third-party developers are quickly filling this gap. The latest is Thwapr, which promises to share up to 30 minutes of video with a free cloud-based service.
For many of us on the Mac|Life staff, Instagram is our go-to iOS app in the event that the good times start rolling in our presence. It seems that a lot of other folks feel the same as we do about the photo capturing-and-share platform, as close to 300,000 photos are uploaded to Instagram's servers every day. It could be that those already lofty numbers might swell in the days to come as Instagram is now offering their application's API to developers.
We cruised by Moscone this morning to see how the set up was going for Macworld Expo 2011. Since the event is being held in Moscone West this year instead of Moscone North or South, we couldn't sneak a peek down the stairs to see if exhibitors where setting up. We did get some pictures of the slightly exciting registration setup and of the banners being hung on the street. But really, the best thing we saw was the most awesome Apple-branded jacket ever.

We had a great time mingling with you--the readers!--at our meetup on January 20 in downtown San Francisco. There was plenty of beer, lots of smiles, a fun little Apple-related pub quiz and a ton of prizes to be given away, including Incipio iPhone 4 cases for everyone who showed up from our friends at Incipio. One of you even made cupcakes for the whole lot!
Thanks to everyone for showing up, and if you didn't make it this time around, don't fret! We're having another reader meetup in the near future. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for news of the next meetup.
Being able to take photos with your iPhone on the go is great. Getting them off of your iPhone? Not so much. For many of us, our busy lives preclude the ability to sync our iOS devices on a regular basis, leaving all of the images we take on the go unprotected by the benefit of a backup. As such, everyone using an iPhone is always at risk of losing their precious photographic memories. Unacceptable! Today, we'll show you how you can easily back every photo you take with your iPhone, thanks to an ingenious iOS application and our friends at Dropbox.
It's been a full 28 hours since we set foot inside of the Las Vegas Convention Center. There are plenty of gadgets that we've yet to lay eyes on, but for now here's a quick look at what we, and our brethern at Maximum PC, have seen so far at this year's show.
If you're interested in following along with our travels, be sure to download the official Maximum Tech CES app that includes our feed, too. And don't forget to follow us on Twitter.
Hey, hep cat! In case you haven’t heard, vintage is here in a big way -- as in vintage photography, groovy dudes, iPhone (or iPod touch) style. If you crave the ability to make your expensive iOS device take pictures like a classic Polaroid (or other vintage gear), read on.
