Mix: iPhone 2.2, Norway DRM, iPhone robot, Remember The Milk
According to new screenshots (Translated Link) of iPhone Software 2.2, Apple has activated new features of the iTunes Store to allow users to download podcasts directly to their device. Podcasts appear in the normal Downloads area, and according to a report (Translated Link) from m4gic.net, podcasts 10 MB or less in size can be downloaded over cellular data networks, while larger files require Wi-Fi. In addition, the screenshots show that the App Store’s Categories listing will gain icons to the left of the category name. [via Mac Rumors]
Apple’s response to Norwegian Consumer Ombudsman Bjorn Erik Thon’s plan to bring an iTunes case before the country’s Market Council has failed to satisfy regulators, according to a new report. Thon, who has claimed for some time that Apple’s iTunes DRM scheme and contract terms breach the Norwegian Marketing Control Act, said in September, “It’s a consumer’s right to transfer and play digital content bought and downloaded from the Internet to the music device he himself chooses to use. iTunes makes this impossible or at least difficult, and hence, they act in breach of Norwegian law.” After seeing Apple’s response, Thom stated, “We have received an answer from iTunes, but it was an answer that didn’t add anything of substance. We will now continue what we have done so far, prepare to bring the case before the Market Council.”
An ambitious iPhone 3G user has posted videos of two hacks he has made to the device, including the addition of a physical keyboard and a robot-like platform. The iPhone 3G used for the modifications has been jailbroken and uses Ruby code to interface with the mods. With the ability to move on its own, the iPhone/robot hack is controlled from the modder’s computer over Wi-Fi, and is able to record its view for later playback. [via Engadget]
