Times Square Video Screens Allegedly Hacked With iPhone

YouTube user BITcrash44 recently posted a video in which he allegedly plasters his image all over Times Square's TV screens, using only his iPhone and a transmitter.

Apple's Phil Schiller: White iPhone 4 Will Drop This Spring

Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide product marketing, tweeted yesterday that the white iPhone 4 will finally be available this spring. Schiller didn't reveal any specific details about the mythical phone, like whether it'll be available on both Verizon and AT&T, or its exact release date. But with summer a likely target launch date for the iPhone 5, we'd bet on seeing...

All Smartphones Are Vulnerable to 'Death Grip,' Study Says

It looks like the iPhone 4 isn't the only smartphone that's susceptible to the so-called 'death grip.' A recent study from the University of Bristol found that placing your thumb over any smartphone's antenna can reduce the device's sensitivity by up to 100 fold. The researchers also found that placing a buffer between your thumb and the antenna doesn't mitigate this signal-reducing effect. It sho...

Apple Working on Smaller, Cheaper iPhones, Sources Tell WSJ

Verizon Customers Finally Get Their Hands on Apple's iPhone

The Daily Show Gets a Little (Over) Excited for Verizon iPhone

Many people have been thrilled by the announcement that the iPhone 4 is coming to Verizon, but perhaps no one is more excited than Jon Stewart, who took more than seven minutes on last night's episode of 'The Daily Show' to celebrate the revolutionary ability to make phone calls that don't suddenly drop. Referring to the iPhone on AT&T as "the world's most popular almost phone" Stewart and cr...

'Oldboy' Director Shoots New Fantasy-Horror Film With iPhone 4

Given his stellar filmography, it's safe to assume that Park Chan-wook's next movie will be just as viscerally powerful as 'Oldboy,' 'Sympathy for Lady Vengeance,' or 'Thirst.' Unlike the Korean director's previous works, though, his most recent project was shot with a distinctly unique cinematic medium: the iPhone. Titled 'Paranmanjang,' Park's new, 30-minute horror film was shot on a budget o...

Secret Code Defeats iPhone Lock Screen

A MacRumors forum member found a neat and slightly worrisome bug in Apple's iOS. A simple combination of buttons, along with a good sense of timing, can completely bypass the iPhone's passcode lock screen. To recreate it, simply tap the "emergency call" button in the bottom left-hand corner of the lock screen. Then, enter a non-emergency number. The forum member used "###," but we also had succes...

Grab Your $8 Million Bejeweled iPhone 4 While You Can

What makes an iPhone 4 worth $8 million? Ask Stuart Hughes, the British designer behind this diamond-encrusted remake of the popular Apple smartphone.

At an investor conference yesterday, Verizon CEO Ivan Seidenberg said that over the next four to six months his company...
