iPhone 3G/3G-S Tethering

AT&T, Apple, Internet, Networks, Technology, WiFi

For those of you that happen to have an iPhone 3G or are getting an iPhone 3G-S this is a must read. (please note, links are provided for those that have no idea what I am referencing so they can find out)

As you all know Apple has recently upgraded the iPhone OS to 3.0, on the laundry list of features is Internet Tethering. AT&T claims not to support it but in fact it works like a charm showing up as standard iPhone Data usage. Now you may be thinking, I have a BlackBerry, I can tether with it if i pay $30/month, why is the iPhone so cool? Simple. Over the 3G connection on the iPhone 3G/3G-S you can be in a call with the handset or using a Bluetooth headset, you can be texting and using the internet on that nice MacBook. But not only can you do all that at the same time. You can take that shiny new MacBook, ans share the connection out to the Wireless and Ethernet adaptors (yes, both at the same time). Meaning you can connect 2 clients via the WiFi interface and 1 or more (would need a hub or switch) clients via the Ethernet interface. This means you can provide an internet connection to a decent sized group of people anywhere you go.

A Quick Look at Streaming on the iPhone

AT&T, Apple, Internet, Technology


When most people think of streaming music on the iPhone, apps like Pandora and Last.fm come to mind, however with the release of 3.0 on the horizon, another method has arisen.

What I’m talking about is the rework of CORE Audio in 3.0. This nifty little upgrade allows for such things as the interface to the bluetooth stack for stereo audio over Bluetooth. Another nifty little bit of this is that you can now enter the URL of an MP3 or AAC stream into the address bar in safari and have the CORE audio process play this stream.

A Quick Thought About iTunes and Public Schools

Apple

I received a call over the weekend from my sister who, being 6 years and change younger than me and still in the public school system, was given an assignment by a teacher to read a book and do a report about it.

Sounds easy right? Well the book the teacher assigned for the class to do the project on is long since out of print. Not only was it out of print, but her school’s library had no record of it, nor did the public library.

A Bright Side to the Death Star

AT&T, Apple, Technology


As some of you well know, we here at All That’s Evil like to point out the blatantly stupid things in the world, you probably also know that we aren’t huge fans of AT&T or Death Star communications as we like to call them

However, (come on, you knew it was coming) AT&T has recently impressed me. No, not the grab bag of people they have at the call centers that are supposed to provide support, they still genuinely suck as a whole. No, I am referring to the unbelievable quality of their network.

A Quick Look at a Jailbroken iPhone 3G

AT&T, Apple, Best Of, Hacking, Music, Software, WiFi

 

The iPhone 3G

The iPhone 3G

Ok, I’ll admit it. I like Apple products. There is something to be said for a product that you can pull out of the box and have it work right with out having to read pages of manuals or spend hours trying to figure out.

When Apple first released the original version of the iPhone I thought it was a neat concept, but the iPhone 3G is a serious expansion of an already cool product.

The iPhone 3G comes out of the box with Bluetooth, WiFi, Edge, 3G and GPS transceivers, making it an extremely connected device.

The Joys of Unix

Apple, Hacking, Linux, Microsoft

I will start off by saying, I was once a beta tester for Microsoft with a project known as Longhorn (Vista is what its now known by). I will also start off by saying that had it stayed the way it was and not undergone the swift lobotomy that Microsoft imposed on it, it would have been a truly revolutionary operating system.

That being said I am not a Windows user.

I am happy to proclaim that I am a Mac OS and Linux user. My main machine is a happy little Macbook running OS X Leopard, it is a fantastic little machine and is quite capable of do anything I need it to do, be it video editing or building the latest add-on for All That’s Evil or any of the many other sites I work on.
