2 Refurbished iphones and an Apple Cup on Leopard skin

There is a very disgusting NSFV(Not suitable for viewing) video about 2 Girls and a cup that has been popularised by the youtube community. Certainly we are not going to post the link to that video here , however if you are intent on spoiling your day you may use search to find that video and related news. This picture on the other hand is an interesting combination of 2 refurbished iphones and an apple cup on the background of Leopard skin. There surely are better ways of using the cup!

Refurbished iphone - Now with removable battery *Not recommended*

Now you can replace your Refurbished iphone or new iPhone’s battery on your own. Though possible it appears to be a tough surgical procedure and if you are willing to perform this operation at your own risk the guys over at Gear Live have posted a video showing how you can replace your very own iPhone battery.

Apple will repair your iPhone for a service fee of $79, plus $6.95 shipping with the caveat that service may not be available if your iPhone has been damaged due to accident or abuse therefore when you open up the iPhone, there’s a chance of something going wrong, so you could end up paying a lot more than it would have cost you to just get the battery from Apple in the first place.

So the question is how long will the iphone batteries last? iphone owners hope the batteries last long enough that you won’t be doing this very often, but the phones are still pretty new, so we haven’t really found out yet.

The video shows that it is beyond the average user to perform this kind of surgery sucessfully therefore the refurbiphone blog does not recommend this as a try it at home kindof stuff!

iphone: Special Offer for Holidays atleast $200 off

Welcome back to the home of the refurbished iphone !!! As posted earlier we are trying to experiment a new concept(Patent Pending) in online auctions.
This is how it works. (However this is not an iphone refurbished but a brand new one).

1) We set a start price for the iphone (Say $100).
2) You bid a price higher than $100 say $110.
3) Others keep bidding higher for a 1 week listing.
4) After 1 week the auction ends and We look at all the bids.
5) Lets say 3 bidders bid $110 , $120 and $ 130.
6) Then bidder who bids $130 wins the auction. but the amount paid for iphone is average of all bids which is $120.So even though the bid was $130 the price paid is $120.
7) The only catch being that We consider only the highest bids of each of the bidders and the bidder must have bid more than once during the auction to be considered for winning.

Why are we doing this?

We are testing the effectivity of a business idea in the market and want to make sure that it is viable. This method can be very effective when there are huge promotional sales or holiday discounts going.

Here is a sample of products auctioned at , , ,ebidz and what price we project you will get here.Also shown is the in-store price at apple/at & t.

iphone cost @ my webstore : $ 359
Apple Store /AT & T new iphone : $ 399
iphone Cost Ebay/Amazon/yahoo : $ 399

We arrived at the $359 number because when we did an extensive test with the ipod We found that we had a consistent 10% discount on ebay or store prices. In some cases it could be much lower even upto 40% discount it all depends on the other bidders.

Ready to place bid? How to do it?
Our webstore is still being setup so in order to place your bid just reply to this post and state your quote. We are currently running auction for brand new unlocked iphone.
Product Brand New unlocked 8GB apple iphone
Our Bid open start bid price is $200.

To start bidding just reply to this post with your quote (Ex $201.50). You are guaranteed to get the lowest price ever on the Net.
Happy Holidays!!!

iphone to be opened up for developers in Feb 2008

Apple announced it will provide a development kit to let independent programmers create new applications for the device, a move that could eventually open the music player-phone to new games and link it to corporate e-mail systems.

"We are excited about creating a vibrant third-party developer community around the iPhone and enabling hundreds of new applications for our users," Jobs said. "We believe we have created the best mobile platform ever for developers."

But code writers will have to wait until February 2008 to get the software tools, Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs said in a statement posted on Apple's Web site.

Independent software writers are sure to write applications allowing the iPhone to sync with corporate e-mail systems.

iphone 1.1.2. released officially by Apple

Apple on Monday officially released iPhone 1.1.2.

The update is available through iTunes and will show up when the iPhone is connected. Apple only says the update includes “new features and bug fixes.”

There are a few noticeable changes, mostly for international users. With the new version you can change the language to French, German or Italian and change the keyboard layout to English (UK), French, German and Italian.

Other smaller changes are also included with iPhone Update 1.1.2. The phone’s battery charge now shows up in iTunes, next to your phone icon. Apple changed the sorting of ringtones, too — tones from Apple or applications like iToner now show up in a section labeled “Custom,” while ringtones that came with the phone are listed under “Standard.”

The widely reported TIFF exploit has also been fixed with this update. It fixes a critical security vulnerability with the way that the phone renders TIFF images, that flaw had been used by iPhone developers in the unauthorized Jailbreak software that is used to run third-party applications. The update makes it difficult for users of brand-new iPhones to install Jailbreak.

The iPhones’s unauthorized software developers have already found a way to stay ahead of Apple's latest software update.

Users with Jailbreak on their iPhone 1.1.1 systems are being advised to first install an application called OktoPrep, according to a post on the Unofficial Apple Weblog. This allows them to update to 1.1.2 without compromising their ability to run unauthorized software on the device.
