NOKIA N900 MAEMO 5 Bakes in SKYPE

http://www.tmcnet.com

The new Maemo 5 software in the Nokia N900 has some surprises, including Skype baked into the operating system. Sweet! This will allow you to make free calls using the uber-gadgety Nokia (News - Alert) N900.

What else is new? Well Maemo 5 will update over-the-air (OTA), so no more connecting to a PC just to do a software update. It also sports a 5MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics for a high-quality camera that iPhone (News - Alert) users could only dream about. You can also zoo, crop, remove red eye and more on the Nokia N900.

The Nokia N900 is Linux-based and so it feature a full-fledged browser that is more powerful than your typical mobile browser. For instance, it can play YouTube and other Flash videos in the webpage without having to launch a separate player like the iPhone has to do.

Within the Skype (News - Alert) application you'll notice that your Skype contacts appear with their online status in the Nokia N900 address book. You can call, or IM over 3G and WiFi. Previous calls and instant messages on Skype appear in your conversation history. Smilies and other emoticons are supported in IM.

NOKIA N900 REVIEW (First Impressions)

http://noknok.tv

Is there anyone out there who hasn’t heard about the Nokia N900? It would seem hard to think so, as this is one of the most discussed, dissected and overall, desired handset out there at the moment. We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on one ahead of them hitting the streets. See how we got on with the Nokia N900 with our first impressions review of this tablet…

On first glance it would be hard to see why the Nokia N900 has truly caught the imagination of most people. After all, it’s a rather chunky device and the 3.5-inch touchscreen and slide-out QWERTY combo has been done before.

In a lot of respects, the Nokia N900 has a far more industrial feel to it than the Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 Mini, for instance. The keyboard slides out in a rather traditional way, rather than sitting on a spring loaded hinge.

However, fire up the Nokia N900 and start using the Maemo 5 operating system and any feelings about this handset being a little chunky, the screen not quite as advanced as we’d hoped melt away.

Google Updates Google Earth App for iPhone

http://www.pcworld.com

Google today announced version 2.0 of Google Earth for the iPhone and iPod touch, just over a year after releasing the first edition of the application, a piece of software which quickly turned into the second most popular download in Apple's App Store. But the past year has also been a stormy one for both Google and Apple, as their respective wireless partners, Verizon Wireless and AT&T, start to duke things out in court.

Google Earth 2.0

First launched in October of last year, the first edition of Google Earth finds out your location either through GPS or by using Google's search function to narrow down your location. You can then use the iPhone's multi-touch gestures for an interactive experience, rotating the phone to switch to a horizon view or making two-fingered circles to spin the landscape around, for instance.

25 Really Useful iPhone Apps for Web Designers

http://www.thewebdesignblog.co.uk

The world went crazy for the iPhone, thousands of us have bought one and hundreds of talented developers have created applications that we can all download on it. Luckily, quite a few are very useful for web designers!

We’ve been testing several of these apps and below are 25 of the very best that we think web designers will find very useful:
1. MiniBooks for FreshBooks
If you’ve got a FreshBooks account then this simply is a must-buy app. You can view all your invoices, create and send new invoices, change the status of the invoice, view and edit clients, create and send estimates and track time. It really is like having FreshBooks in your pocket!

2. Jobs
Jobs by Bjango is a simple time tracking app which is ideal for freelancers. It supports multiple currencies, lets you assign clients from you phone’s address book, change the hourly rate for each client and export your completed timers by e-mail. It also keeps running when you close the app which is a really handy feature.

iPhone Worm 'Rickrolls' Jailbroken iPhones

http://www.pcmag.com

F-Secure and many others are reporting on the arrival of the first iPhone worm, spreading in the wild.

The worm, named "ikee" after its author, affects only "jailbroken" iPhines which have been modified to remove restrictions on what software can run on the device. Jailbreaking typically opens up access to certain processes including SSH, with a default root password ('Alpine' on the iPhone).

The worm changes your iPhone's wallpaper to a picture of Rick Astley ("Never Gonna Give You Up") and a message that "ikee is never gonna give you up".

To protect your jailbroken iPhone against infection change the root password. F-Secure has provided instructions here.

ikee appears to be following the lead of the hacker who recently started hacking jailbroken iPhones, locking them up and demanding payment for an unlock code.

World’s Second iPhone Worm Called iPhone/Privacy.A Steals Private Date From Jailbroken Handsets

http://www.softsailor.com

Remember Ikee’s first iPhone worm in the world which targeted jailbroken devices in Australia of users who didn’t change the default root password? Codenamed Ikex, the worm changed your default wallpaper with a Rick Astley picture and got you rickrolled, and besides that it didn’t pose a threat. Well, it was just a matter of time until the worm was handed to another hacker who turned it into “evil malware.” Although Ikee said that the worm was released only to get the attention of users who didn’t change their “alpine” default root password, it seems like another hacker has other plans.

The new worm is dubbed as “iPhone / Privacy.A” and it acts “in secret.” The Privacy.A iPhone worm is capable of retrieving emails, SMS, contacts, multimedia files, calendar appointments, or basically all the date your apps can record, to an untraced source. At the moment security experts do not know everything about the worm, but still they’ve rated the worm as low-risk. I wouldn’t be so sure about that, and I think Apple should make the iPhone more secure because the Cupertino-based company owes that to millions of users around the world.
