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.

iPhone worm: the world has gone bonkers

http://www.itwire.com

Sophos' Graham Cluley is amazed at the reception given to the iPhone worm creator. Others have offered a mix of jobs and death threats.
In a recent on-line survey, Sophos (the anti-virus people) asked for readers' opinions on the merits of Ashley Towns, the author of the iPhone worm (or virus, if you prefer).

The poll asked, succinctly enough: "What do you think about the iPhone worm's author?"

The (completely unscientific) results, based on 721 votes, were intriguing:

He's done iPhone users a favour. This was an acceptable way to raise awareness of poor security. 547 votes.

He's acted recklessly by releasing the worm, the ends didn't justify the means. 69 votes.

I hope he's investigated by the cops - when he released that worm he broke the law. 105 votes.

What this is saying is that around 75% of visitors to a well-known anti-virus site (people who ought to know better) are essentially supporting Towns' actions.

Graham Cluley, writing in his blog comments, "Has the world gone completely bonkers? It's a depressing notion that most people think that doing harm and breaking computer crime laws is a good thing.
