iPhone Rumours

It is that time of the year again when the world keeps on speculating the future products from Apple to be announced at the WWDC.This year the “rumourators” have a special love for the iPhone like the previous year.The top rumours are :

1)32 GB version

2)Video Support

3)A 4 GB version (yes that too is there)

32 Gb rumours

These rumours have recently acquired almost verisimilitude due to the update of the Inventory System of UK based reseller Carphone Warehouse.

The four place holders refer to an iPhone labelled “v3″ but of interest is two place holders for “IPhone 32GbV3 Black” and “IPhone 32GbV3 White”.It is however mentioned that placeholders on inventory systems are not necessarily a sure sign of a future product, in many cases they are guesses by staff at the retailer. The placeholders however fit with rumours of a 32GB iPhone. (source Apple Insider)

The video version is another strong and almost certain release we are expecting to see.the rumour industry has further been fueled by the mysterious V3 versionsas shown in the image above.ANother fuel to the fire is the release of AT&T website picture that shows iPhone Video as a standard option.However it is notified that the change has not yet been found in the website.

Touch n Paint

Brushes is a natural media painting application designed from scratch for the iPhone and iPod touch. Featuring an advanced color picker, several realistic brushes, extreme zooming, and a simple yet deep interface, it is a powerful tool for creating original artwork on your mobile device.

Brushes allows you to choose any color (including transparency) using the hue/saturation color wheel. With virtually unlimited undo and redo you never need to worry about making a mistake or backing up too far.

Starting in version 1.1, Brushes records all of your actions when painting. These actions are stored in a .brushes file which you can download directly from your iPhone or iPod touch via Brushes’ built-in web server.

You can open your .brushes paintings in Brushes Viewer, a free application for Mac OS X. Brushes Viewer allows you to replay your paintings stroke for stroke, export them at very high resolutions (up to 1920 x 2880), and even export them as QuickTime movies.

OS 3.0: Re-Downloading Costs

pay twice

With the new iPhone 3.0 software Apple aims to save a bit of  bandwidth of Mobile Companies by charging users for Re- Downloading an App that they have paid for but may have deleted.It is to be noted that this Re Downloading Cost is applicable only in On the GO cases when you use your iPhone or iPod Touch to connect to the App Store.If you were to use your iTunes and your MAC for the same purpose you can easily redownload without paying a penny.

Though some people would end up paying twice for the App despite the warning message.However, the real motive behind this surprise hitch in otherwise sweet OS 3.0 is more aimed to reduce the Network Load than make the user suffer.What I cannot understand is why not restrict the usage to WiFi mode only than block it altogether?
