dropbox.com

Store 2 gigs of files for free on the internet that can be accessed from any computer or iphone. It's so easy to use and there are a ridiculous number of uses for dropbox.

I played Catan once in my life 2 yrs ago so I found the tutorial very helpful. My only complaint is that a game takes too long. I know that this is realistic but it took me forever to play my first game. I bought the app when it was first mentioned here and just finished the game yesterday.

I played 4 games today. :-D


Got addicted over the past week. Games to 12 take me about 15 mins. The AI is generally good and soon gang up on me but once in a while they build roads to nowhere. I generally win but do restart if I don't like the initial layout. Vincent is the only AI that can beat me.

I just now connected my bluetooth earpiece with my iphone and learned I can used the headset to issue voice commands to the phone while it's sitting on the speaker/radio dock back in the bedroom. I freakin love this stuff.

Has anybody jailbroken their iphone?
Can you tell me the pros and cons of this?
If it's just money I can skip it b/c apps are so cheap it would make no difference to me but is there any functional advantage to jailbreaking?

Yup. No cost. IIRC, you probably won't able to do it for a few weeks if you have installed the latest firmware (3.1.3), unless you have a less common version of the boot rom. They're talking about waiting to releasing the next jailbreak for all 3.1.3 models when a new version of the OS is released (3.2 or 4.0).

Pros - you'll be able to install some apps that provide features that Apple currently restricts for official apps (multitasking, UI customization, etc., etc.). From my perspective:
- multitasking (I absolutely love being able to flip between running apps)
EDIT: allow me to run Pandora and other music/radio apps other than iPod/browser while flipping to other apps.
- displaying the current temperature on the weather icon
- using the volume buttons for next/previous iPod tracks
- spell-check for everything with a red underline
- turn settings on/off based on a schedule to save battery life
- 5x5 icons instead of 4x4 (there's 6x6 as well, but that's too crowded, 5x5 is just right)
- quick access to toggles to control everything -- volume, brightness, wifi, 3g.
- ability to hide apps that are never used (recorder, etc.)
Try this for some other opinions: http://www.google.com/search?q=best+jailbreak+apps

Cons - Unrestricted apps are more likely to have bugs that can potentially cause more problems than bugs in Apple-approved apps. More like to encounter an app that causes weirdness with the springboard or other apps.

Just make sure you've synched/backed up your iPhone before you jailbreak, and if anything goes wrong a restore will make all well again.

BTW, if you run with your iPhone, here's a nice [official] app. Also handy while driving...

Here's another app that I use all the time because I can write a lot faster with my finger than I can type with my thumbs:

I would jailbreak the iphone just for the customization alone.

I don't have an iphone, but this is pretty sexy,
