Steve Jobs has announced that the iPhone 4 will be released in Australia and 16 other countries on the 30th of July 2010. Apple made the announcement during a small press conference they called after the several weeks of bad publicity about the antenna problems.
Virgin have now put up a iPhone 4 register of interest form on their site. They now are the 4th carrier in Australia to confirm that they will be selling the new phone. View the “coming soon” page here: https://www.virginmobile.com.au/iphone/?i_cid=100506333.
Today I sold my iPhone 3G on Ebay. Before I went to send it off I wanted to erase all my settings and content. I used the feature called “reset all content and settings” which is found in the settings. It notified me that it may take up to two hours to do this so I left if for awhile. After 4 hours of constant restarting I started to think something wasn’t right.
After searching for a problem I came across a way to fix this problem and restore the iPhone. The following fix is thanks to Vitaliy Isikov.
1. Plug your phone into your computer and have iTunes running.
2. Hold down both the home and power buttons until the phone reboots and the screen is completely blank.
3. Let go of the power button and keep holding the home button until you see iTunes has recognized your phone in restore mode.
4. Restore your iPhone
Let me know if it worked for you in the comments!
Apple has announced the 4th generation iPhone today. It sports a front facing camera for video calling, an upgraded 5 megapixel camera for high quality photos and HD video. The phone features the new iOS 4 operating system which has the following new features: Multitasking, Folders, iBooks, 5x digital zoom, customisable wallpaper, spell checking and wireless keyboard support.
During Steve Job’s presentation the quality of the build of the phone was emphasized, with Apple using special glass and plastics. They also packed the insides tight so they could fit a larger battery and increase battery life.

Was poking about my site via FTP today and found a file named “MM_CASETEST4291”. I was like, woah there, I didn’t put that there. My mind went through flashes of my site being hacked, site being using as a case test to some professor somewhere showing to his class how easy it is to gain access to a site but no. After reading some pages online. It’s just a file that Dreamweaver uses to test the connection (rewrite permissions etc).
This is also an example of code that has remained from the merger of Adobe and Macromedia (the MM in “MM_CASETEST4291”). Interesting that they haven’t gone through the code and removed all references to it. For those that didn’t know Adobe acquired Macromedia in 2005, their main competitor in the design software race.
