Are you on Flickr and use the Tweetie 2 iPhone app? Then you might want to know about Godzilla. It let’s you skip the image services like twitpic or yfrog when tweeting. When you send a tweet from Tweetie 2, Godzilla uploads the image to your Flickr account. Excellent.
Effektive designed these grid based home screen backgrounds for iPhone and iPad to coincide with the IOS4 software upgrade which allows you to select and image as a home screen background.

With numbered grid rows and a ‘D’ for Dock you simply press hold and drag and drop your icons into the specific grid spots.
Please note only works on devices running IOS4 and only on 3GS or iPhone 4. More colours and styles will be available soon. See here for download and installation instructions. iPad Grid-Apps will be available soon.
Back in June, I cracked my iPhone screen and all this time I just couldn’t get myself to pay $200 for a new glass. (Sorry, Apple)
A lovely lady at an AT&T store pointed me to Dr.Brendan, the iPhone Doc here in Manhattan. Last week, I finally managed to meet up with Brendan and watched him do surgery on my beloved iPhone. (We met up in a Hotel Lobby in the Meat Packing district, it felt like some sort of drug deal, ha!)
Brendan is a charming young guy, who kinda fell into this and is now making a living off fixing iPhones. My phone looks like new, works like a charm and it cost me a mere $70. Brendan does house-calls and meets you pretty much anywhere in the city. Does it get any more convenient? Nope.
I can’t recommend Brendan enough. I was disappointed though that he didn’t wear scrubs during the surgery. Ha!
How cool is this portable iPhone Solar Charger by Dexim? It can be flipped vertically or horizontally for hands-free viewing and can extend talk time up to eight hours. Solar P-Flip is expected to be released in a few months and should retail for USD79.90.
During an interesting Sandbox Dinner last night, David from Holstee mentioned this Augmented ID, a TAT concept that visualizes the digital identities of people you meet in real life. With a mobile device and face recognition software from Polar Rose, Augmented ID enables you to discover selected information about people around you. All users control their own augmented appearance, by selecting the content and social network links they want show to others. Modifying your augmented ID is easier than fixing your hair in real life and, of course, TAT Cascades will make sure you look great!
