    A press release has been emailed around by Apple to various concerned people (i.e: everyone except me, cheers Apple), stating that the iPhone will be out on the 30th of July (duh) and that "iPhone 4 will be available for outright purchase for a recommended retail price starting from AUD$859 inc GST through Apple’s online store (www.apple.com/au/store), Apple's retail stores and select Apple Authorised Resellers ...

    Vodafone have tweeted that they will be announcing plan details on Wednesday.

    That is all.

    The iLuv App Station is a really nice unit. It can be run on six AA batteries or mains power. Aesthetically it's pretty minimal, just a speaker grille that your iPhone sits in the middle of. Go into any department store and you'll find heaps of similar products, but most are horrifically ugly. The iLuv App Station stands out with it's relative simplicity. ...

Starting off with <a href="http://www.boinx.com/seethis/" target="_blank">a new piece of kit from Boinx software</a>, You Gotta See This! is an app that uses the iPhone 4's gyroscope to great effect - the only downside?

Sadly the event that Plug the Pipe was based around has now come and gone, but if you're wanting to re-live the pollution one more time, then by all means, buy this game, but be warned - it's atrociously bad.

    Speaking of iPhone games, Godville is an apparently excellent game with absolutely no gameplay. Perhaps they could have marketed this game towards the ultimate lazy gamer, but this is a game where you don't actually do anything. Intrigued?<a href="http://toucharcade.com/2010/07/22/godville-review-the-best-game-ive-ever-played-with-absolutely-no-gameplay/" target="_blank">Check out Touch Arcade's review</a>.

    Apple's still having trouble building white iPhones. So much so that they've delayed the white iPhone 4 until "later this year" citing a manufacturing issue. Unlike previous models, both the front and back of the device is covered in white for iPhone 4, and it's believed that the delays are due to a colorisation issue (White iPhone 4 Delayed Again To “Later This Year” - MacStories).

    Antennagate is out of the media and now only exists in the form of 'Don't they have an antenna problem?' questions, but John Gruber wanted to have the final word with a 'bottom line' piece. It details the problem and Apple's series of responses, and says Steve Jobs' peevishness when announcing free bumpers at the press conference is because Apple wanted extra cash from cases, as they did earlier this year with the iPad (Antennagate Bottom LineAntennagate Addendum - Daring Fireball).

    Even so, Apple has a clever way of dealing with the iPhone 4 Case Program, issuing refunds to millions of iPhone owners and free cases to millions more. To apply for a case, users need to download a free app which checks the serial number and IMEI to prove ownership (iPhone 4 Case Program - iTunes Store).

    Okay, this is pretty minor, but, Apple has updated their Australian retail website to say that all their stores will be open at 8AM for the iPhone 4. They also state that "iPhone 4 is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Limit two per person." This means there won't be pre-orders available for store ...

    Disk Image iconMost Mac users have come across disk images at one time or another - its how many developers distribute their applications. But did you know that there is more that can be done with these convenient little bundles of goodness? Using disk images to store your important files is a great way to encrypt your data without having to install any third party software.

    At its most basic, a disk image is a single file that contains a complete filesystem, including files, directory structure, and even settings for how it appears in the Finder. Once "mounted", the disk image volume behaves just like hard disks and DVDs within the Finder. Disk images can be read only, encrypted, sparse, multi-partition, or even bootable. ...
