The one in beautiful helvetica, but without multi-calendar support? Those days are now behind us, with Calvetica 2.0 <a href="http://www.macworld.com/article/153954/2010/09/calvetica_iphone_calendar.html" target="_blank">bringing multi-calendar support and a whole host of other goodies</a>.

    Gameloft are at it again with their epic iPhone games. Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus screenshots are over at Slide to Play, but this ain't just another iPhone FPS. <a href="http://www.slidetoplay.com/story/modern-combat-2-black-pegasus-screenshots-released" target="_blank">It's the best iPhone FPS ever</a>.

    Have you ever heard of Bohemian Coding? No, it's not quite the same as rapid prototyping, but they do make <a href="http://www.bohemiancoding.com/sketch/overview/" target="_blank">a mighty fine vector drawing app</a>. It might not replace Illustrator just yet, but it's pretty damn slick.

    Take reports from Twitter with a grain of salt, but the developer of a Google Voice app for the iPhone says <a href="http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/09/10/google_voice_enabled_apps_coming_back_to_app_store .html" target="_blank">his app will most likely be approved if he re-submits</a> it to the App Store following the recent changes in the app store guidelines.

    Some people underestimate the power of the Terminal application. Some people just don't understand it. Understand this though with Terminal, you can <a href="http://www.cultofmac.com/change-hidden-mac-preferences-with-defaults-write-macrx/57972?utm_source=feedburner&amp;utm_medium=feed&am p;utm_campaign=Feed:+cultofmac/bFow+(Cult+of+Mac)&amp;utm_content=Google+Reader" target="_blank">change a whole lotta preferences, all with the one command</a>.

    When Steve Jobs said that he would ship a whole bunch of FaceTime compatible devices when he introduced the iPhone 4, he wasn't kidding. <a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/25645/facetime-coming-to-ichat-windows" target="_blank">Is FaceTime coming to iChat and Windows</a>?

    Once upon a time, there was a little iPhone Twitter called Tweetie. Tweetie 2.0 followed not too long after, and the legend goes that someone had the gall to name-squat Tweetie 3.0 but alas, it was not to be. <a href="http://www.9to5mac.com/25788/apple-fighting-app-name-squatting-developers" target="_blank">Apple's putting an end to App Store name squatting</a>.

    Ars give us the 411 on <a href="http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2010/09/hdr-photography-with-iphone-4-and-ios-41.ars" target="_blank">HDR photography with the iPhone 4 and iOS 4.1</a> while HDR can give impressive results, it's also a good idea to keep in mind that it can also produce unexpected results, too.

    You've no doubt seen the Element Vapor 4 case, with all of it's carbon-fiber and aluminium design. <a href="http://www.geardiary.com/2010/09/09/why-you-should-buy-the-apple-bumper-case-and-why-you-should-leave-the-element-vapor-4-case-in-its-box/" target="_blank">Gear Diary have compared it with the standard Apple bumper</a>, and they say you should just leave that Element Vapor in it's box.
