Hey guys, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you would have know that since Wikileaks released confidential diplomatic cables, many companies have given them the cold shoulder.
However, this morning, Apple pulled the “Unofficial Wikileaks” application from the App Store. Now, they didn’t give a reason, but if it were up to me, I would say that it was because they were selling content that is free to the web (and this content is highly seen as a big “no no” by the US Government). The app was selling for $1.99 but the developer claims to have been donating $1.00 of it to Wikileaks, factor in Apple’s 30% cut, and you’re left with about $0.40 for the developer.
Not too bad (if they were doing as they said). Apple has not yet commented on the pulling of the application, but we’ll have more info as we get it.
Basically the paid app was selling WikiLeaks content (available for free) for $1.99. Its entry into the app store on December 17th was actually surprising, as Apple is usually quite strict and somewhat vague about its app approval standards. WikiLeaks and founder Julian Assange are quite controversial, to put it lightly but I’m not sure if the app directly violated anything in Apple’s TOS.
In the past couple of weeks corporate biggies Amazon, PayPal, Mastercard, Visa and Bank of America have all tried to disassociate themselves in one way or another from WikiLeaks. If this isn’t some kind of glitch, Apple has plenty company.read more
According to a leaked internal memo, Sam’s Club has just made a new offer for last minute iPhone customers. It looks like they have majorly discounted the iPhone 4 & iPhone 3G [S]. The iPhone 4 will now be $145 (with 2-year contract) or an iPhone 3G [S] for $45.
This is an in-store deal only, so if you are like me and have a Sam’s Club membership and want a new iPhone, go ahead and head over to your local Sam’s Club because this deal only lasts until Christmas!read more
Hey guys, late last night, Apple released a new tool for people who develop for iOS and even Ad agencies, they call it “iAd Producer”.
The app does exactly what the name implies, you use it to create your own iAds so you can get your name out there on iOS devices with an interactive ad. I used the tool and found it quite handy to use and simple to use.
iAd Producer also lets you test the ads on an iOS device! This app will only push the ad to a device running iOS 4.0 or higher (sorry original iOS device users!).
You can download it at developer.apple.com if you are a paid Apple iOS developer!
Here’s what Apple had to say:
This is their “back up” jailbreak. MuscleNerd was quick to comment and said that the jailbreak WILL NOT require a restore. All it will require is a run of redsn0w.
This is great news for people that don’t want to restore their iOS devices. I’ve learned to deal with restores. I used to be the same, but not anymore. If a restore is necessary, then I’ll just do it and just start a fresh sync.

Good afternoon everyone. I am very happy that you guys could join us today as we unveil the next generation of our most popular application. Yes folks, that’s right, I’m referring to LEI Mobile.
Now, the LEI Mobile app has been nothing but a success. We have shipped over 150,000 copies of the application across iOS devices and Mac OS X. We have been using the iTunes App Store and Cydia as our distribution channels, with BigBoss as our exclusive carrier on Cydia. We couldn’t be happier with the performance of LEI Mobile in the iOS software market.
We have garnered over 36% market share in the Site-Specific market on Cydia since our launch just one year ago. We have swiftly overtaken the market and we are very excited to be in that #1 spot with our closest competitor at about 12% market share. P1nkSn0w and SocialMe have also been performing very well, grabbing over 50,000 downloads since January (SocialMe) and July (P1nkSn0w). We couldn’t be happier.
