iPhone to feature special YouTube player

Apple's made it official: the iPhone will have full-blown YouTube integration. According to the iPhone Web site, the much-anticipated handset will include "a special YouTube player that you can launch right from the home screen." iPhone owners can now load and browse videos from the video-sharing site as well as e-mail them to their friends.

This comes less than a month after Steve Jobs announced that the company's Apple TV set-top box would also have built-in integration for the wildly popular YouTube.

The iPhone, as we all know by now, hits stores at 6 PM ET on June 29. That's next Friday!

iPhone's calculator !!!

iPhone users, have you noticed how cool and simple is the built-in calculator? It seems Apple has borrowed an idea from the old 1970’s Braun ET44 calculator. I wouldn’t call it a steal, as I’m not quite sure these sort of things are possible to protect with a patent. Apple simply used the best practices for its device and the result is a simple calculator with familiar look and feel. Nicely done!

iPhone Car Kit

When looking for an iPhone Car Kit, there are a few options to consider before purchasing. There are a variety of iPhone car kits in a range of prices, each offering different features. If you currently use an iPod Car Kit, you are probably in luck. The iPhone uses the same data port connection as the iPod, so your existing car kit should work with the iPhone. Here are a few options when it comes to iPhone Car Kits.

iPhone Car Accessory Options

- iPhone Cigarette Lighter Mount:
This iPhone car kit allows you to mount the Apple iPhone using the cigarette lighter. The mount does not charge the iPhone, but instead uses a rigid, yet flexible mount that gets inserted into the cigarette lighter in your car.

- iPhone Car Mount: Using a heavy-duty suction cup, this type of mount attaches to your windshield. Some models offer charging capabilities.

- Integrated Bluetooth iPhone Car Kit: Probably the most expensive, but the most feature rich iPhone car kit. Parrot is one of the major brands that offers this type of kit and it requires professional installation. This will allow you to handle calls without ever touching your iPhone. The iPhone is equipped with Bluetooth version 2.0 and should work with existing Parrot or other integrated Bluetooth car kits. The iPhone can reside anywhere in your car or jacket pocket and allow you to use the car kit. This also requires an iPhone car charger.

- iPhone Bluetooth Speakerphone: Probably the easiest way to add a speakerphone without complicated wiring is a dedicated Bluetooth speakerphone. Once paired with the iPhone, you can use the Bluetooth speakerphone to answer calls. There are a variety of models that allow you to mount on your visor or in a cup holder.

Louis Vuitton releases first luxury iPhone cases

This wasn’t on the iPhone Bingo card, but it should have been. Where there’s an extremely coveted gadget, there’ll be an extremely expensive luxury case for it. Louis Vuitton has announced a set of four iPhone cases: Monogram Canvas, Taiga Leather, Epi Leather and Alligator Skin. The Taiga Leather one has a belt attachment on it, but all of the cases are pretty inconvenient, because you’ve got to pull the iPhone all the way out to actually use it.
Oh, and we’ve saved the best for last. Want to guess prices? The Monogram Canvas case will only set you back a measly $225, while the Alligator Skin case is twice the price of the actual iPhone: $1120. All the cases will be available tomorrow at Louis Vuitton’s Fifth Avenue store in Manhattan.

Apple is still considering to allow third-party software to run on the iPhone

One additional tidbit from Apple’s shareholder meeting notes was a revealing blurb that Apple still hadn’t completely decided whether or not they will open the iPhone software to 3rd party developers.
Jobs did acknowledge that the company is still struggling to decide if third-party developers will be able to create software that will run on the iPhone. It’s a decision Apple “is wrestling with,” according to Jobs.
Apple’s choice to limit iPhone development has been the target of a lot of criticism against the iPhone. In the days after the iPhone announcement, Jobs stated that while you will be able to purchase and install additional applications on the iPhone, that this would be limited and in a “controlled environment”. As a result, the iPhone has been described as a “closed device” which could make enterprise market penetration difficult.

iPhone Will Support Third Party Software and Application

Just in case you missed Walt Mossberg’s sitdown with Steve Jobs earlier today, but in the open Q&A his Jobsness was asked point blank about the openness of the iPhone, and whether users can expect their $600 cellphone to be able to add on third party iPhone software and apps. His reply?“This is an important tradeoff between security and openness. We want both. … we’ll find a way to let 3rd parties write apps and still preserve security on the iPhone. But until we find that way we can’t compromise the security of the phone. … I’ve used 3rd party apps… the more you add, the more your phone crashes. No one’s perfect, and we’d sure like our phone not to crash once a day. If you can just be a little more patient with us I think everyone can get what they want.”You heard it folks, Apple’s working on allowing third party devs into the hallowed ground of the iPhone. One big issue (kind of) down, now we’ve just got to work on getting that thing a real keyboard and some 3G.

iPhone Can’t Support Adobe Flash But Can Play Youtube Videos

Coming out of WWDC are reports that Apple has officially admitted that the Apple iPhone will not support Adobe’s Flash plug-in in Safari.

Flash support has been a long unanswered question about the Apple iPhone. Steve Jobs had made comments early on that we might see Flash in iPhone according to David Pogue

Markoff: “Flash [in the iPhone]?”Jobs: “Well, you might see that.”Of note, Jobs did say that Youtube support would be in the iPhone… but by sidestepping Flash altogether:
Jobs: “Yeah, YouTube—of course. But you don’t need to have Flash to show YouTube. All you need to do is deal with YouTube. And plus, we could get ‘em to up their video resolution at the same time, by using h.264 instead of the old codec.”
This portion of Jobs’ plan came true with the Youtube addon for Apple TV which will require Youtube to convert their catalog of videos into the h.264 format.
