iPhone 4 is awesome with stunning hardware, looks making all other iPhones feel dumb and stupid! Apple cleverly left out ‘G’ from ‘iPhone 4G’ hinting at an impending iPhone 4G rollout expected in 2011. iOS name is licensed from Cisco to differentiate iPhone OS 4.0 from iPhone 4 I believe. There are some things we should be aware of before starting to obsess about the iGadget of the year!

It is evident that iPhone 4G is going to hit the scene this June. After Gizmodo’s leak and supposedly poor iPhone sales ever since, Apple decided to lower the price of the 3GS iPhone. It is available @ Walmart (Brick and Mortar stores only btw) starting 25th May, 2010. This may be the only chance to nab an iPhone 3GS with normal ETF of $175 (if you wish to cancel in the future).

Why a $100 price-cut on the most powerful iPhone ever?
Well, Gizmodo’s iPhone 4G leak supposedly weakened all iPhone …

Remembering passwords is always a pain! 1Password is a great password manager if you have a Mac. LastPass’ FREE service for your favorite browser on major operating systems  (Windows, Mac and Linux) is much better! LastPass for the iPhone is even more awesome just because your passwords used on desktop/laptop browsers are automatically made available on your iPhone in a quick and painless manner.

LastPass for the iPhone is a premium feature and it is currently at a $1 per month which is not much given the productivity that is bundled …

Apple’s iPhone had little or no updates to the UI ever since its inception (2007 June). The homescreen is way too boring when compared to the ever so popular Android phones. To add some life to the existing iPhone homescreen, install a free application called ‘Element’. It is a Cydget widget. You no longer have to launch each individual app (weather, email, sms, calendar,.. updates). Following are the steps to install it on your iPod Touch / iphone.

Your iPhone should be jailbroken before proceeding.
