Publisher Comments:

The product approach for iPhone and iPod Touch is right out of the Apple playbook: control the software, control the hardware, and use the style and minimalist design that made iPod and iMac so appealing. But it's an open hardware world today, and we want more from these devices. iPhone Hacks gives you exactly that: new ways to get more out of an iPhone or iPod Touch in spite of Apple's close-to-the-vest constraints. With iPhone Hacks, you can make your iPhone or iPod Touch do everything and anything you'd expect of a mobile converged device. Learn all the tips and techniques to unleash little-known features, find (and create ) great web-based applications for it, and unshackle it to run everything from network utilities to video game emulators — all without impairing the toaster-like simplicity of this Apple appliance. This book offers you hacks to: Watch DVDs, sync with multiple computers, convert Videos to mobile-ready formats, view RSS feeds, and more Develop native apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch, use apps created by others, and get web-based apps to fit iPhone's screen Check email, use IRC, and attend conference calls and videoconferences Play Sudoku, Nintendo, Zork, Doom, and other games Control your desktop or laptop from your iPhone or iPod Touch Tether your computer's web browser to the wireless network Convert Mac OS X widgets to iPhone and iPod Touch applications, and upgrade from the default calculator to something useful Troubleshoot and restore your device, install third-party apps, and backup its files Connect to a Bluetooth headset, or listen to your music from car speakers Customize the ringtones, system sounds, icons, and more iPhone Hacks also explains how to setup your iPhone or iPod Touch the way you want it, optimize the speed of the Edge network, sync more than just music, and maximize your battery life. Many of the hacks are applicable to both Mac and PC users. This cunning little handbook is exactly what you need to coax the genie out of the bottle.

About the Author

David Jurick was tragically born a siamese twin. His twin happened to be a PC computer with a 1394a umbilical cord linking the two. Thus, he's been around computers for a considerable amount of time. He has extensive experience in such topics as networking, hardware, software, and HTML programming. He graduated high school in 2001, and then went on to pursue a degree at U.C. Santa Barbara. While in school he helped found the Kappa Sigma fraternity at U.C.S.B. In 2006 he graduated with a B.S. degree in pharmacology. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

Adam Stolarz is a writer, gadget-user, and gamer, who has been using and defending Apple products since his earliest technological memories. Before graduating high school in 2007, he worked in the field of in-car computers, dissecting and assembling carputers, and contributing to books about in-car hacking and internet video. As a tech-inclined Millennial, he has always kept a Mac laptop in his possession as the most stable, productive link in his computing chain, while keeping a PC as a lovable old crashable gaming machine. He is also an avid user of mobile information, maps, the web, communication, etc. He can't wait until his iPhone does every single thing his laptop can. He lives in Los Angeles, California.

Damien Stolarz is an inventor with a decade of experience making different kinds of computers talk to each other. After studying Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at UCLA, Damien co-founded Blue Falcon Networks (formerly Static Online, Inc.), where he supervised, architected and developed networking software for 7 years. He has written and spoken at conferences about Internet video, content delivery, and Peer-to-Peer networking, and created Robotarmy in 2002 to provide high-technology consulting in these areas.
