I was at a bar the other night having a beer with friends, during which we talked about things guys talk about at bars. Would you rather have the power to see the future or to read someone’s mind? Who’s better, Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant? And, lastly, if you couldn’t use an iPhone, which phone would you use?
The four of us sat there confused trying to answer the last question, and actually never got around to answering it.
The reason we never finished our answers was that it became more a question about how ingrained and integral the iPhone is in our lives than a feature-for-feature comparison of the iPhone against its competitors.

iMovie for iPhone 4 arrived on the App Store tonight, just hours before the official 7:00am launch of the iPhone 4. As promised during the WWDC keynote, the iMovie app brings the ability to edit and share videos directly to the iPhone. From transitions to titles, to adding background music to your clips, iMovie promises to offer powerful editing features that you don’t typically find on a mobile device.

A third support document posted this evening further confirms this to be the case.

Just like the PwnageTool for Mac, Sn0wbreeze 1.6 can jailbreak iPhone 3GS (old bootrom, and already pwned on 3.1.2 with anything other than Spirit), iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G (non MC model).
So if you have a Windows machine, you can use Sn0wbreeze 1.6 to create custom firmware files without the upgraded baseband. Again, just like the PwnageTool 4.0 / 4.01, only the following devices are supported.
- iPhone 3G/3GS (old bootrom/already jailbroken with anything other than Spirit)
- iPod Touch 2G (non MC model)
Instructions are as follows.
