I was looking for a new cradle and FM transmitter  for my iPhone to use in my Audi A6. I already have a belkin tunebase for my wife’s PT Cruiser which works great in her car. For some reason when I tried in my car it did not work so well, I had a hard time getting good clear sound no matter what station I tuned it to. So I started looking for a different brand for my car and came a cross a deal I could not pass up. It was a Griffin Roadtrip model 4040-RDTRPB for 14.99 on Amazon.com. Ordered it on thursday had it by tues and only paid 4.99 for shipping.

How would you like to be able  to tether your Iphone 3g with out jail-breaking it. Apple has made this possible with the new Iphone 3.0 os. While at&t has not allowed apple to activate tethering yet it is still in the os here is what you need to do.

iPhone 3.0 is live! so we are going to repost our tethering tutorial with some big improvements.  You now don’t have to do any downgrading or torrenting.    Seems you can just run a little command in terminal (Make sure you are on OS 3.0 on a 3G iPhone and iTunes 8.2):

defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE

After that, the steps become a lot more simple.

1. Download this file (for AT&T) and mount the disk image (thanks Gizmodo) for other carriers, try here.

2. Option-click on “restore” in your iTunes with your iPhone attached.  Browse to the opened disk image file and hit OK.  It will update phone settings for a few seconds.

3. You have tethering.  Now go into your iPhone/settings/general/network/Internet Tethering and turn it on.

Boom – 3 steps to tethering…

This works perfect on my Iphone 3G.

Best skins ever review for iPhone 3g By Mike Ricci

This is a review of the best skins ever to the iPhone 3g. I ordered the skin on July 24th and received it on July 25th. I ordered 2 back one piece skins which came to $12.00 shipped much cheaper than invisible shield. What comes in the mail is just the skins no solution or card to take out bubbles.

I think att is fixing what ever the problem is with the 3g reception here is why and this is just my observation. I got the iphone on July 24th had very low 3g and had a hard time switching to edge. Went to apple store got a swap out. Had about the same reception but would switch back and forth fine. At work I had 2 to 3 bars of 3g and about 93 to 99 db then all of a sudden I could not get any 3g at my work zero bars 110 -113 db then right to edge this lasted for 3 days I thought it was my phone but at home during the same time frame I had 2 to 3 bars of 3g and my drive I had great 3g 5 bars most of the time. I come into work on the fourth day and now I have 3 to 4 bars of 3g 81 – 94 db . ok so maybe a bad tower that got fixed but now at my house same thing happened I went from 2 to 3 bars of 3g to zero I could not get it in my house at all . outside for 2 blocks or more all edge where before was 3g 3 or 4 bars . it has been about three days since I got no 3g in the house now today guess what 3g in house better than ever 81db- 95 3 or 4 bars and driving the blocks that were out it was down in the low 70’s db and just yesterday it was 110db or all edge. So to me it seems they are updating the cell towers one at a time . just to add I did not update my phone to 2.0.1 I am still on 2.0. also to add my other 3g phone had no reception at my house during that period either. here is a screen shot of my 3g
