iPhone Gets Push Email – From Yahoo That Is

Also from IntoMobile,
“Well, it seems that Yahoo! has made some server-side changes to their iPhone push email system, and we’re hearing reports that many iPhone users are getting their precious email pushed to their iPhone. Go try it out, your mileage may vary.

If push emails aren’t working for you right away, try:

  • logging into your Yahoo! mobile email account and logging out
  • delete and recreate Yahoo! email account on iPhone
  • create a new Yahoo! email account
  • restore your iPhone (if you dare)”

iPhone Firmware v.1.1.4 Released

“The new code “fixes bugs and supersedes all previous versions,” so if you like your third-party applications and all the joy that comes with a jailbroken iPhone, you’ll want to stay away from the iPhone v1.1.4 firmware. At least, you’ll want to hold off on updating to the new firmware until the iPhone hacking community jailbreaks the iPhone v1.1.4 firmware.”

Trivia of the Day – Name That Movie – 21 February

Hmm…we haven’t done this for quite some time, let’s hit it again. Answer will be posted Sunday.

“Let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He’s a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusement, His own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It’s the goof of all time. Look — but don’t touch. Touch — but don’t taste. Taste — don’t swallow. Ahahaha. And while you’re jumpin’ from one foot to the next, what is He doing? He’s laughin’ His sick, f–kin’ ass off. He’s a tight-ass. He’s a sadist. He’s an absentee landlord. Worship that? Never.”

[Updated: 24] Answer is Devil’s Advocate.

Music Video – Paula Abdul’s Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow

Stayed home last night and watch the first elimination round of American Idol (I know….LOL).  Well, the all new Paula Abdul comeback video (with Randy and Simon in it of course) was premiered towards the end of the show and I think it’s really hot the dance choreography is really Paula’s style).  Take a look for yourself.
