iPhone slip serves up free 3G Skype calls

Matt

Actually, it was quite fast...

Short version: Skype using VoIPover3G and Backgrounder is now working again

Long version: There was a problem with Skype not getting along with mobilesubstrate on jailbroken devices. Saurik (creator of Cydia) tweeted last night that a new mobilesubstrate (0.9.2805-1) has been released which takes care of the problem.

Cheers

Not so fast

Ah, it seems that Skype is crashing jailbroken iPhones and there isn't currently a workaround:

Back to using Truphone or Fring to make Skype calls - they work with VoIPover3G and backgrounder.

VoIPover3G

Or, on a jailbroken iPhone running the regular firmware, just install VoIPover3G - enables Wifi-only apps to work over 3G. Very nice!

Apple iPhoto gets in your face

not so bad

@Stewart

The change to a single file (actually a package) happened with iPhoto '08. Just right-click and Show Package Contents to see the files. You can also create aliases to those files or folders within the package.

You *can* upgrade in-store on Friday

Or at least that's what the central iPhone nicecustomerservicelady told me: http://www.allaboutiphone.net/2008/07/16gb-upgraders-fear-not/

Fingers crossed then.
