Not everyone has Minecraft-creator Markus "Notch" Persson's money (or candy room) so the rest of us have to devise our own methods of sorting M&Ms by color. The English blogger behind reviewmylife has an idea that combines, among other things, an iPhone 5s, an Arduino and an eBay-sourced 12V 8...

Line2 has an interesting premise - it lets you add a second phone number to your iPhone and turns your iPad or iPod touch into a VoIP phone. The company announced on Monday that it's sweetening its service by adding picture and location support for iOS devices. If your device runs iOS 5.0 or...

The long awaited and much vilified AT&T MMS service was finally launched in the U.S. yesterday. I've scoured the Apple support boards, and it seems like it was pretty tame, with some reports of failure to get the update, failure to get the MMS functions after an update, late delivery of MMS mess...

MMS (multimedia messaging service) has come to the iPhone 3G and the iPhone 3GS. You'll need to update your carrier settings by plugging in your iPhone to allow iTunes to see it, then go to "Check for Update." The update adds a 37k file (at least on the Mac), named: 'ATT_US.ipcc' file to your /Us...
