Video: Do you miss the sharp edges and flat sides of the iPhone 4, but can't live without the improved technologies inside the curvaceous iPhone 7? If you've got access to a giant computer-controlled saw and a massive industrial belt sander, you can have the best of both worlds — minus your iPhone 7's warranty.
The whole hip pocket notebook fad is getting a little tired, but DODOcase — the makers of some gorgeous premium cases for the iPhone, iPad, and other devices — might have just revived it with its new DODOnotes iPhone-friendly notebooks.

Adam Crouchley loves Apple. He had an iPhone 4 and recently upgraded to an iPhone 5 and freely admits that he's deep into the ecosystem. You might remember a little while ago, Adam and Apple had a bit of a falling out. No, this isn't a biblical story involving a snake and a girl, instead it's the story of how one New Zealand man took the world's largest company to task and won.
Deathgrip. It sounds like a Harry Potter villain or a Darth Vader finishing-move. No matter what it sounds like, it's still the arch-nemesis of cellular networks. When Apple addressed the iPhone 4's deathgrip issue — dubbed Antennagate — it dragged other manufacturers down with it by saying that the same thing happens to all phones when you hold them wrong. Those manufacturers quickly rebuked the claims of Steve Jobs, but inside a sealed, top-secret Australian facility, behind a thick, steel door, Telstra was testing all of its handsets for deathgrip symptoms. The results: deathgrip affects every handset ever made.
I doubt Peter Jackson will be reaching for his smartphone when considering what gear to record his next opus on, but for more conventional folk, you can create some impressive moving pictures with the humble mobile.

With the two year anniversary of the release of the iPhone 4 in Australia just past, many folks who bought their iPhone 4 after that period would now be approaching the end of their contracts. The iPhone 4 has been known to experience some common defects later in its life (does anyone have a flaky home button?), so here is a guide for how to get Apple to honour the Trade Practices Act of 1974, and provide you with free warranty service: that is, a replacement for your defective iPhone.

The tiny Tiltpod Mobile is designed to attach to your keys, ensuring it's always close at hand — or at least somewhere in your pocket.
FWD highlights an early iPhone 4 concept design created by Apple's designer Shin Nishibori. It unequivocally confirms what I've repeatedly said since the introduction of the iPhone 4: it feels like an old school Sony product. Just like looks like a 70s Betamax VCR.
If you bring your broken black iPhone 4 to the Apple Store, you might get a fresh iPhone 4S as your replacement phone. What?! Yep, because of supply constraints, many Apple Stores (at least in the States) don't have any black iPhone 4 units (16GB/32GB) in stock so they have been instructed by Apple to give customers an iPhone 4S instead.
It might add almost 2.3kg to the weight of your phone, but this armoured iPhone case with one-inch of thick steel plating on the back is promised to stop a .50 calibre round. So what you're really paying $US650 for is peace of mind.
As far as we can tell this $US65 faux Cobra iPhone case serves three primary purposes.
It might be waterproof to 30m, but TAT7's iPhone Scuba Case only includes three strategically-placed mechanical buttons for launching and operating the default camera app. So updating your Facebook profile from Davy Jones' locker isn't going to happen.
