iOS4 Bluetooth Headphone features

After finally updating my iPhone 3G to iOS 4 Seed, I began to notice little feature enhancements related to the Bluetooth headphones. I have a pretty generic bluetooth stereo headset with microphone.

1) Ring tone played in the headset.
No longer do we need to hear the default ring indicator built into the headset, we hear the iPhone ringtone.

2) iPhone Volume control effects headset volume
This was a surprise and I did not even realize that it was working. This is one of those things that you expect to work.

A simple solution to Printing From the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch

After playing with an iPad for over a week now, there has been one thing that was missing, "How to Print"

A simple solution was discovered which allows users to print anything on the screen of an iPad. The solution would with the iPhone and the iPod Touch.

The solution that was discovered is available in the current 3.1.3 version of the iPhone. Best of all after doing some research, all previous versions of the iPhone OS support the solution.

Apple Blocks cross compiled app with iPhone SDK 4

For my apps, I have only used Objective-C and XCode for development. Friends and fellow developers have send me links for Cross-Compilers that allow you to write code in everything from C# to Adobe Flash. Well it seems Apple has a "Block for that"

In this article on Daring Fireball John Gruber points out the section 3.3.1 in the new version of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement.

So it would seem that your either playing with the tools you given or your no longer allowed to play in the game.
