Free Apple shipping
In brief: Apple is offering free shipping on all orders from its online store as part of "Cyber Monday," German iPhones customers who pay the additional premium are already reaping the benefits of their Apple-unlocked handsets, and Eternal Storms Software today released EPSQuickLookPlugin. An avid Mac developer is offering a sneak peek at WideMail 0.1.2 with customizable preferences, and Iconfactory along with ARTIS Software has released Frenzic Web demo for iPhone and iPod touch.
German already unlocking iPhones
German iPhone owners who paid an additional premium are already unlocking their handsets for use with carriers other than Apple's exclusive partner. Customers purchasing an iPhone can pay the premium, after which the handset's IMEI number is recorded and sent to Apple. Roughly 24 hours later, connecting the iPhone to iTunes automatically unlocks the device in just a few seconds, after which users can sync their phones normally with iTunes.
Eternal Storms Software today released EPSQuickLookPlugin, a plug-in for Apple's QuickLook technology that makes previews available as EPS files. Users need only copy the application to a specific folder to activate the software to extend the functionality of QuickLook, and the utility is available for free requiring Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
