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.

EPSQuickLookPlugin released

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.

WideMail 0.1.2 sneak peek, Frenzic Web demo

An independent Apple developer is offering a sneak peek of WideMail, his widescreen Apple Mail plug-in that offers customizable settings with the promise of a preference pane in the near future.... Iconfactory and ARTIS Software have announced the release of Frenzic Web demo, a Javascript-based demonstration version of a desktop game that offers iPhone owners a taste of what the actual game will be like once Apple releases its software development kit.

    Whie it is nice that they offer free shipping it is disingenious to claim that free shipping is only offered as a special promotion.

    THE APPLE STORE ALWAYS OFFERS FREE SHIPPING for all orders over 25 dollars. Yes, it's nice that they offer it today for everything, but let's be honest - very few people purchase items under $25 in the store.

    Alright! I'm heading over to stand in line right now at my local store. This is the day we've all been waiting for!

    And it's just amazing how apple has kept it a secret. The whole Intel switchover was apparently a large deception to make people think the G5 powerbook was never coming out. Man, that Steve Jobs guy is sneaky.
