LogMeIn Ignition has just been updated for iPhone and iPad specifically with iOS 4 support.

Normally, this would not necessarily be too exciting, except I just got done testing this release. I am very excited to report that I was able to log in to my remote desktop, then check mail and other apps. Put the iPhone to sleep, come back minutes later and open LogMeIn Ignition and… my desktop was still there!

They’re no doubt using iOS 4 multitasking’s task completion feature (the same one that lets uploads finish in the background). It won’t let you keep the connection open forever — more like 10 minutes — but it’s still fantastic and I can’t recommend this app enough. This is very exciting to see developers adopting iOS 4 so quickly and in a useful manor.

Oh, and here is a tip. If you keep LogMeIn “running” in the background for a while, and want to make sure you don’t get a timeout error when you return to the app, check the setting on the client machine. It needs to be more than iOS 4’s 10 minute task completion limit (the default on mine was 20 min.)

CyanogenMod 6 (Froyo) status update

CyanogenMod 6 (Froyo) status update

cyaongenmod

If you use a custom ROM on your Android phone, you should know about CyanogenMod.  If you don't, go hit Google now, then come right back.  (pretty freakin' sweet, huh?) With the drop of the Froyo (Android 2.2) source code everyone is patiently waiting for the code wizards behind the CyaongenMod project to give us the kind of custom goodness we've become used to.  To quell the mountain of inquiries, Cyanogen himself has updated the CyanogenMod homepage with a progress report.

The condensed version? Things are going well.  The Nexus One and Droid ports "just work," the Dream/Sapphire port has everything but one minor issue working, Wes Garner has the Slide (MyTouch 3G slide) port well underway, and ports for the Desire, Incredible, and Evo have no status report as of yet.  Also, we're told to expect some experimental releases (for the Nexus One and Droid most likely) by the weekend.  (YAY!)  Hit the source link to read the post and take a minute to thank Steve and the whole crew for their hard work!

Motorola Droid X -- hold it any way you like

Motorola Droid X -- hold it any way you like

hold it any way you want to

Read the fine print :) .  This is supposedly a full page ad in the New York Times (can any readers verify?) for the new Motorola Droid X, that lets you know you're free to hold the phone any way you like. I'm not much for the mudslinging, but I'm lovin' it.  Antenna? Droid does. [Twitter via  @sarahintampa]

Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S class is 'upgradeable to Android 2.2'

Yes, the Samsung Galaxy S class is 'upgradeable to Android 2.2'

Verizon Fascinate

This kind of should go without saying, but Samsung said it last night, and so shall we: The Galaxy S class of smartphones it just announced -- the Sprint Epic 4G, Verizon Fascinate, T-Mobile Vibrant and AT&T Captivate -- all will be "upgradeable to Android 2.2." Sammy couldn't quite come out and say they will be upgraded -- you have to get the carriers involved, natch -- but we can't think of any reason why they wouldn't be upgraded.

In the interim, we've got some good news. We were running some late-night benchmarks on the AT&T Captivate, pitting it against the Motorola Droid X on Neocore. And the Captivate won, hands-down. That's a big plus for those of you worried about not having Froyo and the JIT at launch. We're not worried about it, and neither should you be.

First Firefox 4 candidate build appears in Mozilla nightlies

First Firefox 4 candidate build appears in Mozilla nightlies

Filed under: Mozilla, Browsers

OK, so at this point the change is little more than bumping a number, but the arrival of a Firefox 4 candidate in the Mozilla FTP is still nice to see.

Recently we've seen several changes land in Firefox 4, most noticeably in the default Windows theme which now has tabs-on-top by default. Don't worry, though -- Firefox 4 will be as customizable as it ever was, and you'll be able to switch back to the old-style tabs on the bottom view if you wish.

Perhaps the most impressive development I've seen so far, however, is the browser's hardware acceleration chops. As Sebastian showed you in his four-browser HTML5 showdown video, Firefox keeps pace with Internet Explorer 9 -- something Opera and Chrome couldn't manage.

With Firefox 4 due before the end of this year, let's hope Mozilla has a few more tricks up their sleeve... Whaddya say, Aza? Maybe that Tab Candy thing is coming?

Hulu Plus: $10/mo for HD streaming, more episodes, iPhone and iPad support

Hulu Plus: $10/mo for HD streaming, more episodes, iPhone and iPad support

Filed under: Video, Web services

Hulu's much-anticipated monthly subscription service has arrived. It's called Hulu Plus, and it offers all of the features we've heard rumors about for months: HD streaming, access to more episodes and the ability to watch Hulu on your TV are all included. The price is also just as anticipated: $10/mo.

Two things weren't entirely anticipated about Hulu Plus, though. One: iPad and iPhone support, but no support for Android. This is interesting stuff, considering that Hulu was one of the few Flash holdouts that Adobe was using to prove Steve Jobs wrong and show that the web still runs on Flash. Now Apple can say iOS devices have Hulu, and now Hulu can say it works with iOS devices. I'm not sure which is more important.

Two: the ads. We thought paying $10 a month would get around Hulu ads, but that's not the case. Even Plus subscribers will still have to watch a few commercials. There's a bit of an uproar about this right now, but people pay a lot more than $10/mo for cable, and they still have to watch ads on most of those channels. Is it really that big a deal?

The bandwidth definitely might be a big deal, though. We'll have to wait and see what effect this will have on Internet service providers. On a related note, I really, really wish I had kept my unlimited data plan for iPhone. Doh!

T-Mobile Vibrant hands-on

T-Mobile Vibrant hands-on

T-Mobile Vibrant

T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S is known as the Vibrant, and it's as slim and sleek as its cousins. Same 1GHz Hummingbird processor, same 4-inch Super AMOLED display. T-Mo just had to show us how Avatar looks on the phone, and while it's not quite the same as in the theater, it's still pretty damn good for a 4-inch smartphone. Check it out after the break.

Update: hands-on photos!
