Can I track a friends I-phone to see their location.

I want to surprise someone at a Party that I was invited to but said I couldnt attend, therefore was not given the location details.

You need to install a free App to do this. It can then be tracked live on a ggogle map. Only thing is the app needs to be running for it to work so your friend would know they was being tracked. It also drains the battery very quick.

Plus an iPhone can't multitask, so they would need to avoid using the phone for anything else.

Not a very "smart" phone, Android and WinMo ftw!

Yeah, no flash support is like... something you'd expect to see on the antiques roadshow. Apple are just lame in their refusal to allow Adobe to develop Flash for the iPhone and iPad.

Poor poor souls, whilst the rest of us are busy watching flash content, they just get a horrible "x" haha!

Anyone ever been stupid enough to pay for an application? laugh

Flash on the iPhone would be lame anyway, battery life is shit enough without it haha. Half way through watching a video and bang, gone haha. But no Flash on the iPad is rediculous.

plus it's costs you an arm and a leg to get an ipad/iphone/ifail in the first place (the most expensive app i've seen is the tomtom which costs 60.00! and now Apple are sueing google over the android phone's touch screen capabilities and wants them banned everywhere. Microsoft tactics much?

Apple are scum, they openly robbed tonnes of technology from the mobile phone technology alliance, most of which were developed by Nokia.

Apple are the only phone company who don't want to join the alliance, because they dont want to share technology, which is fair enough, but that also means they cannot use other technologies developed by other manufacturers.

Apple are just out for a free-ride, as always, they are not innovating, they are just robbing the idea's and technology of others (Google do enough of this too so they are well suited together lol).

I hope Nokia slaughter them in court.

Apple are stuck with the iPhone OS, it's too battery and resource intensive to allow for further development, and 99% of users are simpletons, which means they can't really offer anything advanced on the phones for the fear of the users not understand how to use them.

Still, it leaves the real tech-heads with Android, Maemo and WinMo. It helps define those who are smart from those who are simple haha.

Shadow, what do you think will be bigger, Maemo or Android? My new phone has my beloved WinMo on it, but there are plenty of Android 2.1 ROM's available for it. I wish I had WebOS though lol. I think Android will be the future myself, unless Palm go under and WebOS becomes open source. Maemo is in theory the ultimate, but I think it may well be just "too" alike a PC. It's practically Debian lol!

i wouldn't know tbh it's just a case of waiting and seeing who wins in court and which OS types get more advanced and which ones will bite the dust

It's alright wheels, one day (it they aint done it already) some mad ass will get Android with HTC Sense running on an iPhone. Now that would be a bomb!!

I don't actually hate the iPhone, its a fantastic device, but I just dont understand the fanfair surrounging it just because its another overpriced Apple device that has some really surprising and pathetic limitations. If it could multi-task out of the box, and had decent battery life, the drawbacks wouldnt be half as bad. Oh and the OS looks and feels dated now, when it was new it was a breath of fresh air, but whilst the rest of the industry has developed, caught up and surpassed (HTC Sense for WinMo (not used it on Android) and WebOS make iPhone OS look terribly clunky) the OS, Apple have done pretty much nothing.

The iPhone 4 is going to have to be something pretty darn special; as for the style and exclusivity element that was originally attatched to the iPhone when it launched, thats gone out of the window now, every smackrat and scally have them nowadays, they really need to make the iPhone 4 look significantly different to keep people interested.

The other thing that annoys me is people going on about "apps" all the time, as though they are something special... I don't think people realise that "app" is just short for applications, of which there thousands available for Symbian (thats shit though) and tens of thousands available for WinMo/PocketPC/WindowsCE!! And Microsoft don't give a shit what you install, and they dont even care that nobody pays for Windows Mobile the ROM's are openly cooked and shared around haha! Apple on the other hand, will only allow you to install apps they the want you to install, and most of the apps are shite, WinMo apps are very expansive and in-depth because they are made by professional software companies and need to be. And ye can get em all free at ppcwarez.com - no need for an app store lol.

As for the iPad though... epic fail. Imho, the future is neither tablets/slates or laptops, it is hybrids of the two, with twist screens, and enough processing power to multitask comfortably with low heat and energy usage. Oh and they need considerably slimmer profiles than the ones HP have had out for the past decade.

Except the IPad will sell millions as the IPhone did/does. It's how it works with Apple!

not to mention that the ipad/iphione/ipodtouch are being recognised as gaming handhelds. i've seen half of their library and it's chock full of shovelware and extremely short games if i wanted touchscreen gaming the DS/DSI/DSI XL suit me fine alongside a PSP

Well, the reason Apple have not enabled flash on their phone is that they are pioneering forward, flash is now old hat technology and they are kind of forcing the hand of developers etc into using more advanced faster scripting language such as HTML5 etc. Steve Jobs has said that flash is to slow if adobe where to make it faster then Apple may look at using it but until then no flash. In my opinion it everything should have flash and HTML5 should gradually be phased in. Burt what do I know im just a user.
