If you're looking to buy a new iPhone, you may want to take advantage of AT&T's new trade-in promotion launched earlier this month. If your smartphone is in working order, and you purchased it within the last three years, AT&T will give you at least $100 for it. You can use its trade-in calculator to see how much you'll get for your old phone. It also will take feature phones in trade, but may give less than $100 for them. You can also trade in tablets and netbooks. AT&T will give you an AT&T Promotion Card good for purchasing products and services, or, if you wish, you can donate the value to Cell Phones for Soldiers. According to the promotion, "working order" means the phone can be turned on and off, the screen works, the phone has no damage, and the battery can be recharged.
Taking great shots on your iPhone just got easier with two great freebies recently added to the App Store. Remote Shutter allows you to view/take remote shots through any WiFi or Bluetooth paired set of iOS devices, and Gradients will let you apply your own custom filters to create photographic art!
Remote Shutter is a technology-binding application that greatly extends the coolness of owning multiple iOS devices. It allows you to remotely control the shutter/camera of an iOS device through a wireless network. You can see the live camera view, take pictures, and also configure the countdown timer to take a delayed shot of up to 30 seconds.

This article targets advanced users who would like to play back MKV video files off SMB networking shares; that is, without copying them on their iDevices first.
Over at MacRumors (original question & answer), I've been asked to elaborate on the current state of SMB + MKV support on iOS.
A great pair of high performance headphones is a key ingredient in how we experience our iDevices. Many apps even suggest using headphones to help you immerse in apps and music. Because I'm aware of how much quality headphones can enhance our iDevice experience, I often review headphones of all different styles and quality for iPhone Life readers. In this series for the discerning audiophile, I will review several new and noteworthy entries in the extremely crowded headphone market.
The first pair of headphones I'd like to introduce you to is the Meze 88 Classics ($309). Mezes are the Lamborghini of headphones, exuding style and quality, both rare and luxurious. The Meze 88 Classics are some of the best headphones I have come across in a good while; one any music aficionado should know about.
If you’ve ever used a stylus with an iDevice, chances are you’ve either worried about losing it or already have lost a few. But thanks to AEGLO, those days might just be behind you. The Hong Kong based company has developed and produced the FLAXUS, touted as the world’s first wearable mobile stylus.
FLAXUS is unique for a couple of reasons. For starters, its design is a result of the need to combine functionality with style.
One of the company’s founders commented:
