iPhoneDrive is Here. iVideo is Just Around The Corner.

Just a few more things your iPhone does. Use your iPhone or iPod Touch for file storage, ensuring that you always have your important data backed up. Additionally, iPhoneDrive provides easy access to your iTunes media, iPhoto albums and notes. Simply drag music, videos and notes from the iPhone or iPod Touch to your desktop or simply double-click to copy.Storing files on your iPhone enables you to use your iPhone’s unused storage space as a disk drive to backup data or transfer between Macs. iPhoneDrive’s familiar Mac OS X interface makes it simple to transfer files between your Mac and your iPhone. Just drag and drop files between the iPhoneDrive window and your desktop, or use the iPhoneDrive toolbar. iPhoneDrive is the easiest and quickest way to access your iPhone’s Notes on your Mac desktop. Simply connect any iPhone and double-click notes to open them in your favorite text editor.
This week at Macworld 2008, Ecamm demonstrated a piece of software written for hacked iPhones which uses iPhone’s camera as a wireless webcam. The setup consists of two companion pieces of softrware, listening software on your Mac which waits for a signal from nearby iPhones, and transmitting software on the iPhone. The setup works over Wi-Fi and currently captures 10 frames per second. The developer chose the fps arbitrarily and is confident the number could be increased.Ecammm is currently not offering the iPhone webcam software for public use and stresses that it is merely a proof-of-concept.If your iPhone isn’t hacked, you may be interested in Ecamm’s iPhoneDrive Software which has been updated to add music ripping and playback support, as well as some other tweaks and improvements.Currently iPhoneDrive is still being tested for reliability and will be released to the public soon.
