COMPUTERWORLD: I’ve been thinking about Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster’s belief that Apple may launch an all-in-one Apple television in the next 2-4 years. It makes sense as a natural continuation of Apple’s current strategy, but what would an Apple television look like? What would it do? And would you buy it?

When Apple CEO Steve Jobs promised iPhone 4 buyers they would receive a free case for their device did he mention any limitations to the deal? We can’t recall he did, but it looks like Apple’s quietly creating a few obstacles to customers attempting to get hold of a free case, at least in Taiwan. expand full story

Although Steve Jobs told a Swedish DJ that internet tethering (iPhone’s connection used for a WiFi iPad, in this case) wouldn’t be coming to the iPad, beta 2 of iOS 4.2 for iPad tells a different story. Hidden within the APN network settings on the iPad 3G  is a new section dedicated to internet tethering. This tethering appears to be the type of tethering iPhones currently use versus tethering the iPhone’s internet to an iPad.

This section asks for the usual username and password to setup internet tethering, and this is similar to what the iPhone had before tethering got an official iOS interface. Because of this, we believe that internet tethering is in the iPad’s future and may even launch with iOS 4.2 in November.

One important thing to note is that we could not replicate this new settings pane on an iPad 3G running on AT&T’s network. This screenshot is from an iPad 3G running on 3’s network in Europe.

Thanks, Anton!

Chase has been doing this for months and other banks have been doing it for years but Paypal will soon accept checks via iPhone (and iPod touch?) camera.

Chambers said that this new app will allow you to take a picture of the front and back of a check with your iPhone camera, and it will be added to your PayPal balance.

The Square iPhone app is taking a bigger step by eliminating the check altogether but you’ll need to purchase a little piece of hardware for that.  Paypal only needs your iPhone camera.

This is helping grease the wheels of the economy people!

Updated Paypal app will be here in the next few days. expand full story

Some interesting info coming out of the requisite AppleTV teardown from iFixit.  First off, the AppleTV has an 8GB Samsung Flash chip but room for another 8GB  (v2 1080P version?).  While most of that space is probably reserved for caching movies, a few apps could use this space to build a home.

The Panasonic board that contains the Broadcom Wifi chip also has an FM radio.  Apple could enable this at some point (or some hackers could like the Droid 2) or maybe it just came along for the ride?

Same A4 and 256 MB of RAM as the iPad or iPod touch.  Good news for App developers.

And finally, a curious array of connections that coincidentally lines up with Apple’s 30-pin dock connector (below). expand full story
