ICYMI, the royal wedding is happening this Friday. We're pulling an all-nighter here at Sugar HQ to watch it live (check out our royal wedding live stream guide!). If you, too, have been sucked in by the romance of it all, you can show your support with a Will and Kate Barely There iPhone case from Case-Mate. Choose from one of four different styles for your iPhone 4 or 3GS, and keep track of the royal wedding madness thanks to the variety of different apps available for your iOS-running smartphone. Check out all the styles in the gallery, and hopefully we'll see you online in the wee hours of Friday morning to celebrate the nuptials!
Flickr is one of the most widely known photo-sharing sites for professional shutterbugs. But according to a new graph released by the Yahoo-owned site, recreational iPhone 4-toting photographers are gaining ground.
The graph shows the most popular cameras used on the site: Nikon D90, Apple iPhone 4, Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi, Canon EOS 5D Mark II, and Canon EOS Rebel T1i are the most popular. Another interesting graph details the most popular camera phones used for uploads with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, HTC EVO 4G, and iPod Touch rounding out the top five. Why is the iPhone so widely used among photographers? I've got five reasons for you. Check them out below.
- Portability — The iPhone 4 is tiny, and can slide right into your bag, pocket, or clutch with minimal bulk, which is quite the contrast to bigger, more professional-grade cameras.
- Camera apps — Photoshop, Camera+, and Hipstamatic make it easy to turn regular images into something extraordinary.
- Social features — Instagram and its offspring, like Postagram, let users share their images with various groups of friends instantly rather than hooking up to a computer, downloading images, then uploading them to their social networks.
See the rest after the jump.
I'm totally giving up. While I was still hanging on to my white iPhone 4 dreams by a thin thread, I can't hold out any longer. But that's not the only (sad) news regarding Apple though. Find out more about the rumored release date of the iPhone 5 after the jump.
AT&T customers can add hotspot technology to their existing plans for $45, giving them up to 4GB of data use. This includes a $25 data plan for 2GB a month and an additional $20 tethering charge that comes with 2GB of additional data usage. The Verizon iPhone launched with a 2GB mobile hotspot for $20/month.
What's more, since Verizon, Target, and Ebay are all offering some great trade-in deals, you may actually be able to pay for the new service fees and installation with the money you've made off of your old device. Can't beat that!
Verizon is also pimping its new FiOS app for the iPhone, which allows you to control your DVR, use your iPhone 4 as a remote, and even send pics from your phone to the TV. Check out the latest ad and get more details after the break.
A new survey recently found that men think their phones are sexy, or at least, many think that a hip phone will make them more attractive to the opposite sex. Significantly fewer women agreed, but as a geek girl, I may have to contend that some of the phones out there are a little bit sexy.

It's the first report I've heard of customers receiving their new phones, a full three days before they're available in stores — guess Verizon meant it when it said delivery via two-day air!
