Photos Disappearing due to a Bug in iPhone OS 3.0?

Photos Disappearing due to a Bug in iPhone OS 3.0?

Based on this Apple Discussions thread, it looks like there is a bug in iPhone OS 3.0, it is not a critical bug but an annoying one.

Users are complaining that photos taken using iPhone's camera can't be accessed from the built-in Photo app or can't be seen in iPhone's camera roll, they seem to disappear.

According to iLounge, the bug appears to pertain only to photos with the name IMG_10000 or higher.

New and Improved iPhone Remote App is Brilliant

New and Improved iPhone Remote App is Brilliant
I bought Apple TV more than a year back and have enjoyed renting movies and listening to music. Even though the UI is extremely easy to navigate, the one thing that I hated about it is the remote that comes along with it, it's the same white remote that I got with my iMac.

It's fine to use it to navigate but it is pathetic when it comes to searching for media on the iTunes Store.  Thankfully Apple released the Remote App for the iPhone and iPod Touch (it was the first official  native iPhone app on the iPhone App Store) which made it a lot easier to control Apple TV then the tiny white remote. It also worked as a Wi-Fi keyboard for Apple TV. I might have the benefit of hindsight but the initial version of the Remote app still wasn't good enough.

One of the features overlooked in iPhone OS 3.0 was support for the HTTP streaming protocol, which uses adaptive bitrates. 

Folks at NewTeeVee have just reported that Apple will produce its first-ever live event streamed to the iPhone: a concert by the electronica band Underworld, which will make use of this HTTP streaming protocol so that users can watch it directly in iPhone's embedded QuickTime player rather than needing an iPhone app.
