Worth the Upgrade?
As you all know, iOS 4.3 has arrived. But, is the upgrade worth the hassle?
iOS 4.3 Specs:

- Performance tweaks.
- Other features for iPad
The iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G are now officially discontinued from updates as of 4.3, and won't be receiving the update. The Personal Hotspot feature will be cool for any Verizon IPhone 4 owners with an unlimited data plan. But with AT&T doing ..
Retina + iPad
Coming to Theme Builder 2.1.
We\'re proud to announce the official addition of three new devices to CodeThemed -- iPhone 4, iPod touch 4, and iPad. They\'re coming to the next Theme Builder update, v2.1.
What does this mean?
CodeThemed now fully supports the creation, previewing, and downloading of HD themes for both the iPad\'s large screen size and the Retina display
(Apple\'s term for a high quality display, which makes themes look stunning).
But, isn\'t the iPad\'s screen like, huge? How will I preview themes?
Great question! We\'ve created an amazing solution to just that, and we call it Double Sizing. When viewing any themes that are made for the Retina display or the iPad, you\'ll notice a new 2x button on the upper right corner of the emulator. Clicking that will open your theme full screen, so you can see every fine detail.Read more..

iPhone 4 or Nexus S
Which device is king?
Hello again you CodeThemed lovers! I am bring to you once again the age old battle — Android vs. Apple! With the recent launch of the Nexus S it has had some iPhone 4 owners looking at taking on a sleek Android powered monster.

Everyone should update immediately, as we have switched to a new, more secure system which prevents older versions of the app from connecting to the site.

What Apple Brings To The Table
The long awaited firmware update was released June 21st
to the public via the usual iTunes update method. As a UK Apple user said, the update was made available at approximately 6:20pm and downloaded very fast (5 minutes). Some US users (as expected) had very slow download speeds as Apple's servers struggled with the amount of traffic connecting and some people even experienced speeds as slow as 100kbs.Immediate Thoughts
