AOL Launches Free Versions of AIM and Truveo on Apple App Store 
AOL has launched two new iPhone OS applications: AIM, the leading instant messaging service and Truveo, the leading video search engine are available as free downloads from the Apple App Store.

“With AIM and Truveo for the iPhone, consumers now have access to the world’s largest instant messaging network and millions of online videos,” said Kevin Conroy, Executive Vice President of AOL. “Over the past twelve months, AOL has revitalised its Mac development efforts and we’re thrilled to be bringing our world-class communications and multi-media experience to iPhone users around the world via the App Store.”

The new AIM and Truveo applications for the iPhone were built using Apple’s iPhone Software Development Kit (SDK) and provide users a rich, full-featured experience, with added features unique to the iPhone.

* AIM for iPhone brings together all of the core features of AIM – such as real-time communication, the Buddy List window and the ability to see when friends and contacts are online and available to chat – and combines them with a host of new capabilities that make IM’ing from the iPhone easy and convenient, whether over a Wi-Fi, EDGE, or 3G network.

AIM has been designed from the ground up to take advantage of the iPhone’s unique user interface and advanced capabilities. New features developed specifically for the iPhone include the use of Gestures, which allows users to simply tap to start a new message or to swipe a finger to switch between conversations; Favourites, which puts the buddies with whom you keep in touch at your fingertips; and the ability to easily incorporate a photo taken with the iPhone's built in camera as a Buddy Icon. AIM for iPhone will be available to users worldwide. 

* Truveo Mobile Video Search for iPhone maximises the device’s premium video experience and makes it easy for users to search and browse through millions of online videos while on the go. Truveo’s leading video search engine provides direct links to video content that’s been optimised for the iPhone from a wide variety of video sources including CNN, Discovery Channel, HBO, NBC, PBS, Channel, Comedy Central, MTV and YouTube. Localised versions of Truveo Mobile Video Search for iPhone will be available for the U.S., Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, New Zealand, and the UK, with support for additional countries to follow in the coming months.
Both applications are available for free from Apple’s App Store.

I have a Q6600 that is prime95 stable at 3.6 GHZ, but the heat is becoming unmanageable at 67C-70C deg.

I can upgrade my cooling, but one of my ideas is to go to a dual core E8500.

Which will produce more heat, the Q6600 at 3.6 GHZ or an E8500 at 4.3 GHZ?

Depends on the volts going through them, but more than likely the Q6600

Definitely the Q6600. THe E8500 will not be needing as much power as the Q6600 at those clocks. If they do require the same voltage, you are cooking your E8500...

Yeah, the Q6600 would produce more heat for sure, as lamboman said, but if I were you I'd get a better CPU cooler or have more ventilation going through your system if possible. What cooler have you got at the moment?

E8500 @ 4.3 Ghz ?? I`d think that hotter than a 3.6 Ghz Q6600 tbh.

16-07-2008, 13:12:01

Nope, it won't. Not as much voltage going through.

Thanks for the replies gentlemen!

I was kind of hoping that the dual core 45 nm E8500 would run cooler and my current CPU cooler would be up to the job. I was intending to get a dual core to play with anyway (higher overclocks).

What cooler have you got at the moment?

I'm currently using a Corsair Nautilus 500 water cooler.

It will depend entirely on the chip you have, as with most things in overclocking.

Some Q6600s need 1.5/6v for 3.6ghz, some require no more than stock 1.35v. Likewise with the dual core. It could require the top end of what ever 45nm chips are capable of, or it could only require a very small amount.

Generalise as much as you want, but unless your buying a tested chip it could go either way.

i require 1.52volts for 3.6ghz, in windows however it dips to 1.44-1.46
