Wednesday fun video: Jon Stewart celebrates freedom from AT&T [Humor]

After yesterday's announcement of the iPhone 4's arrival to Verizon, Jon Stewart had a hilarious segment of The Daily Show celebrating his freedom from AT&T. His corespondent, John Oliver, joins halfway through with interviews with people in the street - all streamed from his AT&T iPhone with terrible reception.

For the past three or four years, those of us in the iPhone community have sacrificed one thing for the ability to carry around every photograph we’ve ever taken, or song we’ve ever listened to, or home video, or compass - we have sacrificed the ability to make phone calls.

For a good laugh, check out the video after the break!

Phil Schiller: Building the Verizon iPhone

After yesterday's Verizon iPhone announcement, Apple's Senior Vice President Phil Schiller has weighed in on what it was like building the Verizon iPhone. The two companies began talks to build a CDMA variant for Verizon's network over 2 years ago in 2008. Over 1,000 test models later, we've officially got a Verizon variant.

Schiller says the task was anything but easy. Apple knows their own hardware but sometimes getting software and hardware to work together isn't an easy goal to accomplish.

“A big part of it is the software, I’d say the biggest part,” ... “It uses the hardware in different ways.”

Microsoft doesn't want Apple to have a trademark on "App Store"

Microsoft does not want Apple to gain a trademark for the term "App Store" and is currently fighting to be able to use the term for its own mobile application store. They have recently asked the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to refuse the trademark on the term "App Store" for Apple because they claim it is too generic of a name and they feel Apple doesn't have the right to lay claim to the term.

Any secondary meaning or fame Apple has in 'App Store' is de facto secondary meaning that cannot convert the generic term 'app store' into a protectable trademark. Apple cannot block competitors from using a generic name. 'App store' is generic and therefore in the public domain and free for all competitors to use.

TiPb on ABC 15 talking Verizon iPhone

Right before the Verizon iPhone announcement this morning Rene jumped on ABC 15 Arizona with Kirk Yuhnke to preview the event. Of course we all know how it turned out now but wouldn't it have been funny if he'd been spectacularly wrong and Verizon ended up announcing another Kin instead?!
