iPhone 3GS Doesn't Support HSUPA for High Speed 3G Upload

Macworld is reporting that while the iPhone 3GS chipset does indeed support the new (for North America!) HSPDA download speed of 7.2 Mbps, Apple didn't see fit to equip it with the matching HSUPA upload speed of 1.4/1.9 Mbps.

Will Apple's iPhone Surpass Nokia by 2012?

Matt Miller over at our sibling site, NokiaExperts, takes issue with a prediction that Nokia will drop to 20% while Apple and the iPhone soar to 35% worldwide market share by 2012:

However, as more Android devices roll out, Windows Mobile 7 shows up in force, RIM keeps chipping away with the BlackBerry OS, and Palm struggles to find itself with WebOS I doubt Apple will pass up Nokia.

Matt also points out that Symbian Foundation could replace the ailing S60 by then as well, making the situation even more of an unknown.

iPhone 3.0 Still Causing Wi-Fi Problems?

Back when iPhone 3.0 launched, we heard Wi-Fi was giving problems to some -- primarily iPod touch -- users. Various network resets or OS restores seem to have quieted that down, but now TUAW is reporting that the newly launched iPhone 3GS might be suffering Wi-Fi troubles as well:

Wall Street Journal Profiles Hackers Behind the iPhone Jailbreak

The Wall Street Journal, yanking the curtain away from the wizards behind the iPhone jailbreaking scene, reveals a group of highly precocious teens, twenties, and thirty-somethings.

Now, if you're the kind of personal who gets disappointed when they find out Hulk Hogan's real name, prepare yourself for the unmasking of Chronic and Dev Team members -- it's equally less-than-cool.

Amazon, citing new provisions of their API/data terms of use, informed Delicious Library developer Wil Shipley that if he didn't immediately remove Delicious Library for iPhone from the iTunes App Store, they'd remove his ability to use Amazon APIs and data from all of his products, including the long-standing Delicious Library for Mac.

TUAW quotes the relevant new passage:
