iPhone Protest Smash Puny Rogers! $30 for 6GB Special Promo!

I shouldn't blog this. It'll only make the lines longer. But, dagnabit, it's just too... well... not unlimited good... but better and somewhat less cr@ppy!

Effective July 11, and as a limited time promotional offer for customers who activate by August 31 on a three year contract, a data-only offering of 6GB of data for $30 per month is being made available that can be added to any in-market voice plan. For example, with 6GB of data, iPhone 3G users can visit 35,952 web pages, or send and receive 157,286 emails, or watch 6,292 minutes of YouTube videos each and every month.

It's a start!

Attack of the iClones Blog vs. Blog Edition: Crackberry/Boy Genius Haptic Thunder NERDFIGHT!

Attack of the iClones Blog vs. Blog Edition: Crackberry/Boy Genius Haptic Thunder NERDFIGHT!

Sure, the iPhone 3G launch is tomorrow. Consider this an amuse bouche. Or the opposite of that, an annoy bouche. Whatever. Something salty to make Friday taste all the more sweet!

The subject of today's battle royal? Nope, not iPhone vs. Blackberry. That's old. This time it's Blackberry vs. Blackberry, Blog vs. Blog, over the iClone to end all iClones: the touchscreen Blackberry Thunder!

Says our sister site Crackberry.com, 10th degree Blackberry belts and reigning world champions:

Touchscreen BlackBerry Thunder Keyboard To Utilize Haptic Technology... AMAZING Implementation! [...] Leave it to RIM to CRACK the touchscreen keyboard nut.

Says Boy Genius Report, craftiest of all mobile blogsphere Ninja:

The keyboard is incredibly annoying to type on, and the screen actually shows ripples even when pressed ever-so-lightly. [...] Most of the people who have handled it thinks it’s a joke.

Read on for round 2!

iPhone 3G: 2 Days and Counting Down to App Store!

14

iPhone 3G: 2 Days and Counting Down to App Store!

This is it. We're in the home stretch. Golden goal, all or nothing, and Steve Jobs kicking it high and to the side. In 2 days we find out if Apple gets the world cup, the two-peat for smartphone (even gadget) championship, or if they send it flying over the post with their mostly evolutionary, not so much revolutionary, next generation handset.

Saturday we mentioned one big change: the fast 3G data chip. Sunday it was GPS. Monday we tackled the 2.0 Firmware update. Tuesday we detailed the rebirth of .Mac: MobileMe. Today we're looking at the mother load, App Store.

Why should you want Apps? Of course you want Apps, read on to find out just how much!

iPhone Murder: ZOMG No! Take Dieter Instead!

7

iPhone Murder: ZOMG No! Take Dieter Instead!

Cheesy over-branding aside, you gotta be kidding me. That iPhone was clearly drugged first, then tied up. Try that with a fresh, free iPhone, and it would've dodged those we-know-what-they're-overcompensating-for rifle bullets with Matrix-like moves that would have had Neo saying "Whoa!" Then it would be BOOM! Silver-bezel roshambo kick, faux-"hunter" goes down, and POW! multi-touch ground-and-pound! (The iPhone don't need no stinkin' guns!)

Remember, kids: Guns can't kill iPhones. But vidtards with guns can kill our childlike sense of wonder.

(No iPhones -- or iPhone Blog Editors -- were harmed in the typing of the post)

iPhone 3G International Roundup! USA, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Italy, Portugal!

iPhone 3G International Roundup! USA, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Italy, Portugal!

WOW! iPhone plans and prices are dropping faster than Rogers stock these days. With a 22 country launch on Friday (and a few days later in France -- vive la difference, eh?), some with multiple co-exclusive carriers, each with different tiers of service (from cheap, all-you-can-eat unlimited to tiny $$$ per byte ultra-rip-offs) it's a lot to keep track of -- but we're still going to try!

Read on for the good, the bad, and a lot of ugly!

Headset Review: The Jawbone 2 Bluetooth Headset

Headset Review: The Jawbone 2 Bluetooth Headset

Just off of the reviewing the original Jawbone bluetooth headset comes its sequel: The Jawbone...2. This headset takes what made the original so great and takes it to the next level in terms of size. Does this headset live up to its older brother? Or will its smaller size make it less competitive? What makes this bluetooth headset so great its the noise canceling technology; it is truly remarkable. Let's start off with the basics though, shall we?

iPhone 3G in in the Wild and Un-boxed... in Portugal?!

Not so fast New Zealand, turns out some NDA/do-not-open violating Portuguese iPhone-luster got his or her hands on the first iPhone 3G! (outside of Steve Jobs and Walt Mossberg, 'natch!) Apple Store insider? Carrier higher-up? Who knows -- and who cares -- we just want the pics! (Actually, we just want the iPhone 3G ourselves!

Check out the photos via the read link, if the Portuguese interwebs don't come crashing to their knees under the load...

Good Idea: Contact Coverflow

Good Idea: Contact Coverflow

Among the features we'd hoped to see in iPhone 2.0 that we didn't: Photo Speed Dial. Sure, there's a nasty hack to get photo speed dial by adding web shortcuts to your homescreen, but it's not very convenient and the photos are very small. TechAU managed to have one of those moment where they think of something that we all should have: Contact Coverflow. We like it because, well, the Coverflow framework is already on the iPhone (you've seen it in the iPod app) and can be utilized by other jailbroken apps -- as witnessed in the jailbreak app AppFlow.

iPhone 3G: 3 Days and Counting Down to MobileMe!

iPhone 3G: 3 Days and Counting Down to MobileMe!

This is it. We're in the home stretch. Games in overtime, the shot clock is almost done, and Steve Jobs is soaring from mid-court looking for the slam dunk. In 3 days we find out if Apple brings down the net, the two-peat for smartphone (even gadget) championship, or if they bounce it off the rim (pun sorta intended) with their mostly evolutionary, not so much revolutionary, next generation handset.

Saturday we mentioned one big change: the fast 3G data chip. Sunday it was GPS. Monday we tackled the 2.0 Firmware update. Today we're looking at the rebirth of .Mac: MobileMe.

Note: .Mac users have been able to send to username@me.com for a few days already, and as of yesterday, July 7, could both send and receive using me.com. (Just tried it out and it works!)

Now word comes that, to accommodate New Zealand, which due to their time zone gets the iPhone 3G way before anyone else, Apple has announced that it's really not 3 days to MobileMe -- just one! That's right, MobileMe goes live on Wednesday, July 9 between 6pm and 12am PST. Mark your calendars, then get ready to "push" sync them!

Why should you want to? Read on after the break!

iPhone 3G: 4 Days and Counting Down to Firmware 2.0!

This is it. We're in the home stretch. 5th round, time's almost up, and Steve Jobs is slapping on the arm bar. In 4 days we find out if Apple scores the submission, the two-peat for smartphone (even gadget) undisputed heavyweight title, or if they gas out with their mostly evolutionary, not so much revolutionary, next generation handset.

Saturday we mentioned one big change: the fast 3G data chip. Yesterday it was GPS. Today we're tackling the 2.0 Firmware update.

What is this and why should you want it? Read on after the break!
