CEOh-Snap!(ish): Palm's Colligan Prickly on Apple Patents

CEOh-Snap!(ish): Palm's Colligan Prickly on Apple Patents

Confession: it was a pretty boring call from Palm CEO Ed Colligan today. No Pre release date. No Pre feature update. No assault on Apple. Nothing and pretty much more nothing. We kinda wish Steve Jobs had crashed the event and gone all Christian Bale on Palm. At least that would have been interesting! Still, PreCentral caught this tidbit, for what it's worth:

MobileMe Scam Alert: Round 3

September was the last time we saw some malicious attacks on MobileMe subscribers. Well the scammers are at it again, trying to take advantage of Apple's MobileMe subscribers. A Gizmodo reader claims to have gotten the email shown above.

If you then click the fake "Login" button you will be directed to a website the scammers have set up -- to look like Apple's web site -- asking for your credit card information. It is safe to say, delete this email if you happen to find it in your inbox.

The Great iPhone Sync Debate: Desktop, Laptop, or Cloud?

The Great iPhone Sync Debate: Desktop, Laptop, or Cloud?

For the last few months I've been conducting an experiment, trying to figure out whether it better suited my needs to sync my iPhone 3G to my desktop computer, to my laptop, or to embrace the (potential) future and try to sync only over-the-air with the cloud (online services and storage).

First, a little about the contenders.

  • My MacBook is purposefully kept light. Aside from whatever temporary I'm working on at the time, it has almost nothing on it, including no media unless I'm actively watching it. It's speed on-the-go with limited capacity.
  • My iMac is heavy duty and also serves as my media machine. It's connected on one end to a Drobo and serves an Apple TV in the living room on the other. It's pure power and content, but absolutely no portability.
  • My cloud is, well, the cloud -- everything I keep on my MobileMe, iDisk and Apple keeps ready for me on their massive iTunes servers.

A month with each of them (Round Robin interuptus notwithstanding) and what were my results? Which have I stuck with (for now)? Read on to find out!

xGPS Brings Turn-by-Turn Directions to iPhone Via Jailbreak

So you've been on the fence about Jailbreaking recently, maybe this is enough to sway you? Once again, a 3rd party developer has come through for all of us and has delivered a working turn-by-turn GPS solution!

xGPS uses Google Maps and add it's own real-time navigation readout and a voice. Seriously, how hard could this have been for Google or Apple to add for us? Another nice feature is the ability to download maps ahead of time. So that means even first generation iPhone users can get in on some turn-by-turn action.

China Mobile and Apple Rumble over App Store

China Mobile and Apple Rumble over App Store

Aiya! There's still no iPhone officially available in the world's most populous country, the People's Republic of China. Sure, Apple actually sells unlocked iPhones in Hong Kong and Taiwan in an attempt to lure the most affluent Chinese customers to their platform -- and lets not forget the monstrous iPhone 2G black market -- but absent homegrown carrier subsidies and support, it will never attain most-favored device status.

Is There a Market (Again!) for the iPhone 2G?

Is There a Market (Again!) for the iPhone 2G?

Before WWDC in June of 2008, when Apple announced the iPhone 3G, supplies of the original iPhone (now called 2G) began to dry up. Apple killed the iPhone 2G rather than allow two versions of the device to be on the market at the same time.

Gizmodo: Another Next Gen iPhone Concept -- MacBook Air Inspired

Gizmodo: Another Next Gen iPhone Concept -- MacBook Air Inspired

We should start a new "Gizmodo iPhone Concept Art" category, because it seems like Jesus Diaz is throwing up one of these a week, each equal parts smart and silly in their own way. This week's version doesn't light my design regions on fire, but the idea of built in video iChat, compatible with desktops -- even with the Google Maps/CoreLocation chrome tossed in -- is very much "me want".

What do you think? I love the MacBook Air look, but in an iPhone? And is Mobile iChat definitely a must-drool feature?

Apple: "Don't Use Multi-Touch on Android!" Google: "Okay..."

We've heard whispers relating to this one for a while, but now VentureBeat (via MacRumors) is putting text-to-screen about it:

Apple, which of course makes the signature multi-touch mobile device, the iPhone, apparently asked Google not to implement it, and Google agreed, an Android team member tells us.
