Verizon and Sprint iPhone 4S and the limitations of CDMA

iPhone 4S is the first iPhone to have both Verizon and Sprint CDMA versions available alongside the AT&T GSM version. CDMA is famous for its rock solid reliability and call quality and now that iPhone 4S is a world phone, it can even roam on international GSM network. However, CDMA brings with it some downsides as well, including lack of simultaneous voice and data over 3G, subtle quirks to SMS, and greatly reduced conference call options.

None of these are unique to iPhone 4S on Verizon or Sprint, but they're something to keep in mind if you're thinking of switching to one of those networks now that they have iPhone 4S.

So here's the deal.

Next generation Apple TV 3 spotted in iOS 5 code?

Next generation Apple TV 3 spotted in iOS 5 code?

Mark Gurman from 9to5Mac has spotted something interesting deep inside the iOS 5 file system -- code references to a next generation Apple TV 3,1. Given Apple's internal naming conventions, a move the current Apple TV 2,1 to an Apple TV 3,1 should signify a major upgrade, which could lend credence to rumors of a Apple A5 on the horizon, and perhaps even the 1080p video muscle that comes with it.

Apple sells out of iPhone 4S pre-orders in less than 24 hours

iPhone 4S pre-orders went live less than 24 hrs ago in the US and Apple's online store is already showing it as sold out, with delivery times now estimated at 1-2 weeks.

iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, or iPhone 3GS: Which should you get?

iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, or iPhone 3GS: Which should you get?

Maybe you've decided to get an iPhone but you're still not entirely sold on the $199+ iPhone 4S. Maybe the $99 iPhone 4 or free-on-contract iPhone 3GS seem like cheaper options? Fair enough. That's why Apple currently has 3 iPhone models on the market, with 3 different levels of specs, and at 3 price points.

Over the lifetime of a contract, you'll be paying a couple thousand dollars, so it's important to run the math on this and see what suits you best. Let's do that now.

Steve Jobs: Voice of the tech generation

The director of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Glenn D. Lowry, has written and opinion piece on CNN about how Steve Jobs was the lynchpin of our tech generation, a way to define ourselves much like Bob Dylan or the Beatles helped define Jobs' own generation. Lowry explained how important efficiency and art were to Jobs' products, and how they allow us to identify with one another.

Jobs realized that the digital generation not only wanted access to an endless array of information and entertainment, it wanted it delivered in a way that projected the user's sense of self; that personal style mattered as much as function.
