Forums are back up!

Update: Huzzah and hooray! Chat away!

All of our sister sites have put up the word so we may as well too -- our forums have crashed just a tiny bit but we're working hard to bring them back up. In the meantime, I'll note that the amount of iPhone news to be had here at CES amounts to precisely bupkiss, and I've been looking. Like the Mac Pro announcement, I think this bodes well for iPhone news at Macworld next week!

Phone different at CES

Phone different at CES

While the big news is obviously going to be at MacWorld next week, this week we're at the Consumer Electronics Show. There probably won't be a ton of iPhone news, so you might only see sporadic updates in the next few days. After that, though BAM.

In the spirit of quietness, go check out Whisper app for your iPhone (if you're the jailbreaking sort). You whisper a secret into the iPhone and it get uploaded to a server anonymously. You can then listen to the secrets of others. Think of it as PostSecret for the iPhone. :)

Former Exec Rubenstein Wanted a Physical Keyboard on the iPhone

Former Exec Rubenstein Wanted a Physical Keyboard on the iPhone

Sramana Mitra has an interesting post up comparing Apple to Palm. Actually, she's been on a tear lately when it comes to Palm and how they've dropped the corporate management ball. She scored a comprehensive interview with former Palm Executive Eric Benhamou, which reads very nicely but is also a clear example of how the problems Palm has now are the direct result of their earlier problems. Basically they followed the exact opposite trajectory that Apple did in nearly the same time period (basically).

Anyway, back to the intersection of the two companies. Mitra writes:

MacWorld (iPhone) Predictions

MacWorld (iPhone) Predictions

The Macworld Expo is coming in a little over a week and I'm wondering what it will bring for iPhone users. Macworld will obviously be focusing primarily on, er, Macs, but I'm expecting that there will be iPhone news too. Expecting it enough that, yes, Phone different will be there reporting on the events!

In any case, there's a thread up in our forums started by rener asking about what's coming and it seems like a fun thing to think about on a Friday. I won't touch the Mac rumors (except to say I want the subnotebook), but here's my shot at what I expect iPhone-wise:

Order Coffee from your iPhone (someday)

Order Coffee from your iPhone (someday)

Here comes the synergy. Buying songs off the iTunes WiFi store while you're at Starbucks is great and all - but it turns out that most people don't go to Starbucks so they can freely surf iTunes' selections. Instead, Apple has figured out that people go to Starbucks to buy coffee and coffee-flavored beverages (let's face it, calling that mocha-double-frappa-whozit "coffee" is an insult to coffee and whozits). To that end, Apple has cagily filed a patent to allow you to order your coffee without having to actually talk to a human. Forbes describes it best:

NTT DoCoMo and Apple Hold Hands but Won't Confirm Wedding Plans

NTT DoCoMo and Apple Hold Hands but Won't Confirm Wedding Plans

iPhone may soon come to the land of the rising sun. Word on the street is that NTT DoCoMo head honcho, Masao Nakamura, has been seen in public holding hands with a certain American wearing faded denim jeans and black mock turtleneck sweater. He confirms today that his company is actively engaged in talks with Apple, but shrugged off questions concerning terms or product release dates.

I'll lay you odds that Apple won't swindle the same lucrative revenue sharing margins out of NTT that they've managed to extract from other wireless carriers, like our very own AT&T. And unless this agreement concerns the upcoming 3G model, iPhone has zero chance of success in Japan, which is a much more tech savvy market that doesn't look kindly on non-HSDPA phones.

Sell Your Not-iPhone

Sell Your Not-iPhone

If you bought an iPhone, odds are pretty decent that you replaced another cell phone with it. Odds are also decent that you kept the iPhone over the other cell phone. Maybe you did, maybe you didn't. Well, as it turns out, you can get a real-time price quote for your old cell phone. Just type in whatever cell phone you want to recycle at the website Second Rotation, describe the condition. If they're interested and you like the price, they'll send you a prepaid DHL label. Voila!

Consumer Reports Likes iPhone Too

Consumer Reports Likes iPhone Too

The iPhone showed up at #1 on Consumer Reports' rating of all Smartphones. It's a slim margin of victory, but it's a margin nonetheless. They list it as the only chosen phone in the media category, and list the T-Mobile Wing, the Palm Treo 755p, and the Moto Q9m for office-type uses. For compact smartphones, they advise the Pearl and Centro. (via electronista)

PC World on Disappointment List

PC World on Disappointment List

The iPhone is on PC World's "15 Biggest Tech Disappointments of 2007" list. From the brouhaha I've been reading, you'd think that they think the iPhone is a piece of junk. Nothing could be farther from the truth -- they think it's "wildly innovative." What they're largely griping about is how Apple has handled the iPhone to this point:
