AT&T is Not Developing Tethering Feature for iPhone. Sorry Boys and Girls

AT&T is Not Developing Tethering Feature for iPhone. Sorry Boys and Girls

Yes, it seems The Boy Genius Report jumped the shark by misinterpreting some cryptically worded internal memo from AT&T as proof positive the company would soon be rolling out a tethering feature (and plan) for iPhone. Sadly, or not, it is not to be. Nope turns out that memo described nothing more the process of tethering iPhone to iTunes. Ironically that document was intended to clear up customer confusion and had precisely opposite effect. AT&T - Raising the bar.

ZiPhone (Finally) Jailbreaks iPhone with a GUI

ZiPhone (Finally) Jailbreaks iPhone with a GUI

Two good pieces of good news on this cold Valentine's Day Morning. First, the SDK is still on track to be released this month despite earlier rumors it could be delayed, according to tuaw. Apparently Apple employees are working triple overtime so we can love our iPhones just a little more. Our advice: take tonight off, kids, and love the one you haven't been with just a little more since you've been putting in so many hours.

Old Windows Geek Falls in Love With iPhone, But Still Has Hots for Windows Mobile

Old Windows Geek Falls in Love With iPhone, But Still Has Hots for Windows Mobile

InfoWorld's Peter Bruzzese is the kind of IT guy who's old enough to have lived through every major paradigm shift in technology. When not plodding along at his Windows workstation, surrounded by a sea of blade servers, he's regaling colleagues and friends with his adventures back in the heady days of DOS computers and UNIX mainframes. The very mention of OS/2 gets him misty eyed, and if you see him hunched over a book about Fortran, well... just leave him be.

So when the old Windows warhorse suddenly took a shine to iPhone, people began wondering... and worrying. Somehow this grizzled old Windows veteran became an iPhone lover, wildly exploring its features like a five year-old in a McDonald's playland, without the greasy fingerprints and spilled drinks.

G'day Mate: iPhone Coming to the Land Down Under

G'day Mate: iPhone Coming to the Land Down Under

Alright, you Aussies. Drop your didgeridoos and Kangaroos and get down from your gum trees, because iPhone is coming to your bush. What's that you ask? Is Kent a few Kangaroos loose in the top paddock? Nope, and I haven't been smoking any strange Aboriginal tobacco either.

T-Mobile says it will begin rolling out iPhones to customers sometime in the first half of this year, give or take. Abso-bloody-lutely they will, so start saving your zacks now. Now stop questioning my sanity unless you want to start a barney. Got it? Ta!

Memo to Palm: Please Stop Sucking. You're Making Everyone Else Look Good

Memo to Palm: Please Stop Sucking. You're Making Everyone Else Look Good

First let me say that I am not one to laugh at someone else's misfortune. Wait, who am I kidding? Of course I am. So it comes with certain self indulgence that I take this opportunity to point to a study that ranks Palm dead last in customer satisfaction among handset makers. So sad. But sadder still that a Palm employee posted a rebuttal in the comments of that story and cited a different study, commissioned by Palm no less, to dispute these negative results. Which is the equivalent of saying "No, really I am wonderful, just ask my Mom, she'll tell you."

Cheer up, Palm. When it comes to product stagnation and obsolete technology, you're still number one in my book.

Adobe Flash Support Coming to iPhone, Ending YouTube Envy

Adobe Flash Support Coming to iPhone, Ending YouTube Envy

What feature request has been on the lips of every iPhone user since the idolized gadget first came galloping out the gate? I'll give you a hint, it starts with the letter "F", and is the same thing your inebriated Uncle Frank does at family get togethers after knocking back one too many martinis. Of course, I'm talking about Flash.

GearLive claims that Apple will be announcing Adobe Flash for WebKit (aka mobile Safari). There have been rumors to this effect for some time, but with the blessed arrival of the much anticipated SDK now only days away, this seems plausible. Still, I wouldn't start bookmarking YouTube.com on your iPhone just yet. Let's wait for Apple make this rumor a reality.

Tip: Fix your Tags in iTunes

Tip: Fix your Tags in iTunes

Your iPhone does a better job displaying album and and sorting through all your music than any other device on the planet, past and present. However all that sweet, sweet music on that sweet, sweet interface doesn't do you much good if you don't know what exactly it is you're looking for. We've all had it happen: a friend makes us a mix CD and iTunes can't figure out what's what. Which "Track 2" was that again? Hassle.

Apple Making Games for the iPhone?

Apple Making Games for the iPhone?

What does the iPhone lack? Besides the obvious -- 3G, Office Doc editing, the ability to actually make julienne fries -- what the iPhone lacks is games. Real, on-board games. Some of this pain is mitigated by the fact that you can get web-based games (including some great iPhone games by our very own forum member cmaier). Still, though, do you know what the most popular video game on the planet is?

Flash Support Coming to iPhone?

Flash Support Coming to iPhone?

So says Gear Live, who claims "reliable sources" tell them that it should be coming "very soon." What about those pesky technical issues that were supposedly keeping us from enjoying embedded YouTube Videos (without the iPhone's YouTube app) and amusing Homestar Runner games directly on the iPhone? Supposedly that was all a big lie, the real issue was on the business side.

Maybe this end-of-February mystery event will be about more than just the SDK?

iPhone Marketshare Climbing Fast

We're looking at just over 6 months of sales and the iPhone is rocking the marketshare in the Smartphone category like you wouldn't believe. According to Canalys (whose numbers we've admittedly doubted before, but these results look pretty solid), the iPhone has reached 28% marketshare among Smartphones in the US and 7% worldwide. That puts it at #2 in the US and #3 worldwide. They're even ahead of Motorola.
