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:

David Byrne Interview with Thom Yorke

Wired has an excellent multimedia interview with Thom Yorke, the singer in Radiohead. They cover a vast array of topics from the changing face of the record industry to Radiohead's experiment with In Rainbows, their recent album that they released online. It's a fine interview, well worth your ears and eyeballs.

Domo Arigato NTT Docomo

Domo Arigato NTT Docomo

Jobs and other Cupertino functionaries have apparently been flying to and fro in the hopes of securing a carrier for the iPhone in Japan. It sounds like NTT DoCoMo is their first choice, which is interesting as they don't really support a 2.5G network -- NTT DoCoMo's network is pretty much all 3G, so for the iPhone to work on their network, it would have to be 3G. Also apparently in the running is Japan's #3 carrier SoftBank Mobile, who also lacks a 2.5G network.

Wired's iPhone Clones

Wired's iPhone Clones

Wired has a quick look at some iPhone clones. Clones is probably an unfair statement, since some of these phones are given the clone moniker just by the fact that they share a similar form factor. They award black turtlenecks to each of the six phones based on how well they compete with the iPhone as a clone based on a weird array of subjective criteria that shifts with each clone.

*Rolls Dice*: 25% and #2 in North America

*Rolls Dice*: 25% and #2 in North America

It's true, I did find the linkbait. Whatever the charts mean, the iPhone is selling well in North America. Whether or not it's beating Windows Mobile (which it appears to be) or behind the BlackBerry (which it appears to be), the relevant bit is this: it's a close race, it's anyone's game, and the iPhone is doing spectacularly given the amount of time it has been available.

iPhone SIM Hack?

iPhone SIM Hack?

Wow. Just... wow. It's a mobilewhack day, apparently. They found this video of a person demoing a SonicSIM card 1.0, which shows a person doing some SIM hackery on a jailbroken iPhone. Their method involves cutting the gold parts of your normal SIM card and putting them into a different shell which you then put into your iPhone. It may or may not be legitimate, I don't really know and can't really tell. Here's why:

iPhone Home Speaker Dock

iPhone Home Speaker Dock

This is a nice speaker dock system. It was designed by a team of folks that includes former Apple design guru Robert Brunner, who was around during the Newton years. It's a nice-looking piece of kit. There's no price yet, as this is a mockup or prototype of some sort. If they make it affordable it will sell like hotcakes. It's apparently being unveiled at CES in a few weeks.

Duh: Kids Want iPhone

According to the answers to questions posed of 1175 people surveyed by Peanut Labs, a bunch of 'Generation Y' kids are hot to trot for the iPhone action. The most popular mobile on the holiday present list is the iPhone, and Apple is on the list of top brands (which were Apple, HP, Nintendo, and Amazon). Another interesting nugget is that those kids figured to spend $300 on gadgets this holiday season.

N95 to iPhone Comparison

Here's a quick N95 vs. iPhone video feature showdown. As you can see above, Dieter of WMExperts confirms he's begun using the Nokia N95 as the little mini-extension to the Smartphone Round Robin. There were a lot of calls for us to try something with Symbian. I hope we give it a full turn the next time around.

Garage Band Update Brings Ringtones

Garage Band Update Brings Ringtones

Some of the best news that I'll hear all day. If you're using the latest version of iLife and apply the GarageBand update (version 4.1.1), you get the ability to create and edit custom ringtones. They've posted up a set of instructions over at apple.com for anyone to peruse. The blurb you see in Software Update is terse but to the point:

iPhone <3 Exchange?

iPhone <3 Exchange?

With the original iPod, sales didn't take off until the iPod was made compatible with Windows. If you believe the stats from the polls from AppleInsider, sales for the iPhone won't take off until it's compatible with Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft's popular groupware server for small and medium businesses. And lo! Apple has posted a job listing for someone capable of adding Outlook and Exchange functionality to the iPhone.

Hacked Emulator Apps Roundup

There are a bunch of nice 3rd party apps cropping up for hacked iPhones. I haven't been posting them individually since I'm not sure who out here really has use for a SCUMM or AGI interpreter, but I can hide morsels like that inside of bigger articles. I love seeing hacked apps come through that really deliver on the gaming promise of the iPhone.
