Steve Jobs to iPhone Users: "No Flash for You!"

Steve Jobs to iPhone Users: "No Flash for You!"

So much for native Flash support in iPhone. In an interview yesterday, Steve Jobs told reporters that Adobe's mobile Flash player "isn't good enough" for iPhone, shunning its possible inclusion in the product. He went on to make an oddly elusive and interesting comment, saying "There's this missing product in the middle,", hinting that Apple may have said "missing" product in development. What could it be? It won't be Silverlight, that much is certain.

iPhone vs Blackberry

iPhone vs Blackberry

Yankees vs Red Sox. Coke vs Pepsi. Obama vs Hilary.

Apple vs RIM?

Are we walking down a path that will lead to a no-holds-barred smackdown between smartphone giant RIM and newcomer Apple? Chris Ullrich over at TUAW certainly thinks so. He recently pitted the iPhone against the Curve and comes away with a conclusion not so much different from our good friend Mike Overbo.

The iPhone started life as a "Safari Pad"?

The New York Times is reporting that the iPhone started its life out as a "Safari Pad". An Internet tablet if you will. Once Steve Jobs saw it, he used his panache and morphed it into an iPhone. The author also goes on to say that when he spoke to Steve Jobs at the recent MacWorld in January, he asked if there would be a larger form-factor iPod touch device. Steve Jobs replied,

3G Rumor-mill: Vid Cap, HD Streaming, Real-Time GPS, Turn Lead to Gold!

3G Rumor-mill: Vid Cap, HD Streaming, Real-Time GPS, Turn Lead to Gold!

Monday was analyst prediction day, as RBC Capital analyst Mike Abramsky and Banc of American analyst Scott Craig separately provided the following guestimates on Apple's next gen iPhone:

Abramsky predicts him some amped up CPU, more memory, and the faster 3G speeds that allow for higher def (HD?) video, voice capture, streaming HD video, real-time GPS, and other Trekkie goodness. All this would, coupled with a mid-2008 release, would let Apple blow past 10 million, and hit a potential 11 million unites sold by year end.

Peering into the iPhone SDK Crystal Ball

Peering into the iPhone SDK Crystal Ball

Thursday brings the SDK. You know, the one that needs no other identifier. The one that the entire tech-verse has been chomping at the bit for since roughly 0.001 seconds after Steve Jobs slipped the iPhone from his pocket at Macworld 2007.

But that’s all we know: SDK Event March 6th.

We don’t know whether the SDK will be ready to code that very same day, who’ll be given access to it, how they’ll test for it, what type of approval process Apple will require, how apps will be distributed, how they’ll be priced, and most importantly for the end user: whether or not “OMG teh iPhone can has WoW!!11”

However, that doesn’t stop us from guessing!

O2 Ireland CEO "Defends" Lack of Data, Features

As highlighted earlier, when O2 launches the iPhone on March 14, it will be with only a wee 1GB of data (vs. unlimited in other territories) and nay visual voicemail (standard elsewhere -- indeed cited as a rationale for carrier cooperation read: lock-in).

Web App Review: Bloglines

Web App Review: Bloglines

Reading my news and RSS feeds on the go is important to me. Most people I know use Google Reader, and it is a fantastic desktop web application. However, I find the mobile version really lacking in features and functionality; this is where Bloglines (http://i.bloglines.com) comes in.

Bloglines really takes advantage of Apple's HIG's and gives a very integrated environment for your news. Keep in mind that this version of Bloglines is is still in beta...

(Ed Note - We've already welcomed Rene Ritchie to the fold, now we welcome Chad Garrett! Chad will be bringing us a software review each week -- with any luck at all he'll be able to move to reviews of real, honest-to-god, Apple-approved native applications very soon! Welcome Chad!)
