Mundu IM: iPhone Edition, Chat Till Your Thumbs Bleed

Mundu has a long pedigree in the world of business-class mobile instant messaging software. I have used their Mobile Messenger client on PalmOS and Windows Mobile - it works like magic. So it didn't take long for their developers to show some iPhone love.

The company has announced a web based service that fully supports iPhone, via Safari of course (we've heard this line before). To access the web client simply point your iPhone to iphone.mundu.com. Login to any existing IM accounts (Yahoo, Gtalk, AIM, or Windows Live Messenger protocols supported), and text your way to repetitive stress injury.

The service is in beta, so don't look surprised when Safari chokes and drops you back to the homescreen.

Browser Cagematch: BlackBerry, Palm, Windows Mobile Vs. iPhone

Browser Cagematch: BlackBerry, Palm, Windows Mobile Vs. iPhone

InfoWorld pits three reigning Smartphones against the iPhone, comparing the browser experience of each platform. The verdict: Safari wins. Color me shocked.

This was a foregone conclusion. Mobile web browsers are simply crap compared to iPhone. I speak from experience as a Smartphone aficionado, having used every platform under the sun. None of the devices referenced in this article delivers even a remotely comparable experience to Safari.

iPhone includes a real web browser - a desktop web browser. Not the toy browsers you'll find on PalmOS, Blackberry or Windows Mobile, that render webpages through a paper shredder, producing a mangled stack of images and text.

Gizmodo Tests NES Emulator for iPhone, Verdict: Good But Not Great

Gizmodo Tests NES Emulator for iPhone, Verdict: Good But Not Great

Those crack heads at Gizmodo have taken a close look at the recently released NES emulator for iPhone, which promises to be a credible gaming environment...once it bakes a bit longer that is. Right now the project remains in the early stage of development and lacks even some rudimentary functionality - audio support being one.

Jesus Diaz calls it "A good start and a good promise of things to come." Oh really? But will it blend?

Rant: Apple...Fix Your F*$k!^G Mail App!

Rant: Apple...Fix Your F*$k!^G Mail App!

You know the old saying "When one door closes, another one opens"? Well in Apple's case the reverse sometimes proves to be true. Take for example the recently release iPhone update which, among other things, supposedly includes several bug fixes. Unfortunately it also introduces a few bugs as well, or at least that is the case with Mail.

Apple Integrates iPhone Support Into iLife '08 and .Mac

Apple Integrates iPhone Support Into iLife '08 and .Mac

In addition to the big iMac announcement, Apple also made a few lesser but greater iLife feature introductions that could have a big impact on iPhone users - those who use Macs anyway.

iMovie '08 now enables video to be encoded and formatted for iPhone's native screen resolution (HVGA). So now you can view your home videos on any iPhone, and share them with other iPhone users.

That's not all. iPhoto '08 offers a new .Mac Web Gallery service for uploading and sharing photos from a Mac, PC, or...iPhone! So iPhone users can now upload images captured from the phone right to a .Mac account. Pretty nifty, eh? Of course you'll have to pony $100 to purchase a .Mac account, and oh yes, a new iMac wouldn't hurt.

So goeth the upgrade treadmill.

Apple Rolls Out New iMacs, iLife Suite

Apple Rolls Out New iMacs, iLife Suite

Moments ago Steve Jobs introduced Apple's new iMac line to the press, ending months of rumors and speculation. The new iMac scarcely differs in overall form of its predecessor, but sports a completely new enclosure designed from aluminum and glass, which gives the appearance of a Cinema Display on steroids.

As expected, Apple has axed the previously available 17" entry-level model and replaced it with a 20" unit starting at $1,199. A beefier midrange model is available for $1,499, with a 24" gut buster rounding out the high end at $1,799.

Overall it's a good looking product with credible specs, but I have to say I wasn't knocked out of my socks upon seeing this new design, though it probably looks sexier in person. But then again I am a "Pro" customer so the iMac isn't targetted towards my demographic anyway.

An Apple A Day Won't Keep This Doctor Away

An Apple A Day Won't Keep This Doctor Away

A Des Moines Iowa physician, Peter V. Boesen, has filed a patent suit against Apple, claiming copyright infringement over iPhone's onscreen keyboard. Boesen holds a patent through a company called SP Technologies, who claims to have held a patent on iPhone's technology since 2004.

The irony in this story is that Mr. Boesen is currently sentenced to 51 months in a federal penitentiary on healthcare fraud charges. I guess Dr. Boesen never heard the phrase "Physician, heal thyself".

My prescription for the good Doctor is to take two cyanide pills and call me in the morning.

Windows Gets a File Browser for iPhone

Windows Gets a File Browser for iPhone

ModMyiPhone is living up to its name. A haxor developer nicknamed "Cranium" has created a Windows-based File browser that enables users to access and transfer files directly to the iPhone, in mounted fashion, bypassing the sync process.

Unfortunately this is a quick and dirty application created in visual basic express. There is no installer and you'll need .Net libs to make the magic happen. But if you do manage to fill these requirements, you'll be rewarded with a window to your iPhone that allows full drag and drop support, Right-click save as, Auto previews, file backups, etc. The usual fare.

Finally! A reason to use Windows! Nah.

iSectomy: Man Undergoes Vasectomy to Receive iPhone

This story is so disturbing it simply MUST be true. A reader sent me his personal story of what lengths (excuse the pun) he went through to get an 8GB iPhone. There are many things I would do for an insanely great Apple product...this is not among them.

W00tNess! New Parallels Desktop Beta Supports iPhone

Parallels is beta testing a new release of its desktop virtualization software that incorporates iPhone syncing with XP and Vista. Now you're probably asking yourself "Why the hell would I want to sync my iPhone with a Windows virtual machine on a Mac?" And honestly, other than perhaps the same reason my Doberman Pinscher licks his genitals, I can't think of one good reason. But it's nice to know the option is there should I choose to utilize it, right?

Among the added features in this release...
