Rumor: Jobs Fires Ex-Microsofty For MobileMe Fiasco?

Friend-of-a-friend-of-a-former-Apple-employee (no names!) has just fed an awfully convenient (and admittedly unsubstantiated) rumor to the mill: MobileMe was run by Rob Schoeben, VP of Applications Marketing (including Pro Apps, iWork, and iLife) at Apple, who was a former Microsoft executive and who brought in fellow former Microsofties as well. Blogger Chuq Von Rospach intimates that Schoeben's head may well now decorate, pike-top, Steve Jobs' figurative wall outside 1 Infinite Loop. In more realistic terms:

Review: Belkin Mini Surge Protector with USB Charger

Review: Belkin Mini Surge Protector with USB Charger

Imagine this scenario: You’re in a hotel room and you bring your iPhone, Macbook, External Hard Drive, Camera, and another iPod cause you’re nasty..but they’re all in need of a charge. You run and send a search team for the nearest available outlet, to your utter dismay it only provides two outputs. You reason you can live without a couple of those items but then you can’t fit two clunky chargers at once. You’re left with just charging one device.

We’ve all run into hotel rooms that just don’t seem to have enough power outlets. With the Belkin Mini Surge Protector with USB that problem is pretty much solved. How does it perform?

Read on for the rest of the review!

State of the Apps: Frank on App Store Love/Hate

State of the Apps: Frank on App Store Love/Hate

Panic makes killer Mac apps. I use Coda daily, and Cabal Sasser designs UI the way they're meant to be designed. Likewise, Steven Frank's recent blog post on the double-edged sword that is Apple's App Store is one of the best descriptions I've seen on the subject from a developers point of view:

Pwnage Ppdate, er Update.

We have an update from iphone-dev that falls in the good news / not-so-good news category. The not-so-good is that they're still hard at work on figuring out how to unlock the baseband radio, but there's no ETA on when or (here's the bad part) whether it's going to happen.

Blog vs. Blog: Thurrott/Dilger MobileMe Pundit-palooza!

Blog vs. Blog: Thurrott/Dilger MobileMe Pundit-palooza!

What's better than a couple of well versed, well argued technologists presenting deeply reasoned and sharply insightful, fundamentally different but equally challenging, views on a critical topic? Well... nothing. They're just hard to find given the intertube collective's penchant for rewarding punditry and link baiting. Sometimes, however, we're lucky enough to find a mix of both knowledge and provocation.

Cases in point: here were have noted Windows Super-Siter, Paul Thurrott, and accomplished Roughly-Drafted Apple Insider Prince McLean each presenting their own unique, multi-part perspectives on MobileMe.

Ready for the blow-by-blow? Continued after the break!

This Week in Smartphone Schadenfreude, August 16th Edition

Not evil twin to theiPhoneBlog.com Week in Review, not an invasion by Fake Steve, This Week in Smart Phone Schadenfreude brings you all the feel-better news you need about the smartphone world outside Apple’s current media dominator.

Join us as we mock review the big news from last week at our sister sites. Everybody loves sibling rivalry!

This week: All Bold all the time, spy pics, HTC gets red, and happy five-oh!

iPhone 2.1 Beta 4 Seeded Without Push Notification !?

iPhone 2.1 Beta 4 Seeded Without Push Notification !?

So the news isn't that iPhone 2.1 Beta 4 has been seeded to developers, no that's expected. With a (hopeful) September release, iPhone 2.1 should be receiving its finishing touches. What the news is, is that the much ballyhooed feature of push notification is missing. As in gone. Not there. Removed. iPhone 2.1 Beta 4 removes the push notification feature from the test version.

GroupWise Synchronization for iPhone is here- tell your IT department!

The day I thought would never come, arrived much sooner than expected! NotifyLink, a provider of server-side synchronization software for mobile devices, has just announced the availability of NotifyLink for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Of course, to make use of this technology, your organization has to have the NotifyLink Server.

There is a great support page which lays out how you setup your account (done though the Exchange option when adding an email account). There are pictures walking you though setting your email to configuring and accepting meeting invitations to using the Global Address Book for looking up your organizations contacts!

A quick summary, after the break!

Shiny Apple Logo Mod + Is the iPhone a Blade Runner Replicant?!

Shiny Apple Logo Mod + Is the iPhone a Blade Runner Replicant?!

We know Apple VP of Design, Jonathan Ive loves him some Braun, but who knew he also drew inspiration from Ford? Harrison Ford, that is. Norwegian site Design4Dough spotted the 1982-era Blade Runner iPhone, wall-mount edition:

The likeness is exceptional. The metallic outline, the pictogram-matrix-touchscreen, the black chassie and the designated home-button area at the bottom.

Next up: Take our chrome, it's too bland; modify our Apple brand. We don't care, it's shiny; Russian mod for iPhone 2G! (With apologies to Joss Whedon and our readers!) Says iPhone Alley:

The device was the handywork of the people at GPDA.ru. The mod involves simply removing the chrome logo and replacing it with a glowy one. This video was created of one of a modded device in action.

(Thanks to "replicant browncoat" for the tips!)
