Verizon Attacks iPhone and AT&T... with Toys, Elves, and Xmas Blues?!

Verizon Attacks iPhone and AT&T... with Toys, Elves, and Xmas Blues?!

We have to admit, Verizon's latest, Xmas-themed iPhone and AT&T attack ads bring the funny. Continuing the savvy "map for that" (rather than silly DroidDoes), the first shows the land of misfit toys where an iPhone-looking device is condemned for its poor AT&T 3G coverage.

After the break, we have elves giving Verizon devices, with robust 3G coverage, to nice children and an iPhone with poor AT&T coverage to the naughty. And, lastly, a father has a blue Xmas when his iPhone can't reach his family (though a Verizon present awaits him when he finally gets home).

Attacking the iPhone on it's major front-facing weakness, much-hyped consumer dissatisfaction with AT&T's network is the kind of smart that is -- and, given Verizon's recent comments, may even be an attempt to show Apple the iPhone would be better off on a better network?

Of course, AT&T likely isn't laughing, given they're already suing Vewill likely take further issue with claims of 5x more 3G coverage, but they're already suing, right?

Facebook App: An iPhone vs. Droid Quick Comparison

Facebook App: An iPhone vs. Droid Quick Comparison

I'm a big Facebook user, and I'm guessing many of you are as well, given the interest in our Facebook for iPhone posts. Well, I was able to spend a little time with the Droid in a Verizon store on launch day, and while I wouldn't call this a full-blown comparison, it is a quick overview of some of the similarities and differences I noticed between their Facebook applications.

The setup is a little different than the iPhone. For starters, it was reminiscent of the Palm Pre; the Droid will sync your contacts to your address book. After the initial setup, I was eager to get started using the app.

Lawsuit Claims Game Company Violating Privacy, Collecting iPhone Users' Phone Numbers

The Register is reporting that a lawsuit has been filed against an iPhone game developer for privacy violations:

The complaint claims best-selling games made by Storm8 contained secret code that bypassed safeguards built into the iPhone to prevent the unauthorized snooping of user information. [...] to access, collect, and transmit the wireless phone numbers of the iPhones on which its games are installed," states the complaint, which was filed in US District Court in Northern California. "Storm8 does so or has done so in all of its games." [...] [including] World War, iMobsters, Racing Live, Vampires Live, Kingdoms Live, Zombies Live, and Rockstars Live.

iPhone 3G/3GS to be Sold at The Shack

It seems as if the previous threats of the iPhone coming to The Shack are finally about to come true. Granted it is more than a year later but it is indeed coming according to Engadget Mobile.

The iPhone 3G and 3GS rollout should begin by the end of this month at some Shack locations in the Dallas and New York City areas only. We can expect a full nationwide rollout sometime early in 2010.

It's always good to have options... right?

Jailbreakers Who Don't Change SSH Password -- There's a Rickroll for That

For iPhone Jailbreakers using SSH to access their devices, but who haven't changed their password from the default, getting Rickrolled by a worm may be annoying, no worse than getting held for ransom by a hacker, but it's a sign that far more insidious and malicious attacks are possible -- so change those passwords now!

Back to the Rickroll. TUAW reports:

iPhone vs. DROID: Which One Should You Buy?

iPhone vs. DROID: Which One Should You Buy?

Verizon's Motorola DROID, launched November 6, 2009, wasted no time taking it to Apple's iPhone 3GS, starting with a pre-emptive iDon't TV commercial that mixed unflattering fact and fiction to appeal to geeks and general consumers alike. Many have now hailed it as the best competition to the iPhone to date, and the first flagship device to match it. Are they right?

Apple Making Smaller, CDMA-Compatible "World Phone" for Verizon, Launching Q3 2010?

Apple Making Smaller, CDMA-Compatible "World Phone" for Verizon, Launching Q3 2010?

Is Apple making a smaller, CDMA-compatible "world phone" for Verizon, and readying it for Q3, 2010? Maybe. And TiPb's sure this "report" coming out on Droid Day is purely coincidental, given Google and Verizon's moment in the sun. AppleInsider, however, claims a new report, with the prerequisite "sources in Taiwan" (SiT) say it's so:

iPhone 3GS vs. Droid vs. Droid Eris -- Browser Battles!

Android Central has posted up their iPhone 3GS vs. (Motorola) Droid vs. (HTC) Droid Eris, and -- spoiler alert!!! -- the iPhone 3GS is still king of the browser hill:

Bad news for Droid lovers: the iPhone 3GS beat the heck out of the Droid in the above test. Other tests taken after the video weren't quite as dramatic as what you're seeing here, but facts is facts: the iPhone 3GS does load and render pages faster than the Droid.
