Apple Sends Out iPhone 3G Customer Satisfaction Survey

Apple, via Medallia, is sending out customer satisfaction surveys:

Thank you for your purchase of the Apple iPhone 3G. We would like to ask you a few questions about your experience with your new phone. [...] The information you provide will be used to improve our product support. We will not use your responses to sell you products or services.

Questions include where you've gone for iPhone help (cheat sheet: TiPb!), whether you've returned your handset to your carrier for repair or replacement, whether you primarily use Windows or Mac, whether you primarily use your iPhone for work or play, whether it's your first Apple product, and general demographic info.

AT&T CTO Talks Network Fixer-Upper Plans

Last week Apple and Infineon were getting all the heat for shoddy 3G performance. Now AT&T is getting its share of the blame with a dizzying array of combinations. First it was Wired's fairly damning survey and the Swedish antenna tests that pointed further fingers at the network, and now Gizmodo head-honcho Brian Lam has had the chance to chat with AT&T CTO John Donovan:

Apple Releases Safari 4 Developer Preview

Apple Releases Safari 4 Developer Preview

What is it? The latest build of Apple's next generation desktop browser, based on their Open Source WebKit framework. Why do we care? Because the very same framework powers the desktop version's baby brother, MobileSafari on the iPhone, and while the 2.0 firmware brought some improvements to the latter, we ain't seen nothing like 4.0 yet.

Cool. Who else loves this cat and mouse game that Apple and the iPhone dev team have with one another? First one goes and the other quickly follows, you gotta admit, at the very least it makes for good theater. At best? Well, a jailbroken iPhone of course!

More From Kevin: New iPods on Sept. 9 + iTunes 8 to Include Recommendations

Following up his big blog rumor-fest with an appearance on This Week in Tech (TWiT), Kevin Rose filled in a few details, including that the supposed new Nano, face-lifted iPod Touch, and 2.1 firmware (presumably) would drop on September 9 at a Special Apple Event (or perhaps that the invitation for the special event would be issued on the 9th, it wasn't crystal clear).

With the Plantronics Voyager 815 Bluetooth Headset ($89.95), the innovation is an in-ear earbud and a sliding boom mic. Do they create a better Bluetooth Headset? Or are these features just bells and whistles? How does the Plantronics Voyager 815 perform?

Tris, the Free Tetris© iPhone App, is Coming Down

Tris, the Free Tetris© iPhone App, is Coming Down

The developer lets us know [via Giz] that famously lawsuit-happy Tetris©-IP-owners "The Tetris© Company" has contacted him and told him he has to take down Tris. Noah writes:

That, I'm afraid, is essentially game over. Do they have a case? No. Not really. I am convinced that if it went to court, the "copyright" claim would get thrown out completely. The trademark, perhaps not — but if I changed the name, to e.g. “Trys”, that would be much harder for them to argue.

New iPhone App Store Ads... Will Change Everything

Already seen Dark Knight like 5 times and itching for some new content to fill your Saturday night? Well, if you're into short form, Apple has your fix of three all new, all App Store-focused new iPhone ads.

Rumor-mill: iPod Touch to Get GPS?! + iPod Nano Case Leaks?!

Could all the rumors -- and even Kevin Rose -- have been right? Will we see a longer, widescreen iPod Nano that brings the candy-bar shape back? MacRumors rounds up some "leaked" "case designs" that suggest maybe they are -- or merely that even the Chinese read Kevin Rose's blog? Roughly Drafted, on the other hand points out that a new aspect ration for the screen might cause problems for existing iPod formatted videos and games.
