Is an iPhone Shuffle in the Making?

Is an iPhone Shuffle in the Making?

Amidst all of the 3G Rumor Bonanza, an interesting nugget of thought popped up over at Macenstein. No, they didn’t jump on the blogwagon and predict the release date of the 3G iPhone. Instead, they predicted that an iPhone Shuffle would be released.

According to their tipster, the “engineering and development is basically done” and that it comes in a slimmer and thinner form factor, but get this, no video playback. I'm not so sure of an iPhone without video, it kind of steps away from what Steve Jobs envisioned the iPhone to be--a multi-tool for the future. No video? That's too 2004 for my taste.

Tip O' The Week: Saving a Soggy iPhone

Tip O' The Week: Saving a Soggy iPhone

Every week, we'll be bringing you a tip, trick, or quick how-to on how to keep your iPhone ship-shape. You'll be able to see them all in our tip archive.

The young lady that cuts my hair told me a horror story today. I just about broke into a sweat listening to her tale of terror. A recent iPhone convert, she was at home in her bathroom (hostile environment for all things electronic), putting her make-up on, and with a careless sweep of her arm, her iPhone scored a perfect "10" from the high dive straight into the commode.

Panicked (as you can imagine), she fished out her iPhone, immediately turned it off, and dried it as best she could. Waiting a day, she tried turning it on, but no dice -- it seemed to have given up the ghost in the machine. Still filled with hope, she carried her iPhone in her pocket the rest of the day and, amazingly, it came to life.

All was not well, though. Having made it through a drowning and near-death experience, her iPhone's "Home" button no longer worked -- her iPhone was useless; a mere night-light.

If your iPhone encounters water (or falls in your mug of ale), retrieve it immediately, power it off, dry it as best you can with a cloth, and click the bookmark you just made for this article. You did that, right?

Read on for the deets on how to save your precious iPhone!

In Memoriam: Stan Flack

In Memoriam: Stan Flack

It is with sadness we report the passing of Stan Flack, the founder of both MacCentral and MacMinute. He passed away quietly today (Monday) at his home in Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Stan has been in the Mac industry since 1994 when MacCentral first went online as a weekly publication. Things were a lot different back then - the Internet as we know it was in its infancy - but Stan saw a way to make a successful business.

Mr. Flack certainly contributed to the Apple community and will certainly be missed. He is considered by many to be a pioneer in Mac journalism. For the complete story, head over to Macworld.

iPhone Assaulting Microsoft's Dominance?

No sooner are we done asking you if ActiveSync is an "Open" Apple Trojan Horse like Roughly Drafted Magazine suggests then Business Week comes along and wonders aloud if the iPhone is spear-heading an all out assault on Microsoft's workplace dominance.

Willingness to modernize, smaller and more adaptable kernel, rapid to-market ability, and Sun Tzu-like battle strategy are only some of the points Gary Morgenthaler touches on:
