Apple and Nintendo Partnering to Develop iPhone Games?

Oh boy. My hands are already sweating...

"With the iPhone days away from being launched Nintendo has apparently begun working with Apple, licensing a limited amount of content for the new phone," Noheat.com reports. Noheat reports, "These exclusive games will be released on the iTunes Store at a $29.00 price point a few months after the iPhone launches. No word on whether Nintendo will be distributing iPod versions of these games."

Huge Line of Job Applicants at AT&T Store, Thanks to iPhone?

Huge Line of Job Applicants at AT&T Store, Thanks to iPhone?

And I thought only consumers would be lining up outside of AT&T stores. Apparently waves of job applicants are gearing up to snatch positions generated from all the iPhone buzz.

This image scares the hell out of me because it confirms that iPhone mania that we've all joked about may in fact turn out to be true. On Friday June 29, I and thousands of other consumers will standing in lines very similar to the one you see above, in order to get an iPhone. The thought that I may end up wasting my time in a long queue and coming home empty handed doesn't exactly sit well with me.

iPhone, You're no iPod...And Your Mother Dresses You Funny

iPhone, You're no iPod...And Your Mother Dresses You Funny

Saabira Chaudhuri of Fast Company believes iPhone doesn't have the chutzpah to capture the same success achieved by its cousin, the iPod.

The iPod set an impossibly high bar, one that the iPhone will not match or even come close to. But the new device could still be very successful, particularly in the long term. By combining a phone, a music player and an Internet device all in one, while coupling them with the most user friendly interface it could conceive of, Apple aims to embody one of the most fundamental ideals that underlies modern day consumerism: convenience.

AT&T's recently announced peer to peer content service, called Video Share, won't work with iPhone. Why? Because the service requires a 3G network connection. You know, 3G? That lamentedly lacking technology in iPhone?

Opera Mini 4 Copies Safari for iPhone

Opera Mini 4 Copies Safari for iPhone

Developers at Opera appear to be suffering iPhone envy. Today the company rolled out a public beta of its Opera Mini 4 browser, designed for Java enabled phones, which rips off features first unveiled on iPhone's Safari browser. Opera Mini 4 sports Safari's impressive zoom feature that enables users to see a large thumbnail image of a web page, and navigate or zoom to specific sections of the page by tapping in that location.

I've used Opera Mini on my Treo and frankly it stinks. So does the Treo for that matter, but that's another topic. The browser is very poorly optimized and lacks elegance and integration of a native application environment. Opera's mobile browser for Windows Mobile is a much better overall solution, but still lacks refinement. Keep trying, Opera. You'll get it right - eventually.

Apple Developing Low-Cost iPhone for Common Plebes

Apple Developing Low-Cost iPhone for Common Plebes

That zany analyst Shaw Wu (woo woo) from American Tech Research speculates that Apple is developing a low-cost mass market iPhone for the RAZR crowd, or so he says. Mr. Wu (can I call you Mr. Wu?) is basing his reasoning on Apple's iPod strategy which began with the introduction of pricey high end models, eventually branching off into an assortment of models in different price tiers.

In other news, researchers have discovered the sky is blue. Video at 11:00.

Poll Says 19 Million Cell Phone Users Would Sell Their Organs for iPhone

Poll Says 19 Million Cell Phone Users Would Sell Their Organs for iPhone

A poll conducted by research firm M:Metrics in May concluded that nearly 19 Million (queue Dr. Evil voice) cell phone users here in the land of the free are willing to shell out $599 for an iPhone - and intend to do so on June 29. If this survey translates into reality, Verizon and Sprint may see a huge defection among their subscriber base as customers migrate to AT&T in order to get an iPhone.

I don't put much faith behind polls, but I do believe that all the iPhone haters out there are going to be left with egg on their face as June 29+ will reveal some rather interesting surprises.

iPhone Forces Nokia to Rethink Touch Screens

Om Malik sees iPhone having a coercive effect on Nokia's product strategy. The Finnish phone maker is now rethinking its decision to focus almost solely on non-touch screen devices, and plans to optimize future versions of its Symbian OS on touch interaction.

Apple Stock Jumps $3 on iPhone Battery Life Report

Apple Stock Jumps $3 on iPhone Battery Life Report

The press release published today by Apple sent the company stock price trending upwards more than $3 a share. Frightening how even the most trivial news can effect stocks. In other news, I sat on my car keys this morning, sending me upwards more than three feet in the air. Sadly this had no effect on my portfolio.

Eric Schmidt Has an iPhone, Flaunts it in Your Face

Remember back in January at MacWorld, during the iPhone unveiling, when Google CEO Eric Schmidt jested on stage that one of the reasons he joined Apple's board of directors was to get an iPhone? It was all made in fun of course, but it seems Eric made good on that boast because he in fact does now have an iPhone, which he flaunted on camera at a recent forum. (see above).

Did Apple Improve Battery Life By Sacrificing Features?

Did Apple Improve Battery Life By Sacrificing Features?

In the words of a gum chewing George C. Scott in Dr. Strangelove, "Mr. President...I smell a big fat Commie rat!". iPhone's disclosed talk time seems suspiciously robust for a full screened touch device, which leads me to wonder if someone at Cupertino isn't blowing smoke in our faces. Apple could have sacrificed any number of features to achieve this "impressive" feat in battery life. For example the biggest consumer of power in a handset of this class is the LCD. One way around the problem is to throttle down screen brightness, and limiting its highest setting. I've seen numberous manufacturers play this card in the past, so I wouldn't be bowled over to see Apple follow the same path, though I'm not claiming that's what happened here.

Report: iPhone Display Made of Glass?

Among the interesting factoids to come out of today's press release is the revelation that iPhone's touch display is fabricated from Glass rather than typical plastic found on competing smartphones. This is at once interesting and troubling. The durability of glass in a destructable device is questionable. Will the iPhone survive sudden drops to the floor? Will it crack inside your pants pocket if too much flexing or tensile stress is exerted on it? looks around worried
