Texas University: An iPhone for Every Freshman

Apple and education, an historically great market that goes great with Macs. Well now, if Abilene Christian University (ACU) is any precursor, Mobile OS X is about to follow in it's big desktop brother's shoes.

According to Phil Schubert, ACU executive vice president, "an Apple iPhone or iPod touch will become a central part of Abilene Christian University's innovative learning experience this fall when all freshmen are provided one of these converged media devices."

TiAIN Coating? $299. Turning Your iPhone to Dark Side? Priceless.

TiAIN Coating? $299. Turning Your iPhone to Dark Side? Priceless.

iPhone Custom is now offering to coat your iPhone in high quality TiAIN for $299.

And while $299 might sound expensive (same price as a brand new iPod Touch 8GB!), the end result looks impressive enough to tempt higher-end customers and early adapters, longing for a return of the jealous stares they got when flashing their iPhone on Day One.

Purchasing is simple: just eject your SIM, place your iPhone in a pre-labelled shipper, and send it off to iPhone Custom for your choice of black or gold glossy logo and bezel.

The process is also available for iPod Touch and 3G iPod Nano.

SDK Event to Bring Exchange and Lotus Support?

Again with the Apple Insider analyst tea-leaf reading, we get word from Shaw Wu of American Technology Research that Steve Jobs will spend some time during Thursday's iPhone SDK Event announcing enhanced support for Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus corporate email "solutions" (having worked in IT, I'm entitled to add the quotes.)

iPhone Coming to Ireland. And That's No Blarney

iPhone Coming to Ireland. And That's No Blarney

Put down your pint of Guinness and drop your Blarney stone. Apple struck a deal with O2 Ireland to bring iPhone to the land of shamrocks and bar fights. That confirmation comes straight from the horses mouth, depending on which end is speaking, in the form of an official announcement on O2's website which lists iPhone's availability on March 14. So there you have it.

Now how about making a nice pot of corned beef and cabbage for wee little Kent?

Irish iPhones Now Crying? No Unlimited Data or Visual Voice Mail?

Irish iPhones Now Crying? No Unlimited Data or Visual Voice Mail?

As posted (and updated) earlier, O2 has officially launched the iPhone in Ireland, making it the fifth country (after the US, UK, Germany, and France) to enjoy the revolutionary phone and breakthrough internet device... ish...

Apple Insider reports that Irish iPhone plans, unlike all previous iPhone plans DO NOT come with unlimited data or visual voicemail (a feature often touted by Steve Jobs as being a prime example of carrier cooperation and hence, the benefit of exclusivity).

There seems to be two options here:

USB: 3G iPhone to Launch Q3 2008?

In the always entertaining game of analyst hot potato, Apple Insider brings word from global equity research analyst Nicolas Gaudois who writes that his checks agree with their Apple analyst, Ben Reitzesa's checks, that a 3G HSDPA "will be released by mid-year".

According to Gaudois, current iPhone chip supplier Infineon, in anticipation of the switch, is ramping down production of 2.5G Edge basebands.

Apple Holding Special "iPhone Software Roadmap" Event on March 6. Bring a Date, and your Compiler

Apple Holding Special "iPhone Software Roadmap" Event on March 6. Bring a Date, and your Compiler

Mark your calendars for March 6, 10:00 am PST. Apple will be holding a special event for members of the media, outlining the company's iPhone development roadmap, as well a possible SDK release for developers. Apple began sending out invitations to the press early this morning, except for me of course. Steve Jobs has never forgiven me for photoshopping his head on Napoleon's bust. And I was so looking forward to the free crab cake.

Stay tuned.

US Legislation: You Have the Right to... Unlock Your iPhone?

US Legislation: You Have the Right to... Unlock Your iPhone?

Representative Ed Mackey (D-Mass) wants to make Apple & ATT (and all other US providers) cry. How? By copying the French. Well, technically, by adopting a law similar to France's which mandates that cell companies "shall offer to consumers the opportunity to purchase subsidy-free wireless customer equipment."

Under this proposal, Apple & ATT would likely be forced to offer an unlocked (and unsubsidized) version of the iPhone. (Bidding to start at US$999?)

Potentially worse for the telcos, it would mandate a level of clarity, detail, and (gasp!) understandability for rate plans, including itemization and disclosure of taxes and early termination fees.

iPhone SDK Event Next Thursday

iPhone SDK Event Next Thursday

It's coming, the SDK is really really coming. Thank the lord. Apple has sent out invitations to an event titled "iPhone Software Road Map." That may or may not mean they're actually releasing the SDK, but it doesn't sound like we'll be getting a slew of new apps next week.

Yes, it technically is late for the February release, but it's a relief to not be so in the dark anymore. Also interesting:

1.1.4: Jailbreakers: Go! Unlockers: Stop!

Well the news about 1.1.4 is that there's no news -- the apps are the same, the features are the same. The good news is the popular ZiPhone / iJailBreak method of jailbreaking works just fine -- for Jailbreaking. Unlocking is apparently still a no-go, but just you wait, it will be.

SD... er... Firmware Version 1.1.4 Released

If you're a dirty, dirty iPhone Jailbreaker or iPhone Unlocker, move right along because I'm sure it's going to take awhile for this to shake out. If you're a mere mortal, though, go on and open up iTunes and apply the update to version 1.1.4. What's on it? "Bug fixes." That's all we know for sure just now.

Findme: LoJack for your iPhone

Findme: LoJack for your iPhone

Erica Sadun has done it again, creating a great app for the iPhone called "findme." What it does is constantly track your iPhone's location and sends it via SMS to Twitter. The idea is that if your iPhone is stolen or you want to enable your stalkers to keep track of you constantly, you can set this up and you'll automatically have a private Twitter page that shows the iPhone's approximate longitude and latitude.

iPhone SDK: Delayed? Full Featured? Yes Please.

iPhone SDK: Delayed? Full Featured? Yes Please.

The SDK might be delayed one to three weeks, says Arik Hesseldal of BusinessWeek:

I’m hearing from one source that its going to be late. I’m not yet hearing any reasons why, and it’s sounding like the official release date could slide by anywhere from one to three weeks. [...] However I’m also hearing that the situation is fluid, and a lot of last-minute decisions are close to being made about what precisely will or will not be disclosed next week, if anything. There are, apparently, a lot of moving parts to something this complex.

A lot of "moving parts," eh, ya think? It would be a major bummer if the SDK is delayed, but it wouldn't be too shocking - the sand is quickly running out of February's hourglass. Fairly soon, though, we're going to have some information about the SDK and I have to admit that my expectations are rising the more I think about it.

This is related (again) to Mike and my discussion in our iPhone Podcast last week. As I see it, there are four ways that the SDK announcement (whenever it comes) can shake out. Read on for some thoughts on what we might see and what I hope to see.
