Apple / AT&T Spat? GOOG/AAPL 700Mhz?

Apple / AT&T Spat? GOOG/AAPL 700Mhz?

I'll admit to liking Robert X. Cringely of PBS. Sure, his theories are wild sometimes. But they're wild in a fun way, and he'll revisit things that he got wrong. He doesn't resort to trolling like some writers of his generation who happen to be friends of his, and when he does troll, it's against something that we all hate anyway, like our mobile phone carrier. He's a uniter, not a divider.

Google Maps: My Location

Google Maps: My Location

Google Maps for Mobile has unveiled a pretty sweet new feature -- on a bevy of mobile phones, Google Maps is smart enough to figure out approximately where you are. Google's system uses a method known as tower triangulation -- your phone keeps a list of nearby towers, and makes note of how strong your signal is. Google accesses their database of towers and compares your signal strength and correlates it to a likely location on the map. It's pretty slick, and has been common in parts of Europe for ages. Location-based features of mobile phones are a killer app, to be sure.

iPhone Launches in France Tonight

iPhone Launches in France Tonight

The iPhone launches in France tonight on the carrier Orange. One of the cool things about the French launch is that they're selling the unlocked iPhone for so much less than T-Mobile is selling it for. Maybe all the delays in launching a French iPhone were because Orange was a tougher negotiator... if that's true, the extra time was worth it: the uncontracted iPhone from Orange is a bargain at €649 (about $975); the standard locked iPhone with one of their four simplified plans is €399 (about $600),

The customer can unlock the iPhone for €100 (about $150), which drops to free after six months. If only we could have some straight answers from AT&T and Apple about unlocking in the U.S.A.

British Blow Raspberries at iPhone, Threaten to Retake Former Colonies

British Blow Raspberries at iPhone, Threaten to Retake Former Colonies

Now see here, you Yanks. This whole iPhone concept...it's just not cricket. You plebes may fall victim to the seductive powers of Sir Steven Jobs, with his shiny expensive bobs and brickabrack, but we Brits are made of tougher stuff. You won't find it so easy fobbing off your gadgety thingies on us, by Jove. Just look at the pittance of iPhone activations made since launching here in the UK, something like 26,500? Mere truffles, I tell you. The queen has more diamond studs in her dinner gown. Knickers!

Now do go on and take your toys elsewhere, or Parliament will have to reassess the terms its peace treaty with you and reclaim lost territory. We wouldn't want to start an "incident" now would we? There's a good chaps.

iPhone is Next Major Computing Platform?

<

p>Zach Nelson of Inc.com declared the iPhone is ushering in the next major computing platform. I agree with him, really -- the ability to intelligently browse actual websites on the iPhone is a killer business feature. He's the CEO of NetSuite, and a bit of the article is him crowing that NetSuite worked perfectly with the iPhone out-of-box, but still... it's a good article with some fine insights:

iPhone As Learning Tool and Refrigerator Art. Children Outsmarting Parents

Rakesh Agrawal’s 3 year old daughter devised a clever means for watching instructional videos on her father's iPhone using common refrigerator magnets to mount the device on the fridge. Positioned for just her height, the industrious little scamp uses her iPhone to learn Yo-yo techniques by watching How-to videos from Veronica Belmont of Mahalo Daily. I'm betting Mom and Dad won't be so proud once the 3 year old realizes her invention is patentable and a lucrative product market, enjoying fabulous wealth while her parents are left staring at a empty refrigerator.

Apple's Joswiak: "We're Awesome"

The title doesn't give an exact quote, but if I was to say there's a gist to this interview, that would be it. CNN Money.com Fortune interviewed Apple's Greg Joswiak, who is in charge of marketing for iPhones and iPods. As is almost always the case with an interview like this, he doles out the money quotes like Michael Jordan sticks out his tongue. Some of it we've heard before -- they want to take time to make sure everything is going alright, and there isn't really any new news, just that it's presented in more detail than before:

Rare Find: Relevant Press Release

It's an increasingly rare day when a press release finds its way to my inbox that's actually relevant to me or anyone that uses an iPhone. But, goosync.com has done it. They have a product that syncs your iPhone with Google's online calendar. It's a Windows-only app and it requires Outlook with a plugin, but if you were looking for a way to sync the Google to your iPhone, there's a way to do it.

"A synchronisation application is not yet available for the Apple iPhone. However, it is still possible to synchronise the device with GooSync by using the Funambol Outlook Plugin. [....] A GooSync client for the Apple iPhone is planned for release in Q1 2008."
I don't know why you would, but if you need the press release, it's after the break.
