CEOh-SNAP: AT&T Says (Again!) iPhone Exclusivity Will End

AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega stated that his carrier's exclusive agreement to sell Apple's iPhone in the US... will end one day. Of course, we knew this. You knew this. AT&T and Apple knew this. Everybody knew this, because they've said it before. Still, on the eve of a highly successful quarterly results report, where the iPhone once again carrier the day for AT&T earnings, they obviously felt the need to say it again:

Attack of the iClones: Microsoft Literally Copies the Apple Store

Microsoft has opened their first Microsoft Store, and kudos to them for that. However, we can't help but feel that by literally copying an Apple Store to the degree that only the signage and products are swapped out, Microsoft cost consumers a chance to experience something different, something innovative, and something that would have continued to push the retail part of the computer and smartphone industry.

AT&T Q3 Results -- 3.2 Million iPhones Activated, 40% to New Customers

AT&T Q3 Results -- 3.2 Million iPhones Activated, 40% to New Customers

Hot on the heels of Apple's Q4 results come AT&T's Q3 report, and the iPhone-related news keeps getting better and better, including a record 3.2 million activations, 40% of which went to new customers.

And the records didn't stop there. Highest Q3 net subscriber gain, best ever Q3 churn rate, largest quarterly increase of integrated devices (like iPhone) in history, and 33.6% increase in data revenue.

What's astonishing is this growth persists despite widespread, ongoing -- almost farcical at this point -- reports of poor network experience for iPhone users. Imagine if AT&T could build out infrastructure to meet demand in areas like San Francisco and New York?

AT&T Encourages Employees to Cry About Net Neutrality to FCC

Gizmodo is reporting that AT&T sent out a letter to employees encouraging them, along with their families, to protest the FCC's net neutrality rules. It was said the letter even encouraged the use of the employees private email instead of their company email. For them to stoop this low makes it pretty obvious they are not to hip to the idea of net neutrality. Gizmodo later updated their post with the following:

Mythical Apple iTablet to be Ultimate Comic Book Reader?

Mythical Apple iTablet to be Ultimate Comic Book Reader?

Could Apple's still unannounced, non-existant (for consumers anyway) iTablet be the ultimate comic book reader? Chicago Sun-Times columnist, Apple aficionado, and Sheldon-esque comic book lover Andy Ihnatko suggests just that. When writing about LongBox, which seeks to do for comics what iTunes did for music (i.e. bring a fractured, self-destructive, myopic industry kicking and screaming into the 21st century), he says:

iTunes Gets Twitter Accounts, Bing and Google Get Twitter Real-Time Search

iTunes Gets Twitter Accounts, Bing and Google Get Twitter Real-Time Search

Big news round Twitter-way, with Apple adding a few more official Twitter accounts, and Microsoft Bing and Google paying for unrestricted access to real-time search Twitter's firehose of user status posts.

First up, while Apple's never been accused of "getting" social media, and it may come as a surprise they're using Twitter at all, it's not so surprising that -- rather than customer feedback, support, or insight into the iron curtain that shrouds Cupertino -- these accounts are just news/marketing updates on when the latest music and media hits the world's most popular download service. (And some seem less than active at the moment). Baby steps?

CEOh-SNAP: Ballmer Says the Internet Wasn't Designed for the iPhone

Steve Ballmer, whose company produced the single most internet-hostile program in history -- Internet Explorer 6 -- has the stupefying temerity to state:

Let's face it, the Internet was designed for the PC. The Internet is not designed for the iPhone. That's why they've got 75,000 applications - they're all trying to make the Internet look decent on the iPhone.

Quick App: Earthworm Jim Blasts its Way Onto the iPhone

Earthworm Jim [$4.99 - iTunes link], an iPhone and iPod touch remake of the classic Sega and Nintendo game of the same name, has just landed in the App Store.

Confession: I was a huge Earthworm Jim fan back in the day. The animation sold me instantly, and that animation looks just as good on the iPhone. I'm downloading it now. If anyone else gives it a try, especially old-school fans, let us know what you think.
