iPhone vs. DROID: Which One Should You Buy?

Verizon's Motorola DROID, launched November 6, 2009, wasted no time taking it to Apple's iPhone 3GS, starting with a pre-emptive iDon't TV commercial that mixed unflattering fact and fiction to appeal to geeks and general consumers alike. Many have now hailed it as the best competition to the iPhone to date, and the first flagship device to match it. Are they right?

Apple Making Smaller, CDMA-Compatible "World Phone" for Verizon, Launching Q3 2010?

Apple Making Smaller, CDMA-Compatible "World Phone" for Verizon, Launching Q3 2010?

Is Apple making a smaller, CDMA-compatible "world phone" for Verizon, and readying it for Q3, 2010? Maybe. And TiPb's sure this "report" coming out on Droid Day is purely coincidental, given Google and Verizon's moment in the sun. AppleInsider, however, claims a new report, with the prerequisite "sources in Taiwan" (SiT) say it's so:

iPhone 3GS vs. Droid vs. Droid Eris -- Browser Battles!

iPhone 3GS vs. Droid vs. Droid Eris -- Browser Battles!

Android Central has posted up their iPhone 3GS vs. (Motorola) Droid vs. (HTC) Droid Eris, and -- spoiler alert!!! -- the iPhone 3GS is still king of the browser hill:

Bad news for Droid lovers: the iPhone 3GS beat the heck out of the Droid in the above test. Other tests taken after the video weren't quite as dramatic as what you're seeing here, but facts is facts: the iPhone 3GS does load and render pages faster than the Droid.

iTunes LP and iTunes Extras Now Apple TV 3.0 Ready -- Still No Love for iPhone

iTunes LP and iTunes Extras Now Apple TV 3.0 Ready -- Still No Love for iPhone

It still baffles us how iTunes LP and iTunes Extras content -- which was introduced in the seemingly Apple TV-ideal 720p format -- wasn't compatible with the new Apple TV 3.0 software to begin with. In fact, we've gotten Wall-E with iTunes Extras to play on our Apple TV already. But according to Apple, it's now really for real compatible...

How Macworld Got Their iPhone App Approved or How Having a Big Voice Helps

How Macworld Got Their iPhone App Approved or How Having a Big Voice Helps

Umpteenth verse, same as the first -- Macworld turned their iPhone ebook into and app and submitted it to the iTunes App Store. It was rejected. Several times. Finally editor Jason Snell expressed his frustration on Twitter and several high profile blogs picked it up. Apple called him immediately to try and make it right.

Good for Macworld. Bad for all the developers who lack the same megaphone by virtue of their job and connections.

Follow Friday: iPhone Twitter Lists and "New Style" RetweetsEdition

We'll save you the preamble this time; suffice it to say iPhone+Twitter = peanutbutter cuppy goodness. And now Twitter is rolling out new features to either make it dark chocolatey super good, or just to give us a sugar headache, we're not sure which (though we're fairly sure we've strained the confectionary metaphor well beyond the point of painful, so moving on...)

AT&T Planning Release of $99 8GB iPhone 3GS?

Boy Genius has heard some rumblings that AT&T is ready to launch an 8GB iPhone 3GS in preparation of Verizon releasing the highly anticipated Motorola Droid. While this is not confirmed this would be a good way for Apple to pick up quite a bit more sales just in time for the holiday season, especially in the $99 price range. Black Friday anyone?

Steve Jobs -- CEO of the Decade

Steve Jobs -- CEO of the Decade

Fortune Magazine has named Steve Jobs CEO of the Decade. The Apple co-founder, Apple II, Mac, iPod, iTunes, and iPhone visionary is summed up in suitably dramatic fashion:

Youthful founder gets booted from his company in the 1980s, returns in the 1990s, and in the following decade survives two brushes with death, one securities-law scandal, an also-ran product lineup, and his own often unpleasant demeanor to become the dominant personality in four distinct industries, a billionaire many times over, and CEO of the most valuable company in Silicon Valley.
