iPhone Doubles Share of Smartphone Market

iPhone Doubles Share of Smartphone Market

While I still firmly believe Apple's primary currency is mindshare and their primary concern is profit share, analysts fill their plates with metrics and so it's dinner time once again for smartphone marketshare reports!

And how is Apple doing? Up from 5.3 to 10.8 according to Gartner, while the smartphone market as a whole was up 12.7%.

Of course, when you don't sell below-cost, margin eating goods, high market share goes hand in hand with high profit share, so Apple is no doubt enjoying both at the moment.

Fraudulent "iTunes" Alert -- Check Your Charges!

Fraudulent "iTunes" Alert -- Check Your Charges!

There's no technology that's 100% safe from fraud or social engineering. Those are predators that walk the cyber landscape, and just like hunter gatherers had to watch out for saber-toothed tigers and dire wolves, modern consumers have to keep an eye out for scammers and spammers.

So, it comes as little surprise that Fox New York (via Consumerist) reports iTunes is among the many attack vectors Bad Guys use when committing their fraud.

Apple Pressuring AT&T to Lower Rates in Face of Palm Pre Competition?

31

Apple Pressuring AT&T to Lower Rates in Face of Palm Pre Competition?

Confession: we secretly hope the Palm Pre does very well. Not because we want one ourselves -- we're pretty happy with the iPhone round here -- but because we want Apple and AT&T to think we want one so they continue to drive up innovation and drive down costs respectively. Competition is, was, and will forever be a Good Thing.

Rumorous Maximus: iPhone Models to be Differentiated by Software?

Rumorous Maximus: iPhone Models to be Differentiated by Software?

That's what some are taking away from the analyst briefings we linked to last week. Apple would have only one hardware platform, but different versions of the software for different SKUs of the iPhone.

Sigh. It's hard enough to convince people that software isn't just math, and math isn't free, without dodgy OS stripping schemes artificially creating crippled, low-end versions. Apple thus far has known this -- Mac OS X comes in only two versions, client and server. Likewise, they tend to have their free/cheap regular software like iPhoto, and pro apps like Aperture.

iPhone Easter Eggs Could Kill App Store Golden Egg?

iPhone Easter Eggs Could Kill App Store Golden Egg?

A billion apps. Developers getting rich. Apple making a bit of money. Or is it all just a house of cards ready to come tumbling down, with only one sneaky developer and a rule-breaking easter egg to blame?

See, the App Store has rules. You can't, for example, include porn in an application and expect it to get approved and hosted by Apple in the App Store. But lets say your app looks all sweet and interesting, gets approved by Apple, and then lets slip that with one little gesture or secret code -- porn. Or worse, malware or other malicious code.

iPhone 3.0: Push Notification Settings Redux

19

iPhone 3.0: Push Notification Settings Redux

As we mentioned yesterday, Apple has begun load testing of their Push Notification Service. Certain developers have been given promo codes to a special version of AP News that, when installed, can be configured to utilize Push Notification. This means that screens we've seen previously via code digging can now be seen for real, and there are a few interesting things therein.

The setup seems not dissimilar to how GPS was handled on the iPhone 3G. A popup identifies the app and requests permission to send you Push Notifications, and you can choose "Don't Allow" or "OK". A Notifications panel in Settings lets you choose to globally turn the service On or Off, and lists the apps using the service so you can individually toggle Sounds, Alerts, and Badges On or Off as well for each one. (i.e. if you want Twitter to badge but not alert, IM to sound but not badge, etc. you can have it your way).

More screenshots after the jump, and check out our massive iPhone 3.0 Walkthrough for even more!

Apple Embiggening Phone Support Just in Time for...?

Apple Embiggening Phone Support Just in Time for...?

Looks like Apple is throwing some telecommuting muscle behind their phone support, with up to 450 "At Home Experts" joining the team just in time for... Well, that's the big question.

The time frame seems to be from July through September, which sounds a tad late for new iPhone hardware, though if Apple has something extra to announce, something that might take a couple extra months for developers to work on before release, something that does for the ultra-portable market what the iPod and iPhone did for MP3 and smartphones...

Well, then, we'd be rumormongering too. cough iTablet cough iNetbook cough.
