CEOh-Snap! RIM Boss: Touchscreens Stink -- Let's iClone One!

CEOh-Snap! RIM Boss: Touchscreens Stink -- Let's iClone One!

Ah, comedy, thy name is Lazaridis!

What, you may ask, makes the CEO of Blackberry manufacturer RIM so knee slapping-ly funny? Deadpan Setups (on April 27th) like this:

THERE’S a reason that R.I.M. is averse to the iPhone’s glass pad. “I couldn’t type on it and I still can’t type on it, and a lot of my friends can’t type on it,” says Mike Lazaridis, R.I.M.’s co-chief executive and technological visionary. “It’s hard to type on a piece of glass.”

Followed by absolutely killer punch-lines (on May 13th):

Buy an iPhone for $249 & $349

Buy an iPhone for $249 & $349

AT&T is currently selling refurbished iPhones in their online store! The 8GB version is going for $249 and the 16GB version is priced at $349. With no iPhones currently in the pipeline over at Apple, this is probably the best bet to get an iPhone online. AT&T has sold iPhones at this price a few time before so I wouldn't look too much into it (read: this is in no way a rumor of Apple & AT&T cleaning out old stock before the imminent release of the 3G iPhone, though by putting this in parenthesis I'm well aware of the possibility).

Review: Sketches, Native App-a-Week

Review: Sketches, Native App-a-Week

Can’t wait any longer for Native Apps? Me neither. (Late) June seems too far away? I’m with you. So why wait, when you can jailbreak! Over the next couple months before 2.0 is released, I’ll give you guys a glimpse into the jailbroken world of native apps every week. Plus: let's face it, Jailbreaking isn't going anywhere. The SDK is awesome, but some people won't settle for anything less than full-on access to all the hidden bits of the iPhone.

Designed by the folks over at Nullriver, Sketches puts a modern spin on a timeless classic. The premise of the app is simple: it turns your iPhone into a 21st century etch-a-sketch complete with multiple colors, varying lines, shapes, and you got it, a little shake of the iPhone to erase. How does it perform? Is it more than just a gimmick program?

Read on for the rest of the review! (and remember you’ll need a Jailbroken iPhone to take advantage of this native app)

iPhone Risk: Swiss Timing and iChat + TV Rumors!

iPhone Risk: Swiss Timing and iChat + TV Rumors!

Joking that the iPhone Risk map was getting a little crowded up in Europe... turns out not to be a joke anymore:

Swisscom on Wednesday confirmed it will begin selling Apple's iPhone in Switzerland this year, possibly bolstering a recent report on the matter which also stated that the handset would arrive with video conferencing and other fresh features.

What fresh new features? As if borrowing from Kevin Rose's twitter feed, GPS, bi-direction video iChat Mobile, and mobile TV.

Checking the score board:

Phone different (tiPB?) Podcast 18 - Wait-a-Thon

Phone different (tiPB?) Podcast 18 - Wait-a-Thon

Mike Overbo is back this week for the 18th installment of our [insert preferred name here] Podcast! We discuss the continuing rumors of the iPhone 3G, iPhone 2.0, and more. Definitely worth a listen.

We're also doubling up the Wait-a-Thon today. If you haven't already commented on How to get your content into iTunes, go do that. Then come back here for another chance to win a $100 iTunes gift certificate. The question we need answered: What should we call the podcast? "The Phone different Podcast?" ... "The iPhone Blog Podcast?" ... something else?

(One last bit -- we're going to be moving our podcasts over to another server in the near future -- all of 'em. Should add some reliability in the podcast. If your version stops halfway through, just delete and re-subscribe in iTunes and it'll download properly.)

Switching to iPhone: How To Get Your Content Into iTunes - Wait-a-Thon!

Switching to iPhone: How To Get Your Content Into iTunes - Wait-a-Thon!

[Note: This a a Wait-A-Thon post! Comment on this post -- or any post tagged "Wait-a-Thon" -- for your chance to win a $100 iTunes Gift Card! Note that you must post with a valid and real email address so we can send you your prize -- no switching!]

More and more people are switching to the iPhone. They’re switching from Palm and Windows Mobile and even Blackberry (looking at you, Barack Obama!) smartphones to the iPhone. They’re switching carriers to get the iPhone. They’re switching off the carrier-locks just to be able to switch to the iPhone in their own, currently unsupported countries. And now that the next-gen iPhone 3G is all but upon us, and more and more regions are announcing deals to offer it, the switching is only going to get faster and more furious.

To celebrate the switchers, those who dare to phone different, the iPhone Blog wants to help you get your content off your old, perhaps restrictive and outdates systems, and onto iTunes, ready to sync to your new iPhone.

Read on to find out how!

iPhone Wi-Fi Redux: AT&T & Boingo?

iPhone Wi-Fi Redux: AT&T & Boingo?

Let's do some catching up. First, iPhone users had free AT&T Wi-Fi at their hotspots. Then we lost it. Then it popped back up. Then it disappeared. And now we're going to get it...eventually? If and when they do decide to officially give free Wi-Fi to iPhone users (June, perhaps?), I will be the first to commend them.

Mr. Ive Goes To Hollywood: iPhone Designer Designs for Wall-E

Pop quiz, hotshot: You're the acclaimed director of Finding Nemo and a Bug's Life. Your latest project, Wall-E, requires a state-of-the-art-of-design robot straight from the 26th century. What do you do?

If you answered, call your boss Steven P. Jobs, who also happens to run a little, perennially design-award winning, consumer electronics company called Apple, and see if he can hook you up with uber-designer Jonathan Ive, than you, like Andrew Stanton, are correct.

iObama! iPhone Campaign Sighting

iObama! iPhone Campaign Sighting

Either sister site Crackberry.com jumped the gun in endorsing Barack Obama based on his favorite gadget being a "Blackberry", or the Senator once again proved himself the young, hip, agent of change in ditching last year's Waterloo for some Cupertino chic in the form of the iPhone.

Whether a gift from Oprah, or from El Jobso himself in lieu of campaign donations, this video (after the ad, 1:10 in -- kinda) clearly shows Obama pulling out his elegantly styled iPhone, effortlessly navigating its unmatched user interface, and easily receiving the information he needed.

Jobsnote Confirmed for WWDC

We all knew it was coming. How could it not? Steve Jobs' keynotes are the legendary, iWork-app defining, AOL Data Center crashing, prediction proliferating, rumor piling, blog bursting, universe denting tech events of our time. But now Apple has gone and made it all nice and official-like:

First Look: Schmap for the iPhone

First Look: Schmap for the iPhone

Ah, this isn't any ordinary map application. Sure it'll give you all the fun stuff that maps usually offer, but it also brings the iPhone's already unique controls to a whole 'nother level. Schmap for the iPhone is noteworthy because of its ability to take advantage of the accelerometer: portrait mode lists the attractions while rotating it to landscape mode displays the attractions on a googlemap-ified map.

AT&T Un-leaks: iPhone Black Taken Back?

AT&T Un-leaks: iPhone Black Taken Back?

AT&T giveth, and AT&T taketh away. Or so they say...

Hot on the heels of an apparent AT&T web glitch that everyone and their blogs assumed leaked something called the "iPhone Black", and some maybe corroboration from a UK accessory web store selling what looks like current gen stock under the "iPhone Black" label, reader Bad Ash points out that the Tilt (and maybe other handsets?) were also being listed as "Black", i.e. "Tilt Black".

HBO On Your iPhone, Capiche?

Yeah, Chrisey, hang on a minute, I'm conferencing in our mutual friend from Cupertino...

Hello? (Manage, this thing is easy to use!) Hello Stevie? Whoa, there he is... Stevie, It's me Tony. So what do I gotta do to get on this computer thing... this iTunes Chrisey here keeps telling me about?

No, me, I don't know nothing from nothing about it, but Chrisey tells me it's, you know, the next big deal, and we want our taste.

Yeah, I'm using one of your -- what do you call them -- iPhones right now. Never mind how I got it, fell off the back of a truck with 10,000 of its little friends we've already shipped to China, capiche? Let's talk content.
