Phone Different Week in Review, March 21, 2008

Every week I will be bringing you what I think are the week’s biggest stories and articles. Here we go!

Adobe Flash for iPhone

Would Adobe just make it for our beloved already? We started off the week with Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen hopes Apple's newly released SDK will help Adobe deliver that middle ground, with or without Jobs' blessing. The world was ecstatic, could this really be?

… Well, not so fast, a few days later there was a, um, clarification.

Can’t we all just get along, join hands, sing Kumbaya and make Flash happen?

More of our best stuff after the break!

Review: Seidio Inno Case for iPhone

The Seidio Inno Case for the iPhone ($32.95) is a very subtle case that manages to increase the functionality of the phone and enhance the user experience. The design is simple and understated and comes in colors such as blue, black, and burgundy. The case adds some flair but little to no bulk to your iPhone.

Trippin' With My iPhone - Wait-a-Thon

It doesn't have 3G. It doesn't have true GPS. It doesn't have instant messaging or 3rd party apps or even cut and paste. With all it's current shortcomings, the iPhone is still a worthy "Swiss Army Knife" of smartphones that you can confidently take with you through airport security, on a plane, and throughout your trip as an excellent traveling companion.

“We have many more requests than we can serve during this initial beta period, so we must limit the Program at this time. We plan to expand it during the beta period, and we will contact you regarding your enrollment status at the appropriate time. We appreciate your patience.”
