Hacked iPhone Bonus Round

Download Files on iPhone's MobileSafari

If you've hacked your iPhone, there are a few banner apps that popped up last night. The first app comes from a hacker by the name of Hachu, and it allows you to download files via MobileSafari on the iPhone directly. The initial release appears to support only zip and tar files, but if you're comfortable adding .plist files, the thread is chock full of different MIME declarations to allow the plugin to download many different files to your iPhone's /var/root/Downloads folder. One of the key things I've been missing about the iPhone! [image credit]

iPhone France Update

iPhone France Update

French mobile carrier Orange reported that they've sold about 30,000 iPhones in the first five days of the iPhone launch. Half of the buyers are new customers. Orange's target for the first month is 50,000 to 100,000 so it looks like they'll be fine there. For next year, they're hoping for around 500,000 iPhone customers.

Round Robin: Palm OS, The King is Dead

Round Robin: Palm OS, The King is Dead

After a week of using the Treo 680, I have to say that it's pretty much the same as I remember it. I used the 680 as my primary phone for about half a year, and I've reviewed it twice already. I won't claim to be the most knowledgeable 680 user out there; that honor would certainly be bestowed to many, many users in our forum before I would even enter consideration for it. I've had a lot to say about Palm OS, generally favorable I suppose, but there are caveats. I've said as much in the TreoCentral TreoCast, but I've never had an opportunity like this one to really distill thirty podcasts and a few dozen hours of listening into a manifesto of what's good and what's bad about Palm OS, and what I really think about their Linux venture, and why Palm is on their current path.

When I say the King is dead, I don't mean that the 680 is a bad device, or that there's no reason to use Palm OS, or that anyone that uses it is dumb. Far from it, I think the 680 is pretty high up on my list. It's still a good phone. If I thought Palm OS was dumb or not relevant, I wouldn't do the TreoCentral TreoCast. It boils down to two things with Palm OS: the hardware and the software. The hardware will see updates. There will probably be more Palm OS GSM phones to come out. Better cameras, 3G, smaller form factors, the whole shebang. When it comes out, it will probably be a compelling upgrade for Palm OS users. But I don't think we'll see a significant software update for Palm OS in the next two years. While some may accuse that it's unfair to say "the king is dead" alluding to Palm OS, it's not accurate to say the king is alive, either. But still, there are always these persistent rumors about faked deaths and random sightings...

iPhone Overtakes Windows Mobile in Browser Usage. The Floor Mopping Begins

iPhone Overtakes Windows Mobile in Browser Usage. The Floor Mopping Begins

Agonizing abdominal pains are being felt across the globe today as the world laughs hysterically at Windows Mobile. According to a report posted by Net Applications, iPhone accounts for .09% of the overall browser market, leaving Windows Mobile choking on Apple's dust with .06%. Not a bad record for a device that's only been on the market for less than two consecutive sales quarters, and Windows Mobile is how many years old now? Oh the humiliation.

Cheer up, Windows fanboys. At least you beat out the T-Mobile Sidekick. And that's something to be proud of, right? Bwahahaha!

Visual Voicemail Sued

Klausner Technologies Inc. has filed a $360 million lawsuit against AT&T and Apple for allegedly violating two of Klausner's voicemail patents. Klausner has brought other people to task on the two patents in question before -- once for AOL, and once for Vonage. Klausner has also sued Apple before for patents pertaining to the long-gone Apple Newton; Apple ended up licensing the patents back then.

German Unlocked iPhones Gone

German Unlocked iPhones Gone

The unlocked German iPhones are no more -- the Judge for the Vodafone vs. T-Mobile lawsuit reversed the injunction that required T-Mobile to sell unlocked iPhones. And now that they don't have to sell the iPhone unlocked, they're not going to -- the unlocked iPhone is gone from Germany. The officially unlocked iPhone is still available in France for much less than it was in Germany anyway. Vive le revolution!

iPhone Web Stats

iPhone Web Stats

The iPhone edged out the entirety of all Windows CE-based devices in web usage according to data provided by Market Share at Hitslink.com. The iPhone came in at #10 with 0.09%, whereas Windows CE weighed in at 0.06% for #11. You read that, Dieter? We're #10! We're #10! The iPod on their list, which I'm forced to assume is the iPod Touch, shows up at around 0.01%. We're #10 and #20! We're #10 and #20!

Starbucks Button Reverse Engineered

Raffi Krikorian of Synthesis Studios wrote to inform me that they've reverse-engineered how the Starbucks button works. Most of the Starbucks shops out there aren't going to get the hookup with wi-fi for about a year. I asked them about it, and they'll be disclosing the process soon.

AT&T On List of Most Anti-Tech Companies...

AT&T On List of Most Anti-Tech Companies...

Mark Sullivan of PC World compiled a list of five technology groups that frequently conspired to be anti-consumer. That, or they were really just a bunch of jerks. Well, AT&T makes the list twice, showing up in the list for various groups they belong to at #3 and #4. Well, they kind of show up in #5 too -- #5 is a critique of most wireless carrier parties involved in the 700 MHz auction that Google's part of. What kept AT&T from being at #1 and #2? Big pharma and the recording industry. Not too shabby!

Apple / AT&T Spat? GOOG/AAPL 700Mhz?

Apple / AT&T Spat? GOOG/AAPL 700Mhz?

I'll admit to liking Robert X. Cringely of PBS. Sure, his theories are wild sometimes. But they're wild in a fun way, and he'll revisit things that he got wrong. He doesn't resort to trolling like some writers of his generation who happen to be friends of his, and when he does troll, it's against something that we all hate anyway, like our mobile phone carrier. He's a uniter, not a divider.
