COOh-Snap: Apple Competitors Still Trying to Catchup to Original 2007 iPhone 2G

COOh-Snap: Apple Competitors Still Trying to Catchup to Original 2007 iPhone 2G

During Apple's Q4 2009 financial results conference call today, when asked about competitive smartphone platforms and devices, Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook responded:

Frankly, they are really just trying to catch up with the 1st iPhone that was announced 2 years ago

While many will no doubt argue -- perhaps laugh outright -- at that, it's harder to laugh at Apple's results: 7.2 million more iPhones sold in the last 3 months, and half-a-billion more App Store downloads during the same period.

So was Cook just showing his swagger, setting himself up for a big takedown, or comfortably settling into a combined iPhone/iTunes/App Store offering his thinks will be tough to beat in the consumer market?

Mozilla Working on iPhone App. Don't Hold Your Breath for Firefox

Mozilla Working on iPhone App. Don't Hold Your Breath for Firefox

This weekend GigaOm brought word that Mozilla was working on an iPhone app. Of course, thoughts turn immediately towards their most famous product -- Firefox. However, Apple doesn't allow 3rd party code interpreters and that means no Gecko HTML renderer and no TraceMonkey Javascript engine. And again, I don't think there's any need for Mozilla to make a WebView wrapper...

So what else is there? Browser link sync? The iPhone will sync Safari links, or Internet explorer on Windows, but syncing links for Firefox users is thus far unsupported, and no doubt many would love to have that functionality:

Quick App: Wolfram Alpha Computational Knowledge Engine for iPhone

Wolfram Alpha [$49.00 - iTunes link] for iPhone (and iPod touch) is the "computational knowledge engine" made mobile. While the website is (currently?) free, the iPhone app is decidedly not. But is it worth the premium price? Christian Warren from Mashable says:

Quick Look: Dark Horse and Gelaskins Brings Buffy-grade Protection to Your iPhone

Quick Look: Dark Horse and Gelaskins Brings Buffy-grade Protection to Your iPhone

Dark Horse Comics, purveyors of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8, Angel, Hellboy, among other licensed and creator-owned fare have teamed up with Gelaskins to produce a series of comic and pop-art inspired protective coatings for your iPhone, iPod touch, and laptop.

They were kind enough to send TiPb a sample of the Buffy and Hellboy iPhone 3GS skins, and the art was bold and beautiful, and the product every bit as good as I've come to expect from Gelaskins (I've been using them for a long time, as some may have noticed, seeing my iPhone 3G with Dragon backing in many of our videos last year).

UPDATED: Verizon Attack Ads -- Claim iPhone iDoesn't do What Android 2.0 Droid Does

UPDATED: Verizon Attack Ads -- Claim iPhone iDoesn't do What Android 2.0 Droid Does

UPDATE: TiPb asked a few non-geek friends and most of them didn't even realize Verizon was targeting the iPhone in these ads (some thought the commercial was saying whatever device they were talking about didn't do the things listed). Is that an ad-failure, or was it deliberately targeting geeks?

Secondly, Sacha Seagan over at Gearlog brings up the now apparently dual, and now opposite meaning behind "open application" buzzwords - a device totally controlled by Verizon.

Thirdly, does the push for the Droid explain why Verizon seemingly buried the BlackBerry Storm2 announcement?

App Review: iGo My Way 2009 – North America

App Review: iGo My Way 2009 – North America

(iGo My Way 2009 – North America For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!)

iGo My Way [$79.99 - iTunes link] is the fourth turn-by-turn app I have reviewed. As with the other three, I have used the app around town as well as planning for a long trip (the same trip I have taken with the others). It generally suggested very reasonable routes, it had the vast majority of POI’s that I was looking for (in fact, I don’t recall a single instance where I couldn’t find something). So how did it compare in the long distance travel?
