iPhone SIM Hack?

Wow. Just... wow. It's a mobilewhack day, apparently. They found this video of a person demoing a SonicSIM card 1.0, which shows a person doing some SIM hackery on a jailbroken iPhone. Their method involves cutting the gold parts of your normal SIM card and putting them into a different shell which you then put into your iPhone. It may or may not be legitimate, I don't really know and can't really tell. Here's why:

iPhone Home Speaker Dock

iPhone Home Speaker Dock

This is a nice speaker dock system. It was designed by a team of folks that includes former Apple design guru Robert Brunner, who was around during the Newton years. It's a nice-looking piece of kit. There's no price yet, as this is a mockup or prototype of some sort. If they make it affordable it will sell like hotcakes. It's apparently being unveiled at CES in a few weeks.

Duh: Kids Want iPhone

According to the answers to questions posed of 1175 people surveyed by Peanut Labs, a bunch of 'Generation Y' kids are hot to trot for the iPhone action. The most popular mobile on the holiday present list is the iPhone, and Apple is on the list of top brands (which were Apple, HP, Nintendo, and Amazon). Another interesting nugget is that those kids figured to spend $300 on gadgets this holiday season.

N95 to iPhone Comparison

Here's a quick N95 vs. iPhone video feature showdown. As you can see above, Dieter of WMExperts confirms he's begun using the Nokia N95 as the little mini-extension to the Smartphone Round Robin. There were a lot of calls for us to try something with Symbian. I hope we give it a full turn the next time around.

Garage Band Update Brings Ringtones

Garage Band Update Brings Ringtones

Some of the best news that I'll hear all day. If you're using the latest version of iLife and apply the GarageBand update (version 4.1.1), you get the ability to create and edit custom ringtones. They've posted up a set of instructions over at apple.com for anyone to peruse. The blurb you see in Software Update is terse but to the point:

iPhone <3 Exchange?

iPhone <3 Exchange?

With the original iPod, sales didn't take off until the iPod was made compatible with Windows. If you believe the stats from the polls from AppleInsider, sales for the iPhone won't take off until it's compatible with Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft's popular groupware server for small and medium businesses. And lo! Apple has posted a job listing for someone capable of adding Outlook and Exchange functionality to the iPhone.

Hacked Emulator Apps Roundup

Hacked Emulator Apps Roundup

There are a bunch of nice 3rd party apps cropping up for hacked iPhones. I haven't been posting them individually since I'm not sure who out here really has use for a SCUMM or AGI interpreter, but I can hide morsels like that inside of bigger articles. I love seeing hacked apps come through that really deliver on the gaming promise of the iPhone.

Two New iPhones Next Year?

So David Bailey of Goldman Sachs, they do a report that says Apple will be making two iPhones next year. One of the iPhones will just be a storage bump, and it will be available in the first half of the year. The other iPhone supposedly will be a newer design, with maybe a new form factor and look and maybe not. He says the new iPhone design...

Officially Unlocked iPhones Not Unlocked?

Officially Unlocked iPhones Not Unlocked?

UPDATE: this rumor has been proven false by iLounge as of 12/14/2007.

According to a breaking story at CNet site iPhone Atlas, the unlocked iPhones that are available via France's Orange network are not actually fully unlocked. Apparently the "unlocked" iPhones will only work with SIM cards from other French carriers -- one could not, for example, put a T-Mobile, AT&T, or Rogers SIM card in it; only with a carrier that operates in France.

iPhone GPS Hopes Dashed

iPhone GPS Hopes Dashed

The iPhone + TomTom GPS rumor from yesterday has been quashed. Eagle-eyed MacRumors reader thecreativ1 noted the resemblance to an earlier iPod Video fake that was hoaxed; the extra blurriness, and all.

"Don't you guys remember the big hoax about the "real" video iPod??? About how weeks later the guys showed a screencast about how he made the fake....

"Well I do, and the barcode sticker on the tomtom dongle looks an awful lot like the barcode sticker on this notorious fake..."

Round Robin Roundup

Round Robin Roundup

The Smartphone Round Robin contest is over. Here are our last thoughts and responses about the the iPhone. After the break are the winners of the contest and the bulk of the article.

I'd like to say that the Smartphone Round Robin was an excellent idea. It was a lot of work, too, but hopefully it ends up being something useful for those of you that followed it while it was going on, or to anyone that ends up here long after this moment has passed.

And if you're not ready to say goodbye to the round robin just yet, we'll all be chatting about the round robin for the Mobile Computing Authority podcast tomorrow, that podcast should be available next week.
