Google Apps Prettied Up for iPhone

Google Apps Prettied Up for iPhone

Here at Smartphone Experts we use gmail for our main email and also use Google Apps Premier for our documents. Looks like we can add to the list of things that the iPhone excels at, business-wise: Google Apps. That list, by the way, is coming up shortly as a Wait-a-Thon post.

Meanwhile, if you, like us, use Google for business, your iPhone is now a great tool for that business:

Cringely: Apple to Buy Adobe, Gruber: Cringely's Nuts

Like a moth to a flame or a Blackberry addict to email, I am drawn once again into the train wreck that is Flash on the iPhone. This time it's courtesy one Robert X. Cringely, and it's a brain bender!

AT&T discontinues free Wi-Fi for iPhone users?

AT&T discontinues free Wi-Fi for iPhone users?

According to reports submitted to MacRumors, users are no longer able to access free Wi-Fi at Starbucks and Barnes & Nobles Locations.

I am sure this is due to a “beta” phase for AT&T to test connectivity. Once wind got out that people are accessing it, they stopped. The fact that AT&T is even doing this is really cool; it adds value to the AT&T proposition for their mobile service.

Not evil twin to Phone Different Week in Review, not an invasion by Fake Steve, This Week in Smart Phone Schadenfreude brings you all the feel-better news you need about the smartphone world outside Apple's current media dominator.

Gizmodo Smash... er... Doubt Puny 3G iPhone Pics Leak!

Gizmodo Smash... er... Doubt Puny 3G iPhone Pics Leak!

Real? Fake? Really fake? We don't know yet, but Gizmodo is joining the growing crowd of logo distorted, cheesy-photoshop artifact'ed, no way this thing got within 100 miles (how far is Redmond again?) of Jonathan Ive, doubters.

While the accessory makers may have struck them some gold on the specs-side, it's looking increasingly like our French compatriots were either duped, or helped consipire up some duping. Merde indeed:

Adobe to Make Flash More Open, Apple to Care?

Confession: I'm suffering from extreme PFSD (Posting about Flash Stress Disorder). All this "will it" "won't it" "please don't let it" blog-pong has me cowering beneath my laptop. But I believe in facing my fears, real and absurd, so let's see what Ars Technica has to report:

Phone Different Week in Review May 2, 2008

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

It feels so good…

Is Apple adding some sort of haptic feedback to the iPhone? How would they do it. What is haptic feedback anyway?

You Control, iControl…

Could Apple be working on an app for the iPhone that would enable it to control an Apple TV and iTunes? It sounds to good to be true!

3G Rumor Smashers: Gruber on $200 iPhones

3G iPhone Photo?

3G iPhone Photo?

Check out this Translated version of http://www.iphon.fr/ - it looks very close to the iPhone 3G dimensions we told you about yesterday. The shots are anonymous, unverified, etc etc. They could be face, but they sure don't look it based on the fact that we can see evidence of real use (scratches) and based on the general un-photoshopped-appearance of the images.

It's certainly still iPhone-esque, but to my eyes looks a little more like a generic smartphone than I'd prefer. What do you think? Legit? Good-looking?

Top 10 Reasons the iPhone is Incomparable - Wait-a-Thon!

Top 10 Reasons the iPhone is Incomparable - Wait-a-Thon!

[Ed: We're bringing back the Wait-a-Thon and making it regular again. Sorry we dropped it off there for awhile, folks. With all those 3G and iPhone 2.0 rumors flying about these past couple of weeks, it almost felt like the release was already here. In the meantime, comment on any post tagged "Wait-a-Thon" for your chance to win a $100 iTunes Gift Card!]

This is not a response to Crackberry.com's excellent article, Top 10 Reasons Why the iPhone Is NO BlackBerry. Quite frankly, the iPhone doesn't need a response; it's the rest of industry that's so desperately trying to find one to the iPhone.

I don't know about you, but it's getting more than a little tiring hearing everyone compare themselves to -- and constantly try to rip-off -- the iPhone. I can't surf a website or cruise the main without some claw-handed Crackberry addict, neck-bearded Palm artifact, or frazzle-haired WinMob frustrati glaring and frothing with barely-contained envy at the perfectly balanced, seamlessly integrated, lustfully convergent iPhone held ever-so casually in my grip.

They know the iPhone is beyond cool. Sure, they cling to their once innovative, formerly revolutionary (at least in the case of Palm and RIM) devices, the ones overwhelming nostalgia or massive business infrastructure investment won't let them slam to the ground and stomp into the call-dropping, web-mangling, constantly crashing oblivion they so richly deserve.

So the comparisons to the iPhone just won't stop, despite the fact that the iPhone is pretty much incomparable. Don't believe me? I've got ten reasons to back me up. And these aren't minor feature gripes or personal peccadilloes. In proper Apple fashion, these are just 10 simple little words...

3G Rumors: Next Gen Gaming Going Hardcore?

3G Rumors: Next Gen Gaming Going Hardcore?

Apple Insider's Prince McLean, whose pieces often seem.. ahem... Roughly Drafted... brings us an in depth look for what we might see in the next generation, 3G iPhone, and in a word, it's hardcore.

McLean begins with a profile of Imagination's Open GL ES 1.1, PowerVR MBX that powers the current iPhone (and many other mobile devices), and then gets into the next generation, 2.0, PowerVR SGX -- which brings the shaders, and the VDX core with its mobile HD video codec.

Tip O' The Week: Fingertip Tricks for Scrolling

Tip O' The Week: Fingertip Tricks for Scrolling

Once I finally trained myself to no longer reflexively reach for a stylus on my iPhone, it truly hit me that the world was at my fingertips (warning: pun alert). Flipping through photo albums with the flick of my finger just doesn't get old. Pinching text and photos to fit on the screen or expanding the same with my thumb and index finger was intuitive from the time my iPhone came out of the box.

I like the little things, like tapping the very top of the screen to return to the top of a web page after scrolling down for miles. Conversely, it would be nice to have a similar mechanism for instantly jumping to the bottom, eh?
