Phone Different Podcast #9

Phone Different Podcast #9

How quickly we've reached our 9th podcast! Amazing, simply amazing. Plenty of stuff to talk about in this podcast, and yet somehow we hit our time target. I should be injured from a "light-hearted" and "fun" game of "touch" football and Dieter should quit smoking for every podcast. Wish him success and support by sending us an email at podcast at phonedifferent dot com. Or call us and leave a message, that secretly pleases us more.

We had to up the bitrate again; something is different in how Leopard encodes MP3s or maybe GarageBand is exporting additional noise in Leopard or something -- the 1411kbps AIFF file sounds great, the 48kbps/60kbps podcast sounds like garbage. Maybe we're both just being more finicky about how the podcast sounds, but we're getting some weird artifacts, both with LAME encoding and iTunes encoding. So, we're letting this one out at a 80kbps bitrate. We've also been storing the art inside the individual MP3s; let us know if it shows up.

AT&T Drops EDGE Requirement

AT&T Drops EDGE Requirement

I don't know why AT&T dropped the EDGE requirement from the iPhone, but they did. If you want to save $20/month ($240/yr, $480/2 yrs) and skip the EDGE data and go wi-fi only, that's now your option. Doing so removes your ability to use visual voicemail and your rights to 200 free messages, but you can add a different SMS plan once EDGE is dropped. If I was to drop EDGE, I'd probably drop AT&T too -- I'd spend some of that money I'd be saving on breaking my contract and unlocking my iPhone.

iPhone Commercial

A story about iPhones on a plane, just like the commercial with the pilot, but without the happy ending. Any story that ends like this is not a happy story:

Jailbreak 1.1.2

Jailbreak 1.1.2

The jailbreak for 1.1.2 is still for the technically inclined and maybe not for the average Joe. But for those of you that are technically inclined, it now works on all platforms: Intel Mac, PowerPC Mac, and Windows. If you're running 1.1.2, you'll have to downgrade to 1.1.1 and then jailbreak with jailbreakme.com and perform some steps before you upgrade back to a jailbroken 1.1.2, but it's possible. You can find the update at conceited software.

O2s' iPhone: Best. Launch. Ever

O2s' iPhone: Best. Launch. Ever

Though neither O2 nor Carphone Warehouse have disclosed sales numbers beyond hundreds tens of thousands, O2 CEO Peter Erskine pronounced the iPhone their fastest-selling device ever. EVAR. On top of that, a full two-thirds of the iPhone customers came from other carriers, compared to 40% for AT&T in the U.S.

Apple Tracking You via IMEI

Apple Tracking You via IMEI

Okay, now this is a bit disturbing: XianLi of Hackint0sh.org proved that Apple tracks all stock and weather updates via your iPhone's IMEI. I have no idea why it would be necessary to track my weather habits, let alone the stocks I'm tracking.

Free Wallpaper Friday: Turkey Genocide Edition

Free Wallpaper Friday: Turkey Genocide Edition

Welcome, dear readers, to another exciting installment of Free Wallpaper Friday, where I pass out free images like candy from a parade float. And this week I'm loading you up with a double does of sugary sweet wallpapers with a Holiday theme. Enough to kill a diabetic.

If you were expecting turkeys and cornucopias, you're in for disappointment. I prefer more of a Christmas theme because frankly Thanksgiving is rather boring, and I'm sure that, like me, you'd rather stare a colorful Christmas tree on your iPhone screen rather than a Butterball Turkey? Am I right or am I right? Right then.

These aren't my best submissions, but there are a few good ones to choose from. I'm partial to the snowmen image myself. But I will be rolling out some really magnificent Holiday walls in weeks leading to up Christmas

Download them after the jump. Oh, and...you're welcome.

YouTube Doubleheader: iPhone and iPod Parodies

Here for your enjoyment is a Saturday Night Live sketch that spoofs Apple's current iPhone ads. The ad apparently went unaired, perhaps because NBC's lawyers wouldn't let them air a sketch that condones punching cops and the use of meth to stay sane. That's what makes it humor, I suppose. That or they ran out of time.

Here's a sketch from Mad TV that parodies Feist's 1234 song and it's newfound connection to Apple iPods.

What if You Posted a Troll and No One Replied?

What if You Posted a Troll and No One Replied?

Why, that would be the saddest thing in the whole wide world. C'mon folks, he says his XDA is better than the iPhone, and that Windows Mobile will surpass the iPhone's interface with the next release. Judging from all the typos and missed capitals, he even slipped it past his editor. C'mon, he just wants you to comment.
