Google Docs Now Supports iPhone, Other Mobile Devices. Kinda Sorta

We are one step closer to editing word documents on our iPhones today. Google is now offering a mobile format of Google docs, viewable on mobile devices. The bad news - it's Read-only mode, so no editing capabilities are available... yet. But at least you can access important docs while on the go, right from your iPhone, and that's something to cheer about. Right?

Apple Posts Three New TV Ads that Feature Self Promoting iPhone Users

What do an Airline pilot, Ballet dancer, and Broadway Theater producer all have in common? They all use iPhones and appear in Apple latest iPhone whoring ad campaign. But the tables are turned as the subjects plug their own ventures rather than focus soley on iPhone and how it impacst their lives. A commercial within a commercial?

Kristin Sloan, the sole female user in this trio, is the editor and founder of TheWinger.com - a site devoted to ballet dancing. Several seconds into the commercial she drops off the subject of iPhone and immediately draws attention to her site. Nice touch, very subtle. I thought this was a commercial promoting iPhone, not ballet dancing?

Greenpeace Files Suit Against Apple, Declares iPhone "Toxic"

Oh Greenpeace, can't you idiots just stick to rescuing dolphins or saving single-cell organisms? Today the colorful activist organization made good on its promise to sue Apple over toxic materials found in iPhone, and further seeks an injunction blocking the arrival of iPhone in Europe. If Greenpeace is successful, you boys and girls in Europe won't be getting an iPhone come November 9. One more at a time.

Jobs Announces SDK

Jobs Announces SDK

Steve Jobs has confirmed the rumor. It looks like this won't be just widgets -- it will be full, system-level native apps. It will be interesting to see how they perform this -- as the iPhone stands, everything is running in 'ring 0'. My guess is that they're going to have to redesign the iPhone to run in multi-user mode. That is, some things will be running as root, other things will be running as 'radio', and some things will be running as 'Mike Overbo', for example. From http://www.apple.com/hotnews/:

Breaking: Apple Announces iPhone SDK, Opens Platform for Software Developers! *faints*

Breaking: Apple Announces iPhone SDK, Opens Platform for Software Developers! *faints*

Charge the defibrillators, my heart just stopped. None other than Steve Jobs himself has officially announced that Apple will indeed open iPhone to native software development, and provide an SDK next February. Apparently plans were in the works to open the platform to developers all along (told you so) but Apple still hasn't figured a non-invasive procedure for allowing applications to run in OSX.

So, the good news is there is a God. The bad news is it's Steve Jobs.

Read his excellency's blessed scrawl after the break. Or go here to see the official announcement on Apple.com

AT&T Will Pro-Rate Termination Fee

AT&T Will Pro-Rate Termination Fee


figure 1: AT&T has made some changes to benefit customers out of enlightened self-interest.

In news that should please anyone on AT&T, and if you have an iPhone, odds are good that this is you, AT&T is making consumer-friendly changes to how they do things. First, AT&T announced that they will begin pro-rating termination fees. The longer you stay on in your contract, the less of a fee you'll have to pay. They also announced that they will not require a new contract for a simple change of service. Both are welcome changes.

The Money Trail: iPhone Sales and AT&T Kickbacks Drive Profitable Fourth Quarter for Apple

Apple's fiscal fourth quarter ended in September, and the bean counters in every investment firm are hard at work following the money trail, speculating on Apple's quarterly results. Bear Stearn analyst Andrew Neff, the man most well known for his crazy but prophetic predictions about the implosion and consolidation of the PC industry, believes that iPhone could be the start of something big. He tells investors that while deferred profit sharing with AT&T won't have an immediate impact on Apple's bottom line, he sees iPhone being a money machine, driving profits. Doesn't it warm your heart to read those words?
