101 CookBooks Develops iPhone-Friendly Recipe Site

The folks at 101 Cookbooks have developed an iPhone-friendly versions of their website to better accommodate its native screen resolution (HVGA). Don't ask me why they thought it necessary given that Safari already enables full web browsing, negating the need for such "mobile web" content. Buy hey, who am I to argue.

eMusic Seduces iPhone Users with 35 Free Songs

Hey iPhone users, eMusic has your number! Well not exactly. They won't be calling you on your phone, but they are however giving away 35 free (yes, that's free as in beer) tracks for iPhone users who sign up for a trial membership of eMusic's popular music service. This offer is supposedly "no strings attached' meaning you can sign up, download your free tracks, then cancel and still keep my your music. Not that I endorse such behavior. Looks around nervously

Sign up now and they'll also throw in a free hat! No, sorry no hat either. I am such a tease today.

Apple Stores Will Offer 25 iPhone Accessories at Launch Time, and Drool Aprons

Apple Stores will be stocking an assortment of 25 available iPhone accessories this Friday during the big launch extravaganza. Most of these accessories are limited to cases and screen protectors, though I wonder if iPhone's screen even supports screen protectors at all. We'll have to wait for confirmation on that.

The company will also be offering its Bluetooth Headset for a hefty price of $129. Ouch!

Huge iPhone Displays Appearing in Apple and AT&T Stores, Terrorize Shoppers

Huge iPhone Displays Appearing in Apple and AT&T Stores, Terrorize Shoppers

Remember that mysterious iPhone display unit erected in the wee hours at the 5th Avenue Apple Store? Well they have cropped up everywhere now. Both Apple retail stores and AT&T Wireless stores are featuring these frightening iPhone displays that demonstrate iPhone features and threaten to abduct your children.

What impresses me most about these displays is the amount of money invested in development. However much these units cost to manufacture, it wasn't cheap I can tell you that. This illustrates the importace both companies place on this product.

More pictures (courtesy of MacRumors.com) after the jump.

AT&T Charging $175 Contract Termination Fee on iPhone

AT&T Charging $175 Contract Termination Fee on iPhone

From the Department of Highway Robbery comes word that AT&T will be impossing an additional $175 early termination fee for customers who back out of their contract. Ouch!

Granted, early termination sanctions are nothing new in the wireless industry. Many years ago I once had to pony up $300 to free myself from the shackles of Centennial Wireless (a carrier I recommend avoiding), so this is nothing new. But this story points out the unrestricted power that carriers extend over enslaved customers. Rather like our our government, wouldn't you say?

Hang on a sec, there's a knock at my door. Some nice gentlemen in a black van just pulled into my driveway. Be right back...

Apple Posts iPhone Guided Video Tour, Narrated by Steve Jobs Clone

Apple Posts iPhone Guided Video Tour, Narrated by Steve Jobs Clone

Apple has updated its iPhone product webpage with a new guided tour video, demoing the phone and its operation. This is the first official demo of the final software framework in action, but very little is revealed that we didn't already know. One thing that was finally made clear is the location and placement of the SIM tray on top of the device, which wasn't clearly visible in previous photos.

The scary part of the video is the Steve Jobs wannabe, wearing a black mock turtleneck with sleeves rolled up. He looked the part but failed miserably to use Steveisms like "Boom" and "wouldn't it be great.."

Giant Mystery iPhone Display At 5th Avenue Apple Store

AT&T Won't Be Taking iPhone Orders via Phone or Online, So Sayeth Sales Rep

AT&T Won't Be Taking iPhone Orders via Phone or Online, So Sayeth Sales Rep

More bad news, I'm afraid. Those of you who hoped to avoid the experience of camping out in front of AT&T Wireless stores by ordering the iPhone by phone or online are out of luck. I just spoke with a second AT&T sales rep who confirmed what a previous lackey told me; AT&T will only be selling iPhone to customers through their corporate stores on a first come, first served basis. No pre-orders, and no orders by phone or through the web.

The rep I spoke with did not know for certain how long this policy would continue, but hinted that it would go on well past June 29. So, bottom line - if you want an iPhone you must get in line, literally.

Isn't this fun? I'm thinking of becoming an alcoholic to pass away the time. Who wants to join me in a drink?

AT&T to Announce iPhone Data Plans on June 29, Bring Your Preparation-H

AT&T to Announce iPhone Data Plans on June 29, Bring Your Preparation-H

Along with the rollout of iPhone comes new data plan pricing, according to AppleInsider.

Meanwhile, Carter hinted that iPhone "may offer cool features such as unlimited Web browsing." However, customers should be prepared to pay extra for that luxury. "Regardless of which device you're using today, you pay us a certain amount for (voice) minutes, and you also pay us for data units," he said. "That is also true on the iPhone."

Wait, what? I already pay $19, on top of voice, for unlimited data, which includes all-you-can-eat web browsing. Is AT&T planning to further sodomize me with some form of premium iPhone-only data plan? In the words of the great Chinese philosopher, Confucius, "that's bullshit!".

[UPDATE:]Now AT&T is saying it will announce data pricing before launch day. Oh well, doesn't matter. The news won't be good. We're still getting screwed.
