CTIA: Bleh

CTIA: Bleh

Well, we've been walking the floor for about an hour, and... nothing. For an entertainment conference, there isn't much entertainment to be had. There will be more on that in a bit; I'm typing on my iPhone and I'm not about to tap out some gigantic Tolstoy-esque missive. The biggest news for iPhone users is probably weatherbug for the iPhone and iPod Touch. That news is almost a week old; that should give you an idea of the bleak nature of this conference.

CTIA Ballmer Keynote

CTIA Ballmer Keynote

We just finished watching the day 1 keynote by Steve Ballmer (Microsoft CEO), and Dieter has posted the details up on WMExperts.com. It was a fair keynote; Ballmer was better in person than I thought he would be. His stage voice and personality are both ridiculously brash.

Jobs on the iPhone User Interface

Jobs on the iPhone User Interface

There's a big article in the New York Times that includes an interview with Steve Jobs about the excellent shape that Apple's in nowadays. Apple is 3rd in computer shipments overall. They might slip to 4th when Acer buys Gateway after Gateway buys Packard Bell, but Apple will still have more growth than the resulting top three. The Times did an interview with Jobs, and he of course has some choice things to say about everything -- Leopard vs. Vista, Ultimate Editions, the iPhone's multitouch interface, the delays of Leopard, and the Newton.

Fantastic Walt Mossberg Rant: Carriers & iPhone

Fantastic Walt Mossberg Rant: Carriers & iPhone

Update: Of course, it goes without saying that Walt steals his best content from us. Case in point, Dieter ranted about this way back in February. Really, though, we're just glad that Walt (or at least Katie) is reading us on a regular basis.

Chemical Association Sides with Apple

Chemical Association Sides with Apple

The Bromine Science and Environmental Forum has blasted Greenpeace for their report of brominated flame retardants, or BFRs, in the iPhone. They lambast the report for its speculative nature:

"The Greenpeace report does not say which brominated flame retardants are present in the iPhone because it does not know. Therefore, the report speculates about what substances might be present, and raises an alarm without any basis for doing so."

Hacking iPhones: Big Update to Installer.app

1

Hacking iPhones: Big Update to Installer.app

If you've been hacking your iPhone to get 3rd party apps with firmware 1.1.1, there's now a big reward. Installer.app has been updated, and some long-needed changes have been made. First, instead of browsing the entire collection in one huge list, you now select a category, and then browse a smaller list. Under the previous system, as the list of 3rd party apps got longer and longer, the interface for finding and installing a program became more cumbersome. With the new system, the category splitting should make finding and installing apps a lot simpler to use. Also, it should do a great job of hiding dictionaries, theme packs, etc. into their own subcategories. If you've hacked your iPhone, this should appear as an update.

iPhone Developer Documentation

iPhone Developer Documentation

Erica Sadun, iPhone hacker extraordinaire and writer at The Unofficial Apple Weblog, has documented the entire set of Cocoa function calls required to program for the iPhone. These header files are used for programmers to properly create user interfaces, network code, and, well, pretty much everything. And the documentation effort is a massive job, usually not something to be done by just one person. I know that this site can get kind of wonky here and there, so I'll do my best to explain why this is important, but for everybody.

Phone Different Podcast #7

Phone Different Podcast #7

<

p>

Shocking you with a day early this time instead of a day late. For podcast 7 we talk about CTIAthe iPhone on Orange, possible unlock rumors, a product red version possibly coming, an SDK in february plus some widget speculation, some leopard speculation, webapps, and a brief hacking segment. And then, a bit on the iTunes plus price cut, Greenpeace, new Apple ads, and att.com making changes. And of course the usual chat about the community.

No less chock full of stuff than last week, but I managed to shave off a few minutes and keep us under 50 minutes. How did I do it? By shaving off the talks about Apple vs. gateway / acer / packard bell. Sharp listeners, look for the "I'm going to cut this" and Dieter being sad. I'll post it up later today.

iPhone is AT&T's Top Earner

iPhone is AT&T's Top Earner

Highlights from a report from a report by Strategy Analytics:

  • iPhone tops AT&T sales chart at 13% of AT&T's device sales
  • 4th best-selling phone in U.S., selling 1.1 million units. Total # of iPhones sold: maybe 1.325 million
  • based on current trajectory, iPhone will be #1 best-selling phone in the next quarter or two
  • current #1 is still the RAZR V3
  • two age segments standing out that are purchasing iPhone in droves: 20-30 and 50-60.
Having owned a RAZR and been frustrated with the poor software shipped on it, I will do a little dance when it's no longer #1.

Excellent Discussions on SDK

Excellent Discussions on SDK


figure 1: John Gruber

John Gruber of Daring Fireball has posted an excellent discussion on the various subtleties of the language used in Steve Jobs' iPhone SDK letter. He talks of HTML widgets vs. the stripped-down Cocoa API, the security of the current iPhone, the hidden compliment-slash-dig on Nokia and their recent "open to anything" marketing slogan, signed apps, the iTunes App store, and with his usual attention to detail and insight. Well worth the read there, like any long Gruber post.
