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.

Google Phone Not a Threat to iPhone


figure 1: Gene Munster. Gene, I didn't mean to treat you bad.

The Google mobile phone operating system known as Android has been getting a lot of press lately, and one of the more interesting angles I've seen in the past few days is that Android isn't meant to compete with the Apple iPhone. Gene Munster, an oft-quoted analyst at Piper Jaffray with plenty to say about the iPhone, thinks that the iPhone is aimed at a much higher market than any phones built with Google's Android.

Not So Fast, Comrade. Delays Face Chinese iPhone. Rioting Begins In Tienanmen Square

Not So Fast, Comrade. Delays Face Chinese iPhone. Rioting Begins In Tienanmen Square

I post a story about iPhone coming to Commiland, and now Reuters steps in with news that iPhone's arrival in China may be delayed by technical (read: Political) and fee (read: money under the table) issues. The gist of this delay centers around iPhone being locked, as apposed to Chinese phones which are unlocked and portable to any GMS carrier. Does anyone else besides me feel utterly ashamed and embarrased that communist mobile phones enjoy more freedom and liberty than our capitalist phones?

Maybe this Communism thing isn't so bad after all... Capitalist pig!

MakeFreeiPhoneRingtone Works with 1.1.2

MakeFreeiPhoneRingtone Works with 1.1.2

If you're running iTunes 7.5 with an iPhone running 1.1.2, making custom ringtones is drop-dead simple again. All you need to do is download a new copy of MakeiPhoneRingtone and you're pretty much back in business. The only catch is that you need to edit your AAC files to 40 seconds or less. For that, the makers of the freeware app MakeiPhoneRingtone hope you pick Fission, their not-as-free audio editor. Maybe this is the carrot I was talking about yesterday to get people to think about upgrading to 1.1.2.

Opening The iPhone Blog to Volunteers. I Want Your Feedback, and Your Wallet

Opening The iPhone Blog to Volunteers. I Want Your Feedback, and Your Wallet

Unlike most professional bloggers, I have a real job (snap!). I work as a self-employed freelance web designer and creative professional. A job that consumes most of my available time that would otherwise be devoted to writing. Since this site was incepted I have run it, literally, with one hand and four fingers tied behind my back. Each post I write is done with one remaining pinky finger, in the span of whatever free minutes I can spare each hour or afternoon. Even as time deprived as I am, I still managed to make this blog one of the most popular iPhone enthusiast destinations on the internets. Not a bad achievement for one person, but still woefully inadequate.

iPohen Kyeobard Erorr Raets: Esaily Duobel

A study has been performed about the error rates of mobile keyboards. The three keyboards picked were the iPhone virtual software keyboard, QWERTY keyboards (like those on BlackBerries and Treos), and T9 numeric keypads. iPhone users erred at a rate of 5.6 errors per message, T9 users erred at a rate of 2.6 errors per message, and QWERTY users erred at a rate of 2.1 errors per message. The test was done with 20 folks in each group, and the iPhone owners had to have used their device for at least a month to qualify as eligible.

There are some doozies in the press release:

New iPhone Emulator: GameBoy Advanced

New iPhone Emulator: GameBoy Advanced

There's a new Nintendo emulator for the iPhone. Beyond the venerable NES.app Nintendo emulator, there's now the GameBoy and GameBoy Advanced emulator named gpSPhone for the iPhone., made possible by some of the same folks that brought you NES.app. I'm guessing you can expect gpSPhone to mature fairly quickly.. There are limitations, you have to supply your own boot ROM, you have to hack your iPhone first, and sound support is iffy at best, and you definitely have to install it to /Applications, but those are meager gripes about a software emulator at version 0.0.5.

More Jobs Going to China. Steve Jobs, That is

China Mobile Ltd., the country's largest state run cell phone carrier, claims that it is in talks with Apple to bring iPhone to the land of cheap labor and censorship sometime next year. No agreement has yet been reached...so why bother making the announcement?

It's only fitting. American jobs are being exported to China, so why not Steve Jobs? Get it...Steve Jobs, American Jobs? Heh? Oh never mind.

Apple Keeps Giving Quotes to Pocket Lint

Apple continues to grant interviews to pocket-lint.co.uk, and there are some good quotes in there. These money quotes sum up the essential approach to their work on the iPhone and how it's like a little zen garden. A walled zen garden, to be sure -- there are some things that you just can't do that don't make any sense, but a zen garden nonetheless. More on that later. Anyway, to the quotes:

1.1.2 Officially Released Last Night

1.1.2 Officially Released Last Night

Here I had thought that Apple released it on Friday, in conjunction with their european iPhone launch. No, they officially launched it Monday night, to little fanfare. Again, there isn't much to this update. It closes the TIFF vulnerability that allows people to easily hack their iPhones at jailbreakme.com, that's about it.

My understanding of feature updates is this: Apple has to dangle the carrot to make official firmwares more compelling than unofficial, hacked firmwares. Are iTunes charging icons and international keyboards going to cut it?
