Apple's Joswiak: "We're Awesome"

Apple's Joswiak: "We're Awesome"

The title doesn't give an exact quote, but if I was to say there's a gist to this interview, that would be it. CNN Money.com Fortune interviewed Apple's Greg Joswiak, who is in charge of marketing for iPhones and iPods. As is almost always the case with an interview like this, he doles out the money quotes like Michael Jordan sticks out his tongue. Some of it we've heard before -- they want to take time to make sure everything is going alright, and there isn't really any new news, just that it's presented in more detail than before:

Rare Find: Relevant Press Release

Rare Find: Relevant Press Release

It's an increasingly rare day when a press release finds its way to my inbox that's actually relevant to me or anyone that uses an iPhone. But, goosync.com has done it. They have a product that syncs your iPhone with Google's online calendar. It's a Windows-only app and it requires Outlook with a plugin, but if you were looking for a way to sync the Google to your iPhone, there's a way to do it.

"A synchronisation application is not yet available for the Apple iPhone. However, it is still possible to synchronise the device with GooSync by using the Funambol Outlook Plugin. [....] A GooSync client for the Apple iPhone is planned for release in Q1 2008."
I don't know why you would, but if you need the press release, it's after the break.

iBlitzkrieg: Unlocked iPhones Go On Sale in Germany

Germans. You think you're all so smart with your pickled cabbage, exotic sausages, fine Pilsners and now UNLOCKED iPhones? For just a few hundred Euros, you can waltz over to a computer, dock your iPhone, pay an unlocked premium fee through iTunes, and enjoy the privilege of using your iPhone on any wireless carrier you choose.

Well that's all well and good, but just remember we Americans still poses the worlds most egomaniacal corporate CEO, Steve Jobs. Top that!

God, Why Dost Thou Hate Me So?

God, Why Dost Thou Hate Me So?

God hates me. Nothing else can explain my recent steady string of bad luck. My plans to devote free time to writing, and my entire holiday, were derailed by a bout with food poisoning...or stomach flu (it's not clear which is the culprit). While most of you were enjoying vast portions of poultry, piled on plates, and devouring drumsticks, I was in bed convalescing. I was struck down Wednesday evening and didn't fully recover until late Saturday, and by that time my only goal was to salvage what was left of Thanksgiving. On the bright side, illness provided a way of avoiding family. Hallelujah!

Treo 680 First Looks All Over Again

Treo 680 First Looks All Over Again

I think that I've been lucky with all of the phones that I've reviewed in the Smartphone Round Robin. I think there's a proper order. I began with the device furthest away in mentality to the iPhone, the BlackBerry Curve, and it was a fine device. I missed having a touchscreen, but it was a good device. Then, I got to use the Tilt for a week, and that was actually another good device -- very powerful with its touchscreen, and it has a form factor at least in parts reminiscent of the iPhone, though maybe without some of its ease of use. And last, I get to review the Treo, which is in many ways the closest of all of the phones we'll review to the iPhone. Did you know that iPhone owners were 7 times more likely to have used a Treo (or Sidekick) than any other phone?

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.
