CEOs Fiddle

There have been a lot of snarky comments about Apple in the press lately, usually from big media companies or other smartphone competitors. There are so many CEOs fiddling while Apple burns down their little walled cities, there's enough of them for an orchestra. Or at least a hoedown.

Round Robin: AT&T Tilt

Round Robin: AT&T Tilt

For the past few days, I've been working with the AT&T Tilt, a Windows Mobile smartphone. I've used Windows Mobile before, so this isn't quite the new experience that the BlackBerry Curve was, but I haven't used the latest version of Windows Mobile (version 6) either. I used WM5 with a Treo 750 for a while, but I ended up dealing with a bad bug that prevented calls from ringing. That was pretty much a killer for the device, and I stopped using it.

And that would be the end of the story, but for the Smartphone Round Robin. And here we are again.

Apple Making a Tablet PC?

Apple Making a Tablet PC?

An employee of Asus -- the company that builds many of Apple's laptops -- told CNET that they are making a tablet PC from Apple. It's apparently a brand new tablet design, not one that Asus has used before. The device could be introduced as early as January, at Mac World Expo 2008. Crave at CNET surmises that the tablet will take many OS cues from the iPhone, incorporating finger flicking, cover flow, and other gesture-based movements.

Voice Memos?

Voice Memos?

A savvy forum user over at MacRumors found some interesting new dialog box messages inside the new version of iTunes. These are probably the highlights:

"4320.082" = "The iPhone “^1” contains new voice memos. Would you like to move these voice memos to your iTunes library?";

"4320.073" = "Enabling the iPhone for disk use requires manually ejecting the iPhone before each disconnect, even when automatically syncing music.";

iTunes Store Ringtone Playlist for iPhone

iTunes Store Ringtone Playlist for iPhone

Apple has selected a bunch of songs that make for popular ringtones and placed them in an easy-to-find section of the iTunes store. I'm getting tired of my old custom alarm ringtone (I only made one) and I think it's time to wake up to something new.

Google's Android Will Terrorize Proprietary Platforms, But Won't Threaten Apple

Google's Android Will Terrorize Proprietary Platforms, But Won't Threaten Apple

Unless you've been pinned under a bus for the past 24 hours, you've no doubt witnessed the unfolding drama from yesterday's announcement by Google about its upcoming open mobile platform, dubbed Android. Opinions range from Android’s arrival heralding the end of the wireless world as we know it, to “Oh my God…targeted ads on a mobile phone!” This story isn’t particularly relevant to iPhone enthusiasts, but its impact will affect the handset industry as a whole. And being the smarty pants, know-it-all, Smartphone expert, tech talkin guy that I am, I couldn’t let this topic pass by without weighing in.

Mac611 Puts The Fun Back in Tech Support, Right From Your iPhone

Dave Merten from MacOSG informs me that he has created a new web app for iPhone that provides instant access to support guides right from your iPhone. It's called Mac611 (shouldn't that be 911?). Check it out for yourself, or better still... break your Mac and try to fix it using this service. I'm going to the tool shed now to get my sledgehammer.

iTunes 7.5 and Quicktime 7.3 Updates

iTunes 7.5 and Quicktime 7.3 Updates

We mentioned the release of iTunes and Quicktime in our podcast yesterday, but haven't provided any release notes. There's not a lot in terms of content for anyone deciding to update or not. Ambrosia reports that iToner still works -- though the initial update will wipe out iToner ringtones, you can easily sync them over. The iTunes doesn't touch a user's library file, so there shouldn't be any risk of anything. The QuickTime update includes improvements for converting video for the iPhone. Are you excited about this? Yah, me neither.

Google Phone: Android

Google Phone: Android

Google has announced Android, an open source Linux operating system designed to be very customizable by programmers. This isn't the GPhone, the long-rumored Google Phone. Google is not making any of the actual phones, just the software. Android joins the ranks of myriad Linux development attempts: the new pro-sumer Palm OS, Access Linux Platform, Trolltech's QTopia, OpenMoko, and others in Asia that are unknown to me.

iPhone 1.1.2 / UK O2 Details

iPhone 1.1.2 / UK O2 Details

Details of the iPhone's launch in the UK is spilling out rapidly, and O2 are making some last changes in preparation for iPhone's arrival. Their CEO granted an interview that gives a peek into Apple's carrier selection process. O2 has changed the way that they deal with limited "unlimited" plans -- they still limit them, but at least they will give users a warning before they punt people away. And lastly, UK gadget magazine tried out the iPhone for a while, and they have information about the 1.1.2, the upcoming firmware update and iTunes 7.5.

Round Robin: Adios, BlackBerry Curve

Round Robin: Adios, BlackBerry Curve

So, my time with the Curve has come to a close. It's a dirty little secret of the Smartphone Round Robin, but I'm glad that I got to use the iPhone again for a day. I airlifted the 8310 Curve off to Jennifer of TreoCentral, and Kevin is shipped me the Windows Mobile-based AT&T Tilt. I got to keep my SIM card firmly seated in the iPhone for a full day!

It's been an interesting week with the Curve, but the limitations of it started to wear pretty thin on me as the week progressed. Once the newness of the curve wore off, I started eyeing my iPhone a lot more. I've been looking forward to shipping the Curve off so I could use my iPhone. Looking to the future, I began -- shudder to think -- looking forward to the Tilt. But there are some strong redemptive features to the platform.

Apple Protecting iPhone Trademark

Apple Protecting iPhone Trademark

Apple Legal has been busy in the past few days. Apple has officially begun protecting their iPhone Trademark. MY iTablet -- once MYiPhone -- changed their name on the advice of Jobs himself. And it appears that some of the other blog sites have now received contact letters from Apple lawyers.

In the U.S. system of intellectual property law, if you don't actively protect your copyrights and trademarks, you lose them. Apple has to do this. I'm sure Apple isn't excited about taking iPhone community sites to court, but they have to do what they have to do.
