Steve Jobs -- CEO of the Decade

Fortune Magazine has named Steve Jobs CEO of the Decade. The Apple co-founder, Apple II, Mac, iPod, iTunes, and iPhone visionary is summed up in suitably dramatic fashion:

Youthful founder gets booted from his company in the 1980s, returns in the 1990s, and in the following decade survives two brushes with death, one securities-law scandal, an also-ran product lineup, and his own often unpleasant demeanor to become the dominant personality in four distinct industries, a billionaire many times over, and CEO of the most valuable company in Silicon Valley.

iPhone Love Connections

iPhone Love Connections

So, you're an iPhone user -- what does that mean for your love life?

  • You prefer gadget lovers to the college educated
  • 1/3rd of iPhone users have dumped someone over SMS or email
  • 1/3rd said users of outdated gadgets were a turn-off
  • 1/5th admitted to using the iPhone to get their porn-on (twice as many as BlackBerry users)
  • 1/4th have dumped someone for using their own mobile too much.

So, iPhone users, are they painting a fair picture?

iPhone in China -- Only 5000 Served?

iPhone in China -- Only 5000 Served?

The iPhone finally went on sale in China last week, and according to Business Week, only 5000 appear to have been sold.

Scratch that. Do over. An overly expensive, Wi-Fi crippled version of the iPhone eventually went on sale in China, where over 2 million cheaper, unlocked, gray-market iPhones with functioning Wi-Fi have already been sold over the last couple years, and weren't found to be terribly competitive?

Apple Launches "Music Movies" on iTunes

Apple has launched a new sub-section of iTunes devoted to music movies. Why music movies? It seems like while iTunes sells a lot of music, they're not yet selling as much video and Apple seems to think they can use the music tie-in to promote the movies. (We'll spare you the iTunes LP-esque "and it will look great on an iTablet!" line this time. Whoops.)

iTunes 9.0.2 Offers 180+ iPhone App Management

iTunes 9.0.2 Offers 180+ iPhone App Management

Looks like Apple snuck a little something extra into iTunes 9.0.2 for iPhone and iPod touch users -- 180+ app management.

Instead of just mirroring the 11 visible iPhone 3.x Home Screens (with their maximum 180 app slots), iTunes will now let you add even more apps. These additional apps are displayed on grayed-out Home Screens (because they're not visible on the iPhone -- you have to use Spotlight Search to launch them), but in iTunes are otherwise easy to organize and remove.

Bell Mobility Canada GSM/HSPA Network Goes Live, Brings iPhone With It!

Bell Mobility has just announced that their new GSM/HSPA network, shared with previously-CDMA frenemy Telus, has gone live! What does that mean?
