EfkSoft Unveils iPhoneRingToneMaker, Custom Ringtone editor

Tunji Afonja from Efiko Software informs me that he has created a new custom ringtone application that enables iPhone users to roll their own ringtones, bypassing Apple's lame default set of barely audible tones. Thank God someone developed this software. The Marimba sound is getting on my nerves!

UPDATE: Matt Miller has posted a walkthrough video showcasing the features of iPhoneRingtoneMaker.

Texterity Puts Mobile Magazines at Your Fingertips

Texterity Puts Mobile Magazines at Your Fingertips

An online media service called Texterity delivers mobile editions to popular print magazines right to your iPhone, via Safari. In a nutshell, what Texterity does is simply digitize each print magazine page, turning it into an image file that can then be displayed and viewed within Safari much like a photo. Just point your browser (from the iPhone) to http://iphone.texterity.com/magazines/. Tap on any magazine that you like and a fully illustrated thumbnail library appears, representing pages from the selected magazine. Using the "Pinch" gesture, allows you to zoom and drag any portion of the document, making it readable. Believe it or not this is a workable solution. I've tried it myself.

C|Net Compares Apples to Oranges, With iPhone vs.Nokia N95 Shootout

C|Net Compares Apples to Oranges, With iPhone vs.Nokia N95 Shootout

I don't know about you, but I just can't get enough of pointless product comparisons. It's like watching a building burn to the ground. They have a certain hypnotic effect that seizes your attention and keeps you fixated on each biased point. So it comes as no surprise when major media companies engage in lame attempts to grab our eyeballs with idiotic iPhone vs. insert something here as a way of generating ad revenue. Hey, someone has to click on those Google ads to keep the lights on.

Apple Sold 270,000 iPhones Within First 30 Hours of Launch, Spends 1.2 Billion in Sidewalk Cleanup Costs

Apple Sold 270,000 iPhones Within First 30 Hours of Launch, Spends 1.2 Billion in Sidewalk Cleanup Costs

Yesterday's earnings report from Apple contained several nuggets of information sure to make any wall street jokey salivate. For starters the company posted yet another record breaking profit-heavy quarter - the folks in Cupertino are celebrating over that, I'm sure. Sales of iPods are flatlining. And over 270,000 iPhones were sold within the first 30 hours, starting on June 29. This throws a glass of iCe water in the face of AT&T's report disclosing that only 146,000 were activated over the weekend of iPhone's launch - news that put many analysts on anti-depressants.

Harry Potter Surpasses iPhone on Buzz Meter, Analysts Worried (Again)

It was bound to happen eventually. Now the long lines of techno fetishists waiting in front of Apple Stores to buy a phone have been replaced by lines of creepy 40 year olds dressed as wizards, standing in front of bookstores to buy a children's book.

Analysts Disappointed with Early iPhone Activation Numbers from AT&T, Blame Global Warming

Analysts Disappointed with Early iPhone Activation Numbers from AT&T, Blame Global Warming

AT&T doused analyst's wild expectations yesterday by announcing that on the weekend of launch, AT&T saw just 146,000 iPhone activations, well short of expectations. That's activation, not actual sales. Analysts had projected that during the same period more than 500,000 iPhones had sold through. Needless to say these two numbers don't jive, leading many firms like Piper Jafrey to question how successful iPhone sales really are.

I had the same reaction when taking my dog to go potty this morning. After feeding him an entire bag of Puppy Chow, I expected far more substantial return. Instead the results were weak and disappointing. As a result, I am placing both my dog and iPhone on eBay.

First 3rd Party App: Hello, World

First 3rd Party App: Hello, World

The iPhone Dev wiki team ran the first 3rd party application on the iPhone. The program is a simple one, it spits out "Hello, World" when run; 'Hello, World' is typically one of the simpler things to program on most platforms and that it was chosen as the 1st app is unsurprising. Here's the notice they posted on their site:

Apple To Add New iPhone Models and Grow Product Line This Holiday?

Apple To Add New iPhone Models and Grow Product Line This Holiday?

Santa is watching you. Well Steve Jobs is anyway. AppleInsider says that Apple will introduce new iPhone models in Q4, hoping to expand its Smartphone line.

Extremely reputable sources have told AppleInsider in recent weeks that the company's iPhone roadmap for the 2007 calendar year includes not one but two distinct models, the second of which is set to turn up just months after the first. According to one source, development of the second model has followed so closely on the heels of the inaugural iPhone that it was making its final pass through engineering around the same time that today's model hit the manufacturing lines back in May or early June.

Apple Developing Lyrics Display for iPhone

AppleInsider reports that Apple has filed a patent on technology used to dynamically display text, such as song lyrics, in a motion perspective. The text would scroll or otherwise move across the display, adapting to user interaction. Hmm...sounds a bit like CoverFlow, doesn't it?

Apple Could Beat Windows Mobile, And So Could Your Mother

Apple Could Beat Windows Mobile, And So Could Your Mother

InfoWorld's Oliver Rist (no relation to Charles Dicken's character) thinks that Microsoft needs to scramble its developers to fix and improve Windows Mobile before Apple eats their lunch.

Windows Mobile may have all the paper advantages — openness, Microsoft app compatibility, a great price, and loads of third-party support — but if users can't rely on it out there in the wild, woolly, and unsupported field, none of that means very much.

The article has more of a pro-Microsoft slant, designed to illustrate what Micorosft needs to fix with its mobile platform in order to slam the door in Apple's face. Still worth a morning read.

From the Department of Obvious Trends Comes This Newsflash: iPhone to Spur Mobile Video

Ring *ring

Hello? Barnes? Ah, good, I reached you. Listen old chap, I've just been glancing over the newswire coming across my teletype and apparently this so called iPhone thing seems to be causing quite a stir. Yes, quite.

This website claims that some commoners may even watch video on the bloody thing. Yes, rubbish...that's what I thought as well, but apparently it's quite true. What? No, no I don't want one. I still don't believe there is anything to this whole notion of mobile communications. It's a mere fad, nothing too it really. Give me a good landline connection and a Padilla cigar any day. Must run along now. Ta!
