10% of Microsoft Employees Secretly Using iPhones?

10% of Microsoft Employees Secretly Using iPhones?

Much to the chagrin of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Devices and Entertainment honcho Robbie Bach, the Wall Street Journal reports that even publicly stomping on employee iPhones hasn't stamped them out:

Nearly 10,000 iPhone users were accessing the Microsoft employee email system last year, say two people who heard the estimates from senior Microsoft executives. That figure equals about 10% of the company's global work force.

TomTom updated to 1.3 now with Google Local Search!

TomTom updated to 1.3 now with Google Local Search!

The AT&T Navigator app and TomTom for my two favorite GPS solutions; TomTom just took the lead with this most recent update.

One of the benefits of the AT&T Navigator app was the ability to search real-time and navigate to a location via the web. Now, TomTom is bringing us that functionality via Google Local Search, and more! Here is a list in the most rescent update, 1.3:

  • Real-Time traffic- The best traffic information available today (an additional $19.99)
  • Google Local Search- Access the latest listings from within TomTom
  • The Latest Maps- The most accurate map
  • Music Fading- Instead of music pausing, it fades when navigation is spoken
  • Automatic Day/Night Mode- TomTom now calculates the sunrise and sunset and changes the map accordingly
  • Add Locations- From other apps and websites

It is disappointing that the traffic component costs an additional $19.99, but to me the Google Search alone is worth this update. Check out some pics after the break!

Apple's Claim to the Letter "i" - Rejected

Apple's Claim to the Letter "i" - Rejected

Apple's claim to the letter "i" has come to a screeching halt as a trademarks tribunal has rejected the company's bid to stop a small company from using their favorite letter of the alphabet.

This particular company wanted to name it's cases for Apple products DOPi, which is iPod spelled backwards. Apple's argument was that the DOPi name resembled their own products too closely and that it had potential to confuse consumers that they were purchasing a Apple product.

Goodbye iPad Mute Switch, Hello iPad Orientation Lock Switch

Goodbye iPad Mute Switch, Hello iPad Orientation Lock Switch

Something has changed on Apple.com's revamped iPad specs page -- the mute switch is gone and in its place, a physical hardware button for "screen orientation lock". That's right, now you can sit or lounge without fear of the iPad spinning around willy-nilly every time you shift one way or 'tother. However, you can't quickly turn the sound off. (We're guessing you're supposed to hold down the volume rocker for that function now).

Apple.com Adds iPad to Menu, iPod and iTunes Now Separate

Apple.com Adds iPad to Menu, iPod and iTunes Now Separate

iPod + iTunes is dead on the Apple.com menu, long live iPod | iPhone | iPad | iTunes. (And yes, Mac is still there too).

The all new iPad section coincides with the launch of pre-orders and pickups today, and links to all the content previously available at apple.com/ipad via the homepage. The broken out iPod and iTunes section lets Apple focus on the devices (with the iPod touch front and center) on the former, and the iTunes software and store on the latter.
