Regarding All Those iPhone on T-Mobile US Stories

Regarding all those iPhone on T-Mobile US stories clogging the interwebs lately: that's all they are -- stories.

Google Looking to Turn YouTube Into iTunes TV Competitor?

Google Looking to Turn YouTube Into iTunes TV Competitor?

According to MediaMemo, Google might be looking to ink an agreement with networks to let YouTube stream TV shows -- for $1.99, just like iTunes (and Amazon).

Of course, when you pay iTunes $1.99 you get a local copy of the TV show on your PC -- to keep -- and the ability to view it from iTunes or Apple TV or iPhone or iPod and back. Now all those devices can hook into YouTube (it's built into Apple TV and iPhone/iPod touch) but do consumers really want to pay the same for a stream as a download, especially if there's no guarantee (yet?) that you can "pay once, stream forever on all devices"?

Fring Brings Video Calls to iPhone

Fring Brings Video Calls to iPhone

Fring [Free - iTunes link] dropped us a note to let us know that with version 3.0.0.4 -- now in the App Store -- they've delivered on their promise of video calls for the iPhone.

Now, since the iPhone doesn't (yet?) have a front-facing camera, you're limited to seeing the other person on a Skype or Fring Video call using their PC webcam (or Nokia phone -- sigh, jealousy), but it's still a wondrous step towards the future.

If you give it a try, let us know how it works for you.

[Thanks to Icebike for the tip!]
