AT&T Downgrading Original iPhone 2G Service

Still got that original iPhone 2G running on AT&T? Get ready to suffer, luddite! Gizmodo reports on OFB's findings:

Timothy Butler over at OFB did some sleuthing and found that AT&T is downgrading its EDGE/2G service to the weaker 1900 MHz band. Their response to those with newly-lousy service? Buy a new phone.

Specifically, the weaker band means less bars in less places, like inside homes and offices and, out of the way regions -- like maybe where you are?

Macworld Expo 2009 (Under Construction)

Preparations are being made, packing and unpacking is being done -- and from these pics posted by SetteB.it (via Giz) we can see Apple is mounting their last ever Macworld booth (aka Apple Store Mobile). 2007 was the iPhone. 2008 was the MacBook Air and Time Capsule. 2009 will be... whatever's lurking beneath those pantone black curtains?

iPhone nano? Media server? New Nvidia-powered iMacs and Mac Minis? Netbooks? iTablets? Steve Jobs with a full-on puppeteering kit for the new, animatronic iPhil?

We'll find out in a couple days, and TiPb will be there live to cover it!

Meanwhile, looks like January 4, 2010 will be the kickoff time next year. And as for the theme? Check it out, after the jump...

Forget the iSlider Keyboard, Howsabout the iPhone iClamshell?!

Last time Gizmodo gave us their version of an iPhone iSlider form factor. We. Didn't. Want. It. Now they're back with a compromise: a modular iPhone that could accept, among other things, a snap-on keyboard iClamshell.

Next week is the first big Apple show of the year, and it's also Apple's last Macworld appearance, and the first not to be keynoted by Steve Jobs since his triumphant return to the company he founded.

But while his Steveness may not be there, Dieter and I (and maybe some of our writers) will be, bringing you our usual coverage of the Schiller-note (how weird does that look?!) and the show floor.

Google Mobile App Sneaks in Bells and Whistles!

Those rapscallions at Google sure do seem to be having fun with the iPhone. Not only did they pull a fast one on Apple by using private API's to work their lift-the-phone-to-activate-voice-search magic, they snuck a little super-swipe activated easter egg in for the rest of us!

Patent Watch: Apple iGloves for Toasty iPhone Tapping

Well, technically, they need the electric field around skin, and yet another Apple patent makes it seem like the iPhone team is figuring out a way for us to stay warm and still enjoy the multi-touch lifestyle.

iPhone Hard Keyboard... the Hard Way

Not only has the iPhone 3G finally been unlocked, it's now also been hacked to work with a Blue Tooth keyboard. Sure, it's not the elegant, Apple, "it just works" solution the world at large has been waiting for, but a "it's hard work" solution for those desperate and ingenious enough to tackle it.
