Mon Dieu! Invasion de l'iPhone! Orange Scores Exclusive Deal with Apple

Bonjour! My name is Jacques. On behalf of the people of France I would just like to say Merci to you Americans for exporting the Suprême iPhone. We French are quite accustomed to pinching and making gestures with our fingers, so the iPhone will be as second nature to us, oui? However, our country already has too many elitist assholes, so you may keep Steve Jobs. Just give us the iPhone and we can forget the unpaid loans you still owe us from the American Revolution. Did you swine think we had forgotten that our King Louis financed your war of independence, and allowed your con man, Benjamin Franklin, to rob our national treasury! Give us iPhone, and we give your freedom... and I don't mean fries, mon ami.

Apple Quietly Responding to Amazon MP3?

Apple has started putting 99¢ DRM-free tracks on sale in iTunes. Usually, DRM free tracks are only available as purchases from iTunes plus and cost $1.29. Assuming this trend continues, I'm glad to see Apple iTunes moving aggressively against Amazon MP3.

Apple iPhone Webapps are Live

Apple has created a searchable directory of mary various online web applications. The service is available at http://www.apple.com/webapps/, and offers over 200 (!) online applications. We had considered doing an online application database very early on, but we didn't. And it now makes me happy that we didn't, for very real. All of the iPhone application list sites are now competitors with a company with very deep pockets.

Apple Launches iPhone Web Apps Directory. Developers LOL

Apple has quietly posted a Safari web app directory, similar to the one for Dashboard Widgets, featuring every available iPhone-optimized web 2.0 service or web app created by human hands. Ok, so these aren't the apps we're looking for, and there are dozens if not hundreds of directory sites in existence already, but let it never be said we iPhone users are in want of a good web browser. Right? crickets chirping

[Update] Amazingly this directory isn't formatted for iPhone. Strange that Apple would build a web app directory for iPhone, designed to be accessed from a desktop.

Fruit Baskets: Apple Set to Open iPhone to Software Development. They Totally Are

Rumors are like falling apples in an orchard - some are perfectly edible, while most are wormy and end up on the ground rotting away, eaten by insects. The Apple rumor mill yields bushel baskets full of both kinds. Today's rumor comes courtesy of Glenn Fleishman of TidBits, who claims to have heard from "sources" (mwaha) that Apple is very close to making a public announcement regarding native application development on iPhone. Naturally his "source" is vague and void of details, which makes it totally credible!

iCrack: iTunes Wi-Fi Store Makes Music Purchase All Too Easy, Dangerously Addictive

With the release of firmware update 1.1.1 came something new to iPhone that I think may prove to be its most insidious feature yet; iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store. Now I know that many of you don't purchase music via iTunes, preferring instead to utilize certain ahem free source, but you may sing a different tune once you start rummaging through genres and newly released content on the screen of your iPhone. For me it's becoming an addiction. I have to force myself not to tap on the lovely purple store icon that beckons me to enter and pay pay pay. iPhone has now become a gateway drug to iTunes.

iRun: Nike+ Sport Kit Coming to iPhone?

Amidst yesterday's news of iPhone Dev Team's successful jailbreak into firmware 1.1.1, came evidence that Apple and Nike are working to bring iPod Nike+ Sport Kit to iPhone. A text string located deep in the bowels of the firmware's .plist file mentions Nike+ as a supported accessory.

Soon joggers will be running along sidewalks with iPhones on armbands. And I'll be ready and waiting to trip them as they pass me by. Damn joggers!.
