Jailbroken iPhone at Apple Store

Someone has snapped a picture of the iPhone with the 3rd party application installer.app icon at an Apple store. It's kinda funny, it really hits home that jailbreaking right now and installing 3rd party apps is as simple as pointing an iPhone at jailbreakme.com.

In other news, February is just 91 days away.

My Second iPhone Has Arrived, Kool-Aid Never Tasted So Good

Time Warner Building iTunes Competitor

Time Warner is building an iTunes competitor. You know, sometimes I get irked when I see websites use the word "competitor" so loosely. The geniuses at Time Warner Cable have had a long time to think about music and they've had a long time to watch Apple's iTunes and mirror its success. So, they've unveiled a service that is:

AT&T: Zero Criticism Tolerance

AT&T has modified their Terms of Service to bar their customers from griping. Their new terms of service now includes language that states they can terminate your connection for doing things that "tends to damage the name or reputation of AT&T, or its parents, affiliates and subsidiaries." An important distinction: the threat gag is just for the DSL portion of AT&T, aka BellSouth.

I don't expect it to work; actually, I expect it to backfire. Case in point, I'm going to slur the name of AT&T in this very sentence when I would not have otherwise:

What Hast Thou Done to my iPhone?

I don't know who shares the most blame in this triad of technical blunders; Apple for it's strong arm tactics...iPhone Dev Team for their malfunctioning anySIM unlock app...Or myself for ever engaging in this exercise. A pragmatist would say I am solely to blame, but I am anything but pragmatic.

Bill Maher Calls Me a Dipshit, and a Virgin. There Goes my Self-esteem

Well known comedian, and marijuana advocate, Bill Maher humiliates iPhone fanboys still rabid over iPhone's $200 price cut. Maher goes on to call angry early adopters "dipshits" for having stood in line for a hours to buy a phone, and tells us to stop our bitching. His commentary is delightful and insulting, as always.

Sorry, Bill. I can't hear you over the sound of how awesome my iPhone is.
