Mac611 Puts The Fun Back in Tech Support, Right From Your iPhone

Dave Merten from MacOSG informs me that he has created a new web app for iPhone that provides instant access to support guides right from your iPhone. It's called Mac611 (shouldn't that be 911?). Check it out for yourself, or better still... break your Mac and try to fix it using this service. I'm going to the tool shed now to get my sledgehammer.

iPhone 1.1.2 / UK O2 Details

Details of the iPhone's launch in the UK is spilling out rapidly, and O2 are making some last changes in preparation for iPhone's arrival. Their CEO granted an interview that gives a peek into Apple's carrier selection process. O2 has changed the way that they deal with limited "unlimited" plans -- they still limit them, but at least they will give users a warning before they punt people away. And lastly, UK gadget magazine tried out the iPhone for a while, and they have information about the 1.1.2, the upcoming firmware update and iTunes 7.5.

Apple Protecting iPhone Trademark

Apple Legal has been busy in the past few days. Apple has officially begun protecting their iPhone Trademark. MY iTablet -- once MYiPhone -- changed their name on the advice of Jobs himself. And it appears that some of the other blog sites have now received contact letters from Apple lawyers.

In the U.S. system of intellectual property law, if you don't actively protect your copyrights and trademarks, you lose them. Apple has to do this. I'm sure Apple isn't excited about taking iPhone community sites to court, but they have to do what they have to do.

Time Names iPhone Invention of the Year, Greg Packer Man of the Year

Time Magazine has named iPhone "Invention of the Year", a title shared with... well I don't recall Time ever bestowing that award on any product, but this is after all the same publication that once named Adolf Hitler Man of the year, and me (or rather everyone) Person of the year.

Invention of the year is an overstated understatement. Any product that has educated adults behaving like pre-teens camped outside retails stores for days on end, and turns slobs into celebrities, is an achievement unrivaled by any other medium. Invention of the Century would be more fitting.

iPhone Security Whinging


figure 1: Munir Kotadia of ZDNet Australia.

The good folks of MYiTablet found an article from ZDNet Australia where Munir Kotadia lambasts "greedy Apple users" for trusting anyone.

"There is no evidence to suggest that this particular jailbreak utility is at all malicious but how long will it be before copycat sites appear that have less honourable intentions?"

iPhone: Time Invention of the Year

<

p>Time has declared the iPhone their Invention of the Year.

"Yes, there's been a lot of hype written about the iPhone, and a lot of guff too. So much so that it seems weird to add more, after Danny Fanboy and Bobby McBlogger have had their day."

Nice! In one fell swoop, they've insulted me and any readers. Not too shabby, and they still get the link. Anyway, they give five reasons and then justify it all in the essence of their article:

Weird LG iPhone Clone Design

I'll admit that I don't get the point of this LG design. They basically just dropped an iPhone / LG Prada into a weird keyboard dock. The screen would be tiny, and I'm guessing a lot of folks would miss tactile feedback on a desktop or laptop-sized keyboard much more than they would on a mobile.

iPhone Australia: Telstra Talks

iPhone First Looks at TreoCentral

I just wanted to highlight Jennifer Chappell's excellent article at TreoCentral. Jennifer is the editor at TreoCentral, and usually uses a Treo 680, much like I once did. She's been taking the iPhone through its paces, and her excellent first look article is now up.

<

p> This review is more relevant than most out there, as iPhone owners were 10 times more likely to have used a Treo prior to the iPhone. I got bitten by the iPhone bug, and bitten hard. Using a Treo in the next week or so is going to be interesting.

DIY: Dutch Modder Paints iPhone Black, Vows Never To Go Back

The iPhone is a stunning piece of industrial design that screams taste and style. So what better way to modify a beautiful product than ugly it up with black spray paint and faux classic rainbow Apple logo, in a style reminiscent of the Newton. At least this guy won't have to worry about someone stealing his iPhone. Unless he lives in the UK, of course.
