iPhone As Learning Tool and Refrigerator Art. Children Outsmarting Parents

Rakesh Agrawal’s 3 year old daughter devised a clever means for watching instructional videos on her father's iPhone using common refrigerator magnets to mount the device on the fridge. Positioned for just her height, the industrious little scamp uses her iPhone to learn Yo-yo techniques by watching How-to videos from Veronica Belmont of Mahalo Daily. I'm betting Mom and Dad won't be so proud once the 3 year old realizes her invention is patentable and a lucrative product market, enjoying fabulous wealth while her parents are left staring at a empty refrigerator.

Not So Fast, Comrade. Delays Face Chinese iPhone. Rioting Begins In Tienanmen Square

I post a story about iPhone coming to Commiland, and now Reuters steps in with news that iPhone's arrival in China may be delayed by technical (read: Political) and fee (read: money under the table) issues. The gist of this delay centers around iPhone being locked, as apposed to Chinese phones which are unlocked and portable to any GMS carrier. Does anyone else besides me feel utterly ashamed and embarrased that communist mobile phones enjoy more freedom and liberty than our capitalist phones?

Maybe this Communism thing isn't so bad after all... Capitalist pig!

More Jobs Going to China. Steve Jobs, That is

China Mobile Ltd., the country's largest state run cell phone carrier, claims that it is in talks with Apple to bring iPhone to the land of cheap labor and censorship sometime next year. No agreement has yet been reached...so why bother making the announcement?

It's only fitting. American jobs are being exported to China, so why not Steve Jobs? Get it...Steve Jobs, American Jobs? Heh? Oh never mind.

1.1.2 Officially Released Last Night

Here I had thought that Apple released it on Friday, in conjunction with their european iPhone launch. No, they officially launched it Monday night, to little fanfare. Again, there isn't much to this update. It closes the TIFF vulnerability that allows people to easily hack their iPhones at jailbreakme.com, that's about it.

My understanding of feature updates is this: Apple has to dangle the carrot to make official firmwares more compelling than unofficial, hacked firmwares. Are iTunes charging icons and international keyboards going to cut it?

Google Reader Updated for iPhone. Looks Good, Tastes Great

Google rolls out a new iPhone friendly revamp to its popular web based RSS reader. Users are now greeted with a cleaner, more logically designed interface that places key navigation icons on top, for greater accessibility. It still doesn't provide the collapsible tree view that I long for, but it does go a step further towards a better RSS experience. I approve.

Jailbreak for Firmware 1.1.2 Released. Restores Power to The People

The undaunted hacker community has once again foiled Apple's attempts to lock down its platform. Conceited Software (charming name) has released yet another Jailbreak script to free iPhone's latest and rather hidden firmware update; 1.1.2...which can best be described as a DDS upgrade, or Doesn't Do Shit. If you installed this firmware update, which I rarely advise these days, Apple being what it is...then reclaim your unauthorized apps.

Or Apple could simply stop breaking community software, right? Hello?

Round Robin: Windows Mobile Fond Farewell

Of all the smartphones we test during the Smartphone Round Robin, the constraints of our phone exchange is felt most with the Windows Mobile 6 AT&T Tilt. One week is just not enough to get a full grasp on what Windows Mobile can do. If you've read some of my other reviews, you'll hopefully recognize that as a compliment-dig.

Possible iPhone Inspiration


iPhone in Europe

After a full weekend of the iPhone in Europe, how well has the iPhone been doing? Well, T-Mobile reported that they sold 10,000 iPhones on the first day. That's not too shabby; it's not an incredibly high number either, but it's not bad either.
