iPhone SDK Cometh, So Sayeth BusinessWeek. Developers Cheer and Sing Sea Shanties

iPhone users may experience sudden loss of bladder control in early January. According to sources quoted by BusinessWeek, who are close to the companies plans - sorry BW, the janitorial staff do not count as sources - Apple plans to deliver an SDK at MacWorld, finally opening the platform to software developers. No more of that freakshow hackware stuff, alright?

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.

Well, Apple has a page up with 300 of the new features coming with Leopard on October 26. There are a few of note, one of which was noticed at jkOnTheRun:

Apple Sued, Again

Deep Red iPhone Coming?

Engadget reports that a deep red version of the iPhone is in the works. The report lists a 4GB version available in deep red, but I'll believe a deep red 4GB iPhone when I see it. The best reason that Apple would make a red iPhone is to be part of the PRODUCT (RED) charity for AIDS in Africa, which Apple has done with iPods for quite a while now.

iPhone Owners: Likely Once Treo Owners

figure 1: The Orange Treo 680 is what I used before I got an iPhone. This and a featurephone, actually, for when I wanted to take a non-useless picture of something. I used both AT&T and T-Mobile.


p>Let me put on my Carnac the Magnificent hat and guess that you were on T-Mobile too. There's an interesting survey report done by the NPD group recently that caught my eye, specifically because it names Treos. I still have love for Treos, but I'm off the wagon in terms of using one regularly at least until their Linux OS ships. But here are the fact nuggets that they report:

iPhone and iPod Touch Jailbreaks for 1.1.1

The process for jailbreaking an iPhone manually is pretty involved; Apple's process of securing the iPhone and iPod Touch have made the barrier to entry for installing 3rd party applications on an iPhone much tougher. If you're looking to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod touch in the hopes of installing other applications or non-Apple-sanctioned ringtones, however, there are now some easier ways to do it.

Saucepans and Stew Pots: Study Says Consumers Ditched Treos for iPhones. Sorry, Palm

Alas, poor Palm. You just can't seem to get a break these days, can you? First came that whole embarrassing Foleo fiasco (or Foolio as I like to call it), an ordeal not to be repeated. Then your long overdue Palm OS replacement gets pushed back, twice, not to appear for another 18 months. Now comes this latest report, certain to deliver yet another vigorous blow to the nuts.

Whither iPhone in Canada?

The iPhone faces additional legal issues in Canada before it can make its way onto Rogers. It appears that a plucky little Ontarian telecom named Comwave wants Apple to pony up cash before Apple can use the iPhone trademark. Comwave is currently using the iPhone trademark for VOIP phones and services. The trademark brouhaha is currently playing its way out in CIPO, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. Also, there's currently no public deal with Rogers to carry the iPhone, that could be another stumbling block. Apple probably has to do this dance in every country where they want to sell the iPhone.
