Scoble Tracks the Ever Growing iCult, Wears Tinfoil Hat

Robert Scoble grabs his camera and heads to the Web 2.0 Summit Party to interview high profile attendees. He says that everyone there seemed to have an iPhone, except for himself. Come on, Robert - you know you want to join the cult. Drink from the fountain of Kool-Aid, it will make you sleepy.

He told me something interesting - not only is it possible, but apparently Yahoo is working (with Apple's support) to bring its mobile services application, called Yahoo Go, to iPhone.

My initial reaction was that he was referring to a Safari web based app. Nope! According to him this is a native home screen application, and it's being tested right now by the mobile team at Yahoo. Gah!

Humiliate Yourself, And Others, With Smooshed Photos

Want a great way to create goofy custom photos of friends and family in your address book, trapping their contorted faces inside your iPhone like a prehistoric fly encased in amber every time they call you? Now you can!

Of course the real trick will be convincing your companions to submit their disfigured mugs for your own amusement. Steve Jobs still hasn't returned my request for his photo. Damn him!

25% of iPhone Users Are Switchers

American Technology Research today reported from sources unknown that more than 25% of iPhone users are "switchers" coming from other wireless carriers. The firm also sees iPhone's potential to lure users to a particular carrier as a stong bargaining chip for Apple as it negotiates exclusive contracts to one lucky European carrier.

You know the execs at Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile have to be drinking lots of pink medicinal liquid right about now.
